I wasn't sad when my wedding was over. I was just SO overwhelmingly happy about the day that happened. My wedding day was a dream- but being married to my best friend- now THAT is even better. 

I'm Alex and wedding photographer in Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm a newlywed, dog-momma, Enneagram 2 (I basically live to help & serve other people). My guilty pleasures are eating way too much ice cream, Coca-Cola, and binge watching TV series (Gilmore Girls, Seinfeld, This is Us..) I am always available for wine nights, texts, advice, and anything you need.
I have 4 sisters so I am a total girl’s girl and I approach a lot of situations from that point of view- as both a wedding professional but also with real advice and feedback from a friend.

I love weddings for what they are- unscripted celebrations showcasing human connection. Every wedding is different but every single one is so special- full of of unique people, family, friendships, love, sometimes sadness, and of course lots of dancing. I believe that it’s important to plan but also to live in the moment, and embrace what makes each wedding special and your own. I strive to document the joyful, real interactions and emotions that occur while also gently guiding you during classic portraits. I also promise that it is fun!

My editing style is traditional & true to color, clean and timeless so that your photos stand the test of time in hopes that they will always take you back to the way you felt that day, even 50 years from now.

MY RESCUE JAX

MY WHY

MY WHY

In 2010 I was a sophomore in college and my grandma was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I spent a lot of time with her as her cancer took over and her health became worse. On one occasion I brought a camera along with me to her house. She was no longer able to communicate. I talked to her, showed her my new camera and when I did my grandpa leaned over and gave her a kiss.
She smiled.
She was with us.
And I captured it on camera.
That was the the last time I ever saw her smile, she passed away 4 days later.
That is why I take photos. I take them so that you can remember the fleeting moments, the real moments, the joyful moments and everything in between so that those moments can last forever.

A wedding day can feel just like this -fleeting moments- gone in a blink of the eye. That is where my job comes in.. To preserve these moments in your history so that these moments are not gone forever, but forever here to stay.

Alex is truly one of those people who is impossible to not love- which does so much for her photography! I was so nervous that I would feel awkward and not know what to do when being photographed, but she has an impeccable talent for getting you into your comfort zone. She gives you as much freedom as you'd like, but can sense when you're out of your element and steps right in to guide you. Even our entire family and bridal party during the photo taking was commenting on how efficient, friendly and funny Alex was.

Alex takes beautiful photos, and is super accommodating. She wants the best for you on your wedding day, and through the entire process. She did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable. She is so kind and fun making the picture process VERY enjoyable.

Heather & Michael

I truly feel photography as art is super important, but it’s important to also connect with your photographer. Through our engagement session, all the way to our big day, she made us feel special and we had so much fun working with her! And I sent her countless texts about places to do pictures, outfits for engagement pictures, etc etc and she never made me feel like I was bothering her. You can truly tell she loves what she does.

I strive to capture the organic, genuine interactions and emotions while also guiding you during the romantic and classic portraits. 

MARGARITAS

On the rocks and with salt, please!

I am a firm believe there is nothing that a margarita (or a bubble bath) cannot cure.

READING

I love a good read!
I am passionate about English and literature. I was actually an English major for a year in college before I transferred to the art department to get my BFA.

When I finish a great book I actually get depressed for a few days when it is over. I love quotes from literature, too and I love hearing quotes incorporated into a wedding ceremony or decor.

ICE CREAM

Ice Cream is a complete food group in my life that I believe I can live off of.

Can I get an Amen?
