My name is Araka (pronounced like Erica). Born and raised in Pittsburgh, now stationed in Augusta Georgia,  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.


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


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