“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Documenting Adventurous Love Stories

You and your sweetheart are preparing to celebrate an amazing moment - when you vow to share your lives together. Your relationship is one of a kind, full of sunrises and heartbeats, happy tears, road trips, stories that still make you laugh, favorite songs, and knowing a million little things about each other. Those details deserve to be captured. Your story isn't cookie-cutter: why should your wedding photography experience be?

I want to be there to document every step of the way for you. Tell me about your favorite flowers, and why you chose them for your bouquet. How your grandfather gave you that pocket watch to wear on your wedding day. Tell me about your dog (who will be the cutest ring bearer this world has ever seen.) How you are wearing your mother's veil, and how your sister will cry when you walk down the aisle. Let's find a beautiful location - in a national park, on a mountain, by a lake, on your favorite beach - and create photographs that show not only the beauty of your elopement destination, but the genuine love that beams out of your smiles like sunshine. Share your wedding dreams with me, and let's make it happen together.

Whether you plan to elope with just the two of you, or celebrate with two hundred of your closest friends and family, you want to have someone there who can capture the genuine emotions and real, candid moments from every part of the day. Send me a quick message and let's chat about your wedding photography possibilities.

"Allie is more than just an incredibly talented and professional photographer. She was able to anticipate so many of our needs
and was there as an unexpected yet much needed
wedding planner, liaison, consultant, and now friend." - Alli & Angela

Meet Allie

Hi there! I am a professional photographer based in New London, Connecticut. I serve all of New England, and am available for destination weddings and elopements as well. My style is warm, authentic, and candid. I employ a hybrid photographic style of both digital photography and traditional 35mm film to capture all of life's adventures.

I love museums, traveling, cats, and teaching photography to young artists. You can usually find me editing photos, listening to Lord Huron, drinking a cortado, and saying hi to every dog that walks past. One of the dreams that I'm currently working on is my goal to photograph all of the national parks in the US. (14 down, 48 to go!)

I am a member of PPA, Wandering Weddings, Offbeat Bride, LooksLikeFilm Pro, and Young Professionals of Eastern Connecticut.

"Allie was a complete pro and just a wonderful person to spend a photoshoot with. She gave my fiancé and I great directions and made us feel so comfortable. Our engagement photos turned out absolutely beautifully, the composition and lighting of the shots were truly stunning. We cannot recommend Allie highly enough!" - Stephanie & Ludovic
