"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."

Hey hey hey! I'm Alex! Most days you can find me hanging out with friends and family, eating out at a cool restaurant, drinking some wine, hanging out in the sun, or sitting around doing absolutely nothing. I am a wedding and portrait photographer, a friend, and a sister. People often refer to me as outgoing, bubbly, fun, and passionate. I love providing my clients with a fun, helpful, and amazing experience. My clients love my genuine, candid, clean, authentic photos that truly reflect their love, their personalities and their amazing wedding day. In high school, senior year, I made the decision that photographing people and capturing memories and emotions was something I wanted to do for a living. I am passionate about creating and preserving memories. I'm pretty darn lucky to have amazing clients that allow me to have the honor to capture their life. Most importantly, I am lucky I am able to give them lasting moments and memories.
