I want your experience with me to be more than a booking confirmation!! I want to cheer you on throughout your entire wedding planning journey. Send me pics of your dress or that super amazing cake-topper of your pets! I WANNA SEE!
I use the knowledge that I have gained over the years as a wedding photographer to help make planning your special day that much easier. I provide all of my wedding couples with a special magazine that has tips on timeline planning, vendor recommendations, exit ideas, and so much more!
Before an engagement session or just because session, I send out a detailed outfit guide and questionnaire so I can get to know you better.
Photography is one of your top priorities for your wedding day, and you want to make sure you hire somebody who's experienced and willing to provide you with a service worth the investment.
You love colorful, bold photo edits!
You've looked at my style and you vibe with it!
You aren't stressed about shot lists and specific photos you've seen on Pinterest, Tiktok, etc. All you want are beautiful photos that will commemorate your wedding day and tell YOUR story.
You've taken the time to review my work, and you trust me to document your big day in a way that's candid and authentic.
You freaking love chips and salsa, and margaritas are your love language.

An associate photographer is an experienced photographer on my team who I have personally trained to give the KMT photos experience to my couples. After photographing your wedding, they will give me the photos, and I will edit them and deliver them to you! All of the prep work prior to your wedding and the work after is still handled by me!
You’ll get all your beautifully edited images in an online gallery called Pic-Time. You can order prints directly through your gallery, or you can download the images yourself and have them printed somewhere else!
This gallery also allows you to download smaller, web-size images for sharing on social media.
I hear this SO MUCH and I promise you - not the case!! You will never have to wonder “what do I do with my hands?” or “how do we look cute?” I will guide you through every step of the shoot and direct you in ways that allow you to let loose, have fun, and BE YOURSELVES! My approach to directing couples is to give you actions & things to DO that keep you moving, and having so much fun you'll forget you're taking pics.
Second shooters are super helpful with larger weddings where my second shooter can be hanging out with one group getting ready, while I’m hanging out with the other getting ready! It gives you multiple different angles - like for your first look, or during the ceremony, or during the reception when I’m focused on you two & my second shooter is focused on all the guests!
Engagement photos are a great way for us to get some practice in for wedding photos and just have a fun time getting more beautiful images to decorate your home and put on your save the dates!
If you want to add on an engagement session, I give a heavy discount to my wedding clients!
Absolutely! I am super flexible to whatever payment plan works best for you. I require 1/3 due upfront to secure your date (this fee is nonrefundable) and the other two payments are split up for the remaining time before your wedding.
If you'd prefer to split the other 2/3's into more payments, I am okay with this as long as it's paid in full 14 days before the wedding!
Every wedding and event is different, so my packages sometimes can vary in how many images are delivered. However, I promise to include as many images as I can that turn out great - making sure to avoid duplicates, blurry photos, eyes closed, etc. I average 75 images/hr but I have been known for overdelivering haha

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."
bri + alex
From engagement pictures to the wedding, everything she helped with and made our day perfect. She was so accommodating to our needs and wants. All the behind-the-scenes videos she took, and I got, I couldn't love more. I obsessively look at them and all the amazing pictures she took. We got our previews within 24 hours and can't wait to see the full gallery. Love love love her and couldn't be happier with our decision. The best hype girl and can make it look so natural. My husband and I aren't PDA people, but our pictures you would never guess that. Don't hesitate to book, do it!!!
"There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Khali is. "
ben + nolan
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"
tashauna + isaac
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. "
Jess + mike
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.
tori + joe
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"
hannah + moises
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"
taylor + ryan
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! "
