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.

I first fell in love with life on the road in 2018. My best friend had left for Utah in her old suv and told us she’d see us in a few months. I took the easy route and flew out to see her and we car camped for a week in the middle of July. It was blistering hot– the kind of heat that makes you question if you’re in a dryer– and we lived off of ramen noodles and granola bars and bathed once in 8 days but we were so incredibly contempt out there alone. I remember coming home and wondering why we all felt the need to have so much stuff, when clearly you don’t need much at all.
I spent the following few years knowing at some point in my life I’d live on the road. When 2020 came and chaos ensued I decided to take advantage of my suddenly free schedule. I was booked to photograph a small elopement out in LA in July and decided to make a trip out of it. I called up my friend in Colorado and we mapped out a 3 week trip that looked a little something like:
Boulder, CO —> Moab, UT
Moab, UT —> Bryce Canyon, UT
Bryce Canyon —> Joshua Tree, CA
Joshua Tree —> Los Angeles, CA (quick pit stop for the wedding)
Los Angeles, CA —> Big Sur, CA
Big Sur, CA —> San Francisco, CA
San Francisco, CA —> Yosemite, CA
Yosemite, CA —> High Sierras
