A + C | Donner Lake Engagement Session

There are at least a thousand joys and privileges that come with being a photographer. But for me, nothing compares to getting a front-row view of the way people love each other. Ashley and Cooper share the sweetest and most genuine love, and it was such an honor to witness it!

For their engagement session, we started on the water at Donner Lake and ended at the Donner Overlook; and in between, we found the most beautiful patch of snow! From top to bottom, their engagement session was an absolute delight. I’m so excited for their Gray’s Crossing wedding this Fall!

Hi, I’m Allexa!

I’m a wife, mom, Gryffindor, and photographer based in Northern California. I’m obsessed with all stages of Happily Ever After and capturing the in-between of people loving each other. I believe that the true magic of photography coexists with the posing; it’s in the forehead kisses, the giggles over unsaid jokes, and the blissful feeling of you & your partner cuddling your newborn baby on your couch; it’s in the way your dad looks at you when he sees you in your wedding dress, and the way your daughter laughs when you tickle her tummy. I’m currently booking for 2022 and would LOVE to chat more- be sure to reach out on my contact page or come say hi on Instagram!
