Wedding Photographer Los Angeles | Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

More often than not, when I take a moment to look at my life I am surprised. Surprised I’ve been a wedding photographer for over 6 years. Surprised that I get to work with some of the most inspiring and creative people around. Surprised that my couples are so appreciative. Surprised that I still strive to work harder and be better at my craft, ever single day.


We live in such a fast paced world that we rarely give ourselves a moment to reflect. To think about our lives, the direction we are heading, and what truly makes us happy. I’m thankful to not only call my career a passion, but my passion has become my entire career.

Working with couples and families has given me so much joy. Not just because I get to document their story, but because I can be a positive force in their lives, regardless of what stage they may be in. Taking nice photos is a given, but if my clients walk away knowing that I had their backs and did everything in my power to give them the best possible experience then my job is complete.

I work hard for my clients, but I’ve come to realize what they have given me is much more than an income. They have been my cheerleaders, they have become my friends, and continue to be my greatest source of inspiration. My heart is full because of them, and I want to take a moment to just say THANK YOU!! Thank you for believing, trusting, and supporting me on their crazy, wonderful journey. It truly means the world to me! xoxo

  • Rachelle - I treasure every image you have taken of me and my family! You are an artist in every sense of the word! Thank you for all the beautiful images you bring into the world! XOXO

For many couples the story of their relationship started long before the engagement. For Dawn and Kevin this couldn’t be more true. They have been dating for 9 years, and on a beautiful Saturday in Temecula they finally took the plunge and became husband and wife at their Lake Oak Meadows Wedding.

Over the years of their relationship they have grown up together, and their bond has only strengthened. Spend only a few minutes with these two and it’s clear they are the perfect compliment to one another. Dawn is beautiful, smart, calm, and prefers to leave the lime light to Kevin. Thankfully Kevin is the life of every party, and you can’t help but adore him!

Their Temecula wedding was beyond dreamy, full of so much joy, laughter, and celebration – exactly how it should be! Here is a look into just a few of my favorite moments from their big day, I hope you enjoy!

  • Rachelle - I love the bright blue suites and neutral bridesmaids gowns. Beautiful wedding! Congrats to the new couple! :)

Intimate weddings are my favorite! I just adore when a couple chooses to only invite their closest family and friends. The vibe of the entire wedding is different, in the best possible way. I feel like it encourages people to be truly present during the celebration, and enjoy every moment.


Vanessa and Justin weren’t concerned with having a traditional wedding, they wanted to bring their closest family and friends together for a celebration. In my opinion this is always a good idea, but when you plan your wedding at Crystal Cove over looking the ocean, then it becomes a GREAT idea. The weather was a dream, the food was delicious, and everyone danced the night away. It was truly one of those perfect weddings, and the cherry on top to an awesome weekend!

Instead of starting the day with getting ready, Vanessa and Justin opted to begin coverage with their first look. This non-tradional approach made me smile, and I just adore when my couples choose to do a first look. I’m thrilled to share the a glimpse into their flawless day with you today! Special thanks to all the incredible vendors who made the day flow so beautifully!

  • Rachelle - What a beautiful wedding! Loved the location and beautiful purple details. :)

Franciscan Gardens will always hold a very special place in my heart. 3.5 years ago my husband and I were married here, and I have so many happy memories in this courtyard. So naturally I couldn’t wait to see Ashley and Sean create the same happy memories we experienced here.


Weddings are typically a joyous occasion, but for Ashley and Sean it was a day FULL of laughter. As I walked into Franciscan Gardens the first thing I heard was bellowing laugher coming from both the bridal and grooms suites. This continued throughout their celebration as family and guests happily joined in. I have no doubt that is laughter will serve them well in their marriage, and will be a constant reminder of not only the love they share for each other, but the fun they have when together.

With the help of a truly amazing vendor team, the day came together flawlessly, and I am beyond excited to share a few highlights from their big day. Join me in wishing these two a lifetime of laughter together!

When I first started photographing weddings I was stressed out beyond belief. There was so much pressure, countless “must have” images to take, and lots of people to gather and organize. All while trying to capture beautiful photographs in challenging circumstances, weekend after weekend. Can you say overwhelming?


In retrospect, I’m surprised I made it through my first few years as a wedding photographer. I was a brand new business, and the fear that I wasn’t good enough was immense. I knew I couldn’t be the best in the world, but I quickly realized I COULD be the best photographer for my couples! If I could walk away from each wedding knowing that I did the best possible job to capture their day and support my couples through the process, that would be good enough for me.

To this day, I still shoot with this in forefront of my mind. Not all weddings are created the same, and each has their own unique challenges from a photography perspective. For me, it’s all about being better than I was yesterday, and giving my all for each of my wonderful couples. I may never be “the best” but I can continually give MY best, this is my ultimate goal.
