Hello Friends!

I know it’s been awhile since my last post. Things are in full swing over here at KHP! This summer is chock full of lots of fun weddings I hope to share with you soon. Unfortunately the blog occasionally takes a back seat while I hurry to deliver the final product to my clients. Sometimes I get a chance to blog a wedding, and sometimes there just isn’t enough hours in the day. But until I get another chance, here is a little sneak peek at Lauren + Ackerly’s engagement session. 

Hope to see you soon!

Small and intimate wedding celebrations are always so sweet and special, such was the case with Shawn and Heidi’s spring wedding at The Corson Building.  The two lovebirds invited just a few of their closest friends and family and celebrated their union with great food and lots of laughter.

Below are just a very few of my favorites.  I’m signing out to enjoy my birthday weekend!

(check out Heidi in that dress!  gorgeous!)


  • saleina epperson - SOOoooo pretty, Kim. I love looking at your stuff… it’s pure eye candy!

Michael and Danielle had a romantic ceremony in a historic church that overlooked the sea.  They spent the rest of the day celebrating with friends and family, drank sangria at sunset, and danced into the evening.   Yep, it was pretty much a perfect day.

Here are just a few of my favorites…

Wedding: St. James by the Sea, La Jolla, CA.

Reception: La Estancia Hotel & Spa, La Jolla, CA.

Coordinator/Decorator/Flowers: Kristen Maurice-Francine Ribeau Events

  • Della - Gorgeous! Love that California light!

  • Johanna - I had to come back AGAIN and look at the beautiful photos!

  • Winnie Forbes - What a stunning wedding and gorgeous couple! Love the light, Love the colors.

  • Danielle and Michael - […] is a wedding that I had the privilege to shoot with Kim Hayes.  She is an incredibly amazing photographer and I felt so fortunate to be able to learn from her […]

Oh hello, Venice.  What I wouldn’t do to be magically transported back to you right now.  I’d sit in your St. Marks Square, enjoy some pizza and beer, and take in the city- in all it’s rotted, beautiful decay.  I really don’t think there is another place like you in the world.  You are magical and confusing, crowded and smelly, lovely and mysterious, and I adored every second of my time spent with you.

A few selected images are available in my Fine Art Shop.  Go here to check them out: BUY PRINTS  (if there is a particular image you want- shoot me an email and I’ll make it available in the print shop)

  • Jess - Absolutely gorgeous, Kim!!

I’m so excited to share these beautiful new albums that are now available to my past and present clients!   I’m super picky when it comes to choosing a new product to offer, so picky that it’s taken me nearly 6 years to settle on this particular vendor. 

The new albums are hand bound, wrapped in a luxurious silk cover, blind embossed with your names, and printed on an archival fine art paper. I’ve wanted to offer a more traditional fabric covered album for years now, as opposed to the modern photo covered albums that I still carry, and I think these albums are perfect. There are a variety of color choices for the silk cover, I just thought the Seafoam Green was perfect for Colleen and Mike’s Mexico wedding.  

I just LOVE these new albums…take a look!
