While writing this part of my website, I asked my husband to describe me. His response was “you’re a risk-taker and you like going outside of your comfort zone” and I honestly think that describes me perfectly! I’m the photographer for the couple who loves to explore, is down to get a little messy and who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. I'm also a dog mom to my big pup, Bernie, and a hard core iced coffee addict.
are looking for a photographer who also gives a damn about who you are! I’m not here to just run around with a camera in your face all day. I’m here to really learn who you and your partner are and to tell the story of the start of your lives together.
...don't take yourselves too seriously and if you love to have a good time! If you're not too scared to be silly and maybe a bit vulnerable, then we are a perfect fit! I love to go with the flow of a session to get those raw and real moments and part of that means that we won't be pausing every second to make sure every hair is in place (but don't worry, I'll tell you if it's getting a little cray).
...aren't afraid to get a little messy! Some of my favorite locations include tall grass and wildflowers and may require a bit of walking. I can't promise that you'll leave our session as clean as you did at the start, but I can promise that we'll have a great time!

We have now used Alaina several times as we have had to plan, and replan our wedding! Each time we book with her, I remember why we were so lucky to book her. From the moment we met her and planned out our "destination" Vermont wedding, she made us feel like we made an excellent choice. She made me and my husband feel comfortable and confident and captured our day better than I could have imagined. We cannot recommend her enough!!
She takes photos so beautiful that sometimes I cannot believe it's us in them. Working with her was amazing - she is incredibly polite, sweet and very well organized and knowledgeable. She was always available if I had questions, but usually she was answering my questions before I even had to ask. For our wedding, she took insanely beautiful portraits but also the best candids. Nothing felt forced and all the photos are breathtakingly beautiful. I cannot speak more highly about how grateful I am that she was our photographer.
Discovering Alaina's Instagram profile, we loved her way of illuminating subjects and emotions in her photos while using natural light as a source. From our first consultation, the planning conversations over several months, and before and after saying our I Do's, our deepest gratitude would even go to the quality of Alaina's presence. We'll never forget how she grounded us when we were preparing for possible rain two days before the wedding. Alaina, you are truly remarkable with and without your camera!
