My husband, Daniel, says I can’t dance. He isn’t wrong, but I do it anyway. (I like to embarrass him)

When I was pregnant with our first, we were told we were having a boy. We bought ALL THE THINGS and then had a baby girl. Norah still keeps us on our toes, but we love her to bits!

Daniel and I play monopoly with family multiple times a week, score sheets and all. I think you could say things are getting pretty serious.

Yo, Alex here!
I'm an Enneagram 2, wife and mama, which essentially means my home is always full of people, 
baked goods, board games and warmth (not temperature warmth, we keep our house at a crisp 67°, but more of a cozy, we have a million blankets kind of warmth).

I spend my days hanging out with my two daughters, Norah (3) and Gwen (2), going on walks, baking banana bread and making a million messes. My husband, Daniel, and I are always watching The Office and playing Monopoly. We've been together for almost 10 YEARS.

When Daniel and I got married in 2014, we didn't hire a wedding photographer, since diving into photographing weddings, I've helped couples make sure they don't miss a single thing on their wedding day. I know what it's like to miss out on those moments and I'm here to make sure you don't make the same mistake. I've been there so you don't have to be.

You’ve landed here - which means you understand how important photos truly are. This also means, you’ve likely never been through this process before and you’ve got some questions.. Luckily for you, I’ve done this a few times. 
You’re all high on the butterflies of engagement and planning but at the same time probably a little bit nervous of how this whole thing works and trying to figure out everything you need to do. The thing I love about weddings is they are all your own. You don’t HAVE to do anything if you don’t want to. You can try out something new, ditch some tradition or go full on traditional. 
This is YOUR day. 

You’re here for amazing photos but are also maybe a tad shy or self conscious. Guess what? So were 90% of my couples. Would you have ever guessed? Probably not and they can tell you that during and after their session they completely forgot about all those “awkward” feelings and felt totally comfortable! 
You’re like, “Yeah, okay, but how?” 
I love couples who just go for it. Those we aren't afraid to get dirty, take photos in the rain and find some adventure. During your session I don’t place you in stiff poses, like the photos on your grandma’s fridge you’ve been begging her to take down or replace. Building a relationship with you to know how you two best interact while also using prompts during your sessions is how we roll. 
I’ll have you running around, whispering goofy things and kissing with your teeth. 
Taking photos isn’t just about gorgeous photos, that’s a given, it’s about the memories you make during your sessions + wedding day.

look around—

hey there!
