Brooklyn Wedding Photographer

Kala made us both feel so comfortable and calm during our engagement shoot. Not to mention the pictures turned out UNBELIEVABLE. We were so in love with her work. She also made a personal investment in our story and got our pictures back to us so quickly; a piece that I personally appreciated so much. I am so glad we found her and I can’t wait to see what she does for our wedding.

My husband and I could not possibly rave enough about Kala! She did an UNBELIEVABLE job capturing our last-minute backyard wedding. We and our families loved Kala's professionalism, wonderful energy, and true passion to ensure that her clients are happy. We would highly recommend Kala to anyone looking for a photographer. Kala has not only become a go-to recommended photographer, but also a friend!

- Phoebe & Jon

Professional, poised, and graced with a personality-plus, Kala was an excellent choice for my daughter’s senior portraits! Kala’s commitment to her clients shines through in all that she does. From advice about the perfect location to making an immediate connection with my daughter, our golden-hour photo shoot was outstanding in every way. Even more than taking my daughter’s photos, Kala helped us create a cherished memory! Thank you, Kala.

Kala is an amazing photographer and a wonderful person to work with. She is upbeat, fun, and happy to do anything to make your pictures what you want them to be. She is very talented and makes the experience very casual and fun. Our engagement photos are more beautiful that we could have ever imaged and she delivered the entire album within a few weeks. We are very excited to have her take photos at our wedding. Kala is very punctual with responses and scheduling dates, upfront and organized about her services, and willing to customize anything to fit your needs. 10/10 recommend for any photography needs and I would 100% use her for anything else I need in the future.

- Nicole & Dan

Kala has been photographing our growing family for years now and she never ceases to amaze us! She is fantastic with young kids and always manages to capture the perfect shot. Photographing an entire family isn’t an easy task but she is always prepared with props, bubbles and fun new locations for us to visit! Her photos always capture the magic of our kids individual personalities. We absolutely love working with her!

- Linda & Steven

Kala's photographs are always outstanding...great composition and capturing of beautiful light. I really appreciated how she made my teenage daughter feel comfortable the whole time!

- Amy

Kala is absolutely amazing at making even the most awkward couple feel comfortable!! My husband and I have a tough time posing for pictures, but she brought out the best in us. She strives to capture beautiful candid moments and doesn't worry so much about the perfect pose and I think that is what makes her work spectacular. She is down to earth, and so much fun! We are grateful we found her to capture our special day!

Rochester Wedding

I had no idea what to look for when shopping for a photographer. I found Kala Wilkins and immediately I knew she would be the perfect photographer for us. After one meeting I knew we were in great hands! My husband and I aren’t exactly comfortable in front of the camera. Kala made both the engagement session and our wedding so fun and easy! Not only does she capture outstanding photos she puts you at such ease. Our wedding party and family all said how wonderful she was to work with throughout the big day and her photos are absolutely stunning! She even had a sneak peek sent to me that same night. If you’re in the market for a photographer for any occasion look no further! We would use Kala again in a heartbeat!
