When it all comes down to it... when you're old and reminiscing on the "good ole days" with your equally wrinkled (but still smoking hot) babe by your side, pictures are the only thing you'll have to look back on and share for generations to come. I can think of no better gift than captured moments in time and this is what has really sparked my love for what I do. If you are looking for artistry and adventure, look no further.

Hi, I’m Alyson: the gal behind the lens! Oh, and I’m also the lucky one who gets to capture your love story! At a young age, I initially fell in love with photography as an art form for self-expression, and over the years my love for photography has morphed into the ultimate storytelling tool.

When Alexis first contacted me about their wedding plans at an ancient Spanish monastery I was pretty hooked. After some digging, I found that this building had quite the history behind it…
Construction of the Monastery of St Bernard de Clairvaux began in 1133 AD in Sacramenia, Spain. In 1925, William Randolph Hearst purchased the building and the whole Monastery was dismantled stone by stone, bound with protective hay, packed in over 11,000 wooden crates, numbered for identification and shipped to the US. Soon after the shipment arrived, Hearst’s financial problems forced most of his collection to be sold at auction. The crates remained in a warehouse in Brooklyn, NY for 26 years until they were purchased by two entrepreneurs for use as a tourist attraction. It took 19 months and the equivalent of $20 million dollars to put the monastery back together where it now calls home in Miami, FL. In 1953 Time Magazine called it “the biggest jigsaw puzzle in history”.
Here’s a look into their magical day:)
