What story do you want to remember?

Chances are, the reason you’re hiring a photographer isn’t even for the photos.

You’re hiring a photographer because you want to preserve a story, a feeling to relive.

You want to be able to relive a version of yourselves and your relationship that means so much in the overall journey.

Finding someone to do that – it’s so much more than a dollar sign.

You want to hire a photographer who values marriage and this phase of your relationship as much as you do. It’s about finding someone who not only understands you, but is able to transcend your story into a tangible product that is as unique and emotive as you’ve lived it.

Alyssa Vanzo | Upstate NY Elopement Photographer

LGBTQ Friendly


Connection, experience, and preservation
— that's what I'm all about

Hi, I’m Alyssa and I’m an intimate wedding + elopement photographer based in Rochester, NY who’s obsessed with the aspect of human connection. It serves as my biggest inspiration and driver of all my work. To me, there’s no better subject than two people deeply connected in a place they can call their own.

I love working with couples who value their elopement day just the same even if it wasn’t being photographed. Because to you, photography is but a time capsule to cherish and reflect on the beautiful day you created together. Sure, you’ll later be excited to share them with your loved ones but you know the meaning this day holds for you and you can’t wait to fully experience each and every little emotion.

Super 8 Highlight Film

Starting at $1000

The shakiness, the flicker of the grain, the slight overexposure… film takes your memories and gives them life in a way that no photo can ever do. Which is why I felt so compelled to offer it as an add-on to any of my elopement packages.

This isn’t a videography service per say, but in a way, it might be better. What I capture is random and meant to feel more like a dream or memory and less like a scripted film:

  • 3-5 minute highlight film composed of 8mm film video clips
  • addition of music and real audio clips captured from your day
  • video delivered with your photo gallery within 4-6 weeks of your day
Currently only available as an add-on to any elopement package.

Fine Art Albums

Starting at $1000

Your wedding photos meant to be held in your hands, kept in a safe place, and enjoyed by friends and loved ones whenever they come visit. They’re meant to be passed down as heirlooms, and get softer with age. You’re meant to press flowers in your album, and enjoy the pages crease as they’re enjoyed and loved.

With the delivery of your final image gallery, I will send an initial proof that I designed using images for your day that I feel encapsulate your story best. You will be able to request changes and we will go back and forth until you are totally happy. Then it will be sent to production before arriving at your door-step to be enjoyed and loved for years to come.

What’s included:

  • Choice of 10×10 square or 9×12 portrait
  • 15 spreads (30 pages)
  • Choice of Cover Material
  • Choice of Cover Design & Debossing

Frequent Questions

In what ways will you help us throughout the planning process?

In a word – everything.

To start, I’ll help you find the perfect location to elope, GPS coordinates and all. Then, we’ll shop together for lodging accommodations, travel arrangements, and I’ll even suggest vendor recommendations as you need them.

As soon as you book, I’ll also send you an in-depth planning guide, which you can reference throughout your planning. It answers almost any question you could ever ask about eloping.

What if we only need an hour or two of coverage?

The way I have my elopement and wedding packages set up is very intentional. For both local and destination locations, I offer half-day, full-day and multi-day options so you can plan your day around your schedule rather than a restricted number of hours you booked your photographer.

The reason I start my packages at a half day instead of only an hour or two is because it is virtually impossible to preserve the full story of your elopement day in this short period of time.

What are you going to do before your ceremony, or how are you going to celebrate after? Probably something special, and you deserve to be able to relive all of it.

Can our elopement include friends and family?

Of course – Eloping doesn’t have to mean sacrificing the presence and support of loved ones in favor of a beautiful and unique experience.

I love helping all of my couples find a way to include their loved ones, whether or not they’re physically present on the elopement day. Elopements are not about exclusion, and there are so many ways to get the best of both worlds.

Do you offer customized packages?

Because every story is different, there’s really no package or set of packages I could ever offer that would be good enough for everyone.

All of my offerings are broken down “a la carte” style so everyone is able to build their own package based on their own unique needs and priorities. However, sometimes even this isn’t enough.

If you feel a deep connection with my work, I’m always open to talk about things like coverage and budget. You can also see where I’m already traveling to here, where you can book a session without travel fees.
