I'm Alexa & that's my husband Evan, a biologist by weekday and the best second shooter in the world by weekend. Whether he joins me for photos or spends the day at home taking care of our beloved pup Manchego, he's the best of the best. Bonus points because we both equally love new friends, dogs, bad dancing, hiking, libraries, Sour Patch Kids, and genuine love in all its many forms.
I started photographing weddings after working for a few years in the music industry. I loved the rush of a live performance - from the completely unpredictable nature of each show to the joy on the faces of every audience member, I adored everything about those performances. And then I realized there was a connection here --
Each and every wedding day is totally original and completely unpredictable. There might be a similar schedule, but the day will move according to the couple, the weather, the venue, the guests; the energy will vary and the speeches will be personalized, but one thing will always be the same - the adoration in the room. The big show-stopping moments and the small, almost forgotten ones in between; the fact that you and your partner and your friends and family and loved ones have been waiting for this for months. The magnitude of the day. It's all there.
Photographs are heirlooms; they’re physical, tangible memories of moments you never want to forget. This is your legacy. Your whole heart wrapped up in a single moment. I want to document not only how those moments looked, but how they felt.
I'm here for the real stuff. the big smiles and the quiet moments. the perfectly planned and the delightfully unexpected. The inside jokes and the super-tight hugs and the laughing so hard your stomach hurts. Weddings and newborns, senior graduations and beloved pets. Every single moment of life, big or small, deserves to be honored and remembered.
I aim to be your silent sidekick and biggest fan. whether it be someone to bustle your dress, a pocket full of extra bobby pins and tissues, a reassuring voice, a granola bar when you’re feeling low, or someone to carry your bags, I’ve got your back.
You have something beautifully unique that deserves its own little place in history. I am so inspired by you and would be honored to help show the world how incredible you really are.
I want to tell
I am a HUGE believer in actually participating in and enjoying your wedding day. That means I am never going to take you away for long stretches of time for photographs. Portraits are so special and the results are often the thing you're most excited to show off on social media, but they are not the whole day. You just spent months planning (and paying for) this amazing day - you should be able to spend it with you guests! Genuine moments between you two and with your friends and family is always my top priority.
I am your fly on the wall for the day, but when we do snag 10 minutes for those portraits, it won't be awkward, I promise. I am personally so awkward in front of the camera, so I have based my directing on things that I know will make me look and feel comfortable, and they'll do the same for you.
