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!

 A Southern Blue Ridge Mountain Wedding | Chattanooga Wedding Photographer Having a wedding during a pandemic isn’t easy on anyone involved.

Like everyone else and their mother, we started a home garden during the COVID-19 quarantine. I’m not one to jump on bandwagons, but we’d been talking about it for some time, and with food shortages and other concerns during the pandemic, we decided to go for it! Gardening is foreign to me. Thankfully, Jimmy’s family […]
