Hey there, I'm

Alyssa Rachelle!

Welcome to my blog! I'm a Chattanooga wedding photographer specializing in wedding, elopement, and family photography around the greater Chattanooga, Nashville & Knoxville areas in Tennessee. I thrive off of building genuine relationship that last beyond wedding days! I'm also a wife, boymom to Beckett James, enneagram type 1, and love all-things nature. So, basically if I'm not doing something photography-related, you'll find me outside with my toddler recovering from perfectionism. Anyways, enjoy viewing my latest work, resources for clients and friends, and glimpses into my life!

Emily & Ben wanted to go for an open field, natural look for their engagement session (my fave). I pitched the Chickamauga Battlefield. Since Emily had never been there, she and her mom toured it…on foot…and got lost for FOUR MILES!!! The adventure ended in a good laugh. We began their engagement session with a […]

Ashton’s eyes locked in on Baron when she was meeting her colleagues at her new job. At first Baron was a bit shy and was the last one of the 20-something other guys to talk to her. He had to ask her out after talking for a week and getting to know that she was […]

Part of my love for being a wedding photographer is 100% because of the venues I get to discover. The Kincaid House in the greater Knoxville, Tennessee area has to be one of the best ones I’ve come across. It’s almost too beautiful to put words to, but I’ll find them because I have to […]

Three descriptions for Maddie & Dawson’s Castleton Farms wedding—HUGE guest count, classic elegance, and spirited.

Their joy and genuine love for others are […]

Possibly an unpopular opinion: Chattanooga has been overdue for a wedding venue that’s not a barn! Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s happened! Jackie and her husband, Stephen, bought this land when it was a golf course and turned it into a dream venue, Blackberry Ridge…in SEVEN MONTHS! Is that not impressive?! Not only that, but […]
