Alyssa Michel is a southern CT based photographer who graduated from Hallmark Institute of Photography in 2016. She loves taking photographs of families, couples and children! Alyssa loves capturing the real moments during a photo session, she loves making her clients feel comfortable and relaxed. She wants every session to be one to remember and for the photos to make memories that will last.
The thing I love most being a photographer is making people happy. Whether we're at the photoshoot and we're laughing and having a good time or it's after and the client has their photos and I get that text/email saying how much they are in love with their photos. I love knowing that my clients are happy and satisfied.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Since graduating I have done mostly engagement, portrait sessions and special events. Every session is different. I make sure I contact each client directly beforehand and get a feel for what the session is going to be like and what they're looking for. I try to always go the extra mile for my clients whether it's bringing a simple prop they may have forgotten or simply thinking of the location that may relate to them in an important way.
