Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Hi there! I am Kavya Iyer and I have been a photographer for four years now. I inherited my love of photography from my father when I was very young. After spending seven years as a Software Engineer, I had to get back to my passion. I studied photography at Bangalore School Of Arts and Photography (BSOAP) and did freelance photography in Bangalore, India for three years. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA with my husband last year. My primary focus is on lifestyle photography and I love using natural light. I do weddings, engagements, events, couple, family, kids, maternity and pet photo sessions. Reach out to me if you are interested in my services.

I hired Kavya to photograph a fund raising event I organized. She displayed great attention to detail, provided edited photos in a very timely manner and captured some great moments. Highly recommended!

Kavya was so amazing to work with and her ideas were really great! She has clear communication, positive energy, and her smile is captivating, so you can feel comfortable immediately. I appreciated her patience, and direction on where to place my hands or where to look. I would love to work with her again!

I am floored by how utterly beautiful the photographs Kavya took and edited are. My husband, 10 month old baby and I went to the Natural Bridges beach park in Santa Cruz for a 20 minute Fall Mini Session, expecting maybe a few photos would be cute enough for a holiday card and to frame in our house, but she sent us a gallery of like 90 STUNNING images. I don't know how she managed to get that in just 20 minutes, I'm seriously in awe. She was delightful to work with as well, very easygoing, friendly, and our 10 month old -- who has been getting stranger anxiety with everyone lately -- immediately warmed up to her. The images she captured of him smiling and playing ended up being fantastic because of that. She also took the best pictures I've ever seen of my husband ever. I didn't imagine we could get such beautiful photos, and I'm beyond pleased. She also had an extremely fast turnaround, just about a week and a half. Do not hesitate to have Kavya take your family/couple/engagement photos. I'm not big on writing reviews in general but am so inspired by this great experience with her.

Details: Family or children's portrait • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • 6 - 10 shots • Digital or online download • Ready to hire the right photographer now • The portrait photographer travels to me • I travel to the portrait photographer

Kavya could not have done a better job with our engagement photos! She was prompt to reply and arrange a rather quick appointment with us as we were on a deadline. She was friendly and professional throughout the shoot, providing the right amount of suggestions/tips to get the perfect shots without being overbearing. She is also quite adventurous, climbing down rocks with camera in hand to get to a beach in order to get the perfect shot! I ended up with so many great pictures that she sent within 2 days after the shoot. I would definitely recommended her for all your photography needs.

Details: Candid style (captured in the moment) • Artistic style (focus on composition, lighting) • Natural / environmental style (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • One location • 1 - 10 shots • Online or digital proofs and prints • $ (basic) • The engagement photographer travels to me
