Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

The best part of traveling for a destination wedding is getting to explore a new part of the world. I have always heard so many wonderful things about Maine, but boy were my expectations blown away! Each town is more beautiful than the next, with sprawling fields, and adorable farmhouses around every corner. To say it’s a photographers dream is a huge understatement!

While going for a run around the neighborhood I came across this wonderfully dilapidated and rundown building. It was perfect, and I knew I had to photograph Katie and Sazi there. Thankfully there were just as excited as I am, and this 30 minute shoot alone was worth the travel time to Maine.

  • Brandi welles - GORGEOUS!!! Seriously makes me want to move out of CA. :-P

  • Katie (bride) - Kaysha, You are not only a great friend but an AMAZING photographer! Thank you SO much for capturing our special weekend. xx Katie & Sazi

  • kelley simpson - So beautiful! Great job, It makes me want to live there!

  • Rachelle - Goregous!! Congrats Katie and Yazi, wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!!

This is officially my first engagement session for my 2015 wedding season, and boy did Sarah and Nate get me excited for next year!! At first mention, a shoot at a parking garage doesn’t sound pretty… but hang in there with me. Picture downtown Los Angeles in the distance, an adorable couple, and lots of pretty light.

Yep, it was awesome, modern, and oh so perfect for these two! They have set the bar VERY high for my 2015 couples. If your trying to find a location for your shoot, think past the typical spots and choose something that suits your likes and relationship. I’m always up for a challenge, and as Nate said during our shoot “the best results come from challenging yourself.” I couldn’t agree more!

  • Rachelle - Love that quote “The best things come from challenging yourself”. Such a fun location with a stunning backdrop! Can’t wait to see what these two have in store for their big day! ;)

From time to time I get the opportunity to travel for weddings and shoots. I mostly stick to the Southern California region, but earlier this year I flew to Seattle for this oh so chic celebration. As luck would have it, I am preparing for yet another destination wedding!

This time I’m traveling all the way across the country to beautiful Maine. Both my parents grew up on the East Coast so I am thrilled to finally be able to explore a piece of their childhood, eat lots of lobster, and capture two very special people tie the knot. If you’d like to keep up with my adventures be sure to follow me on Instagram, and I look forward to connecting with everyone when I return.

This is a friendly reminder that I’ll be traveling for a destination wedding until September 8th. For all my clients, please note I will have limited access to email during this time, but I will do my best to get back to you ASAP!  :)

Alyson and Scott are the kind of couple that made me fall in love with photographing weddings in the first place. They are trusting, gracious, all around amazing people, and they happen to be head over heals in love. This combination always pulls on my heart strings, and makes me insanely thankful to call this my job!

Not only were Alyson and Scott a dream to work with, but they picked some of my VERY favorite vendors to bring their dream wedding to life. Pure Lavish Events, Florals by Jenny, Flawless Faces and my very own wedding DJ, Angel from Extreme DJ! This dream team helped make their day a beautiful success, full of so much love, support, and heaps of pretty details.

Join me in wishing these two special people a lifetime of love, laughter, and UCLA tailgating. :)

  • Rachelle - What a beautiful wedding! Loved all the details. :)

I think the last time we had a family get together was at my wedding… almost 2 years ago! So to say this visit is overdue is a huge understatement. Over the next week I will taking a much-needed vacation with my family in beautiful Lake Tahoe to relax, refresh, and take in as much of that blue water as possible. If you’d like to keep up with our adventures be sure to follow me on Instagram, and I look forward to connecting with everyone when I return.

This is a friendly reminder that I’ll be traveling until August 25th. For all my clients, please note I will have limited access to email during this time, but I will do my best to get back to you ASAP!  :)
