Hi! I am Alesia!
Five years ago, I was a high school math teacher. I was planning my own wedding and counting down the days until I could marry my blonde-haired, blue-eyed boy at our church in Baton Rouge. Louisiana.
As time went by and planning became more and more intense and the stress was building.
We planned, researched, called, and made our own bridesmaid's bouquets months before the big day. We wanted our day to be as stress-free as possible and wanted to capture the moments just as they unfolded so that we could soak it all in! We wanted our photos to reflect "us" and who we truly are. We were nervous to find "the one" to capture exactly what we wanted.
And then we found the perfect photographer for our wedding...
I can't honestly say I remember who all was there or very many of the specifics of our day but I remember getting in the car after riding to the Renassaince Hotel in Baton Rouge and telling Albert,
"I'm so glad we're married!"
I could honestly be there in the moment and be able to soak it ALL in! To see his face as I walked down the aisle and being able to not worry if it was being captured was priceless!
Albert and I met when we were about three years old which thankfully, neither one of us really remember. ha!
Our home is filled with pure happiness, unending love, baby squeals, and emotional safety. We laugh with or at each other probably every day. We can talk to each other about anything and everything. Albert and I are totally opposite personalities, but we have SO much in common. I am bubbly and talkative while he is quiet and reserved. Our little boy, Luke, seems to have Albert's laid-back personality. (He's 13 months old, and we just adore him!) We both love spending time with friends and family over a yummy meal and talking about life and new ideas!
We're still learning to love each other as Christ loves us, but we enjoy just about every minute of it. Albert is one of those people that won't let us go to bed angry and if I walk away, he follows me and patiently waits until we work to talk it out. He's ALWAYS patient with me. It blows my mind! He's more than I deserve.
Our lives are centered around Jesus Christ. Everything we do and every decision we make is through the lens of the Bible. We want every person we come in contact with to feel His love through us and come to accept Him as their Saviour so they can live for Him and tell others about His sacrifice and pure love.
How AlesiaKim and Co. came about
I started photographing families and small sessions along with small weddings here and there when I graduated from college. Fast forward 3 years and I realized weddings were my jam! I would photograph a wedding anytime I could even if I was the second photographer.
Over time, my clients would always ask if I offered videography as well since photography and videography go hand in hand. A dream was just beginning. I wanted to serve as many brides as possible but I had a greater calling - to be a wife and a mom.
In time and through lots of coaching, AlesiaKim Photography became AlesiaKim and Co. when I realized I had a natural desire and gift for planning. God led me to grow an associate team to be able to offer planning, photography, and videography for brides and grooms on their wedding day. His plan showed itself so many times through photography but it took a consultant to truly see that it was my passion and calling!
Now, we are able to offer all of these services to our brides and make sure their day runs smoothly with minimal stress, those real moments are captured in their photos, and they have a video and photos to look back on with joy for years to come.
AlesiaKim and Co. is a Baton Rouge and surrounding areas wedding planner, photographer, and videographer team comprised of experienced wedding professionals that are intentional about creating minimal stress and capturing real, authentic emotions and genuine smiles for our clients/friends so that the emotions of the day can be experienced all over again for years to come.

My Top 7 Favorite Things
I absolutely love "Gilmore Girls" and can binge watch it at any moment even though I've watched all the seasons... I won't admit how many times. ;)
My sweet husband! His name is Albert and he's just incredible! We will be celebrating 5 years of marriage soon!
I LOVE "You've Got Mail!" I watched it on repeat when I was sick one time which was 7 times in one day. Just me?? Alright. hehe!
"I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing, has its charms."
"Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?"
I have a little shihtzu dog named Roscoe and he's precious! He can sit, lay down, pray, and everything! He does all the doggie things. :)
This definitely shows how much of a Louisiana girl that I am but my favorite food is boiled crabs! Mmm! Can we meet to get to know each other over crabs instead of coffee? ;)
Snickers Ice Cream Bars! I don't know if that even counts as a snack but if you haven't tried them, get in your car now and go to your local "Dollar General" (cause doesn't everyone have one of those somewhere nearby?) and get yourself one! You'll thank me later!
Definitely Texas de Brazil or some type of Brazilian steakhouse. My mouth is watering already thinking of the "top sirloin!" So yummy!
