More about me!
Video by Shay Chandler

My name is Kayla Kozar (still going by Kayla Capps Kozar for business purposes) and I am a photographer serving the Raleigh, North Carolina area and beyond. I am a graduate of Appalachian State University (Go Mountaineers!) where I received my bachelor's degree in Commercial Photography while also developing an interest in video production.

I have been taking photos ever since I was four years old with my little pink barbie camera, but have been operating as a professional photographer since 2012.

Photographing people is what I love to do! I'm a fan of big smiles, fun shoots, and creating long lasting memories. I delve into the personalities of my subjects and show them for their true selves. I aim to tell a story with every image. No matter who you are, or what you're about, I guarantee that above all else we will have fun and get some great images in the process!


I've been published on the front cover of Teen Ink Magazine five times and inside the magazine over twenty times. I've also had my work featured inside "Bullying Under Attack" and received awards in many photography contests, including being chosen as a finalist in a Photographer's Forum Magazine contest (out of over 17,000 entries).
