meet your wedding photographer + tissue-holder  + lifelong friend

hey friend, I'm alecca Synclair -

First off, MAN I am so stinkin' glad you're here. I know there are tons of other amazing wedding photographers out there so the fact that you're considering me BLOWS MY MIND. I don't take that lightly at all. 

I'm a firm believer that the important moments in life NEED to be captured in the most beautiful and intentional way. I'm also a firm believer in being personal - your wedding will not be "just a job" to me - it's a day worth celebrating and capturing! 

As a wedding photographer, it's my job to make sure my couples feel comfortable, confident, and most importantly - themselves. When I shoot a wedding day, I make sure I get the most important moments, especially the ones that might get missed in all the craziness of the day. From the first kiss to your grandparents holding hands, I'M HERE FOR IT. 

Again, thank you for considering me to document this sweet chapter. It means the world. Keep reading for a little more about me and my philosophy for your day!

"“"Alecca is truly the most one-of-kind, down to earth person that will make you feel like you’ve been friends forever...”

"I cannot emphasize how amazing it was to have Alecca (and her team) capture our wedding day. Not only was she the absolute best photographer, she is truly the most one-of-kind, down to earth person that will make you feel like you’ve been friends forever. Not only did she capture the most memorable and sentimental shots, she went above and beyond to capture even more that we will cherish forever. There is no doubt that she truly puts her whole heart into your day."

- Kiersten + Logan

My philosophy is to intentionally and candidly document the moments and memories you’ll treasure forever. On a day that’s filled with your favorite people, those moments with them deserve to be captured in a way that will stand the test of time. 

The images I capture from your day are going to bring all the memories flooding back every single time you open your wedding album or online gallery. 

You’ll not only have a photographer showing up on your to document your moments, but you’ll have a built in friend, advocate, and hype girl all in one. 

My philosophy for timelessly documenting your wedding day -

more than just photos

My  Photography Style

documentary, timeless, joy-filled

Seeking purity of moments, iconic dance floors, happy tears, giddy getting ready moments, and everything in between - because those are the moments that tell your forever story! 

When trusting me with your most important moments, you can be assured that I’m there to serve the heck out of you and your people and capture all the details of your day!
You deserve to be fully present for all the moments of your day and my style allows you to do just that! 

I document your wedding day through a mix of non-posed, storytelling, and timeless imagery so that when you receive your forever photos, they’ll be sure to capture your day exactly how it felt. 



If I'm going to get the honor of telling your story, it's only fair I share mine. So, a little bit about me -- I'm a twenty something old soul who adores spending hours on end in coffee shops, sipping on an iced vanilla latte or strawberry margaritas (depending on the time of day haha), spending time with loved ones, and hanging with my husband, Seth.  

When I'm not photographing weddings you can find me in the nearest coffee shop!

I truly wouldn't be a full time destination wedding photographer if it weren't for my 80 year old grandma, Jan! She was the first one to hand me a camera and has spent much of her life traveling the world, inviting people into life, building a beautiful family and community, and constantly on an adventure. Words don't do justice the impact she and my grandpa, the love of her life for over 50 years, have had on me and following my dream. 

the people that matter to me most - meet my Grandma (you'll lover her!!!)

I'm born and raised Iowan to the core (think sweet corn, midwest-nice, + small town living), but a move a few years ago to Houston turned me into a city girl! Now, my husband and I spend our time bouncing back and forth between the two states we consider home! (never too early to snowbird, right?! ;)). We have family in both states and wouldn't have spending time in both places any other way!

places I call home (and why that matters to you!)

Some of my favorite places I've traveled to have been...

   - Tulum, Mexico (the prettiest place)
   - Naxos, Greece (you HAVE to go!)
   - Positano, Italy
   - Moab, Utah
   - Glacier National Park, Montana

& so many more. I can thank my grandma for my love of travel and love getting to share photos (especially film) of my trips with her!

My favorite places I've traveled to are:

Let's be real - I LOVE a good wedding day jam + am a firm believer that allllll wedding days should have a dang good playlist bopping! Some of my go-to's (especially during couples portraits or golden hour) are anything Ben Rector or some old school like Frank Sinatra. But hey, I'd be lying if I said I haven't also jammed with my couples to T Pain or Fergie on a wedding day too haha. Because your day should also have your fave songs ;)

My favorite wedding day jams are: link to my Spotify playlist here!

I am not kidding when I say I am probably the worlds biggest baby when it comes to obsessing over your grandparents/any elderly couples on your wedding day. My grandparents were married over 50 years before my grandpa passed from pancreatic cancer. I think seeing love last through things as tough as that and watching my grandparents take care of each other was the hardest, yet most beautiful thing & it made me even more appreciative of love that lasts through generations. & that will always be worth documenting.

My favorite parts of a wedding day: Anything that involves grandparents in love

I have always been a believer in serving the heck out of any couple who chooses me and my team to document their days, and it is my greatest hope that anyone in front of our cameras feel so loved + seen. From capturing your grandparents on the dance floor (undoubtedly with tears in my eyes...sorry in advance) to anticipating the moments that you'll look back on for generations and being there to make sure I capture them perfectly, I will always be reminded that this job is the greatest gift. I know that sounds cheesy, but hear me out: The people we love are only here on this earth a finite number of days. So are we. Fortunately, someone along the way invented cameras and gave us a dang good way to pass on the stories of both us and the people we love to the next generation and then the next. Telling those stories is always and forever why my team and I do what we do - to bottle up those moments, the hugs, the tears, and giggly laughs and the secret smiles in a way that brings them back for generations. We're here to help your memories and love stories stand the test of time. It sounds like magic, doesn't it? ;)

Intentionally photographing the good old days - while we're in them! 

our team of intentional photographers here to document your best days + memories yet!

meet the associate team!

on days where I'm unavailable or slightly out of budget, you still have options! Basically how my associate team works: they've all been trained personally by me to photograph with a similar style + approach to wedding days! When booking an associate package, the associate you book will show up to your wedding day (+ engagement session when applicable!) to document your memories in the signature ASP style. Then, Alecca personally edits every photo of your gallery in her editing style. You get the same incredible experience and photo style, without being limited on Alecca's availability and while also saving a bit of $$! It's a win-win!

We've had the priviledge of having Anna on the associate team since we've started! To know Anna is to love her. She brings the calmest presence to your wedding day and serves ASP couples so well. She's married to her best friend, Garrett, and is also a cat mom to her adorable (and I say that as a not-cat person lol) kitties Milo + Timmy!
