A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT LOVES LIGHT, EMOTION AND THOSE SWEET, IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS.
WHO’S THAT GIRL? IT’S CANA!
I am most inspired by photos that are brimming with emotion. Photos that look like your favorite song lyric, reflecting the feeling on those perfectly imperfect days. Like when you both went to the beach and it was suppose to be sunny but it rained and you laughed together while snuggling into his jacket to keep warm, realizing that in his arms is where you feel most at home. There is so much deep beauty in the seemingly ordinary. But really, there is no ordinary. Because when you found him, when you found her, everything changed. Ordinary life transformed into an extraordinary adventure together.
I want to capture this very thing - this adventure you're on, this story you are creating together, hand in hand, side by side.
Hello! I’m 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 of becoming bff's with my couples. You've officially been warned! Most of my dear clients/friends would probably describe me as a laid back, creative, + free-spirited chick. I am based in Charleston, SC and absolutely love my city and have been photographing weddings for 8 years! If You happen to be getting married/eloping outside of the Charleston, SC area, definitely holler at me! I love to travel, so let's chat!
I am a free-spirited gal with an old soul and a slight obsession with dark chocolate. I am a mama to three sweet blue-eyed babes, Drew + Everett + Sullivan. 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.
