My name is Araka (pronounced like Erica).  Currently in Monterey, CA and based out of Augusta, GA,  I love to book weddings in both places I call home - and everywhere in between! When I'm not with my camera, you'll find me hanging out with my husband Nate and baby girl, Noelle. I enjoy long romantic walks down Target aisles with a Starbucks soy latte in hand and I can binge Bravo reality TV with the best of them! 

hello. I'm ARAKA.

welcome

TV period drama

I pull alot of my inspiration from period pieces like Downton Abbey, Secret Garden, or Outlander. What can I say, I'm a sucker for the country side and classic romance

Antiques

I love perusing antique stores and finding gems, like antique ring dishes from France. And I especially have a special soft spot for jadeite
