"These are everything we dreamed of and more."

"Jayla. We are speechless. These are everything we dreamed of and more. You crushed it. 

The day and the whole trip was such a blur. We're so grateful for all of these to look back on and help jog our memory. We waited to look through these together when Jalen got home from work today and I bawled like a baby the whole way through (especially during Jalen's reaction as I walked down the aisle -- I didn't have a great view of him as I walked down and I was totally bummed out that I missed that tear-jerker moment in real life, so WOW am I thankful to have photos of his reaction. And the ones of our people and puppy in attendance -- SO STINKING SPECIAL). 

We seriously can't wait to see the rest! 

Thank you for everything! We are so beyond grateful!"

"6 MONTHS OUT I STILL LOOK AT OUR WEDDING PHOTOS EVERY DAY BECAUSE I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE HOW PERFECT SHE CAPTURED OUR LOVE."

"[We] Can’t recommend Westward Up enough! In July Jayla captured our sunrise wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park. I was on the unorganized side of things as a bride so I worried about working out details with a photographer. Jayla made everything so easy. In all areas she was extremely professional, asked so many good questions to get us on track with photos, and met with us beforehand to have a clear plan. The day of the wedding she made the photos so easy by giving clear and easy to understand instructions and prompts. The photos turned out better than we could’ve ever expected. Sometimes I find myself feeling like photos of different events in my life didn’t do the moment justice but that was NOT the case at all with our wedding gallery. She has a gift for capturing the emotion and how the day really felt. 6 months out I still look at our wedding photos every day because I just can’t believe how perfect she captured our love. A few days after our wedding we got tons of sneak peek pictures to reminisce on the day while on our honeymoon which was an awesome bonus. If you’re looking for an amazing photographer JAYLA IS YOUR GIRL!!!"

"WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL!"

"I’ll start by saying; Jayla is the most talented photographer I have ever seen! Hands down. Her work is absolutely phenomenal! What she captures on the camera is stunning. Jayla photographed my husband and I’s wedding in Tulum, and it exceeded all of our wildest dreams. She captured the most pure and magical moments from our special day. we are forever grateful! Not to mention she graciously gave us an amazinggg deal. Not only did she capture our day and love so perfectly, but she also was so helpful on our phone calls with helping me figure out details for the day and what I wanted, she was very laid back, and she helped put me at ease because I knew I could trust her. We loved working with her so much, she is such a fun, adventurous, creative, kind hearted, and wonderful person. I feel like she can sense a couple’s personality and is able to adapt and capture photos in a way that matches and vibes with each couple so well and unique to them. If you ever get the amazing opportunity to have Jayla as your photographer, DO IT!! You will not regret it, she really is one of a kind!"

"[JAYLA] IS A TRUE GEM IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY WORLD WHO PUTS EVERY BIT OF HER SOUL INTO HER WORK."

Jayla was absolutely wonderful to work with! My husband and I hired her before our wedding for our engagement photos and, ultimately, for our wedding day. We interviewed several photographers and decided to go with Jayla due to her warm and vibrant personality. She was punctual, professional, friendly, and easy to get along with. She has delivered my absolute favorite photos to reminisce on and somehow perfectly captured our love for each other. Her photos are true reminders of our special day. I have recommended her to several friends already and will continue to recommend her services. Book her while she’s available because she is a true gem in the photography world who puts every bit of her soul into her work.
