I'll create gorgeous photos that will take your breath away without sacrificing one minute of the experience. You can enjoy your wedding and have a beautiful gallery as well.
Not many people are invited into the sacred spaces that I have access to. Proposals, private vows, first few days at home with baby. I don't hold this privilege lightly, this is an important time in your life.
I don't stop caring about you as soon as the final gallery has been delivered because relationship building is at the core of what I'm about. I am here to celebrate life's milestones with you long after you've said, "I do."

All of the photographers I hire to shoot weddings are all experienced photographers. They are super talented and crazy fun to work with.
I am very good at photography and leave the moving pictures to the professionals. You want some recommendations? Ask me who my favorites are.
Absolutely. When you inquire, I'll send over a few galleries that fit your season/venue/vibe so you can get an idea of what to expect.
From an 8 hour wedding day, you will get about 500-800 edited images delivered within 6 weeks. Every wedding is different, so this isn't a guarantee, just an average.
First, email me with all your wedding date information, and we can talk pricing and details. Then, to book your date and ensure that I will be photographing your wedding, a signed contract and deposit are required. I book on a first come, first serve basis, upon receipt of a signed contract along with the retainer. Worried about budget? Let's talk about payment plans.
UHH YAAAAS! Absolutely! I love traveling. Send me an email, and I'll send you more info about that! I’ve been to California, Michigan, Philly, Texas, and all over the Midwest for weddings and shoots.
I think it’s totally up to you. During the time spent together for your engagement session, we get to know each other better. By wedding day, we’ll be old friends and you’ll basically be a professional model LOL but more importantly, you’ll trust me to get incredible photos of your day.
All images are delivered you on a high-res online galleries within 6 weeks. You have access to print through the gallery or you can download your images and print wherever you choose.
You better believe I celebrate all people. Every race or ethnicity. Every religion (or non-religion). Every gender. Every sexual identity/orientation. All are welcome here. Discrimination of any kind is unacceptable.
Would you believe me if I said a majority of my couples worry about this? Don't worry, I don't expect you to be a professional model…until I'm done with you LOL! Being in front of a camera is something so vulnerable, and I promise to never make you feel like someone you’re not. You can expect prompted and guided posing to help you connect and look your best!
I do not own a studio (yet!) but there are studios available all over the city if that's something you're interested in. HMU and we can book one!
From a 45 minute session, you will get about 60-100 edited images delivered within 6 weeks. Every session is different, so this isn't a guarantee, just an average.
Colors that always look good: neutrals and jewel tones. Most importantly, choose an outfit that you love and love yourself in. I promise you don't want to be pulling or tugging at your clothes. Here's a pinterest inspo board to help get your wheels turning. https://pin.it/7jJxmZ4
"we really look like 'us'"
I cannot express how thankful I am for Alyssa. Not just as our wedding photographer but, as a human. The pictures are better than I could have ever imagined but, the experience of having her around on such an important/fast moving day really made our day that much better. Her calming presence and quick wit was exactly what I needed and honestly kept me feeling so relaxed that I was able to genuinely enjoy myself. She was so helpful from the moment we booked her and provided guidance when I asked about other vendors while planning. It rained on our wedding day and she, again, stayed calm, worked around it/watched for small breaks in the rain and we still got all the pictures we wanted. We’ve gotten so many complements on our photos and every time I look through them, I find a new favorite. She perfectly captured our relationship and we really look like “us” rather than just some staged version of ourselves. She got us ALL of our photos so quickly that I think I might have gotten whiplash (seriously so fast it was insane). She is genuine, kind, funny and SO talented. She will support you and be your biggest cheerleader while taking bomb photos and making sure you have a beer when you want one.
"Book. Alyssa. Now! "
Alyssa was seriously an amazing addition to our wedding day. She made us feel SO comfortable and was just a blast to be around. From the start, she brings a relaxed presence to those around her. We had an engagement shoot a few months into our engagement and we were a little nervous, we aren’t models by any means. Alyssa immediately put us at ease and helped us feel more comfortable in front of the camera and our pics turned out SO cute. She has a magical way of capturing the love between couples. I feel like she captured our personalities so well and it really looked like ‘us’, not stiff or cheesy at all. On our wedding day, she was perfection. She is always professional and helpful and so fun to have around. She captured our day so well and I’m so so thankful to have those precious moments documented forever. She is soooo quick with getting photos back to you and her editing skills are on point! I’ve already printed photos from our day and displayed them in our home. I haven’t even posted them on social yet because there’s SO many I love and I don’t want to be ridiculous and bombard peeps with 3000 images lol. Seriously, book Alyssa, she is a dream. I already miss hanging with her. Book. Alyssa. Now!
"what felt natural for us"
Amazing. Easy. Relaxed. Just enough direction but let us do what felt natural for us.
"better than I could have asked for"
If you are looking for a fun, professional, laid back chick who will make you and your husband feel like models, Alyssa is the photographer you want! Alyssa was with my husband and I from the beginning of the whole wedding journey. Ben hired Alyssa for our proposal photos the night we were engaged. She even sent us 20+ photos that same night! We got the most beautiful photos I could have ever asked for that night and still get compliments on them today. We couldn't have imagined using anyone else for our wedding after that night. She took our engagement photos and wedding photos. All are so incredibly beautiful! She is always quick to get your edited photos back to you, which is amazing for eager brides. So cheesy, but at the end of it all she wasn't just our photographer, she became a friend. Alyssa, thank you so much for everything. You captured our special moments so much better than I could have ever asked for. We feel so lucky to have had you through this whole process.
"turns our chaos into pure magic"
A dream! Literally could not ask for better experiences! With all my littles she takes it in stride and turns our chaos into pure magic! Love getting to work with Alyssa always!
"she kept everything about us"
Working with Alyssa was amazing! I felt like our wedding was so much more laid back because she kept everything fun and about us having a good time with our friends. Now we've done mini sessions every fall for the last three years and look forward to it every year! The pictures always turn out amazing and take no time to get done!
"best decisions we made"
It's hard to put into words how happy I am with our choice to have Alyssa as our photographer. Really, Alyssa's services extend far beyond that of your typical photographer - she is a photographer (an amazing one, at that), a cheerleader, a hype girl...everything. Alyssa took amazing pictures (which she got back to us within 3 weeks, not to mention a sneak peek the night of the wedding), helped me seamlessly navigate the unavoidable bit of family tension that arose, bustled my dress so my mom could enjoy cocktail hour, pinned my dress when a wild dancer stepped on it and ripped my bustle on the dance floor, helped us feel confident and beautiful and sexy during our pictures, and helped coordinate communication between all involved throughout our day. Alyssa truly felt like a part of the wedding, and our entire wedding party felt so comfortable and confident around her. Choosing Alyssa to be our photographer was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
"captured the joy"
How does she take us at our messiest and make it look like art? It's seriously magic. We were a disaster this morning. We weren't ready, everyone was tired and yet she still captured the joy that we feel about Max joining our family. I will treasure these and the season they captured forever.
"working with her was a dream"
Alyssa was one of the first vendors we hired for our wedding, and I’m honestly still thanking my lucky stars that we got to have her! We were referred to her by two of our best friends who were married last year. I loved her editing style, but most importantly, I loved the way she brought their personalities through in their photos. I contacted her pretty much immediately! Every aspect of working with her was a dream. My now husband and I are awkward in front of a camera, let’s be honest, and Alyssa made us feel so at-ease and comfortable during our photos, which turned out gorgeous. I can’t say enough about how much we love them!! As the cherry on top, she had our heirloom album finished so quickly, I was stunned. I’m telling you this because when you hire Alyssa, you aren’t only getting the best photographer, you’re getting a wedding professional who delivers what she promises, no matter what. Book her while you still can!
"obsessed with every photo"
Alyssa is the bomb.com!!! I hired her for my wedding photographer and she seriously did not disappoint. She has the best attitude and is so funny and down to earth (seriously look at her instagram, she is hilarious). She captured every single detail on my wedding day and I am obsessed with every single photo. I highly recommend her and would tell any bride looking for a wedding photographer in the KC area to look no further.
"so fun and effortless"
The photos she took radiate warmth and genuine joy. She made it so fun and effortless. She is easy-going, provides direction, and makes you laugh and feel comfortable.
"I cannot recommend her enough"
Alyssa is one of the coolest, most down to earth people I know. She photographed my wedding in 2014 (one of her first weddings). She did such a great job. Not only was she professional and timely with everything - but she was also a blast to be around and eased my nerves with quick witted jokes and easy going nature. Since then, she has done my family photos almost every year. She's the best and I cannot recommend her enough.
"the best pictures possible"
Working with Alyssa was simple and I mean that in the best way possible. One of the only vendors I didn't have to worry about. Communication was phenomenal. Professional. Fun. Stress free. We were able to spend so much of our day together and not posing for pictures for hours and got the best pictures possible. Chefs kiss!
"an absolute dream to work with"
Holy cow. I don't even know where to begin with Alyssa! Alyssa was one of the first wedding vendors we met with, and the first one we booked - & I'm so glad we did! From our initial phone call with her, to our engagement session, to our wedding day, to delivering our wedding photos & beyond, Alyssa has been an absolute dream to work with. Everything she does goes above and beyond what I could have ever expected in my wedding photographer. Alyssa is professional, fun, so easy to be around and work with, timely & quick on responses, and her work as a photographer is amazing. Her personality is contagious - I can't tell you how many of our bridal party members and guests raved about Alyssa. She is so fun to be around and really put everyone at ease that day, which made taking photos a breeze & not to mention, beautiful. In addition to how cool Alyssa is, her photos are 100x!!! We wanted our wedding photos to be timeless, real, in-the-moment, and her shooting and editing style is just that. She captured everything I wanted (and trust me, I had a huge list!), and delivered WAY beyond that - i.e. we had sneak peeks in our inbox by the time we got to our hotel room after our after-party, and our full gallery within 5 weeks! She made our day, and everything leading up to it so easy, stress-free, we cannot thank Alyssa enough! One of the best decisions of our wedding - not to mention gorgeous photos that we will cherish for a lifetime! RUN to book Alyssa now, I promise it will be the best decision & you will not regret it!
"remember this season"
My experience has been INCREDIBLE! She has a unique way of making us feel so comfortable when we are a family of people who aren't comfortable taking photos. She has captured so many of the most important moments and transitions of my life. I'm so grateful to know that when the crazy days of toddlerhood are past, we will have the photos she took to remember this season and treasure. I can't imagine choosing anyone else. I can still remember my first phone call with her about possibly doing our wedding. I knew I would be getting a great photographer but I didn't realize l'd be getting a great friend too!
genuine emotions and moments
WOW I cannot imagine having anyone else as our photographer! Alyssa was truly perfect. She is an incredible person and incredible photographer. We were nervous that as a couple who doesn't take many photos our wedding photos might looked staged or awkward, and not the case at all. She captured the genuine emotions and moments of our day perfectly. All of our friends and family were wildly impressed with her and have gushed about how amazing she was. It's great to get immediate "sneak peeks" photos after the wedding (with so many photos from big moments so you have some right away). She was also so flexible when our wedding plans went slightly different due to rainy weather and was an incredibly positive presence all throughout. I could go on and on forever- we LOVED working with Alyssa.
