portraits

Fine art portrait sessions are about carefully crafting and capturing the story of your relationship in meaningful way.  

Prior to the session, we will work together to decide on the perfect location for your shoot based upon our collaborative vision. Throughout this process, I will educate you on everything from selecting the perfect wardrobe to posing. 

couples, families, small business content & events

My goal during the portrait session is to capture the essence of my clients' personalities, and also to evoke a sense of gentle sweetness of the love they share. After countless portrait sessions, I've found a way to lead my subjects into natural, candid expressions that will feel authentic.  

In addition to weddings & portrait sessions, I also work with clients to document private events, create social media content for small businesses and on collaborative editorial projects.

 I was BLOWN AWAY by not only the quality of the images, but the feelings and the "story" she captured. Alyssa has insane photography talent and a true gift of capturing emotions. She is seriously the best!!

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

From day one, it was like working with a close friend, and Alyssa is also very professional, on top of her game, and a great communicator. I can't even find words good enough to express how perfect our experience has been. We will definitely continue to use Hope & Stay in the years to come for those landmark moments.
