Alex even took the time to scope out beautiful locations for optimal photo-taking opportunities. Since this duo is fairly local to my Husband and I, we definitely plan on using their services for future events such as photographing anniversary photos, our first baby, etc. We highly recommend Alex Arnold Photography if you are looking for high quality and expertise.

ized their care to us and our needs. We were so grateful to have them be a part of our wedding experience and highly recommend them to anyone looking to photograph a moment in time they want to remember. My favorite memory of working with Alex Arnold Photography was when we had a snag in our plans regarding a first dance: we wanted a private first dance, the venue we got married at didn’t allow dancing on the property for religious reasons, and Alex and his team helped us creatively solve this dilemma while honoring all parties involved - they took us off the property into a public space with a green background where we were able to share a fun first dance with our close friends around us. Everybody’s wishes were honored! Don’t hesitate to reach out to them - they’ll make your big day a total success.

Their innovative, collaborative, and creative approach to photos make you and yours feel as if you can relive it all over again, holding on to a moment you will certainly treasure for the rest of your lives. Hiring them was the world's best choice we could have made as far as wedding planning is concerned! The lengths to which they would go to get that perfect shot is a rare find and something that should be commended. Alex and Shannon's skills and professionalism were matched by their fun personalities to be around on our special day. Many of our guests also commented on how fantastic they both were during our weekend.
If you want natural, candid photos that capture a wedding in all its glory and beauty, then Alex is your man. We adore all our photos that he quickly had available for us to preview, and cannot wait for the rest to appear. Thank you so much for your time, efforts and spectacular work.
We'd also especially like to thank Alex for his support along the way, which has been quite a while considering our engagement photos were also done by him almost a year ago now!

Our post ceremony photos are stunning and we still get compliments today on them! And we were equally impressed with the reception photos; we were given hundreds of photos that documented the event and emotions of our special day. We love looking through our pictures and seeing the faces of every single one of our guests.
As for the big day, we wanted our pictures to be primarily candid, yet clean and professional. Also, we needed to stick to a strict timeline in order to still have light following our November evening wedding ceremony. Did I forget to mention we did not want to have “first look” photographs and requested to be back for the end of happy hour? We’re the absolute worst. Our photographers, including Alex, fulfilled all our requests and delivered breathtaking photos.
