With 10 years of experience and over 250 weddings and counting, Alex and her dedicated team have developed a reputation for beautiful imagery and an unforgettable experience. Paired with a specific attention to atmosphere and design for memories and photographs as viceral as the moments that made them.
Curated to Reflect You and Yours
A laid back luxury experience full of service and peace of Mind, every step of the way.
The day’s focus goes far beyond creating beautiful work. While stunning images that feel like you is a priority, the experience for you and your family carries just as much weight. Time in this industry has allowed us to develop a specific skill set in perception that can be adapted to you, your vision for the day and your family dynamics. The ability to read a room, make people laugh to set them at ease and to evoke emotion that elicits natural posing is a huge part of how we frame your day. This approach allows the photography to be intimate, poignant and focused on relationships. It allows you to forget that we are there.

ACT Photo Couples
Over and over we find that our favorite couples share a few similar traits.
You’re laid back but appreciate the finer things in life.
You’ll consider input from your family and friends but when it comes down to it, you won’t let anyone else’s opinions sway your vision.
You appreciate art and value photography beyond measure.
You can’t wait to pop the champagne and bust your favorite move on the dance floor.
You have a beautiful, aesthetic vision for the day and know that you want to include details of your personalities throughout the design and experience.
Yes, you’re planning a wedding but deep down you understand that the marriage and the vows you will take in front of your people is at the heart and purpose of the day.
We accept a limited number of weddings each year to ensure our clients receive the highest level of service we can provide. My team and I offer a variety of packages to suit your needs as well as the option to create something more custom tailored to your day.
I offer custom portrait sessions including boudoir, family and branding.

I call Richmond, VA home but traveling to capture people I’ve never met in places I’ve never been is always a welcomed opportunity.
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings in Ireland, Italy, The British Virgin Islands, Mexico and all across the country. Don’t let your location or distance from me bring you any hesitation.
Travel within a 60 mile radius of Richmond, VA is included in my packages and custom rates will be built based on your specific needs for destination locations. All travel will be booked by me and calculated on a case by case basis.
It’s common for my couples to express a bit of hesitation in having their photo taken. I work hard to be as unobtrusive as possible so that you are not even aware of me and my camera. My style of shooting entails creating a relaxed environment and makes it easy to forget about me and focus on your partner.
I highly encourage an engagement session prior to the wedding day. This acts as a warm up to help ease any fears and settle those butterflies. It also allows the three of us to connect and get comfortable with each other. By the time your wedding day rolls around the two of you will be feeling like naturals. The result will be easy and authentic imagery that will look and feel like you. Don’t worry, I’ve got you.
I never limit the amount of images I capture on a wedding day or the amount I deliver to my clients. A part of my job as a professional is to curate your story, leaving you with beautiful memories that will remind you of how it all felt.
You can expect around 75 images per hour of coverage time. My couples receive their wedding galleries between 6-8 weeks from their date and portrait sessions are delivered within 2-3 weeks.
Contact me here to see if I am available for your wedding day.
Arrange a consultation with me to discuss details and ensure we connect and share similar visions.
Once you would like to proceed I will send you an online proposal and contract to review and submit.
A signed contract and paid retainer will secure your wedding date.
Outside of Family Formal Groupings, no.
I want to document your day as it naturally unfolds. A shot list can stifle creativity and hold me back from staying in the moment with you. Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic places for inspiration – not for replication. Let’s keep things unique and creative to you and how I work!
Absolutely. 100%. Yes.
I’ll also snag a piece of cake – it’s my favorite perk of the job.
'I joke that besides my Husband, Alex was the best part of our wedding day.'
I am positively in love and awe with your work. You gave me exactly what I hoped for and so much more. You didn't take pictures, you delicately captured priceless, natural moments I will hold dear for my lifetime. I could hang every photograph on my wall. I am truly thankful you were with me from start to finish on my wedding day. You are a bad ass.
