Full Service


Based in Southern California with a huge love to travel!

my promise to you

As a photographer, I choose to offer only a full service experience to every couple who walks through my doors. To me that means providing you with an incredible experience, helping your plan for the most beautiful photos, capturing your unique love story & every special moment in between, and then delivering your beautiful custom printed heirlooms to you so you can display all of your favorite memories in your home and enjoy them for years to come!

Your memories MATTER and I'm here to help you make sure that they'll ALWAYS be remembered!

Kayla Illies Photography | Southern California and Destination Wedding Photographer

Hey Friend! I'm Kayla!

I am the creator, dreamer, traveler, story teller, and hopeless romantic behind KIP!

My biggest passion is serving my beautiful couples, photographing their love for one another, and bringing them joy every day through their gorgeous printed heirlooms!

When I'm not busy photographing my sweet couples you can often find me off on a fun adventure with my husband, playing with our two pups, or enjoying a craft beer (or two!) with friends at a local brewery!
