Hey there! You may see my name floating around as Alexandria, but you can call me Allie! I am so happy that you made it here and are interested in my work. I am a wedding, elopement and portrait photographer based in the Hudson Valley of New York. There is nothing that I love more, than love. I truly believe that love is the essence of my work, and that our sole purpose here on this planet is to love and to be loved, fiercely. To be able to capture love stories is truly such an honor. I love how each of my couples have a different dynamic that makes their love story unique; I am here for the big moments, little-in-between-moments, giggles, tears and everything in between.
The mountains, love letters and morning coffee. My better half, and our little fluff, Leo. Lakeside heart-to-hearts. Fall leaves, fireside chats, chocolate chip cookies, and chicken noodle soup. The ocean breeze and the sound of laughter. Flowers, especially peonies; Widlflowers too and how they're quirky and cute. Dogs, all animals really. Seeing strangers smile. The underrated feeling of holding someone's hand and a hug.
EXPERIENCE OVER PRODUCTION
I have grown up in the wedding industry my entire life, and before venturing deeper into photography, I began a wedding planning and design business upon my graduation from college. I come from a planning, design, and logistical background that gives me a cutting edge to understanding the grand scheme of my couple's wedding day. I am full of planning tips and tricks, and I have an eye for natural design. My work from my past planning and design business was featured on Carats & Cake, an internationally published wedding blog. I understand all aspects of planning an event, in great detail, and would be more than happy to shed some light on how to make your elopement or wedding authentic to your love story.
I invest all of my time, emotions and energy into every single project I take on. If you choose me to document your love and capture your love story, you are not just getting a photographer who will deliver some photos to you and never speak to you again... You are getting a friend and someone who genuinely cares about you and all of your emotions. I will become your biggest fan and the ultimate hype girl. I don't believe in overly posed photos, but rather capturing raw interactions and capturing moments as they naturally unfold. Whether I am hand-tying your bouquet, handing you a tissue, helping your elderly relative down the stairs, or sneaking you away from your annoying cousin; I am there, and happy to be.
I truly believe that photography is a way of making moments last for all of eternity. There is nothing more special than looking at a photograph and feeling the very same feeling that you may have felt in that very moment! If you are interested in honest storytelling...
