I am a passionate wedding and portrait photographer located near Chattanooga, Tennessee (in Cleveland, to be specific). I make frequent trips to middle TN, east TN, and all surrounding areas.

I absolutely love what I do. I have had an enthusiasm for capturing all of life since a very young age, and it has been a true privilege for me to be able to freeze moments in time for families cherish forever. I fully enjoy capturing candid and authentic moments, but also getting a little goofy and having some fun. It is my goal to create images that are as full of life and unique as you. I can’t wait to make magic together!

Your WEDDING + PORTRAIT Photographer



am so excited you're here! My name is Alyssa, but we’re friends now, so you can call me Allie! 


Say Hello

I can remember running around the farm with my cousins and siblings and doing photoshoots of them jumping off hay-bales and posing on tractors. 

Photography became my official "side hustle" while in high school and college as I pursued a career in the medical field. However, during grad school, I decided to jump in feet first to the career I knew I REALLY wanted deep down... as a wedding and portrait photographer. I pour my entire heart into creating stunning images and the best client experience possible. I truly have a passion for my "job," and I hope you can tell!

Here's a super old photo from 2016 when I was taking pictures at my sister's wedding for fun!


My background story

ooking back, it's impossible to tell exactly when my love of photography began. 


A Look into my


1 / 4

I come from a big family! Growing up, I spent every Sunday at my grandparents' house with my mom, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. I am just as close to all of them as I am to my siblings. Even as an adult, we still continue this tradition, and now I get to bring my own family along! 

I am a mom of the two cutest little boys (one is a newborn, so we are waiting on updated family pics!). I love spending my days playing with them and exploring the world with a childlike spirit. Of course, I could never do anything without the love of my AMAZING partner, best friend, and #1 supporter... my husband, Tyler (thanks for everything you do, babe!).

My religion is central to my life, and I hope Jesus shines through my actions! Over the years, I have enjoyed serving my Lord, church, and community through different ways such as helping with youth group, leading Bible studies at local middle schools, traveling for mission trips, etc.

My bucket list for traveling is fairly long. I enjoy two different types of traveling... one is for vacation and adventure and the other is to explore new cultures!

Outside of the continental US, I have been to Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Honduras, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic. We are super excited to be adding more places to this list in 2024!

My Favorite Things

Alyssa was an AMAZING part of our wedding and I would highly recommend her! Our engagement photos turned out so beautifully that we decided to have a photobook as our wedding guest book!
Our wedding photos are also amazing and we will cherish them forever. She was so organized and thorough and an amazing person to have around on our special day.
We couldn’t recommend Alyssa more- our pics turned out lovely and she was a pleasure to have around on the wedding day! She is super organized, had scouted locations at the venue so there would be minimal downtime, and was very helpful in guiding everyone. My mom is a photographer as well and loves the pictures, so clearly Alyssa knows what she’s doing. Loved her!
- Austen and Saxon P.

Alyssa and her team are seriously the best! They did my sisters wedding last year and just did my wedding last month. The photos were top quality, captured our day perfectly, and they helped guide us through the entire process with ease. I never worried about photos once! Alyssa and her team are definitely our favorite, and the first vendor I called when planning our wedding! The date was honestly based on her availability! Cannot recommend enough!
- Amber and Devin W.

Allie did an amazing job! Words cannot express how happy I am with EVERY SINGLE ONE of my pictures! She captured memories and moments that I will cherish forever! She made me feel so comfortable during the shoot, I am not photogenic, AT ALL but she walked me through it and made every pose, laugh, and smile so simple. She was willing to do anything to make me happy, she definitely knows what she is doing! You can tell she absolutely loves what she does, and it shows in her work!
- Megan and Bryson B.

Choosing Allie with Alyssa Michelle Photography was one of the best decisions we made when it came to planning our wedding. Allie has unmatched professionalism, enthusiasm, and creativity when it comes to her work, and the proof is literally in the pictures! She made our day so memorable and fun, Allie catered to all of our needs, and we even purchased prints and a photo album from her for memories that we are able to share with friends and family. Make the best choice and choose Alyssa Michelle Photography!
- Christian and Carson H.

Allie is the whole package when it comes to wedding photography. She didn't miss a beat. She was timely, friendly & helpful..THEN..she whipped her camera out & the most glorious pictures ever came raining down! I'm blown away after seeing how beautiful & elegant the photos are that she has captured. She gave me a sneak peak the day after. The rest of the photos came back a couple days after that edited and all. I could not be more thrilled with my photographer! I picked her out of the 35 photographers that emailed me their portfolio because the talent was obvious & I'm beyond satisfied! Big Thank You to Allie. You're amazing and so are my wedding photos! ;)
- Candace and Mason H.

Allie is one of the most professional but fun people that I have ever worked with! She has such wonderful joy and a genuine passion for her clients. I was amazed by her fast communications, her speed in getting our photos edited and sent to us, and she was such a joy to have with us on our wedding day. I would recommend Alyssa Michelle Photography a million times over. If you are looking for the best photographer out there, Allie is your girl!
- Katie and Jameson P.

From the very first meeting, we were so excited to work with Allie. Not only does she capture beautiful photos, she also brings a fun but professional energy! You can absolutely tell she is passionate about what she does! The photos were always delivered earlier than expected. She made my husband and I feel comfortable behind the camera for our engagement shoot which then carried over into our wedding. It was a wonderful experience working with Allie and we are excited to work with her in the future!
- Shannon and Allen H.

Just wow! Alyssa is by far one of the friendliest, positive, and professional people I’ve had the pleasure to work with. She’s very organized and easy to communicate with. She made me feel so at ease and confident with posing for pictures (wedding and boudoir), which I was honestly very nervous about. All of the pictures were beyond what I ever could have imagined. My husband and I are so grateful we found the perfect person to help us remember the most amazing day. I wouldn’t change anything about my experience with Alyssa, and I would absolutely and HIGHLY recommend her. 
- Shannon and Ron D.

Choosing a photographer can be a very hard part in the planning process of a wedding! I was so thankful to have Alyssa Michelle Photography be apart of our special day. I wanted our photos to represent “being in the moment” and capture the emotions behind the photos. AMP did just that and more. From our engagement shoot (that turned out perfect), to our wedding day - we have beautiful photos and memories to look back on forever. We are so thankful and look forward to working with AMP in the future! 
- Lea and Dakota B.

Allie was AMAZING! From our very first meeting, she was invested in making my wedding day exactly what I hoped. She was completely profressional AND so friendly and easygoing. During the wedding, she went with the flow (we had flowers that were late to show up and several last minute photo additions and changes) while ensuring that I got ALL the photos I wanted. She remembered small details from our conversations and worked hard to make my vision a reality in our pictures. She made us all laugh and our pictures look real, which was exactly what I wanted. Our photos turned out SO lovely! They were beautifully done, and Allie had such a quick turnaround. My husband and I really enjoyed our sneak peak only one day after the wedding! We were so surprised when Allie had our photos back within about a week. 
She was excellent and so personable. I highly highly highly recommend her for your wedding photography! 
- Lindy and Kenton E.

I literally can not say enough good things about Allie!! She photographed our wedding this year and made our day absolutely perfect!
As someone who is shy in front of a camera and taking pictures is not my husbands favorite thing to do 😅, she made us feel so comfortable and confident. Most importantly she made it fun!
Hiking is our passion and we love a good adventure and Allie was right there with us hiking down stairs to the waterfall. She didn’t hesitate to hop in the water her self to make our wedding dreams a reality.
I 10/10 would recommend her to anyone!! 🧡  
Some photos included just to highlight some of her amazing work from our wedding day.
And thank you again for making our day so special.
- Kaitlyn and Damon W.

Allie was by far the best photographer we have ever worked with! She took all of our worries and eased them. We felt so relaxed working with her and it shows in our photos! She was able to direct traffic the day of and was always responsive to answer all questions prior to the wedding day!
