if you're looking for those standard wedding photos, or are looking for a budget photographer. we may not be the best fit. my clients are people who love memories and value photography. they are people who love love and are excited about the wedding, but are even more excited about marriage. they are people who don't mind getting their dress dirty to get that once in a lifetime shot. who value the in-between moments, who love adventure and spontaneity, who aren't afraid to break from tradition and put their personality into their wedding, and are most importantly people who are excited as heck to celebrate their love with those that mean the most to them.
if this is you, then we are a match made in heaven, and i will do whatever i can to make this experience the one you've been dreaming about. my goal as your wedding photographer is to not just get to know you guys, but quite literally become friends, so I can tell your once in a lifetime love story authentically, you know, the way you want it to be told. i strive to provide you with all the tools to make your wedding day a success. from guides to timelines to a super rad turn around time, and fun surprises in-between, its my priority to put you first. to live up to this promise i make to all my awesome couples, i only take on a limited amount of weddings and elopements per year, so you get the best of me.
you see to me, it's more than just photographs, it's building a relationship, it's celebrating when you send me your "i just bought my dress text,' giving you the low down on the best vendors for the job, plotting out an engagement session location that is as equally cool as it is meaningful, it's helping with boutonnieres and fixing veils, saying yassss queen and perfect a million times because that is what you are, it's making sure your make up game is strong, and that if you ever need a drink i got you covered, and most importantly making sure you have the best day ever. from the moment you book with me, to the moment you receive your custom photo gallery i walk you through each step of the alex lasota wedding process to ensure you know exactly what to expect and when to expect it. my promise to you? it's not just photographs, it's an experience.
real reviews from real rad people
"I highly recommend Alex! I was so lucky that my sister introduced me to her earlier this year when I was looking for a wedding photographer. One look at her photos and I was sold! I was so lucky that I snagged her last date in August and it was truly fate! Alex not only made me feel so beautiful and relaxed on my wedding day, but she made me feel so confident and comfortable with all the ways she connected with me before hand. As a “vendor” she is top notch. Not once did I ever feel anxious while working with her. And most importantly, she has given me memories that will last a lifetime. Every time I look at my photos I think, “wow, is that me?” I didn’t know I could feel so beautiful! For someone who normally hates every photo of myself, I can honestly say that there is not a single photo that I don’t like. The extent of detail in which she and Sarah go to is second to none. If you don’t book her today you will regret it!"

"On my quest for my dream wedding photographer I searched and searched through facebook and instagram. I finally came across Alex's page, I instantly knew I had to have her! I honestly think Alex thought I was crazy when I booked her before we had our wedding date officially booked. Alex has gone above and beyond her job as a photographer and has offered her help and advice throughout our whole relationship. She is the most kind, sweet, and uplifting soul you will meet.
Now let's talk about her work, our engagement photos and wedding photos are impeccable. Alex takes such pride in her work and it shows. We cannot be anymore in love with our photos and will cherish them for a lifetime! If I had to redo my wedding I would still pick Alex over and over again. Alex is your photographer and she will make your dreams come true!!"

"Alex Lasota.... two words. A godsend. She is simply amazing, and helped my husband and I (who never take pictures) to come out of our shells and get some fantastic images. When I went searching for wedding photographers, I read review after review, and hoped I would find the perfect match for us. Well, we sure did! If you are a researcher like me, and want your wedding and love to be captured beautifully, then look no further! The best part about it all is that Alex is so kind and encouraging throughout the whole process. We felt very comfortable in front of the camera and can't thank her enough for making this whole experience so loving and easy. She was very quick on her turnaround with the images and all of them were unbelievably beautiful. I could go on and on about how amazing our whole experience was, but I'll save you the time and tell you to book her right now!!"
- Macy & AJ
"Alex did our engagement pictures, wedding and sunset bridal session! My husband and I cannot say enough about her! She traveled with us to the mountains a couple of times and is such a joy to be around. I was afraid my husband (the manly, bearded, outdoorsy type) would not be into it but by the time we were done he was saying " Is that it? Can we do more?!"
Alex has a way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and forget that it's even there! I admire that she is always looking to better herself and business! She takes the time to answer all questions you may have and explain everything thoroughly. Alex is truly a gem and we are so beyond thrilled to be able to look back at ALL of our pictures and smile! Thank you Alex!!!"

"Alex Lasota... Where do I start?! Well first let's talk about the photographer herself. She is a kind, artistic, and creative soul. Alex pours her heart into her photography from the details, angles, lighting, and so much more. She makes you and your boyfriend/fiance/husband feel relaxed and comfortable, which can be difficult for many in front of the camera. She works hard so that you don't have to. Alex took our engagement, wedding, and yes post wedding sunset bridal photos. We did the whole shebang with Alex because she is amazing. All of our photos were phenomenal! . If you follow bridal Facebook pages or have a pinterest account, you've probably seen Alex's amazing work. Aside from her photography skills I was also impressed with the time frame it took to receive our images back. We get so many compliments of how beautiful our images are, and we owe it all to Alex."

All photographs are delivered through an online gallery. What I absolutely love about the gallery is that you can easily share it with family and friends, download photos, and order professionally printed prints and canvases that will be delivered to your doorstop in less than a week!
I typically tend to shoot about 75-100 images per hour, so the number of photographs is usually based upon the number of hours you hire me for the day! You receive ALL your photographs from the day. After your wedding I'll go through a culling process, only removing photos that are either a duplicate or has an imperfection (eyes closed, etc.). I believe in giving you everything, because I never want to hold a moment from you.
Turn around time for wedding gallery is roughly 4-7 weeks. Engagement/Anniversary/Couple photographs is roughly 2-3 weeks. I believe in sneak peeks, so you'll ALWAYS see a few images ASAP.
I personally invest a lot of time in providing my couples with the resources they need to make their wedding day a smashing success, and have been known to surprise and spoil along the way. While I take pride in providing you with beautiful imagery, i also take pride in making this a very memorable experience that is ever evolving to make each year better than the last. while i can’t speak for other photographers, i do know that the relationships i’ve built with my couples last far beyond the wedding, as documenting special moments like this bonds you for life.
YES! Engagement sessions are SO important which is why they come with every collection (minus one). Engagement sessions are not only a time for us to capture some gorgeous photographs but also a time to bond with one another and find your photo chemistry. Please note that I do also offer engagement photographs separately as well, on the off chance I'm already booked for your wedding date!
Yes yes and more yes! I absolutely adore photographing couple sessions, honeymoon sessions as well as anniversary sessions (they are so important). Pretty much if you are in love, let me be your third wheeler with a camera in hand.
I typically will book out 9-18 months in advance, but please don't late that sway you from reaching out anyways. Sometimes I have a staggering date that hasn't been booked in my calendar, or have scattered Fridays and Saturdays available. Once you know your date, feel free to give me a hollar and we'll get things a movinnn....
My 10 hour collection is my most popular collection, with my 8 hour coming in second. That being said, every wedding is unique and we'll most definitely discuss this further in your complimentary consultation.
Yes! I absolutely love to travel and will gladly venture to any where my couples want to go. If you haven't had the chance, I highly encourage you to check out my travel schedule and bucket list which you can find on my about page to see if I might already be where you are at! Please note that travel fees do apply, depending on where your wedding is. Most likely a plane ticket (or two), a rental car and 2 night minimum hotel stay.
Absolutely! During consultations it's standard for me to send over two to three real wedding galleries so you can get a complete feel of what you'll be receiving. I highly suggest that if you are interviewing other photographers you request to see multipule real wedding galleries, because it's very important to see more than just the highlight reel.
OF COURSE. I cannot tell you how many of my couples have expressed this same sentiment to me. All I can say is that I have you covered. I provide ALL my clients with some fancy literature that goes over everything you need to know, alongside tips and tricks on how to calm those nerves and get the most out of our time together. It’s my job to make this a fun experience and make sure your prepared! You're gonna look amazing, and it'll be super easy. Promise.
Absolutely. Any professional you hire for your wedding should!
At this time I am focusing on weddings, couples, engagements, anniversaries and elopements. I am currently not taking on any family, newborn, or senior photography.
I highly recommend heading to the HOME page and filling out the contact form and telling me all about your plans and your story. Once I receive your info, I'll send you an email back with my full pricing guide. If you feel we're a fit, we'll book a consultation to go over all my processes and answer any questions you have. Once you decide on a collection, I'll draft the contract, you'll sign + pay the deposit and you'll then be officially in the calendar!
I often get asked if I travel for weddings and elopements and the answer is yes, yes and more yes. Weddings and elopements 70+ miles outside of Tri-Cities are subject to additional travel fees, but I work with my clients to keep those costs down so additional fees won't be an issue.
Traveling is quite honestly one of my favorite parts about this career path, which is why I've gone ahead and made a travel schedule & bucket list page.
