One of the best ways to get a feel for me, my style, and my business is to hear it straight from others who have worked with me...
Here are a few of my past brides and their thoughts about our work together.

Everything turned out perfectly and I love our pictures so much and I know they will last forever.



Working with Kira was such a blessing. I didn't have to worry about a thing and I could trust Kira knowing that she had everything under control and that everything would turn out great. There honestly was not one picture that we did not love and its been weeks since our wedding and a day has not gone by where I haven't looked at our engagement pictures and bridal pictures. I have a bunch of our favorite pictures all over our home and we get so many compliments on how nice the pictures turned out. I am so glad I made the decision to go with AK Studio & Design because everything turned out perfectly and I love our pictures so much and I know they will last forever. They did such a great job on capturing our special day and making those memories last in such great photographs.

Kira was my impromptu wedding planner for my wedding, and I couldn't have made it through in one piece without her!



Kira was my saving grace!!! Not only did she capture the best day of my life perfectly, she was my right hand man throughout my entire wedding experience. She always came prepared, from helping me beforehand to coordinate outfits, to choosing the best settings for pictures, to even packing extra water bottles and fruit snacks when we were famished taking pictures on the big day. She knows Utah and it's changing seasons, and took us to the most breathtaking venues. She knew how to pose us as a couple (which was a huge relief for me because I had NO idea what I was doing) and we just listened and smiled, and our pictures turned out beautiful. What impressed my husband the most was the way Kira knew how to control a crowd. She was vocal and my experience with our large families went effortlessly. During my reception, she kept me on schedule, and kept me hydrated while I was caught up talking to my guests. She honestly was my impromptu wedding planner for the night, and I couldn't have made it through in one piece without her!

Kira made such a busy and stressful day go by seamlessly & flawlessly, and was able to capture moments I could never go back and describe in words.



Choosing to work AK Studio & Design will be a choice you will never regret. Kira made such a busy and stressful day go by seamlessly & flawlessly, and was able to capture moments I could never go back and describe in words. I'm grateful to have those memories captured in a way that maintains the magic of that amazing day. She is truly a gifted photographer that is able to capture not only the physical beauty but also the complex emotion of the day with each shot she takes. She is super easy to work with and wanted to capture my vision of each event. I couldn't be happier with her work and the photos we have received!!

Kira knows exactly how to make me relax so she can capture natural, joyful moments



One of the biggest reasons we chose to get sealed at the Draper temple was because the tall stained glass windows on the facade are incredible. Kira knew that I wanted them to be the focus of the photos, and she did a phenomenal job incorporating them in creative ways. One thing I loved about working with Kira is that she made my husband and I feel comfortable. I am a naturally shy person, especially in front of a camera. And she knows exactly how to make me relax so she can capture natural, joyful moments; as opposed to posed and stiff ones. Another thing I love about her work is it has a timeless feeling. I don’t see them ever going out of style or feeling out-dated! Overall, I love her style and her professional and fun approach!

Kira makes you feel comfortable and helps you have a good time while posing for pictures.



Working with Kira was honestly such a fun experience for Danny and I. She makes you feel comfortable and helps you have a good time while posing for pictures. She takes charge and directs you and helps find a comfortable position to pose for each picture. She’s kind and lighthearted and I really just adore the session we did. It turned out beautifully. She took us on a little adventure while we found the perfect place to shoot, and the entire experience was so enjoyable!

Kira has an incredible eye for capturing truly wonderful pictures!



Kira is an absolute gem of a photographer to work with. First off, she has an incredible eye for capturing truly wonderful pictures. She pays close attention to colors, lighting, poses of subjects, backgrounds, foregrounds, and creates stunning overall compositions. On top of all of those skills, she has an infectious fun personality that make for an effortlessly comfortable and enjoyable session. She can bring out the genuine smiles, laughs, and tender moments of those being photographed with such ease due to her own level of enthusiasm. Her ability to keep things fun and exciting elevate her photography even more because that contagious excitement shows through in the pictures taken. Kira was also a wonderful person to have amidst all the many happenings at a wedding and she kept the picture taking moments moving, smooth and pleasant for all those involved. I absolutely cherish and treasure the photography and moments that she captured on such a special day. I can't wait for another opportunity to work with her because her photography is top notch and it is an absolute treat to be around her.

I love our pictures because I feel beautiful and can see my personality in every shot.



We are so glad we chose Kira to do our bridal pictures. Not only was she professional, but totally fun to work with. We're both a little camera-shy, but she made our shoot feel natural and comfortable. I love our pictures because I feel beautiful and can see my personality in every shot. Everyone always asks who took our beautiful pictures, we refer all of our engaged friends to Kira!

Just took these girls bridals last night in a huge orchard last night. And oh, em, gee. I still have butterflies just thinking about it.
Forever in love with blush pink and sun flares 👛☀️
Lauren and Danny. Danny and Lauren. You are both such beautiful people and I miss you both. I hope all is well in Wisconsin!
I've been planning out my London trip these past couple days and I can't wait! When I sit down to plan I physically get a stomachache because I am so excited. Is that normal? 😅
I am in love with these white rose bushes. They have such a delicate elegance to them and they remind me of snow. Not old icy snow in winter, but the pretty soft snow that surprises you in the morning but melts throughout the day. You know what else reminds me of snow? The SNOW that surprised me this APRIL morning. I'm not bitter.
I'm currently stuck in the WORST TRAFFIC EVER so naturally it's a great time to shine some light on these two pretty people. Think happy thoughts.. think happy thoughts.. 💆🏼
Take some time to do a little dancing today. It's Friday! And Friday calls for dancing.
Another day,another bouquet 💐 Still in love with this fabulous bouquet from @thecurlywillow_floral. Is it just so blatantly obvious that my favorite color is blush? 🙈

I am in love with everything about these two - they are so quirky and perfect together. Plus, I'm dying over how much I love Kendall's hair. Ariel mermaid hair for sure ❤
This morning I was driving to a session around 6 AM and as I was looking at the cars on the road I thought about how most of them are probably driving to work. My first thought was
I cannot believe that I am going to be back in London in less than five months! I never thought that I would be back again so soon. Have you ever been to London? What do I need to see or do while I'm there? And more importantly – what foods do I need to try?
While I adore floral crowns, there are occasions that that is not always the look you are going for. Try a floral hair clip instead! So elegant and you still get that floral look. @stoofyworso rocks this look ❤ Hair and makeup by @simplymindyk and the hair clip by @thecurlywillow_floral
Happy National Puppy day! Meet Marley - Karly and Miles precious puppy ❤🐶
This is a little shout out to Bronte and Mark - two of my most favorite people. And beautiful to boot! This photo was a finalist in the @shootandshare contest where over 300,000 photos were submitted! Bronte and Mark did all the hard work, I just clicked away as they loved on each other ❤😘😍
You guys - I get to see Beauty and the Beast tomorrow and I CANNOT WAIT. Have you seen it yet? Is it as good as everyone says it is?
Happy first day of S P R I N G! 🌿🌻🌸 I can't believe it's finally here ❤ To celebrate I may even work in the yard. Do you have any first day of spring traditions?
