A little about me.. I have an incredible husband (we just got married!), and a very spoiled rescue dog. My 4 sisters are my best friends and I am a VERY proud auntie :)

I love reading classic fiction novels, listening to podcasts, and binge watching TV series while I edit (current obsessions- This is Us, & Seinfeld.)
I am an Enneagram 2 (I basically find purpose in helping and being there for other people). I genuinely have so much love in my heart for everyone- especially my couples.

On your day, you want someone there for you who will catch all the little details: watching for hair ties on wrists, cleaning distracting hotel backgrounds, all while capturing those special in-between moments. Like the tears in your mom's eyes as she stands back and sees you in your dress, or your grandparents busting a move on the dance floor. Well guess what? I've got you covered.

You see, here is my philosophy-

While planning for your wedding is absolutely crucial (believe me I could put Monica Geller to shame with my planning), I gravitate towards the moments that live off a timeline, because so much of the magic that happens on your day can never be planned for. 

Weddings are full of unscripted celebrations showcasing human connection. That is the best part.

I strive to to create imagery that is artistic, sometimes gently posed, but also authentic and real. My style is natural, joy-filled, and romantic, so that your wedding photos will always stand the test of time. Your photos should always take you back to the way you felt- so you will always be able to relive the day and the promises that you are making to each other.

I'm Alex, a Cincinnati wedding photographer specializing in
authentic fine art photography.




After booking, we'll schedule your engagement session. This is one of our favorite parts of the wedding photography process!  I love getting to know all of my couples not only as clients, but as friends! This kind of relationship is essential in making your images intimate and personal. This is why engagement sessions are so important!

I will be by your side for almost your entire wedding day - so I want you to feel comfortable! Engagement sessions act as a “test run” for you two in front of the camera and as a way for us to get to know each other.

Once the wedding day rolls around, you'll be pros!

My photos are strongly influenced by my formal training in fine art having earned my BFA from the University of Cincinnati's DAAP program over 5 years ago.

I have had the incredible honor of documenting couples commit their lives to one another since 2014 when I photographed my first wedding.

My work is an honest reflection of those who step in front of my camera and their wedding celebrations. I strive to document romantic, genuine and joyful images about the people in them.

"It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head."

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

Believe that they are planning a marriage, not just a wedding (but can't wait to get it on the dance floor!!)

Are joyful and laugh easily.

Are genuine and caring and make everyone around them feel good.

Love movie nights at home, ice cream and popcorn with Netlix reruns

Someone might ugly cry at the wedding (It's okay, I'll cry with you).

Organized but can also go with the flow. (So important on a wedding day!)

Knows some things only margaritas can cure ;)

Can't wait to marry their best friend!

About Me

Hi- I'm Alex and I am a Cincinnati girl (living in Northern Kentucky).

I have an incredible husband (we just got married), and a very spoiled rescue dog. My 4 sisters are my best friends and I am a proud auntie :)

I love reading classic fiction novels, listening to podcasts, and binge watching TV series while I edit (current obsessions- This is Us, & Seinfeld.)

I am an Enneagram 2 (I basically find purpose in helping and being there for other people). I genuinely have so much love in my heart for everyone- especially my couples.

On your day, you want someone there for you who will catch all the little details: watching for hair ties on wrists, cleaning distracting hotel backgrounds, pinning boutonnières, all while capturing those special in-between moments.
Like the tears in your mom's eyes as she stands back and sees you in your dress, or your grandparents busting a move on the dance floor. Well guess what? I've got you covered.

You see, here is my philosophy- 

While planning for your wedding is absolutely crucial (believe me I could put Monica Geller  to shame with my planning), I gravitate towards the moments that live off a timeline, because so much of the magic that happens on your day can never be planned for. 

Weddings are full of unscripted celebrations showcasing human connection. That is the best part.

 I believe in capturing romantic joy-filled portraiture through gentle posing and guidance but also the real, unplanned moments.

 Your photos should always take you back to  the way you felt- so you will always be able to relive the day and the promises that you are making to each other.


MY RESCUE
DOG

     Yes, I am one of those crazy dog ladies :)
My dog, Jax, is about as spoiled as they get, he even
sleeps on the pillows and gets lots of treats!

Being a fur-mama is my favorite thing in the
world and so is connecting with other animal lovers.

We love to go on hikes, play with other dogs,
walk to coffee shops and take long naps (especially this).

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?

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.
