LKM & Makayla did an amazing job being present and catching all the important moments for our wedding. She created little scenes we never would have thought about. She is hilarious when you are being awkward and don’t know how to stand or what to do with your hands etc.. She made it so fun and natural. Looking back through there are moments and things she captured that we didn’t even notice she was getting. The whole thing was seamless, she’s a pro with great artistic insights and everything just exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend for any important event. - Patrick, Groom

The morning of the wedding came together seamlessly thanks to Gabi, the day-of coordinator, and all of the amazing staff at Playa Fiesta! We had a blast playing with confetti and watching Bree Rubin, the sister of the bride, work her magic with hair and makeup.

The ceremony space had an incredible view of the ocean where Carly and Pat had their guests toss shells into the ocean. It was such a special moment for their friends and family! Everyone watched in awe at the way Patrick looked at Carly and threw confetti in celebration as they came down the aisle.

After Carly and Pat slipped away for bride and groom portraits they were welcomed back by all of their family and friends in a “ready to party” mode. Of course we had to get all of them squished together hyping up the bride and groom with the ocean in the background.

A shot of tequila for the entrance to cocktail hour followed by an epic dance party. The only thing missing was fireworks….

… but of course they had already thought of that! Thank you Carly and Patrick for including us in your special wedding weekend. It was a blast of a trip that we will always remember! ~ Makayla // LKM


Working with Makayla is a dream! She photographed our engagement, and we knew we had to fly her to our destination wedding after we had our photo shoot and saw the finished images. She’s very professional and direct, ensuring we got the photos and emotion we were looking to capture. At the wedding, she captured everything from the first looks, to the sunset veil shots, all the way down to the dance floor dips and guests having a blast. We can’t imagine anyone else being there with us, and wouldn’t recommend anyone else to capture such special moments. Laura, thank you for supporting Makayla, your quick response times and attention to detail. You two are a dream team! ~ Carly, Bride
