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. 


Photographers, are you struggling to build content that reflects your brand?



My Free




Yes, you read that right.

I’ve created a coloured Lightroom preset that I use on the majority of my work, and I want to give you free access to being able to use it too.
