- the girl behind the lens -

Hello and welcome! I’m so happy you’re here.

I’m Lex, an avid yogi, mama-to-be, and the photographer behind Lex Nelson Photography. I am based in Yarmouth, Maine but travel all over the greater New England area.  I am a hybrid photographer, shooting both film and digital, to create beautiful and timeless images. I have a special fondness for intimate and non-traditional weddings. I am inspired by natural light, outdoor ceremonies, and the beautiful Maine coast. Being out on the ocean is my happy place and I believe sunshine is good for the soul.

After graduating from Northeastern University in Boston with a BFA in Digital Media,  I’ve worked as a graphic designer, bridesmaid stylist, wedding photographer assistant, and second shooter.  Starting my own business was something I dreamed of doing and I still can’t believe that I made it happen. My job as a photographer allows me to witness the joy in your relationship, and the sweetness of your love story.  I never cease to be moved by these moments.

If you have questions, let’s talk!

xo, Lex
