I first met Alyssa when she was working at Premier Bride’s Perfect Dress next door to my studio. She regularly assured me that when she got married, I was going to be her photographer. Fast forward a year and it was time! I had a blast getting to know Ryan, hanging out with the ladies from the dress shop, and observing a great group of people having such a fantastic time. Enjoy!
