Meet Alyssa

I’m so happy you have taken the time to explore my site and have landed here. I am Alyssa Smirnov, the owner of Smirnova Photography. I would describe myself as a family oriented adventurer with a sweet tooth and a knack for baking! I started as an occupational therapist and get so much joy working with kids and serving others. I come from a big family big family and my love for travel sparked a deeper love of photography that allows me to capture those must-have moments! When I’m not capturing others’ most precious moments I’m off creating my own with my sweet husband. I’d love to get to know you and have the opportunity to make memories together.

Through my photographs, I strive to capture emotions and tell each client's story. I love the variety of my photography and getting to meet people and learn what is meaningful to them. My goal for every client is to make sure they have a creative and unique experience. I'd love to hear your story and work with you to create beautiful memories.

After processing, you will be able to download the digital images straight to your computer. This also allows you to easily share your photos with friends and families. I shoot all photos in Large RAW format to ensure the highest quality photos. Clients will receive hand-selected retouched images in JPEG format.


I like to take a natural approach to my editing so that I can accurately represent things the way they appear in real life with some enhancement. To make sure you are the center of focus, I may remove distracting elements such as acne, stray hairs, light switches, etc. If you have a specific look you like, I can work with you to achieve this.


Since the east coast states are fairly close together, I have no problem driving or traveling to your destination. For travel that requires airfare, the client is responsible for making arrangements. I am flexible and can work with you to make things easier.


I love props and believe they can help tell a story to your photographs. I am also comfortable photographing in new locations. If you're unsure of a location, I'm willing to do some research and provide options for you to choose from. Please be aware of permits or photography fees for certain locations.


I have many options for wedding and session albums varying in size and style. To make this process simpler, after your pictures have been delivered. You may select favorites that you would like to be included in the album. I hand design all the layouts and specifically place the images to flow together. I will then send the album for your proofing before it is printed.


Prints are a great way to display your favorite images around your home or share with friends and family. I have the most popular sizes that you can order directly from my photo delivery system and am also able to offer custom sizes or clusters. All prints are lab quality to make sure your pictures are accurately and best portrayed.
