let's meet your photographer

Get to know me and my why

I still do, maybe not so much the brochures but my heart swells when I travel down the memory lane. It brings the joy and romantic out of me on any day. 

I believe it’s called nostalgia.   

So if you are looking for someone to capture your special day for you, then I hope you are some nostalgic humans like me. I want to be an imagery poet for your wedding day and sing out your stories with these photographs. Candid, raw, honest, but with a touch of dreamily style to them.
I wish to make your tears count, your laughters seen, and maybe bring the joy and romantic out of you on any day when you flick through these images again. And again.

I used to collect photographs, artistic brochures and little collectables while travelling. 

Hi, I'm Aka. I am a dreamer and a sucker for nostalgia. 

What I care about most are the simple things. 
So you can travel back in times without closing your eyes.
To relive the moments and feel the tingling in your hands. And don’t forget about those belly laughs, tears, and crazy moves.
Let me capture all the rawness and imperfections that make your stories completely your own. 

The big feelings, the little things, the loud and the quiet moments, the bold and intimate connections, and everything in between.
Someone told me the importance in our DNA is to pass down the stories, to tell who we are. It is in our blood and it's our legacy. That's why I am so passionate about capturing stories.
So you can tell your stories over and over again
upon coffee tables and wine glasses, 
underneath sunshine and moonshine,
as your journey goes on.
If you think I am your guy, 
drop me a line and we will start/spark from there ;-)

My photography is an extension of myself, authentic, romantic
and nostalgic.

Hayley & Mick

 A true artist, she beautifully captured the heart and soul of our big day. Her kind, down to earth nature is instantly calming. It never felt like we were posing, she made it really easy to have fun, and just be ourselves. Hence, she so easily captures those natural shots, the really special in-between moments that say so much in a look or a smile. Thank you, Aka, for telling our story in the most phenomenal way. Forever grateful."

"Enchanting, romantic, wild and free. That's how I describe Aka's work.
