I met Alex about eight years ago while shooting a show in town. He is as sweet as they come. Known for his B&W rock photography, I found myself bumping into him often, exchanging smiles while crossing house right to house left at the Showbox, the Croc, or more recently down in Portland for the last Sleater-Kinney show. I got so excited when he told me he was engaged and just about speechless when they chose me to photograph the wedding. Shana is a straight shooting, down to earth, Jet City Rollergirl with red hair. She and Alex initially bonded over their shared love of music, and soon she was the recipient of Alex’s music library via mix cd’s and loaned albums. Once you start sharing your music collection and making mixes, co-habitation is not far behind! They were married this past May at the Golden Gardens Bathhouse.
