About me

Hello All!

My name is Caylan (Vanaman) Awtrey, and I am so glad you stopped by!

I am a Wedding & Portrait Photographer with a Passion for what I do!

I currently live in Memphis, TN but I LOVE to travel!

I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for my faith, family, and friends.

I am a strong Christian, and I serve a mighty savior.

He has blessed me in more ways than I could have ever imagined.

I give God the glory for using my work to show people just how beautiful and unique he created them to be. It is an incredible blessing to be a part of the most important days of your life.

I was recently married March 8, 2014 to the love of my life! Being a “bride” has allowed me to see photography SO differently!

I truly understand the importance of memories!

I base my business on being trustworthy, honest, and fair, but most importantly.. on having fun!

I am all about family & friends….they are MY LIFE.

They have always loved me and supported me in everything I do!

I am also a proud Aunt to 4 precious babies!

I have always had a passion for cameras and taking pictures, but never would I have dreamed I would be where I am now.

I told my husband a few years ago that when I had a family of my own, I wanted a “big camera”…..not thinking I would actually get one for Christmas a few months later!!

Instantly, I fell in LOVE without having any idea what I was even doing, ha!

I was so blessed to have 2 amazing professional photographer friends come into my life and completely take me under their wings! They spent countless hours with me enduring all of my endless questions!

I have worked extremely hard to learn the complete ins and outs of everything there is to know about photography.

Photography has allowed me to meet so many incredible people from all walks of life, and build friendships that will last a lifetime.

 My main goal for every session is for you to relax, have fun, and to leave you with beautiful images that you will be able to cherish forever!

We recently decided to add a new assistant/ addition to our home! This little fluff ball is Nash! We are obsessed!


We are also currently renovating a home! To check out that madness, follow me on instagram @ cvawtrey

I am looking so forward to getting to know you and being a part of your special memories!
