Baby & Family Portrait Photography St Albans Harpenden Herts

However you have arrived at Alex Bray Photography, hello!

We are Alex and Gavin and we are custom, on location photographers located in St Albans, Hertfordshire.We travel to our clients throughout the UK to capture their pregnancies, newborn babies, children, families and weddings, in a honest, beautiful, fun and unique way.

We limit the amount of wedding and portrait commissions we take on each year, as we believe our business should not only be about beautiful imagery, but be based on good customer service, where our clients are given the attention they deserve.

We also have a life outside of work, although it often involves a camera!!

We are (patient!) parents to two boys, which gives us the understanding of how to get the best out of your children, whilst knowing how it feels as a parent if your child decides to have a ‘moment’ during a shoot.

Within St Albans, we are significantly involved with scouting, and regularly run international expeditions for our district to southern Africa. Our scouting skills come into play whilst tactfully arranging wedding group shots, to allow you the maximum amount of time with your family and friends to celebrate your wedding.

Photography is precious to us, both within our private, work and volunteer lives. The images we have taken celebrate the happiest times in our lives, but also recorded some of the most poignant moments. We believe life, love and family should be cherished and photography achieves this.
