When we first met Alex and Margaret we knew they were the perfect photographers for our wedding. We sat down to have a discussion about our vision and they immediately understood what we were looking for. They were willing to work within our budget and helped us come up with a customized package that would work for our needs.
Together, Alex & Margaret are a great team and do a phenomenal job working with other wedding vendors to make the experience as smooth and seamless as possible for everyone.
During both our engagement shoot and our day-of photography they were able to listen and adapt to our vision and came up with great creative ideas on the fly. They were considerate of the experience for guests as well, and made sure to stay behind the scenes to capture the moments, rather than distract from the action. Both of them were great to work with and made us, our families, friends and guests all feel comfortable. We never felt rushed or hurried through the process. Margaret even helped keep the girls calm during a few of the unexpected stressful moments of the day.
The photos turned out beautifully! We couldn’t be happier! A great mix between glamorous and creative—above and beyond the standard wedding fare. Both Alex and Margaret showed they were truly adaptable to their audience. We were very impressed with the exceptional candid moments that they captured, many of which we didn’t get to see during the day. After spending months of planning, it was great to see that they even captured all of the little details. We received our photos back pretty quickly and the editing was very well done with great attention to detail.
Overall they did an amazing job capturing the whole experience of the day from many points of view. So many great memories will be remembered forever as a result of their incredible, talented work. We have already recommended them to a number of friends and they were also very happy with their service.

I have only one issue with this photographer: there were so many AMAZING photos to choose from, I hardly knew where to begin!
They don't just excel at posed shots - although those are gorgeous too. They really specialize in capturing the little moments throughout that special day: a shared glance, a surprised smile, a memorable dance move... Looking at our photos, we can relive those moments over and over. It's a gift we will always treasure.
Margaret and Alex are a delight to work with - professional, genuine and a lot of fun. I couldn't possibly recommend them any more highly.

The team at Straylight Photo Studio is beyond incredible. Their talent and professionalism is outstanding. Without exception, everyone who sees our photographs is blown away. Our photographs have a perfect mix of formal and candid as well as tradition and modern/editorial. In all, Margaret and Alex did an amazing job of capturing not only the beauty of that day but the energy, excitement and feeling that was present. They truly captured the authenticity of the day. It literally jumps out at you when you look at the photographs. We couldn't be happier and will enjoy our photographs for years to come. Thank you again Straylight!
