If you are reading this review then I’m so excited
If you are reading this review then I’m so excited for you for having found Red Maple Photography! Alicia is a super talented, genuine and all round awesome photographer! From the moment we first met her we clicked instantly and knew we had to have her for our big day! We’d totally recommend having the engagement shoot as it gave us chance to get used to being photographed and it was such a giggle hanging out! Alicia is so creative and is really one of a kind, if you want an extra special set of wedding photographs then you’ve found the woman for the job! Thanks again for everything over the last 18 months - Mr & Mrs Smith 😊

Great reviews from previous clients
We have gotten to use Alicia, Red Maple Photography, multiple times. We used her for our wedding photos, couple photos, and baby photos. She was fantastic. She is personable, creative, hard working and we loved the results of our photography session. She is constantly striving to improve her photos, give the customers exactly what they are looking for. She had great reviews from previous clients, which is why we hired her. We will definitely use her again when we are able to.

Phenomenal job at both of my friends weddings
Alicia did a phenomenal job at both of my friends weddings. She takes really beautiful photos and she is very personable. She puts people at ease, has a great sense of humour and is great at interacting with people of all ages. I can't recommend her enough. Thanks for the amazing photos.

WOW! Where do we begin?
Wow!! Where do we begin!? Alicia completely blew us away at our wedding last weekend. Her attitude and energy captivated our guests who all had to tell us how amazing they thought our photographer was. Alicia made us all feel at ease and went above and beyond all day (and night!) to ensure she got the perfect shots. We’ve had some sneak peaks through and are so in love with them all! We are now just clock watching until the rest come through. Cannot recommend Alicia highly enough, thank you so much!

Above and Beyond
Red maple photography went above and beyond for my family when we managed to plan a wedding within a few days because of personal reasons, the pictures and memories she captured, were amazing, and she caught all the moments through out the day of natural shots! And not to mention her lovely, kind, caring and passionate approach to photography! Thankyou so much, I would highly recommend! We now have a book full of beautiful photographs to cherish.

What is your most memorable wedding?

fun, fresh, adventurous, creative, romantic

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Email me with your plans I meet you (via Skype or Technology or some sort or old fashioned blind date fashion in a coffee shop!) Talk about how awesome your wedding will be and what you envision on the day Stay in touch via Insta, FB and emails Pre wedding shoot (if you want one) Continuous emails through the process to make sure I am up to date with your wedding plans Shoot your wedding Sneak peak or two or eight! Deliver wedding pictures Deliver album (if having) Stay in touch forever (you may need me later on in life!)

What about your business are you most proud of?

Head of the Queen's guards. A sea of red uniform who loved to P-A-R-T-Y

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

A view that has been passed down through the generations used. It has change shape and style over the years but it was to the point the bride had a piece of the lace made into a tie for her bouquet. I love sentiment (I told you I was a romantic at heart!)

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The 1:1 service I give to my clients. Each couple is unique and every wedding I photograph is special, so I work hard to achieve a look that shows off your wedding as you envision it. I only shoot a select set of weddings every year because my clients are that important to me.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A pair of Welly boots, umbrella and a positive attitude. Don't let the rain get you down! It's part of your wedding story. It may not feel "magical" on the day, but believe me, when you sit down to look through your pictures with your children some day, how wonderful it'll be to say "and it rained cats and dogs all day, but that just made it more magical.... and I got a wonderful pair of welly's out of it!" Just get wet!!! I have had couples dance in the middle of a hurricane, and it was an awesome picture and they laughed... oh how they laughed because it was magical! I have had couples standing with their horses in muddy fields with colourful umbrellas... the brides shoes now black but it didn't matter... because it was part of their day... Embrace it and don't let it get you down. We can make magic in the rain (or hide in doorways!)

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

6 guys naked in the shower with a sign - BEST photo ever and so much fun... we all kept it a secret from the girls all day (Groom was SO nervous about the day I suggested they get naked in the shower - didn't expect them to do it... don't worry - I didn't see anything I shouldn't have seen)

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

One picture with your parents. Things change. People change, but one picture that is always one that people say "I wish I had that" is one with your parents.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I have always loved photography and my dad used to be a photographer. I used to look at the pictures on our walls where I grew up and say "I'm going to do that one day". Now I have my own pictures on my walls and say "Now I do this!"

Describe how you got into photography.

Take time to enjoy the planning. Your wedding day will fly by... so soak it up. Love every moment and most importantly don't skimp on your photography. It is the only thing you have left to show for your day when the dress is ruined, the venue is gone and the cake eaten. Love your day. and BIGGEST ONE - Break in your wedding shoes BEFORE the day (you will love me forever for telling you this!)
