I love bright, authentic, joyous, and vibrant photos. Going on adventures with my couples is what I live for. Hikes, waterfalls, deep in the woods, you name it! Rain? No problem! I love leaving a session with a big smile on my face because it was filled with laughter.
I love photographing weddings all over beautiful New York State. When you book a session with me you will have a mix of posed and candid photos. You don't have to worry about feeling uncomfortable in front of the camera either. We get those jitters out right away!
Hi, I'm Alicia
am so excited you're here. I am your award winning Syracuse NY Wedding photographer! My love for photographing weddings began in 2012.
My son, Logan, is a kind hearted, silly, high energy boy. He loves sports and has the best one liners. Ryder is an Australian Shepard, Husky, Rottweiler mix. He is a big ball of energy and a perfect fit for our family. I grew up in Baldwinsville and that is where I currently live. When I was younger I would always steal my moms camera. In high school I took photography. I learned everything in the dark room. My love for photography didn't stop there and that is why I do what I do. I love capturing love.
I went to SUNY Oneonta and thought I wanted to be an english teacher... after changing my major a few times I ended up back at photography. After finishing up at Oneonta, I went to SUNY Oswego to get my masters in Art Education. During this time I photographed my first wedding!
My background story
am a mother, wife, and dog mom! My son is 10 years old. If you follow me on social media you will see a lot of him and Ryder, my dog.
A Look into my
1 / 2
My son, husband and dog are everything to me! They are my "why". I would pick a day home with them over anything else. I love to cozy up with a soft blanket on the couch and cuddle with them while we watch the same Disney movie for the 100th time.
If we aren't spending the day at home, we are out hiking. Being outside and exploring new places puts me at ease. I love photographing weddings because they bring me to so many amazing venues I normally wouldn't be able to see.
My Favorite Things
2 / 2
I love coffee mugs. I look forward to picking out my mug every morning. To me, the mug I drink my coffee out of every morning matters. I have an AMAZING coffee mug shelf on the kitchen wall that holds 20 mugs. Of course my cabinets are overflowing with mugs too.
"Alicia is the total package! Not only is her work amazing, she is friendly, knowledgeable, and organized - all qualities you need for an excellent photographer during one of the most chaotic moments that you want to remember your entire life. On our wedding day, Alicia showed up and got right to work taking ALL the pictures and didn’t stop until we were walking out the door at the end of the night. Alicia made sure we got all the shots we wanted during both our engagement shoot and wedding. She has an eye for detail - something I didn’t know I needed until I saw my wedding pictures. Besides having a total blast with her while taking pictures, I found myself looking to her with all of my wedding related questions. Do not hesitate on booking Alicia - her prices are more than fair and her sneak peeks and album turn around is timely. She is professional and knows what she’s doing!"

I whole heartily recommend Alicia! I promise you won’t be disappointed!"
"Alicia was absolutely incredible! She went above and beyond and exceeded all of our expectations for our special day! We couldn’t be happier with the quality of our photos and the way she helped make our big day so carefree. We will definitely be using her again in the future for professional and amazing photos!"
"I’m so glad we had Alicia capture the happiest day of our lives! She did a beyond beautiful job, and not only does she take amazing pictures but she is such a wonderful person! She is so very kind and would always go out of her way to check in with us during our process of wedding planning. I barely noticed her during the wedding and when I saw the pictures she took of us I couldn’t help but cry tears of happiness at how wonderful they came out! Alicia gave us beautiful pictures of our wedding we will be able to cherish the rest of our lives and I am so grateful for that!"
"Alicia is such a pleasant person to work with and she cares SO much about what she does. She truly goes above and beyond to capture the most beautiful moments for her clients. She's so creative and down to Earth; working with her is a breeze! Alicia always makes us feel so comfortable, and knows exactly what poses make the best shots. She pays close attention to detail and doesn't miss a beat! She really is the absolute BEST!!! I stare at our wedding pictures every single day in awe. I can't thank her enough for capturing every moment and gifting us with the most precious memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. I would recommend her over and over again!

"Alicia is an amazingly talented photographer and really takes the time to get to know her clients. We were so happy that we made the decision to have her be our wedding photographer and our expectations were far exceeded! She did a fantastic job and we could not recommend her more!"
" Alicia was very professional and a joy to work with. She was very personable and easy to talk to. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted and checked in with us multiple times before the wedding to ensure everything was still on track. Her pictures are exceptional! The guests were very impressed with her professionalism as well as her ability to just blend in. She was a blast to work with!"
" Alicia was amazing!! We planned our wedding quickly due to my husbands deployment. She was super flexible and understanding of our schedule. She was awesome on our wedding day. She fit right in with our family. Highly recommend!!"
" Alicia is wonderful to work with. She is such a genuine person and makes the whole experience fun! Planning a wedding through Covid, Alicia was incredibly flexible and understanding. She helped to ease our worries and make sure we still had an enjoyable day. She captured both the big moments and the small, and her photos are beautiful. The lighting she gets is perfect! We plan to have Alicia continue to capture all our life milestones! You will be so happy you chose her as your photographer!"
" Our wedding was a small elopement in Watkins Glen NY at the Idlwilde Inn. There was only the 2 of us and our 2 best friends as witnesses. Alicia was the perfect choice and we couldn't have pulled it off without her. She was so easy to work with and was invaluable with her helpful tips and suggestions. Her pricing for our small and short ceremony was very reasonable. The pictures came out better than I ever could have hoped. You need Alicia Pierce Photography to capture your treasured memories."
