Alicia Oblander is a phenomenal photographer! My wedding took place many states away from where I live and I was coordinating across multiple time zones. Alicia was easy to communicate with and answered all my questions. We had a small intimate wedding and I wanted to have the... Read More ceremony at sunset. Alicia took this on and impressed me with how quickly and comfortably she handled the changing light and the challenge of shooting family portraits (including a two-year old!). Alicia captured genuinely beautiful moments for me and my family. What I appreciated most is that she put everyone at ease which allowed us to be ourselves. We received gorgeous pictures that we will cherish forever. She is a true professional and I would not hesitate to hire her again. -Ariela

Alicia was so nice and professional. The photos she took are all excellent, and me and my husband are some of the most unphotogenic people ever, so that's really saying something. During the ceremony we completely forgot she was there because she was so unobtrusive, and we still... Read More got really good shots! She was very easy to get in touch with and communicate with, provided clear pricing with multiple options to get exactly what we wanted, and was overall fantastic to work with.

What can I say, Alicia is amazing. Not only is she incredibly easy to work with, her attention to detail really shows through in the results. We had her photograph our wedding and take some shots of us getting our marriage license. I could not be happier! She managed to capture... Read More the day beautifully. Our wedding video was brilliant as well. She was patient as I asked her to tweak certain things over and over, and even after that she did a little extra work to make sure we had the best video possible. The time she took to perfect it was well worth the effort because our video looks like a short film about some cool people in love, how she managed to make us look that good I'll never know lol. But working with Alicica was one of the best choices we made during the process!
