Alex McCrary Photography

I'm Alex McCrary, wife, mama, professional third wheel, based in tiny Readlyn, Iowa. Genuine emotion, making the ordinary feel magical and helping you not feel hecka awkward in front of a camera are my jam. I chase sunsets, listen to way too many crime podcasts and eat avocados on the daily. I hate naps + wine. I live for iced coffee, (lavender or raspberry syrup in coffee is amazing, trust me) going on walks with my fam + watching The Office with my husband, Daniel, on repeat for the millionth time.

hey babes.

about me

My husband, Daniel, and I have been together since we were 14, high school sweethearts, and now have two beautiful daughters, Norah and Gwendolyn. I’ve got a reputation as a mom to not just my kids but also everyone around me. If you walked into our home, you’d probably find freshly made banana bread or chocolate chip cookies on the counter and kids’ toys - EVERYWHERE.

I can usually be found drinking abundant amounts of coffee with vanilla almond milk creamer while hanging out with my girls. Netflix is usually running in the background playing The Office for the millionth time and if it’s not, I’m definitely listening to a podcast. Living in a tiny town has many perks but not having a store in sight within 25 miles of our home is not one of them, so you better believe if there is any excuse to go on a trip to walk around Target, it’s happenin’.
I can’t wait to grab some coffee with you! 

meet the fam.

about me

To start things off, I'm a low profile photog and I mean quite literally, I'm only 5'. If you're looking for a truly laid back + go with the flow + no stress kinda experience, I'm your girl, the coolest third wheel around.
If you need a photographer just to cross it off your wedding to-do list to get some family formals for your grandma’s fridge, I’m not your girl, and that’s okay! I never had my own wedding photographed and to this day I have #regrets. I know what it feels like to miss out on those memories and I’m here to make sure you don’t make the same mistake.
This day only happens once, so if you’re looking for someone who care about the details, your story, why there is no love story like your own and gives you a killer experience, I am your girl, and I’m flipping’ excited to grab some coffee with you!
I’m not here to cross off another date on my calendar, I’m here because I freaking care about your love and your special day.
I’m a photographer for that everyday couple who wants to feel like their relationship is a scene from a Nicholas Sparks movie, even if they're just doing the dishes. The couple who is ready to get their clothes dirty for some fun, eat takeout in their living room, and who wants to make the ordinary things a little more extraordinary.

"It was like Alex was another best friend. We had so much fun with her. It felt like the hottest September day ever and we were swarmed by hundreds of mosquitos but yet she somehow managed to get incredible photos that we both are in love with. She made us feel so comfortable! I can not wait for her to be a part of our wedding day.”

- amy + tyler

Alex truly cares about the experience of each and every client and dedicates so much into becoming better and better at what she does!SHE WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’VE KNOWN HER FOR YEARS AFTER ABOUT 2.5 SECONDS.  I would recommend her to anyone!”
