You feel defeated in planning a wedding because people love telling you how your day should be -
 Instead of hearing how you want your day to actually be.
You need someone you just gets that fierce individual in you.
You don’t want to conform to society's norms. 

Fact is … getting married, being a parent to a special needs child, losing a parent, and coming out were all parts of my life that has helped make me a better photographer. 

you're a quirky couple!

unique

You know you want                    photos that aren’t awkward, time consuming, or don't look true to what your day actually looked like.

You’re                                                                                                                     know what you want.
SO why is finding a wedding photographer so freakin’ hard!?

"she is so calm, collected, & has the best energy! my friends & family still talk about her!"

—  Sarah and Ethan

"after meeting alicia, i just knew we had to have her. we picked our date around her availability!"

—  Kaytlynn and Nick

"i couldn't believe how comfortable we both felt. especially since we are really shy people."

It was 2014, when I was planning to marry my wife-to-be. I was thrilled, overwhelmed and felt incredibly lost not having my mom and best friend by my side.

At the time, my older brother had all the photographs of my mom and we were not speaking. Even my own family wouldn't give me a photo of my her.

As I walked down the aisle to greet my wife on my wedding day, my Mother's best friend surprised me with a framed portrait of my mother.

because it was my own wedding that made me understand the true value a portrait holds.

I started meraki portrait

I BAWLED.
I FELT SO MUCH PEACE SEEING HER THERE.
I FELT WHOLE.
