Hi, I'm Bailey
Owner + Lead Photog here at Aisles & Ivy
Let's be clear, I never saw myself ending up as a Wedding Photographer, or a business owner at that! Type A me is comfortable with security, predictability and consistency, and owning your own business is the farthest thing from that! My background is in advertising, but my husband encouraged me to leave my corporate 9-5 desk job and pursue a passion. Which is how I got here today.
I started out taking senior portraits, headshots, families…until one day the opportunity of shooting weddings came knocking at my door. I never saw myself as a wedding photographer, but I was surprised at how much I loved the thrill of the day. The adrenaline that pumps through you as you photograph the most special day for 2 people is something I quickly came to crave. There's nothing better than documenting a day a bride carefully orchestrated every detail for, where family + friends traveled from all over to be at and the main focus was to celebrate love instead of work deadlines and status updates.
I am a hardcore hopeless romantic. GIVE ME THE MUSHY GUSHY STUFF - THAT STUFF FUELS ME. Sappy me cries from behind my viewfinder during vows and father-daughter dances. Yeah, love is so awesome and getting to tangibly translate that love through photography is the highest honor for me.
Thank you for being here and congratulations on your engagement! I am eager to not only work beside you on your wedding day, but become a friend even after that day has passed. I am a wife, a mama to an adorable little girl and 3 furry pooches and hopefully your future photographer.
About My Work
Aisles + Ivy's work is organic and GMO free. ;) OK. I kid, I kid. Sort of. What I mean is that I'm not really the posey-posey photographer that tries to infuse unnatural elements into your day.
My approach is photojournalistic + candid. What I love? Dreamy, epic settings and finding the raw emotion in the day with couples who are madly, deeply and insanely in love!
Photography is special because it requires a relationship between the photographer and the subject. The better the relationship, the better the photos. My job is more than just taking photos, it's listening to you and understanding what is important to you, while also making the whole experience laid back and fun.
The objective is not to micro manage or take control of your day and force you to do anything. I want to experience the day with you as a friend, documenting everything that happens along the way.
I love people. I love documenting their joy. And creating photos that they can look back on and feel the joy from that day all over again.
