Adam and Alika from Despres Photography are lifesavers! The night before our wedding, our photographer canceled on us. We were devastated! Talk about Bridezilla! What were we going to do? My husband's family had some pictures taken in the past by Alika and they were very impressed with her work. Dustin got on the phone and called Adam and Alika to see if they could make anything work. They were very flexible and made things happen for us! They saved the day! Adam and Alika were able to arrive early on the day of our wedding so we could talk about the plan for the day. They did a great job taking pictures and kept everything fun. Despres Photography saved our wedding day! I would recommend them to anyone.Mesa and Dustin GroenMarried July 27th, 2009They recently just had a baby girl and named her, Alika.
Alika Coba Groen has entered the world!Daddy and Mommy would like to share with everyone how she got her name. Alika Hartman was our "saving grace wedding photographer". She and her boyfriend, Adam, were able to help us out for our wedding with very short notice. Both Dustin and I really liked the name Alika and thought that it was a beautiful name. Alika has a Hawaiian meaning of truthfull and a Swahili meaning of most beautiful.Coba is Alika's middle name. Dustin's great grandmother's name was Coba. It is a Dutch name that is short of Jacoba.Dustin and Mesa GroenMarried June 27, 2009Posted on CaringBridge.com Alika Born: April 23rd, 2010

They were extreamly professional. They were both able to get my kids out of their shells within the first 5 minutes that we were there. The pictures captured every expression that melts a parent's heart. They are worth the drive, if you want a moment in your child's life to stand still!?Leah TersteegApril 14th, 2010
