I get this concern often but honestly, there is nothing to be worried about. Most couples I work with haven't been in front of a camera since high school senior photos, so nerves are totally normal. Just be yourself! I am constantly giving you direction, feedback and encouragement. You will have so much fun you'll forget the camera is even there. I promise. Read more about the experience I've provided to past clients in my my google reviews or in my featured reviews listed below.

we've never been in photos Together, i'm nervous.

It's quick and easy! I require a 50% retainer + a signed contract to officially lock down your date. I will send you both a digital invoice and contract that you can fill out/pay online. Once signed and paid, your date will no longer available to future clientele.

What do i have to do to book you?

Upon booking, each one of my couples receives a detailed wedding and vendor guide. I also write custom timelines for my couples and am available for venue walkthroughs/FaceTime meetings throughout the planning process. After the wedding, edited images are delivered in the form of an online gallery in both hi-res and web-size and are free to download. Photo products are also available for purchase, some of which include albums, prints, canvases, calendars, and more. Add ons include an engagement session and a second shooter.


I've had the amazing chance to photograph couples all over the United States (Texas, Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, Idaho, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and Virginia.) As well as Hawaii, Mexico, Ireland and India. I'm always ecstatic when a couple or family decides to bring me along for their elopement, wedding or session. 

Do you travel for work?

4-8 weeks for portrait sessions (engagement, family etc.) and 6-12 weeks for weddings. I carefully hand edit each image and tackle each session or wedding in chronological order so I really appreciate your patience!

how long does it take to recEive my images?

For weddings/sessions located within a 3 hour roundtrip drive of Portland, there are no travel fees. For weddings/sessions 3+ hours roundtrip from PDX, there is an additional travel fee. I typically book all accommodations, flights and other travel fees and invoice clients' after their wedding or session for a reimbursement.

Please reach out for more specific details!

I learned on my dad's film cameras in high school starting in 2004 but before that I was photographing dogs on the street of the Dominican Republic on family trips or bugs and trees at temple camp at the age of 12.

I've photographed well over 100 weddings and a few hundred sessions including couples, maternity, newborn, bar/bat mitzvahs, portraits, brands, yoga studios, first birthdays, and headshots.

Where do we begin? Alexandra showed up for us in countless ways leading up to our wedding. First, as two people that don't like having their photo taken, she made it fun and silly and made us feel comfortable just being our weird, awkward selves. Then somehow she turned that into beautiful art that we will cherish forever.

Alexandra's edit is crisp and clean and allows the real joy of the day to shine through. She understands that a wedding is a culmination of so many people and experiences, and does her best to capture ALL OF THAT for you.

We shifted our wedding plans due to COVID and she helped create a timeline for our small intimate ceremony and was flexible in helping us set up two packages for both the ceremony and postponed reception. We truly can't say enough about how much we love her energy, care, and photos. Wedding photos are an important investment and with Alexandra you will receive images that you will cherish forever and even a friend out of the deal.

From our first meeting with her, we immediately hit it off and felt like we had known her for years so it came to no surprise that when it came time to do our engagement shoot, we felt confident and at ease under her direction. Now down the road, I am honored to not only call her our wedding photographer but a dear friend as well.

Alexandra's work speaks for itself. The moments she captures are honest, natural and organic. Her knack for making everyone feel comfortable is evident in the art that she produces. It is just an added bonus that she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. She deeply cares about her clients and is helpful throughout every step of the process.

No matter what life milestone you decide to book Alex to document, you will not regret it! I plan to have her in my life for a very long time both as a friend and a talented artist.

I found Alexandra's Instagram before getting engaged/married was even on my radar. I knew that she was the photographer who I would work with someday. I fell in love with her clean, beautiful edits that seemed to capture the essence of the moments she was documenting. Stylistically, I particularly loved her black and white photos-- to me they are very romantic, classic and elegant. Once finally engaged, we began communicating with Alexandra and she took the time to really get to know me and my fiancé. Through every step of the process, communicating with her was so easy; like talking to a friend who was genuinely interested and excited to be a part of this time in our lives. Anytime I had questions, she was very responsive through text or email. 

On the wedding day, our family and friends had nothing but praise for Alexandra. She felt like another friend on our guest list to us. When we received our gallery we were absolutely blown away. She captured the feeling of the day precisely including our joy and our guests' joy, which was so incredibly important to us.

Alexandra is incredibly talented. Leading up to the big day, she took time to get to know my partner and I, our story and what was most important to us on the day of our wedding. Alexandra goes above and beyond to provide resources to help with the entire wedding planning process, and makes herself available to support in any way she can, whether that be aesthetic questions about your decor or flowers, to helping you budget and prioritize her services.

The day of, I felt confident knowing Alexandra would capture the story of our wedding day in an effortless and natural way. She made me feel confident, relaxed and beautiful, and had the most positive, upbeat energy. Alexandra truly loves what she does. She provides a simple and easy image ordering and viewing service, that makes it a breeze to order prints or share with others.

She is a true professional who will document your day in a stunning and authentic way, she has a beautiful eye for telling a story, and I am so happy we chose her as our wedding photographer!

I am SO thrilled that I found Alex to shoot my wedding. As soon as I came across her instagram page, I knew her style suited me and I was praying that I would be able to make it work and book her. 

I am 100% uncomfortable in front of a camera and she made us feel so much better. I love the fact that she kept shooting no matter what we were doing, capturing all those candid moments. Those are the pictures I love the most because they are the most natural and real. 

Throughout the day, I had no idea she was capturing certain moments. It’s like she was hiding in the shadows, or a ninja. When we received our wedding images I was BLOWN AWAY.

I’m so happy and grateful to have found her when I did and that we can stay in contact through social media. I talk her up to anyone and everyone I know and will continue to book with her whenever the opportunity presents itself.
