Where to even begin? First of all, I’m so happy you’re here! I’m a wedding and engagement  photographer based in  Southern California  (but will travel Anywhere. Wink wink!). I believe in love, authentic moments and that capturing your memories on film is the best way to celebrate life! 


The Photographer 

So the story begins...

Photography has been part of me since I was a kid, which is when my camera pretty much became an extra appendage—I’ve always taken it with me everywhere. Toward the end of high school, I decided this was the dream job for me—and ever since then, I’ve worked hard to pursue this passion of mine and am so grateful to call it my full-time job. As someone who loves to laugh and have a great time, my hope is to bring that joy into every session. I’m more than your photographer—I’m your biggest hype girl and your newest friend.

"Wow, wow, wow, where do I even begin?! Alissa is the absolute BEST! I cannot get over my pictures. The lighting, the movement, the EVERYTHING. She was so fun to shoot with and we felt so beyond natural with her. I was worried that my fiance wouldn’t feel comfortable being in front of the camera, but Alissa got us both laughing, played music and it was SO natural and effortless. She captured pure joy and fun! She’s so personable and a fun, energetic spirit to be around. I would 10000% love to shoot with her again for our next big life moments! THE BEST!!!"

"Alissa was absolutely amazing to work with! We got to meet for lunch before the wedding to talk about details and also get to know each other so I would feel more comfortable on my wedding day. She would text me if I ever needed anything and was so helpful leading up to the big day! On my wedding day she was so professional and helpful and very patient which I was very grateful for! She knew exactly what she was doing and it made me feel like I could just enjoy the day and not worry about getting all the shots right, because she had it under control! She was soo amazing and even sent me a sneak peak of the gallery next day! I am so beyond grateful that Alissa was the one to capture my special day!

"My husband and I booked Alissa to shoot our maternity photos and it was truly the best decision we could have made! She clearly communicated with us throughout the whole process and was flexible when our original date had to be cancelled due to weather. From the moment she started shooting she made us feel so comfortable — even playing music to help us relax. Our photos turned out better than we could imagine and her turnaround time was pretty unmatched. Thank you, Alissa — we are grateful and hope we can hire you again in the future!"

"Alissa is an amazing Photographer. My fiancé and I had never had professional photos taken before and were very anxious. Alissa helped ease the anxiety after out first conversation. After only 2 weeks we received the photos back and couldn’t be more excited about them. She really helps make you feel comfortable during the photo shoot and the photos she delivered are MORE THEN WE COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED! We are beyond happy with our photos and will definitely be using her again!!
