Alexandria Hall Photography
I’m a reportage photographer. Essentially, this means I capture the precious moments of your wedding as they unfold naturally, rather than stage them. This creates real, emotive images and an honest visual narrative of your big day. I’m a great believer that a picture can tell a thousand words and I love being a visual storyteller.
I take a friendly, hands-on approach. It’s crucial to me that we get to know each other before the big day and that I determine exactly what you want – one person’s version of perfect is very different to another’s.
I meticulously plan in advance and love scoping out the venue behind closed doors. I make it my mission to find the unusual spaces, the undiscovered, wow-factor backgrounds I know will make a stunning backdrop.
On your big day, I’m naturally relaxed, warm and friendly and although I seamlessly blend in with the guests, I’m giving it my all behind the scenes. I discreetly get into all the nooks and crannies to capture the magic moments you may not see – a look, a hand squeeze, tears of joy or laughter.
I’m not afraid of some gentle ushering of your excited guests to nail those invaluable family shots – but I won’t domineer the pace. I’m quietly confident when suggesting an idea for an amazing shot, but I’ll never, ever impose it on you or interrupt a special moment. I work extra hard to make you and your guests feel at ease with me and in front of the camera.
Some photographers head home once the cake has been cut but I love to be at the party too, if you’ll have me. Everything I do is in pursuit of the perfect shot and I’ll always go the extra mile. It’s my way of doing justice to all the love, time and care you’ve invested into one of the biggest days of your life.
My photographic style…
As well as weddings, I specialise in fashion editorial, portraiture, commercial and architectural photography and you can see examples of my work here.
My diverse experience and fresh insight brings a contemporary perspective to my wedding photography. I love creating fashion-inspired photos that showcase all the exquisite details. My images are artistic, clean and timeless but always bursting with character.
I mostly shoot in colour, as I’m enchanted by the kaleidoscopic aspect of weddings. I’m also a black and white enthusiast – it can absorb a moment without any distraction and expose the lovely, raw moments.
I have a strong appreciation for composition and lighting and a great eye for detail. I appreciate historical or unusual buildings and exquisite architecture. Having said that, I’m an old romantic at heart and love a ‘moment’ to document. The giddy excitement of the getting ready party, the expectant look down the aisle from the nervous bride/groom that makes your heart skip a beat. The bubbling emotion of the ‘I Do’ right through to the party when everyone lets their hair down.
