Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

After talking with Samantha and Ryan on the phone, I knew they were my kind of couple! They shared with me the story of their sentimental engagement, the plans for their intimate wedding, and their love of food. Doesn’t get much better in my book! ;)

Right before Christmas we snuck away from the holiday madness, and explored a patch of Redwood trees together. This was a welcome break, and felt like we were in a completely different part of California. I seriously can’t wait to see what The Joy Parade helps Samantha and Ryan create for their upcoming wedding. If it’s anything like their engagement shoot, I’ll be one happy photographer! ;)

  • Rachelle - I love the woodsy feel, such a cozy place to share your love! Beautiful work Kaysha!

Alright ladies, this ones for you! You may have been curious about boudoir photography in the past, or maybe you’ve just been waiting for the perfect moment. I’m a strong believer that there is no time better than the present, so what are you waiting for?

Orange-County-Boudoir-Photography-by-Kaysha-WeinerI know the idea of getting nearly naked while someone takes your photo sounds like the stuff of nightmares, but I promise it’s not as scary as you’d think! I love seeing women leave their sessions with a pep in their step, beaming with confidence. It’s a freeing day, and my goal is to show you (yes, YOU) how beautiful you truly are!!

From now until the end of February I’m offering 10% off all boudoir sessions (your shoot must take place before March 15th). This is just in time for Valentines Day, a gift for your future husband, or just because you want to look and feel fabulous in your skin. Contact me and I’ll be happy to walk you through all the details.

  • Lexi lawrence - Very interested in the boudior shoot! Please email me back with details!

  • Neal - so so so very cool. Keep outflowing and sharing what you offer!
    your marketing is great!
    Much love DAD

What do you get when you combine two of my favorites things? One seriously epic engagement sessions at the delicious Love & Salt restaurant in Manhattan Beach, of course!

Amanda and Cameron are my kind of people, meaning they love life, food, and each other. I instantly connected with Amanda when I first met her, and Cameron certainly lived up to all the wonderful things Amanda told me about him! ;) Since they are both such foodies, doing their engagement session at a restaurant was the perfect fit. As luck would have it, one of my past brides is the Assistant General Manager at Love & Salt, and graciously allowed us to photograph inside (thank you Mel xoxo). Not only is this place beautiful, but the food is innnnnncredible! Seriously, go eat there NOW!

Just looking through these photos makes me happy (and a little hungry). I will be counting down the days till Amanda and Cameron’s wedding with The Joy Parade. Not only will it be beautiful, but I just can’t wait to hang out with these two again soon!

I have to admit, many times throughout 2015 I was running on fumes. I set out to really push myself, my boundaries, and what I thought was possible for my business and life. This meant many late nights, emotional breakdowns, and putting plenty of wear on not only my camera gear, but my beloved Prius. From Santa Barbara to San Diego, and everywhere in between, I crisscrossed all of Southern California for weddings and shoots.

2015 was an adventure to say the least. But when I look back on what was created, I wouldn’t change a thing. Was it easy? Of course not. In the midst of the craziness, I found my “groove” so to speak, and really started to enjoy the ride.

So here’s to 2015, the people who helped keep me sane, the clients who inspired me, and the adventures that await! Happy New Year!

Crystal & Tommy’s St. Regis Monarch Beach Wedding

  • Rachel Troccoli - You know my favorite ;) but I love all of these! You are so wonderfully talented and just awesome all around! I can’t wait to see what next year brings for you!

  • Tiffany - What a beautiful variety of wedding styles. You captured such beautiful moments of each couples’ special day.

My last wedding of 2015, hard to believe we are already here! I honestly can’t think of a better way to close out the year than with Taylor and Trevor’s Cinderella inspired Nixon Library wedding. With nods to Disney, blue accents, and more fairytale pumpkins than you can count, this was truly a magical day. Thanks to the help of Agape Planning, Flower Allie and Found Rentals, the Nixon Library’s East Ballroom never looked better.

Working with Taylor and Trevor was such a treat, their enthusiasm for their wedding and commitment to their relationship was contagious. Get ready for lots of swoon worthy details, and one VERY in love couple!
