A wedding experience that is perfectly crafted for you.

California adventure elopement

Your greatest adventure is about to begin

surrounded by just your closest family and friends or leave the crowds behind and tie the knot on the trail you first hiked together, we’re here to do it your way. Whatever you’ve dreamed up for your wedding day, I believe in it because you and your partner’s love story deserves to be told in a way that perfectly defines you. I’m here to help you make it happen.


And I love wild love. 
I’m an adventure elopement photographer and intimate wedding photographer based in Mammoth Lakes, California who specializes in shooting the kind of love stories that run off the pages, dance outside of the lines, and feel right at home in the free fall. So go ahead, let your love run wild. I’m here to capture it all.



Kayla was absolutely amazing to work with. She was patient, understanding and most importantly up for any adventure. We chose Kayla specifically because she specializes in elopements and her expertise did not disappoint. We are not used to being photographed and did not want to be put in cheesy poses. Kayla presented us with exercises instead of poses and the results were stunning. Kayla did such an amazing job, capturing every detail and special moment. We are in love with our final pictures and would recommend Kayla Plouffe to everyone!.

Kayla is so sweet and so talented! She was also so helpful and made us feel comfortable as she took pics! We had a unique wedding venue (middle of the forest) and she found beautiful spots for all our pictures! She has great ideas and can coach anyone who might feel a little awkward taking so many pictures (like me😂) Totally recommend!!!!

1. FOR you

This might sound cliché, but I’d honestly describe my style to be authentic. And I mean that in the truest sense of the word. I desire to be completely transparent with you from our first interaction because having a connection with your photographer is something that should never be overlooked. It’s important to me that I capture what’s important to you, so I believe in honest conversations about what you’re looking for, sharing some ideas of what I could have planned, and then working together to make your dreams come true. At the end of the day, the type of subject matter I’m capturing is so unique, my style for that day tends to reflect the style of my couples. 

2. FOR me

It is so important to me to keep things simple and true to you. We’re focusing on your love story, and that’s the priority when it comes to photography and to the flow of the elopement day. Weddings are wonderful celebrations, but they can also come with a lot of outside emotions and opinions. As someone who has seen other couples be overwhelmed by external factors, it’s my heart’s desire to make your day about you. 

We had the greatest time with Kayla as our wedding photographer! She went above and beyond to make sure that we got all of the shots we wanted and never made us feel rushed and let us explore and be ourselves. Our most favorite thing she did for us was giving us moments to re-set and just be together and breathe a little slower after our ceremony. Your wedding day speeds by so quickly but Kayla had us close our eyes, breathe, and just talk for a few minutes before she would take photos so we could get settled, get excited, and just revel in the joy of being married. Bonuses: her website is super easy to use answering your pre-wedding photo ideas AND her editing style is impeccable!



When we shoot together, we’ll be enjoying beautiful sights and scenery. My goal is to help create an experience that will bring joy and excitement, while respecting and preserving the beauty of nature. It’s so important to me that we take care of the wild earth as we explore it.

I believe in doing my best to capture your true identity as a couple, which is why I don’t believe in managing interactions or forcing poses. You already know how to hold hands, kiss, dance, you don’t need me to tell you any of that, but I’m happy to provide suggestions at your request to help ease you into it all! The day of, I’ll be there to reassure you that you already know what you’re doing, encourage you to focus on one another, and keep the good vibes going.


Hey I'm Kayla!
