Alexa Ocean Ray


Alexa Ocean Ray is my full name; to bring clarification to the letters of my business name. This name gains its relevance when you learn that I was born and raised on the coast by two parents who fished avidly and professionally.

I owe my creative and independent spirit to them, no doubt. Almost nothing feels more valuable to me than the albums of old photos passed down from my parents. Though some may be faded, these printed photos teleport me into another time and help me cherish the memories like I was there. Now, all I want to do is share this magic of photography with others.

Client Love

"Easily the best experience with a photographer to date! Alexa is super personable and very talented at her craft. She made sure my boyfriend and I were comfortable and having fun during our shoot. I will cherish all of these photos forever."

- Sommer Gutierrez


"Absolutely cannot recommend Alexa enough! We scheduled photos with my toddler on the windiest day I’ve ever seen. When we met Alexa she greeted us so warmly and her energy is so calm! She got so many different angles combos and took charge but was so open to my ideas too. As my toddler kept getting crankier, she kept readjusting ideas to get pics. She is just the most incredible photographer I’ve worked with!"

"I could not have asked for a more compassionate or creative photographer for my wedding day. All of my family and friends can not stop raving about our photos; they are truly beautiful."

- Summer Shipley

Beach wedding

"Alexa guided us just enough, but also let us be ourselves and captured us naturally interacting together. She was patient and went above and beyond during the session. I loved the creative and detail shots she got of me with my youngest. I’m so thankful we will have these family pictures to treasure of our 3 kiddos at this age. Book with her!!… you won’t regret it. "

- Maddy Lee


"Hired Alexa to take my engagement photos, she did an absolutely amazing job! She made my fiancé and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. She was very communicative and responsive to any questions or concerns I had. Would definitely hire her again for any future portraits."

- Adriana Carpio

Engagement photo session

"It rained all day, up until the hour before our session, huge overcast and super windy so I just had a feeling that our pictures wouldn’t turn out as good as I was hoping. BUT let me tell you, Alexa went above and beyond and our pictures turned out better than I ever expected, absolutely beautiful. I hope that we can make this a tradition each year!" 

- Mary Shue

"I just want to give a huge thank you to my wonderful, bubbly, wedding photographer Alexa. I never had pictures really bring me back to the actual day it was taken, each time I look at my wedding photos I truly feel and sense the same emotions of the day itself. I could not be more happy with her work and charisma. She truly made this day more special!"

- Isabel  Speciale

Beach wedding

"Alexa worked with us for a family reunion photo session on the beach in South Padre. She was extremely communicative during the booking process and flexible about timing to accommodate the several babies in the group. On the day, she arrived on time with calm energy. We’re very happy with the photos!"
