+ about alex | experience +

I’m a midwest wedding and destination photographer living in Readlyn, Iowa, where I’ve set up my cozy little corner of the Earth with my family, alongside 857 people + 1 Old Grump. Since we're friends now you should probably know I thrive off making "awful" puns, love avocados and make the best dang third wheel you'll ever have. When we hang out I aim to make our experience together as comfortable, natural and light-hearted as possible. So grab a coffee and hang out here awhile!

Alex was absolutely amazing from the beginning to the end and everything in between! From any questions or concerns I had she was quick to reply and was more than willing to go out of her way to find a date and time to meet up and talk some more. She’s easy going, kind hearted, and has a talent of capturing the most amazing photos that no one can replace.

I literally looked at her Instagram and knew that she was meant to be my photographer. I was so nervous to get engagement photos.. we even brought two good friends with us. 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!

She will make you feel like you’ve known her for years after about 2.5 seconds. Alex truly cares about the experience of each and every client and dedicates so much into becoming better and better at what she does! I would recommend her to anyone!
Also, she is a master pun maker. When you’re nervous on your wedding day, you’ll appreciate that!



Alex was fantastic for our wedding! Her images are perfect and she's just so genuine. I will be forever grateful for the memories captured during our love story!
