Alex is THE BEST!! Seriously. We hired Alex a few months ago for our wedding and after our first meeting I was sold. Alex is not only an amazing photographer, but also a genuinely wonderful and beyond interesting guy! Having carefully reviewed (aka stalked) his previous photo... Read More shoots, I couldn't wait for our engagement photos! Alex was really helpful in choosing the location and deciding on outfits. He also sent us a guide for the day, which included advice and pointers on what to expect and made our job really easy! On our way to our destination, Alex told us our original spot was closed due to weather, but he was well-prepared with a backup plan. When we arrived at the new location, Alex and Lindsey had already scouted the new location and were ready to shoot...in 30+ MPH winds! I have to admit, when I saw/felt the weather, I was skeptical that I would a) survive the freezing cold in my dresses b) that the photos would be what we imagined given the cold, winds and a different location. I'm happy to report that I survived the cold and, most importantly, our photos turned out amazing!! Alex and Lindsey were so helpful in making the process run smoothly, which was important given the weather (I can't tell you how cold it was!!). Alex never once complained or seemed intimidated by the cold or insane winds. He constantly made us feel comfortable and made sure we were having fun!! The day was full of both amazing pictures and fun adventures with Alex and Lindsay! We were also celebrating my fiancé's birthday and Alex went above and beyond to document a surprise cake and champagne I brought to celebrate. Our photos are magazine/gallery-worthy! Alex turned the coldest, windiest (most otherwise miserable weather) day into a fun day that we will remember forever! I've gotten so many compliments on our pictures and am SO happy with the finished product! We can't wait for Alex and Lindsey to shoot our wedding!

We were so lucky that a friend of ours recommended Alex! We looked over his website and booked him almost a year in advance because we loved his work. From the first call to the finish photos he is truly the best professional I have ever worked with. His passion and eye for... Read More photography is like nothing I have ever experienced before. He met with us the day before the wedding and already had so many wonderful ideas of photos and areas he wanted to shoot. Being the first time I ever met him he was so easy and friendly to have around. Alex and his assistant Lindsay were so organized and the kept everything on schedule. We wanted to keep things tradition and not do a first look photo, this was difficult since my room was very close to where my husband was staying. Alex and Lindsay made sure that we both never saw each other and kept other guests from seeing me before as well. They really felt more like friends and everyone loved having them around. He captured all of our memories in the most fantastic photos. I gave him very little direction on what I wanted and he made our wedding photos a dream come true. I felt so comfortable with him and trusted his artistic approach. We got married at Mission Ranch in Carmel and he knew the area very well. He suggested that after the ceremony we take a quick drive to the Mission. Those photos ended up being my very favorite and I love looking at them over and over again. He made sure to capture every moment of our wedding from the rehearsal to the last song. The next day after the wedding he already sent us a sneak peek. We felt so lucky to have such an amazing photographer from our wedding. I would recommended him to everyone I know!!

Alex is a wonderful, professional, talented wedding photographer and is also just a genuinely good person. He really cares about developing a relationship with each of his clients and does not see shooting weddings as just a way to pay the bills. He truly loves his job and it... Read More shows. I felt like choosing a photographer was one of the most important decisions I had to make while planning the wedding, and we ultimately went with Alex because we connected immediately and I loved his photos. Alex will go the extra distance to make sure your wedding day is perfect. For example, Alex took the initiative to scout out our venue and the surrounding neighborhood for good locations to ensure that everything went smoothly on the day of. Driving all the way out to Joshua Tree for our engagement shoot was no problem. Staying an extra hour during the wedding day to make sure we got all of the photos we wanted was something he was happy to do. These are only a few of the big and small gestures that represent the kind of photographer Alex is. I admit that I can be the type of person who is a perfectionist and cares about every little detail and was worried on our wedding day about making sure all of the wedding details were captured. However, I felt completely reassured when Alex told me that "anything you paid for deserves a photograph" and that he was at our disposal for any additional photo ops we wanted with family and friends. He knows his way around a wedding and understands how important capturing the day in its entirety is. And by the way, did I mention that I could not be happier with our wedding photos! We did not get a videographer and I do not regret it for a second because Alex did a phenomenal job. The photos were a mix of classic, fun, dramatic, artsy shots...exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Alex to anyone; he will take note of what is important to you and run with it to guarantee you amazing photos. Thank you Alex!

When it came to planning I knew that the photos were a priority. Other gifts and items from that day may be lost, get broken, replaced etc. but photos last forever. They are the memories you get to keep from your special day and look back on during the lifetime you share with... Read More your partner. We wanted to invest in a top-rated photographer who will produce the best quality of work and that was Alex. Working with Alex was a dream! Alex was professional and efficient.

His assistant, who was with the boys, made my now husband feel comfortable and he enjoyed working with her as well.

He is very responsive to emails and texts, and is a good communicator throughout the whole process. We put total faith in Alex starting with our engagement shoot. When he suggested driving a handful of hours to sand dunes in the middle of nowhere, we were on board. We shot through high temperature, crazy wind, and sand in our eyes, but it was so worth it because the pictures are EPIC. After that, we couldn't wait for Alex to capture our wedding. Our wedding was just a few weeks ago, and Alex made us, our family, and friends comfortable in front of the camera. Plus, he is really good at managing his time, so we were able to get through our desired family shotlist pretty quickly (but with care!) so people could head to cocktail hour. Alex spent some extra time with my husband and me to make sure we got awesome photos of us in different locations around the venue. I'm so glad we did that because the photos look beautiful, and it's nice to have a variety. All of the photos - from the bridesmaids and groomsmen getting ready, to our first look, to the ceremony, to family photos, reception, details, and candid moments - really captured the spirit, beauty, and fun energy of the day, and I'm so excited to have these forever. Thank you, Alex!

Alex is meticulous in his craft, carefully honing every pose and editing every photo until he’s absolutely positive it’s up to his standards. During our engagement session, we spent a fun afternoon exploring the gorgeous Angeles National Forest, bonding over our mutual love for the Bay Area, shared tips on great places to eat, and climbing mountains to get “the perfect shot.” A little over 2 weeks later and we had the most amazing and beautiful photos sent directly to our email. We are floored by how magical our photos have come out, Alex’s usage of both digital and film was exactly what we were looking for in our photographer. I can’t help but want to share our photos with everyone and it’s because of Alex that we have these photos and memories that we’ll treasure for a lifetime.
