Hey hey!! I'm Khali, a wedding photographer based in Portland, Oregon. Here's a few fun facts about me so we can stop being strangers.
+ I am a taco enthusiast, dog ma, and professional netflix binger. (When you sit at a computer and edit all day, watching Parks and Rec is the way to go)
+ I've had the pleasure of working with over 40 couples on their special day and have shot in beautiful places like Arizona, Oregon, California, Utah and Washington. I am hoping to add some more places to the list!
+ I would consider myself an empath. I really feel others' emotions super strongly, which at times can be overwhelming, but I believe it helps me deliver a really incredible experience to all of my clients. I will always do everything I can to make sure your day is spectacular.
I want to write your love story exactly how it is.
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.

"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!
"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!"
"Khali captured everything beautifully! The moody/classy/intimate. I couldn't have picked a better crew to celebrate my special day"
