Hi there! Welcome to the  blog, a journal about my life, work and some other pretty things!

Hi, I'm kylie.

Elegant Summer Wedding | Winchester Country Club | Meadow Vista, California | Samantha + Derek

Jul 26, 2019

These two faces may look pretty familiar to you. (If you were following along on my Instagram this week, you were there when I revealed my promo video that gave you a glimpse into the #KylieComptonCouple Experience. If you missed, no worries! Just click here to see it!) But yes, this is the sweet couple whose elegant summer country club wedding day you got to follow along in that very video (did you sneak that peak of their amazingly adorable grand entrance??). Today, however, these two get the spotlight all to themselves and boy, do they deserve it!

Derek is a golf instructor and PGA member as of recently (go Derek!) so it is only natural that they would host their nuptials at a country club! I love when a wedding day incorporates such personal aspects about my couples. Samantha did just that by having a special Hawaiian dance with her grandfather and grandmother. They live on the island of Kauai, and Samantha has spent numerous summer vacations exploring the island. Many a tear-filled eye watched on during this special dance, including my own tear-filled eyes! They carried this theme on to their honeymoon where Samantha was able to share the island with Derek. She showed him all of her favorite spots, but also got to explore some new places as well!! When I go to Kauai, I know who to call =D


Samantha and Derek, I am so sad that my time with you as your wedding photographer is over, but I am so happy to have you as friends! Samantha, you can strike up an Instagram message with me anytime (our little inside joke) =D I will always look back at my time with you two with happy memories! Our final consultation, could you really call that a consultation?? Honestly, it was more like friends hanging out, grabbing a coffee and chatting about the happiest day of your life! Thank you for opening up your wedding day for the promo video and sharing your day with all future #KylieComptonCouples! And thank you for trusting me with your precious memories.

Until next time,



Derek’s face when he saw Samantha during their first look… isn’t it the sweetest??

Oh you can bet I was crying my eyes out too!

Is there any wonder I am #TeamVeil?? (heart eyes!)

Always one of my favorites from the day… the #KylieComptonSandwich!
