I'M ALICIA, A FINE ART, HYBRID WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
When I walked into my first film photography class at Wright State University in 2009, I could never have imagined the remarkable journey that was about to begin. From my hometown of Dayton, OH, to the sunny shores of Orange County, CA, my camera was a one-way ticket to a life of art and adventure. With a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in Photography and an eye for the magic of colors and light, I began my wedding photography business in 2014. Since then, my work has been featured on top wedding sites such as Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Inspired By This, BRIDES and more!
I am a hybrid photographer, meaning I shoot both digital and film. It may be surprising to learn that in the age of instant digital photography, some photographers still choose to go it the old fashioned way, but I have always valued the timeless look of film and the colors it produces. My style of photography is one that celebrates the naturalness of purely unique, unrepeatable moments. Rather than relying on tired, overused poses, I encourage my couples to move intuitively and be themselves in front of the camera.
Each couple I work with inspires me in different ways, pushing me to new heights. I believe that the trust between photographer and subject, as the two coauthor a story through images captured, is what this art form is all about.
