Behind the Lens

We're high school sweethearts & proud pet parents with a passion for storytelling. Scroll down to hear our story before we tell yours!

When I was little, my dad would read to me every night, bringing a perfect blend of humor and vivid character portrayals to each story. He balanced the whimsical with the profound, bringing to life the characters from my books. His ability to find harmony in the stories, giving equal weight to every aspect of the narrative, left a lasting impression on me. I remember the smallest details of those tales, even two decades later, thanks to his skillful balance in storytelling.

This early lesson in balance has shaped my approach to life and art. Whether exploring different art forms or delving into photography, I've always sought to find that perfect balance in my creations. It's about blending fun with seriousness, reality with imagination. My photography journey began in earnest in 2016 at a creative arts school. It was there that Daniel and I, united by our passion for photography, founded KD Captures.

Fluent in sarcasm, lovers of nature, travel, and mixed drinks, and fans of vibrance and light.

Our philosophy in wedding photography is centered around balance. We understand that your love story is a unique mix of moments, emotions, and experiences. In capturing your wedding, we aim to balance the big, exciting moments and the quiet, personal ones. Getting to know you and your partner helps us make your wedding photos just right – a mix of fun and meaningful moments that tell your story.

Every photo we take is about showing the balance in your story – the laughs and the quiet times, the big scenes, and the little details. We want your wedding album to be a mix of everything that makes your relationship unique, captured in a way that's real and beautiful.

This approach comes to life through the connections we build with our couples. By understanding the unique blend that makes your relationship special, we ensure that your wedding gallery is not just a collection of photos, but a balanced and beautiful narrative of your love.
