Wedding photography that's all about you.
alyson levy PHOTOGRAPHY specializes in creating gorgeous images that tell your unique love story. I rely on years of experience and an artist's eye to capture crucial moments without drawing focus, creating heirloom quality photographs that sparkle with romance, humor, and emotion.
Over a decade of wedding photography experience helps me understand when to laugh and joke around with my couples, when to get down to business to keep things on schedule, and how to do both at the same time. I pride myself on being a fun, professional and unobtrusive wedding photographer, letting my excitement for telling their love story bring out the best in the couples I work with. Based in beautiful Portland, Oregon, I love to showcase the magic of the Pacific Northwest in my images.

Alyson goes above and beyond to make your day special
I’m so glad that we hired Alyson for our wedding. Where do I begin? First of all, Alyson is the perfect balance of professional (always on time, does quality work) and approachable (laid back, flexible, super friendly). Plus her prices are reasonable for what you get. I knew she would be great to work with when we told her that instead of engagement photos we wanted professional photos of my husband in full armor for his fencing club, and she was totally cool with doing that. We talked to another wedding photographer before Alyson who refused.
My husband and I don’t have a lot of experience with weddings and we were so glad that Alyson guided us through the process so we knew what to expect. We’d be lost without her. She and her assistant really went above and beyond, especially on our wedding day. We had a small wedding so we didn’t hire a day-of planner (big mistake) and Alyson and her assistant stepped up big time. My bridesmaid had a last-minute work emergency and couldn’t help me get ready. Alyson and her assistant helped me get dressed and out the door. I’m eternally grateful! Alyson’s assistant also helped out with music, fixed my hair, plus staged some of my favorite silly photos of the day.
When it was time to review photos I think they took like 600+ throughout the day. Alyson composed a lovely album for us. We ended up splurging on the album because there were so many photos that we loved and we couldn’t decide. Alyson also did a leather cover with a custom symbol on the front. It was so awesome and I’m excited to share this album with our family.
One thing I didn’t consider when I hired a photographer is that you are not just hiring someone for the big day, you are hiring someone for several months (engagement photos, wedding album, edits, etc.) I think we were working with Alyson for about 9 months. You want to hire someone you will enjoy working with over an extended period of time. Alyson is that person. She is responsive, extremely helpful, and a pleasure to work with.Sent on 07/29/2020

Alyson was so professional and wonderful to work with from start to finish. She is kind, thoughtful, prompt, reliable, and up for anything (including our windy, freezing cold engagement shoot on the sand dunes). I really love how timeless her work is, nothing too trendy with heavy filters and such, just great quality photos. Thank you Alyson!Sent on 08/28/2020

Easy to work with and an excellent photographer
My partner and I decided to elope without much time to plan. I was familiar with Alyson's work from friends who had used her services. Luckily for me, she was available! It was unexpectedly snowing but she was able to find us a lovely outdoor spot to exchange our vows and captured the moment perfectly.Sent on 07/26/2020
There was some drama over family members that had not been able to make it and Alyson was able to create beautiful individualized albums for them that downplayed the family that had been able to come, saving me the wrath of my parents.

Alyson Levy has photographed several weddings at Newell Pioneer Village. She works well with us, the venue, and serves our Brides and Grooms in the manner they deserve on this special day. Her photography is beautiful.
Alyson Levy is a wonderful artist. We watched in awe as she happily conducted the bride, groom, wedding party, family and around 200 guests for group photos at a gorgeous wedding where we performed last summer. The newly married couple and all of their guests had such a good time and were obviously very much at ease with Alyson, due to the light hearted yet professional way she handled everything. Alyson has a gift for capturing expression and emotion which so beautifully brings out the best in people. We highly recommend Alyson Levy!
I worked with Alyson a couple of months ago at the wedding of Matt & Kati Merriman at Bridal Veil Lakes and she was a true professional. I watched from behind the scenes as a DJ as she captured the ceremony without distracting anyone from the natural beauty of the setting. I was doubly impressed when I saw the final edits on her blog. The pictures perfectly captured what a beautiful couple they were and even managed to get some great shots of the dance floor which I posted to my own blog. I loved the polished yet simple look of Alyson's website which aptly reflects her style and professionalism.
