Hi, I’m Kayla

Owner + Head Photographer

Hey There! I am Kayla Kurkowski! 

I started Clever Candid Photography LLC in September of 2013 Portrait Photographer. I shot everything and anything that ran in front of my lens! In 2016, I slowed down and started to concentrated my focus on Wedding Photography and 18+ photography.  In 2018 I started to expand into a team effort and now I have a team of some amazing photographers that help me hit those perfect moments!

So, Let me tell you a little bit about myself! 

On top of photography, I am a serial entrepreneur and own 2 other companies.  I own a company that helps small business owners + photographers get in front of their potential clients online and build their online presence. I also own a company that mentors small business owners + photographers build their business foundations and get their backends, frontends, socials, websites, ICA, etc all on the same page. 

In my personal time I spend time traveling the world with my husband, Ken. When we are home we spend time doing projects around our house and taking care of stuff on our property! There is always a list of stuff to do around here. 

I shoot with Canon R mirrorless, Canon 70D, Phantom 4 Pro and love shooting love stories and landscapes when we are traveling. I love shooting natural light as much as possible and shooting outdoors. It gives so much depth to a photo. 

I can’t wait to get to know everyone!

Hello everyone! I am Ken Kurkowski!

I have been apart of the Clever Candid Photography Team from the very beginning but you wont see me out in the field or see much of my face around here because thats really not my style but either way…

Let me tell you a little bit about myself! 

For fun I like to hang out in the garage working on the small machines I have, traveling the world and working on projects around the house.

I work on the back end of Kayla’s businesses and make sure everything runs seamless for her and her clients. 

Even though I won’t meet many of you, I am glad to see that you are part of the Clever Candid Family!
