Hi, I'm Alexis Hamey!

I'm that little lady with big ambitions behind the lens at Alexis Hamey Photography in Bakersfield, California. You'll catch me shooting fun-loving couples and absolutely amazing weddings most days. Yep, I'm literally doing my dream job! Back in 2010, what started as a "photo a day" challenge turned into a full year of shooting creative self-portraits and a wild adventure in finding my greatest passion, capturing unforgettable moments. Two college degrees, two dogs, one husband, and one amazing daughter later, I found myself back on the path to becoming a creative entrepreneur. I followed that burning passion and set sail on the best voyage of my life... Shooting couples, creating art, and building a business that I am proud of. Hiring me means supporting my dream and those sweet faces you see below. PLUS, you get some amazing moments frozen in time to love forever!

Love Notes

“Alexis not only did the engagement photos of my husband and I, but my brother’s high school graduation pictures! She is incredible - full of light and laughter. She makes you feel at ease and free to be yourself. She has such a heart for her clients, and knows how to make memories that they will cherish for a lifetime.”

—Becca + Josh

“Alexis managed to capture so many great photos of our family this year. Even with a semi uncooperative toddler in tow, she got the job done in under one “golden” hour! I also very much appreciated that Alexis would stop what she was doing to adjust my hair and let us know we had lint on our clothes. Her attention to detail is unparalleled.”

—Alyson & Scott

“We chose Alexis to take family photos, and could not be happier with how they turned out. Alexis is passionate about her craft and very professional. She made the experience fun for everyone involved. We would highly recommend Alexis to anyone looking to have professional photos taken.”
