"alana was the best decision we made in all of our wedding planning!!"

"She is an extremely talented photographer whose personality makes her clients quickly comfortable. She goes above and beyond to serve her clients and make sure they feel supported and heard....We thought we would be uncomfortable and awkward in front of the camera, but she made us feel so at ease!...We CANNOT stop looking at how great all the pictures came out!"

-Diane + Joshua

hey there, i'm alana

I can seamlessly anticipate the big moments, let you soak up the little ones a minute longer, play timeline-tetris to keep us on track and stress-free throughout the day, and get formals out of the way to get you back into the AC and back to the PARTY!!!!!

I’m big on nostalgia (any fellow pisces here?!) and photos that are more for the memory than the looks alone, but the best is when those two combine into an epically beautiful, momentously meaningful photo album that reads like a storybook and sparks a conversation of endless tangents– ya know, the ones that happen when every side-memory was just as good as the other one. 

When I’m not photographing weddings or proposals, you can find me on my Peloton at home, booking a flight to a new destination–or Cincinnati, where I’m from–or whipping up a favorite recipe I’ll probably make three more times in the same week (lol).

my story by the numbers

I'm always down to travel

Newsflash: planning a wedding is hard enough without adding travel in the mix…and it’s even harder when you do. 

Know you’re in good hands when I travel with you, no matter the reason. 

Whether you want a destination engagement session to bring a slice of home back to the city or commemorate how you met (college in the Rockies?!), or a full on destination wedding to escape the frigid winters and celebrate in a sunny beach paradise, I’m ready to fly.
