Arizona Wedding Photographer

Documentary, Moment-based story-telling

Hey there,

Nice to meet you, I´m Alyssa.

My style is candid, documentary and real.

This is what inspires me. A lot of photographers say this of course, but I want you to be able to relive your wedding day through your photos. It’s not enough these days to just take “pretty photos”- most photographers can do that. But what about the small moments and big moments that happen during your wedding day? These take genuine skill, both technical and creative, to capture that comes from a lot of hard work and time shooting real weddings.
Some of the most valuable photos from my own wedding were the candid moments that happened throughout the day, many of these moments I never even witnessed myself. These moments summarize people as a whole, and relationships. These photos help me relive the day, the emotions and remember the people – some of which have passed away, including my grandparents and our beloved dogs that were in our wedding & engagement photos. So much has changed since our wedding and my wedding photos help me remember the good things and also remind myself of the reasons I married my husband and help me get through the challenging days.

Our wedding photos show who we are as people. Yes, of course I love our wedding portraits of us together. But they are SO MUCH more than pretty photos, and I would trade all of our “pretty portraits” for the candids of the people we love, if I had to. Luckily I don’t, and that’s what I want to provide to my clients- beautiful real portraits of them AND a beautiful story of their day. This is what I strive for through my own photography- documenting people and relationships as honestly as possible. And my hope is that the photos I take for people, particularly the candid photos, MEAN something to them, and help them during challenging times. If nothing else, COVID has brought forth to the forefront of my brain, even more than it was, how much of a GIFT it is to have ALL our loved ones gathered together to celebrate something good. Because I find that often the only other time that happens is at funerals.

“Alyssa and her team did SUCH a great job photographing our wedding. We are thrilled, our mothers are thrilled, my Instagram feed has never looked better!! Alyssa did such a great job of listening to what we wanted our day to be like, first and foremost. We hired her for her awesome “documentary” kind of style, and came out with the most gorgeous, natural pictures that we didn’t have to spend half our day schlepping around to get. She really captured the natural beauty of our venue and the happy, fun vibe of the day, plus a little extra magic. I can’t thank her enough!

“You saved the wedding for us and we truly appreciate you for it. Your cool presence helped us calm down and enjoy everything”

Because weddings are not about pretty things.

I want you to remember how your wedding felt. Weddings are about love and connection with not just your spouse, but your family and friends.

Weddings fly by in a whirlwind of activity. I want to build in time into your wedding day for you to slow down and take it all in, to be fully present and FEEL. When is the next time you will gather all of your favorite people in one place to celebrate something amazing? Each person at your wedding is likely important to you. Your wedding is not a photo shoot, it is a celebration of love and connection to your favorite people and I am simply there to document that honestly and meaningfully.

I love helping maybe to the point of pathology. I’m a (hopefully) recovering people-pleaser.
