THE TEAM

We are always privileged to share in the happiness of not only the couple themselves, but their loved ones. We will capture those moments of joy and bring them back to life through our stunning photographs and movies. The team has captured over hundreds of weddings, spanning over 21 years.

Here at ‘Video Studio Alex’ we offer a relaxed and unobtrusive style of wedding photography. This allows us to capture both you and your guests in a natural and informal way. Stunning natural moments will be captured, often without people even realising they are being photographed and these moments will then be treasured by you and them forever.

Wedding Photography

A day fuelled by Emotion, Love, Friendship. It’s all there, raw and uncut. Capturing moments and emotions, and then shaping them into a story. That’s what We do.

Wedding Videography

Our Cinematic films offer high end film production techniques and equipment with advanced story telling time shifting movie editing. We create a stunning meticulously edited film of your wedding day. Filmed with multiple camera's using cinematic film equipment such as camera sliders, jibs/steady cams and camera drones (to capture ariel shots) to create a movie of your wedding day.

Love Story

Have you just engaged? Our engagement shoots are a relaxed and informal opportunity to capture the excitement and build up to your wedding day. They are also a chance for you to spend time as a couple away from the whirlwind of wedding planning. We aim to capture your essence as a couple, your sense of togetherness and your natural connection. Your engagement shoot can take place at a location of your choice, somewhere special and unique to you as a couple.

Testimonials

Wedding Photography

We offer a range of albums from a simple coffee table art book style, stylish magazine style albums to a lavish bespoke hand bound story book album. All the albums complement the photography perfectly, showing multiple images on a page laying out the narrative of your special day.

After your wedding we select the pictures that best tell the story of your day, featuring many special moments; perhaps some you may have missed and lots of the details making your album a truly beautiful reminder of your wedding. For parents and relatives, we offer smaller copies of your main album. These are very popular and many of our clients like to give them miniature albums as a surprise gift for loved ones.

All wedding bookings will receive a complimentary engagement/pre-wedding shoot either in the Oxfordshire countryside, or nearby location of your choice. A pre- wedding shoot is a great way to relax in front of the camera before your wedding day - you will then feel a lot more at ease with being photographed and stunning shots will be captured for you to treasure forever.

Wedding Videography

We are Award Winning Wedding Videographers - creating unique wedding movies for couples across the Country.

We specialise in candid, documentary style wedding videography, capturing not controlling, observing not ordering, relaxed not regimented! We are your eyes for the day and work in the background to provide you with photographic memories to cherish forever. We use only the best technology to capture stunning visuals and videography. All the footage we capture is professionally filmed and edited to ensure the finished product surpasses most expectations.

We do Drones too!!!

They can capture key moments of the day – such as videoing a special moment between the bride and groom or perhaps photographing a big group of guests from above. Drone filming can look so spectacular, because the footage can really reveal the grandeur of a wedding venue and its surroundings. An ideal moment to capture would be between the ceremony and the reception whilst the guests are socialising.

Maternity Photography

There’s just a few weeks to go before your new baby arrives and you’re feeling excited (and maybe a little nervous, too!). Celebrate the magic and anticipation of pregnancy with professional maternity photography by the top-rated photographer in the area.

We love Images that celebrate your pregnancy and show off your bump. This is the perfect opportunity to create once in a lifetime memories of such a precious time in your life and captures your baby’s first journey with you.

We recommend to do your session around 34/36 weeks. This is often when you don’t feel too uncomfortable and your bump looks amazing, however all pregnancies are different.

If you’d like a professional makeover before the start of your shoot, let us know as soon as possible. We work with the multi-award winning hair and makeup artists and they get booked quickly. Some of our clients just want a little help with their hair, some just need their makeup done while others opt for both – it’s totally up to you.

What should I wear for my maternity photos?

We have a wide range of beautiful dresses to choose from, but you can always wear your own clothes. Your partner/husband/sibling are always welcome to join the session!

The session can be arranged in the open air or in our studio.

Once you book your Maternity session, We will guide you step by step how to prepare for this special day.

So don’t worry if you’ve never been to a photography studio before, or even if you really don’t normally enjoy being photographed. Our shoots are super relaxed, fun and games-led – the absolute best way to get youngsters and grown-ups engaged.

Newborn Photography

I can’t count how many people have said to me ‘I wish I had done a newborn shoot with my little one, but I just didn’t get around to booking’! So I always encourage people to book after their 20-week scan in order to guarantee you a spot in my diary.We only take a limited amount of session's per month to allow with flexibility with early/late births. Newborns are best to photograph before they reach 20 days of age. After that they are no more that super cuddlly and sleepy. We recommend to schedule the date of your session, before baby reach one week to get the best results! Session will take place in our studio, based in Oxfordshire All the props and accessories will be ready for you so you don't need to worry about anything!

We will ask you to keep your baby awake up to 1 hr before the session if possible. Before the session start there will be time to feed and change your baby. Your newborn portrait session can take up to 4 hours and the reason for this is your newborn will need feeding, cuddles and cleaning troughout the session which is baby led rather than photographer led. Studio will be heated to a warmer than normal temperature, so be sure to wear something light and comfortable and be prepared to sweat a little.

If you plan on having some family and siblings images done, we'll do those first and then the older kids will be able to leave with Grandma, Dad or whoever can watch them. Neutral, earthy tones are best for clothing and jeans with solid shirts are prefered. One of the most beautiful portraits are the "skin to skin" ones and We always encourage parents to take this kind of pictures during the session

If you can bring a pacifier for your baby, even if only for the session, this will make the work much easier. Baby's often love to suck and it helps soothe them into the poses we are looking for and getting them to sleep. If your baby won't take a pacifier or you do not feel comfortable offering one, don't worry. We can work with whatever is good for you and your family. When your gallery is ready, We will invite you back to the studio to view them all on a big screen. This is where you will choose which package you would like and how you would like to display your beautiful new images. Once Your chosen package is finalised, any product ordered will be delivered directly to you.

MILESTONE

Babies go through so many changes in their first year - it’s amazing how they grow and develop new skills! In the first few months, they are able to hold their head up, interact with you and flash a little smile here and there. Then comes sitting up, using their hands and those amazing belly laughs. Milestone Sessions are designed to document these incredible changes and preserve some of the incredible memories that are made during this amazing time.

Milestone Session can be scheduled at any time during baby’s first year, but we recommend scheduling around major milestones, like when baby can support himself or herself on their tummy (around 3 to 4 months), and when they’re able to sit up on their own (around 6 to 9 months).

FINE ART PORTRAIT

A beautiful portrait of your child is much more than just a smile. It is a carefully created, by using lighting, textures & post production - piece of Art. Stylised children portraiture is about the details and natural facial expressions. We will advise you on colours & clothing that will compliment your child best.Capturing the image is only half of the experience...

While the images may look great on your phone or desktop, there is just no comparison between a digital image and a beautifully framed wall portrait.

We have a great selection of prints, wall art and albums, we will help you to create a beautiful display of your Childs gallery.

Let us use Our experience and expertise to create classic portraits your children, and their children will look back on for generations to come.

Family Photography

From our experience the best way to make the most from your session is to make sure the whole family gets involved. We understand that most people don’t like having their images taken. That’s why we make the sessions fun and relaxed. Our team of photographers are there to put you at your ease and ensure we capture special images for you. The session is not about sitting and posing, it is about capturing precious time with the family. We take a whole range of different images, whatever it takes to tell your story. We love images that show WHO you are not just what you look like. Whether you’re into music, sport, or just having fun together, we can build around these ideas to make a portrait that captures the unique personality of your family. So bring in props, anything goes, the more personal and original the better. Images from books and magazines can really help to give us an idea of who you are and what you enjoy. When you book your session we will chat through any ideas and help you plan your shoot to make sure you get the most from it.
