Everything your photographer wants you to know to get the best possible photos on your wedding day! // PRESENTED BY LEXIA FRANK
Lexia Frank is a highly sought after fine art wedding and portrait film photographer, who regularly shoots throughout the continental United States as well as internationally. In 2011 Lexia won the prestigious Canon Project Imagin8ion Contest chosen by Ron Howard as the winner from amongst almost 100,000 photographs. The chosen photograph went on to inspire the award winning film “When You Find Me”, directed by Academy Award winning director Ron Howard and Bryce Dallas Howard. Ron Howard says about Lexia’s work: “It’s dramatic, it’s utterly human, powerfully relatable. (Her work) spoke so pointedly, powerfully, to a very relatable set of human emotions.”
She, as well as her work, have been featured in numerous publications and wedding blogs - everything from Martha Stewart Weddings and The Knot to Style Me Pretty and Destination I Do. Her destination work has taken her all over the world- to Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and beyond. In the future she hopes to continue to tell couples’ stories photographically here in the US and beyond, and to teach her three young children the art of slowing down to appreciate the beauty that is this life.
