After graduating from Penn Sate with a degree in photojournalism, Lexi traveled 4000 miles away from home with a couple hundred dollars, a camera and a dream. For the last 6 months, she has been working as the Creative Director at Blinnk Photography at the Marriott Beach Vacation Club in Ko Olina where she captures families, couples, engagements and other various portraits on a daily basis. She loves being creative with her work and trying new things, but she says the best part about her job is meeting and working with new people from around the world and capturing them in their most natural element.
I love connecting with my subjects and getting to know their story. I'm always so honored to be chosen to capture my client's photo ideas and dreams, and the better I get to know them, the better their pictures turn out. I believe that getting to know your subject and establishing that sense of trust is extremely important. It also ensures for a great time!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Name the type of shoot and I've probably done it. Families, couples, headshot, baby/children, maternity, surprise engagements, sunrise, sunset, graduation, lifestyle and candid/natural photography are just to name a few. I can admit I haven't done any skydiving photography, so there's one.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have worked with many instagram influencers and been featured on many Hawaii travel and photography Instagram accounts.
