ALEX GORDIAS Photography & Studio

Newport Wedding Photographer
truthful documentary film like style and timeless portraits

Hello, and welcome. My name is Alex. I’m a Newport Wedding photographer. My team and I work all over New England and beyond. Newport is the iconic place for weddings: mansions are spectacular, and the scenery is breathtaking. The harbor, and variety of great views make a great backdrop for your wedding. I’ve been photographing weddings in Newport for years. It’s incredible.

I love to spend time in Newport, not only as a photographer. This experience helps me to know more secret gems for implementing in my approach. Even the Downtown of Newport can be the perfect backdrop for your photos. Bell Mer, Castle Hill, Rosecliff, and The Elms became one of my favorites.  If you are considering exploring some more locations all over the state, here is my guide for 35 Best Rhode Island Wedding Venues.


The approach:

Documentary - Photojournalistic style

As Top-3 Massachusetts Wedding Photojournalist, I always strive to capture candid moments to make the story unique. Fun moments, tears of joy, real life.
Bring a contemporary or editorial style for some photos:
Creating art images, finding angles, and styling classic portraits with different perspectives. Capturing magazine-style portraits.


Focusing on the timeline, working with a questionnaire to make sure almost every moment has been captured. (usually, I have two appointments with the clients - the first for introduction and the last one before the wedding day) This approach is good for checking the details and helps to capture staged photos, formal family pictures, and details. Everything is covered.

Cinematic style and Timeless Style

We are uncovering the locations, scenes, portraits & light - telling the whole story from where to how. Timeless style and Editing.


I believe that a wedding gallery should be beautiful and diverse at the same time. The story of a day is not just a collection of staged photos and (or) beautiful portraits that can essentially be taken quickly and easily.
The central focus point is dull. It kills variety and makes all the photos look the same. Combining different approaches helps the photographer tell the day's story interestingly and uniquely.
