Think about it……on your wedding day you will spend more time with the photographer than anyone else. We know it's important to feel comfortable and connected with each other, so let’s get acquainted (we’ll go first!).

Meet Kai + tim

We are destination wedding photographers Kailee and Tim, lovers of beauty, deep belly laughs and fluffy dogs. We are kind and adventurous people that cherish once in a lifetime experiences.

Whether we are roaming the whitewashed towns of Santorini or photo-rallying a bridal party before the ceremony. All of it is precious to us, and we live to capture it.

Our photography style is charming, light, harmonious and warm. The most rewarding part of this job is capturing the unique essence of each couples’ relationship.

As design enthusiasts, we relish in witnessing our couples in the atmosphere they create on their wedding day. From the special, meaningful touches to the overall aesthetic, it peaks our creative inspiration and informs how we highlight our couples in “their world.” We value our couples’ authenticity, expression and joy — we celebrate all love here!

We are skilled at capturing movement and the candid, “in between” moments of the wedding day.

Whether it's a sweet glance from your beloved or the flower girl exploring the whirl of her tutu. We will curate and capture all of the essential, posed shots, and thrive off capturing all of the sweet, natural moments that help to breathe life back into a day that can sometimes feel (and look!) like a dream. Together, these styles create an elegant and captivating gallery that will pull at your heartstrings and transport you back to your wedding day.

"Every single detail, emotion, laugh, smile, and kiss was captured so perfectly, and beautifully."

-Jada & Chris 

Each image takes us immediately back to the moment it was captured- the exact feelings at that time, and pure joy that we felt every minute of our perfect day. Kai and Tim have impeccable attention to detail, capturing not only us, and our families, but each of our guests, and the joy that they, too, were experiencing throughout the night. These photos let us see what everyone else was seeing and feeling, and the incredible ability to be there in that moment, over and over again. This album will always bring us back to the best day ever, in a way that makes it feel like we are still present in those special moments. Their work is truly art. We are forever grateful for Kailee & Tim and being a part of our special day.

Kai & Tim

Kai

Kailee (pronounced "Kylie") is the proud founder of KDP. For over ten years she's been dedicated to curating romantic photoshoots that capture the special love that radiates between her couples. With experience as a wedding planner, a bride and a wedding photographer, she brings a level of support and care to her couples that extends beyond the snap of her shutter. You may find her roller skating around her neighborhood, looking up flights out of the country or admiring the coastal vistas around her beloved city of Charleston.

Favorite show: Ted Lasso
Favorite place: Australia
Favorite season: Spring

tim

Since Tim fell for Kai in high school he has been supporting her in her photography dreams, even if that means carrying her bags at a photoshoot. Years later, here he is as the second, essential half of KDP, and a skilled photographer and drone pilot at that. He's a fabulous cook, a committed ball-throwing dog dad and an enthusiastic dancer (sometimes he gets a little too excited and rips his pants on the dance floor.) In his free time you may find him in a serene state of mind rowing through the waterways of Clark's Sound, or rollerblading in his neighborhood.

Favorite show: Peaky Blinders
Favorite place: Hawaii
Favorite season: Summer

Finn

(aka Smooshie 1) : This precious nugget is Finn, the first Australian Labradoodle that stole our heart and turned us into proud, pup parents. She's an old soul that loves life's simple pleasures such as a good snuggle and playing ball. She's part human, part doodle and part perfection.

Favorite toy: ball
Favorite season: Anything under 70 degrees
Favorite snack: Apples

Koa

(aka Smooshie 2) : We added another Smooshie to the fam! Koa means "brave one" in Hawaiian and this tenacious, energizing puppy adds so much spunk to our home. She's also an Australian Labradoodle and is actually Finn's niece! She's a passionate licker with a playful, adventurous spirit.

Favorite toy: any toy Finn is currently playing with
Favorite season: Anything under 70 degrees
Favorite snack: Broccoli

"Our experience with Tim and Kailee, has been nothing short of exceptional."

-Hilary & Michael


Tim and Kailee's personable nature made every interaction enjoyable, and their laid-back approach added a comforting touch while still maintaining a keen eye for perfection. They effortlessly went above and beyond to capture the most exquisite shots, making the entire process not only smooth but also fun. Kailee has the cutest laugh that has a way of putting everyone at ease, and Tim and Kailee both fit right in with our wedding party, making the day feel so organic and stress-free. Throughout the wedding planning, their organized approach and regular check-ins demonstrated their commitment to ensuring every detail was covered. What truly sets them apart is their ability to capture not just the planned moments but also the unexpected, adding a depth to our memories that we hadn't anticipated. We literally can't stop looking at our wedding photos because they just captured the day so perfectly.

Let us capture your once in a lifetime experience and the moments in between.
