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.

Marie & Chris – A Sunset Engagement in Philly

Chasing the best light

Natural light is so important to me as a photographer. Regardless of the location or venue, I always work to find ways to integrate natural light into my images.

Whenever I convince my clients to get up early to catch the sunrise or sneak away for some candid shots at sunset, I’m thrilled! You just can’t beat the warm glow of the rising or setting sun, the way you look in the golden light, or how it makes everything around you look magical.

Images that reflect YOU

Marie and Chris wanted engagement photos that showcased Philadelphia, the city where they met. Specifically, the Ben Franklin Bridge was on their list for its timeless beauty. We decided to Rice Street Pier at sunset and ended up with gorgeous photos!

In my engagement sessions, I focus on getting candid photos of you and your love having a good time more so than posed photos that can sometimes feel forced and unnatural. I encourage my clients to be free with their person, so that I can capture images that reflect their truest selves. All the while, we’re having fun together and getting to know each other before wedding day!

From Marie

“Our experience with ALN Images has been phenomenal. Despite the overwhelming amount of talented artists out there, I was totally confident in my choice. This was not only because I trusted Alli as a person after our first meeting, but I trusted her work. One thing that immediately struck me about Alli’s work was that the couples in the photos didn’t look overly posed, photoshopped, or airbrushed, they actually looked like themselves! The genuine emotions Alli can capture was exactly what I was hoping to find in a photographer….  Alli just gets it!”

I can’t wait for Marie and Chris’s wedding at Excelsior in Lancaster, PA later this year.
