Hi friends! I’m Alayna and I’m an international wedding and portrait photographer based in North Carolina and I am so happy you found me! I’m a hopeless romantic who is obsessed with my Pomeranian names Tito, big fluffy flowers, french macarons, and bacon cheese fries!
Alayna and her hubby, Casey, were such an amazing fit for us! We did our engagement and wedding photos through them! They made everything seem so easy and no pressure on either of us. Our pictures turned out amazingly! Wouldn?t think of using anyone else!
Booking Alayna as our photographer was truly the best decision we made throughout the wedding process! Not only is Alayna an amazing photographer, but she truly is a great friend and resource throughout the entire wedding process. She is so easy going and a joy to work with! She was constantly checking in (throughout our long engagement) and was so helpful. She was able to be with us for 10 hours on our wedding day (and a few hours at our rehearsal) and truly was able to captured so many beautiful moments! Alayna and her husband Casey were a joy to work with on our wedding day 🙂 I truly cannot recommend Alayna enough! Thank you for everything– you are the best!!!
Alayna is so talented! Me and my fiance loved our engagement photos! She makes the whole process so enjoyable! We are going to have a hard time choosing which photos we frame and use for our save the date!
I had such a wonderful experience with Alayna and Casey! They did both our engagement and wedding photos and they turned out beautiful! I also loved how throughout the whole experience I was never stressed and they helped make my wedding day flow perfectly. They were also extremely flexible when the plans changed a bit. Another thing I loved is they took so many group photos throughout the wedding which I will forever cherish those pictures. I would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect photographers for their special day!
Stop your searching and hire Alayna for your wedding season!! We can’t say enough wonderful things about her and her sweet husband Casey. My husband and I live in the DC area and wanted to capture cherry blossom season for our engagement photos. I was nervous about asking her to travel up for that, but she was so excited!! It was a cold March morning before sunrise when we met them at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, but they immediately got us laughing and having fun so we didn’t notice the cold and our session flew by. That’s the thing about working with Alayna and Casey – it is SO much fun!! If that?s not reason enough to hire them, let me tell you that even beyond great photography, they have an amazing way of listening. To your vision: Alayna has a wonderful eye and will always capture you and your surroundings in such a stunning way you would have never thought of. But she will still always ask you what you want and if there?s anything they missed. To your dynamic: as someone who feels hella awkward most of the time, I was worried about how I?d photograph. But Alayna and Casey encourage you to forget the camera is there and just focus on each other and the love that brought you here. Which is what makes her work so beautiful that it transports you back to that special day/season in your lives. And if you?re lucky enough to do an engagement session with them, she will remember which poses felt most natural and model you similarly on your wedding day. To your timeline: Weeks before wedding day arrives, Alayna will help you create a timeline for photography, which turns out to be very helpful in creating your personal wedding day timeline as well. She?ll take note of any specific shots you want and will even build in extra time so that if something goes wrong, you?ll still stay on schedule! And then there?s the great photography. For both our engagement and wedding photos, every photo is stunning and you can see the care she took both in the moment of taking the photo and after in the editing process. She has a sixth sense about when the light is most perfect ? if she asks to pull you away for a few minutes on wedding day, do it!! It?s because she has a vision for something amazing!! When you see your photos, there?s so much love. Love between you and your brand new spouse that you could never put into words. And love from Alayna too; she truly, truly loves what she does and it shows in the detail of her work and the care she gives her clients. We couldn?t be more thankful for our amazing photos and for Alayna and Casey, who we promise will feel like friends at the end of your wedding day. We love and miss them both!!
If there is one decision you can make right now to check something off your wedding to-do list, make it choosing Alayna as your photographer. She is not only supremely talented, she is an absolute joy to be around. Alayna and her second photographer, her sweet-as-can-be husband Casey, will feel like old friends to you five minutes into your engagement shoot. By the time they’re leaving on your wedding night, you’ll be racking your brain trying to figure out the next time you can spend time with them. Each photo Alayna captures is the perfect snapshot of a moment during one of the most important days of your life. It will transport you effortlessly back to that time and that place, back to the joy you were experiencing at that exact second. The most incredible part of it all is that she does it in a way that does not feel intrusive or staged. It’s like she can see the special moments before they happen, so she’s always ready to photograph them. When she does pose you, she does so in a way that feels natural to you, your partner, and your wedding party. It’s not just that it’s worth it in the end, it’s also fun while it’s happening. I will treasure our engagement photos and our wedding photos for the rest of my life. I will treasure our relationship with Alayna and Casey for just as long and will continue to feel grateful to them every time I look at one of these photos hanging on our wall. My husband and I both loved every detail of our wedding, but if we had to change it all, we could have done it save for two things: each other and Alayna as our photographer.
My favorite memory will forever be my wedding day. Alayna & Casey were able to capture that day and those memories flawlessly. They were easy to get in touch with (I still communicate with Alayna often, her and her husband have become friends of ours) and they were always on time & ready to get started. Recently, the two took pictures of our family (our dogs) and they were just as accommodating and amazing as they were on our wedding day! My husband and I could never convey how thankful we are to have been blessed with their talented work!
I am so glad we chose Alayna to capture our special day! She responds quickly and efficiently to all questions and concerns which helped put me at ease in such a stressful time planning a wedding. Alayna and her husband Casey are some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. As most of us know it is sometimes hard to make your husband feel comfortable while in front of a camera but they made us laugh and have fun while taking pictures for our engagement, wedding, and for my bridal portraits. These are just added bonuses to the amazing moments she captured for the best time of our lives. I highly recommend Alayna Kaye Photography!
Alayna and Casey are absolutely amazing! Not only are they ridiculously talented at what they do but they?re so sweet and so helpful! Our pictures were everything we wanted and more. They helped make our day so perfect!!!
Wow. Amazing. Organized. Timely. Creative. All words that come to mind when I think of Alayna Kaye Photography. We were first introduced to Alayna when she did my sister in laws wedding a year prior to our wedding. I knew right away I wanted her to photograph our wedding just based on meeting her. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met and makes sure you are comfortable with EVERYTHING. Not only does she help you with all of your photography needs, she offers you help and advice with ever other aspect that goes into planning a wedding. She was able to work around my schedule and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of despite the rainy weather we had. All I can say is trust her and let her do her thing and you will not be disappointed.
Alayna is so incredibly talented and you can tell that she loves what she does because it shows throughout all of her work. Alayna did my engagement photos, bridal portraits and my wedding and the photos are all absolutely STUNNING! Not only is she amazing at what she does, but she is such a pleasure to work with. She helped my husband and I feel comfortable through the whole process and helped us along the way with any concerns we had. She was always there to answer any questions we had and made everything feel like a breeze. She took the time to understand how we envisioned our wedding photos and the final result was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. I cannot recommend her enough for any occasion, you will cherish her photos forever!
The services that Alayna and Casey provide are unmatched by all the rest. A few months ago during our engagement photoshoot Jasmine and I quickly realized that with the right photographer, the feelings you experience in front of the camera can make a huge impact in the quality film you produce. Alayna has a way of making you feel comfortable, and completely natural. The preparation, attention to detail and pure talent of Alayna and Casey allow for high quality photographs and experiences no matter the occasion. We are thrilled with the experience we had the day of our wedding and are beyond excited to continually utilize this dynamic duo in the future for our maternity and family photos to come. Deeply thankful for the exceptional services Alayna Kaye Photography has provided us with thus far, and we HIGHLY recommend them to all those looking for an unparalleled experience!
Alayna was absolutely amazing to work with and the work she does is phenomenal! She made everyone in our bridal party and our families feel comfortable in front of the camera and caught some of the best highlights of the night. We couldn’t help but go through many different emotions as we viewed pictures from throughout our night. We can’t wait to get several of her photos printed to hang up in our house!
Alayna is so talented, kind, and easy to work with! Her and her husband did our engagement photos, my bridals, and they also perfectly captured our wedding day. All of these photos turned out so beautiful and I know we will treasure them forever. She?s amazing at what she does and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Alayna photographed our wedding on October 28, 2017 and did a phenomenal job. I get complements all the time on how well our wedding photos turned out. She was such a pleasure to work with, so professional, quick to respond to messages, always willing to give advice (especially during the wedding planning process), and went above and beyond to make sure our day was captured perfectly. I couldn’t have picked a better photographer!
Alayna did our engagement (Nov 2016) and wedding photos (June 2017) and did an absolutely fantastic job! She has so much experience in all aspects of wedding planning that she was a massive help in the planning of our big day. She made sure we didn’t forget anything! She has even done some family photos for us since then. I would HIGHLY recommend her!
Alayna is photographing my upcoming wedding next November and thus far her expertise and professionalism has been nothing but above par. She is always willing to answer questions and ensure that your experience is truly your own! Cannot wait to see what our pictures look like next year!
