Alissa photographed our (very untraditional) wedding day. From start to finish, she was a complete professional and SO much fun to work with! We didn’t want anything that looked like “typical” wedding photos. (Think uncomfortably posed with sappy-looking frosted edges) So for her come with us a cool bar (which was converted from an old water fountain factory) for celebratory drinks, and then over to a tattoo parlor, where my husband got his wedding “band” tattooed, she shared our adventures and truly captured the memories. Not to mention, she made us both look positively badass. Her work speaks for itself. I cannot recommend Alissa enough. Thank you so much for everything!

I needed some photos for a National Magazine. I hired Alissa and it was a great decision! She made me feel comfortable in front of the camera, took her time and the pictures turned out better than I could have hoped. Highly recommend her.

I don’t think that I can say enough good things about Alissa. When we were looking for a wedding photographer we didn't really know what we were doing. She was laid back while maintaining professional demeanor and walked us through a plan for the day and really helped us out a lot. When the day finally did come, she was punctual and flexible. Her pictures turned out fantastic! I am not great in posed positions but she made it fun and relaxing, she was also able to capture the life of our wedding in the candid pictures as well. I think last and most importantly, she was always enthusiastic and excited! When you are on the phone dealing with so many different vendors it’s great to talk to someone who makes you feel like the special event that you are having is special to them also.

We were so lucky to have found Alissa to shoot our wedding. My wife and I are not enthusiastic about being in front of a camera. Alissa made it easy and fun. Before the wedding she met with us to talk about our ideas and expectations, we had very few and were pretty clueless. She was incredibly helpful during this process, and on the day of when we had some spur of the moment specifics she was flexible and accommodating.
When we were shopping around for photographers we noticed that a lot that were either good at capturing moments or staging pictures. Alissa was able to provide both. If you haven't looked through her gallery please take a look. Her talent as a photography crosses the boundary of action and staged in a way will allow you to look back on this and feel like you are experiencing it again. The staged photos are beautiful and the candid shots feel alive.
From the start of the of our search to receiving the final edits Alissa was kind, professional, and easy to communicate with. A photographer is such an important part of your wedding because when its over its her photos that will keep that day that flew by so fast fresh in your memory, and I promise you will not regret using Alissa.

I hired Alissa to shoot my daughter's senior photos and she did such an incredible job! My daughter is very unorthodox in her stylistic choices and Alissa was able to meet her eccentric expectations with ease. We also rented a wolf for the day and she made the whole shoot very comfortable yet exciting! Everyone is amazed at these photos - family and friends say 'thank you!' I have so much love and gratitude for you!!

I love this girl! She is a visionary! She cares about her work, she cares about you and she is here to stir things up! When I worked with her it was a journey, both times. She helped me get to a place where I was thinking about what I wanted to express and she helped me get there. It was healing. It was freeing! I have never felt so comfortable and open in front of a camera. And how she edits is an art in itself. I cant wait to work with Alissa again! To make Magic!

I have worked with Alissa several times throughout the last few years and I must say that each time has been nothing short of amazing. Not only does she take beautiful pictures but she provides insight as well. She goes above and beyond to get the perfect shot. She has a great turn around time and I have always been blown away by her edits. It is a joy every time I work with her and I know that my photo shoot will be everything I want and need whenever I work with her.

I'm in the apartment rental business and on several occasions I have needed professional quality photos for advertising and promotional purposes. Fortunately for me, Alissa Ohashi Photography has consistently provided top-quality and unique photos that truly highlight my rental properties and really make them "POP" in my advertisements!! Many potential residents have mentioned to me that the eye-catching photos are what motivated them to call and schedule a viewing.
I find Alissa a delight to work with and she has always been reliable, easy to communicate with, creative, and quick to deliver a large portfolio of photos for my review. Also, I really appreciate how Alissa makes it super easy to view, download, transfer, and store photos on her website. This is extremely convenient.
I look forward to working with Alissa on future apartment photo shoots and would definitely recommend her to friends, family, and fellow business owners. Keep up the good work Alissa!
