Wedding and fashion photographer/artist Alicia Clifford uses her eye to produce imagery that is etheal, painterly, and dream-like with even ordinary locations. With a strong mix of heartfelt photojournalism and the ability to switch gears to creative fashion art portraiture quickly and easily on a wedding day, Alicia consistently creates pieces worthy of enlargement to adorn your home and celebrate your forever love.

Alicia Clifford uses her fine art education background and deep understanding of composition as well as technical photography "rules" to break those rules deliberately with mastery creating something extraordinary that can be found nowhere else. You may find Alicia using light in bold and unexpected ways producing dreamy lens rainbows from backlighting, graphic shadows, and geometric-shaped-sunflares to create compositions that stand out.

Unique and artistic brides and grooms tend to be drawn to Alicia's art and many exceptional photographers are among her clientele. Alicia has been in the wedding industry since age 17 (originally a ceremony harpist) and works very closely with her brides and grooms educating them about the flow of a wedding day, as well as providing many wedding resources and non-photography related wedding ideas/tips when requested. She loves to get to know her clients as individuals and friends which inspires her to "paint their portrait" with soul.

Alicia has packages and add-ons that provide sessions/coverage for:

-Day After Bride and Groom Art Session with optional "Trash the Dress"
-Destination ceremony locations (available for travel)
-Boudoir/lingerie
-Bridal Showers
-Bachelor and Bachelorette parties
-Rehearsal Dinners
-"Wedding Weekend" events

Wow, what can I say? Everyone in both families have made such glowing remarks with regard to you and your assistant, Angela. You were both so personable while maintaining such a low profile. We knew you were there prompting us for photographs but at the same time you seemed such a part of the family. All those hours of really hard work before the photo session, during the session, the ceremony and the reception looked outwardly to be effortless. You seemed to be just flowing with the events like the slight breeze that wafted through the garden periodically. You are gifted with the artist's eye for uniqueness in the every day. Emily so much appreciated your attentiveness to her and that you really "get" her vision. We all remarked on how amiable and approachable you were, and all that was combined with the patience of a saint. We felt that you were 100% focused on Emily and Jeremy's wedding. We never got the impression this was just another wedding in a long string of weddings. Your enthusiasm and jovial nature were evident throughout the entire day. Such an upbeat personality is contagious and helped to lighten the tension and bring us all closer together. We are looking forward with great anticipation to viewing your work!!!

I've always heard that your wedding day will be busy and fast. This was the reason why when I was searching for photographers, I wanted to know that I could trust my photographer to capture all the moments of the day. Alicia was perfect! The day came and she had everything under control. I had complete faith in her and trusted that all her shots were going to be great! She knew what to shoot and how she wanted it. Alicia is great because she loves to capture real moments. She never told me to smile, but that was because she knew the happiness I was feeling was going to show through the photos. She was absolutely right. I had a natural smile the whole day!!!! I was getting married! :) During our bride and groom shots, my groom even commented on how he loved our photographer pick. We both loved working her and can't wait to recommend her to our friends and family!!

Having photographed hundreds of weddings myself I had plenty of great options when it came to hiring a photographer for my own wedding. Taking the advice I’d dished out many times before I thought about what I really wanted in my photographs as well as the personality of a photographer I would want with me throughout my event.
Alicia was the perfect choice for both.
I wanted a handful of stunning images that could hang as art on the walls of our home and photojournalistic documentation of the rest to share with family and friends.
Personality was important because our wedding was small and included everyone staying together at a private estate on Oahu for three days. Alicia was professional when working yet comfortable staying with us and being a part of the family the rest of the week. She exceled at blending in and going with the flow – even when things were chaotic and way off course.
I wish I could give her 10 stars for everything but especially flexibility. I will forever be grateful that she was able to drop everything a week before our wedding and photograph an extra wedding in the hospital with my mom who was too sick to fly.
The images we received were breathtaking. I’ve joked my only regret is not factoring in the cost of expanding our house for more wall space into our wedding budget because there are so many I love and want to display.
They reflect the fact she’s a skilled artist and photographer and can make beautiful art anywhere. She’s got a gift for finding hidden beauty and an eye for composition that can take the mundane setting of a hospital lobby and transform it into the background for art. Now imagine unleashing those talents on a place like Hawaii and I’m sure you can see why we’re craving more wall space.

I wouldn't have had anyone else for our wedding day! I've heard nothing but praises about the beautiful job Alicia did on our photos, and she was such a joy to work with for both wedding and engagement sessions! I'm very much looking forward to having her for another event, and working with her in the wedding business!

As a wedding coordinator, Alicia is extremely easy to work with! I have done several events, wedding/styled photo-shoots with her and she makes my job easy! Loves to make sure the client is relaxed, yet keeps a professional attitude towards what she needs to get done. Not to mention her photos are SO gorgeous! I highly recommend her for any life-milestone event (engagement, wedding, trash/love the dress, and family photos). She absolutely loves her job and her photos speak for it!

My husband and I decided early on that a top notch photographer was something that we would not compromise on for our wedding day. I had been to several wedding shows and was not overly impressed by the quality/personalization/style of other photographers. I asked around and a good friend showed me Alicia's web page; I knew I wanted her to capture each special moment with her beautiful, artistic talent. I just had to have her. It was confirmed once we met for coffee to discuss visions of our wedding. Alicia is not only professional, hardworking, and incredibly talented with her art, but very intuitive and kind with working with clients needs. Our wedding and engagement photos are absolutely breathtaking. We receive complements on them all the time! I would, and most certainly do recommend Alicia Clifford's Photo Art to anyone looking for professional photography.

We worked with Alicia for our wedding in 2011 - after interviewing several photographers and feeling "iffy" about their work for the value and not feeling like we totally "clicked" with the photographer. A co-worker had referred me to Alicia after I saw some AMAZING maternity photos that she took. I contacted Alicia and was SO EXCITED when we met her and found that she was totally personable and still professional. She listened to what we needed / wanted and even gave us additional suggestions to consider even if we didn't choose her to do our photos. After meeting with her for an hour - I felt as if I'd known her for years! We are SO GLAD that we chose her to be a part of our special day! She did a boudoir shoot for us as well as our engagement and wedding photos. She did an AMAZING job! I have referred her to everyone for all services (even perfect strangers!) She does amazing work and adds personal touches that made it so much more - she truly has an eye for seeing the perfect angles!

Mrs. Clifford is a wonderful person. She takes great pride in her work. Works great with the families, was on time, dressed professionally. Has great ideas for pictures, she also did the engagement pictures, and captured who the bride and groom are and there interest. Was so impressed with her all around. The Bestman was so impressed with her. He booked her for his. engagement and wedding pictures. She is fabulous!

My fiance and I had an engagement photo session with Alicia after she had come highly recommended to us. She sent us a fairly lengthy questionnaire to fill out beforehand so she could get a good feel for the style of photos we were looking for. We took the time to fill it out because we were so excited to get some really great photos. Unfortunately, I think she barely read our answers. We are a carefree, fun-loving couple and all we wanted was some fun photos with big smiles - after all, we were so happy to be engaged!! However, that is not Alicia's style at all. We took a lot of photos during our session, and while we were smiling in some of them, many of them were extremely carefully posed, "look into each other's eyes", serious or artsy photos. We didn't think much of it at the time, because we were under the impression that we would get to see all the photos and choose ourselves which ones we would get with our package (I believe our package came with 12 photos). That was not the case. Alicia chose the photos that we got, and there was only one that we even remotely liked. The others were serious-looking photos which were not at all our style and did not represent us as a couple. I wish she would have asked us at the end of the session if there were any particular photos or poses that we would definitely want to have. She would only let us see more photos if we paid to upgrade our package. If you like very artsy photos then Alicia might be a good fit for you, but if you are just looking for normal, fun photos then I would go elsewhere. We did another engagement session with another photographer and the pictures came out great. Alicia is a very sweet person, but unfortunately our session with her was a complete waste of our time and money.
