ABOUT

POV: You just said the most tearful, joyful, and ecstatic “YES”! You are engaged, on cloud nine, and can hardly wait to spend forever with the love of your life. And, you are ready to begin planning the day you have always dreamt of. 
 
Your vision for the day is clear: it is one that aesthetically fills your romantic soul, is full of more joyfully teary moments, and is surrounded by your family and friends. Now, you just need to find the right photographer, who will deliver an exquisite gallery of images that captures every detail and moment that you are about to pour the next year plus into. 
 
This is where I come in and let me reassure you - I was also a bride. I also wanted timeless, romantic, destination engagement photos in our favorite city. I also wanted a photographer that would hear my ideas and take every detail into account. I knew that after our wedding day had come and gone, we would be excitedly waiting for the photos! And let me tell you, our photographer over delivered.
 
I am so thankful for the intimate, tearful moments she captured of my parents and I in the limo before walking up the hill to the chapel. I am so thankful for the shot of my dad and I walking into the narthex of the church, my cathedral veil blowing softly out the door. I love the look on my husband’s face and my in law’s standing next to him (it was the most perfect, tiny chapel). I am thankful for the candids our photographer captured of my grandparents with smiles and their eyes full of tears, and my parents casually holding hands. The first photo to be framed in our home was a brief second that our photographer looked over and saw me holding my husband’s face, bursting at the seams with love and pure bliss as his best man was completing his speech. 
 
As your wedding photographer, I also strive to over-deliver. I work to honor your vision, to serve you and your families, and to capture the intimate moments of love and joy, both curated and candid, throughout the day. I am an artist, a professional at my craft, a business owner, but I am also a wife, a mom, and was once, a bride, too. I care about the story of your love, your wedding day, and the joining of your families.

SERVING YOU ON YOUR

The Beginning of your Journey

Sean & Nicole

I've always wanted Alexis to take my pictures, even before my fiancé was in the picture! I love that her photos are bright, full of life, and natural beauty! Going into our engagement session, I was nervous that we wouldn't look natural and that ended up being the furthest from the truth. Alexis was able to capture the most natural smiles and the fun we had with her really showed!

Hiring Alexis to be our wedding photographer was the best - and easiest - decision we made in the wedding planning process. We intend to hire her for milestone events in the future. Alexis’ talent is beyond words. During our engagement photo shoot in Boston’s Seaport neighborhood, she literally stopped traffic for us to take a photograph while crossing the street. She coached us through it and the photographs turned out amazing. During the final session on our wedding day, not only did she make us look like vintage film stars, but she captured the essence of our passion, laughter, and love. In short, Alexis was able to capture “us” as a couple.

When our wedding day came around with light rain, Alexis was there with her red rain boots and let me borrow them for what turned out to be our favorite wedding photos! It is obvious that she has an eye for photography, but the quality of work is like nothing else we've seen - absolutely stunning. We are so grateful we met her and have now had the opportunity to work with her again as our little family has grown!

She was very accommodating and helpful with our families, captured special moments between our siblings and parents, each detail of the ceremony and reception, and made everyone feel comfortable during the portraits. She got the perfect shots with minimal posing involved! She really brought light to our special day with her positive energy, bubbly personality, and incredible work! We are so happy with our photos and our experience, and have recommended her to all of our friends since!
