Alejandra is from Ecuador but grew up in Barcelona and has been living in London for 6 years. Having had a passion for photography since 2009, she developed this love into professional photography over 3 years ago. Specializing in Portraiture with an interest in family photography, including newborn, children and pet photography, of great importance to Alejandra is to create quality photos that will be treasured for generations. She therefore aims to offer a timeless style, capturing the raw intimacy and emotions between her subjects and using natural posing and natural light where possible.
Her style of photography will always depend on the needs of the clients and she is flexible in considering important themes that they may want to use. She will suggest some simple poses to help guide and relax the couple and their guests, and often tries her best to be invisible, offering a photojournalistic style to the shoot. "Their natural interactions and love will be captured in the shots, and this is both priceless, and timeless!"
She sees the wedding day as a story, with different chapters. While the main focus will always be on the bride and groom, she loves being invisible and capturing the small details. Shooting the reactions of the closest family members and the little ones playing amongst the adults, she loves to capture the elements of the wedding that make the day unique, such as the steam punk wedding dress, or shooting a wedding in a remote, sweet Spanish town that had a population of only 30!
In her spare time, Alejandra volunteers with some lovely animals at animal rescue centres in London and when she is scouting new spots for her next shoot, she loves to play around with street photography.
"Alejandra service was without doubt 5 star! We were really happy her work. The photographs taken are of beautiful quality. I'm an architect and really care about aesthetics, how light is captured and how everything is composed and Alejandra did not miss a beat. Alejandra came to us through references of friends and when we saw her pictures and had our first initial meeting we knew she was the one. Her personal approach is very helpful and dedicated, Our wedding was held in Spain and Alejandra was there throughout the whole weekend meeting our family and friends so no one was camera shy on the day. Alejandra worked hard all day and did whatever was requested. In such a stressful time it was really great to have such a trusting relationship which is difficult to find."
