Arizona Wedding PhotographerDocumentary, Moment-based story-telling
Nice to meet you, I´m Alyssa.
My style is candid, documentary and real.
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!“

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.
