Read what real clients are saying about Allie Dearie Photography!

Alli & Angela

"My wife and I were the lucky winners of an engagement shoot with Allie last year. At the time we had no idea that we would be working with the woman who would later go on to capture our CA elopement in the Redwoods and our big family reception back in Boston. In short, 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. She more than delivered on all three of these monumental occasions in our lives in a timely manner that produced quality photos that far surpassed our highest expectations. I can't wait to work with Allie again and recommend her as a person, professional, and fantastic photographer. Thank you!!!" 

Megan & Evan

"Thank you, Allie!! You totally captured the joy, love and beauty of our magical day. Phenomenal photos!"

Cassidy & Hannah

"Ahhhhhh we love them so much! Thank you, thank you, thank you!" 

Julie & David

"Extremely flexible and accommodating! Allie is friendly, calming, and professional with great experience. The best part is she will work with you to go where you want to go whether it's New London, CT or Washington, DC or Santa Barbara, CA or Iceland! She does elopements, engagements, the classic wedding day, and more and can give great advice on helping you plan it all. Not a surprise she is recognized in several publications! We hired her for our elopement picnic celebration and couldn't have been happier. Book her now before someone else does!"

Ellene & Peter

"Allie has an incredible eye and takes very creative shots that perfectly capture the moment. She is extremely professional, prompt, friendly, and flexible. We received stunning photos of our small civil wedding ceremony with very fast turnaround time and they more exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend her work!"

"Allie is a consummate professional and an incredibly talented photographer! We worked with her for our engagement photos. I'm typically pretty awkward and uncomfortable during photo shoots, but she made us feel SO at ease and we absolutely love the finished album. Thanks Allie!"

Meghan & Mike

"My fiancee and I met with Allie to discuss ideas for our engagement photos. She was extremely accommodating, and was excited when we told her we wanted our golden retriever to be involved! Ultimately, the photos came out incredible, and the day spent taking them was very relaxed and fun thanks to Allie.

Allie is one of the kindest people and she strives to make you feel completely comfortable. She went above and beyond to ensure that our sweet and excited pup was included. Her work speaks for itself and I would recommend her one hundred times over."

"Allie was very professional, and came to our engagement shoot with a plan. She did a great job of directing us and making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. All of our pictures were beautiful, and she got them back to us very quickly. We look forward to continuing to work with her!"

Liza & Ashley

"I couldn’t recommend Allie Dearie more! She photographed my wedding and to say she did a fantastic job is a drastic understatement. She was so knowledgeable about the types of photos she took, she knew how to get the right poses and make you instantly feel at ease. Not only did she get great photos, she got so many! There was a point in wedding where my wife and I went to look at our dessert table and there was no one around and no sooner were we there than we see a flash and Allie was there capturing every perfect moment! She is super personable and very organized and professional as well. She got every kind of picture we wanted and the style of photos produced were perfect. Allie is also very quick with her turnaround with pictures. We got the “sneak peaks” of our photos 3 DAYS after the wedding! She answered every question we had from the beginning and until the very end. Everyone who was part of the wedding and who attended had nothing but amazing things to say about her and I couldn’t agree more. I will tell everyone I know and everyone I don’t know who is looking for a photographer to use Allie! She is an awesome photographer and an even better person! Thank you so much Allie for capturing our day so perfectly!"

"Allie has been one of the most AMAZING photographers to work with. After going through a rough year I messaged her about having a feel good photography session. We explored the woods, walked through fields and played in the local river. I have never felt more beautiful in photos than the ones Allie has taken of me. If you want a photographer who is always down for an adventure, who has an amazing sense of humor, who will pay attention to every detail of your shoot, and who will truly and deeply care about you during the process, then look no further than Allie Dearie Photography!"

"I would recommend Allie to anyone! Our original wedding plans out of state had to be changed drastically because of the coronavirus pandemic. With only a few days notice, Allie was gracious enough to capture beautiful memories from our small local ceremony. She is such a lovely person to work with - very professional, yet personable and fun. We are so grateful that she could be a part of our big day!"

If you stumble upon Allie Dearie Photography - as I was so fortunately able to do so - you will be incredibly happy. She is always down for an adventure!"

Theodora and Family

"I hired Allie Dearie to photograph my parent's surprise 50th wedding anniversary party. Allie did a great job in capturing this very memorable day and was a pleasure to work with. I asked if she could also recommend a videographer for the day and she provided several names. I was very happy with Allie's recommendations and also found an excellent videographer. Allie is very professional, kind and courteous. She stays in the background unless the customer wants something specific. I was too busy running around, to take pictures so hiring Allie was an excellent investment. She captured all the special moments throughout the day from the decor to the guests and my parent's surprised expression when they realized the celebration was for them."
