SLOWING DOWN AND CREATING A VISUAL NARRATIVE OF YOUR LOVE

Alberta Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer - Celebrating your love through the creation of natural honest connection, for the big love occasions, life milestones, and to the in-between candid moments. 

CAPTURING THE MOMENTS THAT MEAN THE MOST

Kaila Anderson

Becoming a mom has taught me just how fast time moves. One of my main philosophies in life is to slow down and feel, learn and embrace everything life provides us or throws at us. Any kind of milestone can be life changing, and I'm here to embrace it all.

Kander Photography comes from my first initial and a portion of my last name combined. Coincidentally, it's also the Phonetic spelling of the word Candor. This is the base of my business and how I approach photographing your love; to remain open and honest through expression and candidness. 

candor
{ kan-der } - noun
 
the state or quality of being frank, open, and sincere in speech or expression; candidness.

She took so much care and interest in what we wanted for our day and she was more than willing to go above and beyond. She has such a natural talent.... 

We hired Kaila to do our wedding photos. My husband is very particular in what he likes and we were unsure of what kind of photographer was going to be able to capture our day to the fullest. Kaila was the most knowledgeable, communicative, beautiful person we’ve ever met. From the beginning, we had a Skype interview and we ended up talking for over an hour. She took so much care and interest in what we wanted for our day and she was more than willing to go above and beyond. She has such a natural talent and has also had a lot of training in what she does. On the day of our wedding she was literally almost like our wedding coordinator, she was not afraid to gather the masses and make the moments that we wanted to happen, but at the same time she was also in the shadows and we barely knew she was there. Me and my husband or not ones were usually behind the camera and she was so good at directing us and positioning us to capture the moments that mean the most. We just got some photos back and I cannot stress enough how perfect she captured our day. I cannot recommend enough that you book her immediately for your big day. In my opinion, she is the best PHOTOGRAPHER I’ve ever met. WE LOVE YOU KAILA! - Kelsey Kochar

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

for everything you're wanting to know

If your question is not answered here, please send me an email - let's chat about your wedding or session! 

  • What kind of wedding day packages do you have?
    I offer half day (5 hrs) and full days (8hrs & 10 hrs). I can also offer custom packages depending on what you require!
  • How do I book ?
    hit that "inquire" button either at the top of the menu, or at the bottom of the main page. Do it, I know you want to.
  • When will I get my images?
    I'm usually so freaking excited for you to see your pictures that I'll most likely post a few to social (@kanderphoto on IG) and a mini gallery with sneak peaks. For regular sessions, you'll have your images in a professional online gallery in around 3 weeks. For weddings, you'll get sneak peaks delivered via an online gallery within a few days after your wedding cause holy heck I love reliving the day as much as you do. Your final wedding gallery will be ready within 60 days. If you need images for a celebratory invitation (hello, save the date cards!) or a Christmas card a little sooner, let me know ! I'll try to work a little more speedy to get you an image or two quicker. This has to be discussed with me prior to the shoot though!
  • How many images will I get?
    I can never say exactly! There are a lot of variables to consider and never promise a specific amount. I photograph a lot of images through the duration of your wedding or session, and give you all the gooders. I don't believe that I should be withholding images or charging extra - whether you want the image or decide that you need it, is up to you, when you see your final completed gallery!
  • What do I WEAR?
    well if it isn't your wedding day, cause I'm sure you've had what to wear planned for a while - I'll send you a brief Session Guide that gives you tips & tricks regarding what to wear! But most importantly, dress to be YOU and to be COMFORTABLE. If you are not comfortable in your clothes, it will show in your images.
  • I'm worried I'll be awkward in front of the camera!
    I can bet your bottom dollar that you won't be! It's my job to make sessions fun, and guide you with posing & prompts that feel natural for you. I may get you to do silly things like walk weird, spin, or I'll even crack a dad joke ! Whatever we do, I'll make sure you get photos that you feel good in.
  • Will you photoshop me?
    Nope! I celebrate you as you are, in every day beauty, in open and honest love. Your story is yours, and not for me to change. I will however, edit out anything majorly distracting in the background (goodbye bright yellow yield sign!), and general skin blemishes.
  • Do you shoot with a second photographer?
    Most of my wedding photography experience comes from shooting solo - I love blending into the vulnerable and emotional moments to photograph candidly and quietly. You always have the option to book a second if you'd like though! Having a second photographer is great when logistics are concerning (i'd love to be in two places at once but I have yet to figure that one out!), or when the guest list is over 150; or really anytime you feel you want extra coverage!
  • How much experience do you have in shooting weddings?
    I've been shooting weddings since 2016 after graduating from the Digital Photography Program at Centre for Arts & Technology in the Okanagan in 2015.

If I'm doing something right, I want to keep doing it. 

Reviews help me keep up with needs and they also help others, like you, to make confident decisions about booking me.
