“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.

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 was a joy to work with, from the second we became interested in his photography for our April 2019 wedding. Alex is an incredibly talented, kind, and organized photographer and we could not be happier with his work! Alex worked with us to ensure we were satisfied with our photography package, including elements that were "must haves" on our list (second shooter etc.). Leading up to the wedding, Alex sent over documents for us to fill out to give him a better idea of the timeline of our day, any group shots or specific shots were looking for, and some questions just to get to know us as a couple. This effort made us feel natural in front of him and allowed him to capture shots that truly reflected our relationship. Alex was great on our actual wedding day - taking charge when necessary to get our desired shots but also staying in the background during special moments but capturing them all the same. We would highly recommend Alex!Sent on 05/08/2019
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!
