Featured on Trash the Dress!

Hey everyone!

I’ve been missing in action! Vacationing actually, in Hawaii with my sister, Sarah.  I’m heading home tomorrow afternoon, and then hopping back on a plane to fly to Caifornia.  Ryan and I are photographing USC’s graduation and then heading up for a tour of wine country.  🙂

But the exciting news is that I’m the featured photographer on the Trash the Dress website!  Mark Eric was nice enough to post some of my images on his fabulous website, so go check it out! 

*EDIT*  Sadly, if you have Internet Explorer it seems to only bring up the first image.  Safari brings up a bunch…I’m sad to think that most people will only see the first pic!  Hopefully they’ll get it fixed but by then it’ll be buried under a bunch of other posts.

Some more super exciting news is that on May 22 and 23 I’ll be attending a fabulous seminar hosted by the incredible Susan Stripling!  I’ll be learning lighting techniques, photoshop tricks and all kinds of other stuff.  Susan lives in Tallahassee and runs her studio there, but shoots mostly destination weddings all around the country.  She’s been one of the most inspiring photographers for my career, so I’m beyond excited to meet and work with her for 2 days!  More on that later!

I’ll leave you with a couple pictures from Hawaii, the view from a hike we went on:

Happy Clients


The BEST investment I made for our wedding day was definitely booking Kylene and Ryan Studios! It was such a blessing to have you both there to capture all of the PERFECT moments of that day. You all made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the lens and all around were pleasant to be around.


Kylene and Ryan are the worlds best photographers! Not only did I love every picture they took but they also were great to work with. I am not the greatest when it comes to taking pictures and knowing what I might like but they knew exactly what I wanted even when I didn’t. I would highly recommend them for every event.


They were the absolute best! So friendly, so fun and professional. The photos were amazing and they took the time to get some of the more ridiculous shots I requested. BONUS: they were amazing with our nephew. He is autistic. He was our ring-bearer and was having a difficult day, which isn’t unexpected for a day like that. Could not recommend enough.


Hands down, I would recommend Kylene & Ryan to anyone in a heartbeat. We used them for our engagement photos, a boudoir shoot for me, and our wedding photography. Every single time we saw their work, we were blown away. What first drew us to them was their beautiful work–but what also hooked us was how incredibly fun, sweet, professional, and hard-working they are.


Wow, what an incredible experience! It was such a joy working with this team. They had us laughing and enjoying every minute of our special day. And the pictures are STUNNING! They really went above and beyond to create unique and memorable moments we will cherish always.
