I come from a family of professional photographers, so the bar was set pretty high for me to find someone great. My husband and I knew we didn't want the same old/same old wedding photos, but wanted to find someone who understood our style and would let it shine. Alexa was all that and more. We met with her before we decided to book her, and knew not only from looking at her work but from meeting her that she was "The One." She was flexible, friendly, and never over-bearing, but rather worked her magic while the day continued on its way. All the little moments she captured and special details she noticed that were so important to us are immortalized in the BEAUTIFUL photos we will cherish forever. I was so worried about how some of the locations we had to work with would turn out in photos (hello, dingy hotel room) but she not only made them look AMAZING, she made them feel so very "us." Choosing Alexa for our big day was the single best decision we made in the planning of our wedding.

Alexa of Bright Bird Photography is amazing! She has a natural talent, and was incredibly easy to work with. She took great photos, spent a lot of time with us finding the perfect places to take our photos. They say that the photographer is the person you spend the most time with at the wedding, and that is true; which makes the photographer choice so important. Well, we could not be happier with Alexa - she was prompt, professional, friendly, and most importantly, did an amazing job taking photos. She went above and beyond, and provided us with beautiful pictures.

Alexa is an amazing professional! She truly has a gift in photography which shows through her professional demeanor and her ability to give off a calmness throughout the whole process. During our engagement, my fiancé and I were kind of nervous but once we got started with Alexa, we began to relax and truly enjoy the day. Alex really knows how to put a couple at ease and really capture the most intimate moments without even realizing she is! We were so excited about how awesome our engagement pics came out! We cannot wait to see how amazing the pics will be on the day of. We know Alexa will meet our expectations and then some! I whole heartedly recommend Alexa for any special occasion!

Alexa was amazing to work with! We wanted to have a photo journalist style of pictures with a few traditional posed pictures with family. Alexa delivered just that.

We bought a package with her, and she was flexible with us on getting rehearsal dinner pictures instead of the traditional engagment. This allowed her to meet our nearest & dearest, which made it easy for her to get to know our families more & capture naturaly & effortless pictures on the day of the wedding.

We did not have a wedding planner, so she was great to help coordinate our group pictures. During our our non-posed pictures-- she really was a fly on the wall, and was able to capture the energy of the day. I've received nothing but compliments on the quality of her photography, and so happy we booked her!

Hiring Bright Bird Photography was without a doubt the best decision I made regarding my wedding. Alexa was absolutely amazing at capturing the feel of my wedding and I truly believe she did so.

The photos are simply stunning, and all of our guests who have seen them comment on their beauty and quality. Alexa was incredibly professional, timely and an overall joy to work with. I hope to have enough life event in the future to use Bright Bird again! Sincerely she is the best in the field!

I would give 10 stars if I could. Alexa was absolutely amazing and I could not be happier with how the pictures came out. She was totally unobtrusive during the reception but managed to capture every special moment of the night. From the minute she walked in the doorway to my Mom's house to start taking pictures of all of us getting ready the morning of the wedding, Alexa was a total professional and was also so much fun to be around. She made everyone feel super comfortable, and even wound up driving me and my maid of honor to the ceremony site at the last minute when we were having issues fitting everyone into one car! I got comments from so many people at the wedding about how great their interactions with Alexa were, and how hard she was working. The photos totally surpassed my (already high) expectations. Oh --- and I should mention that Alexa had actually just gotten married herself ONE week before my wedding, but she was still totally on top of everything and made time to talk with me on the phone about my expectations several days before the wedding to make sure I felt comfortable with everything. Best photographer ever!!!!

Alexa was amazing! We could not be happier with our experience with her on our wedding day. All of our photos are absolutely stunning, we continue to receive countless compliments whenever we show them to people. She also shot our rehearsal dinner and was extremely flexible when speeches ran over her original scheduled time. Probably the best thing about working with Alexa that I didn't even appreciate until after the wedding, was that she knows how to insert herself seamlessly into the events of the day. Both she and her assistant seemed nearly invisible for a large portion of the night, but still managed to capture everything on film. Every time I look back at the pictures, I feel like I am reliving that day, which is exactly what I had hoped for. Alexa is worth every penny!!
