BUT FIRST, YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT YOUR PHOTOS WILL BE
BEFORE YOU TRUST YOUR STORY TO YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
You’re looking for a photographer who’s a friend, someone who can tag along on your wedding day and make celebrating your moment that much more special.
breathtaking, true to color and amazing
What if you found a photographer who could not only join your wedding dream team but also sprinkle her own brand of magic over your day so your experience is absolutely perfect on your wedding day and each moment leading up to it?
Then you’re DEFINITELY in the right place.
We’ll be seeing a lot of each other on your wedding day (and the days leading up to that special moment!). But don’t worry— we’ll be fast friends before you know it.
Though I started my business shooting high school & college seniors, I found my joy in wedding photography when my cousin asked me to capture his wedding day on the same weekend of my bridal shower. After I got married, I dove into wedding photography. Three mini-me’s and four years later, I’m still here capturing engagements and weddings professionally, both in Raleigh and across the world. And I cry at every. Single. One.
I place my relationships with my couples in the highest regard— not only do I take your wedding photos but don’t be surprised if I hold your veil and help you into your dress while I’m at it!
Two things you need to know about me: I take my job seriously but know how to make planning your wedding photos fun! I am constantly quotes random movies, and consider myself quite the stand up comedian behind my camera. And no matter who you love, love is love. I’m here to celebrate that with the both of you.
Also, I’ve lived in 8 states and traveled to 49 states (I'm coming for you Alaska!!!!), a passion that stems from growing up in a military family. I love all things nerdy, can quote every episode of How I Met Your Mother on repeat, and love a bright lipstick.
Whose that bubbly, energetic, talks so fast she could be a Gilmore Girl? oh that's me!
Hey there! I'mArika.
Your love story should be captured beautifully through true to life color, candid moments, along with the traditional poses that come with the day!
You deserve an experience on your wedding day and each moment leading up to it.
