SoCal Styled

styled shoot.jpeg
When: July 9, 2019 
Where: The Colony House - Anaheim, CA

Listen - We’ve been to styled shoots before, and we understand that sometimes, it can feel a little competitive/overwhelming/disconnected. Our vision for Socal Styled is a community orientated environment where you come as you are, connect, create and learn. No pressure, no competition, just a whole lot of fun & new friends!!

We decided to put on this styled shoot because we both had a fire inside our hearts wanting to create!!! We are both so passionate about this community. We wanted to create a space that was open for other creatives to unleash their creative sides with us, where we can all learn from each other & capture content that will translate into their own businesses!

Hiii I’m Alyssa - the face behind the camera!

I’m a full-time wedding & elopement photographer based in sunny California! I’m a girl of many roles - in addition to photographer, I am first and foremost a wife to my incredible husband Riley - we’ve been married for 2 years now. Anddd a dog mom to two pups, Biggie the dachshund & Minnie the chihuahua. Those two are basically our children!

I have a lot of plants, I’m surprisingly really good at keeping them alive. I loveee to travel but also, I’m a total homebody (ya feel me)? I can never say no to pizza or an acai bowl. My favorite thing to do when I’m not working is honestly, sit at home, cuddle up with my little fam & watch Netflix!

This “job” is truly a dream come true. I never knew pursuing my passion for photography would lead me to find this incredible photography community that I am also, oh so passionate about. It brings me so much joy encouraging and supporting other photographers in our community - I cannot WAITTT to hug each & every one of youuuuu!! :)

xo, Alyssa



Hi friends, I’m Nicoleeeee! 

The bubbly blonde behind Nicole Kirshner photography! My hubby & I just got married in November & have a fur child named beau (you will see a lot of him on my insta stories because I’m obsessed with him)

Ice drinks & chipotle are my jam. 

(Gave up my addiction of Diet Coke for ice drinks..... water is boring). 

I’ve been capturing the most epic day in peoples lives for 3 years now but have been photographing for 5 (man does time fly)!!! 

I’m sooooo incredibly passionate about what I do. I got my degree in teaching and although I didn’t go the teaching route, I still believe I get to apply my degree every day by helping other photographers. Any who, I am so glad you are here & I cannot wait to get this party started with you guys! WOOO! It’s going to go down (best believe we will have a dance party & I’ll be getting down FOR SUREEEE) 

xoxoxo Nicole
