weddings

The creative process involves working closely with each of our clients in order to get to know their vision and story. Each wedding is unique and offers an opportunity for a love story to be told in completely different ways. 

We focus on documenting authentic moments paired with a heavy emphasis on the pretty little details of your wedding day. Our signature style is to produce editorial-style images, with attention to achievement of classic skin tones with a film aesthetic.  





THE Hope & Stay EXPERIENCE 

Serving our clients and providing a tailored experience that goes well beyond simply documenting and delivering images is something we are truly passionate about. 

From start to finish, Alyssa provides a boutique and personalized service for our couples.  We accept a limited number of bookings per year so we are able to give each wedding the utmost care.

next step:

We'll be spending a serious amount of time together on one of the most important days of your life. Following your inquiry, we will set up an appointment for a phone conference to discuss all of the fine details and to see if we would be a good fit!

We get to know each other 
over a cup of coffee & a Skype
session.

Once we’ve had the opportunity to chat and decide we are a fabulous fit, we will make it official with a signed contract and retainer. 

We accept a limited number of clients per year.  Popular dates can book 12-18 months in advance, so please inquire as soon as possible.

You become a Hope & Stay Couple.

I gift each of my wedding clients with an engagement portrait session. I encourage each of my clients to take advantage of this gift as this is a time for us to get to know one another and it gives us a chance to get you comfortable in front of my lens before your big day.

Love, laughter and time to be you at your engagement session.

We'll work closely together to draft a perfect timeline for your day, get you connected with other wedding vendors we adore & trust,  and assist with crafting your family portrait list, so there'll be nothing left for you to do but relax and celebrate the best day of your lives!


We're here to help make recommendations, coordinate timelines and more.

While we’re working to capture your beautiful wedding day images, I make every effort to create an accurate narrative of the story of your wedding day.

All images are thoughtfully composed to capture a mix of genuine moments and emotions paired with an emphasis on the pretty little details of your day.

It's time to say "I do!"

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"I highly recommend Hope & Stay! There is a special bond that you must have with your photographer. Some people have it and some people don’t. Alyssa definitely has it! She will make sure you are comfortable before, during and after the wedding. The Hope & Stay team checks and double checks that your wedding party looks great in every photo. The attention to detail is incredible."

- Elizabeth & Justin
