For the past eight years Alex de Freitas has been lucky enough to travel the world, meeting amazing families and photographing hundreds of happy couples. He tells their wedding stories with great enthusiasm in his relaxed, candid photographic style that captures all the formal and informal beauty, happiness and warmth of the occasion.
Hi and welcome! I'm stoked that you've found me! I feel immensely privileged to be able to share with my clients one of the most important days in their lives. To each wedding I bring genuine interest and friendliness and I'm pretty sure I've yet to meet a mother-in-law that doesn't think I'm charming! Most importantly, I've been doing this long enough to develop an acute awareness of those fleeting moments which, when captured, are the images you'll remember forever!
I'm Alex from New Zealand and when I grow up I want to be a sea captain but until then, my favourite thing in the world is celebrating with couples and telling the story of their day in photographs. I really can remember every single wedding like it was yesterday - the bride and groom, the dancing, the family and friends. I'm the photographer you want to have around on your big day. I don't do time restrictions, crazy timelines or schedules, I just want to be there to celebrate with you from the beginning of your day until the very end - to tell the visual story as it unfolds. I'll be there to capture all the important moments, the candid smiles and tears, and all of the unexpected moments in between. I truly believe that your wedding photographer should feel like your friend. You want to be comfortable and relaxed around the person you are trusting to tell the story of such an important day. With that said, let's catch up! I am currently taking limited bookings for New Zealand & worldwide for 2018. After a decade of 30+ weddings per year I now only accept 15 bookings each year so please be in touch if you're interested! I usually reside between Auckland, NZ and London, UK, but wherever I am in the world I'm always keen for a coffee/beer or a catch-up on Skype/Facetime! I'd be delighted to meet you both and hear a bit more about what you've got planned for the big day! Drop me a line HERE.
Look forward to hearing from you
