Hi! I'm Jaila Rykse.
Born n' raised in Kalamazoo, MI. I am wife to my high school sweetheart and mommy to our beautiful daughter, Haven Mae. Western Michigan University graduate - major, Organizational Communications w/ minor in Psychology! I am a Support Assistant for a High School ministry and the Generations Division at my awesome local church, Valley Family Church!
I am a self taught photographer and have been in business since JAN 2016! I love my family, friends, writing, eating doughnuts, watching movies and of course capturing beautiful moments. Jesus is always put first and I love who He's created me to be.
I got married to my best friend, Joshua Lee, on August 14, 2015. It was by far the most magical day. We called it a #rykseriot because everyone has to have a hashtag for their wedding, right?! :) Yes, there was a barn and it was outdoor, everything not unique, but it was everything we wanted! He's the one who inspired me most to get my photography business off and running. He's got the sweetest love, boldest confidence and so hilarious. We work together as well, at our local church and he helps on the budgeting side of this personal business! My husband is the real MVP.
