"Alexa achieves the impossible time and time again! Working with children as everyone knows (!) is not easy and yet she has an ability to get all the kids engaged and on side, capturing photos that are relaxed, fun and natural. She works with you and your family, in your home or in a local park and really did capture the spirit of our cheeky children! So many family and far away friends have enjoyed the photos since and we used lots of them for Christmas presents this year. In addition we have some wonderful framed photos at home that we love. THANK YOU ALEXA."

"We had a lot of fun during our family photo shoot and this shone through in the photographs. You have really captured the day perfectly and the backdrop was beautiful, especially as you captured the light so well. All our friends comment on such visually stunning shots. Not only does the work on your website truly reflect the style and quality of the photos you take, your whole approach is incredibly professional, yet relaxed. You really love your work and it shows. I cannot recommend Alexa highly enough and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you so much Alexa!"
"Following Alexa’s professional and warm approach to photographing our wedding and the wonderful result, we felt very comfortable to ask her for a photoshoot with our daughter Eve and subsequently our son Eliyah. The results were once again wonderful. Alexa is not only a lovely and friendly person but a gifted photographer, who is incredibly patient with small babies and toddlers. The photo shoots were lots of fun as well.
We would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is a joy to work with and has the ability to put you at ease with her caring and lovely approach. Thank you again for everything.

"I have to be honest, I really do not like having my photo taken! The photoshoot I set up with Alexa Kidd-May was my first experience of feeling comfortable in front of the camera. She was friendly, made me feel comfortable, had clear ideas and venues for different shots and she was open to all my suggestions. As we chatted away, I somehow kept forgetting what I was actually there for; I certainly had no idea how many pictures she had taken! I received the proofs very quickly and Alexa was willing to work on any photos I asked her to. What is there not to like? I would and have highly recommended her to my colleagues and friends."
Katherine, Southbank, London
"Being photographed by Alexa was a really great experience and I was thrilled with the pictures. As a camera-shy introvert I am very used to seeing pictures of myself with a stern or ironic expression and it is all due to her easy manner and skillful timing that I managed to be relaxed and not overperforming. The locations were a perfect choice, the beautiful colours of Greenwich Park and the majestic setting of the Old Royal Naval College gave a great sense of depth. At the end of the shoot there were so many different images and very subtle variations and the presentation on the memory stick in different file sizes and with a video montage was a beautiful touch!"
Roger, Greenwich, London
"I was delighted with the publicity photographs Alexa took. She immediately put me at ease during the shoot and was very economical with time so that in the end I had many photos of different settings and poses I could use. She has a very calm approach and an excellent eye for detail. It was very easy to access the photos once they were ready. I was over the moon with the results of our shoot and would recommend her to anyone."
Miriam, Covent Garden, London
"Chris and I wanted photos that captured our big day, natural and almost documentary style, nothing that was too staged or forced: Alexa totally understood what we were after and gave us a wonderful selection of photographs that really reflected the mood and events of our wedding. I would 100% recommend doing the engagement shoot too, pictures were absolutely fabulous and it really helped us both relax in front of the camera. I can't recommend Alexa enough, she's very skilled at what she does but more importantly a pleasure to work with."
Shenim and Chris, Oxo Tower, London
"We hired Alexa based on the beautiful photos in her portfolio. What we didn't realise until the engagement shoot, is the truly personal service Alexa would give. She took so much time and care to understand what we wanted and created the best photos I have ever seen. They not only captured us as a couple, and our family but also our amazing surroundings and venue. And most importantly, made it fun!"
Vicki and Dave, Tower Bridge, London
"From the moment we met Alexa at our reception venue to view her work we knew we had made the right choice for our wedding photographer. She wanted to meet us prior to our wedding to really understand what we wanted from our day and to ensure that she was able to deliver on it and that meant the world to us. We had a pre wedding shoot by our house and Alexa used this opportunity to get us both comfortable with having our photos taken and ensure that on our big day we were as relaxed as possible. She had the ability and talent to capture moments and memories from our big day and delivered the most amazing record of what can only be described as the best party we've been to! Thank you so much for putting us at ease, capturing amazing memories for us and being an integral part of our special day xxx."
