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.

They captured our love so perfectly!



I loved working with Abbey and Kira.  They made the whole day so stress-free and perfect!   Every time we got together for a shoot, we just felt natural and like we were hanging out with a friend.  They captured our love so perfectly!  Thanks a million for getting the most beautiful pictures to remember our wedding!

She captured so many special moments that just made me love my reception even more.



As I was looking through my reception pictures, I noticed that my photographer got pictures of all the tiny details that I wanted to remember. She captured so many special moments that just made me love my reception even more. Oh and at the temple while taking pictures- there were so many fun ones that just made me happy, it was just great. Don't be afraid to tell your photographer poses you want or what area you want to have your photo shoots in. They are very willing to do whatever you'd like.  They were helpful in finding places to take photos and wanted me to look around myself so I could be sure.

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!

Wade says that I have a problem..I'm already planning our next trip! I don't think it's so much of a problem as it is an obsession. There's nothing wrong with wanting to see the world right? 😅 And next year I hope to travel with my baby! Anyone out there do any big travels with little ones? I'm gonna be needing some help 😝
The first time I went to France I was like
Paris was picture perfect no matter where we went. Well. Maybe not everywhere. Valerie and I ended up in the ghetto of Paris which we were later told by multiple people how dangerous that was 😬 We definitely had some angels with us there. But other than that experience it was beautiful!
Walking the gardens of Versallies was absolutely magical..and so bloody hot! And when people say to take a whole day there, they aren't kidding. When I go back, I'll be there from opening to closing and it will be in the fall. 🍁
All the art here is 😍😍😍 Can someone tell me why I didn't buy this? 😭
We made it safely to Paris and OMG I am so in love with our flat and Airbnb hosts! Like really 😍 This girl couldn't be more excited 🙌🏻
Currently wondering why cobblestone streets aren't a thing anymore.
Day one of London was a success! We are exhausted and ready for some sleep but so excited for more adventures tomorrow ♥️
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 don't look too pregnant..right? 😂😂 Jk, I'm blowin' up fast! 25 weeks, only 15 to go. 😁
Nothing quite like peonies from Grandma's garden. Doesn't Grandma always make everything better? And peonies?? 🌸
Happy anniversary to my one and only ❤️❤️ Four years of good times, bad and sad times..but many adventures. @mr_wagswag
Already missing this perfect last night sky from our adventure. Also featured in this picture - our hotel, the @hotelgrandpacific
So excited to come home to my love tonight! Having fun with my girls but missing Wade ❤️❤️
It's our last day in Victoria and I'm so sad to leave, but so excited to go home to my husband. It's been such an amazing trip..ah! So many mixed emotions.
Ogden Point Lookout. It's been mostly gardens and city so far, so our venture to the ocean was a nice change of scenery 🐠🐟
Tea at @butchartgarden's was divine.
