What I Offer
Co-creating & preserving blissful moments for the experience-driven
Wedding days are often so fast-paced and packed to the brim with formalities that can feel contrived and distracting. When the relief that it’s finally over sinks in, all that’s left are memories (and photographs) that too feel uninspired.
Couples like you – boundless spirits who find the best versions of themselves in nature and in simple moments – instead are driven by experiences that speak to their core values of authenticity and connection. Their weddings are all about disconnecting from the mundane so they can be fully present with the people and place that will nourish their commitment to one another.
The preservation of this sort of experience is an invaluable investment. It takes a photographer who not only has an eye for detail, but who resonates with these values and will approach the day with the permanence of it all in mind. For couples like you and a unique wedding day like yours, it takes someone who will slow down, discover your why, and arrive with an open heart.
Now when it’s all over, instead of relief it’s a sense of joy that lives on – both in memory and in imagery.
“Alyssa’s images are simply gorgeous. They are wonderfully natural, authentic, and intimate - the very same factors which led us to elope rather than hold a traditional wedding. It’s obvious that she shares our love of nature and has an impeccable eye for capturing the sensation of humans connecting in a natural environment.”

I'm the photographer for you if you...
Want your wedding to be an experience
A tiresome guestlist for an intimate gathering, one day of celebration for a full weekend, and DJ lights for the moon and stars – I too value experiences like this and want to capture your love and how it radiates in this incredible setting.
Value expertise and transparency
As a passionate and avid traveler and professional in the wedding industry, I’ll provide you in-depth planning guides, travel recommendations, and other personalized resources that shepherd you through the planning phase with ease.
Appreciate an eye for detail
I am sensory-sensitive and heavily inspired by the subtle qualities that make your day yours. Candid responses from guests, the nuances of your location, and an artistic representation of your carefully chosen details – these are the photographs we both dream of.
Desire empathy and collaboration
From the moment you inquire through the delivery of your final gallery, I will invest my heart in soul into getting to know you on a deeper level. Questionnaires, touch-base calls, and even following each other on socials – it’s all to leave you with captivating but genuine photography that doesn’t sacrifice experience.
My approach is preservation over performance,
infusing your joy and story into every image
My photography style has been described as timeless, serene, and emotive. What I like to document are the moments you are completely immersed in your surroundings, the moments that bring you a sense of serenity and belonging. This is probably why I love intimate weddings so much – they give you the time and space for deeper connection with every element of your day.
I’ll give you gentle direction when it’s needed but otherwise, I prefer to melt into the background and capture the existence of your day as it naturally unfolds. Throughout the planning process, we’ll build a personal connection so that by the time the camera comes out, I can show up with no expectations and simply be an observer of something instead of a director. Whether it’s you conversing with a good friend, with your partner amongst a desolate landscape, or alone reflecting on the day – these images are inspired by how they are going to make you feel when you look at them years from now.
This is the discovery phase where first you inquire, then we set up a call to get to know each other better and talk through your vision for the perfect day. We’ll secure your date with a contract and deposit – then, the fun starts.
Using your answers to a few questionnaires throughout the planning process, I’ll provide customized planning resources, location suggestions, and a suggested timeline that embody your unique story and how you want it to be captured.
Once we’ve planned the perfectly encapsulating and purposeful day, I’ll take a step back and capture everything exactly how it looks and feels without heavy posing. This day is all about you – and that’s exactly how it should be lived and remembered.
"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."
