Nebraska Wedding Photographer

hi there.
i'm alyssa.

Alyssa Herold Midwest Wedding and Traveling Photographer

it's my vision, 

that my photography is a reflection of the beauty I feel within.  

that these moments, captivate the poetic human experience we call life. 

if you're looking for a photographer who's laidback, but detailed; will crack a joke and live the moment; who's willing to go off the beaten path and explore new possibilities; who's attentive but knowledgeable; well then, i'm your girl.


things i love.

crisp mountain air.             hiking.                 traveling.       the feeling of hot sun warming your skin.

belly aching laughter.            star gazing on summer nights.     walking barefoot   in spongy grass.

the sound of rain.             reading a good book.          picking fresh vegetables from the garden.

tacos.   a cup of warm tea + honey in the evening.      the rewarding feeling after a tough workout or run.

staying in on friday nights with chinese food + a good movie.   interior design.   learning. 

long hugs.      intellectual, in depth conversations.        love notes.      a bouquet of daisies. 

emotional attraction.       deep breaths.    the somberness of blue hour. 

a cold beer on the patio watching the sunset.   self  growth.   journaling.    

when I'm having so much fun with friends + family and forget to capture photos of us. 

baking chocolate chip cookies.     yoga.    listening to podcasts.   feeling creative.    music that fills the soul.

Profesional photographer in Salt Lake City Utah on Salt Flats

Born +Raised in Lincoln, Nebraska

There was a time about 10 years ago when I decided to ditch Nebraska for Colorado, but as fate would have it, I found my way back and now reside just 15 minutes outside of Lincoln in the country. 

In my free time I love to curl up with a good book, gardening and I love home design.  After receiving an AAS and BS in Dietetics and Nutrition Science, fitness and health remains an active part of my lifestyle.  My fiance and I have been together for nine years and at last getting married this June of 2023.  Together we have two Australian Shepherds named Chief and Maverick, farm cats, chickens and a whole lotta chaos.  We also travel frequently and love to go boating in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri year round.

What should I expect from a session with you?

playful, low key, relaxed and spontaneous! I move quickly on the spot and

will give a guided approach while capturing candid, authentic imagery.

Do you have a studio?

I own Cedar + Sage Studio located in Eagle, NE.  It's a beautiful 1920s historic building 

that offers a lot of warm and earthy character.  With a 12 foot wall of exposed brick, wood floors,

coffee bar and a variety of natural elements - this space provides beautiful natural lighting.  It's also a wonderful location for winter or rainy day sessions, newborn & family, and boudoir.

Cedar + Sage Studio allows other photographers to rent out for sessions.  It also serves as a rental space for events such as baby and bridal showers, graduation and intimate weddings.

Do you travel?

I travel everywhere and love nothing more than a adventurous session outside of my small town. You tell me where and I'll book a flight.  I've shot anywhere from the Rocky Mountains, Black Hills, Salt Flats, Tennessee, Ohio and Texas. 

Where Have You Been 

My work has been published in Nebraska Wedding Day, Shutterup, Cowboys and Indians Magazine and a I've done product photography for brands as large as Wrangler and Kimes Ranch. I've also worked with a variety of boutiques and models, while coordinating styled shoots on location.  You can view my western photography with Modern Western Women.

How would you explain your style?

I am drawn to warm and earthy photography with clean details, because to me, it tells a story.  It's true to those real lie moments.  I love capturing emotion.  While I'll always capture those head facing camera shots you need, you can expect an album full of candid and authentic moments.  

What is your turnaround for photos?

You can expect to view your shoot in less than a week! A full gallery will be delivered within 2-3 weeks and weddings approximately 8-10 weeks. If there should be any further delay, I'll communicate with you.

What makes you different?

I can't express how important it is as a photographer that we communicate with our clients.  That being said, you aren't just a client to me. You're a friend.  A friend I hope to see more of from years to come. I love hearing your stories, learning about you and feeling connected.  Your photographer should be someone you consider a friend, as they'll be there along your side through some pretty amazing moments of your life.



Alyssa is not only an incredible photographer, but also an incredible person! She made my boudoir session unforgettable. I was definitely nervous, but her personality, and her cheering me on, I felt so comfortable. I was able to laugh and have genuine fun during the shoot. The photos were also incredibly beautiful, my husband 100% agrees. She also still answers all of my questions when it comes to how to communicate with photographers (I had some questions about the photographer I used for my wedding; and how to communicate). The fact that she is willing to help me communicate with another photographer, I think is incredible.
10/10 recommend Alyssa for any of your photos you are wanting to get done. You will have fun, receive beautiful pictures, and even make a new friend during your session!
