I love chasing wild spaces and legendary humans who want to explore with nature as their witness. I believe in putting intention, adventure and art behind everything. When something special to you has meaning I love showcasing it and letting your uniqueness shine through. You are not ordinary, why should your engagement, elopement or wedding be?
You don’t even need a reason to snuggle up with your favorite humans + animals to document this chapter in your life. Our time on Earth is short, take the freakin' photos! As our lord and savior, Moira Rose, once said: "Take a thousand pictures of yourself now. You might currently think "Oh, I'm too spooky" but believe me, one day you will look back at those photos with much kinder eyes and say, "Dear god, I was a beautiful thing."
Hi! My name is Lex! I am a destination elopement + intimate wedding photographer based in the mountains of Alaska from the deserts of Arizona! I've spent the last few years traveling to rad places to photograph epic tales of love. I dream of combining the beauty of the great outdoors with my own personal style to bring you photos that are unique to your adventurous spirit and a little bit moody like my cat, Puff. (Don’t tell her I said that) When I'm not galivanting around with a camera in my hand, I'm catching up on the latest conspiracy theory, gazing at the night sky for stars and aliens, ordering door dash an embarrassing amount of times and crossing of bucket list items while roadtripping to every National Park.
For the eclectic & unusual
"Lex was fantastic, highly recommend! She was able to seamlessly fit in with our blended family group and seemed to be everywhere at once, capturing small intimate moments that we would have missed without her. We felt comfortable in front of the camera and nothing felt forced or awkward. Lex was also able to capture our breathtaking ceremony location, and we can't wait to decorate our home with all of our photos!"
"The Hitched Hiker Photography was our perfect choice. We literally hiked out to get the most beautiful cliff views for our wedding photos and they are everything we could have dreamed of capturing. Alexa takes the most authentic, beautiful photos and going back to look at those moments is something so special."
"Alexa is one in a million. From start to finish, she made everything so easy for us and was flexible when we made the decision to elope. She made us feel so comfortable, like we have known her for years. Not only is her personality contagious in the best way possible, but she is a truly gifted photographer. We absolutely love our photos and the memories we will be able to keep forever when looking back at them. Do not hesitate to book with The Hitched Hiker!"
"Alexa was the epitome of fun and easy to work with and her photographs are AMAZING! I've never felt like a moment was more perfectly captured than when I look at my engagement and wedding photos. She made us feel at ease even though we're both a bit camera shy and knew how to bring out the best in us. She's an absolute superstar and the pictures still bring me to tears after looking at them 100 times. Thank you for your extraordinary work, Alexa."
