"I couldn't be happier with our decision to ask Kayla to photograph our wedding. Beginning with our engagement session, Kayla was excited and full of fresh ideas. I have to note that she captured both my step son AND my dog looking and smiling-- if you know my family, you know how tricky this can be. She demonstrated a level of patience and professionalism throughout the entire experience. In the weeks leading up to our wedding day, Kayla was in frequent contact and expressed anticipation of our day to come. Both she and her partner arrived to our venue ready to go. Each shot I specifically requested was captured. Kayla exceeded all expectations and her talent is evident in each image. We are so thankful!!"
"Kayla and Derik, you are an absolute dream. The most amazing individuals inside and out. As soon as we were engaged we JUMPED to make sure we could have them for our special day. From start to finish everything was taken care of. You both helped us capture our day in the most perfect way. On our wedding day Kayla and Derik were there for us as not only photographers but friends who genuinely cared. The comforting presence of them both had us at such an ease and it made it so much easier for us to have fun with them and really open up and smile for the camera. From the attention to detail, creativity, professionalism and everything in between. You both were so fantastic to work with and we can’t ever thank you enough. Our family and friends are constantly complimenting how beautiful our photos are and we have you to thank for that. Looking at our photos now we can go right back to that very second. You captured every single emotion so flawlessly. Seriously, look NO further. These two are your photographers. I wish for everyone to have the experience we had. A dream come true and a complete blessing."

"Kayla and Derik were the perfect team! We had zero idea what to do in front of the camera and they made us feel comfortable, confident, and most of all had us laughing and being ourselves. Kayla took the time to meet us before we officially booked where we shared our vision and ideas - we could tell right away she was the one to photograph our wedding. She helped with the timeline of our day and ensured it ran smoothly! Do the engagement session!! It not only made us more comfortable, but it allowed Kayla and Derik to get to know us, too. The day of the wedding was one of the hottest days of the year, but these two didn’t skip a beat. They also advocated for us, they knew what we wanted and what we didn’t and stuck to that! Honestly, these two felt more like our guests than our vendors! If something was needed they were quick to offer to help and they kept our day on track with quick transitions and organization. We had sneak peeks that night and she had a quick turn around time with getting the entire day back to us! Every time we asked a question from first point of contact to even today! We will cherish these pictures forever and they will take us back to the most perfect day every time we look through them! If you are looking for a photographer for anything, not necessarily even a wedding, she’s your girl!"

“Where to start! Since the day I booked Kayla’s services she started checking in with me to see how wedding planning was going. She was so kind and reassuring. It really helped put my mind at ease. By the time I met her on my wedding day I felt like she was a friend I’ve had for years. Her and her husband made us feel so comfortable and completely ourselves. They made us laugh and truly captured who we are as a couple. They held my flowers and bustled my dress. They were like inviting friends that just happened to know how to take pictures too. The pictures they took were absolutely beautiful. There’s not a doubt in my mind that I’ll ask the Claars to capture many more of our lifetime milestones."

"Kayla Lynn Photos was truly one of the best decisions I made while planning my wedding (aside from choosing the groom right?!). Choosing my wedding photographer was one of those decisions that I left hanging over my head for months. However—after finding Kayla’s work and talking with her I immediately knew she would be the perfect fit. Kayla and Derik were the most genuine, sincere, and understanding people to work with before, during, and after our wedding. They made the day of schedule work and split up to make sure moments before the ceremony were captured for both me and my husband. They totally connected with my husband and me on a personal level and were able to make us feel so comfortable during every shot. Even while in the midst of her own wedding, she was able to work on our photos and deliver them to us in no time! We are so thankful to have met and worked with her and her husband. We could not be happier with all of the special moments that we have to look back on and cherish forever!! Kayla will always be our go to photographer!!!"

“Kayla is the most personable professional photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with!! Her work is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and truly speaks for itself. She can literally make any image you have in your mind a reality. I’ve hired her for every single photoshoot after our engagement session. My husband & I were hooked! We immediately booked her for our wedding and then family photos a year later. We always have a blast on every shoot! Kayla is respectful, professional, fun, and so passionate about her profession! I could not imagine allowing anyone else to capture some of the most precious moments of my life so far. No one even comes close in my eyes! Kayla is the best!”

"Kayla Lynn is hands down the best photographer in Western, PA. She came to us as a referral and the moment I met her, she blew me away. She is extremely talented and probably one of the friendliest people I've ever met. We used her for maternity photos, engagement photos, and our wedding. She really exceeded every expectation and all of her photos come out stunning. I appreciate the time she puts in to editing and I really feel she always goes above and beyond. I highly recommend her!"

"Kayla was the photographer of our small, intimate wedding and I cannot stop raving about the awesome experience we had with her! From the initial contact, to the conclusion of the actual wedding, she was extremely professional, prompt (which means a lot to me!), flexible, and genuine. She took the time to meet with us beforehand to hear what our vision was for our wedding day, and she really brought it to life! My husband and I ended up making last minute changes regarding the location and reception, but Kayla was more than happy to brainstorm ideas with us to come up with the perfect pictures at these new locations. She fit right in with our family and friends and really improved the overall experience for us. Her easy going personality also helped ease my anxious bride mind, which was great for me! We ended up with a disc of a crazy amount of beautiful pictures that truly reflect the intimacy of our special day. Kayla was worth every single penny and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone, for any event!"
