About Us


“We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imageries.”

KaiSquared Photography is based in San Diego, CA. We are currently offering our services within the Southern California area. We specialized in a wide range of services such as couples, engagements, weddings, maternity and family portraits.

KaiSquared was founded by Harvey “Kai” Ly and Maty “Kai” Petcharaporn. We have been best friends since birth, even though it took 16 years for us to meet. Aside from sharing the same nickname, we also share the same passion for photography. What started off as a hobby, shooting landscape photos on vacations and hiking excursions evolved into capturing precious moments of our families and friends.

Family is at the center of our hearts and souls. We love to take pictures of our families because we believe every picture tells a story. A story that we want to remember and share for years to come. Because of our family, we became very good at what we do. Today our passion is to extend our expertise to helping other families capture those precious moments that will tell their story.

KaiSquared Photography is new to the business of photography but definitely not new to the world of photography. Together we provide over 20 years of experience using a variety of cameras, ranging from 35mm to DSLR, as well as proficiency with the latest image editing software, including Photoshop and Lightroom.
