Timeless & ROMANTIC WEDDINGS

EST 2014

& WORLDWIDE

Hi there, I'm KYLIE.
wedding photographer and HOPELESS ROMANTIC SOUL.

BEHIND THE LENS

My commitment is to ensure no precious moment slips away - from the meticulously planned details to the spontaneous, magical instances that truly define the spirit of your day. My style strikes a harmonious balance: I am thorough and organized, yet unobtrusive and candid. I aim to capture your essential 'must-have' moments while also stepping back to document the genuine, heartfelt scenes as they naturally unfold.

Your comfort and enjoyment are my top priorities. I'm there to blend seamlessly into your day, acting as your professional third wheel, ensuring you feel completely at ease as I capture the essence of your celebration.

" Life is a series of fleeting moments, but the memories we create are everlasting "

A little q & A

Q1.  WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?

Definitely depends on my mood, but it's a tie between Interstellar , Top Gun Maverick, Titanic and She's the Man.

Q2.  What's your go-to COMFORT MEAL?

A spicy Howler Burger  from YOMG with a side of chilli cheese fries.  That or anything with nutella.

Q3.  Favourite place in the whole world?

Queenstown, New Zealand has to be the best place on the planet. The minute you land amongst the mountains there, you  just feel completely inspired by the beautiful surroundings. But if I can't be there, I'd be wherever my husband and dog are.

Q4.  So, how much do you love photography really?

Between my husband and I, we have a cabinet containing over ten cameras, all the way from mirrorless cameras to Leica film cameras. We're a household obsessed with anything creative. Our current muse: our four year old fluffy cavoodle. 

hotography has been my lifelong passion and calling.

From the days of pocket-sized digital cameras and handheld camcorders, I've always been the one with a camera in hand, eagerly capturing every moment - from the extraordinary to the delightfully mundane. This lifelong passion for photography has shaped me into not just a professional but a storyteller who finds immense joy and fulfilment in immoralising love stories.

Each wedding I photograph is treated with the same care and attention as if it were my own.

Your comfort and enjoyment are my top priorities. I'm there to blend seamlessly into your day, acting as your professional third wheel, ensuring you feel completely at ease as I capture the essence of your celebration.

My approach is deeply personal. Instead of just snapping images, I look to capture emotions, stories, and the true essence of your day. My extensive background in event photography has honed my ability to anticipate and capture fleeting moments that others might miss, while my immersion in the romantic and sophisticated atmosphere of weddings has refined my eye for beauty and detail. My approach combines the best of both worlds – the agility and readiness to capture fleeting moments, and the artistic sensibility to frame the timeless elegance of your wedding day. This blend of skills ensures that every image I capture is not just a photo, but a story told with depth, emotion, and an eye for the extraordinary.

KIP started off with a boat party in the Docklands. The first ever university party I photographed and boy was I nervous!

Photography has been my lifelong passion and calling, allowing me to express myself and connect with the world in a way words could never capture. From a young age, I found solace and inspiration in freezing moments that convey emotions and tell stories without uttering a single word. My journey as a photographer has taken me to breathtaking landscapes, intimate moments.

Oh man, the nerves were high for this one! My first ever 12 hour wedding day was with Steph & Guy in the Yarra Valley and despite feeling so nervous, everything went perfectly. From here, 

In the events industry, we don't talk about 2020 / 2021 ... but let me just say, the minute Victoria opened up and weddings and events were back, there's barely been a moment of rest.

MY FIRST SUNRISE TO SUNSET WEDDING

CYA COVID

THE STORY GOES ON...

How did I get here ? 

Kylie Iva Photography's journey began with a dynamic boat party in the Docklands. Completely throwing myself into the deep end, my eagerness to learn and adapt was unwavering (hope you caught the puns there...) This event marked the exciting start of it all.

After completing my bachelor degree, I went full time with photography. With a team of 10 photographers, KIP was shooting up to 15 different events a week, ranging from birthdays, to engagement parties, to galas, to business and corporate events. This foundation in fast paced events is why I'm always ready for anything that can happen at a wedding.

Oh man, the nerves were high for this one! My first ever 12 hour wedding day was with in the Yarra Valley and despite feeling so nervous, everything went perfectly. This was also the year I got my iconic two camera strap and transitioned to mirrorless cameras. 

In the events industry, we don't talk about 2020 / 2021 ... but let me just say, the minute Victoria opened up and weddings and events were back, there's barely been a moment of rest. 

As nearly a decade has passed, my focus has shifted towards prioritising quality shoots over quantity events. This philosophy has naturally led me to wedding photography, where I can focus on crafting detailed, emotive, and beautifully captured memories for each of my couples. It's a fulfilling blend of art and storytelling and it's never lost on me that the photos I capture today are the one's enjoyed for generations to come.
