I'm Alaina


Last year, I had the unforgettable opportunity of capturing Tanya and Austin’s engagement session while they were in California. With their love of adventure and national parks, we chose Joshua Tree as the perfect spot to represent their love. I have a blog on their engagement session if you want to check it out!

When Tanya and Austin later approached me with the request to document their wedding in Johns Island, South Carolina, I could hardly contain my excitement. I knew from our earlier interaction that this couple had a unique charm, an irreplaceable bond that was a joy to capture through my lens. I eagerly accepted the honor of being a part of their special day, anticipating the beautiful moments that were yet to be framed.

Johns Island, with its quaint charm and tranquil streets, was the perfect setting for their wedding. It was as unique and captivating as the couple themselves, offering an idyllic canvas for their love story. The anticipation of the upcoming ceremony was palpable, but there was also a sense of calm, a testament to the confident love that Tanya and Austin shared.

Before the bustle of the rehearsal dinner, we stole away for a quiet photo session on the serene streets of Johns Island. This session was not just a shoot; it was a collection of intimate moments, frozen in time.

These photos serve not just as gentle reminders of their wedding rehearsal, but also as beautiful memories of the entire magical wedding weekend. The love between Tanya and Austin was palpable in every frame, their connection strong, and their happiness infectious.
