I'm Alexandra

I am a Cape Town born photographer, with a love for weddings and portraits! I feel it’s important to say a bit about who I am as a photographer, and then a bit about who I am beyond that.

I have photographed over 200 weddings since I started photography in 2014. It was a slow start, but it’s been a progressive build up to a solid business that I’m very proud of. I hate having my photo taken, so I take extra care to make sure people are comfortable and happy before having their photo taken. I believe firmly in having tangible and tactile elements from a wedding day, and giving a physical product to my clients is an important part of my packages as a whole.

I believe in treating people equally within the scope of my work. This is why you will find people of all shapes, sizes, colours and creeds on my website. I think it’s crucially important to be able to see yourself represented within your photographers work, to see how your skintone, hair colour or body shape is complimented within the photos. I am an LGBTQ+ friendly photographer, and I try to advocate for the community in my industry as much as I can.

When I’m not taking photos, editing or doing admin you can find me in many other places! I am a serial hobbyist of anything I can possibly try.

I love to craft and DIY - I’ll basically give anything a go at least once. My motto is “How hard can it be?” (Which doesn’t always end well, but those projects are safely shoved into the back of the cupboard and never spoken of again)

Balance is key for me – while I love to learn and read about new and interesting topics, I also love a good bit of trashy reality TV.

I love all things vintage and antique and you can often find me in second hand shops sourcing home décor, clothing or even photo props. My house is a treasure trove of trinkets. I’ve always loved old family photos, and could spend hours looking through them all.

I have 2 older sisters who I adore. We talk every day, and they are my closest friends and confidants. I wouldn’t be half the person I am today if it weren’t for their influence.

I have been with my partner, Dennis, since 2010. He is an exceptionally hard worker and a dedicated civil servant in his job as a Firefighter. We are lucky that both our schedules are equally crazy, so it means many dates on random Tuesday mornings to the movies.

I volunteer at an animal rescue in Cape Town, fostering and doing admin. It’s extremely rewarding and extremely hard.

Because wedding days are especially long days, and the only person you’re spending all day with is your photographer, I believe in meeting up before booking to see if I am the right fit for your day. You’ll get a feeling of who I am, my expertise and whether I’ll fit right in with your family and friends.
