More about kaylen


Hi, I am Kaylen Eliza, but you can call me Kaylen. I am so happy you stopped by. Photo fell into my life; it started as an expression of a time in my life, time spent with friends, my senior year, moments spent celebrating the fleeting feelings of my girlhood; it quickly spiraled into a purpose, a lifelong passion that I love to share with those who value it most.

Going through our gallery, it's clear that Kaylen and Lauren managed to capture our emotions in the big moments, the quiet moments my wife and I shared together, and the little moments we missed. Each picture did one of two things: it teleported us back to a moment that we now know we'll never forget, or it gave us a glimpse of the day from an angle we hadn't seen before: family members dancing next to us, friends laughing at their tables, the look of pure joy on my brother's face when we were pronounced husband and wife. We're forever thankful that we had Kaylen & Lauren to capture those moments for us -- and we still have several hundred photos (and a video!) we haven't even gotten to see yet.

It's also more than worth acknowledging how easy Kaylen and her team are to work with. From our first conversation, it was clear she loves what she does. We planned our wedding long distance from New England and didn't do an engagement shoot with Kaylen (we'd had one done by a local photographer before we even had a wedding date), so we didn't get the chance to meet her until our wedding day. Despite this, Kaylen and her team made everyone in our wedding party feel incredibly comfortable throughout the day, and she made us feel as if we could trust her to capture our day. We couldn't have been more correct. We cannot recommend Kaylen enough :)

Our best wedding planning decision was picking Kaylen and her team for photography and video. She captured every detail so perfectly. Her pictures show our love in such a genuinely beautiful way. From the very first time we FaceTimed to meet and talk options, she felt like a friend - so comfortable yet professional. She traveled to Asheville for our engagement session and Chattanooga for our wedding. Both sessions were so much fun. My husband, like so many men, hates taking pictures but he had just as much fun as I did during our sessions. I think it’s because she’s so easy to talk to - she takes the awkwardness out of not really knowing each other. She even gave me helpful feedback on the colors I was thinking during planning which was very helpful! We received 100s of pictures - it’s almost impossible to have a top 20 because there are so many that I just ADORE. I didn’t think I wanted video going into wedding planning but the more wedding videos Kaylen posted, the more I wanted one of our own. Absolutely no regrets with adding video, she made us feel like we were in the moment again when watching and I will always cherish the memories! I CAN’T WAIT TO USE KAYLEN FOR ALL OF OUR FUTURE MILESTONES!

"Kaylen was a perfect choice for both our wedding and engagement pictures. What attracted me most to her pictures was the way that she captured all the little moments. They are real. They are authentic. And when looking back, they allow for you to remember what you were feeling in those exact moments. I feel that is what we all want in a photographer: to be able to recreate these special moments in our minds by looking at one single image. If you are looking for posed pictures, Kaylen’s work is not for you. But I assure you what you get will be much more. Kaylen was a pleasure to work with and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. I know without a doubt we have found our photographer."
