MEET ARIKA

OUR FAMILY

Andrey and I were married in 2015, and we just welcomed our sweet girl, Amelia, in February 2017. We also have four fur children, 2 cats (Binx & JT), a German Shepherd (Moose), and a Beagle (Rory). 

I have an obsession with Caramel Macchiatos, Kate Spade, Mermaids and Anthropologie.

Out in the country in a small lake house is where you'll find me, surrounded by my babies, a few dozen blankets and a jar of peanut butter.  

"I found the one whom my heart loves"

I fell in love with photography when I was just in 6th grade, capturing moments for my schools yearbook. In 9th grade I started shooting and developing my own film, by 16 I was studying studio photography. I was hooked, but decided to study something more practical in college. I never put my camera down though. I documented everything, including my first wedding and senior pictures for my fellow sorority sisters. There I was with a degree in History from Ohio State University (GO BUCKS) and all I wanted to do was photography. So that's exactly what I have done. 

I found my joy in capturing high school & college seniors, engagements and weddings! I love working with any couple, no matter their faith. I believe above all else that love is love, no matter who you are loving.

My husband and I met working at Starbucks. We both have a love of coffee and have quite the ridiculous drink orders!

I am a military kid, I grew up all across the country and that gave me a serious travel bug. I travel well and often!
