About

On WeddingWire since 2010

Classic and modern, timeless, beautiful, and honest. These are the qualities of the images that I will capture for your wedding.

My life experiences have been a master class in shooting weddings! I studied photography at Art Center College of Design, where she won multiple awards for her work.

My photos are a window in time. My goal is to capture the beauty and raw emotion of your wedding day. Weddings are playgrounds for an artist like me. The light, the flowers, the makeup, and fashion! But what I really love about weddings lies under the surface of all that. The emotions, the relationships, the energy of the event are what really make the images "sing".

I'm here to be a guide, a witness, a creator, and storyteller. I'm a professional who has been shooting for over ten years, I have a ton of experience, and I'm prepared for anything!

My work has been featured in various blogs and magazines, from Style Me Pretty, Marth Stewart, Elle Magazine, Grey Likes Weddings, and Green Wedding Shoes, to name a few.

Truly the best

Words cannot describe what a great experience we had with Alexa as our wedding photographer! From the moment she arrived I knew we were in good hands. She captured every moment we wanted naturally without interrupting the flow of the day. So many pictures we found ourselves saying "I didn't even know she was photographing then!" These are easily the best photos we have of ourselves and our friends. We are in our natural element and you can tell how joyful the day was. We're both fairly awkward in front of the camera, and it's so nice to have so many photos where we're genuinely smiling and just enjoying the day. A++++ cannot recommend Alexa highly enough.

I come from a family of professional photographers, so the bar was set pretty high for me to find someone great. My husband and I knew we didn't want the same old/same old wedding photos, but wanted to find someone who understood our style and would let it shine. Alexa was all that and more. We met with her before we decided to book her, and knew not only from looking at her work but from meeting her that she was "The One." She was flexible, friendly, and never over-bearing, but rather worked her magic while the day continued on its way. All the little moments she captured and special details she noticed that were so important to us are immortalized in the BEAUTIFUL photos we will cherish forever. I was so worried about how some of the locations we had to work with would turn out in photos (hello, dingy hotel room) but she not only made them look AMAZING, she made them feel so very "us." Choosing Alexa for our big day was the single best decision we made in the planning of our wedding.

Absolute visionary

We stumbled onto Alexa totally by chance and are so glad we did. We communicated our thoughts to her and she translated them into reality with grace and elan. On a busy day that can get hectic she kept everything moving along in a timely manner and was total boss which is just what we needed. She managed to capture some beautiful candids as well as some miraculous and heartwarming details. I would use her again in a heartbeat.

Alexa is so wonderfully talented and easy to talk to. I've been fortunate enough to work along side her on a couple of different weddings and I've always been super impressed with her skill and eye for photography, as well as her open and laid back approach. I highly highly recommend her if you are looking for someone with true artistic vision who is also open hearted.
