looking for an all-encompassing photography experience?

you can expect kindness, creativity, & expertise

Here’s the thing: wedding photos are so much more than pretty couple portraits or a *smile for the camera* feel. Photos have the ability to transport us back to a moment. They bring back what it felt like to be in that moment. Images bring our memories to life. Photos bring our memories to LIFE. 

And that is where I come in. Feeling like yourself in the images makes your memories even stronger. Not only will you be in capable, kind hands but have someone who will make you feel like Beyoncé all day and more like an old friend versus a stuffy photographer.

you deserve the most beautiful photos of your biggest moments.
and to have fun + feel amazing while they're being taken.

here's how we'll make it happen:

Photos that feel as good as they look

Because you deserve photos that you love to look at and love to remember

One thing bridesmaids tell me ALL the time is, “I love my wedding photos. But I hated my wedding photographer.” Even with the most beautiful wedding photos in the world, there will ALWAYS be that “but” if the photographer brought a negative presence or didn’t care. Which is why I take my job SO seriously!

Worried about feeling posed like a Barbie or being forced into cheesy prompts? Not with me as your photographer. You can expect fun prompts and loving direction to ensure you feel relaxed and truly yourself in front of the camera.

Scared of having a photographer that feels like an outsider on such an intimate day? Never. You can expect me joking with your sassy uncle during family photos or bonding with your grandma about how gosh damn beautiful you look in her wedding veil. I come in feeling like another guest, not a stuffy photographer.

From setting reminders on my Apple Watch for your timeline to ensure you’re not feeling rushed from event to event, to having screenshots of your Pinterest wedding board on my phone so all the photos are captured just as you envisioned, you will not only have someone who cares about taking good photos but is deeply invested in your wedding experience.

consistent communication

by your side from start to finish

There’ll be no “book and run,” where you only hear from me when it’s time to pay your invoice (gross). Here’s what you can expect when it comes to our communication leading up to your wedding:

  1. You’ll choose how we talk (texts, calls, emails, gifs/memes — you name it!)

     

  2. 24 hour response time (but usually sooner)

     

  3. We’ll have scheduled touch points for planning (like mapping out your engagement session or creating your wedding day timeline)

     

  4. About 4 weeks before the wedding, we’ll grab a drink or hop on a FaceTime to talk through the logistics after you complete my in-depth wedding questionnaire to ensure I am clued up to every aspect of your wedding and what you want captured

     

  5. Come wedding day, you will feel like you have an expert friend by your side. From the moment I show up to you getting ready with all the hype woman vibes, to having alerts on my Apple Watch to ensure you’re never rushing through the day, to bringing that natural smile out of you with lots of jokes and excitement, you’ll have that perfect blend end of joyful energy and organization so your day feels like a celebration from start to finish.

     

  6. Within 48 hours, you’ll have sneak peeks from your wedding so your Instagram announcement is a beautiful photo of your first kiss and not the grainy iPhone pic your mom took from the first row. 4-6 weeks after your wedding date, you’ll receive your full gallery of photos edited in a mix of color and black+white so you can completely relive the day.

     

  7. More of an old soul and want to get those photos off your phone? I’m here to help you bring your very favorite images to life— whether it’s helping you design a custom wedding album or ordering wedding prints for your parents.

"The thoughtfulness and love she had for me as a bride was so comforting."

"I just need to give a moment of silence for Alexandra Burt Photography. Because she - KILLED - our engagement photos, wedding photos & is one of the greatest people I’ve ever met. Her personality is so unique & after working with her, I couldn’t imagine having anyone else take photos for our special day. Since the moment I asked her to be our photographer, she was constantly willing to help with what I needed. Confused on how to even start planning? Don’t worry she has an organized spreadsheet that she’ll give you. Not sure what to wear for engagement pics?? Oh....she has a guide on how to make those decisions & what will look best for your photos. The thoughtfulness & love she had for me as a bride was so comforting. Alex was very responsive whenever I had a questions.....and I had A LOT (like a lot). All I have to say is, Alex exceeded my expectations, produced amazing photos, and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I’ll never be able to thank you enough!!"

-Haley Bowman, 2020 Bride

"you offer an experience of inclusion, warmth, & hospitality."

“I didn’t want the moment to pass and not share how grateful I am for the professional services you provided over the weekend at Abbi and Noah’s wedding. Thank you. The images, memories, you captured are wonderful and match the experience you offer of inclusion, warmth and hospitality. For that, I’m equally grateful. I’m sure you hear similar things from others, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t share them with you.”

-Andrew Dale, 2018 Father of Groom

a guiding hand along the way

where creativity & expertise meet

The one thing I tell all the couples I work with? “You’ve never done this before, and I don’t expect you to do it all by yourself.” 

After shooting 75+ weddings and planning my own in 5 months, I have an arsenal of real-life experience, tactical tips, and creative ideas to share with you about what to expect for photography + how to best prepare when it comes to planning your wedding.

Here are some ways I make myself and this knowledge accessible to you:

  1. Blog posts with planning tips

     

  2. Private Facebook Group for Alexandra Burt Photography Brides (for sharing quick updates, vendor recs, and planning tips!)

     

  3. Accessible wherever, whenever (want another set of eyes on the outfits you chose for your engagement session? Need to make a last minute change to your wedding schedule? No problem.)

a photog that feels like an old friend

making you feel as majestic as Beyoncé

Just look at the reviews: it won’t be long before I’ll have you laughing like we’ve known one another forever. You can trust my extroverted, bubbly personality, dad jokes and genuine affirmation to take care of that! With a natural extrovert by your side who thrives on meeting new people, you’ll have a photographer who will rock your portraits by making you feel like the real you while also making your grandmother laugh to capture the personalities and connections of all your loved ones.

"we spent an hour with her and felt so comfortable, like we could have known her forever!"

“Every second from meeting Alex was so laid back and relaxing. My fiance and I had never met her, spent an hour with her and felt so comfortable, instantly like we could have known her forever! We thoroughly enjoyed every second of it and I am in love with what she captured. Everything we asked for was in our gallery and much, much more! She genuinely was interested in us and what we needed and there wasn't a moment that went by that we did not feel it."
