Swimming down in pristine surrounds of the Gorge in the summer and sledding in the winter are quintessential experiences Alyssa remembers growing up at Chatto Creek. After developing an interest in photography in the sixth form at Dunstan High School, she initially pursued a career in aromatherapy and massage.
Yet her passion for photography lingered, offering Alyssa a new medium for creativity and self-expression. When Alyssa’s cousin—a professional photographer—asked her to 'second shoot’ a wedding, Alyssa fell head over heels in love.
“Wedding photography is so much more than simply capturing memories, its connecting with people and life itself. I think my whole passion and drive comes from a deeper sense of knowing this and really being able to embrace documenting some of life’s most cherished moments. Understanding who my clients are and what is important to them helps me in my creativity for planning their day to truly reflect their authentic personalities."
