I have been a                                                                 for 10 years! I am a big goof ball with a constant smile on my face. I started my photography journey at 16 while still in high school, spending any and all free time I had in the darkroom.  While attending the Fashion Institute of Technology, I focused on fashion and advertising photography. This gives my a unique perspective on weddings because I believe there are a lot of similarities between fashion, advertising and wedding photography. I much prefer to work for real people, and real emotions, not companies so choosing to photograph weddings was a no brainer.  While in school, I also worked for a few prominent wedding photography studios and after graduating immediately began my own wedding photography career. 

I have been married to my husband Stephen since 2016 and i'm also a mama of two crazy and beautiful girls. In my free time (if i get any) I enjoy playing board games or video games (yoshi is my personal favorite) and love going to Dave and Busters or bowling. 

I'm Alicia, and I'm
so glad you're here!

 When a couple invites Rachel & I to capture their wedding, we don't take that lightly. Speaking from personal experience, I know that after your wedding day is through, and years have gone by, your photos may be the only way to preserve the memory of the people you spent your time with.

Because I couldn't clone myself, and because Rachel was a bridesmaid in my wedding, I had to hire someone else to photograph my wedding in 2016. My expectations were NOT met, so I know what it feels like first hand to be disappointed in the product I received. Instead of sulking (which I did for a minute, don't get me wrong), I turned it into a learning experience about why our role in each wedding is so important. I'm not telling you all of this because I want you to feel bad for me.  I want you to know that, no matter what, we will show up for you in every way possible. We want you to have the best experience, because I know you deserve it!

That's me with my grandma, my mom & 1 of my 2 daughters

As a little girl, my mom had a plaque on
her wall that read "Be Yourself".  

Because of that sign, when I was a little girl, my
grandma would always tell me  "Be Yourself"

On many important days, she would call and simply
remind me of this phrase. This constant reminder
was key because I truly live by those words now.

For my own wedding day, my dress had these words
sewn into it by my mom because, for me it's now
more than a phrase. 

It is now also tattooed, in my grandma's handwriting
on my arm as a permanent reminder. 

I really can't wait to show you how easy it will be
to be yourself in your wedding photos, too!

When I say that I want you to

  
in your photos I mean
it from the heart

Be Yourself

I joined her company in 2012 and the rest is magical history! I got my start in photography at age 15 while also in high school as an equestrian photographer, traveling around the country photographing horse shows. After attending Dutchess Community college, I eventually changed my main focus to photographing weddings.

 I am definitely the silent type but will take charge when it's needed. I have a strong eye for detail so I keep Alicia in check to ensure we get the perfect shot.  

I have been married to my husband Mike since 2015 and I am a mama of one girl and two boys. I love thrifting, painting and all forms of crafting and art, especially working with resin!

I'm Rachel, and I'm Alicia's other half!

I have been a Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer for over 10 years. I used to shoot weddings on my own before meeting Alicia, but when we met through a mutual friend, I realized we made the perfect team.

"We hired Alicia for our September microwedding and it was the best decision we made! Both Alicia and Rachel are incredible. From the start, Alicia was extremely responsive and communicative. On our wedding day, she was prompt, professional and had a calm energy that made working with her a breeze. Most importantly, the photos were AMAZING. We couldn’t have been happier with them. Highly recommend"

"I cannot begin to tell you how pleased my husband and I were with Alicia. She was wonderful to work with, patient, responsive, transparent (no hidden fees/clauses) - and just so fun! She's bubbly, her personality is infectious. She made us feel extremely comfortable and cannot recommend her enough!"

"Alicia and Rachel were absolutely amazing! They shot our wedding in October 2019 and we could not have been happier. Their communication leading up to the big day was excellent and she always was able to put us at ease. We were able to iron out the details prior to the wedding day so when the time came, everything was efficient and we were able to capture all the moments we wanted. And above all, the pictures came out perfect! We could not have been happier. HIGHLY RECOMMEND."
