Coffee, Dogs, The Office ( DUH!), Parks and Rec ( Also DUH!), Pizza, Sushi, Walt Disney World, Tattoos, and my couples!
Hello! My name is Kayce Shoffner. I am a wedding photographer based out of Central Pennsylvania. East Coast girl dreaming of living on the West Coast, in the desert! I am a wife to my husband Brett and a mother of two beautiful girls, Avery and Olive. Can't forget my two pups Molly & Arlo. My obsession with photography started at a young age and it still blows my mind I get to do this for a living. I'm all about unique, artistic, fun loving photos for my couples. Rad images for my RAD couples! I want each of my couples to experiences an adventure that we go on together!
I am passionate about the beauty of marriage and the union of two souls people becoming one. I believe in the intimacy and covenant of marriage. I believe that marriage is a sacred bond that should not be entered into lightly. Love is RAD! Marriage is RAD! It is created to be a bond that is lasting! Not here today, gone tomorrow. I believe in a love that is worth fighting for. A love that you will not cast aside. And it is a pleasure to photograph couples who believe and trust in that. The greatest thing is LOVE (1 Corinthians 13:13) and I am honored to be able to capture it in its essence. Your wedding day is not only a proclamation of your love for each other but the willingness to sacrifice for it; through thick and thin, on the mountain tops and in the valleys of life.
I use all Canon gear. I use two Canon's 5d Mark iv and 5d Mark iii. I use an assortment of lenses for both Engagement and Wedding but my favorites are canons 45mm tilt shift, 35mm, and 50mm. I also love to play with prisms. I like to get weird with my prisms.
My story about photography is cray cray. Long story short, I was living in Hawaii and my fathers best friend was a professional underwater photographer and I was like " yea, this is cool". Spark started and then turned into a big fat FIRE! I've been taking photos since I was a teen but started really pursing photography in 2010. I started trickling into wedding photography in 2011 and started full wedding seasons in 2013 and haven't looked back!
The answer is yes! I absolutely give direction. This chick ain't gonna leave ya hanging! I do help pose and then play games, ask a questions, and do all sorts of fun things to get you loose and having fun. Don't worry... I never find a couple awkward EVER in front of the camera. Just relax, have fun, and you will look awesome! I promise!
Uhh, FRICK YEAH! Depending on where you are getting married ( Joshua Tree, Mexico, etc) I may even offer a discount if it's a bucket list item for myself. So contact me and lets hit the road!
