Thank you for stopping by, I'm so happy you're here!
I'm honored that you're interested in Mink Photography for your most important day! Mink Photography offers years of experience, a BFA in Fine Art - specializing in Photography, multiple features in some of the most exclusive wedding blogs, and so much love for weddings! Whether you're planning a wedding in Southern California or a destination wedding worldwide, it would be an honor to serve you!
From booking to image delivery, my goal is to provide an experience that leaves you with a happy heart, stunning photographs and memories you will cherish for years to come. My heart sings in the key of naturally lit outdoor spaces or epic indoor venues with stunning light, and I leap at any chance to rush off to a desert elopement! Natural light is key to my style of photography and best for my preferred medium: film. But while I love film, I am a hybrid photographer, so I also incorporate digital shots into any wedding day.
The Mink Photography bride loves the elegance of lace, the dreamy romance of tulle, and all things flowing and romantic. She lives for untamed, wild florals and soft color palettes…but doesn’t fear the occasional bold pop of color. She is attentive to the details and infuses her personality into every moment of her wedding day.
I believe firmly in the essential connection between clients and their photographer. Through personal connections, I am able to tell your story in the most honest, authentic way. Comfort with your photographer brings down walls, allowing the real you to shine through. It also allows you to live in the moment, so I can capture it for you to treasure long after the wedding flowers fade.
I look forward to hearing your story and finding out if we make a good match!

THE WEDDING DAY
No matter how many weddings we photograph, we treat each one with the care and attention that we would treat my own, and embrace each as a unique expression of love. For intimate weddings, Alicia Mink commits to collaborating with couples on everything from their small details, floral color, and location ideas, preparing them for what to expect on the big day. Throughout the planning process, I make myself available to answer any questions or be a sounding board for ideas. It is of the highest importance to us that your experience from booking to flipping through your gorgeous, fine art, album is joyful, exceptional and stress free!
Q: What makes your work different from other photographers’ work?
A: In a world where anyone can pick up a camera, I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to receive a Bachelor’s of Fine Art with a specialization in Photography. I’m properly educated in the creative and technical aspects of fine art photography - this includes making sure that all of my images are consistent in editing and shooting style. I shoot in both traditional film format and the latest professional grade digital cameras & lenses. I absolutely adore the timeless feel of film, but love the speed and reliability of digital. My work is consistently featured in top weddings blogs such as Style Me Pretty, The Know, Green Wedding Shoes, Brides, and more!
Q: How long until we receive our photos after our wedding?
A: Please allow up to 9 weeks for a full wedding gallery and up to 4 weeks for a full engagement session gallery. Film has to be dropped off to the lab, developed, and scanned back to me which takes a lot of time. Once I receive the film scans I then start the process to matching the digital photographs with the film photographs which will give you a cohesive, beautiful, final gallery.
Q: How many photographers will be there at our wedding?
A: There will always be two photographers at full day weddings and for elopements it is only Alicia Mink.
Q: Will we get featured in a magazine or blog?
A: Although many of our shoots and weddings do get featured, this is not something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in colorful, uniquely designed weddings!
Q: How many photos will we receive in our final gallery?
A: This really varies depending on guest count, details, and hours booked. I do guarantee a minimum of 75 final, edited images per hour booked.
Q: Do I have to order prints through you?
A: I highly recommend ordering prints through my professional lab, but it is not required. The difference in quality is HUGE when it comes to ordering through a local printer and a professional lab, so we encourage clients to let us help with prints! Each collection comes with a print release.
Q: What equipment do you use?
A: We use all of the latest Nikon equipment, medium format film cameras, and 35 mm film cameras. All of our pieces have a backup in the rare event that anything should occur to one of our cameras or lenses.
