Authentic and Story-Driven Photography for Weddings and Elopements 

You want natural and authentic wedding photos,  

you know, the photos that aren’t too overly posed (but oh so pretty!)

You want to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera. You might be lighthearted and fun, but you for sure know you don't want cheesy photos (There is 100% a fine line). 

Here's the good news, I can help you get the look you're after!

Hey I'm Alyssa!

I'm an NC Based Photographer available Worldwide

I photograph both large weddings and intimate elopements. My goal is to tell your wedding story no matter how you chose to celebrate!

I want to tell that story in a natural and authentic way. (And if we have a lot of fun in the meantime, that's a bonus 😊).

I'm always on the lookout for real laughs, meaningful glances, and real tears (don't worry only the good kind!)

If you want to know more about what it's like to work with me, keep scrolling!

Alyssa did an AMAZING job with photos for our special day.

I have always been so uncomfortable taking photos (as has my husband)

Alyssa truly made us feel 100% comfortable and got genuine laughter out of us! And it shows in the photos.

What makes me different

1) I'm your personal cheerleader

2) I'm the marie kondo of weddings (aka ORGANIZED!)

3) I'm here for those real moments

I’ll guide you through your session and help make you feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera. No need to be a pro model! I’ll make sure you know what to do the whole time.

I’ve found that when couples are relaxed and comfortable, the photos turn out like nothing else! You can’t fake emotion y'all.

All of these gorgeous photos don't just happen on their own. Almost every gorgeous photo no matter how fun and spontaneous still requires a bit of planning! (Couples don't just happen to end up in the most perfect field for sunset photos 😉) 

I make sure to help you stay organized and on time with your photos so we can capture all those moments you want!

I'm not here to just push for pretty portraits and not worry about the rest of the day. No, I'm here to capture the hugs, the laughter, the crazy dancing, and the quiet beautiful moments. 

Your wedding is more than just pretty moments, it's an important and meaningful day full of real emotional moments.

"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. :)"
