“I worked with Kiley for updated branding photos - I recently moved to San Diego and wanted new content for my wedding invitation business. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I couldn't have been happier with the photos! The shoot was a collaborative effort and Kiley was amazing to work with. She really went above and beyond during the shoot and in delivering the photos (so quickly!) I highly recommend her and can't wait to work with her again.”

“Kiley Shai Photography blew me away!! Not only were the pictures flawless & captured my husband and i's personality perfectly, but she created a comfortable environment where we could be ourselves. So many times photographers don't know poses (which I'm not good with, ha) but she had so many great ideas!! I would recommend her to any and everyone!”

“Kiley is the BESTTTTT! I was first drawn to Kiley's work on Instagram. Her editing style is so light, bright, airy, with a dreamy quality to it that really resonated with me. I booked her for a 1 hour session last month so I could get new headshots and photos for my blog and social media!
I was nervous going into the shoot, but Kiley made me feel so at ease and comfortable and suggested all kinds of poses for me to do. Her personality is very bubbly and fun and laid-back. I wasn't sure if we'd be able to squeeze 3 outfits into the hour, but she made it happen! My photos were delivered in an online gallery within a week of the shoot, and she over-delivered in terms of the number of pictures I got back. This was so nice of her and I really appreciated this! :)
I'm so in love with my pictures and can't wait to work with her again on more photo shoots!”
“It was a pleasure working with Kiley. We were photo shooting jewelry line. She arrives few mins before, we discussed how and what we would like to achieve in the photo shoot and went straight to work. We accomplished what we planned for the 2 hours. Pictures were ready 3 days later and I'm more then happy with the results.

"Kiley is such an amazing photographer and friend. I walked away from our shoot with photos I'm proud of AND with a new friend! Kiley truly knows how to make others feel valued and comfortable in their own skin and makes the whole session a breeze! I will definitely be coming back to her for any future photography needs!!!"

“Kiley took my boyfriend and I's anniversary pictures. From the moment I contacted Kiley she was kind, caring, and put her whole heart into making sure she was creating what we wanted. Kiley was incredibly quick with editing our photos as well. Our anniversary was a few days after the shoot, and we took the photos on Sunday at sunset and she had them to us on Monday at 12. TALK ABOUT AMAZING.
Kiley's eye for photography is incredible. She is so effortless while photographing, and the photos she produces are so, so great. She captured our personalities and they truly represent who we are.
She kept us laughing, made us comfortable, and was professional. Kiley is a joy to work with a I would recommend to any and all people looking to have amazing photos taken.”

“I am beyond impressed with the photos Kiley took during our shoot together. She managed to capture my personality in so many of the photos - from me laughing at a joke to the moments when I wasn't posing. I'm no model by any means, so I really appreciated that Kiley was ready and able to give me direction throughout our time together! The photos Kiley provided are ones that I will proudly use for my small business for a long time. If you're thinking about hiring Kiley as your photographer, do not hesitate!
She's incredibly talented and worth every penny.”

“Kiley was AMAZING from start to finish!! I got in touch with her through a mutual friend to help capture my proposal in San Diego. We spoke multiple times prior to the "main event" and she went above and beyond by meeting me beforehand to find the perfect spot and even setup a blanket with champagne, flowers and a picnic basket to make it picture perfect.
Our pictures came out absolutely incredible and Kiley was able to capture the perfect moment as well as a photo shoot afterwards that we will be using for our engagement photos. People still don't believe the photos aren't from a magazine :).
100% highly recommend.”

“I have worked with Kiley for over a year and shot together many many times. I can’t say enough about how highly I recommend Kiley and her beautiful work! I have referred many families to her and every time I see the photos, I am amazed with how she captures the moment and her style is bright and happy! She also get the pictures back right away and I am ALWAYS impressed!!! She is fantastic and you will be very happy with your photos!”

We've worked with a number of photographers over the past few years and Kiley would top our list every time!
She is incredibly creative and a shoot w/ her feels SO natural and comfortable, she truly captures the real emotion and authenticity of the experience! We are so lucky to have found her and can't wait to book her again!
Kiley has absolutely BLOWN ME AWAY with her photography! We had never met in person prior to our shoot, but she made me feel so comfortable right away. She easily makes you laugh and feel so confident in front of the camera.
I needed photos for the launch of my new website and business as a yoga teacher and self-love coach, and though Kiley had never done a shoot with a yogi, she did such an amazing job capturing the different yoga poses and all the little details. What I also appreciated about Kiley is that she is quick to respond, edit, and send photos, which was so helpful given that I needed photos right away. The process is so smooth with her!
On top of all of this, though this was a photoshoot for me, she also got my boyfriend (who came along for support) in some of the shots, which was incredibly thoughtful. It means so much to have some special photos of us! Overall, I'm extremely happy with all of my photos and I HIGHLY recommend Kiley to anyone who is looking for a photographer.
