Alexa Karen

Hello! I'm so happy you're here. I'm Alexa, photographer and lifestyle blogger. I specialize in capturing intimate + luxe weddings, chic portraits, as well as editorial imagery for lifestyle, fashion, and home brands. Photography is my favorite way of sharing the beauty I see and how it inspires me. My primary sources of inspiration are travel, architecture, and fashion.

My love for finding, capturing, and creating beauty extends beyond my business and into my personal everyday. This is the space I've designed to showcase it all, from my client work to travel diaries, fashion inspiration and beauty tips. Everything under the Alexa Karen brand is designed to create and inspire beauty, which is exactly my hope for the time you spend here.
