alexandra:

Alexandra Rainey was born + raised on the East Coast but fell in love with desert life after making a trip to Big Bend in college. From the solitude of the terrain to the breathtaking night skies, she knew this was a place she would eventually call home.

After roaming around for a few years trying to figure out what she wanted to do, Alex started photographing friends + family members to earn a little extra moolah. Soon enough, clients started coming from near and far to claim a spot in front of her camera, & her side gig quickly turned into something sustainable.

When she’s not photographing beautiful clients, Alex loves to spend as much time as possible exploring every nook + cranny that West Texas has to offer.


BRING ME COFFEE + DONUTS, & WE’LL BE THE BEST OF FRIENDS.
