In the months leading up to the wedding, I’ll send you a detailed questionnaire to gather everything from which family photos you’d like taken, even down to any sticky family situations that you might just want me to be aware of. l'll craft a custom timeline so you where to be and when, so the day flows effortlessly and you can focus on what matters - each other!

"We are the Magic Makers,
and We are the
Dreamers of Dreams"
- JANINE & IAN
"Cassie put us completely at ease from the engagement shoot. Her ability to think on her feet, anticipate great shots, and work with your ideas is unparalleled. It really felt like hanging out with a friend rather than having a hired photographer around. If you want gorgeous and unique photos to remember your wedding day by you need to book Cassandra Daye Photography."
"Working with Cassie was one of the best parts of our wedding."
- AREEB & DIERDRE
“When I reached out to other photographers I definitely felt like I was just another number to them and they didn't care about the uniqueness that we were going for. It was great working with someone who not only has talent but still made us feel like we were special. Cassandra gave of the vibe that she was just as excited to be shooting our wedding as we were being in the wedding. I would highly recommend her because when its your special day you want a good person with a good energy to share it with you.”
"Cassandra was everything we could have asked for!"
- GABI & ALEX
“Cassandra was a gift. She is incredibly talented and overall just a wonderful person. Cassandra will bring calm, joy, direction, laughter, patience, and preserve your day better than your memory serves you. We hired her to capture our wedding, every guest she encountered truly enjoyed her presence. She made us laugh, she eased our nerves and fit right in like she was family."
"You will not only truly love her talent but appreciate her presence."
Curious about other couple’s experiences with me and my team? Check out their kind words here...
Being a creative entrepreneur can be tough, lonely, and overwelming - but it doesn’t have to be! When I first started I felt like I had all the ambition and vision, but wasn’t sure how to bring it to life. It seemed like no one wanted to give me a chance to learn and grow. I quickly realized that there were so many opportunities to make it happen for myself! I’m a firm believer in rising by lifting others, which is why I’m so passionate about coming alongside and teaching fellow photogs how to grow their businesses, reach their goals, and actually build a life & career they LOVE.
"I hope you see things that take your breath away, things that make you feel like you have never felt before. I hope you travel to the places you have always wanted to explore, I hope you catch the sunset at the perfect time on a random Tuesday drive and have your whole chest expand with gratitude. I hope the night sky is always beautiful wherever you rest your head.
I hope you drink good coffee and stay out late with someone who enlivens you. I hope your bones are tired and your hair is messy and your heart is full of nostalgia.
I hope someone who makes your whole damn face light up kisses you the way you have always wanted to be kissed, that they hold your hand and take care of you when you’re sick and bring you flowers just because.
I hope you fall so deeply in love with your life that your happiness is undeniable whenever someone looks at you. I hope your days are filled with people who inspire you, and that you always let them know just how rare they are, just how much you appreciate them.
I hope they do the same for you. I hope you connect with your moments, the ones that make you feel like you’re doing something right, the ones that happen quietly in the middle of a conversation when everything stops and you truly realize just how lucky you are to be alive.
I hope you are reminded every single day why you’re special. I hope you are reminded that you make people feel heard, that you make people feel understood and accepted.
- BIANCA SPARACINO
I hope you believe that — that you have purpose, that you’re a good person who deserves beautiful things and rich moments in life, that you mean something to someone.
But most of all, I hope you look back on this moment and smile. I hope it becomes the moment you leapt — the moment you started living."
