Alex’s Story

Since the spring of 1999, I have been helping make sure that people’s most special events go off without a hitch. I am that guy at the wedding, the anniversary party, the b’nai mitzvah, the sweet 16 who is the Emcee guiding people through their celebration, or perhaps serving as the DJ, putting together just the right play list and honoring as many requests as possible, or perhaps I’m behind the camera capturing the special moments with just the right shot.

It’s pretty amazing being a part of people’s intimate occasions. I love music, I love people having a good time, and I love the artistic side of what a film or set of pictures can capture about an event. Having been through those events personally and knowing how precious those days are in our lives, I want to help make sure that those lifecycle events go as smoothly as possible.
