DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS?
HIIIII I'M SO EXCITED YOU ARE HERE!
My name's Khali! It's pronounced like the state, but spelled totally different. Haha. I'm a wedding and elopement photographer based in Portland, Oregon and I am OBSESSED with love stories.
I fell head over heels with documenting love stories 5 years ago and have been taking photos at the first opportunity!
Here's a few fun facts about me so we can get to know each other!!!
I love candid, raw and authentic moments. My photography shouldn't feel posed or unnatural. It should be all about documenting you for who you really are; whatever your love language may be.
I take my job really serious and I take it a step further than just a contractual relationship. I want to know more about you. It's not just about the 6-12 hours we spend together, but the moments before and after. It's about the friendship and connection to me!
I will always do everything I can to make sure your day is spectacular. Transparency is super important to me, so if you have any questions - just ask!
You deserve an unforgettable and meaningful wedding day.
I work extremely hard to make sure my couples visions can come to life on their special day!
This is more to me than just being your photographer. It's about building a meaningful relationship with each other and helping you both throughout the process. Whether you need an opinion on color schemes, or what shoes to wear, vendor recommendations or just somebody to send gifs back and forth with, I'm here for you.

"Khali took my elopement pictures. She was so kind, helpful and enthusiastic. She truly made the day special with her energetic and engaging attitude. The pictures were ready just a week after and they were absolutely beautiful! She truly captured everything I could possibly want for my elopement. ❤️ we are already thinking of the next session we’ll get to have with her!"
"We are so glad we went with Khali as our wedding photographer! She has such a talent for light, color, and capturing the story of the day. Her ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and give you direction is on point... something we were a bit nervous about going in. Our final album completely blew us away... we wholeheartedly recommend her as an important part of your big day!"
"Khali has been an absolute dream come true! Honestly finding a wedding photographer can be such a challenge because there are so many options, especially in the PNW, but we couldn’t be happier that we choose Khali! Her style of photography sets her apart from all the rest and she truly captures every moment perfectly. During our engagement shoot, we felt so comfortable and had an absolute blast, it was in this moment that we knew we made the right choice (even before we got all our photos back). Speaking of our photos, they are incredible and something we will treasure forever. We appreciate how flexible and supportive Khali has been, due to covid we have had to postpone our wedding celebration a few times, we feel so lucky to have such an understanding and honoring vendor like Khali. Everyone do yourself a favor and hire Khali, she will not disappoint!"
"Having Khali there with us on our wedding day was so special and only gets even more meaningful as the months pass and our friendship continues.
Any couples going through Khali’s blog and portfolio wondering if she’s you’re gal — she is. Every word is true and every smile is easy and genuine. Her photos are memories I will cherish forever and the bond she has built with us was completely unexpected but so appreciated."
Khali is incredible to work with in every single way possible! I have modeled for her styled shoots, taken part in her workshops and even had her shoot my wedding! Every photo that she creates is absolute magic. She pays attention to the details, the moments, and the magic of storytelling. Every time I look back at my wedding gallery I find myself in the happiest tears, because her work truly takes me back to the best day of my life. My husband and I were lucky to have her as our photographer!
"We’ve worked with Khali twice now, and I cannot recommend her enough! Her photos speak for themselves. The stories and the love she captures seems so effortless, and the moment you meet her, you see why. She is so easy to work with and has such a positive energy. My fiancé told me after our most recent photo session “I’m really glad I let you talk me into this, that was so fun and they look so good!” Coming from Mr. “I hate having my pictures taken”.. that is the highest compliment!"
"I 100% recommend Khali as a photographer, for any shoot. She makes you feel so special and beautiful/handsome. I especially love when she posts pictures on her Instagram page and brags about how wonderful each of her shoots are. Makes things personal and uplifting."
"Khali made everything so easy - every picture we have from her is amazing and we look forward to cherishing them for years and years! We hope to work with her again in the future."
"She made it an adventure till the very last second. Her creativity and ease of posing kept us from feeling “awkward” and “stiff”. I will forever treasure these photos and can’t wait to work with her again."
Shooting with Khali was truly a dream! After an unexpected turn of events with another photographer we were able to schedule our engagement shoot with Khali and are SO glad we did! She truly is the best hype girl and made the photo shoot FUN. We were able to be ourselves, silly and romantic, intimate and relaxed, Khali truly captured OUR LOVE. The pictures that we received are a treasure that we will cherish for a lifetime. We cannot thank Khali enough!!
"Khali does a wonderful job making you feel comfortable! She gives you prompts to make poses natural and easy. She is all about flow and movement so you never feel like awkward states!"
