“Best photography in San Diego!! Kyla recently photographed my wedding and it's hard to put into words how grateful and impressed we are! Guests and the bridal party are still raving about her professionalism and creativity. She makes you look and feel beautiful with the right poses and unique ideas; it's amazing! Kyla kept the entire day running smoothly so that we would get all of the best pictures. She truly knows what she is doing and Is extremely helpful with many aspects of the wedding. Aside from her professionalism and amazing photographs, she is a breath of fresh air and so much fun to be around. This company is a must for any photography you need!” -Lauren & Josh
“We just loved Spotlight Studios and our amazing photographer, Kristina! We got rave reviews on our engagement photos and could not say no to working with Kristina again for our wedding. She put us at ease and made our pictures turn out so sweet and authentic. We love how she captured our laughter and joy. Our wedding picture sneak peak brought back all the wonderful memories from that day. She captured the moments and details beautifully. The studio was so easy to work with and really helped us navigate the stresses of wedding planning. Could not recommend Kristina and Spotlight Studios any higher!” -Lindsey & Peter
“There are not enough superlatives to describe Kyla. Not only is she incredibly talented and professional, but she also is beautiful soul who genuinely cares for her clients. Photography was our highest priority for our wedding. After thorough research, it started to get worrisome that we could find very few wedding photographers who stood out to us. One day, we started sifting through some old mail and found we had received an offered for a free engagement session from Spotlight Studios. We looked at their website and for the first time, we found a portfolio that made us feel something. We decided to give it a trial run and see how the engagement photos would turn out. Unlike most engagement photos, we wanted to do it indoors at a luxe Parisian boutique hotel. We worried about how they would turn out, but Kyla exceeded all our expectations. Her artistic direction and her ability to capture incredible moments truly helped transport us and made us feel we were no longer in San Diego. After that, we had no doubt in our mind about her. Over the next year, Kyla became more than just our photographer. With her wealth of experience, she had invaluable advice for all aspects of our wedding.”

I highly recommend their services. You will not be disappointed!” -Mackenzie. S

FAMILY PORTRAITS TESTIMONIALS
“Kyla did a phenomenal job with our family pictures. I would highly recommend having her shoot any and all professional photos you would like to have done.” -Jessica R.
"We were completely blown away. Our family of 4 met Kristina in downtown San Diego for some fun urban shots. We had no specific ideas of what exactly we wanted, but she just went with us, walking a few blocks and stopping along the way for some shots. When we met with Kyla at the studio a week or so later to view the pics, we were in love with our pictures! She got so many amazing shots of both our family and individual shots of our kids. They were just beautiful and we had such a hard narrowing down our choices. Kyla was such a pleasure to work with helping us choose the best options for us and we were left with amazing treasures for our family forever. Thank you so much Kristina and Kyla, you're awesome!" -Kathy L
"We did our son's six month pictures with Joanna at Spotlight Studios. It was a great experience from beginning to end. Kyla helped us to pick a good location for a six month old over the phone when we scheduled our session. Then Joanna met us at Balboa Park and did the actual shoot. Joanna was friendly and engaging. Our son was fussy and kind of uncooperative so we were pretty worried that the pictures were not going to turn out super great. But, when we did the viewing, the pictures were absolutely amazing. The scenery and the light was beautiful and the shots she took made us look beautiful too. Best of all, there were tons of great pictures of my little man. I never would have known he was fussy if I wasn't there myself. As a generality, I would prefer the convenience of doing the viewing online, but in this case, I can see why they do it in their studio. First you do a slideshow set to music for all of your images, then you go through a first run and get rid of any you don't like, then they have a neat little program that helps you compare similar images and helps you narrow your images down to the ones you want. Kyla was super friendly and helpful and made the whole viewing very enjoyable. I highly highly recommend Spotlight Studios. Not only were they a joy to work with, the final product is exactly what we were hoping for." -Christina G
"Kyla is amazing! She took our family pictures at PB Pier and got some amazing shots. She's professional, but also fun, FUNNY and makes the session a great experience. She was great with my kids (8, 4, 2) too!" -Jess M

"Kyla from Spotlight Studios is wonderful. She met us on the beach to take our family holiday photos, and she did a spectacular job! We have never received SO many compliments on our holiday card. Kyla has a great eye, and captured each member of our family so perfectly and also took many great family shots. She takes all different styles of photos from arty to traditional in various lighting and settings. She's a real pro, and we can't recommend her highly enough!" -Susan M

I am so happy with the photos that I ended up getting more photos than I planned. :) I can't wait to get my cd with pictures to show them to my friends and family. Thank you Kyla!" -Cindy D

“The best portrait studio in San Diego! Kyla is simply amazing. I found Spotlight Studios 2 years ago while pregnant with my first child. I really wanted beautiful maternity pictures, and that is exactly what I received. We had never had professional pictures taken before and wasn't sure what to expect. Kyla was wonderful at letting us be natural and enjoy the moment while giving directions to get the best shots. We loved the experience and pictures so much that when I wanted family photos this year I knew exactly who to call. We again got an amazing session, this time with our 1 year old. She was patient, efficient, lovely to chat with and just such a great photographer. She really knows the areas that she shoots at and even brought a stuffed monkey for distracting our little one. Did I mention she had scrabble tiles for adorable photos..Kyla thought of everything! I feel so lucky to have found a photography studio that can capture in a picture what I was feeling at the moment the photograph was taken. Anyone can take a picture, but it takes a true artist to be able to portray that emotion through a lens.” -Holly W.
“Spotlight Studios was amazing!!! Kristina Y was our photographer and she was great with our family and took the most stunning pictures. The review of the pictures was a great experience too. They have a bunch of toys so my son had a blast while I could enjoy the beauty of all the pictures. Will definitely use them again on our next trip!! -Keyleigh C.
“We just had our first EVER photo shoot with our 17 month old daughter in the neighborhood we lived and built our life around before her . What a wonderful experience! Each location had a memory that was significant and special to us. It was so much fun and I can't wait to see our photos! I am a small business owner who used Groupon as a tool to find clients and build my business 6 years ago. I respect the quality of work provided for such a nominal amount earned. Kyla did such a fantastic job that we will continue to use Spotlight Studio to capture ALL of our special moments going forward. Thank you so much! It was such a lovely experience. With so much gratitude” -Elisa. M
