The Photographer 

A BIT ABOUT YOUR GIRL

First off, I’m more than your photographer—I’m your biggest hype girl and your newest friend. SOOO, here are the thing you need to know about me! Photography has always been apart of me from a very young age. You can ask my dad but I think I have had a camera in my hand since I was 3.
I am a born and raised beach kid from Carlsbad CA but now live in Long Beach with my boyfriend Joey and our brand new puppy Rylee (if you go to my insta stories I guarantee there will be a video of her). My new personality is Dog mom and I take that very seriously lol! 
I absolutely LOVE to travel and am currently planning a Europe trip for 2024/2025! A big goal of mine is to hit up every Nation Park and currently I am at 17! This year we went to Yosemite and its was INCREDIBLE!
I will leave you with just a few fun facts! 
1- I LOVE country music. Always have and always will! 
2- I love all things homegrown, holistic and natural. Some favorite brands are Attitude, Dime and Plant Therapy
3- BEST show out there is Friends! 
4- I am a Disney local! I have had a pass for the past few years and I absolutely love it!

"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!!!"

Her remarkable attention to detail in capturing the most stunning photographs truly underscores her exceptional talent. Alissa consistently went the extra mile to ensure every shot was nothing short of perfection. Beyond delivering outstanding imagery, she also orchestrated flawless event coordination, ensuring every moment flowed seamlessly without a hitch. It's evident that Alissa is genuinely dedicated to making her clients' dreams come true, whether it's their special day, event, or a photoshoot.

"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!!

Happy words 

from happy clients 

"My wife and I just hired Alissa for both our engagement photos earlier in the year and then our wedding this past weekend and we genuinely could not be more thrilled with both! She was incredible at making my wife feel comfortable and helping to execute her vision to a tee! My wife wanted me to reiterate just how relaxed and natural Alissa made her feel during both days of shooting!

During the wedding Alissa was prompt and organized, greatly relieving our anxiety about the day and we can't thank her enough. She was on top of the shot list after the ceremony and made sure every family and friend photo we wanted taken was accounted for and kept the right people on standby.

Will ABSOLUTELY be referring all friends and family to Alissa in the future, and our guests were very complimentary as well. Already received some photos the day after our wedding while we wait for the full album and we're so happy with how they've turned out so far!"
