Brides, look no further!
Idalia Photography was the first vendor we hired for our wedding, and it was the best decision we could have made! No joke, I love Alex’s photos so much I emailed her a few hours after getting engaged! From our engagement shoot to coming up with plan B (due to Covid) to building our wedding album, Alex has been incredibly communicative and on-the-ball. She handled every curveball we’ve thrown her with grace and played a huge hand in making our microwedding such a fantastic day. Without a wedding planner, I worried a lot about the logistics of the day (as most brides do!) and Alex’s schedule set the course for a smooth event. Our photos are beyond gorgeous. While planning a wedding in 2020 was a stressful and uncertain time, when we look back on the photos I see nothing but the perfect day we had! I’m so grateful for Alex and team capturing all the best moments of our wedding—these documents will be treasured for years to come. We’re already looking forward to working with Alex again at our reception! I would wholeheartedly recommend Idalia to any couple.Sent on 01/18/2021

FLAWLESS! After securing my date with my reception venue and church, Idalia Photography was THE FIRST vendor I booked, and for good reason. I knew after seeing Alex's photos that I NEEDED her as my wedding photographer. I wanted the light & airy look, but being pretty fair-skinned I, at the same time, didn't just want my photos overexposed and risk looking washed out. In my early wedding planning naivety, that was pretty much all I was looking for and I just (!) thought Alex took breathtaking photos. However, in hindsight, I gained so much more by booking with Alex. I can say with complete honesty, that she is the most professional vendor out there. From the start, she was flexible working with our budget, adjusting hours/services to make it work for us. If you're hesitating at all, just email her and you will see what I mean (though I hear her 2021 dates are all booked up, she does have associate photographers that have a few dates available as of the writing of this review!!!) After booking with Alex, she sent us a package filled with her bridal guide she wrote herself which was truly invaluable, plus extra goodies and mementos to get us excited for our wedding and to just enjoy the time we had as an engaged couple. Once we got our engagement photos back, it only further cemented our comfort level in having booked Idalia Photography. A couple months after our engagement session, COVID hit and without skipping a beat, Alex was with us every step of the way to make sure we could achieve a beautiful wedding, even with the restrictions in place. She listened to all my concerns and made everything work out. She created a wedding day timeline for us and worked with my wedding coordinator on the finer details. I knew I could trust Alex's expertise so I looked to her for vendor recommendations based on who she has worked with and found success with in the past. My photographer was my most important vendor since the photos are what last a lifetime, so I wanted to make sure everything jived with her. The day of the wedding, Alex came with her second shooter AND an assistant. I truly felt like they all wanted us to have the best day ever and we felt super taken care of. We opted to take extra pictures during our cocktail hour and I'm so glad we did because they came out so beautiful and, again, the pictures were so important to us (and don't worry, our caterer made sure we got the appetizers!). We got a preview of our photos back a week later and are obsessed! We've looked at them every day since, trying to relive all the memories we can because our day was so wonderful, thanks in BIG part to Alex and her team. We are so excited to get our full gallery back and we are sure they are going to blow us away! Also, because Alex brought an assistant with her, she was taking mini videos in the background and surprised us with an instagram reel a couple weeks after the wedding which brought tears to our eyes! In short, we LOVED having Alex. She was the easiest person to work with, extremely professional, top-notch talented and creative, and we have 0 regrets booking her. If you want to be rest assured that one area of your wedding is 100% taken care of, book this photographer and just trust her! I wish I could give a million stars! Thank you so much Alex for allowing us to relive the best day of our lives. 10-11-2020Sent on 10/28/2020

Perfect representation of our beach wedding
My husband and I were lucky enough to have worked with Alex in October 2020. We knew her bright, airy aesthetic would be the perfect representation of our beach wedding at LBI—and man, were we right! Alex is a true artist, and we can confidently recommend her to any couple.Sent on 01/19/2021
The entire process was extremely smooth—from the months before, to the day of, to the delivery of the final product. We really appreciated her professionalism, timeliness, and clarity on her process during the planning stage, which really set our minds at ease.
The day of our wedding was just amazing and carefree (perks of an intimate, easy-going wedding). We knew we were in good hands from the moment Alex and her assistant showed up. Both ladies were warm yet focused, effortlessly capturing all of the most important shots as well as the smaller details and candids we didn't know we needed. Their direction felt very natural the entire time.
A week after our wedding, I cried happy tears when we saw the preview gallery of the photographer's favorite photos—we knew we chose the right person to capture our day! The final product is stunning—the composition, lighting, and all of the details are carefully considered and consistent. Our photos are truly the gift that keeps on giving.
