Wedding Photographer

Oh hey!

So my name is Alysia 
(it's pronounced "Ah-Leesha") 

Weird right? 
I’m a bare feet and red wine enthusiast. 
I love camping; a last minute plan; a good rainstorm; late night conversations around a fire; turning strangers into friends, and just overall enjoying the spectrum of this human experience. 

I can be super awkward - and not even the cool, endearing kind of awkward - more like, the raw, aggressive strain of awkward that you pray you will outgrow by the time you leave high school, but then it stays...and you have to learn to embrace it. 

I'm a really tiny person. 
Feel free to laugh at me when I have to climb on
random things to get the shot I want.
There will probably be some weird stunts that go down in order to make that photographic magic happen.

 

I will probably cry at your wedding
because I'm a huge sap.
Personal vows, slide shows, and your family's speeches will get me every time. 

I really can't believe that I'm lucky enough to have a job where I get to to be present for one of the most cherished days in a person's life and be surrounded by so much love. 

In a nutshell:

- Tea Drinker
- Night Thinker
- ENFP
- Harry Potter
- The Office
- Sushi
- Thai Food
- Gardening
- Collector of Cool Mugs
- Book Worm
- Wife
- Mother

my work



I grew up in Penticton, BC but currently live in Athabasca, Alberta.
I travel between both provinces frequently so I serve clients in both areas.
 

My approach to photography is definitely more on the photojournalistic side. 
I love to be witness to the beauty of unposed moments - to see the interaction among a gathering of loved ones and move in the natural flow of events surrounding your
time together, but I will also take the time to guide my clients through creative posing and use prompts to create emotional responses and expression.

I'd say my style lives somewhere in between dreamy and earthy. 


I find my work's purpose in capturing those fleeting expressions and the tiny fragments and subtleties that make us who we are. I believe the photos we leave behind are a huge part of our legacy, and I hold strongly the importance of investing in a photographer who you feel a connection to and who understands the value of capturing your life's most
precious moments. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to get to know me! 
I can't wait to hear from you.
