1 // 5 stars and all smiles when I think of Cana. A top priority for my wedding was finding a photographer that I loved and trusted both personally and professionally . When I met Cana, I knew she would be a perfect part of our wedding experience with her calming spirit and beautiful portfolio, all while remaining within our budget. The perfect mix of professionalism and artistry, Cana captured gorgeous romantic photos. She gave us everything we wanted and more, and now we can reminisce on our wedding season with absolutely breathtaking photographs! Needless to say, we highly recommend Cana For your photography! - GIBBON + BRYAN
2 // Cana was one of the first wedding vendors I booked. After our first meeting, I looked no further and booked her immediately. As our wedding day got closer I was unable to spend as much time on the wedding planning process as I would have liked due to a change in careers. The day of the wedding came and Cana was there to capture the girls and I getting ready. Our wedding was at my parents home in downtown Charleston. There were so many small details and family heirlooms incorporated in the big day. The theme of our wedding was a Charleston garden tea party. It had some modern twist to a very classic, traditional throwback. I had an image in my mind of how I wanted the day and the pictures to turn out and was so very nervous that a photographer would not be able to capture that vision. We are not ones for wanting a lot of formal family photos. We wanted a few of the wedding party and with our parents but in a more, fun casual atmosphere. We received our sneak peek a few weeks ago, and could not be more thrilled. In a conversation post wedding my husband made a comment that he did know how the photos would turn out because he felt like he didn't see Cana a lot. Well as the sneak peek proved Cana did an amazing job and it was like she was invisible catching all of these amazing moments some of which we didn't even remember because the day was filled with so much activity. The idea that someone can come in and capture everything I was thinking and more, be such an integrative part of the day while at the same time not overly intrusive is more than you can ever ask for in a photographer. When we saw the sneak peek my husband and my dad both who don't get to excited about things like pictures, could not stop talking about how amazing they were. I was really hoping for lots of candid in the moment photos and Cana captured those moments flawlessly. Cana, thank you for all you did to help make our day so special!

3 // From her first email in response to my inquiry, Cana was nothing but sweet, flexible and professional. We're from out of state, and being new to South Carolina, we trusted her to take us to the best spots in Charleston for our engagement photos - both downtown and a nearby marsh. When the weather forecast started to turn, she immediately reached out to us with a backup plan (fortunately the weather held off!). I love how she utilizes natural light and focuses on the candid shots between shots. She made my fiancee and I feel SO comfortable - something we were both a bit nervous about. We both walked away from the session smiling and eager to see our photos. They are beautiful, thoughtful, natural and capture who we are together. I HIGHLY recommend Cana for your photos if you're looking for a genuine, talented and artistic photographer!
4 // I cried the first time I saw all of our wedding photos and I continue to be speechless. Cana McDonald of Whimsey Photography far surpassed anything we could have imagined to capture our wedding day! I am able to re-live our special day through her photos. Our wedding was truly so special and magical and I can feel it all through her work. Tim Beechem and I are forever grateful for her heart and talent in providing these memories that will last forever. Cana is a true artist and professional. I cannot imagine recommending anyone else for your wedding photography. - Vanessa + Tim Beechem
5 // I highly recommend Whimsey Photography! I found Whimsey for the first time somehow by stumbling across a photo on Facebook, and when I got engaged, my now-husband suggested that I look into using her as our photographer. I contacted her and set up an engagement shoot. Cana and I hit it off from day 1. She also photographed our wedding, and I am so happy to say that I hired someone that I could rely on to be professional, amazingly talented and creative, but also someone I felt comfortable with as a friend. I am happy to say I not only have tons of AMAZINGLY whimsey-worthy photos, but I also gained a cherished friend. Use her as your photographer - you'll be glad you did! - Rian + Jionte Fuller
6 // Cana photographed our wedding in Charleston last month and we haven't stopped looking at the pictures since we got home!! Being from Kentucky, we were worried about finding the perfect photographer just by looking online. Then it happened...I found Cana!! She asked all the right questions to ensure that she captured every single picture we had ever dreamed of. She was amazing to work with and is extremely talented!! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, and am so lucky to have found her all the way from Kentucky! Look no further, hire her immediately!!! Not only is she extremely talented, but she is also the most wonderful person you will ever meet! She worked so hard capturing pictures of our group all night long, and I am so thankful to have found her. I can't wait to plan another trip to Charleston and schedule another session with her!! She truly is the very best you will find!! - Lauren G.
