Welcome! I'm truly honored to be invited into this joyful chapter of your life and am so looking forward to getting to know you!
My name is Alyssa and I am a fine art wedding & portrait photographer based in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. I serve clients throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas of Bucks County, the Poconos, Lancaster, Philadelphia, New Jersey & beyond. Since 2016, I've been crafting natural, timeless, and romantic imagery with a fine art approach. I strive for a level of classic romance in my work - so you end up with images as unique as your love story, with a customized experience to match. I am privileged to have had our clients' beautiful & heartfelt events featured in a number of publications, nationwide.
I wear many hats but my most important roles are as a wife to my amazing husband, Ben, and mama to our two beautiful daughters. I met my husband at Penn State University (We are!) and followed my love to the Lehigh Valley where we currently reside. We enjoy living a slow-paced life in the countryside with our girls, Golden Retrievers, cat, and chickens!
IT's NICE TO MEET YOU

I just adore a little southern charm--I like my tea sweet and my love lasting. Warm, quiet nights on the porch while a thunderstorm rolls in over the mountain makes my heart flutter. I am happiest at home with a cup of coffee, flipping through a Southern Living magazine with a Golden Retriever at my feet.

ARE WE THE PERFECT FIT?
I am hopelessly in love with the beach. There's something so soothing about the sound of the surf, the gentle breeze coming off the water, and the salt that coats your skin after a day in the sun. I was raised in New Jersey and this Jersey girl spent her summers "down the shore."

There's something about fresh flowers that make a space so romantic & inviting. I always love having fresh cut stems throughout our home. Blue hydrangeas are my absolute favorite and remind me of seaside days in historic beach towns.
Weddings with lush florals make me swoon!

Photographs are an important part of our legacy, a tool to document our journey and our existence. I firmly believe that photographs are treasured heirlooms, meant to be passed from generation to generation.
I've always been fascinated by history and have a love for all things from the past. I get lost looking at old photographs. I find myself wondering who the subjects were--what their laugh sounded like, what they did, who they loved.
My passion for photography was ignited by my combined love history and my desire to ensure our family's moments were never lost or forgotten.
I am a visual storyteller, a dreamer, and a chaser of light. I simply cannot wait to tell your story and capture your moments worth remembering.
