I didn't see the look my mom had when she saw me walking down the isle, but Alysha did. I didn't know there was a hidden jungle in the woods behind our venue, but Alysha did. I wanted to remember the feeling of pure joy that I felt on my wedding day and because of Alysha's talent, I will. I will forever hold the feelings of that day through her incredible photography. Alysha is able to see the details, she is able to capture the small important moments that make the day so special. Her heart is so kind and her passion for what she does comes out in every picture. She has been given a true gift and gives so graciously to so many others through this business. My wedding pictures are only the beginning of my relationship with Blessed Beginnings. I am hoping for more precious life events to be captured and shared with Alysha!

We have found a lifetime photographer with Alysha! Our first session with her was our engagement pictures, followed shortly by our wedding pictures. Every single picture we received was breathtaking. She has such a true talent for working with people and making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Since our wedding she has taken newborn pictures, family pictures, and a fun 1 year old cake smash session! We look forward to every session we have with her and can't wait to have her continue to capture our priceless memories as our family grows!

We have been so blessed to have Alysha photograph our family for over two years now. She has captured gender reveals, birthdays, births and other special family moments for us. Moments we will treasure forever. To say that she is talented would be an understatement. Her kind and calm demeanor instantly puts you at ease in front of the camera. She is always open to ideas and is extremely patient with our children. Truly a kindhearted and beautiful person. We are so thankful for all the beautiful photographs she has given us.
From the moment we met Alysha at our engagement session, it was obvious we had found the perfect fit. We came into our wedding planning process both nervous and excited, which is probably common for most new couples. Alysha immediately calmed those nerves. She didn’t force us into awkward or uncomfortable poses. Sure, she had several suggestions of what might work well, but also let us chime in and offer our own input. We laughed together, and it felt natural. As expected, our engagement photos were flawless. As the wedding approached, the nerves crept back in. Of course we knew Alysha and were confident in her work, but we had also heard so many horror stories from our friends about their wedding photographers. They showed up late. They were unorganized. They spent hours on photos, leaving the couple very little time during the reception. We never had any of these issues. Our wedding day was flawless.Since our wedding photos have been released, we’ve gotten hundreds of complements. Sure, we aren’t a terrible looking couple (haha), but almost all of the credit goes to Alysha and her assistant. On the most important night of our lives, they made us feel comfortable and relaxed. They never barked orders or interfered with our schedule that night. They made sure to be accommodating and flexible, and in turn, captured each and every breathtaking moment. Throughout the entire process, Alysha was always easily accessible. We texted, called, sent emails and Facebook messages, always getting a swift response. Oh, and as an added bonus, she had our photos ready two weeks after our wedding. That’s almost unheard of. (Her contract says six weeks so this may not be normal.) For our entire life, we will have memories to look back on because of Alysha. While the photos themselves are amazing, the experience was almost equally as incredible. It was seamless and perfect. We can’t recommend her enough.

I can't say enough about how wonderfully talented and sweet Alysha is! She did our engagement photos in June, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! She listened to and incorporated some of our ideas into the session, as well as giving us ideas/instruction throughout, all while making us feel super comfortable. My fiance hates getting his picture taken, but she really was able to make us feel relaxed. The pictures turned out AMAZING, and she really was able to capture the love between us!! So much more than I could have ever asked for! There are so many good pictures, it is going to be hard to pick my favorites for our save the dates! Although that's a good problem to have! :-) Thank you so much Alysha for the best experience! I can't wait to have her shoot my bridal portraits and our wedding next year!

Alysha is one of the most talented people I have ever met. She did our engagement photos and our wedding photos as well. Both were absolutely amazing. She made us feel comfortable from the first time we met. My husband has always been shy in front of the camera and never been big into photos so I was nervous about that, but Alysha was able to open him up and make him laugh and smile. So the photos came out great. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter how well you can take photos unless you have the personality to match the skill, which she has. She is able to bring out and capture the best side of everyone. I cannot thank her enough for all of the hard work she has put into capturing our special moments and making sure they were edited just right. My husband and I will continue to use Alysha as our family photographer as we start to grow our family. I would most definitely recommend Blessed Beginnings Photography to anyone.
