wedding - elopement - travel

grabbing moments + creating an experience

Let's be friends and skip the small talk 'cause that stuff's awkward. I'm Alex (but you've already gathered that). I also go by Mom, the best dang third wheel, your personal hype girl + self proclaimed avocado addict. 

I’m a midwest + destination wedding photographer livin’ in Readlyn, Iowa, where I’ve set up my cozy little corner of the Earth with my family, alongside 857 people + 1 Old Grump.

 Sunsets make my heart melt. I’d trade Michelin Stars for Golden Arches every day because McDonalds is top notch. I listen to way too many crime podcasts and pay for Netflix solely to have The Office on repeat. I freaking love meeting new friends, so lets grab some coffee, Okay? Dope.

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!



 She did an amazing job at capturing natural moments rather than "posed" photos. She was very laid back and easy to work with (she dealt with all of my CRAZY friends and family very well). I absolutely love all of our photos, she definitely made our Beautiful day just as Beautiful in the photos we'll have to remember it by!!!!
