I'm Aleesha, and i'm so glad you're here!
I'm a portrait, lifestyle, and wedding photographer located in south central Wisconsin (but always up for an adventure.. wink wink!) While I offer a little bit of everything, working with couples is what really fuels my creative fire!!
When I'm not out preserving memories, you can typically find me at a cute coffee shop (with my face in my computer and an iced double espresso within arm's reach), out on an adventure with friends, or hanging out at home with my boyfriend spoiling our pup, Lambeau (named after the happiest place on earth)
I've been in love with everything about photos for as long as I can remember. The first Christmas gift I ever remember receiving was a bright red film camera - I don't think i've put down a camera since then. It's no surprise to any friends/family that this ended up being my career path! You know the old saying about working a job you love...
While it may have been obvious to my loved ones, I never planned on this hobby of mine turning into a business.. I'd be lying if I said I even knew that was a realistic option! I bought my first DSLR camera while I was in college studying social work. Friends slowly started asking me to capture for them, which snowballed into their friends asking me to capture for them, and just over 5 years later, I've built this into my full time career.
I can't help but to constantly want to preserve the moments I'm in. Nothing can take me back to a great memory like a photo can, and nothing makes me happier than bringing that same joy to others. I am so thankful every day for the opportunities this business has given me, the adventures it has sent me on, and the clients that have turned into friends.
If you're looking for a photographer whose goal is to be as professional as possible while still having the absolute BEST time during your sessions, or someone who is going to capture your true self and makes sure your personality shines through in your photos, feel free to reach out! You sound like my kind of person.
For my photography nerds - I shoot with a canon r6 as my main body, with the canon 7d mark ii as my back up body.
as the old saying goes "a picture is worth a thousand words"
