documenting the real you

When you book me, you book more than just a vendor on your checklist. Think of me as a new friend, who supports you, celebrates with you and happens to take great photos. So please come to me as you are. Tell me about you and what love means to you. Tell me so I can photograph you and everything that is important to you. Tell me so I can capture moments that are priceless and true to your heart.

I am passionate about what I do, and I truly care about my couples. It's not about how I take photos, it is about YOU. The photos are about your stories and your legacy. 


Imagine having a dearest friend capturing your photos, who cares & knows exactly what matters to you.

The most meaningful moments come from the heart. I don't want to be some stranger come in here on the most special day of your life and tell you do things that you don't normally do.

Your memories deserve to be captured in an unfiltered way that bring back all the emotions and feels - small looks, soft touches, warm hugs, and so so much more of how love was shown. Getting your photos taken shouldn't be another formality on your wedding day, it should be fun & effortless.

ON YOUR

Drunk on love, joy and happy tears

WEDDING DAY

The most meaningful moments come from the heart. I'm not gonna make you do some cheesy shit that feels forced. No posing for a whole hour or no awkward half smiles. Your memories deserve to be captured in an unfiltered way that bring back all the emotions and feels.

Every single moment on your special day matters. I pay great attention to detail and I believe in capturing much more than photos, but the all the emotion and tenderness of your special day - That quick kiss at the dinner table, your dad wiping his tears in the corner or tucking that loose strand of hair behind your ear. All the moments that make your heart flutter.

This is probably your first time getting married, so planning a wedding or being at your own wedding can be overwhelming. Since I've been to hundreds of weddings, I am here to help. Whether it's helping finding your dream vendors or herding all your guests to a spot for group photos on your wedding day. I will be here to support & celebrate with you.

Let's be honest, when was the last time you got your photos professionally taken? A passport photo? LinkedIn Headshots? Wasn't the best experience ay?

Trust me, you are NOT awkward, you just got awkward photos taken. And your wedding day is going to be different, you will be surrounded by the best people that are there only for you. And that's when I come in and take photos of how weird and fun you are among your people. 

I believe trust, connection & communication create the best art. So I ask you to be open about all your ideas and trust me. When you hire me, you are getting the whole me, my brain & my creativity. (FYI my dog is not included in any of the package tho.) I don't create for, I create with. 

It's about how it feels like

Truth to be told, I’ve always struggled with defining my style, or labelling my photography with a certain word. I don’t stick to one specific style, because I believe that every couple's story is so different and it deserves more than just chucking a preset on. When you book me, you are getting the full me - my passion & creativity. 

I make sure that the way I’m interacting, shooting, and editing is reflective of who you are and how things actually felt. It’s a lot of small little things like this that go a long way. The artistic choices I make aren’t to benefit me because these are your memories, not mine. I focus on quality over quantity so we can create something together you’ll value forever.

" I would recommend Alena to anyone who's looking for a photographer. Alena & I became great friends even after the wedding, because we are both crazy about our animals, lol. Working with her was a breeze, LOVE our photos so much! "

" Alena made our wedding day. She is such a joy to be around and our photos are stunning! We had a little too much alcohol at some point during the wedding, but now it's so fun to look back at these funny moments. Thanks Alena! x "

" Our favourite photos are the ones that are spontaneous, little moments that we missed on our wedding day. It's like every time when we look back, we find something new & interesting. But seriously, we adore every single photo that Alena has taken. "
