My name is Alexandra Nurthen, a wedding and portrait photographer serving all of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia. Being yourself IS art, so let’s get it on camera.

Makeup Artists I Love: Philadelphia

As a photographer, I have the pleasure of working closely with venues, makeup and hair stylists, and florists who create beautiful and unique weddings. A successful vendor builds strong relationships with their clients to help tell the story of the couple and their love. They make it easy to capture beautiful images that couples cherish forever, and I’m thrilled to shine a light on a few vendors that I’ve met along the way with a new blog series. Follow along to learn about some of my favorites and explore images of their amazing spaces and work.

I’m starting with Philadelphia-based makeup and hair stylist, Aleksandra Ambrozy. Aleksandra and her team are incredible stylists and artists that make brides look and feel their best. They believe that good makeup reflects your unique personality and brings out your natural beauty, so that you feel fabulous, and it shows. They know that great makeup also looks as good in person as it does in photos (which is great for me, and you, too!) and ensure that makeup is light, comfortable, and long-lasting. Brides styled by Aleksandra and her team always look stunning throughout their event.

Check out these photos from a shoot at the gorgeous Cescaphe in Philly and, if you’re in the area, look into Aleksandra Ambrozy for your event! Whether you’re planning a wedding or a you’re a wedding vendor looking to collaborate, feel free to reach out! I’m always looking for the next opportunity to create beautiful images.

Another incredible gal to work with is JKO Beauty. I’ve worked closely with her as well, with one of my first ever clients! The attention to detail these ladies put into their work is top notch. Jennifer and I have not yet had the pleasure of working on a styled session together yet, but my clients love her. Maria introduced me to her all the way back in 2020, and I’m sure glad she did. You will see her work below with “Mrs. Reading.” We worked together at the Blue Bell Country Club and Normandy Farm. Calm and collected, Jennifer will work with you to make sure that face is flawless from first look to sparklers!

Capturing families gives me life! I love a good family photography session. Growing up, my mom would do whatever it took to get everyone in the same room. I come from a family of 6, so that wasn’t always an easy task!

a few favorites from


Fall Family Sessions

This maternity session was absolute perfection! The light, the bump, the dress– all coming together to create swoon-worthy images that I know this family will treasure forever.


Shayna's Maternity Session

Catholicism has forever been the foundation of my family. Now, it serves as common thread between my business and the fabulous individuals that I get to call clients.
