Hey there, I'm

Alyssa Rachelle!

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wedding photographer based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the authentic couple wanting an exclusive experience and timeless captures. 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!

Tyler Layman is the epitome of a country boy. If he isn’t working, he can probably be found out on the water fishing, in the woods hunting, or on a baseball field. The light was gorgeous during his senior session. But honestly, I was more excited about spending time with him, because I was tomboy […]
