Praise & Press

Our organization worked with Alex on our cookbook. She lived with us for a week in the Catskills and was a delight to work with. Calm, creative, confident. Highly recommend her!

Alex taught me so much about food photography — from classic composition, to using props, to actually giving me the confidence to shoot in manual mode. The way she explains everything is really straightforward and makes way more sense to me than a lot of the info and tutorials I’ve encountered before. Plus, getting her feedback while I was actually shooting was incredibly helpful. Alex not only has a great eye, but she’s a natural teacher!

Alex is an amazing, creative talent. I had the pleasure of working with her on a custom plant-based menu for my company. She was very considerate and patient throughout the process of developing specific details required for my menu. She was exceptionally thorough and diligent in researching what I needed. The recipes were simple, yet sophisticated. More importantly, they were absolutely delicious! My customers and I are very pleased with the new menu and I look forward to working with Alex in the future.

Working with Alex was a wonderful experience! Everything from her aesthetic, to planning and execution was on point. Alex made the stress of my first shoot disappear with her professionalism and warm personality. The photos are great, she styled the shots and designed the recipes for each. She even gave me a shopping list! Alex provides a complete package, I couldn’t be happier. Looking forward to our next shoot.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alex on several projects for my food clients. Most recently, we worked together on recipe and content creation for Goat Cheese of France. I knew Alex would be perfect for the job thanks to her contagious enthusiasm and passion for food, and her cooking philosophy – “healthy recipes for busy people” – which was exactly what we wanted to create for this client. She executed the project beautifully, proposing creative yet simple recipes using everyday ingredients people love, and producing stunning photos that consistently perform extremely well on our social media platforms. On top of being an excellent recipe developer and having a keen eye for food styling and photography, Alex is a great collaborator, always keeping the lines of communications open and adhering to our tight turnaround schedules.

Alex ran a group photography workshop that was both valuable and fun for our team. She has an approachable style to food photography, and we took away concrete tips and lessons to help us make our content even better. She is extremely knowledgeable in the space, and the hands-on portion of the class allowed us to work alongside her to really grasp the concepts she taught us during the presentation.

My personal photography session with Alex was a fun and valuable experience. In three hours, Alex transformed me from a novice to a somewhat expert in taking food images. Her presentation facilitated a quick learning curve and now I can take my own pictures for my recipe blog. I loved how Alex provides guidance not only in taking the images, but also in styling your images. Her tips are easy to implement and take your photography to a different level.
