The Girl Behind the Lens
"Live in true devotion to one another, loving each other as sisters and brothers. Be first to honor others by putting them first."
Hello! My name is Alexandra Joplin! I am the owner and photographer behind ALLEEJ! I am married to an amazing man, Dusty Joplin, and we have been married since July 14th, 2012. Dusty is a worship leader at our home church, Church on The Rock, here in Lubbock, TX. I adore that He is not only my hubby, but also the one who leads me in worship every week. It’s one of my favorite things :). We have two dogs, Sophie + Endy, and a baby girl, Hazel Joy Joplin, that we“officially”adopted on October 6th, 2017. She’s changed our world, and has been THE greatest gift we've ever received. I am a born and raised "Lubbock-ite" & a Texas Tech + Pi Beta Phi Alumni. I am a lover of good food, good music, travel (it's an obsession), community, and hosting people in our home. I have a fun little Instagram called @Thehappbeehost where I share my passion for people and hosting! Subscribe to the newsletter, and you'll get some of that and more in your inbox every once in awhile ;).
I have been in the photography business for 8 incredible years, and ALLEEJ has been established for 5 of those. I am passionate about offering an incredible experience, and giving my clients a sure peace & confidence that they made the right choice in photography. You will be well educated, feel like rockstars in front of my camera, and get the most out of your photography! Not only that, but you will receive quality images that you can be proud of & have an unforgettable experience that is worth your investment. I absolutely adore this work, and adore the incredible people I have the honor of working with. People like YOU! I started out in photography with a passion to preserve memories. I grew up taking pictures of anything and everything, especially pictures on my Papa's farm. Something in me knew it mattered, and I know now that I wasn't wrong. Pictures matter! They hold soooo much POWER. They preserve memories, feelings, faces, moments, and seasons in life that are so so fleeting. This is why you want to invest in a photographer who will be able to execute and preserve these powerful moments that you can't get back. To have the honor of walking with you in some of the most special seasons of your life, and preserving all of the love and joy to be experienced is something I am deeply deeply grateful to do.
When clients look at their pictures, I want them to feel known, seen, and beautiful. When couples see their wedding + Engagement pictures, I want them to be transported back to why they fell in love in the first place. I want them to experience a deeper connectedness, and a security in their relationship, to feel a greater love... I believe, that's the power photography has.
Its humbling to be trusted with telling people’s stories through photography, and I would be honored to be trusted with yours! I can't wait to hear your story, and call you friend!
