Meet Jailyn Untalan

hilton head photographer | Adventurer | dreamer 

Your new friend, here to celebrate your best moments, even if those are playing scrabble, eating Chick-Fil-A, or drinking prosecco on the beach.

I’m Jailyn, an adventure photographer on a mission to capture the authentic + carefree moments of beautiful relationships in uncommon places. 

It’s true that I have never been one to stay within the lines. Some might even call me an untamed woman with wild dreams. But when I look back over my life, it becomes apparent this is the path I was always on. 

It was only after serving 8 years in the Marine Corps that I set off on this adventure, forging a path in pursuit of my passion.

I am still inspired by everyday life and people, and the adventures we have together. 

The Unbeaten Path to Passion

Hi there!

An Adventure for the Ages

In 2017, Jailyn Untalan Photography was founded on the island of Oahu moved to Southern California and now in a permanent home of Beaufort, SC. No matter where we live, I have been fortunate enough to always be surrounded by breathtaking locales.
Available for travel worldwide!

In these places, I get to capture the creative styles and romantic escapades of adventurous souls and wild spirits

I’ve learned that getting to photograph relationships of all kinds brings together my skill, talent, and joy. 

I remain fascinated by the individuality and beauty of my clients. That’s why I’ll use your personality and feelings as the starting point for how your session flows and the types of images we create. 
I start at True North: who you are and who you love.

The Dreams of the Daring

Missing out on "joie de vivre" is one of my greatest fears, so I seek joy in every situation. For me, joy comes from family, photography, long beach days, and hikes into the mountains.

My goal for you is to capture the joy + beauty in your life for future generations because time is fleeting and memories are what matters most. I promise to do this with integrity and respect for your input. Working closely together ensures that we create your ideal images.

Whether you want me to create a dream photo shoot or capture the raw, organic moments of your elopement, I am up for the adventure.

"For a second session: Our beach session, I couldn’t stop smiling. Jailyn captured our silly girl in every single photo and I love the candid - ness of everything. It looks natural, happy, and again beautiful lighting/angles. Every single photo, we smiled and giggled looking at our daughter and that is just who she is 24/7. I’m sooo happy jailyn was able to capture her. ❤️”

Jailyn did a fabulous job on our photoshoot! We wanted a low-stress, relaxed experience that would give us great pictures and that’s exactly what Jailyn delivered. She took the time to get to know us and then guided us through the photo session so that it was fun and natural, not awkward. She was punctual, professional, and a warm, kind person. We are thrilled with the beach sunset photos we got! Highly recommend her.
