Hello, I'm Alyssa.

Blogger of Cottonwood Shanty and Designer of Shanty Scrolls. Shanty Scrolls was created in the fall of 2016. I personally love the scrolls because they offer a timeless and organic look to any wall.

I am a full time wedding/portrait photographer here in Ohio; Lyssa Ann Portraits. I enjoy photographing couples and individuals as it's a way of creatively making art and memories for others. Graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the spring of 2014, I've been a busy gal ever since.

I married my high school sweetheart, Taylor, who constantly keeps me laughing and makes me the happiest gal ever. We married underneath the gorgeous Wahclella Falls in Portland, Oregon and that was just the beginning of our story. We live in the slow and breathtaking Amish Country of central Ohio. 

Since our wedding, we've taken on countless renovations and projects which we enjoy. You can see more of our renos in the blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by,
