An Aiken, SC photographer for the Southern bride that believes passion, elegance and happily ever afters go hand in hand.

I'm Dailey!

Hey, gorgeous

I’m Dailey. An Aiken, SC wedding photographer lucky enough to call my passion my day job. I spend most days sipping cold brew, chasing golden light, playing with ponies and capturing real life love stories.

I love yoga pants, bath bombs, Michael Scott, regaling my husband with my latest Taylor Swift theories, margs + queso, all things lavender, Voluspa candles (casa pacifica is life), that first sip of coffee in the morning and a really great happily ever after. 

I constantly get asked what it is about photography that I love so much. It’s simple really..I love the ability to hold on to those precious, fleeting moments in life that you wish would never end. Photos grant us the ability to capture not only a moment but also a feeling. So tell me…what do you want to hold on to forever? 

Come on in, pour yourself some cold brew and let's get to know each other!

I'm so happy you're here

welcome, friend! 

Let's chat about how we can make your day perfect and we'll make a plan together that will help everything run smoothly while still capturing all of your special moments like the first look, the first dance and the candid ones with your family and friends. 

Planning your wedding can be stressful, trust me, I know, but finding the perfect photographer is about to get really simple.

Lauren, bride

"She is not only a sweet and accommodating person to work with, but she takes some of the most breath-taking pictures we have ever seen. We often forgot that she was even there, yet she still kept us on our timeline, so as not to miss any major moments. We cannot recommend her enough!"

Having Dailey as our photographer was probably the smartest and easiest decision we made for our wedding!”

Rachel, bride

"Dailey is excellent in every way! She is experienced and professional and produces an amazing final product, but at the same time is genuine, caring, friendly, and kind-hearted. Dailey took my bridals, boudoir, and wedding day photos and we couldn't love them any more! We got the photos I've always dreamed of and I have a new friend in Aiken. I highly recommend contacting her for any event and we will 100% be using her in the future! Dailey, you're the BEST!!!"

We got the photos I’ve always dreamed of!

Liz, bride

"She beautifully captured not only our big day but our personalities as well. Photography is so important to me and I’m so excited to have these beautiful pictures to share with our children and grandchildren one day. She is truly worth every penny. I’m so glad we invested in her because what we got in return was priceless. Would book her again and again!!"

Dailey was so amazing to work with! When we first met her it was like talking to a friend.

Mallory, bride

"Dailey did our engagement and wedding photos and I'm soon planning on having her take maternity photos. That is saying A LOT. She is someone you just want to follow you around and document your life, because she is that good! As someone who is critical of photos of myself and a spouse that is super awkward in front of the camera, she has some sort of magic that makes it all work out."

She is someone you just want to follow you around and document your life.

Maria, bride

"To the woman who made all my wedding photography dreams come true, from the bottom of our hearts we thank you! Words cannot express what I feel when I look at our pictures. Dailey, you so beautifully captured our love, our faith, the fun, the beauty and the elegance of the day and I enjoyed working with you so much!"

The woman who made all my wedding photography dreams come true.

Rachael, bride

"Dailey was an absolute dream to work with! She did my wedding and boudoir photos and I honestly could not praise her enough. She made the day incredibly smooth and went with any sort of changes we had. She was always available for me to email about any ideas or questions. Dailey is literally the sweetest person ever and every single part of working with her was her was amazing! Dailey has a true passion for people and for photography and you can really tell in her work. She has an amazing eye for artistic shots and works so hard for the perfect picture. I HIGHLY recommend her for any sort of photography needs!!"

A true passion for people and photography
