“Anything but weddings.”
It was my standard answer whenever people asked me what I wanted to do with my photography. Chances are, you’ve already run into “those” photographers who tell you they started their epic voyage of wedding photography with their dad’s old camera back when they were two, and knew it was their destiny to make you look beautiful and capture your love with their camera (kinda weird). I’ll be honest: I never dreamed of photographing somebody’s wedding.
I wanted to be an architect until I was 17. I developed a knack for photography in highschool but my favorite subjects were my fluffy kitties, not brides and grooms. I had heard horror stories of bridezillas and evil in-laws, so I figured I’d be just fine taking snapshots at home, until a friend was in a pinch and needed a second shooter for a wedding she was covering. So I shot my first wedding.
And before I knew it, I made a liar out of myself: I loved photographing weddings, and it became my regular job.
My goal has always been telling your story with my photos in thoughtfully crafted images. It’s more than documentation. It’s more than photojournalism. It’s integrating your personalities into the surroundings of your wedding: fine art.
But enough about me – I want to hear about you! After all: without you, there’d be no wedding, and with no wedding, there’s a high probability I’d be at home feeding my frozen dairy dessert addiction on weekends instead of taking pretty photos. Tell me about your engagement. Your fluffy kitties. Your favorite ice cream flavor. It’s all part of your story, and I want to hear it.

Still refer Alex four years later!
This is an overdue review as Alex and his team photographed my wedding in 2015 - gorgeous photos that we still love and are still impressed by. Beyond that, Alex was awesome to work with and I refer him to every engaged couple in the area because of how much we (my husband, bridal party, family and I) all enjoyed working with him. He (and his photos) are the best! Alex was professional, flexible, took the lead while still allowing my husband and I to have input, creative, personable, and so much fun to be with. We won the lottery with Alex as our photographer - would not have changed one thing.Sent on 11/21/2019

Alex captured our day beautifully!
Alex captured both our engagement photos and wedding day beautifully! He was easy to work with, made the day fun and kept us as on schedule as possible. He offered great advise and tips while planning and on the day of coordinated with our other vendors seamlessly. He goes above and beyond the role of photographer to make everything perfect (he had to help button my dress and tie a bow tie and picked up the wedding bands we left behind by accident!) Our wedding photos will last a lifetime and we were so happy to have his artistic but organized skill set!Sent on 10/03/2019
Alex Schon has the rare ability to capture the big and little moments. Photos of a wedding day are sure to become beautiful, cherished heirlooms for the couples he photographs. His photographs are truly stunning! Professional, enthusiastic and extremely talented; I highly recommend Schon Photography!
