I cannot say enough about how great our experience with Kiley was. She shot our elopement in Big Bend. I knew from the beginning that I wanted her to be the one documenting our special day. Kiley has a great eye and you can see her appreciation for art in the photos. If you love nature she will showcase it for you. I knew our gallery would come out fantastic but I honestly couldn’t believe how much of it spoke to the beautiful day we had.
Kiley- Boris and I are so appreciative of saving the day. We want you to be our photographer for life.


Allie + Pat

Kiley is incredible. She has such an eye for the perfect vista, slant of sunrise lighting, and spontaneous moment. We loved working with her for our elopement—she put us immediately at ease and went out of her way to make the experience seamless and joyful. 10/10 would recommend!


Veronica N.

10/10 recommend getting photographed by Kiley! Talented and has a creative eye, yes. But is also very kind and makes you feel comfortable throughout your entire session. She did such a wonderful job at capturing us but also my favorite, West Texas desert landscape which is exactly what I was wanting! It was our first time working with her but will not be our last.


Kareece + Tim

Working with Kiley has been an incredible experience. We booked her for our engagement shoot in Marfa and it could not have been a more fun or easy process. She worked with us to pick the best location (when the elements seemed to be working against us) and made it so fun during the shoot! The photos we received are beyond our expectations and we cannot recommend working with her enough!! Thank you, Kiley!
