Private Estate Wedding ⎮ Amanda & Drew McDowell

Dear Amanda and Drew,

Perfection is the first word that comes to mind when I think of your day, but that one word doesn’t do your incredible day justice. Your day, while planned to a beautiful T, was truly amazing becuase of the energy you two share with one another, and your family and friends! From the river of tears at the first look, to the cheers from the bridal party, to the laughter and smiles with family, to the traditions during the ceremony, to the party and dance moves under the white bridal tent, I could not stop smiling all day long. Everywhere I turned it was a true celebration of you two and your love for one another!

I am so incredibly thankful that you chose me to be apart of your journey and capture your big day! I still smile every time I see your images, and I love that we still keep in touch, because you two mean so much to me!

So cheers to married life, and I am so excited to see what your next chapter brings!



Kind Words from Amanda and Drew:

Wow! After a wonderfully memorable engagement session, Alyssa continues to deliver memorable experiences. She captured our wedding day in April and memorialized the day for us with a gorgeous gallery of images that capture the essence of the day and the love between my husband and I and the joy of our family and friends.

Though a little windy at times, the images Alyssa took depict the beauty of the natural surroundings and highlight the joy and emotions felt by all there. She has such a great eye for natural surroundings and got amazing shots of us with the oak trees that look so magical. She was able to work with the elements to get great pictures even in the blustery conditions. Her gallery impressed my husband and I with so many wonderful shots of us as well as amazing family formal portraits. The whole experience with Alyssa was effortless, much like how she was able to capture us in our pictures.

Her communication leading up the big day was clear and helped to point out some areas of consideration that I had forgotten. Her wedding experience shined in her ability to wrangle the groomsmen and keep our lofty picture schedule on time. We had many family pictures that she was able to breeze through which left us time to be a part of the cocktail hour and be present for the majority of the wedding which was important to us.

She continuously impressed us throughout the day, helping the DJ with his schedule and even at one point passing out wine and glasses to our tables. As I was not able to have a wait staff due to COVID, this was so amazing and completely above and beyond her duties. Having vendors like Alyssa can really transform your somewhat hectic and stressful wedding day by helping you to soak in the moments and be present. My parents raved about her and her second shot photographer for weeks after the event, so impressed by her and her professionalism.

The gallery she delivered is just amazing and we are still discovering new favorites. The task of creating a wedding album will be challenging, only because there are so many amazing images to choose from! Alyssa has cemented her place in our hearts. We definitely will be coming back to Alyssa to capture our future life events.
