ANN ARBOR + DETROIT + ELSEWHERE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi, I’m Alison!
I approach wedding photography from a storytelling perspective and aim to communicate how it might feel to be alive in the very second the photograph captures. My challenge is to document the dynamics and relationships that bind you with all the people who will help to create your wedding day. Photographing beauty is wonderful so I’ll definitely be making art out of your dress and flowers and personal touches, but most of all, I adore photographing love and emotion in all their various forms. The result is a classic collection of art+stories; a refined blend of sweetness, intimacy, authenticity, humor and fun…and you just have to show up, bring your love and be you.
My ideal clients? You want documentation of what your wedding day looks like, but also what it feels like and you’re more interested in authentic interactions than stiff poses. You’re invested in having extremely awesome wedding photos and are excited to be a part of making that happen! We’ll chase the light and play with the way it falls on you … my work is to find your unique moments that capture the true you, together, individually and with your people (and lots of true thems, as well) to create genuine, emotionally-charged photos and a true documentation of your day.
I’m mama to two fiery girls, wife to a badass who started medical school at 35 and, owner of Mr. Jenkins who meows so much but who lovingly puts up with being harassed by small children. I grew up in Michigan, lived in California for 15 years, and moved to Ann Arbor 5 years ago. I’ve been blessed to shoot from Switzerland to Tulum, love to travel and am available for worldwide celebrations! When I’m not shooting, I can be found having dance parties in the kitchen, listening to Pink Floyd and scheming how to keep groundhogs from eating my garden.
Love is love. <3 If you like what you see and read here, I want to hear from you!
