Meet the Photographer

NWI lifestyle Photographer capturing the in-between moments

Hey Guys! Welcome, I am so glad you're here.

I am Alyssa Evelyn Photography!

I am a Northwest Indiana lifestyle photographer capturing love stories & families. I love to involve nature in my shoots every chance I get so lets run around a field together. If it involves grassy fields, plants or the beach I am in! While I focus on couples, small families & maternity, I love capturing everything in-between. Having a cohesive portfolio is very important to my brand, so I focus on all things neutral, earth-tone, & boho. I'm a sucker for beige, brown and black as well as pops of rust, yellows & greens.


I live in NWI with my little family. I am happily married to my husband Tyler, who I have been with for over seven years. We have two sweet little boys, Alarik Alexander & Kierin Kole. We adore being boy parents. I am also a fur mama to two cats named Oliver & Cleo.

I graduated college in 2018 at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago and have my BFA in Fashion Design. Photography came into my life after becoming a mother. I am completely self taught but constantly taking the opportunity to learn more!

things I love
  • Thrifting
  • Home Décor
  • Reality TV
  • Live Music
  • House Plants
  • Wine
  • Neutrals
  • The Beach
  • Tattoos

In my free time I love to thrift, DIY home décor and furniture, binge watch reality tv, go to live concerts and spend time with my family at home or at the beach. 

Meet my assistant, Tyler.

You will see Tyler from time to time. We are a husband wife duo for weddings and occasionally seen at sessions.

Besides photography, Tyler is a huge PC gamer. He actually really wants to develop his own game. He has skills in coding, building computers, and overall is extremely well at solving problems.

He is a father to our two boys, which are his pride and joy. He loves playing outdoors with our boys, especially basketball.

I cannot express how lucky I am to have him by my side for weddings and could not imagine anyone else being by my side.

Trust me, I know how much you want to hold on to every second

Because I am a mom & wife too.

You read that right. I am a momma too! I know exactly how important it is to capture our little ones. Best part is I also know how tough pictures can be on them too, so those in-between moments are the best. Honestly they always end up being my favorites, them just being them.
