A few things to help you get to know me:
  • No one can beat me in Mario Kart (as long as its on N64 and I get to be Yoshi)
  • I played a wide range of sports growing up and still love to be active
  • I love a good movie plot with a twist or turn that I didn't see coming
  • Words I live by: Be here now. I practice mindfulness so I can make the most of each moment

I consider myself a midwest girl at heart. I was born and raised in Iowa, but since have lived in other places including South Dakota, Minnesota, and Colorado. Now, I'm an East Coast girly living with my husband and our dog in Northern Virginia.

We are enjoying life on the East Coast, having our coffee on the porch and making new memories while exploring the Shenandoah Valley in our free time.

Hi, I'm Alex!

am so excited you're here! Whether you are planning a big wedding or dreaming up an intimate elopement, I would love to be a part of what makes your wedding day special.

A snapshot into my life

Chatting with friends and family around a dinner table or backyard fire is one my favorite pastimes and a sure way to make me feel at home. There is a unique comfort in sharing stories, laughing, and just being present and in the moment with the people you love. Even sweeter is when the only question left to answer is, would you like dessert?

Moments that bring me joy

Whether it's date night with my husband or going out with friends, you can safely bet that tacos are in the plan. I am one of those unlucky souls who has the cilantro taste like soap gene. That is such a bummer too because I consider myself a foodie and willing to try (most) anything.

One of the reasons I love being a wedding photographer is that I get to travel to new places. I'm sure to plan a route that includes an almond-milk latte and a visit to a local bookstore or antique shop. I get inspired by the curated shelves, local pottery, and textures that are unique to the city. Seeing the art and local goods refills my cup of inspiration and refuels my desire to create.

Working with Alex was a wonderful experience. I was lucky to find her online and she captured our proposal and engagement photos. She is extremely helpful and communicates great. She was also early for both sessions and came prepared. She made everything a lot of fun and most importantly the photos came out great. Would recommend her to anyone!

If you're looking for a photographer that goes above and beyond, book Alex! She not only captured stunning photos of us, but she also took the time to visit our engagement shoot location at the exact time of day we would be there to make sure the light was right, was always available for advice, was very flexible with our tight schedules, and was super responsive. Her editing time is lightning fast, and the photos were amazing! Highly recommend!!

I had been seeing fun bridal shoots on my Tik Tok and had been wanting to throw my wedding dress on again to do one! I’m going to attach a couple photos and let them do all the talking, but the shoot I had with Alex was a once in a lifetime shoot. Not only did she make me feel EXTREMELY comfortable shooting on my own, but she was the type of fun that made me think we could be best friends and to this day, I still go back and look at them once a week. I cannot recommend her enough!!!

ALEX IS INCREDIBLE!!! I was so fortunate to have connected with such a creatively artistic, technically talented and overall lovely person. Alex is the type of lighting in a bottle photographer you want capturing special your moments. Someone with clear vision and a go-with-the-flow attitude is all you can ever hope for in scene setting photoshoots. My fiancé and I felt so at ease walking around Historic Occoquan getting to know Alex while she casually and somehow seamlessly, captured our most candid loving moments. If you are in search of someone who can bring out the best version of you on and off camera, Alex McCormick is your girl. If you want to live out your classic vintage dreams, that is another one of her many specialties. I know my photos and memories of this day will be cherished for many years to come and her services will be recurring and highly recommended!

Alex has done our family photos and our wedding photos. She always makes us feel comfortable which makes our photos turn out so natural, and she’s so much fun to work with! Her turnover time was so fast! She got our sneak peeks back to us within 24 hours! I can’t say enough good things about her and her work!
