The Arp Experience

MY APPROACH

I believe that your Marriage matters more than your Wedding

and that my couples deserve to have a relationship that thrives!

It's a Lifetime Investment

YOUR LEGACY IS WORTH INVESTING IN

The wedding of your dreams is going to be here before you know it and WHOO what a VERY special day it will be! You've found your soul mate, the one you will spend the rest of your life with. You've been planning your big day for months now, you have anticipated every. single. moment. You said YES to that DRESS, you have those swoon-worthy decorations and those gorgeous flowers picked out with the most magical venue that sets the perfect backdrop for your love story.

What I want you to think about is this; when your day is all said and done, the decor you invested in will be gone, your wedding dress will be preserved, the tuxes will be returned, the flowers will die, the makeup will wipe away, but what you will have for the rest of FOREVER are beautiful photographs that you will look back on to relive one of the most amazing days in your life. Photographs that you will share with your future children (your legacy). Photographs of your Grandparents busting moves on the dance floor or of your Mother's tears as they help you get ready to walk the aisle. TRUE authentic moments of time captured to look back on timelessly and relive every single moment as it was artfully captured.

That's why I do this. To give YOU those moments.

I'm not going to be just another stranger vendor that arrives on your big day to stick my camera in your face and have you say cheese. I don't want to be just another item you check off your wedding planning to do list.

I'm going to be your friend.

I'm going to connect with you, get to know you as a couple and capture your truly unique love story.

I'm not about posing you in awkward prom like poses, I want to create moments that are raw, authentic and candidly you! The ones you will look back on and still feel the emotions, hear the laughter and relive for years to come.

From the dress to the shoes, to the quiet moments while getting ready, to the intimate first look and the family formals...every part of your wedding day is special and unique. No wedding is the same and I am constantly on my toes to capture every single sacred moment as it happens throughout your day.

Kind Words

"Probably one of the most difficult decisions we had to make in our wedding planning was selecting a photographer. Until we met Alycia. She was such a sweet and genuine person and her style was exactly what we were looking for. I knew right away she was the one! Prior to our wedding, we had the privilege of working with her not only for our engagement pictures but also with our family pictures. She is so talented and captures all of those little moments so well. She was an absolute joy to work with and having her around on the wedding day to capture all of our moments was truly like just having a friend or family member around. I can’t rave enough about her, we are so happy with our decision to select her as our photographer and look forward to many more years of her capturing memories for us. 

Thanks Alycia for everything!

You are awesome!"
