You spend a HUGE portion of your wedding day with your photographer - possibly the most out of any other vendor!!
It's super important to me that you feel comfortable and trust me to help bring out all those authentic smiles and laughs.

How do we even begin to describe how truly wonderful a Portland photographer Khali is?! She is personable, timely, professional, INCREDIBLY TALENTED, the list could go on and on. She made us feel so comfortable (something both of us were nervous about since we had never been photographed before), we were afraid it would be awkward, but there was literally never an awkward moment. She was able to capture our love perfectly and having these memories to look at for the rest of our lives is something I will forever cherish.
"From the moment we met Khali, we knew our decision to choose her to photograph our day, was the right one for us."

We love Khali!!! From start to finish, she made us feel comfortable and part of the process, while giving invaluable input into one of the most special days of our lives. She took the time to meet via video multiple times to get a sense of what was most important to us and help us guide the day. The end products are magnitudes greater than we could have even imagined and we are so happy to have such intimate documentation of our day. In short, we cannot say enough good things about Khali. She is kind, easy to get to know, spectacular at what she does, and a true gem to work with. Thank you so much!!!
"Day of, she was our biggest cheerleader, making us feel confident and wonderful in front of the camera while still allowing our true selves to shine."

I had my eye on her when I was scrolling through Instagram one day, and before I was even engaged wanted her as our photographer and I was overjoyed when I was able to book her. She was a joy to work with from our initial email to the end. She was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process, recommending other amazing vendors and helping with our wedding timeline. Even with last-minute changes, she was very accommodating. On the day of our wedding, she fit right in with the bridesmaids during makeup and she was able to make up for lost time after I was a bit late getting ready. And when it came to pictures, she made my husband and I feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera (my husband and I tend to be awkward when getting our photos taken). And the photos themselves? ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I will cherish those photos forever. My husband and I cannot recommend Khali enough!

Khali with KMT Photos has been an absolute dream come true! 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 wedding photos, they are incredible and something we will treasure forever.
"Her style of photography sets her apart from all the rest and she truly captures every moment perfectly"

We were pretty nervous for the engagement shoot as we’d been dating for 11 years with barely any pictures to show for it, we were not super comfortable in front of the camera. Khali talked us through everything and gave us all kinds of prompts so we not only felt comfortable, the pictures looked effortless as well.
"I was overjoyed to find out that not only does she take breathtaking pictures, she’s also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. "

Our Portland wedding planning had a huge wrench thrown in the week before our date. We had to switch ceremony venues very last minute. When I tell you I was panicking so bad… Khali immediately had a zoom call with me to iron out the details and location. She was so accommodating! Khali was by far my most favorite in our wedding team. Left this process with a friend AND a future Portland photographer for any major event! We will treasure these photos for the rest of our life. And so happy we chose her to document the best night of our lives!!
"Khali was there for my million and one texts I sent 24 hours a day lol we were both planning our wedding at the same time so it felt even more special to have someone on our team who understood our vision.

Any couples going through Khali’s blog and portfolio wondering if she’s your 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.
"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"

Khali was INCREDIBLE!!! We booked our couples shoot a few months in advance and she was so communicative leading up to our shoot. She offered us options in terms of locations (we aren't from the Oregon area) and the spot we ultimately chose was gorgeous!! She sent us an outfit guide, and was there to answer any questions we had throughout the process. In terms of the actual shoot it was so much fun!! Khali is such a joy to work with, always cracking jokes and giving us prompts in order to get incredible photos. My boyfriend is not usually not into taking pictures but after our shoot he said "that was so much fun, that's how all photographers should be". Then there's the actual pictures we got, and let me tell you, we were blown away!
"Her photos are incredible and speak for themselves"

Not only are Khali’s photography skills amazing but she is the most genuine and kind human being! She is so passionate about love and captures it beautifully. Khali guides you the whole way through photoshoots and events so you can feel comfortable. Back when my husband was my boyfriend, we had a couples shoot. I remember him being nervous before what was his first photoshoot ever. During and after he kept saying how comfortable she made him feel! Our pictures turned out so wonderful that we had Khali shoot our engagement pictures on the beach in CA and our wedding in AZ! We love all of the pictures Khali has taken of us.
"It has been so fun to not only have a badass photographer but a friend who has watched our lives change and our love evolve! "
