hi! i'm lexi!

I am originally from Marietta, GA and have lived in California for almost 7 years. I met my husband Luke in Georgia shortly before he left for Navy boot camp in Illinois. After 2 years of long distance, we finally got married and moved to sunny San Diego. Our next adventure takes us to Monterey, California and we are so excited to create new memories!

My husband bought me a Nikon dslr camera while he was deployed and I instantly put it to use! The day after I got my camera, I went to the San Diego music festival, Kaaboo, and took pictures of as many artists and performers as I could! Fast forward to being asked to shoot a military homecoming in 2018 & me finding my niche in couples--here we are!

So, who is Lexi Mathews? I’ll give you a little peek into who I am as an artist and person. 


One of my main things I love about this job is creating memories and connections with my clients. I strive to be more than just your photographer, I want to be your friend as well! At a shoot, you’ll most likely hear me joking around and trying to make you as comfortable as possible so you can get the best photos to cherish for years to come. My work is for the laid back and fellow goofballs that want to have a good time. 

Lexi Hope Photography specializes in intimate weddings & elopements. I will do my best to capture both the extravagant, big moments in your lives as well as the little, beautiful details that you’ll want to look back on. My style stays true to you and your pictures won’t get lost in the editing. If you like candid, romantic, emotional pictures that you can look back on and remember those moments, message me and let’s get started!


I have to tell you...

enough about me.

I want to get to know YOU AND YOUR LOVE STORY!
