THE EXPERIENCE

BOOK
WITH
ME

What goes into creating images that are honest and deeply moving -- the ones that truly do your story justice? 

The best way to do this is by knowing you. We’ll build a friendship through Facetime calls, chats over coffee and more. I’ll send you questionnaires and check-ins to learn more about you and create an engagement session experience that is perfectly curated to your relationship. I’ll be there to listen to you geek out about wedding details and to send you some Starbucks when you’re stressing. I’ll meet with you to tour your venue and plan your wedding timeline. On your wedding day, I’ll be intentional about building relationships with your friends and family. 

I’ll be paying close attention to each and every moment as it unfolds, capturing it for you to look back on for a lifetime.

Having photos taken can be such a vulnerable experience. I think we all want someone who just “gets us” and can do our story justice. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want someone there who you deeply trust. In a perfect world, we’d all have a good friend who is also a talented photographer…

I want you to know that you will have that in working with me. I promise that we will build a friendship that will last far beyond your wedding day.

CORE VALUES

marriage

community

rest

intentionality

diligence

Being married to the love of my life is one of the greatest privileges. Marriage is so valuable to me -- getting to see two people joined together for all time is an incredible thing to witness, and I want to support your relationship every step of the way. I promise to encourage you to invest in your marriage more than you invest in your wedding day

My life is centered around doing life with others. On any given day, you'll probably find me chatting with a good friend over coffee, planning our next family dinner, or sitting around a bonfire with the sounds of laughter and friendship filling the night air. I can't wait to build a friendship with you and become a part of each other's community.

If you spend any time with me, you'll quickly learn that I am type-A. I love to accomplish things, and a completed to-do list is one of my favorite feelings. This translates into how I approach my business -- that means prompt communication, quick turn around times for photos, attention to detail, and me staying on top of things so you don't have to! 

As much as I enjoy small talk, my heart really lies with deep and meaningful conversation. I love getting to know people and pouring into their lives. This means I'll take the time to learn your story so I can capture it in a way that tells who you truly are, together. 

This one doesn't come naturally to me, but that's probably why it's one of my favorites. Over the last few years I've really learned the value of slowing down and taking time to enjoy things that are truly restful. This perspective allows me to step back during the busy-ness of a wedding day and be an observer and document each moment. It also means I'll help you build time into your wedding timeline so you can pause and soak in the day.

Going into planning our wedding, I knew photography was the #1 thing that I wanted to invest in. Capturing all of the memories from our special day was so important to me, and I wanted a photographer who could easily provide the high-level service I was looking for. Let me just say that for both the engagement and the wedding shoot, Allie went above and beyond any of my expectations. She was extremely professional, personable, and communicative. Planning a wedding is stressful in and of itself, but planning a wedding during a pandemic is insanely hard. Allie helped in every way that she could. From providing additional resources along every step of the way, to quickly responding to my emails every time our plans change, Allie was so beyond amazing! I would 10/10 recommend her services to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!!

"Allie went above and beyond any of my expectations"

Can we see an example of a full wedding gallery?

Absolutely! I'd be happy to show you! Just shoot me an email and I'll send you over a few to look at!

For wedding galleries, you'll receive sneak peeks within 48 hours. Your full gallery is guaranteed to be delivered in 4 weeks, but typically my turnaround time is much faster!

For engagement sessions, you'll receive sneak peeks within 48 hours and your full gallery within 2 weeks!

When will we receive our images?

How many images will we get?

The short answer is all of the good ones! The amount of images I deliver varies based on how the day plays out, as well as how long I am with you! I give you every shot that isn't a duplicate, blurry, you blinking, etc.!  

Do you offer prints?

Each package includes a delivery day gift which includes a set of prints to get you started! You can purchase prints through me, or from your favorite place. I'm happy to recommend some great options too! 

What happens if something prevents you from being at our wedding?

If 2020 taught us anything, it's to expect the unexpected. If I am unable to attend due to illness/emergency/etc. the second shooter for your day will take over for me. I will still handle all communication and edit your images to reflect my style!

How do I decide how much coverage I need?

Each wedding is unique, so I like to talk about this during our consult call! 

What if we have to cancel or reschedule our wedding?

I will work closely with you to figure out the best back up plan possible! I will do everything in my power to be there for your new date too! 

Do you have insurance and back-up gear?

Yes and yes! I'm happy to provide proof of insurance for your venue if they require it! I also always carry a set of backup gear just in case! 

Can we share our images online?

Yes you can! I don't watermark my images because I want you to be able to enjoy and share them as much as possible! I just ask that you don't add filters or crop them, and that you tag me when you post to social media!
