About Alex

My name is Alex

Alex – Lead Photographer

I have had a camera in my hand as long as I can remember. I may have learned to press the shutter button before I could walk. HA! Okay that may be a stretch, but I have been creating pictures for a very long time. My grandmother taught me how to shoot on a Canon 35mm SLR film camera, then she showed me how to develop and make prints in her basement darkroom. Which is incredibly awesome! That was when I was 12 years old. I have never put the camera down since. Photography is something I am truly passionate about, and I believe that passion shows in the images I make. I enjoy the challenge of visual storytelling, and look forward to telling the story of your big day!

Hobbies & Interests

Other than the obvious (photography), I love all things outdoors. Hiking, biking (road and mountain), surfing, paddle boarding, camping, etc. There is just something about being outdoors that makes me happy!

I also enjoy traveling. Between personal travel and my time spent enlisted in the Coast Guard I have been fortunate enough to have visited over 25 different countries. If I had to pick a favorite it would have to be Spain. The people. The food. The history. The scenery. It was all just so amazing.

I also happen to be a big fan of college sports (Go Wildcats! Go Volunteers!!…. It’s a long story, I’ll explain if you really want to know).
