My 2015 couples have been killing their engagement sessions! If this is any indication of the upcoming wedding season, I am in store for a beautiful New Year.

When Carley asked me if sequins photographed well, I got excited, like REALLY excited!! I love when my couples show off their style, and this look as beyond perfect for Carley’s bright a warm personality. I know I say this after every shoot, but I had such a great time with these two!! They come alive when they are together, and you can just feel their connection through the photos.

So excited for these love birds, and I cannot wait for their wedding next year with Pure Lavish Events!

As my 2014 wedding season comes to a close, I think it’s about time for another dose of behind the scenes photos! What happens behind the camera is often silly, strange, and just plain hilarious. While editing each wedding, I come across these photos taken by my second shooters, many which make me laugh out loud. I’m a big believer of not taking life too seriously, so in the spirit of laughing at yourself…

  • Carrie traver - Oh my word these are great!!! The one of you to right of the couple cutting the cake is priceless!!!!

  • Rachelle - Love these features! Your facial expressions crack me up! ;)

I love when my couples come to me with an idea for their engagement session. Julia and Ben wanted to incorporate a downtown coffee shop vibe into their shoot, and found THE CUTEST location to help bring their vision to life. In addition to some killer styling (great job guys), and being all around naturals in front of the camera, this cozy session was such a joy to photograph.

Looking through these pictures make me want to cuddle up with my favorite book and a cup of joe. So grab something hot to drink, sit back, and relax while I share just a few of my favorites from this lovely shoot. Special thanks to Dee with Swell Beauty for hair and makeup.

  • Brandi Welles - So much to love about this shoot! Adorable couple and amazing photos Kaysha!

  • John - Such a cute couple! Love the photo’s! Awesome jobs!

  • Rachelle - Such a cute location and couple! :)

My favorite part of this time of year is reconnecting with past clients for lifestyle sessions. It is always so fun to see how much little ones have changed, and watch families grow. You might remember this sweet family from their maternity session at the beginning of the year. This was my first time meeting their little girl in person and it was certainly worth the wait, because she is beyond adorable!

They took advantage of my yearly mini session special, and in 30 minutes we were able to capture so many sweet moments. If you are interested in being the first to know about my fall mini sessions and seasonal specials, you can sign up for my VIP list HERE to snag these once a year sessions.

  • rachelle - What a cute family! Love the natural setting and those big baby blues that Dad and baby share. So sweet!!

These two make me smile. Not only are they a blast to be around, but their playful relationship really shines through. For their engagement session they wanted to incorporate their bikes and adorable pups, so the Back Bay was the perfect location to spend a few hours laughing and exploring.

I love the simplicity of this session. The location, the props, everything came together flawlessly and I cannot wait for these two to tie the knot next year with the help of Pure Lavish Events! Here are just a few of my favorite photos from their lovely engagement shoot.
