Get to Know Me

I'm a Dog Loving, Step Counting, Travel-Crazy Accountant With A Passion For Photography!

I'm Alaina


When I learned that Amy and Trever’s wedding venue was on a yacht, I’ll be honest: I was a little intimidated by the potential photography challenges I could encounter by being on a boat! But once everyone adjust to the unique situation of a yacht wedding, we all had so much fun enjoying the charming, beautiful space onboard.

Amy and Trever have been together for seven years after meeting at work. They have built a life in San Bernardino, but always love visiting Newport Beach, so they knew they wanted to get married in their favorite place!

Amy and Trever’s wedding day was special from start to finish. Amy’s sister made beautiful bridesmaids, Trever’s mother took the time to thank Amy for being a good parent to Trever’s children, and Trever and Amy’s sweet love for each other was clear throughout the ceremony and reception!

My favorite thing about photographing a wedding on a yacht was that the lighting seemed to be just right all day long! I think I can thank the all-over white of the backdrop.

While every venue requires some adjustment from the photographer, I take pride in capturing each person’s special day, and I’m happy to rise to the challenge! I wish Amy and Trever all the best in this new chapter as husband and wife.

Cheers, Alaina
