Megan and I are good ‘ol pals. Our story is one of my favorites because I’m the kind of girl that likes it when the meeting of a friend happens in a more untraditional or unique way. First time I met Megan was at my wedding. A invited friend brought Megan as his plus one. A couple of weeks later I found myself at our college lady’s retreat chatting with Megan and my sister-in-law. Many years later, I’m so excited that I can say one of my best friends was at my wedding even though I literally met her that day :)
When I knew Megan was coming I had to give her old barn engagement photography! This girl loves the shabby chic look so ideally I would have come across a disheveled white barn but I found this awesome barn in its place.
I love this girl. She’s perhaps the most indecisive person I know but what I do know is she’s decided she and I will be friends forever, that she adores my daughter, and that she is committed to finding as much adventure in life as humanly possible. Love all of that!
Josh, I met Josh for the first time a few years back but didn’t get my first opportunity for some quality time with the guy until our shoot. My favorite part of our time together was actually the shoot aftermath when we hunted around town for some dinner and I listened to him sweetly chatting with my daughter as he fed her bites of her dinner to ward off the hungry whining. Anyone who loves on my daughter wins my heart immediately.
Besides that, we spent the evening eating and laughing and I couldn’t have been happier to have them in my home! I would keep them here if I could!
Thanks Megan + Josh for allowing me to take your engagement pictures! Excited for you two!
This site is all about my journeys as a professional photographer in Madison. But first and foremost I am Kaia. Kaia means “Earth” in Norwegian and I live up to that by tree hugging, dog loving, and nature walking. My first word was “happy,” I still love to jump in puddles, I strive to live simply and self-sustainably, and my favorite color is yellow. I’m married to a stunningly handsome, ridiculously talented, and intensely loving musician husband. We have a spunky baby girl (see more of her HERE), two furry children (see more of them HERE), and we all live happily ever after in a house on a hill in the land of southern Wisconsin.
I am a photographer bent on capturing the uniqueness in life. I strive to serve my clients lovingly, creating a series of memories they can cherish forever, and making them my forever friends. I shoot honest photography – real people, real colors, and real life.
My primary photographic endeavors are weddings, senior portraits, boudoir, newborns, and family photography (especially in the fall). I offer many gorgeous products ranging from prints, to albums, to wall art products and more, but I particularly love creating my custom designed Coffee Table Albums with my clients.
Do I sound like so much fun and you are so in love with my work? Next, step/mouse over to my “Book Me” tab and let’s get started on some great pictures!
I do the majority of my photography as a Madison wedding photographer, Janesville wedding photographer, Minnesota wedding photographer, Milwaukee wedding photographer, Illinois wedding photographer, and any place that my camera will take me. I am available for travel worldwide as your destination wedding photographer!
