Need a Photographer for your Wedding Day?
My husband and I were looking for a photographer for our wedding last April. We were looking for a professional that had a style, someone who could create a story of our special day using pictures. We didn't want our wedding photo album to be a show of guests standing in front of a camera, smiling. We chose Alex Class, from The Art of Now based on his previous work that we saw online and a few recommendations that we read. Alex is a really nice guy - with a really cool beard (many wedding guests thought the same), who had to be told to stop taking photos and take a moment to eat the meal!! We were over the moon when we received our photos back from Alex...all 773 of them! They were all so professional and beautiful. All different styles and each one telling the story of our special day. We would choose this guy again...and again. We highly recommend him 👍🏻

I was very impressed and happy
I had been recommended by another Photographer of his excellent skills as a photographer dealing with weddings, and as I needed someone for my own wedding, I therefore employed them. I was very impressed and happy with his production of videoing photography as he is fully qualified professional in his job and certainly would recommend him, without any hesitation, with his great experience as he catches that special effect that is so different in comparison to any other photographers.

Alex is such a creative and inspiring photographer
Alex is such a creative and inspiring photographer whom we've known in Italy in his younger days as a talented musician too. He's developed into a brilliant photographer who goes out of his way to capture that special event and those special emotions. He has an amazing eye for detail and doesn't miss anything. We are delighted with all our photos. Highly recommend him if you want that special photo, and such a lovely guy too!

Highly recommended!!
Just wow! Alex and Mel captured every single moment of our wedding in such way that we couldn't have found any better. We were a crazy bunch and they fitted in perfectly. Loved how they would go the extra mile to make us happy. They was great, easy to talk to and completely understood what we were after. They worked diligently and blended into the background so that they were hardly noticeable as they took photos. Everyone loved them. Both photos and Alex and Mel. Highly recommended!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Never forget two ladies getting married in Italy at the beach. Unbelievably amazing wedding. Never forget following them into the sea right up to our necks to take some amazingly creative images while the sun was setting in the water.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

creative - stylish - in the moment - artistic - natural

What about your business are you most proud of?

The incredible chemistry with my business partner. It makes our weddings very special, fun and arty. Let's us connect with bride and groom in such an amazing way that the day just goes so smoothly and have a great bond with everyone on the day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Never save on having 2 photographers unless you only have 50 guests at your wedding! We say that all the time. This is why we actually try and keep our prices quite low when we work in two because we know exactly how intense a long wedding can be and want to offer the most amazing results at an affordable price. Plus, when we're on our own we usually deliver a minimum of 500 images, whilst in two we easily double that and some times even more. And all the images will come edited and post produced.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Pre wedding consultation is quite an essential moment. We like to introduce ourselves and have a chat, get to know who you are and what you liked about our images. The next step is most probably going to be taking images of bride and groom getting ready, then one of us usually goes off to the ceremony venue at some point, the other follows the bride in the car so we never miss anything. Then from Ceremony to First dance it's usually all smooth. Then once we are happy with what we have we'll be on our way back to start editing and getting the images to you ASAP. Depending on the period of the year in which your wedding is it might take a little longer to get everything to you. But normally takes between 4 to 6 weeks in typical summer months and half during the rest of the year. Once the images are ready, we'll get your personal gallery protected by password ready and you'll be able to proof all the images. You can download them directly from there, in two versions. High resolution and Low resolution specially resized for social media. Unlike many other photographers, our high resolution images are all print-ready so you can freely print them. We do though, have the most amazing album, that is a beautiful 40x20 16:9, cinematic style one. Holds normally between 200 and 300 images. And we include a phone app with your favourite 100 selected images to share with friends and relatives. All our images come edited and post produced.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Bride and Groom running down the runway on a vespa while a small plane was following them!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

We love rain as well as the sun. And believe it or not, photos can be incredibly artistic and creative in the rain. We always find some great ideas. Nothing will stop us.
