Hello!

Hi! My name is Alyssa and I am the one behind the camera at Mae Photo Co. I live in the wonderful city of Grand Rapids with my husband Andrew and our two dogs: Fern and Zayda (our little family is pictured above). I admire my family, marriage, real relationships, indoor plants, laughter, the comfort of home, and creating beautiful art through photographs. I absolutely love living in the city but a dream of mine would be to live in the country and have a small lavender farm (to photograph in of course) and a vegetable garden. My love for photography started way back in high school yearbook and continued on where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Photojournalism at Cornerstone University. I firmly believe that part of my calling on Earth is to create timeless photographs of real moments for people to enjoy. My favorite parts about being a photographer are the people I meet along the way and how uniquely different everyone loves. Now lets chat, I would love to meet you and I would be honored to document this stage in your life!

“We had Alyssa (Mae Photo Co) photograph our engagement and wedding day and could not be happier. She was awesome to work with and both absolutely love her timeless style! From our initial communication to our special day we felt so comfortable working with her. She even gave us hand warmers during our chilly engagement session and brought us umbrellas for our rainy wedding. Every sweet gesture emphasized her friendly personality and made our day that much more special. Alyssa knew exactly how to capture each memory and braved the cold rain to get the most incredible shots. She provided beautiful high quality pictures in a short amount of time and gave us a little sneak peak within a day. All of her photos are literally magazine worthy! We will definitely be repeat customers and highly recommend using her for any of your photography needs.”

“Alyssa is the whole package! She was so helpful, kind, and talented. The whole day was flawless thanks to her! She had a timeline planned out, took all the photos with ease, excitement, and care. The final photos were amazing and I want to frame every single one of them. We can’t stop raving about her and the photos. Can’t wait to find another reason for some professional photos so we can admire her and her work! She was so easy to work with every step of the way (even from a different state).”

“Alyssa is more than amazing to work with. She was extremely helpful is navigating the wedding day timeline as well as keeping us on schedule throughout the day. After every conversation we had leading up to the wedding I had all the confidence in the world that we would have stunning photos. We were blown away with our engagement photos and then when we saw the wedding photos I couldn’t believe how beautiful every image turned out. Looking through the photos took us back to our wedding day. The unique perspective she used to capture our detail photos was wonderful. I want to display every photo. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received on the photos. Not only are her images flawless but she makes you feel so confident and comfortable. She is genuinely a wonderful, kind person and her passion shines through in her photos. We loved working with her and can honestly say we are more than blown away by her skills. We cannot wait to have Alyssa capture more of our life events in the future. We promise you will not be disappointed with working with her.”

“…From the moment I spoke with her I knew she would be the perfect photographer for us and I couldn’t have been more right! She took care of absolutely everything. She is so easy to work with and made my day completely stress free. She wrangled our families with ease and made it so much fun! Not only is she great to work with but her pictures are AMAZING!! We had all of our photos back in less than 3 weeks and they had me in tears they are so wonderful. I can’t say enough good things. Use Alyssa for any photography needs, you won’t regret it! Alyssa we love you!”
