The laughter, the joyful tears, the surprises. The moments that you didn't plan to be captured on your wedding day. The out of the box/ untraditional/let's-just-get-married weddings. 

Hi!

 I'm the one with the
cool cape & CAMERA

I'm Alex. I spend most of my free time with my husband and our two fur babies, Belle & Conor- frequenting Home Depot and Chipotle and driving my husband nuts with decorating our house. We got married in June of 2019 and our wedding will always be my favorite day. 

The first wedding I ever photographed was one I'll never forget. It was a city hall elopement and an intimate dinner. I clicked with the couple from the first email exchanges and by the time I left their dinner I felt this connection to them that would fuel me to take on this journey. I felt this incredible mixture of my art and deep emotion and it's now one of the things I love most about being a wedding photographer.  

I'll cry behind the camera while you dance with your dad. I'll be the photographer that will bustle your dress or take out your veil for you.  I'll cheer you on to make you laugh when you and your partner take portraits with me and I'll be the person that reminds you to sit back to take it all in during your reception. Because to me, it's about the entire experience while working with me and having a connection with you is important.

On the contrary, Alex makes you feel like you've been friends for a long time and totally put us in the right mindset. As for the day of, she was so clutch in keeping things moving, all while being friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive. Anything I needed or any question I had, I knew Alex was my girl. Impressively, she got us our wedding preview gallery nearly immediately and well... just WOW. She captured some absolutely beautiful shots that I can't wait to share and frame. I'd use her again in a heartbeat and am already thinking about future occasions where I can use her skills!

 Alex is so incredibly professional, attentive and accommodating in EVERY SINGLE STEP of the planning process and the day(s) of. Not only was she so incredibly supportive in helping plan the day of my elopement and scheduling out the shots to be taken for my reception, but she captured every beautiful moment of each day. She was always in touch, even when the planning gets hectic just to check in and see how everything is going.

"Alex TRULY TOOK OVER THE DETAILS AND MADE US FEEL LIKE EVERYTHING WAS UNDER CONTROL AS SHE RAN BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN GETTING PHOTOS OF ME, MIKE, AND ALL OF THE DETAILS IN BETWEEN. AND EVERYONE SAID TO ME ALL NIGHT (AND STILL) HOW SWEET SHE WAS AND WHAT AN AMAZING JOB SHE DID. SOMETIMES VENDORS DON'T JUST DO THEIR JOB, THEY GO ABOVE AND BEYOND AND THAT EFFORT TRULY STAYS WITH YOU. "

"WE FELT AT EASE THE ENTIRE DAY BECAUSE OF HER GUIDANCE. NOT ONLY WAS HER EXECUTION OF THE DAY ON POINT, BUT WE HAD A PREVIEW GALLERY OF HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS WITHIN 24 HOURS. I CRIED ALL OVER AGAIN SEEING THE WAY SHE CAPTURED OUR DAY ON PAPER. HER PHOTOS ARE WHAT I’VE DREAMED OF SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL, AND I’M SO HAPPY WE CHOSE HER TO CAPTURE MY VISION. EVERY TIME I LOOK AT THEM, I TEAR UP ALL OVER AGAIN. "
