    The best decision you’ll make for your wedding.

    Arika has taken photos of me at several major milestones in my life and no matter the setting, the outfit, the circumstance, or the way I felt about myself at the time, she has always made me feel beautiful, ethereal, and special. You walk away from a session with her feeling not like a client, but like a friend. A lot of photographers give you their time, but Arika truly gives you her heart in every phone call you have, every email she sends, and most importantly, every picture she captures. Her photos speak for themselves. You take a lot of financial risks on your wedding day, but Arika is not a risk - She is a guarantee you won’t regret.

    Stunning photos, amazing photographer!

    We absolutely adore Arika! In addition to being super talented, she is so kind, communicative, professional and patient. We have been going through our wedding photos, and continue to be blown away by her talent, and the ability to capture such genuine moments of our day. Her photos are very artistic, unique, and thoughtful. We have so many favorites, and are extremely happy with them all (and the online gallery is so organized and easy to use!) From our initial inquiry, Arika was always very responsive, answering any and all questions. We originally hired Arika for our wedding day only, but then decided a few months prior to do a micro engagement session. We thought it would be a good idea to meet Arika prior, and get a bit more comfortable in front of the camera. We knew the type of setting we wanted, and Arika picked the perfect spot. Not only did the photos all turn out beautiful, but we had a great time in the process, and she made us feel at ease. On our wedding day, Arika and Nick arrived early, set up all the detail shots we wanted, captured so many beautiful moments that we weren’t even aware of, got that golden hour just right, and truly fit right in with our family and friends. We highly recommend Arika to anyone and everyone. We cannot thank her enough!

    Angel on Our Wedding Day

    From the moment I first spoke with Arika on the phone, I felt at ease. She has such a comfortable and calming demeanor. This was so important to us in that we wanted to feel comfortable with the photographer, and know that our friends and family would be as well. Arika quickly understood the approach we wanted, she was flexible, and also very helpful with her suggestions. She captured so many amazing moments on our wedding day and her photos are beautiful. Thank you Arika for taking care of everything so flawlessly that day!
