When your couple suggests mini golf for their engagement session, you know it will be an awesome afternoon! This was such an nice change of pace, and so perfect for Anne and Ryan’s playful, fun loving relationship. It’s clear these two have a great time together wherever they go, and this happened to be the location of one of their very first dates…. awwww!

I adore this idea and when my couples think outside of the box for their engagement (and wedding day). Not only did we get to take some whimsical photos around the course, but what better way to warm up for your session then with a round of mini golf?

I cannot wait to see what they have planned for their wedding next year, and I’m thrilled to share a few of their adore engagement photos with you today.


  • Rachelle - Such a fun place for an engagement shot! Love the ring shot, so beautiful!!

I could photograph at The Retro Ranch every day and not get tired of it! This place just keeps getting better and better. Lucky for me, Kristen and Alex are getting married on these lovely grounds and wanted to mark the occasion by doing their engagement photos here as well.

This was my first time meeting Kristen and Alex in person, and I quickly learned they are naturals in front of the camera and so cute together! I had a blast exploring more of Retro Ranch with them while chatting about honeymoon locations, our favorite foods, and everything in between. It was a perfect afternoon and I cannot wait to do it again next year.


  • Brandi Lemon - Adorable shoot! Love the last frame! :)

  • Kristen schirm - I love it! Thank you so much Kaysha for the beautiful pictures it was such a special day and I could not be happier with the way they turned out!!

  • pure lavish events - LOVE LOVE!! They came out so great! Kristen you are a natural!! Can’t wait for the wedding day!!

  • Rachelle - Love everything about this shoot! From the cute trailer to the cowboy boots, rustic and fun all the way!!

Everything about this adorable engagement shoot has me ready for fall. Just looking through the photos makes me want to curl up with a cup of hot apple cider, and a good book.

Can I just say how excited I am for Rachel and Michael!?! Last year I photographed Rachel’s sisters wedding, and it’s a huge honor when I get to work with the same family again. Especially Rachel’s family who I adore, and are made up of some of the kindest people around. For their engagement, we found the perfect Redwood grove hidden within the Southern California desert to bring their camping inspiration to life.

While I dream of cooler weather, riding boots, and changing leaves, take a peak into a few of my very favorite moments from Rachel and Michael’s cozy shoot.


  • Rachel - Yay!!! I LOVE the pictures. You are amazing! You’re so talented and such a pleasure to work with :D Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Katy Chisom - Wow! What a handsome couple with such a creative theme. And Kaysha, you are truly an amazing photographer who really captured both Mike and Rachel in such a realistic way. I cannot wait until the wedding in May!

  • Rachelle - Love the cozy romantic feeling!! Can’t wait to see what these two have planned for the big day!!

Not only is Carrie one of my absolute favorite wedding planners, but over the last few years has become a friend and someone I admire greatly. I’ve been eagerly awaiting her wedding for months, especially after their motorcycle engagement session, which was one of my favorites to date. The camera certainly loves these two, but what really stuck me is the connection Carrie and Justin have. It’s like they are in their own world of inside jokes, stolen glances and undeniable excitement to be together. Their wedding was the perfect reflection of their relationship, and I loved seeing all their family and friends come together to celebrate their union.

When someone in the wedding industry gets married, you know it’s going to not only be a gorgeous day but are damn good time! It was beyond fun working alongside Pure Lavish EventsFlorals by Jenny, and shooting at the incredibly cool Retro Ranch. I’m so excited to share their wedding with you today, and even more thrilled to watch Carrie and Justin’s bright future together unfold. Congrats again you two, love you!! xoxo
