Your wedding is going to be the best day ever and it’s such an honor to capture my couples on the first day of their marriage. I remember being completely overwhelmed after I got engaged, but luckily for you, that’s where I come in! My number one goal as a wedding photographer is to make my couples’ wedding day as stress-free as possible. And the way to make that happen is through careful planning and a thorough timeline, which is exactly what I’m here to help you with!

...right behind marrying your best friend. After you leave your reception to start your new lives together, the one tangible item you have to remember your wedding day is your photos. When I think back to my own wedding photos, I can see the moments and relive them over and over again every time I see them on my walls, on my phone and in my wedding album.
To me, that is priceless! From the beginning of your wedding day when you step into your dress, to the last dance with all of your friends and family surrounding you with love, photography will be a huge part of the entire experience. You and your fiance deserve an experience that is fun, natural and full of joy-filled moments.
The best way to get joy-filled, natural images is by having complete trust in your photographer. For me, this is the most critical part of my job and I’m able to make my clients comfortable by creating a relationship with my couples. Most brides book their photographer 9-12 months before their wedding day, which is why it’s so important to have a great relationship! Another important part of the AEP wedding experience is careful planning.
I want every one of my couples to have a stress-free wedding day because they deserve it! And it all begins with a plan! After a bride and groom sign my contract, I first do a happy dance and welcome them to the Allison Ewing Photography family! Next, we begin to plan the engagement session. (My favorite!) Then, we begin talking through the timeline for your wedding day so that we make sure no moments go uncaptured.
When my husband and I were in the beginning stages of planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to incorporate our friends and family into our day as much as possible. This worked out wonderfully since Allison is not only an incredible photographer, but also a friend from high school. Allison does such a wonderful job of not only being professional, but also making things fun! We love that she started with our engagement photos, which really allowed her to learn who we were in front of her camera before our big day. Her ability to capture exactly how we were feeling in the crazy chaos of our wedding day is absolutely amazing! I could go on and on, but her pictures speak for themselves!
We hired Allison for our wedding, which we planned while living across the country. We were unable to meet in person beforehand or have an engagement session, but based on our phone conversations I knew she would be the perfect fit to capture our celebration. She brought so much knowledge, expertise, and compassion to every email and conversation. On the wedding day, she made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Our guests could not stop raving about her the entire evening! She captured the event in a beautiful and stunning way, and we're so happy to have photos that we'll love and cherish for the rest of our lives. Her turnaround was really fast too!
Where to begin with Allison! From the engagement pictures to our wedding pictures we have nothing but great words to say about her. She made us feel so comfortable even in the extreme conditions we took our pictures in. We went from a snowstorm to taking pictures in 95 degree heat and she constantly had a smile and we had so much fun working with her. She was incredibly easy to work with and was there for any need we had and answered any questions. For not knowing her before our engagement session I felt like after that day we knew who she was and how great a decision it was to work with her. I'm so grateful she was able to capture beautiful pictures that we will have for the rest of our lives. I can not wait to work with her in the future.
Allison made our wedding day run so smoothly. She captured the most beautiful moments and on top of that was the sweetest person in the world. I cannot thank her enough for sharing her gift with my new husband and I!
I cannot express enough how wonderful it was to take photos with Allison. We are so in love with our engagement photos! We felt so comfortable working with her and spent the entire time relaxed and laughing together. The results are beautiful, natural photos that capture such a special time in our lives. I highly recommend hiring Allison for your photography needs. I promise you won't be disappointed!
All the nerves disappear and the sweetest moments happen during this time. This will be the only time you’re alone all day with you groom and the photos speak for themselves.
...laughing with your best friends. Bonus if there’s lots of music playing!
It took a lot of time to put your wedding day visions together. It all comes to life with your details!
...with an important man in her life. Whether that’s her dad, grandpa, uncle or brother, these moments are the sweetest to capture.
The one after you’ve been announced as Mr & Mrs for the first time and you walk hand in hand down the aisle. The joy in this moment is priceless- so it should absolutely be sealed with a kiss!
Your best friends are there to support you on the biggest day of your life so far. That’s worth celebrating!
There’s nothing better than sneaking the bride & groom away for a few glowy sunset photos. It’s time to soak in these moments as husband & wife.
All I’m saying is it’s a good thing I’m behind my camera during these dances. Cue all the tears!
From cake to cookies, and donuts to cupcakes- the options are limitless! No matter which one you choose, your guests (and photographer) will appreciate the sweet treat.
Does this even need an explanation? Sliders, pizza, nachos-- it’s all delicious!
