Hi, I’m Kyra.
It means so much to me that you’ve stopped by. I’d love to meet up to chat more about your wedding day, but in the meantime, here is a bit about me:
I’m American but I have lived abroad most of my life. The first time I moved was when I was five, to Senegal in West Africa. Down the line, my high school graduation was at the foot of the Giza pyramids. Seemed pretty normal at the time, but now I think – hey, that’s cool!
My English husband and I met onstage, acting in a play in Singapore (we played husband and wife). We have a son Jack Anthony and a daughter Phoebe Delilah, and they fill my heart to the brim.
I have a BA in Theatre and Art and a Masters from Southern Oregon University. Before falling in love with my camera I was a secondary school drama teacher, first in Portland, Oregon, then in Nicaragua, and then Singapore.
My friends and family are spread across the globe, but through photography, I have found a way to keep everyone I love with me at all times.
I have lived a diverse life but my interests remain simple; I’m into tea & coffee, health food, hot weather, ceramic mugs, home décor, home movies, markets, the California coast, wind chimes, red wine, scarves, flip flops, and getting absorbed in a TV series with my main squeeze. I have a lust for travel and experiencing new places that is only surpassed by my love for being at home. And at the moment, my home is Melbourne.
I have been told I’m very calming.
You are in love. Your heart is bursting and the party you are planning is going to be so good and so you. Everyone you care about most will be there because somehow they each have played a part in your love story. The whole affair will be more fun than formal and more offbeat than traditional. Nothing posed--simply candids will do the trick because as your day naturally unfolds, so will your narrative.
During your wedding day, I will steal you both away for a bit to find some cool spots and pretty light to photograph you in. I strive to create a space for my couples where you are comfortable to be yourselves and get lost in each other, so the images I capture are full of all the emotion of a couple in love, without thinking about the awkward third wheel behind the camera.
Your wedding is a celebration of all the moments that have led you two to this milestone. I have goosebumps just thinking about it.
“You are a bloody superstar. These pics are epic! I’m so happy. I couldn’t be happier, in fact! Thank you so much, we are so thrilled. I feel like you have captured our energy perfectly. Thank you thank you thank you :)”

“We absolutely LOVE all the photos! Absolute MAGIC. We used the photos for our Tea Ceremony and were dispersed all around the room. Everyone loved them and commented how natural and organic they looked! We want to say a BIG MASSIVE THANK YOU for helping us document the day. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and made it all very easy. Thank you again!”
