Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer-1.jpg

Welcome!  I am so glad your search for your photographer has brought you here.  My name is Alyssa and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in the Lehigh Valley. I serve couples and families throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas including Bucks County, Philadelphia, New Jersey and beyond.

I wear many hats but my most important roles are as a wife to my amazing husband, Ben, and mama to our two beautiful little girls.  I met my husband at Penn State University (We are!)  and followed my love to the Lehigh Valley where we currently are living the country life with our babes, pups, cat, and chickens!  

A few of my favorite things:  Golden Retrievers, sweet tea, beach days, bubble baths before bed, thunderstorms, HomeGoods and anything Pottery Barn.

Check out the sweet video below to meet our little family.

My Approach & Philosophy

The creative process involves working closely with each of my clients in order to get to know their vision and story.  Each wedding is unique and offers an opportunity for a love story to be told in completely different ways.  I focus on documenting authentic moments paired with a heavy emphasis on the pretty little details of your wedding day. My signature style is to produce editorial-style images, with a focus on classic skin tones with a film aesthetic.  

Serving my clients and providing a tailored experience that goes well beyond simply documenting and delivering images is something I am truly passionate about. I am committed to establishing a trusting relationship with my clients and celebrating along with you on your journey to your wedding day!

Currently accepting weddings, portrait sessions and editorial projects for 2019 & 2020.


"From day one, it was like working with a close friend, and Alyssa is also very professional, on top of her game, and a great communicator. I can't even find words good enough to express how perfect our experience has been. "

"I highly recommend Hope & Stay! There is a special bond that you must have with your photographer. Some people have it and some people don’t. Alyssa definitely has it! She will make sure you are comfortable before, during and after the wedding photo shoot. The Hope & Stay team checks and double checks that your wedding party looks great in every photo. The attention to detail is incredible."
