Engagement Photography

I am so incredibly happy we decided to work with Harlow Alexander Photography for our Engagement session! Mikaela and Steven are very responsive and totally invested in making sure the session is exactly like you envision. From the very beginning they took great care in planning all of the details, keeping us informed on any updates leading up to our session. On the day of they thought of everything even bringing us flowers to make the photos extra special. The photoshoot was very natural, comfortable, and overall so much fun I just want to do it again! They work together to make sure lighting, the location, poses, and everything else is perfect! If your looking for the sweetest and most talented duo to take your photos, Harlow Alexander is a perfect fit! The below photos are just a few they sent me as a sneak peak the evening after we took our photos. I cannot wait to see the rest!

I was extremely satisfied from the initial contact, booking, coordination of the shoot, teaser reviews, and all the way to the final photo gallery delivery. She was very considerate of wants and needs of young couple for their engagement photos. The quality and creativity of photos are just exceptional. Thank you for making this a very special experience for our son and future daughter-in-law. Looking forward to work with them for future family projects.

We hired Harlow Alexander for a wedding photoshoot to commemorate our virtual courthouse ceremony. From the beginning, Mikaela was incredibly gracious, responsive, and resourceful. She helped us lock down a location and turned around our full set of photos very quickly. During the photoshoot itself, Mikaela was excellent at making us comfortable and feel natural with candid-like poses. She was calm, instructive, and collaborative as she directed us over the course of our one-hour time slot. Thank you for helping us document our special day!

We had an amazing experience hiring Harlow Alexander for a small shoot with our family. Mikaela did an incredible job capturing candid moments as well as picking spots to get photos with everyone. She was so polite and caring. We cannot recommend Harlow Alexander enough and will definitely be return customers in the future.

Harlow Alexander Photography met and exceeded our expectation. Our family was a little nervous we may not photograph well but Mikaela and her husband made the session a breeze and comfortable. We’ve received a sneak peek of the shoot in a timely manner and the photos we saw so far are gorgeous! Highly recommend and will use again!
