Alex Z Photography
We loved Alex Z. Photography. We had met a number of photographers when we were looking around and immediately knew that Alex was a good fit. She is extremely personable and enthusiastic and very professional. Prior to the wedding, she clearly went through the day so that all we had to do was show up. Unlike other photographers we met with, she did not pressure us to go with any particular pacakages and was very upfront about the benefits and drawbacks of our various options.
Our wedding was in October and we were not disappointed. Alex was at the venue before anyone arrived. When I got lipstick on my dress, she was the calmest one in the room. Our wedding was in downtown Manhattan and Alex set up beautiful shots with the East River and bridges as the backdrop. She also made sure that we had all of the shots that we asked about.
We got our photos back last month and they exceeded our expectations. We received over 1,000 photos on a zip drive, making it very easy to share the photos with our family and friends. The shots are beautiful. Now, the challenge will be finding just 80 photos to include in our album.
I really can't say enough about the job that Alex did and highly recommend her.
Alex was amazing. Planning with her was super easy and she was very responsive to all emails and phone calls. Her package including a 1 hour engagement photo shot which was really helpful because it allowed both her and us to get to know each better and it got us familar with which types of shots we like best.
The day of the wedding went great. Alex was early on-site and helped keep us on track throughout the day. When my hair/make-up took longer than expected, she was easy-going and helped us reschedule the order of things without feeling too rushed. The pictures came out beyond wonderful. They are high resolution and the quality is amazing. I continue to get rave reviews about our photos. At the end of the day, all you have are your memories and your photos. Call Alex. Her photo journalistic style commenrates the story of the day.
Stop your search for a photographer here! I can promise you there will be no regrets. Alex will capture your special day with amazing talent, personality and resourcefulness. We couldn't be more grateful for the attention to detail, the exquisite shots and the grace of her presence at our wedding.
Alex was wonderful to work with -- she has a great eye and she was very organized and responsive throughout the whole process. We did an engagement shoot in NYC, which was so much fun and she got lots of great shots. And our wedding photos are really beautiful -- she captured the day perfectly. We have so many photos we love that we're having a heck of a time narrowing down what to put in the album! We've also received many compliments on our pictures, with comments such as "You had a really good photographer!" If you're looking for a photographer who will capture the moments of day as they happen (minus posed shots of the bride pretending to gaze out the window, pretending to share a laugh with her bridesmaids, etc -- I've witnessed such things when I was a bridesmaid), you won't go wrong with Alex Z.
Alex shot our wedding at Angel Orensanz in February, and we were thrilled with how everything turned out.
I don't think we ever realized Alex or her assistant were there the day of the wedding, but somehow we ended up with the most amazing photos. Alex was a pleasure to work with, both for the wedding and our engagement shoot, and my husband actually relaxed with her around. (Usually he freezes up in front of a camera.) We wanted natural photos, rather than posed shots, and we have images that look like US, versus a staged version of our wedding... no photos of us awkwardly holding the cake cutting knife or posing stiffly... just natural photos of us enjoying the moment. Some of my favorites (out of the more than 1300) are the spontaneous, photojournalistic pics she got.
Our wedding has since been featured on blogs, and the photos really look like something out of a magazine. I couldn't recommend Alex more highly.
Alex was such a pleasure to work with and my husband and I are so pleased that we chose her for our wedding. She was fun, friendly, and made us, but me especially, feel comfortable since I'm not a fan of having my picture taken. Each photo from our engagement shoot and wedding came out beautiful. She paid such attention to detail and caught each and every moment of our day. We were completely blown away when we saw the photos for the first time. I would recommend Alex to anyone that needs a photographer and would not hesitate to use her again for any events in the future!
DO NOT HIRE ALEX! We had the highest expectations of her and her follow through was poor. Why do you make us compile a list of “must have’“ pictures and not even take any of them? Why was I expected to follow you around throughout my reception and make sure you took pictures of details like the flower arrangements, signature drinks etc? Thanks for offering to take pictures of our rings and recreating the signature drink in your studio to make up for not doing your job the day of my wedding. But I did not want to have phony pictures in my album that I would always remember as fake. She was the one thing my now husband and I had the utmost confidence in and she is the ONLY thing that did not meet our expectations. If you want gorgeous pictures that you will always look back on think twice on hiring her. I definitely regretted it!
Alex Z was super professional, flexible and extremely unobtrusive during the day of the wedding. She was a pleasure to work with through all phases of the wedding planning, actual event and post-production. I absolutely love my photos-- they are so special to my husband and I and our entire extended family. I constantly look at them because they bring me such joy and immediately place me back in those memories. Snap her up now!
I hired Alex to shoot my wedding at Oheka Castle this August and she did such an amazing job. Worth every penny. Every pic looked beautiful, my husband and I looked especially good in the pics, which surprised my because I am usually not very photogenic. We came out looking like models, the other photos were like out of a magazine. Just amazing. I have been recommending her to all of my friends and everyone loves her, shes very down to earth and easy to work with. Never a problem with Alex, shes very responsible.
A completely unobtrusive photographer, Alex took thousands of photos and guests barely noticed her. She has a candid, informal style. If you appreciate artisic, non-traditional photographers, Alex Z. is perfect.

My photos look like they belong in wedding magazines. I couldn't be happier.
“We couldn't have been happier with your services. You were extremely
professional, very pleasant, flexible and reliable. You were discreet
during the wedding, but still managed to get fantastic shots. We were
thrilled with the finished product and especially love the unique
photo-journalistic quality the pictures have. Thank you for helping
make our special day so wonderful."
“Dear Alex, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our wedding day so perfectly! It was the Matron of Honor who wisely advised, "Find a great photographer because the day will fly by and all that will be left are the photographs." It was excellent advice and we are thrilled we followed it! To this day, whenever our wedding album is shared with friends or family, the response is always, "Wow! You make a gorgeous couple! You are so photogenic!" The secret to perfect wedding photos is finding a perfect photographer. We certainly found perfection in you, Alex. You really care about your work and it shows! You are truly phenomenal and we cannot thank you enough!”
“Dear Alex, After seeing a friend's wedding album, we knew we wanted you to photograph our wedding. You captured our wedding in the most beautiful way imaginable. You made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and you were truly amazing to work with! Everyone that has seen our photos has remarked how beautiful they are. We were so lucky to have had you photograph our wedding. Thank you so much for being a part of our big day”
“Dear Alex, during the vendor evaluation process, we found ourselves wondering if we would find the right photographer. Then we met you: Your photographs, your professionalism and your positive attitude were the perfect combination for our wedding day. We LOVE our photographs and will never tire of looking at them. Thank you for documenting our day with timeless images that we will cherish forever.”
“Dear Alex, We've only been married for six months and I have probably looked at each of your glorious images at least a hundred times. Thank you for capturing our wedding in the most meaningful, intelligent, and creative way. J.W. and I loved working with you from the first day we met you, and you were a terrific presence on our wedding day. I could not have asked for a more perfect day, more beautiful pictures, or a more talented photographer! Every bride should be so lucky.”
“Dear Alex ,
You are such a great photographer - unobtrusive, attentive, creative, accommodating, patient, the list goes on. The pictures are amazing and really capture each unique moment of our most special day from the ceremony to the subsequent celebration. We loved working with you and will most certainly be recommending you to everyone.”
“Alex, you were the perfect addition to our wedding day – we met with many photographers before booking you, and we went with you because we knew you would be inconspicuous, thoughtful and would capture each moment perfectly. We were not disappointed! We never felt you or your camera were intrusive, and yet you seemed to be everywhere necessary to catch each important detail.
Your talent and eye for good photography has given us a lifetime of memories we can look back at often, and we couldn’t be happier with the work you did for us. Even our guests raved about your demeanor and all of them loved the final product. I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly!”
“We just got back to the city and have seen the gorgeous photos.
Alex, you did such an amazing job. We're so happy with the images”
“We're having so much fun going through the photos- they're amazing!”
