for the coastal couple with big hearts, gentle spirits, and the desire to have a dang good time on their wedding day.

Wanna hear a hot take? You should actually spend time with your fiance at your wedding reception. You should get to eat as much as you want. And you should get to savor every minute of it - not spend all day wishing it away. 

Sure, there is some inevitable stress that comes with planning + executing a good wedding. But if you do it right and hire the right people, it can also be one of the greatest memories of your life. If you are a couple craving a wedding that allows you to actually enjoy yourself and celebrate the way you want, let's chat. I wanna help you document your day + relive it through the photos for years to come!

inquire for your date

"I highly recommend her to anyone needing a wedding photographer."

Where to begin. Cailyn was not only so friendly, warm, and comfortable to work with on our wedding day, but she truly made her greatest efforts to make it all seamless. The pictures are STUNNING to say the least, and she really knows how to make you feel glowing in front of a camera. 10/10 every day of the week!!!! We love Cailyn!!!!

" I am so thankful we chose her to be our photographer!"

Cailyn was so wonderful to work with for my bridals and on our wedding day. As chaotic as 2020 has been, Cailyn worked with us through all of it and was so supportive when plans were changed. She did an amazing job at capturing our special day
