Your moments, memories, loved ones, and emotions are pieces of your life and story. It's not just a pretty photo to share on social media but a place that feels like home and reminds you of every part of your life and the seasons you were in. To document these moments is to preserve a piece of you and your loved ones so you can look back on them over time and remember what it felt like to be there, how it felt to hug your loved ones close and the parts of you that are irreplicable. 

When time has passed and loved ones aren't near, these are the moments and photos you will have to feel that warmth again.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

The prompts are so fun and Kya’s personality makes the experience even more fun! 

My fiancé and I didn’t know what to expect, but we were blown away by the super fun and natural approach she takes. If you’re looking for a photographer that won’t make posing awkward, look no further.

Renee + Spencer

Kya is the best photographer around! 

She makes every session super fun and enjoyable! She’s got great energy and knows how to get her clients to show genuine emotion and feel as comfortable as possible- she ROCKS!!!

Christina + Logan

We will forever use Kya for every special occasion, she is the best! 

Kya is amazing! She took our maternity and family photos, and each picture turned out absolutely perfect. She also makes every session we had with her super comfortable and fun!

Madison + Jacob

Kya is such an awesome and bubbly person.

She is very easy to work with as well! I’ve been following her work on Instagram for a while and I’m thankful for the special photos that she captured of my fiancé and I with our animal babies.

Jennifer + Robby

Not only did Kya Liann fly thousands of miles to shoot my wedding, she was the best photographer for the big day. 

She was intuitive, efficient, and incredibly creative. I am overwhelmed with her attention to detail and her ability to capture such a momentous day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, our wedding would not have been the same without you.

Jessie + Kalama

She even was SO KIND as to bring a bottle of water for our dogs who were hiking with us for pictures.

She made the little things count and provided countless laughs which were beautifully portrayed in our photos. I highly recommend Kya as a photographer, whatever you’re envisioning, she’s on it! She possesses such a talent and truly has her clients best interests and visions in mind. We’re so grateful to her for making our engagement session dreams come true!

Save the date
& planning here

It all starts with a discovery call

Let's grab a drink and video chat about who we are and who you are and all the wedding details in between. One of the most important things is making sure we click and vibe with each other so it feels more like friends on your day vs just a vendor. We are with you all day so it should be fun to be around us and a hell yes!

You celebrate with your dream photos

Locking in your wedding date in our calendar, planning your couples session to capture the everyday moments that tell your story and meet before your big day as well as guides galore to help with all the planning and more! We will also have a call prior to your wedding to discuss and help plan your timeline for your day to help you have the support so you can be 100% present the day of. 

Celebrating you both on your day, capturing all the moments and supporting you with everything in between; dress bustling and boutonniere applying experts right here. Then all the behind the scenes magic begins creating your art and editing your gallery. From there when you receive your full gallery you'll have full access to share with family and friends! 


We don't want to be another vendor; we want to be your friend with all the wedding knowledge but can still laugh and fully be yourself. Storytelling is the art of letting you be fully present while we guide and give you the time to be fully embraced in the magic of marrying your best friend



Process and how we work with you

How many and how long depends on the wedding or session such as an engagement and hours I am with you, I don't limit the amount of images, it could be anywhere from 6-12 weeks, and from 80-1000+ photos. If you are curious based on your session don't be afraid to ask! 


Travel fees are included for most of Michigan. If you are traveling up north no worries! When you inquire with us just make sure to mention where and we will let you know the total cost so everything is upfront and clear right away including travel fees for destinations outside of Michigan. 


We will have a consultation aka a virtual coffee chat before the session that allows us to get to know each other better. That way we can ease any nerves and get a better idea of my creative style and be more like friends than strangers. Also if drinks are your thing that works too! :)

I'm nervous about my session.
what do you suggest?

You will receive a digital copy of all the high resolution images in an online gallery. You will also be given a print release which allows you to print your images however you like.

how do we recieve our images?
can we print them?

I require a 25% non-refundable retainer at the time of booking + signing your contract. The remaining payment is due 1 month prior to your wedding or 2 weeks from your session date. I accept online payments through Honeybook. Payment plans can be set up as well at no added cost. 

How does payment work?
Do you have payment plans?

We are located in Metro Detroit. We travel all throughout Michigan as well as Islands to Mountains. We have been to some incredible destinations to document moments and would love to travel to you!

where are you located? do you travel?
