If you asked 8 year old me, i've been a photographer since my dad gave me my first polaroid camera and told me I have an "EYE" I never lost that love of snapping away while no one is looking and there's no time to pose.
The moments when you're so full of raw emotion, that you completely forget i'm there. Those are the images that the beauty of true life shows through.
My love for photography comes from my love of connection. To me, (a gift giver love language type) being there for you on your wedding day is the best gift I have. To make sure you not only receive the images, but someone that has your back! Wants you to shine & wants to help in every way possible!
My goal is to capture the day as it naturally unfolds, without someone bossing you around or trying to get their shots.
I'm the first person to say,
"WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?"
(As you can see in the first picture below.)
Because of this, I strive to create a comfortable environment that allows you to act and feel as natural as possible.
I'm just your friend with a camera, no judgements and no pressure.
My style of photography is to capture as much candidly, while still guiding you along the way.
And of course, i've been in your shoes! The most important thing I learned from being in front of the camera is to focus on my love bug and the photos will turn out perfect.
-I love all things cats & my true dream is to own a cat sanctuary one day. That's my retirement goal of course haha
-I absolutely love New Zealand, but i've never been there!
-I get a rush of adrenaline when I go thrifting. Everyone loves a great deal hahaha
Being in love brings out the best in people. In a world often clouded with unnecessary distractions, the one true constant that cuts through all of the noise, is love.
"He's always been shy but for some reason around her he's completely giddy!"
"I never ever would have gone rock climbing if I didn't meet this girl and want to impress."
Love makes you crazy, love makes you better, love makes you whole.
Every single couple has a unique tale of love and trying to tell it is what inspires me most. For future generations, for every anniversary, and for every moment of doubt, you can look at these photos and remember the love.
What the heck is it like with me at your wedding?
COMFORT. I'm here to make you feel at ease and ready to slay the day. My job is to facilitate genuine moments as more of a friend than a robot with a camera.
NINJA. You want to remember the REAL, RAW, AND UNIQUE parts of your day captured effortlessly? I grab those candids before you even realize i'm there.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY! At our pre-wedding hang outs I will make sure to know what shots are MUST HAVES & PLEASE DON'TS. No surprises just great shots.
GUIDANCE. I will always guide you towards the best light and help to remind you of your good sides. :)
"Alison was such a great photographer! I loved her work! She was patience, kind, very funny & made our photoshoot very comfortable! Definitely would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!"
"Allison was such a wonderful photographer to work with! She made me feel really comfortable and captured the most beautiful photos with the nicest edits. Very personable. I highly recommend booking with her!"
"I was given two options of photographers to choose from. One was less expensive, but I liked Allison's style better and was willing to pay the extra price. I was SO glad I did! We clicked as soon as we met and she made me and my husband feel so comfortable."
"Biggest thank you to Allison, really got my bf out of his shell & got beautiful photos in the process!"
