I can't say enough good things about the amazing work Alena did as my wedding photographer (and, in a way, my wedding mentor!) Alena was the first vendor I booked and she helped set the tone for my wedding from the start. She gave me recommendations for any vendor or service I asked about, went back and forth with me about various details (e.g., timing of the ceremony, how to get the best photography experience on my limited budget - 2nd photographer vs. extra hour of photography, etc.), and answered any question I had, even the random ones about the color of the gulf in Mexico Beach! Alena responded to every single email I sent her promptly (she often responded within a couple of minutes!) - it was amazing how far this went to reduce my stress leading up to the wedding! When I changed my mind about my ceremony music at the last minute, Alena was able to refer me to her boyfriend Michael, who also did an excellent job and even helped with photography on the day of the wedding. Alena captured every shot I asked for, gave good guidance about timeline adjustments when we ran a bit behind schedule on the day of the wedding, and reassured me tremendously throughout the day with her calm demeanor and extensive knowledge about weddings.

Alena showed me a few shots as she went throughout the night, so I already knew they were going to be absolutely beautiful, but the sneak peek pictures Alena posted to facebook within a few days of the wedding were too amazing for words. I have gotten so many compliments on the photos (a mix of portraits, details, and candid moments), and so many people told me they wished they could have used Alena as their wedding photographer! The images she captured are truly stunning and priceless!

Finally, as I alluded to earlier, Alena is warm, funny, genuine, realistic, knowledgeable, and extremely talented. She was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend booking her for any event that requires a photographer!

Alena is wonderful to work with. From the first phone call we made to her we felt like we had known her forever. She is so easy to work with. Alena is unbelievably talented and captured the very essence of all the love and joy of our daughter's special day. In fact, one of her images of our daughter's wedding made it into a national photography magazine, "Shutter".
I highly recommend Alena, and believe your only regret would be if you didn't choose her to capture your special day!

Wow, I have so much to say about Alena! I was at a wedding finishing up my beauty services when she arrived at my bride's wedding home. She went straight to work and made the bride feel at ease. She told the rest of the family members how the day of photography was going to go, instructed everyone on the time frame and just took control of the situation from the moment she stepped into the room. She made sure to capture every detail and was so kind. A few weeks later, my bride sends me the pictures and they were breathtaking! A definite recommend!

What a great company to work with. We highly recommend.

Alena & her team are amazing!! They are so talented, and we LOVE working with them!! :)

Alena is very professional and a very talented photographer. She was a pleasure to work with and captured some beautiful moments throughout the wedding day and evening.
