Hey there, I'm

Alyssa Rachelle!

Welcome to my blog! I'm a Chattanooga portrait and event photographer specializing in wedding, elopement, and family photography around the greater Chattanooga, Tennessee, area. I thrive off of building genuine relationships 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. Anyway, enjoy viewing my latest work, resources for clients and friends, and glimpses into my life!
