Alexandra Daley-Clark Photography

Where to begin? Alex is professional, talented, organized and poised. Yet, somehow she has this presence about her that makes you feel like you have known her for years...or even that you wish you had. My husband and I are not very comfortable in front of the camera, thank goodness for our included engagement session with Alex a few months before the wedding - this was like a well needed practice run for us. It was really nice to learn from her what was expected from us and how to be more comfortable in front of the lens.

By the time our wedding day approached, we didn't even realize we were in front of the camera most of the time. Alex felt like any other guest and most of the time we didn't even realize she was there. She's not afraid to ask a little of you for a great shot...like having me hike in a pair of 4 inch heels up some huge rocks on the beach for an awesome shot of our entire wedding party over the water. What a great shot that turned out to be.

I didn't cry at the wedding (except during my sister/MOH's speech) but I can tell you I have already shed some tears just looking through the photos Alex took of our day. Her photos truly capture the moment and allow you to relive it. The wedding day flew by so fast and there were so many moments and details that I had already forgotten about...looking through the photos Alex took of us allows us to really soak it all in.
Her work is amazing. If you are looking for more than the traditional posed shots and really want someone that can capture the details with shots that tell a story, then Alex is your gal.

Oh...not to mention the fact that we already had a gallery of 250 photos available to view online less than a week after the wedding!

Alex, if you are reading. You are truly talented and your photos will be treasured by us forever. Thank you so much!

The reviewer that states that Rosa is the nicest person alive isn't joking! This woman is amazing. After 3 fittings she took my dress in 2 dress sizes, removed a ton of extra fabric from a dress with 5 layers of material on the skirt and did it all with a smile the entire time. She's the sweetest woman that does what she does because she loves it and she's talented!

Her prices have to be the most reasonable in the state, but it's certainly not because she compromises on quality! She did an amazing job...my bustle was beautiful!

If you live in Southern Mass, anywhere in RI or even northern CT...call Rosa! You won't be sorry!

There really are no words to describe how friendly, responsive and accommodating the Portsmouth Country Club was during the wedding planning stages. They allowed me to visit the venue on a few different occasions to take photos or ask more questions, etc. Planning from 2 states away was sometimes a pain and the clubhouse managers Kevin and Sue did everything they could to make it all as painless as possible. Everything they promised, they delivered. There were no issues, no mis-communications, no errors, no disappointments. The wait staff was wonderful, all courses of dinner were served swiftly and the food was FANTASTIC. Our guests are still raving about the scallops, shrimp cocktail, crabcakes (I was told by more then one guest they were the best they've ever had!) and the filet. Everything was cooked perfectly and the presentation was quite nice with the asparagus wrapped neatly and beautiful flower in the center of each plate. We choose the highest package they offered which included 6 passed hors d'oeuvres and a fruit/cheese platter during the cocktail hour, 4 course meal, and open bar. I think for the level of service we received the price was very competitive, especially for the Seacoast area! I can not speak highly enough about Kevin and Sue...they are fantastic. They truly seem to enjoy what they do and they go the extra mile to make sure everything is just right for their clients. Kudos to you Portsmouth Country Club...we are extremely satisfied! Thank you so much!
