I like to document everything, and view my work as a celebration of the magic of reality & humanity, highlighting the value of truth, universal fairness, social equity & inclusion.

I view every client as a friend & each job as a treasure hunt, my favourite moments are those where I can catch people being natural and truly enjoying themselves, that's the gold.

Stylistically, my photos are bright, clean, and classic - I like an image that can't go out of date. If it pleases you, I have a Diploma in Fine Arts majoring in Painting and Drawing, as well as a Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Photo Media from Sydney College of the Arts.

I would love to work with you on your wedding day or creating content for your brand/product/company! If you're interested in having some photos taken, please contact me by either filling out my contact form (found under the ‘enquiries’ section of my site), sending me a direct email using the provided address, or giving me a call :)

Looking forward to hearing from you!



We’ve spent all weekend staring dreamy-eyed at our amazing wedding photos. I’ve only now pulled myself away long enough to send you the biggest thank you imaginable!
The photos are completely sensational.
Not only that, but you were such a lovely addition to our day!
How much your photographer becomes part of your wedding day hadn’t crossed my mind before, and you are such a joy to be around. Thank you so much!
— Emily & Mark


"Hey Alex,
Thank you so much! We are absolutely thrilled. 
The photos are beautiful beyond words and you captured so many precious moments, so much love. We had such fun remembering the day and cannot wait to share them with our friends and family.
I sat there drinking tea, soaking up the incredible visual story you compiled for us, and had the best time listening to Liam's reactions - especially to the photos of us girls getting ready!
Apparently every time he turned to see my reactions my eyes were completely glued to the screen. 
A big thanks to your second photographer also! You were both such a fun and calming presence on the day, and such troopers in the weather.
One of my favourite memories of the day is clinging to and laughing with Liam on the gusty headland - and you captured that in such a breathtaking way.
We loved the natural look, the colour, the fact that you can tell we were wet, the quirky and artistic style of your work. 
We are so very happy with our choice and so impressed with your talent.
All the best to you Alex! We will enjoy following your work,
Heather and Liam Miller"

"Hi Alex,
Firstly both Frances and I wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing photos you took at our wedding, they truly are brilliant!
Looking through them is a real joy and brings back such wonderful memories of our big day together.
We've shared the download link with our families and friends and each one has commented how talented you are and the quality of your work is second to none, we are really grateful!
If you could send us your address we would love to send you some fun mail as a thank you, it'll be a nice surprise for when you arrive home from your world tour! 
We hope you're still having an amazing adventure and once again a massive thank you, we absolutely love the photos!
Matt and Frances

“In looking back over the hundreds of photos Alex took for our engagement shoot and on our wedding day, I’m so happy we chose her to capture our special moments.  A wedding day comes and goes in a beautiful blur but photographs catch those moments and hold them in time perfectly. Her clean, candid style did just this. Alex is a delight to work with; very easy-going but detail oriented enough to frame each shot creatively.  Our love as bride and groom came through in the photos she took and beyond that, those golden moments with guests at the reception party are pictures we will treasure and look back on when we are old and grey. Alex, we cannot thank you enough for shooting our wedding!  Highly recommend her superb and intuitive skills as a creative.
Amanda & Wally”

"Hey Alex,
We received our photos on Friday afternoon and it was the best way to start the weekend! 
Every time we scroll through the photos we find a new favourite or re-live another happy moment (I have spent hours reliving our wedding this weekend!).
It was such a pleasure working with you - we really enjoyed sharing the day with you.
Thank you so very much!
Lucy & Carl"

"Dear Alex,
Delighted to confirm that the photos arrived today, and they are gorgeous - absolutely stunning! We are very, very, very pleased. :D
Please send a big thanks from us to all of your team - and, of course, to yourself!
Going through the photos felt like reliving all the thrills and excitement and joy of the wedding all over again - we can't thank you enough!
Best regards,
