"Lexi was the photographer for our wedding, and what an amazing job she did.  She set the tone for the entire wedding with her enthusiasm and energy.  While there were plenty of posed photos (but not too many, which was appreciated), the value she added was through the impromptu photos she took throughout the process.  When viewing the photos it felt like watching a movie.  Lexi's photos told a story and captured so many moments.  Another thing she was able to do was to capture different lighting during the day that added a sizzle factor to the photos.  We would highly recommend Lexi to for anyone contemplating a wedding".

"We cannot recommend Lexi highly enough as a photographer. She did a fantastic job with our wedding photos! She was flexible in working with us in advance to create a custom package that met our needs exactly. She showed up on time, actually a few minutes early. She was very professional but also friendly and charming. We had a very small wedding and were afraid ahead of time that a photographer might feel intrusive. That never happened for a second. And we could not be happier with the finished product. The pictures are truly lovely. You will not find anyone better than Lexi to take your wedding pictures!"

"Lexi is an amazing wedding photographer! Not only was the quality of her photography top notch, but she was a calming and non-intrusive presence during the ceremony that we appreciated very much. She did a fantastic job getting the central shots we wanted without being obtrusive herself. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful and professional wedding photographer."

"Lexi was a delight to work with in photographing our wedding. She was so responsive in the planning stages and the results were breathtaking! It was a beautiful outdoor wedding so the sunset provided the perfect background for the pictures. She captured the emotion and the beauty of the night perfectly! Many of the guests remarked how she moved through the crowd taking pictures non-stop without being intrusive."

Linda & John


"I cannot speak highly enough about Lexi as a photographer or as a person. We had a planned elopement in February and weren't sure what to expect with a photographer in such an intimate setting. She captured our day perfectly, and her sparkling, genuine personality put us at ease immediately. She made posing for pictures fun, something neither of us thought would be possible. And what pictures they are! The colors and angles are amazing, capturing all the beauty of New Mexico and of our emotions on that day. She was flexible with us on the shooting time as well as on our package. She even ended up being one of the witnesses to our marriage. I highly recommend her!"

"Lexi was referred to us when we came to Santa Fe to get married from Kansas City, Missouri, and we couldn't be any happier. Her correspondences with us were timely, friendly, and extremely professional, and in person she was simply amazing. The quality of her work was above and beyond jaw dropping, and she had proofs ready for us exactly when she said they would be ready. Absolutely everything about the experience was top notch; we highly recommend her services. Thank you, Lexi!"

Zach & Stephanie


"Lexi is wonderful. She took the photos of our just us wedding at the Loretto Chapel this summer. As it was just us and a few kind strangers, we were a bit nervous about having photos taken, but Lexi really helped put us at ease. As a result, we now have beautiful, natural images that truly capture the emotion of our happy day - just what we were hoping for. We highly recommend Vivi Photography - professional, personable, exceptional!"
