Life & Work with Aliyah Roettgers

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aliyah Roettgers.

Hi Aliyah, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I always loved to capture any and everything so I could look back and relive those memories. I could never afford the best camera but I remember my mom getting disposable cameras and a smaller camera growing up so I could practice. it wasn’t until this past summer that I finally saved up enough money to buy my dream camera. I am grateful to be able to capture memories for families, couples and kids to go back and also relive those memories that will last a lifetime.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Not going to lie it’s been pretty smooth with the help of friends and family getting their pictures taken and referring me. I’m grateful God put such support people in my life to help live out a childhood dream.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m a photographer that specializes in trying new things. I love taking family photos, engagement and wedding pictures. My favorite thing to do is to try something new and to have fun doing it!

Who else deserves credit in your story?
My brother in laws Ryan Roettgers and James Kamnuedkhun are amazing photographers and videographers that taught me a lot of the basic and art of photography. my husband Nick Roettgers has done nothing short of amazing with supporting me and even being my model on several occasions. There are a ton more people I could shout out from my awesome church family that loves and supports me as well!
