Working with Alex

The Difference

“Our ultimate hype girl (and best wedding photographer)! Not only was Alex extremely organized and professional, she was also so warm and bubbly, leaving us with a sense of calm the day of the wedding. She knew exactly how to make us laugh to capture those candid moments as well as how to wrangle our giant family to get those larger group shots. She was able to capture every moment, all while allowing us to be fully present in the day and never miss a beat of the reception.
