Spoiler: it’s me, hi. 

You deserve a photographer who actually cares

Let me show you how much I care.

Picking the right photographer is one of the hardest decisions when it comes to wedding planning - be picky. They will be the vendor that you spend the most time with, depend on in the most crucial moments, and trust with your most vulnerable moments. They should care about getting it right. 

let's chat

Hiiii! I’m Anika :)

Let’s get down to the intro - I know you’re just dying to hear all about ME ;)

Am I speaking your language?

I deeply care, not just about your photos, but about you.

Something about me that you need to know is that I have a fear of failure (hi childhood trauma lol). The thought of getting in trouble or disappointing someone makes my hands sweat. Making mistakes has never been an option for me. Yes, it is as exhausting as it sounds lol.

I plan, prep, research, communicate, and do anything I need to do to serve you, my clients. Being an empathetic person is a priority to me and I like to think I’m pretty good at reading people (maybe that’s just my psych degree talking hehe). SO, I promise I will always come to you with understanding, grace, and a lil humor.

When I decide to pursue something, I’m going to do it. There is no “try”, there is no “we’ll see.” I am going to do it. Full stop. End of conversation. I will not fail. Photography is no exception. When I say photography is the only option for me, it means I take my weddings & sessions seriously - because failure isn't an option in my mind.

 But, my fear of failure has served me in ~mysterious~ ways & YOU'RE GETTING THE BENEFITS

My death row last meal would include a margherita pizza. If it’s on any menu, I’m ordering it - they’re way too hard to come by. My “ick” is when a PIZZA place doesn’t have a margherita pizza…like???

I’m much more of a gorl than I am a girlie - I can’t explain what that exactly means, I just know it’s right, ya know?

I have a dog named Moes. She was a shelter baby and we’ve had her since she was a puppy. She’s certifiably insane and makes frequent appearances on my insta stories 

Me + planning trips = a serious match made in heaven!
I love planning vacations/trips. Give me a computer and a spreadsheet and I’ll HAPPILY plan your next vacay - seriously.

I love coffee in the worst ways. Someone pls take the coffee pot away from me, my heart is palpitating.

It’s cliche, but I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be a photographer. Especially not one who gets to travel the country, meeting the most amazing people, and telling the most compelling love stories. 

So, how did I get here?

My road to photography has been messy and sometimes disappointing, but also life changing (in the best way), and filled with so much love and passion. I’ve truly been obsessing over photography since I was 15 (which was a very long time ago). I made my friends model for me countless times and strong-armed them into letting me take their senior photos hehe. I took every photography class offered in high school, and then I took them again. After high school, I put down and picked back up my camera more times than I could count throughout college, but it never stuck. I wanted so badly to be a good photographer, but I was really critical of myself and my work to the point that I permanently (or so I thought) put it down for several years to come. But photography always nagged at me and one day I decided that I was sick of letting fear stop me from doing what I knew I was meant to do. I picked up my camera again and never looked back!
