Why I LOVE Weddings: The precious snuggle moments with a person of your dreams, the tears in your mom’s eyes when she’s helping you put on the most gorgeous wedding dress ever, the sweet giggles of your girlfriends who are the bridesmaids you dreamt about since high school, the smiles on your guests’ faces when the most precious flower girl is walking down the isle, your magical first kiss at the wedding you imagined since being a little girl…. All these are the moments and emotions I want you to be able to re-live even 50 years after you Big Day, looking at the photos of your wedding.

I could not have been any happier with my engagement photo shoot with Alena. My fiance and I were traveling in the Destin area and decided to plan our engagement photo shoot while we were there. I stumbled across Alena's website and after viewing a couple of her other photos I decided to book with her. She was extremely professional during the whole booking process and answered all my questions within a couple days of emailing her. The actual shoot was so much fun. My fiance and I are not usually the type who enjoy having our pictures taken but Alena made us feel so comfortable and relaxed the entire time. We got all of our photos back in about 4 to 5 weeks and we fell in love with every single one of them. I would recommend her to anyone!

Alena was the photographer at my wedding at the Highlands House in Santa Rosa Beach. She did an absolutely amazing job capturing the forever memories of my ceremony and reception. My now husband and I are both camera shy and don't feel as if we're very photogenic; however, Alena made us both feel so comfortable while we were taking pictures and we were quite surprised on how well we photographed! The pictures turned out beautiful, and we like how she also took more candid shots during the reception of the dancing and partying. Our guests as well as ourselves have loved looking at those to re-live the memories.

Everything looks perfect. We are so happy with our finished product and want to thank Alena for her detailed touch on every little thing! We chose Alena purely based on quality and location. I searched through wedding wire for days looking through portfolios. It came down to two vendors, then from there it was comparing quality, style, and prices. Her prices were competitive with the other contender but we ultimately just liked her style and techniques better. Photography was our most important piece to putting our wedding together. We wanted to make sure it was captured the way we wanted it and we knew Alena could do that for us. Working with Alena was fun! It was so easy and laid back. Our kind of people;). The last thing I would want is to be stressing while trying to take pictures. We stayed on time miraculously and everything worked smoothly. As I noted before, we're completely happy with our finished product.

It was during our first meeting with Alena that I realized she was the perfect choice to capture the memories on our wedding day. Her professionalism and compassion for photography was immediately apparent. After answering only a few of her questions, she knew exactly what we wanted. The photos she captured were absolutely stunning, literally taking my breath away and still bring tears of joy to my eyes. The entire process was individualized and she catered to our every wish. We have even decided to book a love story session with her in the near future. If you have had the opportunity to view some of her work your decision will be easy to have her photograph one of the best days of your life. The quality of her work is worth every penny spent for the memories she will provide you with for the rest of your life. Needless to say, we are beyond grateful and satisfied with our photos. Not only will your photos turn out amazing, but just spending time with her was truly a pleasure. We cannot wait to work with her again!

Alena was wonderful to work with! The quality of her photos are spectacular! I have gotten so many comments saying that our photos look like they came out of a magazine. And I give her full credit for that :) Not only is she professional, she is so unbelievably nice and considerate of what you want on YOUR special day! I would defiantly recommend her!
