I believe photos should be snippets of life in real time. They're meant to transport you back to that very moment. Art is meant to tell a story. Art is meant to make you feel. 

I believe...

ART IS MEANT TO
BE FELT

Believe it or not, your photographer isn’t just there to take photos of you on your day (wait really?!) I mean yes, that's our main job, but I’m also here to guide you. I help give you recommendations and share my expertise to make sure your wedding or session runs as smoothly as possible and you get the images you deserve. For weddings, we’ll meet to plan out your day-of timeline (did you see my Timeline Planning Guide freebie?) I’ll help you pick out your locations, plan the studio setup and help style outfits for your portrait session. And I’ll be your hype girl - we spend so much time together that it is so important to me to develop a relationship with each and every one of my clients. The better I know you, the more your photos will portray you.

So what's the process like?

how it works

I don’t like to put a set number on how many images you will receive because every session/wedding is different. However on average, you will receive roughly 300 images for weddings and 50 images for sessions (again, mostly dependent on time).

+ how many images do i receive?

No. I don’t give out raw images because editing is half of the process that goes into making my photos what they are. You will receive fully edited images when your final gallery is delivered. I promise to never leave anything out and if you feel I may have missed something, don't hesitate to ask.

+ what if we need to cancel?

It is very important that you have your wedding/elopement venue booked and a date solidified prior to booking your photographer. I require a non-refundable retainer to hold your date that will not be returned should you need to cancel. If you need to change the date, additional charges will be applied. Sessions may be rescheduled at my discretion as long as I have availability. But just note - I'm always down to dance in the rain.

+ Do you give raw images

Yes! We will definitely chat before your wedding or session to make sure we are both on the same page. Wedding clients will receive a guide after booking with LOADS of helpful planning information. In the meantime there’s a sweet freebie on my home page with example timelines so you can get started on your own. For sessions, I can offer location recommendations as well as some outfit inspo and tips!

Frequently Asked Questions

She was extremely responsive, let us have our space on our wedding day but also somehow didn't miss a moment and captured it in the most beautiful way. Wedding planning isn't easy, but I NEVER had to worry about the photography portion because Alyssa is great at communicating and planning ahead.

Alyssa is the best we could have asked for...

Alyssa was our first vendor we booked for our wedding day. We loved her style of photography and could tell she really takes the time to get to know her couples. We were pleasantly proven right during the entire process, from our engagement session to our wedding day and all of the planning moments in between.

Alyssa was our first vendor we booked...

Words cannot describe how happy I am with the pictures we got back from Alyssa from our wedding. From the get-go she was so genuine and easy to work with. She responded quickly to questions and made sure to meet with us a few times so we got to know her prior to our wedding. One thing that was great about working with Alyssa was how excited she was for us and that positive energy came through in her pictures. 

I would work with Alyssa again in a second...
