Kali Slaymaker Photography | Iowa City Wedding Photographer + Destination Elopements
HI! IT’S ME - KALI!
I’m a wedding and elopement photographer who loves to travel for love. I’m based in the Midwest, but you’ll find me in a different location frequently! I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Marketing Degree and launched my business of serving couples on their wedding day and throughout the planning process with the love and support from my husband and childhood sweetheart, Chance. We have a chocolate lab named Fletcher who I have the pleasure of snuggling in bed every morning and night.
I’m sarcastic, type with a LOT!!! of exclamation points, and believe in choosing to see the best in people. I love being at home with friends on our patio, but feel most excited in the mountains or on the beach. My love language is gifting giving and I’m too in love with online shopping. I can’t live without Mexican food, prosecco, and coffee! Those closest to me will tell you I also drink way more water than the average person.
I believe your wedding day should only be the first “Best day ever” to begin the rest of your best days in marriage. My focus is on capturing photos that look how the moment felt. I want you to be real and genuine with me and I promise to do the same. I get giddy for your wedding day, pack all the snacks and emergency items, and love feeling like part of your day. I’m all about making an adventure out of any situation. Your wedding day is already perfect because it’s the day you’re marrying your best friend - I’m there to help you enjoy the moment and capture those feelings through images!
I’m ALWAYS down to chat with people about dogs, favorite Netflix shows, your best adventure ever, and what makes you excited for your wedding day! Contact me so we can chat about YOUR unique wedding day!
