Your Portrait Experience

Let's be honest... you don't want pictures. You want GREAT pictures that are fun, easy, and make you look beautiful. Years of posing and lighting knowledge along with attention to detail all combine to make sure you get photos that you LOVE! 

I will plan the session out for you, recommend locations, and discuss your preferences beforehand. During the session, I will completely guide you on what to do. We will play games to get real smiles and movement. It will be so much fun that you forget your picture is being taken.

Are you awkward? Nah. I hear that all the time, and I am confident you will look and feel your best.

stop posing. start laughing.

Start by filling out the contact form on my website, and I will reach out asap! I'll send you a text and/or schedule a phone call to go over your hopes and vision for your photoshoot.

From there, I will recommend which package I recommend for you (listed below).

1. Say Hello

2. schedule the details

After finding a date and time that works best, I will email over a contract and invoice for the shoot. A 50% retainer is due at the time of booking, and the remaining balance is due one week prior to the session.

Next, I will recommend. some locations that fit your vision for the photoshoot. We can also discuss outfit options!

3. photo session day

I like to get a mix of posed images and candids. I'll arrive at the session with an idea of what you like best for photos (based off our discuss and an optional questionnaire). 

The rest is up to me! I will give you complete guidance on what to do and where to go. No more wondering what to do with your hands! The majority of the time, I'll be telling you funny prompts to get you laughing and keep you relaxed.

4. choose your images

Within a week, I will email you a proof gallery of unedited images for you to look through. From there, you get to choose your favorites and submit them to me. 

I will then go through and edit the portraits you have selected. The final images will be finished within 2-3 weeks of your photo shoot date.

5. download your photographs & get your prints

Once the final gallery is edited, you will receive an email with the images so that you can download them! 

If you have ordered any prints or products, they will also be available for reviewing at this time. Once they are approved, they will be shipped to you or available for pickup.

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!
