Hi! My name is Alex and I'm so happy to meet you! I'm a creative with a penchant for nostalgia and a old world, analog, and quirky aesthetic.
I'm an effusive and passionate photographer and I take my role as the storyteller of your wedding day very seriously. I see it as not only as my job to document those special moments you want to remember forever, but also to help my clients be present and in the moment, to help calm any nerves, and to generally help in any way I can; I've discovered through the years and dozens of weddings that the happier the couple is, the better the photos are, so it's all part of a wedding day's work!
I tend to take a more hands off approach during the ceremony and reception, with a little more direction during the formal portraits, but my goal is always to help my clients' personalities shine through rather than trying to manufacture an unnatural moment, which my clients usually appreciate!
But most of all, I just love weddings! I'm a hopeless romantic, and I love that every wedding, while sharing similarities in form, is unique to that couple, taking on elements of their personalities both individually and as a couple. Your wedding is a true reflection of who you are! I come to each wedding with this in mind, treating it with the same dedication and precision as my first, because it is my first time photographing THIS wedding.
I'm inspired by so many things, but it seems to all come back to the everyday magic of love. The look in his eyes as he sees his soon-to-be spouse walk down the aisle, the gentle touch of her hand on her new partner's shoulder as they start their first dance as a married couple. The exhuberance of the dancers celebrating with their loved ones. Laughing so hard you cry during your best friend's toast, only to have those tears turn to ones of joy and love as she tells you how much you mean to her. It's these moments that bring me back to weddings over and over again, and I hope I get the chance to document these moments at your wedding.

Could not be happier
Alex was/is/has been amazing through every step of our planning. From the incredible packages, to meeting us in our home to show us samples of her work and our engagement shoot, she has been an absolute blessing. I can not promote this woman enough. The work is incredible, and the personality matches.Sent on 09/06/2019

Phenomenal photos and phenomenal person!
BOOK ALEX RIGHT NOW! I can't say enough good things about her! Alex is not only an amazing photographer, she's an amazing person! She is the most hopeless romantic and she loves love so much that she completely dives into every shoot. She helped us every single step of the way from organizing portrait lists months before the wedding, to accommodating bizarre schedules for an engagement shoot, to taking stunning wedding photos (through tears!), to hand-delivering our finalized album. Her attention to detail is divine and her style is impeccable. Alex is patient and understanding and truly made us feel heard and appreciated. She worked with me and my husband for weeks after our wedding making the album absolutely perfect and truly cared about our input and worked to make our vision come true. If you want a phenomenal photos and an photographer who will become a friend, look no further!Sent on 12/03/2019

Alexandra was amazing to work with. Planning with her was easy, and she was on-time and professional during the wedding itself. She was easy-going and responsive, and her positive attitude was wonderful!Sent on 11/07/2017
