I am a specialist in capturing you, as your truest self, in your safest space.


Hey hi,

I’m Kaihla Tonai



Life feels at its fullest when we are given the unrestricted, whole-hearted permission to be ourselves. Over the course of the last decade, I’ve learned first hand how disheartening it can be to not be given the space to be who we truly know ourselves to be. This realization has since been the very foundation of my business.

I am an educator and a freelance photographer specializing in elopements and couples.

I believe that by giving my couples the honest space to feel comfortable with yourselves and the relationship that you share, is the only way to capture still images that truly emote the safe dwelling space that you both have found within the arms of one another. 

The Curated Club is Expanding

coming in 2020, you’ll be able to pair your monthly sessions with more a more in-depth learning experience.

The Curated Club has been a BLAST so far this year, and with all of the positive responses and attendance that I’ve had so far, I’ve been busy working on the expansion of the Curated Club as we move into the New Year. Expect many updates to come throughout the rest of the year, but for now, read more about #thecuratedclub, or grab one of the last few available spaces to come and shoot!
