It’s been a hot minute since I’ve updated this blog, especially with anything personal. I’m so excited to dive in and let you know everything that’s been going on!
For those who don’t know me, I’m Alex McCrary. Wife to Daniel, we’ve been together since we were 14, got married at 18 and here we are 7 years later with 2 daughters, Norah (5) and Gwendolyn (almost 4!).
I’m a midwest and destination wedding and couples photographer based in Iowa.
I got started in photography when I was in high school, just taking photos of friends and family. I took a step away when we got engaged/married to focus more on work. After we had Norah, we decided I should stay home and I began to pick up the camera again. After having Gwen, I decided I wanted to find something I loved doing outside of the home. In 2018 I took photos of anything and everything, seniors, babies, families, couples and 2 weddings. I fell in love with weddings + couples, in 2019 I had 12 weddings, in 2020 through a pandemic I had 20 weddings and started an associate team. In 2021 between the 3 of us we had 25 weddings, with 3 of them being destination (2 in Florida, 1 in the Dominican Republic). 2022 we plan to keep workin’ and growing and doing what we love.
Last year (in July, 2021) my husband was able to quit his job he had been working for 5 years. We decided to open ANOTHER business and we now also own a coffee shop.
It’s been A LOT. A lot of learning, pivoting and thankfulness.
This year I plan to take more time to slow down, do what we love and dive more into educating and mentoring other photographers.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
