The photos Alix took of our wedding are incredible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
She was amazing a taking both traditional wedding photographs and goofy/alternative/unique ones, capturing personality of the wedding and the people in it. Though Alix is great a melting into the background, she is also excellent at marshaling the crowd to get great photos out them them. All the candids she took are absolutely precious.
Just looking at her photos brings me right back to the joy I felt on our wedding day.
ALSO (bonus) she is great to work with. My husband and I only spoke with her a couple times on the phone before the wedding, so the first time we met in person was 30 minutes before the ceremony. Alix immediately felt like an old friend who fit into the day perfectly, making everyone completely comfortable. Guests came up to me during the wedding to tell me how awesome/cool our photographer was.
Basically, you can't do better than this lady!

I've had Alix bookmarked to review for months now. I've breezed through my other wedding related reviews, so I'm not sure why I've been procrastinating on this one. I think it has something to do with the fact that I highly doubt my unartistic self can adequately describe just how awesomely wonderfully beautiful Alix's pictures are. Seriously wonderful. We received SO many compliments on our engagement pictures and two friends actually booked her after seeing them! She took us - a normal looking couple - and made us look . . . .magazine worthy. But in a totally cool way - not stuffy magazine.
Not only does she have mad skills - but she is incredibly friendly. You have to be around your photographer ALL DAY for your wedding and so we really wanted someone with positive energy. Bless her soul, because Alix basically radiates positive vibes.
Plus, her prices are super competitive. While this definitely factored into our decision to choose Alix as our wedding photographer, after seeing our pictures I truly believe the work she does is priceless.
as in just do it. make it happen any way you can.
I had the pleasure of meeting Alix a couple of weeks ago, at my clients wedding.. Immediately, her smile exuded comfort. Not only did she display a professional attitude but unlike many wedding photographers, she was not intrusive or overbearing at her job. She made all our guests feel at ease, capturing the essence of our couple,the energy of their friends and the overall emotion of the evening. The final outcome was pretty amazing. L-O-V-E her photos!. She is based in Chicago but loves coming to the West Coast. AND she is very reasonable as far as fees, a plus in my book!
I recommend Alix wholeheartedly.

I don't think a Yelp review does justice to how great Alix is. My wife and I could not be more pleased with the results of the photos, and our overall experience working with Alix. It's now been a year since our wedding (this review has been long coming), and we still get the "wow" factor when we have friends look at the pictures.
The best part about Alix's work is how much she just blends in and becomes a part of the wedding. It doesn't feel like there are cameras in your face, and there's no awkward 4 hour pre/post wedding pose session where someone keeps telling you to scoot closer to even out the picture (unless you wanted that, I guess - she's great to work with, so if that's what you prefer, you'd get it). She puts her heart and soul into the work, and the results come out in the final product.
If you're planning a wedding, do yourself a favor and email Alix. You will not be disappointed.
