Meet Aaryn (left) & Anna (right)! They're the coolest, sweetest, most talented hype women you'll find! Both are Iowa-based wedding photographers and I am beyond thrilled they're apart of the ASP associate team!
So, what are associates?
Associate photographers are simply photographers on my team that have been trained under me to provide the same exact client experience that I personally do! Basically they show up on your wedding day (& engagement session if you choose that option!) and photograph it! I (Alecca) personally help with all the planning, timeline design, communication, & EDITING! That means that all your photos will match the style you see on the rest of my portfolio.
Anna is both a graphic designer & photographer and LOVES to combine her two passions. Her favorite part of a wedding day is sneaking the couple off to capture sunset portraits. Even if the sunset isn't there, this is the time couples feel allllll the feelings and she loves to document those sweet emotions! Her favorite part of any session is making people have FUN - belly laughs, feeling confident, & just becoming pals with the people in front of her camera are her JAM.
When she's not photographing couples or doing graphic design, she's hanging with her husband Garrett, her two kitties, Milo & Timmy, or doing a puzzle!
For any couple lucky enough to have Anna capture their day, you'll notice she's one of the sweetest, even-keeled, and creative people you've ever met!
In her words, Aaryn is a crazy cat lady, science nerd. & photography lover. She absolutely loves getting to meet so many cool people and creating art with them. Her favorite part of a wedding is definitely bride and groom portraits - she loves getting to spend time with the couples & celebrating them!
For any couple in front of her camera, you'll notice her bold, enthusiastic, & silly personality for sure! You'll undoubtedly be laughing the entire session & will instantly feel relaxed as she guides you through any session with her!
Aaryn loves freezing moments in time & loves being able to capture all the feels & moments!
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
