My name is Alysha!! I am a wedding and portrait photographer serving Richmond, Virginia and beyond! My greatest titles in life: follower of Jesus, wife to Drew, mom to Lila & Oakley and foster mom to many.  I am the ultimate master of the laugh cry, self appointed professional baby snuggler and a true lover of life. I am a true enneagram 2.  I find joy in being active, enjoying an afternoon iced coffee and having a clean house.  When I am not working, I am hustling between carpool line pick up and drop offs, playdates with friends and being soccer/gymnastics mom! I gave up my career as a nurse to become a full time stay at home mom and because of that choice, Blessed Beginnings Photography began. At the time my husband was deployed overseas and our daughter was busy experiencing all of her first big moments. First holidays, first birthday, first time she walked and I knew I wanted to best document this for my husband. I went to Best Buy and bought a canon rebel and truly the rest was history. I truly am so thankful you stopped by and I look forward to working with you and becoming friends!

hey y'all

What are clients saying about me?

 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. 

working with Alysha was absolutely magical! she was so much fun and so easy to work with! we had a blast with her on our wedding day! the photos are breathtaking and the best decision we made for our wedding day was having her as our photographer! I would choose her over and over again and we already can't wait to find a reason to celebrate with her (because that's what her shoots are, a fun celebration) all over again! thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing the best day of our lives!

Alysha is absolutely amazing; a very gifted photographer and such a sweet, kind and gentle spirit
