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 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


Caroline says my post-dinner playing is me just getting out of doing the dishes

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

My Whole Heart

Caroline & Landon

The two I enjoy life with.

Caroline: nurse, voracious learner, pup momma. Loves sparkles, showers our goddaughter Sophia with unicorn-themed gifts.

Landon: sheltie, leg-licker, floof-master. Fierce defender against trash trucks, total marshmallow for small humans.

Intention, timelessness, and authenticity are the heart of my photography
for couples madly in love
