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.

my approach:

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.

"Alexa photographed our backyard wedding and I could not have asked for a cooler woman to work with. I HATE having my picture taken and wanted something super minimal, and Alexa was just the calmest coolest force through the whole thing. She checked in numerous times to make sure we were ok in the midst of COVID craziness, and totally rolled with the punches all the way through. She's got vision (thank god because I had no idea what I wanted), a huge smile, and a calming demeanor that really helped us be ourselves for the pictures."

"Alexa was above and beyond our expectations with photographing our wedding. Her and her husband arrived early to spend the entire day with us and even drove us to specific sites for shots to capture our day. They fit in so well with our bridal party and helped everyone feel comfortable. I cannot compliment her enough for her professionalism and true care she had about making our wedding a day we will never forget."

Emily + Zack

"My husband & I are both from Atlanta, Georgia and we chose to get married in Pittsburgh, PA where all of my family lives. As you can imagine, that already puts a lot of stress on us having to plan from afar. I ended up finding Alexa Frankovitch Photography & let me tell you, that was the best decision we could have made. She was absolutely amazing. Alexa was right by my side to provide snacks, drinks & all the support she could offer. She was everything we could’ve asked for in our wedding photographer. Alexa had captured every intimate & fun memory from our day that we can now have forever."

Erika + Blake

"She is easy to communicate with, offers assistance with anything and everything you may need, and is so accommodating! She offers advice, suggestions, and also listens and turns your ideas into something amazing! She shot our engagement photos, which we were extremely happy with! That made me so excited to work with her again on the day of our wedding. Throughout the entire process, Alexa communicated with us and offered her assistance with all our planning needs. On the day of the wedding, her and her husband made the perfect duo. They got every shot we could have imagined or wanted, and so much more! They are fun, light-hearted, and easy-going people who were so much fun to work with!"

Hannah + Ryan

"Both Alexa and Evan were creative, helpful, kind, and so easy to have around! They are not only excellent photographers, but have uniquely fun and warm personalities and vision to truly capture the little moments throughout the inevitable blur of the day. The candids and natural shots they captured helped me relive the emotions of the day all over again!"

Natalie + Greg

"WORLD CLASS PHOTOGRAPHER! Seriously, we were blown away by Alexa and her work. She had never been to our venue before, and that didn’t impact her work at all. I actually think it gave us more original shots than what we had seen from the venue. Alexa was so easy to work with from start to finish, a photographer who really took the time to sit with us and talk about what we were looking for and what our style was and also addressed any wedding concerns we had. She wasn’t just an incredible photographer, she also helped my sisters bustle my wedding dress when she saw they were struggling. Seeing her jump into action and help them out made me even happier we chose her for our special day. She took amazing photos of our wedding and we couldn’t be happier."
