My name is Alyssa, but you can call me Ali.

I’m a South Louisiana-based wedding and portrait photographer dedicated to documenting your happiest moments. I specialize in creating emotive images of couples and families. Because what else is there, really?

Openness and connection are essential to creating images of your love. I’ll go first!

this is me

When I’m not behind the camera, I’m usually barefoot in the yard with my hands in the soil. 

I’ll never pass up an opportunity to get all dressed up, but on any given day, you’re most likely to find me in jeans, Vans and a t-shirt.

I lead with an open heart and mind. Believe what you believe, be who you want to be, live how you want to live and love who you love. 

my goal

For many, being in front of the camera is a little awkward. I totally get it. There’s a reason I prefer to spend my time behind the camera! It’s my hope that with a few corny jokes and a little trust, you’ll allow me to coax out your inner goof and catch a glimpse of your romantic side. The best photos happen when you’re most relaxed and comfortable, and I prioritize creating a space where you can let go and be you.

MY SHOOTING STYLE

I’m a documentary-style wedding photographer — no forced smiles or awkward posing here. If I’m doing my job right, you’ll barely notice my presence, but you can trust that I’m catching every small gesture and moment while you enjoy your day. My approach to portraits is a little more structured. I may encourage you with prompts, like whispering in your love’s ear or having your kids do jumping jacks, always with the goal of capturing authentic emotion.

MY EDITING STYLE

I take a “less is more” approach to editing. In most of my work, I prefer to simply enhance what my camera captures rather than make any drastic changes. My classic, timeless style ensures you’ll cherish your photos for years to come.
