About Alex Schon


Why hello there!

Growing up, I wanted to be an astronaut. I still do. But somewhere between learning calculus and graduating college as a mechanical engineer, I found my dream job (and it didn't involve riding on rockets.) Being a wedding photographer is not only my passion, but it's my choice.

I love finding your backstory, and bringing that out in photos. The way you two hold hands? That you notice how his eyes crinkle when he laughs? That no matter what life throws at you, you know you'll stick it out together?

THAT'S what I photograph. That's why I'm not on the first rocket Elon Musk can build to go to Mars (and because I've seen The Martian and how lonely would that be?) That's why I love my job, and can't wait to hear your story!

A few of my favorite things...

Navy Bespoke Suits

There's nothing quite like the gentle roll of a perfectly tailored lapel or an intricate Milanese buttonhole

Ice Cream

Moose tracks, mint chocolate chip, or good 'ol vanilla bean

Old Homes

They just don't make 'em like they used to. All that hand-cut stone, perfectly imperfect woodwork? Yes please


Told you I wanted to be an astronaut

The Office

"Me think, why waste time say lot word when few word do trick?"

Penguins, Hedgehogs, and Pups

You do have a heart, right? What's not to love?

White Burgundy

Drink with scallops, duck, chicken, pasta, or a Netflix marathon

About Michelle


Hello! I’m Michelle.

At 15 years old, I found photography while studying fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. I distinctly remember seeing light fall on drapery, and having an urgency to preserve that luminous moment in time. Soon, my subjects grew to include editorial work, and then couples together. In this journey, I fell in love with capturing beautiful, genuine moments.

I believe in real moments and creating images that are itching to be printed, placed behind antique frames, and hung on walls for years to come. I believe in enjoying your anniversary and building a special tradition around your wedding day.

I strive to create timeless images that showcase the testament of your love story.

My Whole Heart

Caroline & Landon

The two I enjoy life with.

Caroline: Cardiac Nurse Practitioner, voracious learner, pup momma. Loves sparkles, anything blue-and-white, and cherry pie. Showers our goddaughter Sophia with unicorn-themed gifts.

Landon: 90% Sheltie, 10% Rough Collie, 100% floof-ball. Leg-licker and fierce defender against his arch nemeses: squirrels, deer, and other backyard visitors. Will do anything for one more treat - especially if they're carrots.

Intention, timelessness, and authenticity are the heart of our photography
