your story and how it's preserved
should encapsulate
who you are at your best

Yes, you’re going to get photos, but that’s not what you’re really wanting – the heart and soul of those photos is something so much bigger.

This is the preservation of who you are and of this transcending moment that you want to remember and later share with others.

because what you want from me – IS SO MUCH MORE THAN just photos

You want someone who can preserve the most meaningful moments in your life in a way that’s honest to your personalities, dreams, and values.

The photos you want are going to come from a place where you were truly living a moment, and there was someone there to capture that storyline as it naturally unfolded.

Imagine an experience with...

Deep connections

Personalized location suggestions that permit vulnerability and intimacy so you can focus on what’s actually right in front of you on such an important day – each other, and your commitment

Intentional Experiences

Planning resources to help you build a purposeful itinerary filled with locations and activities that reveal the meaning and significance of this day

Timeless photos

A photographer who encourages minimal posing so you leave with photos that wholly encapsulate your personalities and this experience you’ve so intentionally designed together

About - Alyssa Vanzo Photographer

Traveling Elopement Photographer based in Rochester New York

MEET Alyssa

Hi – my name is Alyssa and I’m a photographer who serves couples that crave a deeper connection with both each other and their photographs. I am based in Upstate (Rochester) New York but spend most of my professional time traveling the country and the world!

I chose to specialize in elopements + intimate weddings because I believe so strongly in their ability to reveal the gravity of love and human connection.

What I offer is not just a photography package – I encourage my couples to think bigger, connect deeper, and live intentionally.

I guide all of my couples through the process of building an experience that celebrates who and where they are right now in both love and life, then preserve that experience through documentary-style photographs.

"Alyssa was there for us at every step of the planning process, checking in and talking through ideas and making sure that we were thinking through the whole process of our elopement experience and getting it very goal oriented and purposeful... This is not something you can get from just any photographer. That kind of intention is so special and priceless."

"Alyssa wowed us with her raw talent. Not only did she capture our day perfectly, but she also made our photoshoot session so enjoyable and effortless. She had been very present in our planning process since day one and provided us with a lot of support. The photos turned out spectacularly - something we will treasure for a lifetime."
