HONEST, AUTHENTIC ARIZONA WEDDING & ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
BASED IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA
It’s not enough to simply take beautiful photos of people in epic scenery and bring forth their personalities. Nearly every photographer can do that these days. What I think matters most is being an mirror, a witness to people’s small and big moments in their lives and capturing those for them. I want to capture moments and photos that mean something to my clients throughout their lives- the photos they hang on their walls to bring them joy when they are going through a tough time and the photos that bring them comfort at the funerals of their loved ones.
For the independent free spirit who loves the wind in your hair. For the person who loves nature but hates trends, who wants to be authentic and real, but not #liveauthentic, down to earth, not a princess. For the person who craves depth and vulnerability, for photos that show who you really are, to look at on the wall and smile and be proud of because “this is me, this is us”. Real.
Although I’m not a wedding planner (though I can recommend some great ones!), I love helping people get started with their wedding or elopement planning adventure. I know how daunting it all can be. I’ve been an Arizona photographer for over 8 years and have lived in Arizona all my life. Click below for helpful information!

OUR PHOTOS WERE INCREDIBLE
“We chose Alyssa because her pictures come out looking natural, both in feel and light, and we were not disappointed. Our photos are incredible, I only wish we had more time to take even more! What’s even better than the quality is that Alyssa and her second shooter were an incredibly calming, go with the flow presence on the big day, which makes a big difference when you have a huge crazy family and everyone is running around every which way. Even my father commented on what a calm person she is (he was also struck at how she can command a group despite the fact that she’s tiny!). Throughout the whole process she was VERY responsive and easy to work with. TBH, Alyssa could charge a lot more than she does, so snap her up before she goes big time. ”

Honesty & authenticity is one of the bravest and daring things. It is vulnerable because society tell us who to be, what to think, how to act from the moment we are born, implicitly or explicitly. Sometimes, the message is “hide your true self behind what’s expected” and do what you’re told. Doing what’s expected is often the forced smile and posey photos that everyone expects, but isn’t a reflection of who you really are. It’s a fake smile, a hollow laugh.
“But I’m not photogenic!” I hear you, I understand. Authenticity isn’t about stiff poses, it’s about connection to each other, and yourself. It’s about having the bravery to be your genuine self without fear of how you’ll look. Because I promise you, when you are authentically yourself, you’ve never looked so good. And best of all, it makes being photographed FUN. Yes, I said the f-word. If you’re ready to be vulnerable, real, honest & brave, scroll through my work and see if it speaks to you. Then email me to get the conversation started.
