Alex (literally) had us at hello. He is such a bubbly, genuine guy, the kind of person who exudes pure positivity, who makes you smile by just looking at him. From the first e-mail exchange we had, we knew he was the one. We were instantly drawn to his natural, candid style in photographing people (and of course, the high quality professional aspect too), and it was exactly what we were looking for in our wedding pictures. It was really important that we didn't end up with unnatural, posed photos. We asked Alex to shoot our engagement pictures a few months before the wedding, and they turned out amazing. Our wedding photos, which we just got a few weeks ago, are even more amazing. He managed to capture the most important moments of the biggest day of our lives in the most natural way possible. We will cherish his photos forever. Alex is extremely professional, patient, trustworthy, and has an eye for detail. He's a natural, he was born to do this. Thank you Alex once again for capturing the best day of our lives! - Sandra & Jimmy
Stephen & Sidney | 2015/10/30 | Proposal Photos
On Friday, October 30th 2015, I got the absolute surprise of a lifetime! My parents and brother were in town (Burlington, VT) for the weekend to visit our new home away from home. We had planned to take a day trip to Montreal to site-see, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and catch up with one another. Little did I know Alex and Stephen had been working together via email to plan out the perfect (and I mean PERFECT) execution of documenting Stephen's proposal. I'm of course tearing up writing this because I honestly could not have asked for a more amazing memory.
Afterward, Stephen showed me all the correspondence he had with Alex. The professionalism, fun spirit, and of course spectacular photography shown in our experience with him was top notch! Alex did everything from scoping out the area beforehand to showing pictures of the area the year prior on the same day to Stephen so he knew what to expect. The amount of time and efforts Alex put in was so genuine and admirable! It was not stagey- he just let us talk and be US! It really shows in the photos and everyone is already telling us you can just see US, our personalities, and relationship shine in them. He was a very fun, positive, natural photographer and I could not have dreamt of more amazing engagement pictures! Having them in such a picturesque location, knowing the expressions on all our faces were from those exact moments, and being able to look back on his beautiful photography the rest of our lives is such a blessing! Thank you so much for creating such amazing art that will remain in our home and hearts forever! We might just have to fly you out to capture the wedding too! :) - Sidney
My girlfriend, her family, and myself were set to take a day trip from Burlington, VT to Montreal. I had a ring and was ready to propose but I knew Sidney would want the moment captured. That's where Alex came in - I sent him a note two weeks before the big day. He replied back quickly and over the next two weeks he was a huge help - planning a surprise proposal in a place you've never been on short notice is not as easy as I thought and Alex worked with me though my numerous requests and questions and made me feel comfortable. Everything went off without a hitch, she said yes! And the photos look amazing! Alex was able to capture our excitement and his style made us feel extremely comfortable, especially considering Sidney had no idea! - Stephen

Getting photographed by Alex is a wonderful experience. He genuinely cares about getting your best shots and will gently direct and coach you between snaps to ensure you'll look your best, yes, but also look relaxed, natural, and like YOU. He is professional, prompt, and courteous. You'll feel at ease and guided through the whole process - never left in the dark about what's going on. Towards the end, Alex showed me the shots he had taken so far and we narrowed down together the ones we liked most. This was a great opportunity to get an idea of the types of shots I still wanted to capture - and Alex understood right away and helped me capture the missing "faces" in the last part of the session. The resulting photographs were varied and captured a range of authentic emotion. Alex works fast - you'll get proofs in no time and almost as soon as you've made your final selection, Alex will have them ready. On top of everything else, he is an interesting and sincere person. Thanks Alex! - Alina
Reyhanne | 2015/11/04 | Portraits
J’étais à la recherche d’un photographe de portrait qui puisse immortaliser, dans l’espace d’une simple photo, l’individualité d’une personne. Ce qui m’a interpellé dans le travail d’Alex est l’intensité des émotions qui transparait dans chacune de ses photos, surtout le fait qu’il sache capturer un moment intime. Consciencieux et attentif, Alex a une approche de la séance de photo que je qualifierai d’holistique: de son écoute des besoins, de la saisie de toute la complexité de la personnalité, de l’offre d’un cadre agréable, à la réalisation même des photos. Ce fut un véritable plaisir et un honneur qu’Alex soit l’artiste qui m'a accompagné dans ma démarche. - Reyhanne
Tessa & Alex | 2015/11/28 | Wedding
For anyone seeking a professional photographer, we enthusiastically recommend Alex as highly as possible - his photography was one of the brightest highlights of our wedding, and gave us hundreds of amazing memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.
Alex was very generous with his time, and went above and beyond to made things easy and seamless for us. He was the perfect blend of professional and friendly, attending to every detail behind the scenes while providing a warm and helpful presence throughout. Out of all of the logistical elements of our wedding, photography was the one we worried about the least - one of Alex's many talents is his way of helping you not realize that what photographers do is very difficult!
Alex's photos are simply outstanding: he is truly a 'people photographer', capturing the very best of a person in each shot. He can get great results out of very challenging lighting conditions - we had no idea that our reception venue was so difficult to shoot in, and only found out later by reading a helpful blog post Alex had written to advise other photographers planning to shoot in the same location. This speaks to many different aspects of what makes Alex great: his product is second to none, he makes the whole experience worry free, and he's always looking to help others whenever possible. Alex gets ten out of ten stars from us. Thanks again! - Tessa & Alex
Özgür | 2015/10/10 | Portrait session in the studio
I approached Alex for the reason that I was looking for a portrait photographer, in the interest of having better profile pictures for my professional life. Among all the portfolios I went through, Alex stood out with his sincere approach, artistic quality, and professional yet natural outcomes that felt like the right fit immediately. Not only Alex helped me to have a series of portraits that hit the spot, I had great banter throughout the session. One aspect I particularly liked, and the key reason why I would recommend working with him is his commitment to bring the best out of his subjects. - Özgür
If you want great pictures, an attentive photographer that has evident passion for what he does, then Alex is your guy. From the first time we met him, we knew he was the photographer for us. It's important to find someone that is able to bring out the essence of your relationship and translate them into pictures. We couldn't be happier with every part of the process. Alex is a true professional, I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone needing a photographer. - Farbod
Alex is a very devoted photographer. You feel his motivation to capture everything that is dear to your heart on your special day. Two staff members made my day unforgettable: my florist and my photographer. Alex was amazing during our engagement shoot and even more wonderful on our wedding day. He multitasks, backs up his photographs many times to make sure nothing happens to your memories, he runs around to capture it all with 2 cameras on his belts. His attention to detail and devotion make him an exceptional photographer. - Anne-Claire
Bryn, Chris & Family | 2015/06/02 | Graduation Photos
Alex took pictures of my family and I following my undergraduate convocation ceremony. It was a lovely experience! After deciding to hire a photographer to commemorate the special occasion, I found Alex’s website. I really liked the simple outdoor lighting, “fun vibe”, and natural aesthetic. I think the most appealing aspect about the images he captures is that he celebrates the “in-between moments”. My favourite pictures from my graduation day are happy smiles with my grandmothers, tickles and giggles with my boyfriend, and my goofy dad’s lopsided grin. Those “imperfect, un-posed” silly times are, in my opinion, what his photography is all about: celebrating people’s uniqueness in real-life moments. Alex was great to work with. He was totally sweet and adorable. Furthermore, on the business side of things, he delivered excellent quality photographs in a timely manner. I couldn’t recommend him more! - Bryn
