Hi, I am Alicia, owner and primary photographer for Pure Emotions Photography.

If you want more information, please call me at one of the two phone numbers listed above, email me directly at PureEmotionsPhotography@gmail.com or visit my website at www.PureEmotionsPhotography.com and click the contact me button.

Our style is a bit different from many other photographers. We are professional photographers who are humbled by the opportunity to be invited to share in such amazing moments in 2 peoples lives. Our style is a little outside the box. I have a very artistic eye and I love using dramatic angles. My editing techniques are a huge part of our style and vision. I see things as a finished result in my mind when I shoot them. I already know if I am going to want to turn a photo into a vibrant colorful picture or a contrasty black and white image.

The most important thing though is that I shoot weddings because I love the age old ideals that two people can fall in love and spend eternity together. I believe in the "Happily Ever After". I love being around people who are in love. When I shoot two people as they stand before one another, moments before becoming wed and profess their love to one another through their undying vows, it gives me goosebumps every time. I shoot weddings because it’s my calling. It’s a gift I was naturally blessed with and I embrace that gift. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I edit every photograph from the wedding. Editing skills include but are not limited to; contrasty black & whites, retouching skin, color corrections, vibrant colors, artistic enhancements, etc.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
All lighting conditions from bright sun to complete darkness.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We shoot digital only.
How many photographers do you work with?
2.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I will always be the primary photographer.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never. I only take 2-3 weddings per month so I can devote 40-60 hours editing every wedding and paying the same attention to detail.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of photographers I can contact to see if they are available. I've never had to do so though and I hope I never do.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We shoot with professional grade Canon equipment. We bring cameras, lenses, strobe lights, external flashes, tons of memory cards, extra batteries, flash modification devices to change the lighting, tripod, flash meter, etc. We have a wide array of lenses from wide angle to telephoto.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely. Wouldn't leave home without it.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I charge based on a package rate depending on the clients needs. A certain amount of hours is covered in that package.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Anything over the covered amount of hours is billed at a rate of $100.00 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Breaks? What are those? :-)
Do you charge for travel?
It depends on the package that is booked but we do not charge for travel within our local area.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
For DVD packages, there are not any proofs. I edit every single picture before the clients ever see them. Then, they get all the photos on DVD in high resolution with printing rights once the photos are edited. This process normally takes 2-4 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
See above.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
See above.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, all images are copyright protected by Pure Emotions Photography.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
I provide the edited digital files once they are completed, depending on the package booked.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. For 90 days, your images will be in a password protected gallery on my website. Photos can be viewed and ordered directly from that personal gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I currently offer a coffee table AsukaBook Album as well as a Flushmount Graphistudios Album.
When will the client get the final album?
This depends on the manufacturer and how long it takes them and varies depending on season.

Pure Emotions Photography! Where do I begin? Alicia & Latanya have become more than just my wedding photographers, they've become friends. I constantly find myself on the phone with Alicia for hours discussing my wedding, her photography style, and new innovative ideas to make my photos AMAZING. Her work is breathtaking, and I catch myself looking at her photos nonstop! For my engagement shoot, we spent hours planning and putting it together. It was done over a course of two days, and Alicia & Latanya just wanted to keep going. They are the kind of photographers that don't stop until we have the PERFECT shot. From the time she spends shooting, to editing, to the hours she spends discussing details. She made me feel like my wedding was her top priority and I have no doubts that when I receive back ALL my photos, each one I look at will be more beautiful than the last. Thank you, Pure Emotions!

Alicia & Latanya did an amazing job of capturing all of the most important moments of our special day. We selected them originally because their work wasn't just the standard, traditional poses with plastic smiles...and we were absolutely impressed with the results for our own wedding. They captured all of the true emotions- every time we look at them you can feel exactly what an amazingly happy and wonderful day it was. They did the posed shots we requested too, but their own creative ideas were the ones that really evoked the "oohs" and "aahs" from the people who have seen them. They were easy to work with and completely blended in to the background, even though our wedding was pretty small- I was suprised to see some of the photos because I don't even remember them being taken! At any rate, we would absolutely recommend them to other brides in the future!

My husband and I can easily write an essay on our experience with Pure Emotions Photography. The owner/photographer Alicia and I met under unusual circumstances. Now that I look back, I can only say that it was preordained. We had already selected a photographer and I had already selected and put a deposit on a dress.

Then I met Alicia and everything changed. I lost money on my first dress, but I gained a new friend, a new photographer, and a new dress. All for the" BETTER" My husband met her that day as well. I wasn't feeling well and she was so caring and attentive (characteristics that exemplify her business as well). She was volunteering at a venue that is near and dear to both of us.

We had an opportunity to review her web site and we were so impressed with her work. Her personal attentiveness was evident in the details of her photography. My husband said "I like her and her work".
We had a new photographer. A few weeks later we met with Alicia and her assistant Latanya. My husband adopted them that day.

I often teased Alicia that her pictures featured beautiful people. I don't like being photographed and I don't consider myself to be very photogenic.

It’s difficult not to write that essay, but Bobby and I are so happy that fate brought us to Pure Emotions and Alicia. Our wedding pictures are beautiful. Alicia prepared a wedding preview DVD for us. It was quite a surprise! I cried. My husband cried. It was simply beautiful. It's been some months since our wedding and I never tire of watching our pictures.
We were given a gift of a leather bound DVD set. The experience and professionalism that Pure Emotions exhibited was priceless. We received far more than we expected.
Alicia possesses a true gift and is a gift. Her passion is evident, even our guests thought so.
Thank you Alicia and Latanya. You made me look and feel beautiful.
Our wedding memories are even more special because of Pure Emotions Photography.

Alicia and Latanya were great. We loved our pictures and the album they designed was amazing. They took so much time to get each picture and every page of the album perfect. Every one who sees the album always raves. From the initial meeting, Alicia made us feel comfortable by answering all the questions we had. She also explained her background and how she got started in photography. Their work/photos speak for themselves, they are true perfectionists. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Alicia, from Pure Emotions Photography and her partner are.... just, WOW. Let me tell you, they made me feel so comfortable about myself. I am extremely modest, and they could tell immediately... we ended up popping open some wine to help me loosen up. I came by myself, too, which ended up being perfect, contrary to what most people would think. The less eyes on me, the better. The shots she got of me at the Westin Tampa Bay Airport were OUT OF THIS WORLD. Again, since the place was new, we OWNED the hotel and got some really unique, America's Next top Model shots. I only got to see them on her camera, but since she showed them to me it got my excited and made me feel really comfortable. I AM NOT A MODEL but she made me feel and look like one! I HIGHLY recommend her if you are looking for someone to do your boudoir pics!!! If I didn't already have a photographer, and had a bit more money, I would have booked her for my wedding!!!

Alicia did our Wedding photos and my husband and I were so impressed with the quality of our pictures. She was on top of everything and made sure not to miss a special moment. Alicia also did our Engagement photos as well and we couldn't be happier with them. With the quality of her work we decided to have her do our Maternity and New Born photos as well. They came out amazing and I have recommended her to friends that I know either getting married or having a baby soon. She spends many hours editing her photos to make sure that every photo is perfect. Her photos are a real work of art!

I did not get any photos that I was proud to show off from my wedding. My husband agreed to re-shoot our wedding photos with another photographer. This was a big decision as I obviously did not pick right the first time. I searched through a lot of potential photographers, but nothing jumped out at me until I came across Pure Emotions Photography's webpage. The pictures spoke for themselves. Once we booked Alicia, she was in constant communication and everything went effortless. The shoot was professional and Alicia and her assistant were amazing to work with. We had fun on our shoot! When I got my pictures back they were BEYOND expectation. I LOVED THEM! Every single one! I highly recommend Alicia at Pure Emotions. She over-delivers with what she offers. Honestly, you won't be disapointed.

I met with and review what seemed like hundreds of photographers and it wasn't until I saw the pureemotionsphotography.com website that I actually became intrigued enough to look through the entire website. Alicia, the owner and main photographer's style was unique and the colors of her images were bold and eye catching. I was sold on her by the webpage alone, but then after meeting her, I knew she was the perfect choice. Alicia was extremely knowledgable and friendly. She was easy to relate to and really listened to what I was trying to get out of our wedding photographs. We choose and package with an engagement and bridal session as well as our wedding coverage. After the engagement picture session I got to be personally amazed with Alicia and her assistant Latanya. They were so creative and willing to try everything we suggested and beyond. They managed to capture our personalities in every image. The Bridal session turned out even better than I could have ever imagined. I normally never really like pictures of myself, but after seeing the bridal portraits, I was showing them off to people and blowing them up to poster size! My wedding guests were so impressed with them both during the wedding and they fell in love with the pictures. Alicia made my wedding picture planning a breeze and I could not have asked for more perfect pictures or a better photographer! I would recommend her over anyone else!
