Hi! I’m Lex, or Lexi, or even Alix!
AN ALTERNATIVE LONDON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER WITH A TWIST
I‘m going to be spending one of the most important days with you, so lets get to know each other. I’m Lex, I’m 30-something London wedding photographer and I luurrrveeee Photography. No, for real. I’ve been a photographer since I was 16 and don’t know anything else. From music photography, to teaching photography to a bunch of a-level students, I live and breath the subject and all it has to offer.
We’re here for a good time, not a long time, so why take everything so seriously? I approach every wedding I photograph like I would everything in my life; with passion and laughter, with a healthy dose of creativity too. From helping with buttons holes to telling the DJ when to queue the first dance, I can read the room well! You get more than just a wedding photographer when you book me, you get an unofficial bridesmaid and usher too! I can recommend so many amazing wedding suppliers from my other side hustle Wedding Breakfast Club that I can help from the minute you email.
"It was like having our very own hype-man and photographer all in one"
Born and raised in South East London, I grew up in Bromley. The home of H.G Wells, Bowie and Billy Idol. I’ve just moved to Leigh-on-Sea in Essex. If I’m not exploring what Southend has to offer then I’m enjoying London and its history. Evenings are spent at the latest street food festival or pop up exhibition with friends.
If you follow me at all on Instagram you’ll know I share my home with my young dog Wednesday. She’s a frenchie/cocker spaniel mix which is a recipe for disaster. And before you ask, sadly she cannot come to your wedding…she would have eaten the cake before you even exchanged rings! Follow me (or her) on Instagram!
What makes me tick?
- Bill Murray
- All things Wes Anderson
I’m a huge movie geek and when I’m not working, I take full advantage of my Odeon limitless card. You can read my top 5 favourite films of 2019 here.
I take huge inspiration from film & television. From movie posts like Bridesmaids that I re-created last year, to the beautiful framing and styling of anything Wes Anderson produces. Wes Anderson is a huge inspiration for me as photographer. From the wide angles, straight lines and stylised colours. This man can do no wrong! I’m also a huge fan of Sam Mendes, Quentin Tarantino and Sofia Coppola.
My dog is named after one of my personal heroins, Wednesday Addams!
I compare wedding photography as a feature film. There’s a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s my job as a story teller (yeah don’t worry I sicked over myself just then too) to tell the story of your wedding day. No wedding is the same and I love that about my job! I like to get stuck in and adapt to your wedding quickly and effortlessly
To keep me entertained whilst I edit or work in my office I listen to a lot of podcasts! Being a true crime freak, I will talk the ears off anyone as we debate the Zodiac Killer! Check out my list of my favourite podcasts to edit to!
