Hi! that's me!
and most importantly, that's mimosa :)

Mimosa is my fuzzy little coworker and  right-hand man when it comes to running my business, editing wedding photos, painting pretty pictures, & brainstorming all the creativity i've got stored in this brain!

I've been the gal 'always holding a camera' for a long long time now, and i have owned Arastasia Photography since 2015! My career started off with just about every type of photography I could get my hands on, but these days I solely focus on the following:

wedding & engagement photography →
live wedding painting →
wedding videography →
maternity & newborn photography →


I truly love what I do in life, and I set out on a mission to help others get to that same place of happiness and fulfillment in their careers. This is one of the main reasons I wanted to hire other photographers and create a reputable team of passionate creatives that can shine in their work, do what they love, and give you unforgettable memories preserved in beautiful photos.

I hope you'll find what you're looking for here on my website, and please feel free to ask any questions!

I'm obsessed with my business, but ya know... in a good way. :) I've always had an entrepreneur sprit in me - dating back to the 5th grade when I got in trouble for trying to sell homemade goo-balls to my class during recess. (lol.)
I always knew I would grow up to be a photographer, but I definitely didn't know that my passions would develop the way they have, including, full time wedding photography, painting murals, live wedding painting, and inspiring other creatives to chase their dreams.

we gotcha! 
tap a flower, and reveal a surprise date night to do with your partner this week!

looking for some cute date night ideas?

grab a few different flavor options of your favorite drinks or snacks. (when I did this I did white claws of course lolol) You're going to take turns doing a blind taste test, guessing which flavor is in the cup. Of course, if you want to turn it up a knotch, you can prepare a cheese and cracker board to 'cleanse the pallet'

whoever gets the most guesses correct, wins a backrub and is on clean-up duty!

Get a pen and paper, and privately list out 10 songs you LOVED as a kid or teenager. Then, grab some snacks, make the couch extra cozy, and you're going to take turns watching the music videos of those songs. Let the nostalgic feelings flow and share memories or funny stories paired with those songs - let your partner into a world of yours before they knew you!

Spend 20 minutes making a playlist together of all the songs you both love. (maybe some wedding songs??) Then, gather notebook paper, a pen, and 2 jars. Write out 10 different love-related questions for your partner, then fold them up and place them in the jar. Put on your playlist, grab some drinks, and take turns picking a random question for your partner to answer. When you've finished the jar, write out 10 love notes for your partner to read on a different day or in a moment that they need a pick me up!

This one might be out of your comfort zone.. but that's okay, I believe in you! You're going to go to the thrift store with a budget of $15 for each person. Your partner is going to randomly pick out an outfit for you, and you'll pick out an outfit for them. No matter what the outfit is, you have to wear it! Get changed in the car or bathroom, and head out for a night of dinner & adventure. Bonus points if you close your eyes and pick the outfit, randomly landing on anything! (within budget of course!)

"Arastasia, I don’t even know where to begin. You’re the most genuine person I have ever met. You were such an amazing person to work with! You did our engagement photos IN THE RAIN and they still ended up perfect! Then our wedding photos/video, we have only seen the sneak peaks and I’m blown away! Just the sneak peak of our wedding video made me cry lol Seriously, you’re a blessing to work with. You made Matt and I feel so comfortable even though we are two of the most awkward people ever lol you have such an amazing gift and have such a creative ability to really show true love through a lens."

I wish I could give more stars. Arastasia did our engagement and wedding photos and we are so beyond thrilled with our final results. The pictures were my biggest priority for our wedding since those are what last a lifetime and Arastasia's work far exceeded my expectations. She is reliable, talented, honest, fairly priced, and one of the nicest human beings on the planet. The only complaint I have is now I have to try and NOT spend thousands on ordering prints lol

Choosing Arastasia Photography will be a decision you will NOT regret. I feel so lucky that we have such amazing photos to remember the best day of our lives.

Arastasia is THE most amazing, down to earth, fun and talented photographer/person I have ever met. She photographed my sisters wedding and she completely blew us away with the photos we have received already. She is so down to earth and fun to work with. Just a go with the flow kind of gal. It wasn’t just “okay stand here and pose” “don’t move” she wasn’t demanding at all. Whatever we felt comfortable with is what she shot. Even thought our group was super loud, rowdy and the guys didn’t listen very well, she still managed to get amazing photos... some pretty funny ones too! My sister, her husband, myself and everybody involved could not be happier with the way everything came out. My sister and her husband made the best choice by booking with Arastasia! You will NOT be disappointed when booking with her.

Arastasia took our engagement pictures which was the start of our friendship that we now have. Those pictures turned out so beautiful, I still look at them all the time! Then she captured our wedding day, and when I tell you I am blown away by our pictures, I mean it! Arastasia does incredible work, she also is the sweetest person to work with and makes everything so easy, she made our giant wedding party so comfortable the whole day. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, because of Arastasia. I would recommend her 1000x and more.
