my story

Hi, I'm Alejandra [she/her] Your not so traditional elopement and wedding cinematographer //  Based in Chicago and always with my camera ready to travel around the US and worldwide to capture elopements and weddings. I love traveling and documenting real love. I’m a sucker for love stories, I love the feeling of walking with my camera around my neck and capturing unique and memorable moments. When I’m not with my camera or behind my computer editing for countless hours, you can either find me playing with my dogs (I have 3 beautiful Siberian Huskies, yeah I know 3!), making art and listening to indie rock or dancing to pop punk.

There's nothing I can say to give Alejandra justice for all that she did for our wedding! From the start Alejandra was very easy to communicate with and was always available to talk. When we booked she also suggested that we do a "save the date" video as we did not need her for the full 10 hours. This was such an awesome idea and something I had never heard of! Her work was truly amazing and it was the perfect opportunity for her and the photographer to meet and get acquainted with each other. On the day of the wedding Alejandra showed up on time and everything went so smoothly! She even had a 2nd videographer show up later to help shoot our wedding which was an unexpected surprise! We received our video a few days later and were absolutely blown away by her work and how fast she was able to provide us with our video! Our day would not have been the same without her! She worked so well with everyone and was such a joy to be around the entire day! It is important to mention that our wedding was an all outdoor wedding from ceremony through reception and it was 110 degrees out! Not once did Alejandra complain or get upset she smiled through the entire day! We couldn't recommend Alejandra more, from her communication, to work ethic, to her video's she deserves 10 STARS! We love our video and cannot wait to watch it and show our children and children's children one day!

"Let’s just say I have watched our wedding highlight video at least a hundred times and we just got it last week. And I cried the first time I saw it. I was on the fence for awhile whether or not to hire a videographer but I am beyond happy that I went with This Charming Heart. Alejandra was so easy to work with, was really responsive both before and after the wedding, and worked really well with my photographer the day of. She and her assistant are the type of videographers who somehow manage to get all of the best shots without being in your face about it- a lot of my guests didn’t even know we had a videographer- which was really important to me. Her work is just absolutely stunning and I would highly recommend This Charming Heart if you are looking for an artistic and romantic video to remember your special day!!"
