Hey there guys! I'm Aly Barnett! Most days you can find me wearing black leggings, in a yoga class, listening to my favorite podcast, and cooking. I am mostly known for my red hair, and my non-stop talking. I love serving the world by documenting what is in front of me. The things I am most passionate about in life are traveling, my fur baby, Sophie, nailing down crow pose, finding a new hard cider to try, road trips with my wonderful boyfriend, and teaching other photographers. A little bit more about me, I am from Charlotte, North Carolina and graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design with my BFA in (yes) Photography in 2015. I currently shoot weddings, elopements, engagements, and portraits. Being a freelancer is a full-time job, and hard work y'all! I am hoping to get my Masters degree in Photography and becoming a professor. Maybe even a Yoga Instructor!My boyfriend Sam and I met almost 3 years ago on Tinder. Yes Tinder! He is a High School History teacher and I cannot tell you how much fun our life has been! From traveling to England, Adopting Sophie, and drinking all the beer/cider in Asheville!

We all know photography for your wedding day is SO important! But I believe it's more than just showing up and taking some photos. I actually have a relationship with my couples! I know, most of you might not think that is not important. To me it is! I am able to serve you better if I know what kind of person you are. Are you an introvert while your partner is a goofball? WONDERFUL! Are both of you super close to your family and only want them at your ceremony? PERFECT! I believe weddings should be personal and who you are! Not a ballroom kinda person? Cool me either!

Working with me is so much different than hiring your friend that has photography as a hobby or someone in a big company who just shows up. I am the photographer who help you with all the questions you have with you, meets 1 month before your big day to check in, tears up at your ceremony, and hugs you at the end of your day. I make sure I understand why you love each other, why you chose your ceremony & reception location, and why you decide to hire me. I believe your wedding day should represent your relationship as a whole! You want to get married in the mountains? Hell yeah! On the beach? LETS GET YOU MARRIED

a closer look at

Sipping chartreuse and green tea while looking at the most perfect white subway tile and hand painted signs. Driving through the mountains to Portland reminiscing about the best memories back home. Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls. Dreamcatchers, macrame and 100 Days of Summer. Anthropologie trips and walks on the beach, love letters and secret admirers. Fall breeze, flannels, and hot cocoa. Whales and dinosaurs and handmade crafts. Salvage denim, antique leather bags, and the first time we watched Moonrise Kingdom. 

The slow hum of traffic and the cool breeze that signify the joy of a new day.
