Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

As I head into my 4th wedding season working full time for myself, I’m oddly nervous. Each year brings new goals, lessons and experiences, many wonderful and others painful. If I’ve learned anything other the last few years, it’s to expect the unexpected. My journey as a small business owner has been more challenging than anything I’ve ever done, but with that challenge comes rewards I could have never anticipated. Many of which revolve around the relationships I’ve created with my couples, vendors and families. I am so incredibly grateful to each and every person who trusts my vision, and allows me into their lives. That has truly been the greatest gift this experience has given me.

I’ve learned to roll with the punches, trust my gut and push myself past my insecurities… each and every day. To say its a struggle is an understatement, but it’s always been my labor of love, and I honestly wouldn’t choose another path if I could.

In the next few weeks I’ll be announcing some exciting and fantastic transformations coming to Kaysha Weiner Photographer! So here’s to more adventures full of laughter, days overflowing with love, and embracing the changes ahead.

Here a look into one of the biggest changes in store for 2014!

  • Sakura - I’m excited to hear the big news! Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s amazing…just like all your images!

  • Rachelle - Can’t wait to see what you have planned for 2014!! :)

Oh, how I adore these two! Brooke and Brett are too much fun, and I loved every moment of their maternity shoot! From the stunning locations, to the rich colors, it was the perfect day. Join me is wishing the parents to be a joyful and wonderful journey ahead, and take a peek at a few of my favorite frames.

  • Rachelle - Love the oranges, orchard and baby name sign. Too cute! I hope we get to see the little one in a newborn shoot soon! :)

I cannot believe it’s been over a year since my last behind the scenes post! So without further ado, it’s time for another installment of awkward, funny, and just plain weird photos of what happens behind the camera.

If I’ve learned anything over the years, I’m certain wedding days should be filled with lots of laughter, big hugs, and a healthy dose of silly never hurt anyone. ;)

  • Rachelle - Love seeing you in action!!

I have so much to look forward to this year, and with each passing engagement session I get more and more excited for my wedding season to start. These two are a huge part of why I’m so thrilled for this years group of couples! They are incredibly sweet, silly, and head over heals in love (the perfect combo in my mind). I’ve known this beautiful lady for a few years and I’ve honestly never seen her happier, he really brings out the best in her.

  • Katie Weber - Love these pictures!!! :)

  • Cindy Maiden - Beautiful pics of Jenn and Chad! Love the surroundings.

  • Rachelle - Beautiful!! Love the warm light and rustic natural setting! Stunning work Kaysha!!

At the close of each year, the universal feeling is to end things with a bang. Something that culminates the year completed, and get’s you excited for what’s ahead. This can be a party, day of relaxation, or in my case a wedding. Carolina and Jeffrey’s wedding was the last of 2013, and I couldn’t think of a better way to end my season!

Their day was the perfect mix of winery charm and personal touches (many of which Jeffrey handmade). From Carolina’s “something blue” heals, to beautiful Temecula valley, it was a perfect Southern California winter wedding. Plus Carolina and Jeffrey happen to be two of the nicest people around, so naturally it was a delightful day spent photographing two people in love.

I adore days like this…
