I believe that great cities and great loves
share many of the same beautiful complexities.
They both challenge and envelope us;
they endlessly fascinate us;
they’re dynamic, multi-faceted, and the really important ones
change us forever.
Some people like to connect with nature in order to chill out,
unplug, and feel at one with the universe.
To me, there is nothing better than walking down a city sidewalk, particularly New York City,
with nowhere to be.
I love being surrounded by millions of people,
their lives and stories.
And I love creating for couples and their communities
the visual preservation of their wedding day:
the images that become your memories of this awesome time
in your life together.
travel is an amazing privilege
I am so lucky to be able to travel. Connect with me if you'll be in these places, too!
I love photographing City Love portrait sessions all over the world.

ABOUT YOU TWO AND YOUR COMMUNITY
...And the best friggin dance party, ever!
You want your photography to be as genuine as possible. You don’t want to fake putting on your shoes for the camera, if you’ve already got them on.
You want the real-deal documentation of the day, with an editorial twist; an eye for details, architecture, and the small, candid moments between people that ultimately make a wedding celebration unique.
Your wedding is a celebration of the unique connection you two share; a celebration of your parents and chosen parents and grandparents; a celebration of your friends, your pets, your cousins, your neighbors; a celebration of the human bonds that sustain us, shape us, and mark our time on earth.
Plus: champagne. Old-fashioneds. That special family recipe cocktail that your uncle has made for years at gatherings...
If this sounds like what you're looking for in terms of your photography, let's talk!

kind words from clients
I have Alexis to thank for feeling present on my wedding day.
Her composure and vivacity are contagious. She's also so beyond organized and on top of things....
It's staggering to me that someone could be so warm, funny and artistic, and so organized and reliable!

My daughter and her husband hired Alexis to photograph their April 2016 wedding
and we were all amazed and delighted with the results! From the moment she arrived at our apartment
to photograph the getting ready process we were charmed by her upbeat, friendly, funny personality.
It was important to us that the photography not interrupt the flow and pace of the event
and Alexis managed to capture the joy of the celebration without ever seeming obtrusive or controlling.
The resulting photos are simply beautiful! Genuine smiles abound!
Not only would I recommend Alexis wholeheartedly, I hope to be able to use her talents in the future.
Her vibrant spirit illuminates every shot! You will not be disappointed!!

Alexis is phenomenal. I'd be just echoing all the great things other couples have said about her,
so I'll be brief: she made our day extraordinary. She's professional and has a great eye.
My wife pages through our wedding album once a week and remarks how the ceremony and reception felt like a blur.
I'm so grateful we had someone like Alexis there to capture it.
I can't recommend her and City Love Photography highly enough.
