• Phocus Photography

Alex + Alex

What are the odds of falling in love with someone with the same name as you?? As you could imagine, it was fun taking those couple photos and giving direction to Alex....and Alex! ;) So we all ended up coming up with the idea of "Alex in the dress" and "Alex in the tux"! These two made it SO easy for us because they were naturals in front of the lens!

Number One Tip for Future Phocus Brides to Consider:

"Make sure you have your hair and make up ready prior to the brides photo session."- Alexandria


On the wedding day, we were fighting the rain in short periods of time for clear weather so Alexandria put it in "sport mode" when she arrived at the church to get dressed! I don't think we've ever seen a bride get dressed as fast as she did! We were impressed, and she looked amazing!!

What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos?

"Live moments during wedding/photos near the cross’s"-Alex

The emotion during the Chadwick's ceremony was 100% natural emotions, and you could see how much these two loved each other from just one simple look!


What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos?

"Bride and groom photos"-Alexandria

We could not wait to get these two in the same room together!! Their chemistry was absolutely undeniable, and we honestly were just there taking photos, they did the rest! ;)


How did you two meet?

"We met at a church we both used to attend."-Alexandria

Funny story about how the Chadwick's love story began. It was not your typical love story, because Alexandria actually was not a fan of Alex when the first met because she thought he was annoying ;) Those were her words out of her mouth! Then as time went on, Alex started to grow on her, and she started to fall in love with Alex. The rest is history!


Tell us about THE dress!

"Well, the dress was one of three. Went from an all sequins dress, to a corset top - simple chic dress."-Alexandria

There are so many choices when it comes to the dress style you will choose, and we loved how simple and elegant Alexandria's dress was! Some love all the glitz and the glam, and other love the simple style! She was absolutely GORGEOUS and she knew it! ;)


Describe the BRIDE on your wedding day!

"It’s hard to put it in to words. She was breath taking. Stunning, super lovely on the eyes. She was warming, comforting, GORGEOUS, BEA-U-TI-FUL. Definitely one of the most, if not, the prettiest I’ve ever seen her."-Alex

Alex definitely comes off as cool, calm, and collected, but as soon as he saw his bride, all those emotions came flooding in. Can you blame him though?!?! Look at his beautiful bride!!


Describe the GROOM on your wedding day!

So handsome! My love for him grew even more!

Alex really did not need much coaching when it came to taking those solo shots of himself! He was a natural, and made it look easy in the process! Something about being all dressed up really allows that space to feel like you are looking like M.O.N.E.Y!!


What was the most EMOTIONAL part of the day and WHY?

"Hearing the violin when walking into the foyer area, and seeing her walk down the isle."-Alex


As soon as Alex made eye contact with his bride, those tears started to well up in his eyes! All those emotions from the anticipation of waiting to see his wife came rushing in, and it left Alex overwhelmed with joy!


What was the most EMOTIONAL part of the day and WHY?

"Seeing my mom and sister cry!"-Alexandria

At the end of the day, it's all about who you have in your corner to support you one of the biggest days of your life!


What is ONE moment of your wedding you will always remember?

"There was a moment during the wedding when we held hands. It felt as though our arms locked together as if we were truly one. "-Alex

There is always that moment where the bride and groom come together, and reality sets in that the day has finally come, and they are finally getting married! This moment shared between the Chadwicks was so sweet to witness. You can see how happy they both are!


What is ONE moment of your wedding you will always remember?

"Walking down the aisle towards Alex." -Alexandria

Moments like these are ones you'll remember for the rest of your life! We are honored that we were able to capture these memories that will last a lifetime!


Favorite Part of the Phocus Experience?

"The range of photos we were able to capture. From them giving so many different kinds/views to even allowing our own as well. As well, how efficient Phocus is and how professional they are."-Chadwicks

The Chadwick's wedding day was a small and intimate wedding, but that doesn't change how impactful this day was in each and every one of their lives. From the moment we arrived and spoke with Alex, we could see the excitement all over his face! These two were made for one another, no matter how annoying they find one another! ;)


Here are a few of our favorites from the day!
