I’m Alexandra Quinn, a Denver based photographer, who has worked and played with photography all over the world. A special sunset where I grew up on the island of Grenada piqued my interest in photography. Watching the sun go down and trying to capture that moment became a favorite past time and sunsets were the gateway to a whole host of subjects that I could pursue and photograph.
In 2004 I attended University of Florida to pursue a degree in photojournalism. I love the journalistic approach to photography because it is about just capturing the moment and raw emotion as it happens. I try to incorporate that style of photography into my work.
After graduating, I spent two years traveling through Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia taking photos and working as a freelance photographer. It was a life changing experience that opened my eyes to the world and the wonderful cultures, tradition and people within it. Check out my fine art photography at www.alex-quinn.com.
In 2010, I decided to put roots down in Denver, Colorado and start A. Quinn Photography (www.aquinnphotography.com) for weddings, portraits and events. I’ve recently started to dabble with drone photography which is extremely exhilarating and I think is the next big technological step in photography.
A unique opportunity arrived when Google offered me a position with Google Business View. I immediately got involved and became a Google Trusted Photographer, creating 360-degree interactive virtual tours for businesses. I love being a part of a project that is so interactive, offers businesses a new way to connect with customers and enables me to capture the unique presence of each enterprise. (www.photoview360.com)
I now do various types of photography. I don’t necessarily specialize in one because I enjoy the variety of different photography and each individual shoot helps me learn and grow as a photographer. My versatility allows me to bring in elements from each type of photography and implement different techniques into each shoot. While I enjoy photographing all subjects, I am deeply inspired by love and nature. I enjoy seeing people in love and being able to translate the feeling I see between couples to images for them to enjoy forever. I feel very grateful to be able to make a living doing something that I love and creating something that my clients love as well!
The bride and groom got ready at the Brown Palace. It is one of Denver’s oldest buildings, and the rustic feel makes it a popular wedding spot. The ceremony was inside Ellie Caulkins Opera House, under a charming ceiling that glittered above the bride and groom as they exchanged their vows. After the ceremony the bridal party hopped on a party bus and stopped at some of Denver’s most iconic buildings to take photos. Union Station, which had just been renovated, was a unique spot to explore and the Denver Art museums sculpture park where the whole bridal party danced with the "Dancers". I was lucky enough to be the photographer for this group having the time of their lives and I enjoyed capturing them living in the moment.
