How It Works
Fill out a contact form or send me an email to inquire about the date and services you have in mind.
We'll schedule your Coffee Call, where I send you and your fiancé a digital gift card for a hot beverage of your choice and then we'll chat about your vision and needs.
Once you've made the choice to book (yay!), you'll be sent
a contract for review and an invoice for a retainer to hold your date and time.
You'll receive a series of questionnaires to dive deep into you, your vision, your style, and your story to help with planning and knowing you better.
You'll receive our planning magazine and we'll help you through location, ideas, experience, and vendor recommendations.
Along the way, you'll get fun personalized packages, a Pinterest board with beautiful ideas, helpful hints to your inbox and more, all to let you know your photographer is thinking of you.
As your special day gets closer, we'll finalize details like your timeline and shot list so that on the big day, you can be stress free and totally in the moment.
It's your day! Woohoo! Enjoy every minute because we're here to capture it. You'll receive a little sneak peek within 24 hours.
Your full gallery will be available digitally within 4 weeks. You'll pick some favorites and we'll get your album ordered
(included in every Broken Antler Photo package)!
We'll follow up to see how you're enjoying married life, thank you for being a friend of ours, and ask for your online review.
MEET THE OWNER & LADY BEHIND THE LENS. THIRD WHEELING ON LOVE STORIES IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES
I'm Alexa Johnson - a multi-passionate, Enneagram 8 mountain girl who became a wedding photographer in a round about way. I was raised in Breckenridge, CO and went to Colorado State to become a veterinarian but my creative spirit overruled. That need to create first took me to event production and marketing - probably why I love details and planning - where I designed and coordinated huge live events like rodeos, concerts, tradeshows, and more. I loved that job and learned so much about business, but finally turned to entrepreneurship when I started this photo biz, a mountain bridal magazine, and a wedding venue.
I first picked up a film camera in grade school and took photos of the beautiful world around me. That led me to starting Broken Antler Photography as a nature and landscape business in 2015. It wasn't until 2017 that I became a lifestyle and portrait photographer and in 2019, when I left the events industry, I niched down again to wild and wonderful love stories. Now I serve couples all over the Rockies Mountains and in beautiful places beyond! I've always got the travel bug, so check my "Travel" tab to see where I'm headed next (plus get a discount and all travel fees waived in some of my favorite places!)
When I'm not photographing love stories, I take full advantage of the gorgeous Colorado weather and enjoy all the fun recreation it has to offer like snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, water sports, and camping. On the opposite side, I'm also a homebody (extroverted introvert here!) and enjoy designing and decorating spaces, trying new recipes, reading a good book by the fire, and working on the newest flip project that my boyfriend and I take on.
There are three ways to reach me and connect! Fill out a contact form, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 970-471-5727. I'd love to buy you a coffee, cocktail, or taco and be friends!
