About Kia

KLS Image Photography

Hey there fabulous folks! I'm Kia, the mastermind behind KLS Image Photography, your go-to guru for capturing the magic of weddings, events, and portraits! Hailing from the vibrant Washington, DC/Maryland/Virginia scene, but hey, I'm not just limited to those areas—I'm all about jet-setting for those dreamy destination elopements!

Picture this: I've been wielding a camera since I was a sprightly 15-year-old, and let me tell you, it was love at first snap. Fast forward to adulthood, where I honed my craft at Morgan State University, snagging a BA in Graphic Design with a side of Photography in 2005. But oh, I didn't stop there—I went on to conquer the realm of art and design with a MA from the illustrious Savannah College of Art & Design in 2008.

After a stint as a photo editing wizard and design extraordinaire, I decided to blend my passion for imagery with my knack for entrepreneurship. Thus, KLS Designz & Print was born, where I spent over a decade crafting visual marvels for clients far and wide. But let's be real, every great business needs killer photos, right? So, in 2018, I took the plunge, turning my photography passion into a full-blown career!

Now, hold onto your hats, because I didn't just stop at traditional education—I've got a stack of certificates from The Hollywood Art Institute & Allison School to prove my prowess in the world of digital and professional photography. Oh, and did I mention my global domination in the publishing world? That's right, you can spot my work in magazines like G.O.A.T Magazine, Brand Model Magazine, and a whole heap more—over 100 times, to be exact! Plus, I'm a card-carrying member of the prestigious PPA (Professional Photographers of America)—bow down, folks!

But wait, there's more! From the moment you hit me up to the grand reveal of your stunning images, I've got your back every step of the way. Emails? Phone calls? Editing? Galleries? You name it, I'm the one-man band making the magic happen—no outsourcing, no shenanigans, just pure unadulterated awesomeness!
