Meet Jenner’s talented photographer

The woman behind those amazing Jenner pics is 26-year-old Amber Asaly and she has quite a talent for making her subjects pop on film. Of course, she’s working with some beautiful people and gorgeous locations, but she still has an eye for pulling it all together for some stunning shots.

Asaly has accompanied Jenner on her girls’ trips with pals like Sofia Richie, Stassie Karanikolaou, Yris Palmer, and on vacations, snagging pics of the reality star/millionaire beauty mogul on a yacht, wearing designer duds and skimpy bikinis.

Asaly doesn’t pose with Jenner and Co. but is tagged @amberasaly on the pics, which include the Kylie Skin trip to Turks and Caicos, the birthday getaway to Italy, and the trip to Vegas.

Jenner invites her photographer friend along

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Asaly shared that she’s been asked to tag along for these trips, noting: “This summer has been f**king amazing. Kylie invited me on her Kylie Skin trip as a friend but also to catch the vibes and get cute pictures. And when I’m in a beautiful location with beautiful people and I happen to have dope cameras. I’m gonna do my thing no matter what. And they want dope pictures too, so it kinda just works hand-in-hand.”

She shared: “Turks and Caicos was amazing. It was so, so beautiful, and everything was just photo-shoot ready, so it made everything really easy — gorgeous natural light, gorgeous location, the house that we stayed in was just insane, or mansion, I can’t even call it a house.”

She continued: “It was right on the beach. We did some fun water activities. We went out. We just had such a great time. All of Kylie’s amazing outfits, all of Sofia’s amazing outfits — all the girls had just beautiful clothes. Their makeup was done, their hair was done, so everything kinda just turned into a photo shoot. It would just be us hanging out and me being like, ‘Okay, we gotta go to the beach right now, the sun is setting, we gotta shoot this.’”

Asaly is so good at what she does that, of course, Jenner wanted her along for her birthday trip aboard a yacht in Italy with Sofia Richie, Scott Disick, Travis Scott, Stormi, and Kris Jenner.

Of the bikini pics she took on the trip, she noted, “Those photos just looked insane, Kylie’s body looked insane, her face was perfect, the light was amazing. We shot it in 15 minutes and they’re our favorite photos ever.”

No Photoshop, haters

As for all the speculation about Photoshopping the photos, Asaly can confirm that she doesn’t change anything except for color correcting. She explained: “I’ll be like, ‘Let me color correct, let me do a couple things to them.’ And then I send to [Kylie], and it just goes from there.”

She added: “I feel like film captures a vibe so much better than digital ever can and ever will, because it’s one moment, click. And then that’s it… You don’t have 100 opportunities, you don’t have an SD card… It’s just one shot. That’s it.”
