Hey! I'm so happy you're here.
As you've probably figured out by now, my name is Alexandria - but you can call me Alex.
I just married my best friend, Nate, and were living happily in Bloomingdale, IL with our adorable pup, Sable. We are a perfect mix of homebody and adventure - just depends on the day.
I have been photographing since the beginning of high school, but it was at the end of 2015 when I started to take it seriously. I decided to ditch my textbooks and pursue my dream of becoming a wedding photographer. It has been overwhelming to see the love and support I have gotten, meet so many new faces, and to truly love what I do. I love this business because I am constantly learning, facing challenges, and getting to capture moments that will last my clients a lifetime.
My approach to photography is simple: capture the moments. I'm not big into posing or over doing it. I don't have a ton of equipment and I'm not going to edit your face so much you don't even look like yourself. I want to capture you. Your love. Your life. I live for the candid moments; belly laughs and the sweet intimate kisses that other photographers may miss.I love a couple who isn't afraid of a little adventure, possibly some dirt, and maybe even a little bit of a hike to get that perfect shot.
Tell me your story, I'd love to capture it.

Did you go to school for photography?
Very briefly, 95% of my business was self taught!
