let me tell you mine..
Before you share your story..
My name is Alyssa. I’m 28 years old, a self-taught photographer, avid traveler, wayfarer and trying to become a green thumb.
If there was one person who I had to thank for sharing a love of photography with me, it was my grandfather. He always had a camera with him, simply because he loved the memories he captured. That forever impacted me and I also developed that same passion to capture the moments around me, no matter how small.
"Modern. Bold. True to Life."
That's how I like to describe my photography style
I strive to create a bold and warm image, that still stays true to life. I don't make your grass look brown or your skin look green. My goal is to create images that last a lifetime, not just what's popular now. I mean... once upon a time "selective color" was all the rage too, right?
MY PHOTO PHILOSOPHY
When considering photographers for any occasion, the photos are obviously important! However, I believe that great photos come from great experiences. You can have the best training, best lenses, and be a Photoshop wizard- but if the "vibe" isn't right, it will show in the photos. I treat all of my clients like friends, using my expertise (and sense of humor) to create a memorable moment to go with the photos. I'm a people person at heart, but also use this skillset on wedding days to my
advantage. I don't just take in the scenery, but make sure to stay aware of the atmosphere and feelings in a room. Does the timeline say couples photos for 60 minutes, but we crushed it in 40 minutes and you're ready to party? Awesome- let's go enjoy your cocktail hour!
When we meet, I can promise you two things - laughs 'till your stomach hurts as well as beautiful photo memories that we’ll work to create together.
