While my photography subjects and experience have definitely evolved since I first picked up that camera in 4th grade, my passion for capturing candid and real moments worth remembering has never wavered.
…still passionate about capturing beautiful love stories.
…proud to have a growing team of kind, compassionate, and talented photographers and videographers.
…honored to offer education opportunities for fellow photographers.
I've had a camera in my hand since the 4th grade. While now it seems like I’ve been capturing moments in time forever, it wasn’t until my early 20’s that I really found my home in capturing love stories like yours.
When I began my teaching career straight out of college, so many friends were getting married. As a guest, I started taking random photos here and there of moments I was touched by, and posting them on MySpace. (Remember MySpace?!) Seemingly out of nowhere, friends and family of those brides began asking if I would capture their wedding, and miraculously KSS Photography spiraled and grew from there.
I'm always looking for pretty ways to style my couple's details! I frequent antique stores and flower shops often and attend local estate sales. I'm always up for a day of antiquing if you know of some good spots!
My puppy is my best friend and got me through the passing of my mother recently. I love him with all my heart. His soul is one of the purest I have ever known. I truly love when my couples incorporate their fur babies into our sessions together!
I also own a company called Pretty Bags. They are stylish camera bags for the whimsical photographer in all of us. We sell out pretty quick and I'm thankful for this success. Click here to order your own!
I'm so honored to be working with Stop The Clot and The National Blood Clot Alliance to bring more awareness to what nearly stole my life away, and help my community understand that those who have suffered from a pulmonary embolism may look great, but often take months to heal from PTSD.
2018 brought my career to a new high! I currently speak about wedding photography for NIKON all over the country and teach at Shutterfest in St. Louis. I also host my own "Darling Workshops" here in NJ and across the US. I frequently mentor and would be honored to help you build the brand of your dreams. Click here to learn more!
I found the love of my life in an old friend. God works in mysterious ways and I am thankful for the path he has chosen for us. Click here to see our love story featured over on Style Me Pretty!
While Kiamarie will almost always be your lead shooter, she'll often be joined by one of these lovely KSS photographers. All KSS photographers are trained, vetted, and mentored by Kiamarie herself, and thoughtfully represent the KSS Photography & Films brand. We're lucky to have them, and know you'll love them too!
