Just as each one of us is unique, no two stories are ever the same. I am devoted to capturing your genuine connections and unique story thoughtfully because your memories deserve to live on. All your emotions are welcome and safe with me.
With my personalised client experience, you will have a hand to guide and hold you as you start a new chapter in life. That means professional and reliable service from the very first meeting, and a relaxed and fun atmosphere that makes you feel secure, comfortable and natural in front of the camera so you can truly shine.
Romantic, elegant, light-filled, honest - that’s how my clients have described my work.
Combining photojournalism, refined compositions, and understanding of the natural qualities of your setting, I'm able to tell your story in a way that feels authentic, not staged, whilst allowing you to be fully present amongst those you love. I intentionally and artfully craft images with distinctive and ethereal quality so you receive meaningful photographs that inspire you for years to come.
Using both digital and film photography, I’m able to find the magic and mystery, the wonder and awe in a glance, a gesture, a moment between two souls. I love the classic, dreamy look and feel of film photography. It enables me to carefully preserve all the rich detail, colour and emotions in their truest form. Digital photography is perfect for low light, indoors and capturing those fleeting moments that take your breath away. I seamlessly harness the advantages of both mediums to document your most precious memories.
Aliki Anadena Photography was born purely out of passion. The reason why I became a photographer is because I realised that photographs are one of the greatest treasures I could have. When our family home in Indonesia was flooded in 1996, in our haste to evacuate, we grabbed a few clothes and essential documents. After the flood subsided, we returned home to see our place sadly ruined. My parents managed to salvage only a couple of family albums but unfortunately, most of my sister's and my childhood photos were gone. It's heartbreaking to know that I no longer have photos that can transport me to my childhood and remember those fleeting moments with my families. If there's anything I learnt from this experience is that photographs are tangible gifts that connect to our loved ones. They contain precious heirlooms full of memories and are always worth saving for.
To me, capturing love stories of couples and families is an incredible honour. Your photographs are deeply personal and to create great art, it takes trust and vulnerability to share your stories. Given this trust by my couples, I strive to craft a unique and honest story that represent who you are and artfully preserve the memories of one of the most important days of your lives.
My husband, Ricky is our go-to photographer's assistant. I'm blessed to have him alongside me on wedding days and assisting me by rolling films, and carrying equipments. With his background in finance and accounting, I'm thankful to also have Ricky working behind-the-scenes in managing our business books (something that I hate to do!).
Ricky is highly attentive to details and works very efficiently, thus adding another layer of the utmost care for our clients. He brings lightheartedness on weddings days and our clients love him as he's so easy to talk to.
Ricky and I have been married since November 2019. We are so grateful every day for this gift of marriage and continuously learning what it means to be a good life partner for each other.
