Ever see a picture that just stirs up emotion? One that sparks joy and gives you butterflies? A photo that takes a moment in time and tells a story that no words can describe? That's what Alvida Groom Photography's images are. They're more than just a snapshot. She finds magic in every image she snaps. She took photos of my 3-month-old puppy and my 14yo daughter (a puppy and a teenager!!!) Somehow she created magic in those photos. She got my teen to actually SMILE and look at the camera! She got my puppy to sit still and stare into her lens. Pure professionalism. So many perfect photos that I can't even pick my favorite! I really look forward to working with her again soon. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!
Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
I met Alvida while she was on a photo shoot with another customer. I publicly and loudly asked for her information. The customer she was with highly suggested that I must work with her. I looked her up that evening and she became available for me just a couple of days later. She was a joy to work with. She made me feel extremely comfortable and was very inviting. Her work is incredible.
Alvida photographed my daughter for her senior pictures and I LOVE EVERY picture - I can't narrow them down!! From starting with booking the photo session, to hair and makeup by Anjel (she's terrific!!), to the actual photo session, everything was seamless!! Alvida made my daughter feel like a real model and it shows in the photos. Alvida's eye for light and background really complete the picture. Plus, she's super fun to work with and makes you feel at ease. Thank you, Alvida and Anjel, for memories that will last a lifetime!!

Alvida is such a professional! She met with us first, got to know my daughter and really listened to our suggestions. Prior to the photo shoot she made suggestions, had my daughter send pics of outfits so she could have a sneak peek and provided a guide on what to wear and how to be prepared for the shoot. On the day of the shoot she was extraordinary. She clearly has a passion for photography and my daughter had one of the best days being with Alvida. She is spontaneous and fun, creative and kind. The pictures are high quality and edited with love. I highly recommend using Alvida for all your photography needs.
" Alvida is one of the best photographers I’ve ever met. There are many photographers that have a great understanding of light, shadows and how to use their equipment, but Alvida does all this and captures the emotion of the moment to give each photo that extra special spark. I was completely blown away by the photos she took of my daughter recently. I highly recommend her services."

" Alvida’s creativity is like no other. She sees textures and elements for the perfect shot that others would not. Her use of light, architecture, colors and shapes to supplement each photo is remarkable. As a bonus, her vibrant personality and beautiful spirit take the stress out of your family’s session and really allow you to relax and enjoy the time while she captured these most important moments.

" Super excited to have Alvida coming to Wisconsin to take our son's senior pictures this July. The images she took for our daughter's senior year a few years ago were amazing. Alvida has so many great ideas about locations, wardrobe, etc. Definitely recommend her to anyone interested in having a great senior portrait experience!"

"Alvida is the best photographer ever! She was so loving towards my baby, knew how to make him laugh, and just an all around amazing individual to work with. I've never got my pictures taken professionally like this before, but Alvida knew how to make me feel comfortable and relaxed! I feel like she really takes her time with her people and listens to what they want. Prior to the shoot, we spoke and she had many great suggestions. So many ideas that I did not know which one to go with! Whether it's baby, maternity, senior photos, engagement, or family shoots I would 10/10 recommend her! Very professional and passionate about her work."
