Hello love, I’m Alyssa.
What sets my entire being a flame is watching love bloom. More specifically, love stories that haven’t walked the easy road in life.
They’ve had the cards stacked against them. Where adversity, resilience and fighting for their right to be treated as an equal is the songbird of their existence. Since you’re here, you’re looking for that someone to accept your love and help you document it in all its glory. I want to take a moment to let you know how perfect you are, EXACTLY the way that you are. So is your beautiful love story that has grown so much that you’re ready to take the next step and “put a ring on it.” Taking that leap is stressful and overwhelming in more ways than one. You’re not only trying to manage your own expectations but your partner, your families, battling societal “norms” and the wedding industries tacky traditions.
Let’s toss out the rule book, carve away the bullshit and celebrate the way YOU want to celebrate your love. I’ll sweep away the self-doubt and stress of it all in the process. I want to give you the all access pass to be un-tamed, wildly in-love and cherished. Will you let me guide you on the adventure of a lifetime and document a love that truly stands for, “Until death do you part..”?

"We absolutely loved our session with Alyssa. She has a kind soul and an eye for magic. We are blown away at our photos and the way our love was captured so perfectly! She went above and beyond to ask genuinely how she could best support us, how she could continue learning and growing as an LGBTQ+ ally, and it meant a lot to both my husband and me. 1 million percent recommend going with SolFlower and Alyssa!" - Jackson
