Sharing the same burning passion to tell love stories through our lens has taken our marriage to a whole new level. Doing what we love, pouring our joined hearts into our work is a dream come true. We bring out the best in each other and that's an amazing advantage to have in our business. One dreaming up a vision while the other begins organizing and executing (Can you guess which is which!?) makes us an unstoppable team dedicated to create the best experience for our clients.
If you like pina-coladas and getting caught in the rain... Just kidding! Working with us is going to be the most epic double date you've ever had! Get ready for an adventure! We're gonna style those outfits and walk you through each pose. Whether we go hiking up the Blue Ridge Mountains, hop in the car at 5 am for a sunrise session at the Outer Banks, or ride an elevator to a downtown roof-top catching the skyline... it will be a fun, laugh-until-it-hurts kind of day with your newest Hype girls! (Don't let the beard fool you, Reg is the best Hype-girl!) We'll bring the cameras, you bring the champagne!

But…there is one reminder above all the others that never lets us forget about how important it is to hold that camera at your wedding. It’s a somber reminder. One that we feel deep down in our chest each time...
Is Wedding Photography, that important?
— Cheyenne J.
"How you meet them professionally is how they genuinely are personally. They have a strong love for what they do..."
— Anna B.
"They were dedicated to our needs and they made sure our session was nothing less that perfect, and our pictures show it!"
Reggie and Kala Hurst are a husband & wife photography duo located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Beginning as hobbyist they turned their love of photography into a successful photography business. Beginning business together in 2013. When starting out they realized that the biggest issue in the photography industry was clients felt uncomfortable, self-conscious, and awkward in front of the camera.
Knowing this they decided to build the foundation of their business on two simple rules. To help everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, and deliver beautiful photos.
Wedding photography specialist, Reg & Kala have personally photographed almost 300 weddings together.
Primarily serving couples and families throughout their home state of North Carolina. Reg & Kala enjoy the travel that naturally comes with their career.
As true experts in their industry Reg & Kala have also mentored, trained, and hired other elite photographers to their team.
Reg and Kala will tell you people come first, and that their relationships with their clients, associate photographers, and friends are what matter most to them.
You deserve to feel (and look) confident in your photos. From your engagement session, to bridal portraits, and wedding day we've got you covered!
We are both readers, but Reg goes through 2-3 a month. From business, to faith, and self reflection books, these are the reads he recommends to all of our friends!
