Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

2015 has been the year of little girls, so I was thrilled to photograph handsome Seamus last week with his very proud parents. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again… I love newborns sessions! They are so different than anything else I photograph, it’s always so rewarding when I get the photos I’ve envisioned in my head (even if it takes a few hours to get the little ones to sleep).

Get ready for lots of cuteness (and even some nursery inspiration), meet baby Seamus!

An engagement shoot in 30 minutes? No problem! Especially when you have a beautiful afternoon in Laguna Beach, and two people in love!

Taylor and Tever rocked their mini engagement shoot. The camera loves these two, and you’ll quickly see why… they’re affectionate, fun, and even up for getting a little wet (sorry Trevor)! I cannot wait to see them tie the knot in November, and of course get them back in front of my camera for more goodness! :)

  • Rachelle Hobbs - Beautiful light, couple and location! Laguna looks great on everyone! ;)

I have never experienced a wedding with more laughter than Anne and Ryan’s! Their guests were in stitches during the ceremony, as their officiant recounted Ryan’s proposal to Anne while being detained by airport security on an international trip. This perfectly sums up them as a couple, because they are always smiling and laughing at each other, even while in airport jail!

Their wedding last month at the stunning Mt. Woodson Castle was beyond dreamy, with pink bridesmaid dresses and blooms by Bespoke. This was such a unique location full of so much charm and character, making it the perfect location for Anne and Ryan to tie the knot! I can’t get enough of their photos, and I’m thrilled to share a fe of my favorite moments with you today.

  • wINI DE lANGE - These pictures are amazing!!!

  • Rodney - These photos are wonderful. I like your composition and how you used the natural light. I think you captured the family expressions so beautifully. One of my favorite photos is of the bride and groom walking out of the building. The moment you captured her with her arms up and the silhoutte of the wedding dress looks amazing. My co-worker (the mother of the bride) had a huge smile while showing me your photography blog. Great work and I look forward to seeing the rest of your blog.

    Sincerely,

    Rodney

If there is one word I could use to describe Sarah and Nate, it would be genuine. They are the kind of couple that melts my heart, and makes me love my job just a little bit more!

I was expecting a heartfelt day, but these two completely blew me out of the water. Sarah was a vision in her BHLDN gown, and with a little help from Serene Bridal Beauty was absolutely glowing. Nate looked especially dapper in his charcoal suit and black bow tie, but what really made the day was how much fun they had. There were lots of happy tears shed and even more laughter, and if you ask me that is sign of a flawless wedding!

  • Sarah Chetty - You know how to capture Nate and I SO well, Kaysha. We will cherish these forever and ever. It’s so fun to see a lot of the stuff I didn’t get to see while I was in the Bridal Suite or getting ready and whatnot. Thank you again Kaysha, you are THE BEST.

  • Nate's mom - Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures!! Not that we’re biased or anything, considering they’re our kids, but the pictures are simply breath taking!

  • Rick Flournoy - Nate and Sarah,
    Great photos of you both. Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day (I would’ve been there regardless). :) Wishing you both all happiness!

    Rick

  • SHelly chetty - Kaysha, you did a fabulous job capturing the lively spirit of the day… Sarah and Nathan chose well… Both when they chose each other, and when they chose you as their wedding photographer. Well-done.
