Here is an interview with Alyssa…
What makes your photography unique?
I love capturing life the way it happens, especially on such an emotional day like a wedding. I know that my wedding day flew by and I can hardly remember waking up that morning, let alone all of the beautiful details, which is exactly why I cherish the images so much. I want to give that same gift to brides now. You’ll often find me behind the scenes of a wedding, capturing moments like the flower girl practicing, family decorating, the emotion of a bride before going to see her groom for the first time, because simply put, that’s the way it happened, and that’s the way the day should be cherished.
What is included in your packages? What is your price range?
I have three wedding packages that fit varying budgets, they are totally customizable for each wedding day. Engagement sessions are included in all three, simply because I love spending time with my clients and getting to know each bride and groom before their big day. Boudoir can be nicely paired with any package as the perfect groom’s gift as well!
How would you describe your style?
Emotionally photojournalistic. I’m inspired by genuine emotion and beautiful, natural light. As a wedding photographer, I get to capture moments straight out of love stories – and I adore the fact that each one is so unique. As a bride and groom, your job is to be front and center and enjoy every part of your day, my job is to put you right back into those fabulous moments every time you look at your wedding images.
What should brides and grooms look for in their photographer?
You should not only love the images, but love the photographer! Always call and set up a consult during the process of planning. Every photographer has a different style, and they’ll be working with you on one of the most important days of your life – you should definitely choose a personality that clicks with both of you. Our job, as photographers, is to make sure you’re confident and excited with the end result. Seeing you happy makes me happy!
Any tips or advice for wedding planning?
Never settle for anything less than your dream wedding photography! Most photographers actually have payment plans that will work with your budget, and it’s definitely an investment you’ll be glad you made for years to come.
