Allie :)

the photograhper

Hiiiii guys. I am allie!!!! I live for all things happy and deep. I live for dance parties, booking trips to see my besties, and eating amazing food. I believe photos are beautiful time capsules of remembrance, and I loveeeeee capturing real authentic moments. I am very fascinated with people's stories, and I have a lot of hope for redemption of hearts + change. I have a little obsession with chickfila’s ice cream and large ice waters with lemon. my happy place is hanging with my friends eating thai food or sushi.

I believe my purpose in life is to show the beauty + fight for people's hearts and stories. I believe marriage is sacred and beautiful, but I know it is hard. I want my business to be more than just pretty pictures, so I want each of my couples to be more prepared and excited to enter into marriage after booking with me.

my photo story

I started taking pictures of couples in 2015. I had many friends that were engaged so I would take them to a pretty field or a downtown and shoot away. After that year, I worked at a church, lived overseas, and then worked in the corporate world. In 2018, I knew I should really pursue photography, but at the same time I started to pursue my masters. So In 2019, I packed my bags and moved to Chicago. 

In August of 2020, I got asked by a friend to second shoot a wedding with her. I came home and had three couples reach out to me about shooting their wedding in 2021. My business started to grow very sweetly from there. :) I have discovered how much I LOVE weddings and couples!! It has been the sweetest gift to walk into.
