Alex was polite, punctual, precise and ever so pleasant. Alex arrived ready to rock and roll before the scheduled start of the day and was consistently looking for opportunities to get those candid shots we both wanted. Whilst I was not skeptical of Alex's ability as a photographer, I do have mirrors in my house - and understand intimately the subject matter he was working with in me the Groom. By some stroke of photographer-genius he has managed to capture amazing photographs of me and my bride on our wedding day that have absolutely blown me away. Alex's ability to seamlessly blend and move with the crowd was complimented back to us many times. 10/10 would recommend for a fun and exciting time!

Hands down best wedding photographer! What really makes an excellent wedding photographer is how they make you feel on the day. Not only does Alex take the most beautiful and stunning photos (legit stunning!), but he makes you feel so comfortable and easy going on the day! He put us at ease, made it fun, got the photos we specifically asked for and just overall made our whole day so amazingly special! Photography was my number 1 priority for the day and I’m so glad we found Alex! I would highly recommend Alex from The Happy Donkey to everyone!!!

When I came across Alex I knew straight away that he was the right photographer for us. I loved that he captured beautifully clear and bright photos, but also dreamy romantic shots - perfect for our Queensland beach wedding. We couldn’t have been happier with the result and I cried with tears of happiness when we revived our album. Alex was so professional from the moment he arrived and just got to work amongst the chaos of us getting ready to coordinating family and friends for group shots. He was so calm and helpful throughout the whole process, he really put us at ease. Every photo is beautiful, especially photos during the ceremony capturing so much emotion. But what blew us away was the amount of detail he went too, not a moment or guest was missed and he has a very good eye for capturing beautiful memories.
