Documentary style

Lexi Nicole & Kelli Rae


//  Oregon, USA

We're Lexi and Kelli, two lifelong best friends who share a passion for freezing those moments in life that really matter.

We believe that building a lasting relationship walks hand-in-hand with growth, intentionality, and genuinity. We find it deeply moving when the couples we work with feel the same.

We are based in Mcminnville, Oregon but as long as we have a place to rest our head, we will happily travel anywhere to document your love.

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s or thing’s mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”

Documentry style photography

Documentary photography is about capturing the essence and messiness of the human experience. Our most authentic storytelling comes from moments of vulnerability; moments that reflect the time, the energy, and the heart that you’ve sowed into your relationship. 

We want to give you a photo of grandma crying as you walk down the aisle and your sister snuggling your newborn nephew — the real and the nitty-gritty stuff. Your authenticity is the gift of a glimpse into your life for the coming generations. You will never know how important you are to those that follow after you.

We are inspired by the photos that make you FEEL.

1. from now on.

2. life after death.

Though this may seem a bit morbid, we hold onto the idea of HEREAFTER as a constant reminder of “memento mori;” impermanence. We like to tie our name to the importance of being present and intentionally documenting memories.

We believe FAITH, RELATIONSHIP, ART and STORYTELLING are the ventures that make life sweet, so we built a business around those values.

We're all about celebrating the present - HERE and the memories - AFTER.

the power of pairs

We love working as a pair - and our clients love it too! 

We have spent years crafting a unique and powerful wedding photography experience. We both have different perspectives and areas of focus that can leave you to rest assured that your day will be captured to the fullest. 

Because there are two of us you can rely on the powerful guarantee of no missed moments. We are able to be in two places at once, ensuring a full gallery at the end of your journey with us. 

Rain, hail or shine, we won’t miss a beat.

"Lexi and Kelli are a tremendous team and were essential in making our wedding so special! I met with Lexi over zoom a few times and she helped me plan through all the bumps in the road. On our wedding day they were punctual, go with the flow, and SO delightful to work with. We LOVE our photos and the details they shot so much. They carefully curated the most perfect gallery and were professional from start to finish."

Allie + Matt

"The girls at Hereafter have a unique ability to enter into the energy of any moment with grounded professionalism. My wedding was captured with a creative eye that gave us a unique array of photos, capturing the very essence of the prayerful, intimate moments and the crazy joyful ones too. From our very first meeting Lexi seemed solely interested in finding out who we were as a couple, what our vision was and how she could help facilitate achieving that."

Maryellen & Michael

"The photographs that Hereafter Photography captured of this special moment of my life are something that my husband, family and I will treasure forever. Both Lexi and Kelli have an artistic ability to see what only someone with their gifting and experience could."

BECCA & John

"Lexi and Kelli photographed my "adventure elopement". Lexi went above and beyond in scouting out locations for me. They both carried their gear for a 5 mile hike to capture the photos of my dreams. The photos they captured are stunning and artsy. I cannot recommend working with them enough, they are beautiful people who create amazing art. I'm so glad I have these photos to remember the day with, they are PERFECT"

Greta & Dillon

"I'm incredibly thankful for my experience with Hereafter Photography. The photos captured continue to be my favorite…ever. It also helps that I felt at ease the entire time. Look forward to hiring them again in the future!"



Your Hereafter adventure awaits...
