Neither Josh or I knew what to expect when meeting Alex for our engagement shoot. I had gone through her portfolio and emailed back and forth a few times so I knew I loved her style and that she was extremely kind and accommodating, but until you see face to face these things can always be deceiving.
This was NOT true for Alex. She was warm and welcoming throughout the entire process. She made us feel comfortable, asked our opinion, and she would make conversation like we already had met a million times before. She had already scouted out where we were going in downtown Charleston and knew exactly where we should stop for a few shots. However, she was in no rush so if we had an idea she took the time to try it out. She also was extremely understanding when our dog accompanied us at the end of the shoot and was not well behaved or cooperative.
We got the pictures back in what seemed like no time and they were more beautiful than I could've imagined. I'm so happy we chose her for this entire journey.

Alex is so great to work with!
She takes the time to get to know you on a personal level and that really shows in her photographs. She always goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are happy and that is something that really stood out to me.
The pictures she took at my wedding were so beautiful and I really enjoyed getting to know her through the whole process.
I highly recommend Alex Leaphart!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Alex!
I had seen her work on Facebook and decided right away that I loved her style. She was great to communicate with throughout the booking process, helping choose location and making the actual shoot stress-free.
I was anxious about my two-year-old cooperation by Alex was a natural with her. She made our entire family comfortable and instead of worrying about how to make sure we got some good pictures we were able to relax and have fun during the entire shoot. Alex is confident about the poses and has an eye to capture the perfect candid shots.
The end result far exceeded my expectations - the pictures turned out amazing. The hardest part is picking which ones to print!
Alex is the total package - great communicator, friendly personality, and most of all a highly talented photographer!

My fiancé and I were BEYOND pleased with our photos from Alex.
We were nervous about being in front of the camera, but Alex made us feel completely comfortable. We ended up having the best time and made so many fun memories during our shoot... which I didn't even think that would be possible!
Alex is so talented and nearly 8 months later I still die a little bit every time I look at our photos. The worst part of working with Alex is choosing which photos are your favorites. My photo album held 175 images and it was a SERIOUS struggle to narrow it down.Needless to say, we couldn't be happier about our decision in choosing Alex to take our engagement pictures!!!
She becomes so much more than your photographer...she become your good friend!! Thanks, Alex, for being so intentional, kind, and sharing your talent with us!

I went to school with Alex for many years and knew she would always end up doing something as amazing and selfless as wedding photography. It definitely takes a special person to not only take AMAZING pictures, but also make sure the day runs smoothly.
I didn't have to ask Alex one thing the entire day, she took care of everything for me and helped my big day be as easy and carefree as every brides special day should be. AND, coming home after our honeymoon to an album full of AMAZING wedding photos was the icing on the cake!
Alex is our go to photographer for any and all events we have in the future! Thank you Alex, you rock!

Alex took the best pictures of our sweet boy for his first birthday!
She was even able to take a few photos of just my hubby and I, which we love so much.
This first year with Will has flown by, and I've never treasured quality photographs like I do now. I am so thankful to Alex and her gift of photography for capturing the greatest time in our lives!

My fiancé and I were fortunate enough to meet Alex at my soon to be sister-in-law's wedding. Little did we know at the time that she would be photographing some of our life's most charitable moments. After seeing her work and talking to her via email, we instantly knew she was who we wanted to have photograph our wedding.
After weeks of chatting via email and waiting on the day of our engagement pictures, the day came. Over two and a half hours of pictures and talking about our love for Boykins it was evident that her courteousness and eye for photographer were a level that we cannot explain!
Receiving the gallery of our pictures reinforced everything we felt on the day of our engagement pictures and more.
She had captured so many emotions, and every time we viewed another photo we were moved even more than the previous one we had just seen. Words cannot describe how much the photos that were taken meant, and we will forever be grateful. We could not think of anyone else being there to capture our engagement portraits, my bridal session, or our wedding day, and we cannot wait to use her even further in the future.
