From the moment you inquire until your images are delivered - and beyond - I'm your girl. From timeline help to recommendations on vendors, just let me know what you need, and I got you. No BS. Because weddings are all about relationships, and the relationship between myself and my clients is really important to me. So please, don't hesitate to reach out, day or night. I don't have much of a social life and I have children that don't sleep, so...text me :)
No one likes photos that feel stuffy and forced. And, while I guide you and prompt you into photos, there is no 'posed' photography going on here. What you see in my portfolio is a really accurate representation of my couples and their loved ones on their wedding day. Big smiles, laughter, and maybe some steamy kisses (since, ya know, you're in love and everything) I'm pretty go-with-the-flow, and I've done this wedding thing a time or two (about 100 times, actually), so I am more than happy to help you have your best day ever.
...a wedding planning guide geared toward helping you get your best images ever. From planning your engagement session to getting your last manicure before you walk down the aisle, you get access to it all.
Help with your timeline. I'll work with you and your wedding planner to max out your timeline, ensuring you get photos at key times of day aka WHEN THE SUNLIGHT IS BEST! If I know anything, it's light and how to use it. Trust me!
I've been known to make a total ass out of myself to get my clients to relax and laugh. We all know wedding days fly by, and it's a huge part of my job to make sure you're enjoying yourself. Because, let's face it, if you aren't having fun, it's going to show in your photos.
...with an engagement session. Engagement sessions are complimentary with my full day collections, and they are my FAVORITE! Seriously, this is the time for us to get to know each other and have FUN! No timeline, no guests, just you, me and my camera (and maybe a drink afterwards)
Yes, this is my job and I support my family with my business, but what good am I if I'm just another vendor for hire? I take pride in being true friends with a lot of my clients. From babies to big moves and the heartbreaks of life, I'm here. For real. So please text me to vent when wedding planning gets to be too much, or to gush about the wedding dress you fell in love with. Our relationship doesn't just last a day.
Alyssa is a true gem! She captured everything exactly as we wanted and made it fun and easy! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further.
Alyssa was so wonderful and easy to work with! We were from out of town and Alyssa set up FaceTime calls to meet and get to know us. We even met for breakfast a couple of weeks before the wedding to talk more about the wedding weekend.
She was professional, made us feel comfortable, and I felt like we had known each other forever before it was all over. She didn’t skip a beat when it was raining after the ceremony and we followed her lead and got some great shots! Her pictures are beautiful and she has a creative mind.
Working with Alyssa was so wonderful and made our day run smoothly. Having a destination wedding we weren't able to meet Alyssa or do a engagement session but speaking to her on the phone she was organized and experienced working in the Keys, she was even helpful with recommending local vendors! She was able to answer all our questions and took away any doubts we had.
On the day of she was efficient and helped make the day run smoothly. She is great with working with you to get the shots you want and also had knowledge of our venue and was able to recommend shots and locations for the best photos. My husband is not a fan of taking pictures and he enjoyed how Alyssa worked making everyone feel comfortable but also moving the pictures along so everyone could enjoy the day!
While I think her pictures speak for themselves as they are all beautiful she is also a joy to work with and was a big part of making our day perfect!
I don’t even know where to begin writing a review on Alyssa! She has a gift with photography and I am glad that she shared it with everyone. We are lucky to have found her.
2 years ago I emailed Alyssa after finding her blog post on a wedding she shot at The Treasury on the Plaza (ended up being our venue too!). We live in NY and she was going to be in NY for a wedding. I asked if she he could do our engagement pictures in NY and then do our destination wedding in St Augustine. I quickly received an email back that said “let’s do it!” The whole process with Alyssa was so great, easy, and effortless. She checked up on us over our 2-year engagement and even came to our venue walk through when we were in town over the holidays.
On our wedding day, she was there all day with us and WOW did she get some amazing pictures. When I look back on the moments she captured, I tear up at the ceremony, smile at our pictures around St Augustine, and laugh at our reception photos. I can’t believe the pictures we have from out wedding, I will always be able to relive the day through them and that is very special.
We recommend Alyssa for any photos you need taken. She is such an amazing person to work. I wish we lived closer so we could hang out with her more often!
