Newfoundland Elopement Photographer

Alex Stead is an elopement photographer based in St. John's, NL, and available for elopements and intimate weddings in Bonavista, Gros Morne, and all over this beautiful province.

As a couple who are usually uncomfortable when a camera is around, Alex managed to make us feel so unbelievably at ease. We honestly hardly even noticed the camera at all as Alex captured every little magic moment that you didn’t even realize happened. From getting ready to the first dance and everything in between, Alex pulled it all together and captured our perfect day.

I'm not even sure where to start. I'm blown away by these photos. 

Thank you for your guidance, knowledge and enthusiasm.

You helped us execute a simple, stress-free ceremony so we could have a chill day where we  focused on one another.

Sarah and Emily

Besides her obvious and outstanding talent for photography, I can promise you’ll want to be her friend within 5 minutes of talking to her. Through our meetings with her and on our wedding day; we laughed, chatted about our favourite books, profs, sandwiches... all deadly stuff. It didn’t feel as though we had a stranger capturing us on our special day, it felt like we had one of our friends.

hey there,

I'm Alex Stead

I've been a photographer for 14 years, and in that time I've photographed over 500 weddings, as well as partnered with brands like LuluLemon, Walmart, and Macleans. I spend most of my time exploring this island by foot and in my truck camper, scouting out the most beautiful unknown locations.

My goal is to make sure that you have the best possible day, and gorgeous photos to remember it by. I'll be your tour guide, taking you to the hidden gems of this province and ensuring that in your wedding photos you'll look effortlessly in love in the most incredible places.

When I'm not on the road, you can usually find me in a hammock curled up with a good book and a cold beer.

Book a call with me to chat about your elopement

got questions?

We have NO idea where to start with our planning! Can you help?

When you work with me, I am both your wedding AND tour guide. I'll help you plan your trip to Newfoundland, including recommendations for other vendors, places to stay and eat, and more.

We are SO awkward in front of the camera. Can you make us look... less terrible?

100% of the couples I work with are not models. And almost every single person that you see in my gallery has said the same. Your elopement will be relaxed, with minimal posing - just enough to make sure we get your good angles. :)

How much is all of this?

Elopement packages for 2024 start at $3200. If you're having a *really* teeny wedding, we can put together a custom package for you.

You have absolutely blown it out of the park with our wedding photos and we truly cannot thank you enough.

As nurses we see all too often that you don’t know what’s coming next, and we are so grateful to have these memories of the most beautiful day spent with friends and family.

We haven’t stopped looking at them and finding new favourites each time.
