Tell us about Kéra Photography + how long you’ve been in business.
Kéra: My journey as a photographer started 11 years ago when I was introduced to the world of film. Most days I would dream about the smell of developer and red light and wished that was all that I could do. My love for editorial photography began when I worked for the Naples Daily News where I was formally trained as a photojournalist and my love for telling the untouched story began.
My first introduction into wedding photography was in 2011 where I worked for a high-end wedding photographer in Naples. I absolutely adored the couples we got to work with and began to find my passion for visually telling every lover’s story. In 2013, I moved to St Petersburg, FL where I built my business from the ground up. Since then, I have met amazing people with love stories only they could have written, stellar vendors, and a community I could never take for granted. The summer of 2019 marks another big moment for me as I relocate my home base to Nashville, TN to build a life and a love only miles from the great smoky mountains. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been in business now for a full 7 years. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun!
How did you get started in weddings?
Kéra: My first introduction into wedding photography was in 2011 where I worked for a high-end wedding photographer in Naples. I was her second photographer as well as her in house editor. I learned all the ins and outs of what it meant to be a business woman, and also what it meant to work with grit and passion. I absolutely adored the couples we got to work with and began to find my passion for visually telling every lover’s story.
What’s the philosophy behind Kéra Photography?
Kéra: Wedding photography should be approached with a bit of curiosity to tell the story of the love, and I can do this by connecting on a personal level with my clients. I aim to tell their love story through images of authentic, hopelessly romantic love. The goal is to deliver a cohesive, intentional experience to every client, in order to build a lasting relationship. I love connecting with clients on a personal level, to ensure that every person in the photographs feels like they can be 100% themselves. The result is photos that are creative, but also stay in line with a timeless approach to photography. While I love the timeless aspect of my photography, I never want photos to feel boring – the Kéra Photography experience results in photographs that feel alive.

What attracts couples to Kéra Photography?
Kéra: I love working with people who live with big hearts – they love exploring new things in their life, and find joy when they help others. My clients understand the value of photography – that these are memories captured, and they will become heirlooms for their future. My ideal client isn’t fussy – they know how to have a good time, and are passionate about: travel, trying new things, and being in love with each other. A connection to nature is important to them, and they appreciate my love of the outdoors, and how I can create a sense of place with my images. Ideal clients appreciate my muted but vibrantly colorful aesthetic, and absolutely love my style and perspective. They trust me to capture their wedding day, and understand that I am a photographer for their lives.
What is the most innovative new product, service, style or other aspect of your industry that brides and grooms might appreciate?
Kéra: #CouplesForACause is a part of my brand that leverages giving back in a way that also gives back to the client. This gives the couple a chance to break from wedding planning, to be intentional in their community, and also gives them a chance to save money in the long run. For a long time I craved giving back, but giving money to an organization felt disconnected and impersonal. In this way, we can connect to our community and really be a part of it.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about Kéra Photography?
Kéra: I find joy being able to deliver a gallery to a client that makes them pause and to find gratitude in what the day really meant for them. Wedding days go by so fast, so being able to pause the chaotic moments that allow them to relive these memories — there are no words. It’s very special to me!
