She is only three, but still so cute and tiny! I found her outside alone and crying when she was a kitten and then and there decided she was mine. 

She is now a spoiled princess who loves cuddles and jumping on people for fun!

Also yes, she always looks grumpy. 😂

"I'm only sad our time together is done!"

Kind words from past AJP Brides

"Alyssa and her team were my favorite vendor I had at my wedding! She was so easy to work with, made my camera shy husband feel very comfortable, was totally on board with my desire to include my cats in my day. It was cold and POURING rain on my wedding day and she still managed to make my wedding pictures look like it was beautiful and sunny!"

"We had a blast with Alyssa! Would recommend to anyone (even if they didn’t ask!)"

Kind words from past AJP Brides

"Alyssa is great! We had so much fun during our engagement session and she did such a great job directing us on what to do and editing the pictures! We absolutely love our photos! She even helped us choose our location since we we coming from out of state and she chose such beautiful locations!"

"She helped us brainstorm ideas on where to do our photos and gave us a list of ideas" 

Kind words from past AJP Brides

"We were able to just show up that day and she coached us on poses; she delivered our photos on-time (they were beautiful and we got dozens of them); and she even sent a sweet bridal care package to me after all was said and done! If you want a photographer who really cares about your special day and is just a genuinely great person to work with, choose Alyssa. :)"
