    Anna was very kind and easy to work with. She was very easy to contact via phone or email, and the photos were released to us which was awesome. I was a bit disappointed with our wedding photos though. My main goal with hiring a photographer was to have someone pose us and take care of all things photo so I would not have to worry about it. However, I felt like I ended up stressing more about these things. When we were taking photos, Anna didn't pose us or offer suggestions for how to arrange, so we often ended up standing awkwardly not knowing what to do. Also, I spent a couple hours making a photo list and filling out a very specific questionnaire to make everything go smoothly, but I still had to scramble around trying to gather families for group photos on the actual wedding day. Overall, the photos turned out alright, some great, some not, but they are repetitive and lack creativity. For any engaged couple, I would recommend researching some poses, props and ideas you like in photos so that you can recreate or use them for inspiration regardless of who your photographer is.

About this pro

Anna Alethia stands out as a wedding photography and video business because we offer an exceptional experience, not just a person to show up with a camera. We take pride in our customer service and attention to detail. Also, this is Anna's main job, there's no day job, side job or mon-fri job. :) Our style is both Modern & Creative, and we take more candid photos than the traditional “posey” or “boring” photos. We offer posing suggestions and work with movement and capturing moments. But we’re always open to pinterest pose ideas. We travel up to 300 miles (one way) with no additional travel fees, and will travel to you for the engagement session (even out of state!). Anna Alethia also photographs high school seniors, families, children and pets in addition to wedding/engagement photos. First and foremost, I enjoy getting to know each client on a personal basis first before any images are taken. It makes for an exceptional experience for each client, whether portraiture or a wedding day. Being personable enhances the images and I can create something that is both gorgeous and special for each client. I get to showcase the client’s love story through my photos. :) Secondly, I love to hear my clients tell me that they feel beautiful after a photo session. I can work with anyone, so if you have insecurities about anything lets talk about it beforehand so I can work my magic on the day of. :)

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      1. Initial contact, most likely by email or phone. 2. setting up a date and time to either meet in person, or over facetime/skype etc. to discuss details, timeline, what to expect from me, details of the contract etc. 3. Client is sent a link with an electronic contract and invoice to pay deposit online. 4. Client reads through contract, contacts with any questions, signs contract and pays deposit at earliest convenience to reserve date. 5. We go from there as far as photographing/videographing the event, session, wedding etc. I go into great detail in the in person meetings as far as policies and expectations. No surprises here. :)
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      My dad taught me film photography long ago. I took a digital photography class in college to help me convert from film to digital work. CreativeLive is full of interesting webinars, and I've been to a few photography conferences. I read professional photographer magazines cover to cover and take notes.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      I work with customers from all walks of life. My favorite are the people who value photography & video and are willing to invest in it. Because at the end of the day, that's all you have left; Photos, videos and memories.
