Hi! I’m Alex, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Oklahoma City. I accidentally stumbled into photography while in college... You see, I was taking an intro class simply out of necessity as an elective for my declared PR major. At the end of the semester, we were assigned to document something and tell its story with a photo essay. I redid this assignment 3 times before landing on one I liked, which was completely out of my comfort zone. I eventually received my graded project with a handwritten note that read: “I hope you continue to keep telling stories." Well, I did -- and here I am. I would later graduate from the University of Central Oklahoma with a BA in Photographic Arts, under the tutelage of two renown, innovative, and incredibly inspiring professors. Along with shooting weddings, I continue to refine my skills and knowledge by pursuing further education via conferences, lectures, and books from the greatest photography minds past and present. And although this was never my plan, I have now officially stepped into the role of educator myself. From guest teaching in a classroom setting at UCO, to demonstrating on-location posing, to speaking at conferences such as PhotoCon and Photo Expo. Let me tell you, it's probably a relief to all my friends and family that I now have an actual outlet to talk about anything photography/LR related. (I really love talking shop.) Photography is my life, and I'm continually in awe that it's also my career. Everyone wants their dream job, and I can truly say I have mine. [Oklahoma Wedding Photographer]

Born and raised in Texas but addicted to travel and shooting small-ish, untraditional weddings all over. Husband. Father. Coffee snob. And I dig all things Seinfield related. I started working as a freelance photographer in 2002 for 2 local news papers and 1 local magazine in my hometown. That time working for those publications helped me learn how to watch and wait for moments to unfold. I approach each wedding as its own unique and original event. No preconceived plans. No cookie-cutter ideas for your wedding day. Just honest moments being photographed undisturbed. My 3 children give me lots of practice photographing life as it unfolds before me in unpredictable fashion. I believe it is in those moments that true beauty is found. That's why I don't believe that I need to try and control your wedding day, but rather let the day unfold without interruption. It's the honest moments you are going to reflect on with true emotion, not the staged and posed. Be real, because life is too short not to be. [Dallas-Fort Worth Wedding Photographer]
My work as a photographer began back in 2008 as a sports photography intern at Getty Images. As a freelancer, I covered baseball, football, basketball, rowing, tennis, and motorsport. My experience at Getty sharpened my eye for composition, light, and timing. The technical challenges were amazing, but as time passed, the nature of the work became impersonal and systematic. Another touchdown, another home run, another victory lane… I was just one of a gang of photographers trying to capture the same moment. I felt like my life’s work was becoming a commodity. I growingly became frustrated and disillusioned with my professional journey. Something had to change. Then it hit me. How can I be truly passionate about my work when I don’t have any personal connection whatsoever with the people that I'm covering? As a sports photographer, I was always at arm's length from my subjects – leaving me without the ability to truly relate to what they were feeling. At that moment I knew I wanted to work one-on-one with my subjects. There is something so gratifying about capturing two people madly in love, handing them the images and then hearing how their experience brought them even closer in their relationship. This is the joy that wedding photography brings me and it is why I have chosen to dedicate my life to this work. It would be an honor to hear from you! [Los Angeles Wedding Photographer]
