Alice was born in Syria and moved to Holland with her family when she was only 3 years old. Growing up in Holland, she discovered her passion for observing people, documenting people and learning their stories. As a teenager she picked up a camera and started shooting documentary style portraits and narratives all around Europe. She began to travel the world, and after an encounter with her now husband, Patrick Justin Frischknecht in Australia, they fell in love and moved to Sydney together (after some long distance which Alice says isn’t as romantic as you would think!)
Their little love, Nova is their 2 year old daughter who is a big part of who they are, their values and and Alices’ inspiration for staying true to her creative self and goals. 7 years later, they still reside in Sydney Australia, and are now moving back to Alices’ roots in Holland to spend the European Summer there, and Australian Summer back here. A truly exciting time ahead.
I met Alice in Melbourne 5 years ago when I helped shoot a beautiful Wedding with her. Her presence really stuck with me, she has a quiet nature, that is embellished, polished and significant in her work. We discuss how she fell in love with Wedding Photography, and why she loves it so much, we touch on her journey and transition becoming a mother, how business and family life blends and blurs into one. Alice is named as one of the 5 best wedding photographers in Sydney by Elle & Harper Bazaar. This Episode is truly a very honest and open chat, and I hope you get as much out of it as I did!
In our conversation we discuss…
- How she found Photography & in particular her love for Wedding Photography
- Moving from Holland to Australia, and back!
- Becoming a Mother, and how motherhood has shaped her business & goals
- Capturing Weddings in Australia compared to Europe & around the world!
- Working intimately with Brands & People and how these encounters inspire her creative style in her commercial & editorial work
