I have the awesome privilege of calling Aiken, South Carolina and Cumming, Georgia home! My goal as a wedding photographer is to capture the magic that your love is. My experiences have taught me that love is a verb. Weddings are about choosing to love someone every day for the rest of your life. You are promising to love someone for everything that they are and (more importantly) everything that they aren’t. And thats pretty darn magical! That magic is exactly what I want to capture.
Welcome friend - I’m Dailey! It is oh so wonderful to have you here!
So, I have a pretty cool job..I tell love stories for a living. If we’re being honest most days I wake up and feel pretty darn blown away that I get to call this passion of mine a job.
I’ve had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. Now, I’ll keep this short and sweet for you! I went off to college and received my B.S. in Biology. Shortly after I got pretty sick (don’t worry-I’m okay now)! I realized just how short life really is and how important it is that we live every day chasing our passions. And from there Dailey Alexandra Photography was born!
I absolutely love working with my couples. Honestly, I feel so blessed to meet each and every one of you. Helping to tell your unique story and document moments that will become your family heirlooms for years (and generations) to come is an absolute gift.
Who am I when I’m not immersed in these real life love stories?! I’m a girl that loves a good margarita. (Seriously, if you want to talk wedding timelines over tacos and margs…you’ve found ya girl)! I have a miniature dachshund, Sully, that LIVES to bark at the UPS man that is ever bringing me a seemingly endless string of Prime packages. (Anyone else need to join a Prime addicts anonymous class?) And an Irish Setter, Finn, that is probably the happiest soul you will ever meet. On any given night you can likely find my husband and I binging Game of Thrones or The Office. I love Disney churros, bath bombs and, of course, photography.
I constantly get asked what it is about photography that I love so much. Its simple really..it allows you to hold on to those precious, fleeting moments in life that you wish would never end. It allows you to capture not only a moment but a feeling. So tell me…what do you want to hold on to forever?
I cannot put into words how amazing Dailey is and how talented she is. From day one, Dailey and I hit it off as friends. As someone that does photography, I wanted someone that not only knew my style and knew what they were doing with a camera, but I wanted someone that I could connect with and that would hear my ideas for what I wanted in pictures for my wedding day. For 10 months, Dailey and I racked our brains to come up with the perfect fairytale pinterest-worthy pictures. A week before the wedding day, Hurricane Nate decided to appear. The day of the wedding came, bringing the strongest rain and wind. With all of the shots that we had planned to be outside, we felt a little discouraged. Then the idea of romantic/moodiness pictures came into play. I have to say, Dailey completely nailed it. She captured everything and more that I could have asked for on my wedding day. When life gives you rain, you make the best out of it and capture the most romantic pictures possible. Dailey is not only a photographer, she is a friend. I have recommended and will recommend Dailey to anyone that is looking for a photographer. Her work is amazing and she is such a great person to work with on any special occasion or event.
Anyone looking for a professional photographer to capture that special moment, need not looking any further than Dailey Alexandra photography. Dailey is one the most professional and talented photographers in the business. She was able to take ordinary backgrounds and turn them into absolute works of art. In meeting her you will quickly come to realize that you are not only dealing with a professional, but also a friend. In our first session with Dailey, she made my husband and I feel so comfortable, which in turn made our photos all the more special. Dailey, thank you for capturing our moments, you are a life-long friend.
I wish I could give Dailey a thousand stars! She 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 her about any ideas or questions and would always get back to me within a day and was always flexible for meeting up to discuss things face to face. 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!!
Dailey did the most wonderful job with our wedding day photos! We could not have asked for anything better. I currently live in Virginia and was not able to meet with Dailey prior to the day of the wedding, but she was fully prepared and made sure to find out exactly what we wanted. Dailey was sweet, patient, and so much fun to work with. She captured every single moment during the day so perfectly and the pictures are absolutely breathtaking. I will definitely be using her for all of my future photography needs, even though I live three states away!
Dailey is such a pleasure to work with! She has done our engagement and wedding photos and they are breathtaking! I was so worried with my personal appearance and she made me feel beautiful. She's professional and affordable. She's super easy to work with and talk to! I feel like the first time I met her we were long lost friends. She always has a smile on her face and is so creative. The clarity and creative streak in her is so fun to see in pictures and work with! She makes you feel comfortable and catches those moments in time you never want to forget! I cannot recommend her enough! We are most certainly using her for any other events in our life!
Having Dailey as our photographer was probably the smartest and easiest decision we made for our wedding; 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 kept us on our timeline, so as not to miss any major items on our big night for her to photograph. We cannot recommend her enough!
I told Ryan that one of the most important things to me for the wedding was the photographer and Dailey didn't disappoint. There's no way I could choose a favorite picture; they're all beautiful and each one perfectly captures what was going on that moment, I know we'll be able to remember this day for years to come. At the end of the day I felt like I'd made a friend instead of just hiring a professional photographer. She went absolutely above and beyond to make sure we were happy with everything. I can't wait to work with her in the future! Thank you so so so much Dailey!!!
Dailey has been a dream come true!!! She did both our engagement photos and wedding photos. She is easy to work with and is A+++++ when it come to quality! She listens to you and what you want but luckily for her, I didn't give her much guidance and let her creativity lead the way. NO regrets to this day! Dailey is now our go-to for all future mile stones and events!
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 pictures 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!!!
