A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT LOVES LIGHT, EMOTION AND THOSE SWEET, IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS.
The First Thing You Should Know About Me Is How Important YOU Are To Me. I Love Building Relationships With My Clients. These Relationships Help Break Down Walls And Let Me Truly Make Authentic Portraits, That Tell Your Story.
Hello! My name is Cana (pronounced KAY-nuh). I have a big heart for people and a passion for authentic storytelling. Connection with my couples is so important to me, as I have found that those relationships help me photograph my clients' stories in a genuine and heartfelt way. I also kind of have a reputation for becoming best friends with my couples. Most of my dear clients/friends would probably describe me as laid back, diligent and fun (and super talkative!). I am based in Charleston, SC and absolutely love my city! Getting married/eloping outside of the Charleston, SC area? I love to travel, so let's chat!
I am a free spirited 27yr old with a old soul and a slight obsession with dark chocolate. I am a mama to two sweet blue-eyed babes, Drew (2yrs) + Everett (1yr). I am saved by Grace and thankful to the Lord everyday for his provision and unwavering faithfulness. When I am not out on an adventure with my camera, you can find me drinking a very large cup of coffee (or two), exploring our beautiful city, kickboxing (new found workout obsession!) or hanging out at home, snuggled up with the fam, watching the latest episode of "This is Us". I also love collaborating with other artists and am very passionate about building community over competition.
If I could sum up my style in 3 words it would be Soulful + Heartfelt + Whimsical. As I hope you can tell, I completely throw my heart and soul into my work. My photography is emotionally driven and my main desire is to capture your authentic love story, which truly lies in those unposed, fleeting, in-between moments. Relationships and connections are my top priority and capturing the "in-between" and unposed moments are at the very core of who I am as a photographer. I love working with couples who are are adventurous, laid back, and wildly in love!
I built this business with a heart to bless others. Being able to do that through building relationship with my clients and getting to capture some of the most important moments of their life, in return, has blessed me more than I could have ever imagined.
