Keeping with the Vday love from yesterday...I’m still in love with my copper foil business cards! I wanted to show them off a bit today 😍 🚨@theworkshopphx attendees! 🚨 If you stopped by my corner and got your portrait taken by me, check your email! I just sent the gallery information out 💌 I see a few of you have been using it and I’m soooooo happy you are! Let me know if you haven’t gotten the email 📭
There's still time to treat yourself or someone you love to a facial!

Mixing up today and sharing an engagement session sneak peek. This past weekend I had the pleasure of being in the high country for an engagement session with Jake and Niky. We were able to get a few snow shots and then scramble over to the Mogollon Rim to finish off at sunset. You can’t beat the views and that gorgeous golden hour light. Can’t wait for their wedding.

I’m asked often why I enjoy shooting weddings. There are lots reasons but if I had to give only one, it’s right here in this shot. @allib1281 dancing with her father at this moment. I get teary eyed with every father/daughter dance as I envision the day I’m dancing with my own daughter. Giving my clients these moments from their wedding is what it’s all about.

Hello, beauties! So I have a VERY good reason for going MIA on social media. I'd like you all to meet Baby D, making HER appearance in May. 😍
Needless to say, she's coming as a happy surprise but along with the joy has come some pretty horrific morning (ahem... ALL DAY) sickness and other challenges.
But I am feeling infinitely better and back in the swing of things. I'll be working right up until she's due so please don't hesitate to reach out to book your favorite service.
Thank you all for the love and support. It means the world to us. ♥️
Incredibly honored to have this award from @weddingwire again this year. It is awarded based on client feedback. My heart is full knowing that I served my clients in a manner in which they would honor me with this. Going into the new year my goals are higher and I will continue to strive to exceed client expectations. Thank you all for your generous comments.
@harleyannartistry was the winner of my giveaway a looooong time ago! A couple of weeks ago I photographed her in action coloring a model’s hair pink and purple! 💗💜 I’ll be showing more on my story! @simplemeansevents and @wildoneevents were the masterminds behind this beautiful display for the shoot at @theranchette! On another note, I went to my first @orangetheory class @otftempe and I already can’t walk like a normal person 😅 Loved it!
All set for my meeting with potential wedding clients.

This was the first photography workshop I ever attended thanks to @ryannlindseyphotography and @theamburgeys_photography of @reworkd.az 💗 It was also the first time I put myself in a learning environment for wedding photography since college 😳😅 I mean I am ALWAYS learning from others in some way, shape or form but to actually sit and listen to others and their experiences was eye opening! I’m dying to attend @heckyeahphotocamp sometime!! What was your favorite photography workshop you ever attended? Tell meeee! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

Never hurts to show off the groom and groomsmen. Especially when the best man is the sister of the groom. Kristen showing she can hold her own with the guys.

This is me in my natural state..! Okay okay, I’m not always at Saguaro lake on the boat with Kyle but I am always laughing!
I’m Alyssa! Wedding + Portrait photographer based in Arizona and if you’ve never met me before I’m sure one of the first things you’d notice is how much I laugh. It’s my most favorite characteristic about me (I’m also the funniest person I know sooo...) It’s not even a nervous laughter, it’s as normal as breathing is for me 😂 I think being able to laugh at life and just roll with it is something EVERYONE can benefit from. Laughing also help my clients relax and naturally smile! If you’re having a bad day you need to laugh, so google “funny bad jokes” and I promise you will feel so much better! Now I want to know, what’s your favorite thing about you?

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Hensley. What a day yesterday photographing these two start a new life together as husband and wife. @mrsjennhen looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress while @shensley_86 was holding his own. More to come!

Today is the day! @jennberri and @shensley_86 will be taking advantage of that "married filing jointly"after tonight as they will be one of Phoenix's newest married couples. Looking forward to capturing their day at @val_vista_lakes_events.
Friday’s are pawesome!! 🐶 As a dog lover I always get excited when my couples ask if they can bring their furry kids. 😄That question is always answered with a big Yes!! Thank you @jennberri@shensley_86 for bringing Scout along.

I’ve been asked, “Why photography?” My first answer is “Why not?” (Sarcastic I know, have you met me?😏) but really my answer is because I have the power to capture when everything in the universe comes together for one moment, one instant, one split second...and it can look like this.

I woke up in the middle of the night to thunder, rain and lightning! I loved it but wtf Arizona? Kyle has also been camping for the last 3 days at Roosevelt Lake, bet he wasn’t expecting that! 🌧😂
I wanna wish my dad @billyfromphilly59 a happy 56th birthday today! Hope your spending it on the beach with mom just loving the sunshine. I love you so much and im so thankful you have always inspired me to be myself and get the best out of every situation. Always been a daddy's girl and always will be! Great times last night with my family. #photobooth#tempewedding#parents#love#happybirthday#love
