Born and raised in the beautiful PNW, I love getting to take photographs in the place I call home. I am an inclusive elopement and wedding photographer based in Redmond, but I also like to travel whenever I can! I am a golden hour chaser with a passion for capturing the little details, intimate moments, and telling a story with my images.

Hello there, I'm Lyssa! 

Lyssa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! She truly loves what she does and you can clearly see it throughout your process working with her. She was super prepared and helped us with our Plan B and C when it rained on our original date. She kept us on schedule and didn’t rush us in any way. Lyssa tailors her sessions and really considers what you need and want on your day. It was easy listening to her guide us through the different poses and she is absolutely a professional when it comes to shooting. Lyssa fit into our group seamlessly and we had so much fun with her… for 3 whole DAYS!!! We’re so glad to call her a friend! On the customer service side, she was super responsive and provided great detail on what to expect/how to be prepared for our day! She also did an amazing job editing the photos. The photos came out beautifully and we could not be happier with the album we received.

Our experience with Lyssa as our wedding photographer was nothing short of spectacular. From the very beginning, Lyssa showcased professionalism and a genuine passion for her craft. Her outstanding communication skills set the tone for a seamless journey from our engagement shoot to the big day.

I wholeheartedly recommend Lyssa to anyone seeking a wedding photographer who not only possesses exceptional skills but also demonstrates unwavering support and understanding.
Her ability to blend professionalism with genuine care for her clients is a rare find in the industry. Lyssa truly exceeded our expectations, and we are forever grateful for the beautiful memories she has immortalized through her lens. If you want a photographer who goes above and beyond, Lyssa is the artist you've been searching for to capture the magic of your big day.

We can only say great things about Alyssa and her part in our wedding day! She was incredibly thoughtful, patient, fun to work with and so sweet. She even came down the night prior to our wedding to location scout which was a big help for time management the day of. We are so grateful for her role in our day and she integrated herself seamlessly into the family/bridal party. The photos were stunning and we had so many to choose from. I can't wait until we can work with her again!

I don’t have one negative thing to say about Lyssa! Back in 2020 my husband and I eloped at mount rainier, but on a cloudy day where you couldn’t see the mountain at all, so I’ve been wanting to go back and get the pictures I envisioned. I couldn’t be happier that I went with Lyssa because the pictures are GORGEOUS. Literally the mountain pics of my dreams!! I look at them everyday and feel like a princess. The pictures are not only perfect, but Lyssa was amazing to work with. By the end of the day I felt like I had made a new friend. She was so friendly and super helpful with giving us direction on how to pose, she really went the extra mile to get the perfect shots. I highly recommend working with her! <3

Lyssa was our wedding photographer this fall! We cannot find enough words to express how talented she is! Our pictures are above any of our expectations! Not only they are beautiful, they full of life!!!! Lyssa is amazing to work with too! Her kindness and positive attitude, being super professional and engaging is all you want when getting pictures taken! We would like to highly recommend taking engagement session with Lyssa prior your Big Day because it will help you to feel more relaxed, find your best looks and be more comfortable - and Lyssa will make sure to give you very helpful hints!

Love love love Lyssa! We definetely will be back for any future family pictures!!

Alyssa is one of the many angels who saved our wedding day! We are so grateful to have met her when we did and that she was so willing to work with our circumstances. Planning a Covid wedding was beyond crazy, but Alyssa took such great care of us and even went beyond her role as photographer to ensure the timeline was right, our dreams and visions for the mood, lighting, and vibe were met. She has great input and is highly sensitive to the ever-complicated dynamics of families — she took initiative to get in touch with our venue coordinator herself and scope out the details prior to the wedding, she even hired a bonus assistant to ensure that every moment was captured. We won’t be going to anybody else for our (hopefully soon!) future baby showers, family photos, anniversaries, etc! You’re a true blessing, Alyssa! Thank you, from the Thackerays!

Absolutely the the best decision we made for our wedding day was to have Lyssalashell Photogaphy capture our day for us! Not only was she amazing during the planning stages, she walked us through everything answering all our questions and to be honest she is the only reason our wedding ran so smoothly! There was so many things that I would have missed or overlooked but she was there to make sure it happened. She captured absolutely everything! I have never liked having my picture taken in fact I can’t remember a single photo of myself ever that I have liked and my husband is very shy and really gets uncomfortable having his picture taken. However, Lyssalashell photography made it so much fun and never once did we feel uncomfortable or nervous with her. To be honest I don’t even know how in the world she got so many amazing shots! I could seriously go on and on about why you should have her capture the special moments in your life, but the only way you will truly see her talent is to meet her and let her do her magic I promise you will not regret it. I can’t thank her enough for amazing memories she captured for us!
