Weddings + Love Stories

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true. Nothing that I wouldn’t do. Go to the ends of the earth for you, to make you feel my love.


You found your soulmate and you’re getting married

That’s pretty freakin’ sweet if you ask me.

but Let me be real for a second -

wedding photography is a BIG-MF-DEAL

These are the photos you’ll gush over with your Mom over a glass of wine in a few years looking back on how beautiful the day was. The photos you can bust out when things get rough with your honey to remember how far you’ve come together. They’re the photos your children will gather around to look at, sprawled out on the living room floor on Sunday afternoon, and displayed in a silver frame on your great-granddaughter's bookshelf, decades from now.
—-
After all the food is eaten and the last dance has been danced, your photos are the only tangible thing that you'll walk away from your wedding day. As memories fade (and they will!), your photographs will keep them vivid and alive.

All of this is in the back of my mind at every single wedding I photograph. It’s why I do what I do. It doesn’t matter to me whether you want to get married at a restaurant with your closest friends, in your aunt’s backyard with your big Italian family, at a music festival around a campfire, or wearing potato sacks at the make-shift alter in the basement of a divebar eating pizza (hey, why not?). I care about you, I care about your story, and I care about capturing it authentically.

 
 

Hi, I’m Allie

I’m a Wedding + Elopement Photographer based in Boston, MA. I’m a firm believer that your wedding should be a unique reflection of your love, and I love when my couples do things their own way.

Whether it’s a good party or an intimate time, I won’t let your day to be about smiling for a camera, because it’s going to be so much more than that.

Nothing can prepare you for the wild time that is your wedding, and tbh you won’t remember it all. That’s where I come in. 

 

Here’s how I roll —

 

01.

New Hampshire wedding

I want to tell your story the way it really happened.

My goal is to capture every moment the way it unfolds in a photojournalistic and unobtrusive way to help you to remember the day as it really happened. No overly staged moments, or awkward, posed, over-the-top-ness - just you and all the raw beauty, emotion and realness of your day. With me you can rest assured knowing that your pictures will look true to your memories.

 

02.

I’m about connection.

Me + you + your person + your weirdness + your love + your family + your friends + well, you get the picture. If you’re looking for a photographer who will just show up, go through the motions, send you some files and peace out - it ain’t me, babe. And that’s ok! I don’t want to be some rando that just passes through with a camera -I want you to feel comfortable around me, to trust me, and to let yourself feel vulnerable in front of me.

 

03.

I want to give you the best experience possible, not just the prettiest photos.

Before your wedding day, I will be there to help with timelines, vendor recommendations and be a sounding board for all your many ideas. On your wedding day, your friends are my friends and your family is my family. I’ll be there to keep you calm, help out, hold things, give Mom a shoulder to cry on, laugh at all your Dad’s jokes, and at the end of the night you’ll find me breaking it down (very badly) on the dance floor.

 
 

let’s talk money

Packages & Pricing

 

“Make friends first. Make sales second. Make love third. In no particular order.”

— MICHAEL SCOTT


Ok so we’re here at the awkward part of every conversation, money. Don’t you wish $$$ grew on trees? (SAME, except houseplants.) Budgets can be rough in wedding planning and in life, but it’s not every day you get married. SO, if you connect with me and my photography is important to you, I want to get on the same page. Because at the end of the day, I’m not just showing up for your wedding. I’m showing up for YOU.

All my collections are customized to fit your needs and budget, and come with professionally edited hi-res images delivered via a personalized online gallery that can be shared with family and friends. I never use watermarks and you are free to download and print your photos as much as you like.

Congrats to these two goofballs on their wedding day! It was so great to be back at the Emerson Inn; the rain held off all day and it was absolutely perfect 🤗🥰☺️

Hope & Chris

“Allie is the most amazing photographer! She is professional, kind, funny, and very flexible - she has such a great eye for what pictures will look best! I referred her to one friend already for wedding photos and they loved her as well. Any time in the future I need professional photos - I will only use Allie! My husband and I are beyond happy with our engagement and wedding photos! I 100% recommend Allie for all types of professional photos!”

Last year’s Memorial Day weekend memories 🥰 better late than never! #mdwwedding .

Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

Do you travel? Where are you located?

 

Yes! Currently based in Boston but I love traveling. Whether it’s up and down the east coast or across the ocean, let’s chat about a customized package that covers everything you need.

I also offer discounted travel fees for weddings and elopements in NYC, LA, & Burlington, VT.


 

How do we book you?

 

The booking process is simple (and digital - save the trees!) Once you inquire, we’ll talk about what you want out of your package for your budget and I’ll set your up in my client management system.

I require a signed contract and a $1000 non-refundable retainer to officially reserve your date. The final balance is due 30 days before your wedding. I take cash, venmo, or credit card (get those points for your honeymoon right?)


 

How many images do we get and when do we get them?

 

Loaded question but here’s the deal - the limit does not exist. I carefully select and edit all the photos that you’ll need to relive your story - every detail, candid, and event - I don’t hold back!

You can expect about 70-100 photos per hour but how many photos you get varies from wedding to wedding and depends on how many hours of coverage, if you have a 2nd photographer, and how big your wedding is.

You’ll receive a link to your online gallery to download, share, and print your photos within 4-6 weeks after your wedding.


 

Do you offer any albums or products?

 

Absolutely! I’m “old school” and believe you should 100%, without a doubt, print your photos in some type of format (This is the hill I will die on). I offer tons of different products from high-end printers through your gallery. If you’re interested in Heirloom Albums (archival, museum-quality that will literally last for generations) check out my Albums page.
