THE GIRL BEHIND THE CAMERA

BEFORE YOU TRUST ME WITH ONE OF THE BIGGEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE, YOU SHOULD GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE MORE!

When I was fifteen, I started working at a bridal store - so you could say I've been in the wedding industry for awhile. I've seen just about everything so you can rest assured that I'm equipped to handle anything that happens on your wedding day! I absolutely love photographing weddings all around the world and odds are I probably already have my bags packed for my next adventure. 
I like to think of myself as the coolest third wheel - I love intentionally allowing space for my couples to be present in the moment and will never rush you out of something. I'm a type A personality through and through and thrive off of organization, coffee, & getting things done!

here's my story

before you let me tell your story, I should probably tell you mine!

01

I grew up in a small town in Iowa and have always loved the slow pace of small-town life. Ironically, I currently call Houston, Texas home, but have the privilege to travel back to Iowa + all over the world to tell love stories!

02

Ever since I was little, I loved the feel of a camera in my hands and getting to capture the beautiful things + moments around me. In high school, I would take pictures for a bridal boutique - things have definitely escalated from there!

03

It's hard to narrow this down, but my dream is to travel all over the world telling love stories beautifully + intentionally. I want to love + serve people in all that I do. Another dream of mine is to open up a coffee shop or wedding venue, but who knows!

where I'm from

how I started

my dreams

I love hanging with my amazing husband, Seth (more about us below!), working in coffee shops, or surrounded by nature - I've been to almost all of the national parks in the U.S. and I loveeee bringing my couples to them too!

05

I'm hanging with my friends + family, designing websites + anything creative, or eating wayyyy to much ice cream (currently blue bell but up for anything yummy!!).

04

I love the intimate moments of a wedding day. The bride getting ready with her ladies, the tear-filled first look, and the golden hour are my top three! I also love capturing all of the little moments + emotions not everyone sees too.

best part of a wedding

a little glimpse into my life

our love story

If you're into cheesy love stories, you might like this one ;) I'm always capturing other people's love stories, so it's probably time I tell you mine too. Seth and I first met when I was in 5th grade - he was in 7th. Immediately, I had the BIGGEST crush on him, but he was way too cool to even notice me (I don't blame him). That crush stayed HARD all through middle school. Eventually, we started to hang out a little more and I was friends with his brother. My freshman year, Seth happened to need a date to prom...and I just happened to be free. Next thing you know it, we dated all through high school, managed to date long distance through college, and finally got married in May of 2021.

In case ya need a little more cheese to this story,  I'll fill you in on the sappy stuff. Without Seth, you wouldn't be on my website today. He's the one who encouraged me to chase my photography dreams when I barely had the nerve to even speak my dreams out loud. He encouraged me to invest in myself, to dream about doing elopements, and continues to challenge me every day. I love capturing moments & love because I know how important it is to have my own story captured too. Moments with our favorite people in life are SO short - which is why as a photographer, I do everything possible to capture all of your moments & tell your story beautifully. Because love is special. 

>> I'M SOLD, CAPTURE MY STORY PLEASE!!!

She is so fun to work with, so easy going, and just overall great. Her style is amazing and she is so talented!...Alecca loves what she does and is on top of things. Not only that but she is super responsive and informative. Helped me with outfit choices, location, timing, we discussed weather ect and she even helped me with recommending a hotel for traveling there. She makes you feel at ease and confident with her work and will do just that. Not only that but i got sneaks that same night! "

I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH HER SKILLS, ENTHUSIASM, KNOWLEDGE, COMMUNICATION SKILLS, AND ATTENTIVENESS. AS THE YEAR WENT ON AND I PATIENTLY WAITED FOR HER TO PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING, I WATCHED HER SKILLS AND EAGERNESS GROW EVEN MORE! WELL, FINALLY MY WEDDING DAY CAME AND OF COURSE I HAD BIG EXPECTATIONS AS I WATCHED HER AMAZING WORK FROM AFAR AND LOVED HER SWEET, POSITIVE AND CHARMING ENERGY. ALECCA MET EVERY SINGLE EXPECTATION AND EXCEEDED EVEN MORE. SHE HAD A BOOK OF IDEAS TO MAKE MY BEACH WEDDING PHOTOS BEAUTIFUL. SHE TOOK TIME TO HEAR ME OUT AND ORGANIZE MY PICTURE VISIONS, BUT ALSO DO WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE SINCE SHE KNEW BETTER OF COURSE. IN SUMMARY, I GOT WHAT I WANTED AND SHE GOT WHAT SHE NEEDED TO CAPTURE IT ALL. SHE’S ALSO SUPER QUICK WHICH WE APPRECIATED- A QUICK SNAP SNAP AND WE GOT BEAUTIFUL STUFF! SHE GAVE ME PREVIEWS IN LESS THAN 24H WHICH IS THE BEST (AND WORST) TEASE CAUSE NOW I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT FOR THE REST!!! THEY WERE PERFECT! SHE ALSO CAME WITH AN “ASSISTANT” AKA: HER HUSBAND WHO WE ALSO LOVED. DURING THE PARTY, EVERY TIME I LOOKED FOR HER SHE WAS THERE WHILE ALSO BEING OUT OF THE WAY AND LETTING US DO OUR THING. SHE’S A NINJA!! OH AND SHE TRAVELED FROM TEXAS TO FL! SHE’S A TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHER AND FROM WHAT I GATHER, SHE LOVES TO TRAVEL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO CAPTURE YOUR BIG DAY. MY HUBBY AND I JUST LOVED ALECCA. I WILL UPDATE WHEN I GET THE FINAL STUFF BUT I AM 1000% SURE I’LL BE IMPRESSED
