About Alicia Arcidiacono
Starting young with mud and nature as my creative outlet, I grew up and moved on to the sophistication of an intimidating box with too many buttons, a camera. This led me to pursue photography in college and many long nights in the darkroom fiddling with film reels and chemicals. Fifteen years later and I am still madly, deeply wild about photography.
After growing up in Delaware and graduating, I fledged and migrated westward. For over a decade, I followed the migrating ways of my feathered friends as a traveling wildlife biologist. From releasing falcons in West Texas, locating woodpeckers in the Sierra Nevada, surveying for endangered birds along the Colorado River, monitoring bats in California, rescuing sea turtles in Costa Rica, studying birds in Peru, and volunteering building a house in Guatemala, I continue my insatiable urge to explore the world. Along with biology, I have taught at outdoor schools, worked as a ranch hand, and photograph events, portraits, & weddings. Whether photographing baby toads or capturing the love and passion between two humans, my heart and soul are always with me behind the lens.
Working within the field of weddings is my jam! From the planning to the details to the big day, I am there beyond a photographer to make sure my couples can sit back and ENJOY their wedding. My fun energy will put you and your wedding party at ease and delight you with vibrant, joyous, and timeless photos capturing your love story.
Now located in the California bay area, you can find me at the Paicines Ranch as a photographer, social media designer, and jill-of-all-trades. And, chasing chickadees, of course.
