Hey! My name is Kiyah and I'm the destination and Atlanta wedding photographer behind Kiyah C Photography. I'm a daydreamer, a dessert lover, and a storyteller. I yearn to tell memorable, emotional, and joy-filled stories of love and adventure through photographs.
After years of documenting my everyday life with my first digital camera, I photographed my first Atlanta wedding at The Swan Coach House in 2014. That day, I fell in love! My couple chose and trusted me to capture one of the most beautiful and precious days of their life. My photography style is photojournalistic and emotional. I capture a wedding day as it unfolds, documenting all of the big and small details culminated into one breathtaking story of the wedding day.
One of my favorite wedding days was Brittany & Phillip's December wedding at Deercreek Country Club in Jacksonville, Florida. There was no shortage of tears, laughter, and that good Florida sunshine, all of which I love. Brittany shared a first look with her dad and everyone in the room was brought to tears as he couldn't stop crying and hugging his daughter. More tears came from Phillip as he watched Brittany walked down the aisle toward him.
After their beautiful ceremony, Brittany and Phillip were able to soak in all of their "just married" feels as we walked around the venue for their portraits. Their guests enjoyed a brunch reception (my favorite!) and a whole lot of dancing before sending the couple off.
Witnessing and photographing so many beautifully genuine emotions throughout this wedding day is what truly made it one of my favorites. Brittany and Phillip welcomed me as more than just another wedding day vendor, but as a friend. And that made my job feel less like work and more like bliss.
As an Atlanta wedding photographer, my favorite weddings to photograph are simple, colorful, unique, and emotional. They are held outdoors or in aesthetically pleasing indoor venues. They are full of elements that the couple handpicks and that express who they are, not just what's trendy or popular. My favorite couples are spontaneous, creative, and laid-back. They value scheduling their wedding day around natural sunlight because they fully trust me as an artist, photographer, and friend. I also have an insane sweet tooth, so yummy desserts at the reception are a plus.
I also treasure the opportunity to capture intimate weddings and elopements because there is so much beauty in a small wedding day! When a couple and just a handful of their loved ones gather to celebrate, I feel especially honored to be their photographer.
Even though I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer, I've had the opportunity to photograph weddings throughout the US. In 2016, I photographed couples in Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington state. In 2017, I'll be traveling to California, Rhode Island, and North Carolina to tell even more love stories. Wherever my couple is getting married, I will be there to laugh, cry, and celebrate with them. No destination is too far!
I look forward to telling your love story!
