The photographer you've been looking for.

Hi, I'm cayla


Rather than bore you with my life story, here are some fun(ish) facts:

  • I'm from the Tidewater area of Virginia. And yes, I very much miss the beach.
  • My first job after college was at NASA. I wasn't a rocket scientist but it was still pretty cool.
  • When I first moved to Nashville, I was the manager of a ballroom dance studio. Sadly, I did not learn how to dance.
  • My degree is in psychology, and I paid off all of my student loans in less than two years.
  • I have a one year old dog named Duncan and it's very likely you'll see a picture (or twelve) of him.
  • One of the dumbest things I've ever done was getting a ticket for doing figure eights in a parking garage when I was nineteen.
  • My go-to coffee order is a vanilla latte with oat milk.

Here for the...

I'm just putting this out there -- my very best friend was a wedding client of mine just a few years ago.  We met for coffee to discuss her engagement session and wedding, and two weeks later we were meeting for lunch and a Target run. Now we talk to each other everyday. 

I'm not saying you have to be my best friend. Just know that I don't take your interest in working with me lightly. Getting to know you and your needs is both a privilege and my top priority. Because I believe in artful and authentic storytelling.  I can't achieve that by just showing up with my fancy camera and sending you on your way. My goal is to serve you with so much more than just pretty photos, but with photos that transport you back to how you felt the moment they were taken.

To create an unmatched storytelling experience, filled with elements of adventure, creativity, and heart.
