Meet the woman behind the camera

states I've visited (and counting)

I can usually be found with either a coffee or book in hand, occasionally both. I was born and raised in the Bay Area of California, but eight years ago I packed everything I owned into my little car and moved half way across the country to the great state of Oklahoma. Now, the Midwest is where I call home, but if you need me elsewhere I'm more than happy to catch a plane, train or car to get to you.

Hey! My name is Alex! (she/her)! I am a self-proclaimed sass queen, sarcasm enthusiast, and a “laughing ‘til I snort” champ. My friends would tell you I am the "mom friend" of the group, always making sure everyone is happy and taken care of. True to my enneagram number (where my fellow 2s at?!) I am a helper. It’s what I was absolutely born to do, and boy do I thrive in my element!

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” -Brené Brown

Connection with you, and your connection with each other.
I believe that in order to authentically capture who you are, you need to be made to feel like you are in a safe and inviting environment. I create that atmosphere by taking the time to intentionally get to know you as a couple before I ever click that shutter button. I promise to never ask you to fake a laugh or force you into some stiff, awkward pose. Instead, I will empower you to be yourself so I can capture your unique love story. I will guide you through your session or wedding portraits with prompts that will get you to connect with each other and relax. You will be having so much fun; you may even forget that I’m there! When you are able to relax and have fun you are able to focus on your partner and that's when the magic really happens.

Ultimately, I believe your wedding is about you and your partner. Besides making sure that you get the awesome photos you deserve, my priority is making sure that you feel comfortable and cared for. From the moment you inquire to the day I deliver your gallery and beyond, you will know that without a doubt, I’ve got your back. I promise to be your advocate, your hype woman, and the best damn third wheel you’ve ever had.

If that sounds up your alley then I'm your girl!

We have three dogs and a cat. They are all tiny sassholes who try to eat me out of house and home, but I love them very much. 100/10 great snugglers.

I love to travel, and I absolutely live for road trips. If it was humanly possible to travel to other countries via a car, I would do that over taking a plane any day of the week. Unfortunately, they haven't invented flying cars yet, so I'll be traveling by plane for distant trips until future notice.
