Hi, I'm Alexis Hamey!
I'm that little lady with big personality behind the lens at Alexis Hamey Photography in Bakersfield, California. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Vito, and mama to our tiny and mighty, Tegan Lee. Back in 2010, what started as a "photo of the day" challenge turned into 365 consecutive days of shooting creative self-portraits with a Canon Powershot and tripod that blossomed into a lifetime love for photography. I've continued that path slowly over the years all while going to California State University, Bakersfield, earning a bachelor's and Master's degree in education, having my dream wedding in Big Sur, teaching elementary school for five years, and best of all, becoming a mama. Something in me couldn't continue to work for anyone but myself after gaining the perspective of parenthood, I had to follow that burning passion and set that example for my family. I've jumped in with both feet by building Alexis Hamey Photography as a full-time business! Hiring me means supporting my dream and those sweet faces you see below. PLUS, you get some amazing moments frozen in time for you to love forever!
“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.”
