Karen & Harley | 5.5.12 a celebration of marriage & family

Karen is a very special lady to me! She’s the mother of one of my past brides, Cherie, whose wedding I photographed several years ago. I was so happy when they contacted me for Karen’s upcoming nuptials! I had no idea quite how beautiful of a day they were planning until I got to the house. Karen was floating around in a white bathrobe that said “Bride” and Harley was in the kitchen working on dinner (even though he was supposed to be getting dressed)!

The sun started setting during their poolside ceremony as their closest friends and family watched. It was truly a beautiful wedding. They’re on a one month honeymoon to Italy right now and wanted to share some pictures with family while they were there! Thanks so much for letting me share in your special day.

Ceremony and Reception venue: private residence

This is what greeted guests in the front and directed them around to the back. Love all these details!

Gorgeous florals!

First Look!

I think it’s pretty special that Karen’s dad walked her down the aisle:

Karen’s two gorgeous girls, Danielle and Cherie. I’m not sure what they were laughing at, but I love this shot:


Some truly unique and beautiful details. They totally transformed the backyard!

We tried to get a shot with all 5 grandboys, but the twins were sleeping. We had our hands full with just these three though!

Karen told me she loved candlelight and really wanted to do their ceremony after it got dark! But when the sun finally went down those 300 candles were blazing!

They didn’t have a first dance planned, but I think their impromptu one was even better:

Had the document the mass amounts of candles. My favorite:

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.
