I'M ALLISON

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. My background in the wedding industry started two years ago in filmmaking, but what is most life giving for me is photography! I love shooting in natural light to create timeless, beautiful images that can be shared for years to come. I'm so thankful for the couples I work with and getting to capture joyful moments from behind my camera!

Ever since I was little, I have always loved having a creative outlet. I grew up spending tons of time drawing, painting and going to art camps. In high school I started a side hustle painting monograms that eventually led to custom watercolors, calligraphy and wedding decor. I knew early on that I loved entrepreneurship and I'm so lucky that it led me to photography!

When I'm not behind my camera, you can probably find me exploring all of the restaurants in Richmond with my friends, spending way too long at Target (not just me right?!), working on watercolors, binge watching HGTV, and finding an excuse to buy all the things in my Madewell online cart.

All Things Home Decor

My dream is to own a house one day and completely remodel it! I love designing spaces and walking into beautiful stores (Anthro obsessed) and being inspired. I got to travel to Magnolia Market last summer and already want to go back!

Mexican Food

My friends make fun of me because Mexican is always my suggestion when we're going out to eat. Hanging out with friends and drinking margs and splitting chips and guac might be my love language.

Summers by the water

Tan lines, sitting in beach chairs at golden hour, boat rides, beach towns - there is nothing better! I went to college by the water and everything that comes with summer just does something for my soul.

beach, pool, lake, river...doesn't matter to me!

RVA

I grew up outside of the city and recently moved back. Not only is the city beautiful and has a ton of charm, but the list of things to do never ends. Richmond is known for it's food and local restaurants, and lucky for me I can walk to so many of them from my apartment!

i love where i live!

MY STORY:

THE REASON WHY

I do what I do

I believe in shooting for legacy. There is nothing sweeter than stepping back and realizing I am creating more than beautiful images, but photos that will be shared with family of all generations.
