Fine art wedding photography that combines your love of beautiful artistry and natural storytelling.

I help joy-filled couples create a plan for their wedding photography that allows them to relax and enjoy their day while getting gorgeous, timeless images to treasure for a lifetime.

Your wedding day is about more than the flowers and the shoes you chose. It's about celebrating the start of a new family, a union that will last for a lifetime, and a legacy that will carry on for generations. My fine art wedding photography collections are curated to your exact needs for your event.

Creating effortless

Always anticipating

Authentic Moments

"I couldn't have imagined a better experience."

"It would not have been the same without Alison"

Sarah & Alan Michael

"From the moment I began communicating with Alison, she went above and beyond as a vendor! She took time to get to know me and my now husband’s story, and by the time we had our wedding, I felt like we were friends! Alison is literally amazing! Her photography is absolutely beautiful, and I will cherish the photos she took forever. Not only is she professional and amazing at her work, she is kind, friendly, and more than willing to make you feel comfortable in any way! I am so thankful I chose her to photograph our wedding."

What to expect

Every time you work with me

one

Film & Digital Images

I'm a hybrid wedding photographer, meaning I shoot with both a digital camera and a film camera. I love shooting film because it creates a fine art look that brings out amazing skin tones and colors. I shoot film throughout the day alongside my digital camera when natural light is available, then I match my digital images to my film photos. This is also one of the many ways you have a backup of your images!

two

Editorial Posing Direction & Candid Moments

On the wedding day, I will capture both the candid, heartfelt moments as well as editorial-style poses that look straight out of Vogue. Your final gallery will include a combination of photojournalistic candid images and artfully curated portraits and details.

three

Engagement & Bridal Session Planning Resources

I love getting to work with my couples before the wedding day during an engagement session or bridal session! I offer detailed planning guides for both sessions, complete with checklists, location ideas, outfit advice, and so much more.

Heirloom Albums & Prints

In this digital age, fewer people are printing their photos. The last thing I want is for your photos to stay hidden away on some hard drive that will become obsolete ten years from now (remember when everyone used to deliver photos on CDs?!). Because I believe printing your images is the best way to protect and enjoy them, each wedding collection includes a private online gallery which is equipped with powerful album-design software and a store connected to my professional print lab. I love helping my couples design the heirloom wedding album of their dreams and provide affordable options to print their photos.

five

Custom Vision Board & Styling Curation

I love helping my couples create a custom design board for their wedding to help guide the planning process. This helps you effectively communicate your vision with your vendors and ensure every element is cohesive, allowing you to plan a stunning, magazine-worthy wedding! Additionally, this design board will allow me to curate a custom styling kit for your wedding. We will work together to determine what elements should be included to create the detail photos of your dreams! Learn more here.

Timeline Creation & Planning Guidance

As soon as we're officially booked, you'll receive a link to both my Wedding Experience Guide and my Custom Timeline Creator. I want to equip you with all my best advice from the very beginning. Additionally, the Custom Timeline Creator will automatically generate a sample timeline for you based on your specific wedding date!

Consistent, Timeless Editing

Film is known for dreamy, creamy skin tones, soft colors, and a look that is timeless. I want you to love your photos just as much 50 years from now as you do the day your gallery is delivered! After your wedding day is over, the rolls of film I shot during the day will be sent off to my incredible film lab in California. They will develop the film and scan it, sending me the final digital images. Then, I'll match the digital images I took throughout the wedding day to the film scans, ensuring everything is a seamless match.

eight

Safe Backups

We all know technology is never 100% reliable, and the last thing you want to worry about is that something will happen to all your wedding photos. That's why I have several systems in place to backup your images. Film images are also shot on digital, so if the film is lost in the mail or gets damaged, there's a digital backup. On my digital camera, I have two card slots, meaning I can automatically backup every image to two memory cards at once in case something happens. Finally, I immediately backup your images to my hard drive and the cloud as soon as I get home from the wedding day.

nine

Quick Turnaround & Private Online Gallery

I will send along some sneak peeks shortly after the wedding day so you don't have to wait until your full gallery is ready to see some photos! Your final photos will be delivered 6-8 weeks after your wedding day via an online gallery where you can easily download, share, and order prints of your images.

"By far our favorite vendor from the entire day."

"Alison was fantastic. She truly captured our emotions in each picture - we have gotten so many compliments on how happy we look in our photos. Not only was she a joy to work with - seriously one of the nicest people we worked with - but she is incredibly talented. I highly recommend working with her and hope we can again soon. By far our favorite vendor from the entire day."

What collections do you offer?

Because every wedding is unique, I create a custom quote for you based on your needs, the location, and number of guests. Contact me for your custom quote!

frequently asked questions:

There's nothing like the way colors and light look on old-school film, and that's why I still shoot it! I match my digital images to the colors in my film scans.

To make it official, I'll need a signed agreement and 30% of the invoice total as a nonrefundable retainer (50% for destination weddings as I will be booking my flights & lodging right away).

How long does it take to get my images back?

You'll receive your full gallery within 6-8 weeks of your wedding date or 3 weeks for portrait sessions.
