Hi there, my name is Alissa Reed!

I’m a Cedar Falls local with a love for all things creative!

I do life with my husband Mike, our daughter Brinlee and our pup Mila. When we’re not working, you’ll find us outside or snuggled up to a movie.

I started up Honey Lens Photography in July of 2021 while working full-time for a non-profit, fast forward to 2024, and I am doing this photo thing full-time!

Fun facts about me!

  • I LOVE and survive off coffee
  • My favorite food group is carbs
  • I own an absurd amount of tumblers (it may be an obsession...)
  • BIG fan of Gilmore Girls
  • I worked as a HR professional for seven years.

Honey-Lens went above and beyond for us! We absolutely love our photos and were so pleased with the turnaround time! Alissa is very friendly, professional and made our session a lot of fun!

Alissa has taken our photos for the past couple of years and I don't think I could love them anymore than I do right now. She's always coming up with cool ways to stage us since we are just a family of 3. She knows the most perfect spots around town. And can always capture that golden hour just right! I highly recommend her for your photography needs!

Alissa did an amazing job taking our wedding and reception photos. She was a lot of fun to work with and captured some great moments. I highly recommend her for wedding photography.
