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!

“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!”

“I can’t say enough good things about Alyssa! Her kind and laid back personality made her SO fun to work with! From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, Alyssa created such a comfortable and loving atmosphere for us. Her communication and suggestions throughout the planning process were so appreciated, especially since I was planning my wedding from out of town! We just got our wedding pictures back last week I could not be happier with them! Her photos are amazing paintings of light, and she is a true artist. Not only will you end your wedding with stunning photos to last a lifetime, you will leave with a new friend! I wholeheartedly recommend Alyssa to any bride-to-be.”

“Alyssa is everything that you want in a photographer. She was a referral from a good friend and is now photographing 4 weddings of close family and friends who loved our wedding photos as much as we did. Not only is she a true photojournalist, but she makes the experience so much fun. Our wedding day had a heat index of over 100 degrees, and you’d never know it from our pictures! She catches those perfect in between moments, but also is willing to do the traditional ones. I’d refer her to anyone and everyone! She is easily the most talented photographer that we looked into. I’ll definitely be using her for our future family photos. You cannot go wrong with her”
