Natural and Authentic Photos documenting your entire day

Alyssa Joyce Photography
Serving NC + BEYOND

You want to radiate that genuine and confident vibe so that you can have the effortlessly authentic photos of your Pinterest dreams.

Don't worry I've got you

From getting ready to the big exit, you just want your wedding documented in a way that tells your love story and makes you look pretty darn good at the same time.

Let's go into detail

Wedding photography for all my girlies (inclusive) who want to feel like that girl on their wedding day. Who want to Have all the cute moments but still plenty of candids (and party pics).

And who really want a gallery that documents the day as it happened.

I’m Alyssa and I love documenting love.

I’ve been in this industry for going on 5 years and I’ve been able to work with the most amazing couples and tell their beautiful love stories. I’ve traveled all over and gone from cute rustic barns to huge crazy mansions, from the beaches to the mountains I’ve been all over so I can document my awesome couples wedding day. 

"She has such a comfortable, yet professional presence and did a great job making us feel relaxed. Our engagement photos and the photos from our wedding capture the spirit of both days so beautifully and (seemingly) effortlessly. Can't recommend working with her more, it was an absolute joy!”

“I can't say enough how amazing it was to work with Alyssa!

So what’s it like to work with me?

I like to keep things pretty simple. 

1. Inquiry and booking

2. Planning and engagement session

3. The big day

4. After the wedding

First off you just have to reach out! From there you’ll get an in-depth pricing guide that explains all the different packages in detail and any and all a la carte items.

We can either set up a call or just email and get your collection created for you. Once that’s done I’ll send over the contract and booking info. You’ll have a bit to read it over and if it all works, you just sign and book!

Then we’ll get to planning. We’ll plan the engagement session and I’ll send two questionnaires to help with planning the timeline for the big day. We can also go back and forth through text and email to make sure everything is as planned as possible. 

Then your big day will be here! I’ll already have a whole game plan so all you have to do is be present on your wedding and I’ll be busy documenting it!

After your wedding, you’ll get some sneak peeks and then 1 month after your big day you’ll get photos delivered to you! They’ll be sent through an online gallery delivery service and backed up to the cloud for safekeeping as well! You’ll be able to download and print any and all the photos!

Worried about posing or looking good in front of the camera?

Don’t be, I got ya!

The number one thing I hear from my couples is they aren’t good at posing and they’ll need help. Do not worry! I’ve got you! I’ll guide you through poses and prompts and take those cute little candid moments. I always work at whatever level my couples are comfortable with and try to guide things based on your personality and the vibe of your wedding. 

I’ve got everything from what to wear, where to shoot, and how to pose all ready for you! I’m 100% down to travel or to research a specific location that matches the vibe you want!

Investment

Everything you need to know right here

My goal is to give you the best wedding photography experience possible! I always recommend starting with the 8 hour collection if you know you want a full day of wedding coverage from getting ready to the exit. I recommend upgrading to 10 hours if you are having a long ceremony or a late exit.

I put a lot of time and effort into understanding what you need so that we aren't insanely pinched for time when the big day comes! But I do offer hourly coverage from my people who know they want either just the basics or are having a more intimate wedding. If you don't know which would best fit you, just lt me know when you inquire and I'll help you figure it out!

FAQ

I usually deliver between 800 - 1500+ photos. The range is due to the length of the wedding, amount of location changes (more driving = less shooting), the timeline, and more. But on a whole 8-hour traditional wedding day about 1000)

Next

How many photos do I get?

FAQ

Yes! I have a small network of other wedding professionals who both work with me and have their own businesses. In the event I couldn't shoot, one of them would cover for me.

They would also have a backup photographer second shooting with them. I would still edit and deliver the gallery. 

Next

Do you have backup plans for sickness or injury?

FAQ

I choose from a group of people I’ve worked with in the past!

Next

How do you get/pick a second photographer

FAQ

Yes with full day coverage! It can be swapped for a bridal
or day after session.

For hourly you can get one as an add on.

Next

Do I get an engagement session?

FAQ

Yes! 25% of the total cost is due as a retainer, and the rest can be scheduled almost however you like as long as it’s paid one month before the wedding. I do a default of 4 payments spread out between booking time and wedding time.

Next

Do you offer payment plans?

FAQ

Through an online gallery delivery service called Pic-time! You’ll be able to download high-resolution photos, use the printing studio (if you like), and know that your wedding is double backed up to the cloud.

Next

How are my images delivered?

FAQ

For weddings as long as the wedding is within 2 hours of my home base then no. Otherwise I will charge for gas and possible a hotel. This is something we can discuss either over email or on a phone consultation! If it is a destination wedding I simply charge the cost of travel and meals.

Next

Do you charge travel fees?

FAQ

No! I will do a walk through of your venue the day of (and before if it’s allowed/doable) but I almost always see the venue the day of the wedding. I will ask if there are any limitations in the planning questionnaire so I can plan accordingly. 

Next

Does it matter if you’ve shot at a venue before?

FAQ

No, sorry! Raw photos are pretty much useless unless you turn them into jpegs. So you would need that software first. And second I never give out raws.

Next

Can I have the raw photos?

FAQ

You can do that in your final gallery! I have a shop set up that uses reliable USA-based printers. They’ll ship everything directly to you! I can help with album design or you can do it yourself!
You can also just print at your favorite printing place. I do recommend being careful where you choose when it comes to larger prints! If a third-party place has bad results there's not much I can do.

From planning and coordinating all the photos, to the engagement session, to the wedding day, working with Alyssa and her team was seamless and we are so grateful to have found her. She brings along some truly amazing and creative gals too - they did wonders with our details and portraits! On top of her work, Alyssa is the nicest and easiest person to work with. She keeps up with communication so well and is extremely professional. She is definitely locked in for us any time we need any photography done and I would recommend her to anyone I meet! Thank you SO much again, Alyssa and team!

We had an amazing experience with Alyssa during our wedding! She was professional and helpful and our pictures were beautiful!

As a photographer myself I knew I had to find someone who would do our wedding right and I couldn’t be happier with her work.
