About .: La Dolce Vita Wedding Photography :.Alina's Bio
Austin wedding photographer, Alina Prax, was born on the southernmost tip of the Swiss Alps and was fed a steady diet of languages and gruyere cheese. After moving to the States at the age of 6, her parents immersed her in a life saturated with art and culture. She attended Oberlin College where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in interdisciplinary performance with an emphasis on studio art.
Alina eventually moved to Berlin where her love affair with photography began. As time passed the longing for fast food and strip malls began to surpass her desire for foreign films. Alina moved back to the States, where she studied photography at the Art Institute of Colorado and fell madly in love with a Texan cowboy. These days, Alina lives in Austin where she makes her home with her husband, daughter and French bulldog, Lily.
Alina speaks 5 languages, has taken photos all around the world and will photograph just about anything on the promise of BBQ.
Having lived in several different countries, Alina has observed a variety of wedding celebrations.
"Weddings are unique from culture to culture," she says "yet they are always joyful and magical. People of all faiths and nationalities celebrate weddings with passion because a wedding is one of those milestone moments that demarcate a life passage.
"I adore the art of documenting weddings. I get to record a historic event that is both monumental for a couple and incredibly intimate. As a life historian, a scribe and witness to such a marked occasion I translate this joy into a visual legacy. It's a real honor."
A born & raised Texan, Chelsea got her start designing alternative weather wear for Ready Made magazine. Branching out from her design work into photography was a natural progression for someone with as keen a sense of style as this talented designer. The current icing on Chelsea's life is her passion for weddings and cupcakes. Really really BIG cupcakes! She is a blessing to LDV with her upbeat disposition and talent for capturing magical images of kids and documenting the most intimate of weddings.
Alluring, whimsical, enchanting, and timeless.
Our personal favorites, and those of our clients, are those spontaneous and unselfconscious images that capture all the genuine excitement, joy and romance of your wedding day.
La Dolce Vita specializes in boutique commissions which means we work closely with our clients and limit the number of weddings we shoot every year. By doing this, we are able to artistically process each image by hand. This means you will receive heirloom photographs that can be enjoyed for generations to come.
La Dolce Vita Photography is Texas' first green wedding photography studio. We are a certified carbon neutral business and purchase all of our power from Austin Energy's Green Choice program, which gets it's power from wind farms in West Texas. We use CFLs for lighting, reduce waste where we can, and recycle the rest.
In addition, we are committed to collaborating with other green vendors who share our philosophy and concern for the environment
We offer a line of environmentally responsible albums and books and our professional printing lab uses 30% pcw paper, are certified carbon-neutral, and uses none of the harsh chemicals involved with traditional photographic printing.
