OVERVIEW

Based on the gorgeous surf coast of Torquay, Alexander Shore Photography specialises in documentary-style pictures that capture authentic moments. Starting out as a lifestyle and adventure photographer, his passion for capturing beautiful and natural moments evolved organically into shooting weddings. His affordable service is warmly extended to couples from the LGBTQIA+ community.

Living on Victoria’s stunning coast, Alex’s love for photography grew from his passion for the ocean. When he eventually transitioned into wedding photography, he brought with him an ability to be inspired by the real moments that occur naturally. His documentary-style pictures capture candid and real emotions, and he often leaves weddings feeling like he’s part of the family.

 

“Alex is a relaxed guy who fit perfectly into our wedding vibe! We weren’t sure what we wanted from a wedding photographer but from our first interactions and meeting we knew he would be the perfect fit! He scouted our venue and surrounds before our big day and had some ideas for shots which made our day even more relaxing! He was an absolute professional and captured some beautiful candid moments which we will treasure for a lifetime.” Clair P

 

Alex loves to travel and is often called upon to shoot weddings in Melbourne and beyond. In his own words, he’ll go “wherever love may take me...can't believe I just said that!”. A self-proclaimed chatterbox, Alex loves to meet new people and knows just how to set them at ease in front of the camera. His easygoing nature will get you feeling relaxed and up for a bit of fun!

“From the first chats we had with Alex we felt he really understood us. Not only does he have a wonderfully creative eye, he also has a lovely warm presence that made everyone relaxed and comfortable, which comes through in the photos. By the end of our wedding we were sad to say goodbye to him as we felt he had become part of our family. If you need a great wedding photographer - you’ve found him.” Boyd P

About

My photography begun in my late teens and grew alongside a love of travelling for surf and snow. I emigrated from England to Torquay, Australia, when I was 26. By living on the surfcoast, and pushing my surf photography (see website and Insta), I soon grew relationships with local people and their businesses, becoming involved as a local photographer. Weddings seemed to find me, but I have found the whole experience highly rewarding. Now at 31, my business has been alive since 2018

FAQ

Hell yes - love is love! My pronouns are he/him.  I hold the LGBTQIA+ community close to my heart and it kills me when I see prejudice to this day.  With the legalisation of same sex weddings only arriving to Australia in 2017, I want to capture your wedding day and put it up in lights for the world to see!

I absolutely love weddings set along the beachy Surf Coast and in the Forrests around The Otways and Macedon Ranges. Basically I love beautiful outdoor settings!

Definitely relaxed! I believe in capturing real moments so prefer a Candid approach...

I have sculpted packages for almost every occasion, starting with small Elopements and ending with the full shenanigans!

Nope - I hate clock watching! My packages are sculpted around what couples want out of their photography, so I'll stay untill I get it all!

Yes definitley! It's not necessary but I love to meet couples for a coffee/chat before a deposit is made.  This way I can provide a more formal quotation with any special requests clearly listed. I then like to meet closer to the wedding day to run through finer details and allow a relaxing day.  

All I ask for is a run sheet or similar.  It's also really good to provide a list of who you want photographs with so that we can tick them off over the day and avoid forgetting people in the moment.

Yes I can't recommend this enough! I personally hand design ' Coffee Table' Wedding Albums that are beautifully modern and classy, and can lay flat.  They can sit on your coffee table or be opened up and displayed on a book stand. Albums are perfect for telling the story of your day and there is nothing better than having something to hold and flick through - you will cherish it I promise!

Not usually! Unless I start getting too far from home and then it's only a minimal charge.

Alex did an amazing job capturing our wedding photography. We were so happy to find him. Alex is easy-going, organised, flexible and extremely talented at photography. We had 2 coffee meets prior to the wedding which were great to discuss details and get to know each other. The wedding day ran so smoothly. Alex was able to provide us with the perfect amount of direction, while he was also very happy to take requests, making our day super simple. Thank you Alex! We'd highly recommend Alex as a wedding photographer.

Alex was absolutely fantastic, from our first coffee meeting to the actual Wedding day where he captured so many great memories of our special day. Alex went over and above our expectations and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

It was a pleasure having Alex shoot our wedding and now we have so many great images to reminisce about our special day. Alex was very easy going and happy to accommodate our requests as well as guiding us to know where we could get the best shots and best light. He did an excellent job of capturing the story of the day and has a knack for getting great candid shots of those special moments. Overall we can't recommend Alex highly enough!

Alex was amazing, so easy to deal with from way before our day to during the day and after! He has a calm and professional manner, and really listens to what you want and he encapsulated our day perfectly. We would highly recommend him.

The absolute best experience. Alex is an absolute professional, very friendly and makes people feel at eased and relaxed, even those who dislike photographers. Captured our special day spectacularly made us look like models and fantastic job at not being in the way capturing the most natural and unposed beautiful moments. Highly highly recommend

3 Bridesmaids and no Groomsmen?? HELP

Hey, My HB does not want groomsmen but I want my 3 bridesmaids. How am I going to make this work without it looking weird with seating plans and photos?

Alexander Shore Photography

Hello! Great question, I've seen this pop up a few times.  In my opinion, your wedding day should be as you want it.  If you want 3 bridesmaids, and your partner doesn't want any groomsmen, then don't even think about losing any of the girls - you'll regret it.  A good photographer will come up with great ideas for any photo shoots, so don't even worry about that.  A bloke surrounded by girls can make for some fun photos!  

With regards to seating plan and speech photos, have you considered not necessarily having a bridal party table?  So the two of you could either sit separately, or on a larger group table with bridesmaids and close friends / family.  The latter is sometimes nice, as you get to spend time with your loved ones, and 'titles' don't matter so much.  If you want to have a more traditional bridal table, just ask the photographer to get wide shots of you all, and also tight shots of just you and your partner.  Speakers always get a solo shot too.  It all comes together in the photo album :)

Hope this helps!
