01 About Graphic.png

Hi! I’m Alicia

a fine art wedding photographer living in sunny Southern California. My photography journey began nearly a decade ago and thousands of miles away in my hometown of Dayton, OH, where I studied fine art photography. I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and promptly moved across the country to Orange County, CA, with my husband, our daughter and our family dog, Stella.

In late 2015 I began photographing weddings full time. Since then I’ve grown from a dream of launching a photography business to being featured on top wedding sites like PEOPLE, Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings and many more! But best of all, I’ve met so many incredible couples that trust me to document their most precious moments.

When I’m not editing away on my latest gallery filled with once in a lifetime moments or snapping pictures of "I do"s, you can find me snuggling up with the fam for a movie night at home, digging my toes in the sand at the beach or spending time helping other photographers reach their fullest potential by hosting workshops for our photography community!

THE KNOT

 

 

THE CREATOR

I am what’s known as a hybrid photographer, meaning I shoot with both film and digital mediums. With the timeless, painterly quality unique to film and the reliability and immediacy of the digital medium, I can deliver the best of both worlds for my clients. While I do shoot with both mediums, film plays a major role in my process. Film has allowed me to slow down and become more involved with my couples, waiting for perfect moments rather than snapping away hoping to catch a great image by chance. My ultimate goal is to capture your moments in the most authentic way so that you will cherish and relive them for years to come and pass them on for generations.

I want to tell your story through beautiful imagery, make you feel like family, and most of all, hear every detail you have planned for your most important day!

How would you describe your particular style?

A: My style is joyful, timeless, and romantic. My couples will look back at their images in 30 years and relive the moments as they were and remember how it all looked. I tend to stay away from stiff posing and over processing the images and really focus on interactions, moments, and true colors.

How far in advance should I book your services and how do we book?

A: I suggest 6-12 months in advance, or as soon as you know the your date and venue. I accept a limited number of weddings each year to provide my couples with the best care attention. To officially book your date I require a 50% retainer and signed contract.

 

How do you prep your couples for a wonderful experience?

A: With each of my couples there are steps I take to ensure that the photography will run smoothly - this way you can relax and enjoy your day while we capture it all! Everything from engagement session tips, wedding tips, questionnaires, and unlimited communication are part of my process to ensure a smooth, stress free photography experience!

Where are you based and do you travel?

A: I am based in Orange County, California! However, I have many weddings (and family!) in Northern California and shoot there frequently as well. If you’re planning a destination wedding, please don’t hesitate to inquire, there are so many places I dream of photographing!
