Kind Words

We met Alyssa through a styled photo shoot gathering and upon meeting her, she brought so much brightness (love, excitement, joy) to the room.  She is extremely helpful, encourages various poses, and unique ideas for what she's trying to capture. It was extremely easy for my soon to be husband and I to feel at ease during the session. We had a blast, learned how much we have in common, and chatted out trips to the outdoors.  We really loved the moments and photos that Alyssa was able to capture, and the online gallery was very easy to use.  We definitely recommend Alyssa, she is a kind and loving spirit who will work hard to capture any moment trying to be captured.  You should book with her because she puts her heart and soul into her work, she's the kind of photographer who takes photos of strangers at a beach who don't have anyone to capture their special moment.

Not only is Alyssa a good friend of mine, but she is also a rockstar photographer. She doesn’t just take photos of you, she is part of your experience offering encouragement, laughs, while moving the photo session along beautifully with thought out poses. I can tell she puts her all into her sessions and customizes them to you and what you’re looking for. She did an anniversary session with my boyfriend and I, and I couldn’t stop looking at them - they were perfect. Highly recommend booking with her!

Alyssa is an amazing photographer! She made my husband and I feel so comfortable and beautiful during our session. We were immediately put at ease with her sweet and professional personality. She helped us tremendously with posing to ensure we got a wide variety of shots in our album and our time with her just flew by! We loved seeing our sneak peaks so quickly after the session! The photos came out so dreamy and gorgeous. You can tell that she puts a lot of thought and effort into her craft. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to photographer their big day or life's special moments.

I am blown away by the expertise and the passion behind everything Alyssa does. She makes you feel extremely comfortable, is open, honest, and has an amazing way of capturing every single feeling in photos! I have done two shoots with Alyssa and I won't work with anyone else!


She is a hidden gem and if you have the chance to book her she will commit herself to your shoot 100%.

Alyssa is so talented!! I wasn't sure whether I was going to want maternity photos taken, but it was a blast! Alyssa has wonderful energy, and is so encouraging.  She made sure I felt comfortable the entire time, and made me feel beautiful from start to finish.  Being pregnant isn't easy, but she paid attention to how I was feeling, and adapted to my needs.  Now that I have the finished product, I am so happy to have them! They will be a treasure for years to come!

I met Alyssa at a friends engagement party and we quickly hit it off! I was headed to the Bay Area for work and decided to reach out to her for some much needed updating of my headshots. Alyssa did not disappoint, from the moment she started shooting she makes you feel so comfortable even though there are tons of people walking by wondering what you're doing. That was all tuned out. She completely has an eye for photography, not only are her photos gorgeous, but she knows how to pose people well which is half the battle. Alyssa is also super responsive and so professional. Would recommend her to anyone in the Bay Area (or friends flying into the Bay Area) in a heartbeat!

My boyfriend was totally dreading our anniversary session and was only doing it for me as a favor.  However, after our time with Alyssa, he walked away from our session saying that he really enjoyed the experience and that he had had a lot of fun!  She made both of us feel comfortable and had us laughing from start to finish.  Alyssa not only helped pose us and create candid moments on camera, but she reminded us of how much we love each other!  As soon as we received our gallery, I printed my favorites and hung them up in our house.  I love walking by them every day as a memory that lasts forever.

Alyssa is awesome! We found her based on great recommendations from friends. Our family is not typically very photogenic, but she was able to get all four of our young daughters to be comfortable and our littlest one even smiled for her (a huge success since she barely cracks a smile for close friends and relatives!) 

Overall really great experience.  Alyssa turned it into a game for our girls. It was laid back and a ton of fun. She caught amazing moments and was incredibly professional the whole time! 

My wife and I said we will only use Alyssa from now on! So wonderful!

We are beyond happy with Alyssa’s work ! She was so patient & made the shoot incredible. There were 9 people in our family and Alyssa did so great capturing everyone! The entire shoot was all laughs and giggles. Loved that we received so many amazing pictures back and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone who is affordable & great at what she does. Can’t wait to shoot with her again!

Alyssa made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and was always so sweet!  Our session was more than just taking pictures, it was an experience I will always look back on with excitement!  The pictures came out amazing and I got them all back super fast. I would definitely recommend setting up a shoot with her!
