Not just a photographer, a visual storyteller for loved-up souls.

A little about me

HI, I'M alex

I’m Alex, not (surprisingly as everyone assumes) Frances. I’m a dreamer, a Mama, creative photographer and magic maker. I tell soulful love stories of people who have lived and loved, in my signature soulful style, with curiosity as my compass.

Dreamer, photographer and adventurer. Part playful, part soulful, I uncover love stories like yours, creating images with intention.

I believe that legacy always starts with love. For me, everything grows from the simple beauty of family. My name is actually those of my Great Great Grandparents, Frances and Rose West. I never met them, they passed away when my Grandmother was young but they were both deaf and as a child, my
Grandmother used sign language to communicate. She still signs today. I wanted to take my history and use it to create my identity. There’s many similarities between signing and photography. It is my joy to capture the unsaid and to witness the unseen. I love that I get to retell emotion and expression, uncovering and capturing connection.

It is your dream and I am the catcher, it’s magical to learn your unique language together, the way you touch, the way you connect, the poetry of intimacy, the artistic and unspoken. My imagery is the sign language that shares your love story and creates your legacy. too!

creating legacy

Uncover your overall approach to the day and an overview of your process. Help them picture what it’s like to have you there on the day and why what you do is so important. Mention how you’ll help them ensure the day flows smoothly, because you’ve had loads of experience at other weddings.   

For example, talk about how you’ll arrive at first light to capture the mother-of-the-bride and the bridal squad helping the bride get ready. Or the groomsmen sneaking a few drinks to calm their nerves. 

Chat about how you’ll turn up after one too many coffees, buzzing with energy to capture one of the most important, memorable days in their lives, and that you won’t miss a moment. 

Write about documenting the getting ready prep through to ceremony, reception and afterparty (if relevant). How you’ll be there in the centre of it all or as a wallflower behind the scenes, photographing moments and details that they might’ve missed (e.g. Aunty Doris getting drunk on the d-floor). Whether you stick to purely candid shots or will pose them for styled shots.

Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat


Here’s where you can go on a deeper dive into what started your photography journey and why you love it so much – talk about your motivations and purpose, why every shoot is a new experience. 

You can also write about your overall style and personality, what makes you different from all the other photographers they’ve researched. Don’t be shy!

Talk about how your photos will help them relive the day for years and generations to come. 

“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”


Imagery is an opportunity to extract every detail, the intricacy of each flower as it changes from summer to fall. These moments in time make for soulful stories that have presence and poetry. My images are captured with intention, combining my empathic nature with an editorial approach. Light-filled, passion-fueled dreamscapes, that are dramatic, artistic and true. Reflecting the romance of you.

Alex was such a significant part of our Wedding!! She worked with us fully to understand our vision and make our dream a reality. She brought so much passion and enthusiasm to our shoot, making it exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.


Place your second review here. Something a little like...Chantelle made our wedding day. She is such a joy to be around and our photos are stunning!


Keep those reviews coming. Make sure they are quick, easy and interesting to read. Also, your review should specify the specific result your client achieved from using you. 


Let me document you in your wholeness, exactly as you are right now, enough.

No story is one and the same. Yours will be finessed to share your unique journey.
