“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”. - Elliott Erwit
"Alicia exceeded all our expectations! If you are looking for someone to capture the true essence of your wedding day look no further! She took the time to meet us at our venue before the wedding to find the best places to shoot, which in turn made the day run smoothly. In a day full of chaos Alicia made us feel at ease, relaxed and natural. Our pictures are stunning, and really captured who we were as a couple! I can't recommend anyone else to capture one of the most important days of your life!"
"Alicia blew our engagement photos out of the water! We wanted something different, nontraditional, and fun; and our session was all of those things. She made us feel comfortable and really brought my fiancé out of his shell. She captured real moments for us. We shot in Casper Park and the outcome was breath taking."
"First off I want to say that Alicia was by far our favorite vendor that we worked with during our wedding back in March 2015. And trust me, we had a lot of great vendors. So when I say that ish it means this one goes ABOVE & BEYOND folks. Alicia is so friendly, funny and easy going all while being extremely calm and professional, kinda like a fighter pilot. We really did feel a sense of comfort when shooting with Alicia and at the same time like we were just hanging out with a good friend. She is our friendographer. 4life. Every shot from our engagement shoot all the way to the wedding, Alicia shot with the intention to capture the look, feel and location that WE wanted. She really took the time to understand what/who and where we wanted shots on the day of the wedding and it showed. I clearly remember during all the mix of the wedding day seeing her, she was so on point and showing no signs of pressure, moving us from one location to the next, swapping out the family members for the bridal party, shooting the entire time, all the while never breakin a sweat or raising her voice or nothing. And then, all of a sudden the wedding was over, and in what seemed like 2 days she was already sending us our photos in waves. I thought it'd be weeks to months but I was literally sending family photos the following week. It was really great because everyone was so excited still and happy to get the photos. She really slam dunked it and we couldn't be happier. Seriously, if you are looking for any type of photography you've come to the right place because Alicia is the right person. The photos aren't just the amazing part, you really will enjoy working with her and becoming friends."
"Alicia is AMAZING! Not only is she a phenomenal photographer, she is such a bright and bubbly person. It's obvious she truly cares about not only the quality of her work, but the people she works with! She was always quick to respond, and even helped me find an amazing florist (Meri Wagner) at the last minute. I would recommend Mink Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. My photos were beautiful, and she had them to me within two weeks of my wedding. Alicia, thank you so much for capturing a lifetime of memories!"
"Alicia was the best photographer we could have asked for. She made us feel so comfortable at both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She knew exactly what to do in every situation, and got the perfect mix of formal and candid shots. The pictures we got back from her aregorgeous. Photography was the most important thing for us and we could not be happier! Alicia, you are truly the best!!"
"Alicia was absolutely AMAZING. She took me and my fiance's engagement photos in Temecula and they were unbelievable. I wish I could take her back to VA with me to take our wedding pictures! Alicia made the whole experience so enjoyable and fun. My fiance and I were both a little nervous about the session just because we didn't know what to expect but Alicia made us feel so comfortable and we had a blast. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!! You will not be disappointed!"
"We used Mink Photography for both our engagement and wedding day photos. Both time turned out great and beyond our expectation. The photos are gorgeous and Alicia is a true artist in capturing all the special moments. Alicia is very down to earth and really easy tocommunicate with. She's super fast at email responding which is a big plus. She listens to the type of shots we want and also gave really good suggestions. Her price is very reasonable. You get high quality photos without breaking the bank. How awesome can it get? We would definitely work with her again on future special events and would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a great photographer."
“The photo shoot was so relaxing and fun. Alicia didn't waste anytime between shots to make sure we took advantage of every minute of our shoot and made sure we had a large variety or angles and scenery. Amazing!”
