Hands down Alyssa goes above and beyond, from initial communications, to answering any questions you may have throughout the process, beautiful engagement photos that helped to understand the process and her technique that makes the special day even that much more special. The quality of the pictures, warmth in the photos and the emotion she captured leaves me speechless and grateful we were fortunate enough to have had her as our photographer. We couldn't be happier and a smile comes to our face every time we look at our photos of our wedding day. Endless appreciation to Alyssa and cannot recommend her enough to anyone that is looking for the memories captured beautifully epic photos!
I don't even know where to start in expressing how amazing Alyssa is. She is such a gem, a true artist. She brought such joy to our wedding day. Not only did she capture everything beyond beautifully, but she added magic to our day by creating experiences for us throughout the day while also encouraging us to express ourselves. She helped us all let our guard down and be comfortable in ourselves and it translated into how much we enjoyed the entirety of our day. She was there to capture every authentic moment - subtly prompting in the moments she needed to and shifting into the background at others. To the point where I would describe her as the most important person there that day but also sometimes I didn't even notice she was there (in the best way possible). She has a sixth sense about reading people and feeling out the vibe of the event and translating that into the art she creates. I couldn't have asked for a better representation of our wedding and we can't stop looking at the beautiful moments she captured. She was also so helpful in the lead up and was a go to resource during planning - always super responsive and had great advice and referrals.
I think Alyssa was meant to be our photographer for our wedding. From the first phone call I knew she was the person I wanted to take our pictures. She is so friendly, positive, and passionate. She truly made taking pictures so much fun and she went above and beyond to create pictures that will last me and my husband a lifetime. I told my husband that I can't believe these are the pictures we get to show our kids someday! Alyssa is someone that genuinely cares about her clients so don't hesitate in picking her if you're trying to decide on the perfect photographer.

Alyssa is amazing! I had both my engagement pictures and wedding pictures taken by her. It was like having a friend with us. The pictures are amazing and she was so flexible, fun, and helped make the day go by so smoothly!
I love Alyssa's photography style. She has so many great suggestions on things to do that end up looking great in pictures! The best part is that she makes it so fun! She really took her time to get to know us and understand the style we were looking for. As others mention, she does everything possible to get the perfect shot!
Let's start with the engagement shoot.We wanted unique pictures that didn't look staged and she totally captured it. I was also debating between beach and woodsy background and she was able to find a location where we could have both!!! Talk about going above and beyond. My now husband who isn't into taking pictures had so much fun and this session made him change his mind. He actually looked forward to the wedding shoot and I repeat, He's not much of a picture person!
The day of the wedding, I changed the location on Alyssa and she was so flexible! I had initially thought we would take the pictures at the hotel but that didn't work out. She was so punctual to everything and made sure we got the shots we wanted. She even helped when the dress zipper was malfunctioning! After the house, I suggested going to a park and then changed the location on her. Again, super friendly and flexible she happily went to the new location. At the restaurant she was so helpful. She helped me check-in with the restaurant staff. We had a small group but this is another example of her going above and beyond. I highly recommend Alyssa for any photography needs! The pictures are great quality and unique and she's an amazing person to work with. I have been getting so many compliments on the pictures.

First of all if you are even thinking about booking with Alyssa Flores just do it! I chose Alyssa to photograph my husband and my engagement shoot and wedding. Looking at multiple photographers on the central coast and seeing Alyssa's wonderful work made it an easy choice. Alyssa is super professional and so down to earth. She worked with me as much as possible through the stressful time of wedding planning and was always understanding. Alyssa caught every moment perfectly, looking at our photos makes us smile! I will be going to Alyssa for future sessions.

I don't even know where to begin! Alyssa is so so sweet and such an amazing photographer and a literal artist! She captured our wedding in such a beautiful way and I will treasure the memories and pictures for the rest of my life. She was so sweet and thoughtful about everything she did. I emailed a lot of photographers in the beginning and she was the only one we actually had a meeting with and we knew as soon as we met that we wanted to go with her!! She just seemed to fit with our vision perfectly!
My Pastor of 22 years was able to marry us and he passed away 2 days after the wedding. When Alyssa heard she edited and sent me a bunch of pictures of himand us at our wedding and it was so precious to us and so thoughtful.
Alyssa not only rolled with our every request she also was quick to help us prank my husband twice during the wedding and help me climb over a fence and sand dune in my big fluffy dress and proceeded to almost lay in the sand to get the perfect shot of us.
Her second shooter Anna was also fantastic and amazing! She came to our rescue with drinks during all our family portraits and was a literal hero!
I will forever recommend Alyssa and her awesome team for any event or life memory you want to capture!

My fiancé and I had such an amazing time during our engagement session with Alyssa! I know Alyssa (and her adorable kiddos!) more personally and she is so genuine and incredibly generous. John, my fiancé, told me that she made it so natural, comfortable, and fun and I couldn't agree more!
If you ever get the chance to hop into the ocean during a photoshoot with Alyssa- take it! John was all for it were as I felt more hesitant, but I went with it and I'm so so happy I did. The pictures are so incredibly stunning (both in the ocean and out)!
I cannot wait to have her do our wedding. John and I are so reassured to have her capture our big day! Not only is the quality of her work amazing, but Alyssa is amazing to work with as well :)
(It's so hard to pick the favorites, each photo is so beautiful, I cannot stop looking at them!)
