Capturing The Spirit of Your Wedding Day In a Natural Way

Serving Nova Scotia & Maritime Canada

When you think back on your wedding day, you want to remember the moments as if they just happened:

  • The feeling of excitement as you saw your guests begin arriving

  • The look on your dad’s face just before he gave you away

  • The walk back down the aisle and beaming as a newly married couple

  • Your grandparents dancing together – still so in love

So it’s only natural that you’re searching for a photographer who looks for and appreciates both the simple moments and significant memories.

Classic and clean. Sweet and heartfelt. Memories that truly encapsulate the day. 



a lifetime’s worth of memories

“From the tiny details, to the large group shots with family and children, to the intimacy and warmth of the photos of just the two of us, Alyssa captured a lifetime’s worth of memories on that day. What initially drew us to Alyssa’s work is how natural and timeless her work is. We are so grateful we had her capture our day and that her beautiful photography is scattered about our home reminding us of the love on our wedding day.”

Nice to Meet You.
I’m Alyssa!

Getting married is such a joyous and amazing time, and your photos should reflect that. 

Over the past 8+ years as a wedding photographer, I’ve learned what couples truly want when they look back at their photographs. 

And as a newly married woman myself (I married my love in 2018, so I can still call myself a newlywed – right?!), I’ve learned firsthand just how important these memories are. ​​​​​​​

You want natural images full of vibrance and rich color.

Photos that make you happy simply by looking at them because one glance transports you back to the beautiful emotions of the day.

That’s why I aim for timeless, classic photographs of your day, using both real film and digital.

And while some posing will inevitably come into play, you won’t find me adjusting every last hair or moving your fingers exactly where I want them. Because that isn’t my (or I’m guessing your) version of natural. Agreed?

Instead, I focus on doing what I do best – taking a ton of really great photos! In different ways, with different settings. And then editing them with as true-to-life colors as possible.

So the spirit of your day will live on for years to come.

A Perfectly Simple Process

You’ve probably never planned a wedding before, so you may be understandably nervous about a lot of things. After all, you’re trusting me with your money, your time, and one of the most significant milestones of your life.

That’s why I don’t like to add any confusion or stress to an already stressful situation. Instead, my goal is to steady the waters and bring a sense of peace and calm to not just the wedding day – but all the days before and after.


Pure Joy

Everyone should get a chance to witness the moments of raw emotion that I get the privilege to capture. Because this kind of pure joy is priceless.


communicative & helpful

“Alyssa was communicative and helpful from our engagement photos to receiving prints after the wedding. Several family members and friends offered unsolicited feedback about how much they loved her personality and the images she captured.”
