Allison was amazing! She captured the perfect moments and we got so many compliments on how great our pictures turned out! She was so organized, knew our event space inside and out and did such a great job moving us along throughout the night. We were able to be present in the moment and enjoy the evening with friends and family but would get pulled away at just the right times to capture the most perfect pictures! More...

I would HIGHLY recommend Allison at Kismet Visuals- she did our wedding photos, and they were beyond gorgeous. She captured the atmosphere and emotions of the day, the venue and small details, the unplanned special moments and the planned groups shots to perfection. She did a great job with adjusting at the last minute to my husband's broken ankle, and making sure to create gorgeous shots that took the attention away from the boot. She was incredibly responsive at all times throughout the wedding planning and had a highly detailed timeline pulled together for the day-of that helped us organize our day. When it came to getting the photos back- she did so very quickly (around a 2 week turn around time), with all shots edited and in an easy to use gallery site. We were blown away with how amazing the photos were- we could hardly choose our favorites! Allison is great at what she does- if you're looking for timeless images, she's the one! More...

Allison was amazing. She was extremely professional, truly enjoyed herself and made sure everything went off without problems. She captured the whole day, dealt with a huge bridal party and family and never appeared stressed! Listened to all our requests and had fun!!!! She had our pictures done in less than 2 weeks and they were PERFECT More...

Allison is amazing - she makes you feel so incredibly comfortable and takes such creative and thoughtful photos. She really cares about how you want to remember your special day and is so flexible, easy-going and fun to work with. We loved having her with our wedding party throughout the entire day - she was there for every moment, even snapping photos on our party bus! We got all of our wedding photos back two weeks after our wedding - such an amazing turnaround time and you can tell a lot of time went into the final delivery. We are SO happy with our photos and will have a hard time selecting which photos we want to print! I highly recommend Kismet - we can't wait to use her again for future family photos too!! :) More...

Alison and her team were able to give us more than we could have ever imagined wanting from a wedding photographer! From our engagement session to the wedding itself we could not have been happier. She was always confirming each and every detail and helped so much with keeping all the plans straight. Her timeliness to get us the final products was so much faster than expected and everything looked perfect! More...

We absolutely loved working with Allison. From the first meeting through our engagement pictures and the entire planning process, she was there to answer our questions and made us feel so comfortable! We are completely floored with the beautiful photos she took to capture our day, and I can not imagine having anyone else be there with us. Allison did such a good job helping us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and even in the moments when we didn't, she captured us in the best way possible. Nothing but good things to say and everyone in my family or involved in the day feels the same way. Thank you, Allison! More...

I love little details! This is one of many reasons I was drawn to Allison as our wedding photographer. She is professional, efficient, and kept our day on schedule (not even her job) while capturing every little detail. I would highly recommend Allison for anyone hoping to have their memories beautifully captured for a lifetime✨ Thanks again, Allison, we could not be happier! ♥️ More...

Choosing Allison as our photographer was seriously one of the best vendor decisions that we made for our wedding! Allison was so easy to work with - she was professional, responsive, and so helpful with all my questions. She helped me work out details from the beginning to end that met my budget and timeline needs. On our actual wedding day, I never needed to worry about a single detail b/c she is so experienced and directed us to get all the beautiful shots the we didn't even know we wanted! Oh, and did I mention she was super fast in turning around our final photos?

I know it can be scary committing a significant amount of budget towards photography, but I really feel like it was funds well spent at the end of the day. Don't hesitate to hire this wonderful photographer! The quality of the experience and the photographs themselves is well well worth it!

We are so thankful our videographer Jonah Epps Films recommended Allison to us! She was so sweet, thoughtful, calm, and flexible the day of our wedding. We felt 100% confident through the entire process that she had everything under control so we could enjoy our day. It was truly an honor to be one of her #kismetcouples! More...

Brides if you are looking for a wedding photographer you can stop looking, Allison is by far the best one you'll find. When I started looking for wedding photographers for our wedding last October I looked at plenty of photographers work on Instagram and was truly blown away by Allison's work. We loved her work so much that we picked our wedding date based on when she was available. Allison made us feel so comfortable during our engagement pictures and we laughed and had such a blast getting them done and were so thrilled when we received them. They were truly beautiful. Our wedding day was no different. She went above and beyond to answer any questions that we had beforehand and did an amazing job throughout the day even when were ahead of schedule. She gave us so many incredible images that I truly classic and timeless and we will treasure them for a lifetime. Being a good photographer is about so much more than taking good photos, it's also about making sure your clients fee comfortable with the poses and making them feel like they aren't even posing but are just having fun while someone is capturing the moment and Allison is a master at that. We are having her do a photo session with us every season and we can't wait to see her again soon for our snowy season and our spring session. But brides don't wait, you will truly not regret hiring her as your photographer. More...

We had been referred to Kismet by close friends. Allison took our engagement pics and while we were super awkward at first (because we hate having our pictures taken) you wouldn’t see that in the photos. She helped us feel more natural and after a while we forgot she was there (in a good way). Our engagement photos were better than anticipated but our wedding photos... wow!!!

Allison and Julia really captured the magic of the evening. We felt like they were friends hanging out and celebrating with us. Our families and friends felt comfortable and again, didn’t notice them (in a good way!). We just attended a wedding prior to our own where the photographer had everyone pause halfway down the aisle in order to pose for the pictures. In fact, the entire wedding was posed and re-posed. It felt fake and completely took away from the actual wedding. It was a photo shoot. That was not the case with Kismet.

Not only were their ideas creative but the talent of getting those amazing shots. I don’t know how they did it. I don’t know how they were able to capture not just photos but so many moments that night. You can see the magic through their photos. It’s amazing.

Allison's service was top notch from beginning to end. She was very responsive to our initial inquiry and continued to exceed our expectations throughout our wedding planning. Our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and we receive more and more compliments about them each day. We are looking forward to using Allison in the future for our family photos, too. We would HIGHLY recommend Allison to anyone! More...

In a season of thousands of decisions, knowing that I could rely on Kismet Visuals was a wonderful feeling. I loved every single photo we received and was so so pleased with how Allison captured the day. She was very professional and easy to work with. When creating a wedding album, I found it very hard to choose between all the wonderful images she captured for us! I highly recommend Kismet Visuals & Co! More...

Allison and her photographer were so professional and wonderful from start to finish. They were so flexible and compassionate, even when they had to get our 20-person bridal party together for group pics (they turned out so amazing). I really do believe it was "fate" we found her because she captured every special moment that I would have missed! We love Kismet and will definitely be using her for any and all big events in the future! :D More...

Allison is the best of the best. From day one when I reached out to her with interest, she was so quick to respond and informative regarding my questions. She is SO organized, and I because of that, I always felt like I was a priority - even though I know she juggles HUNDREDS of other clients in a given season. Her work is gorgeous, and she knew how to make my fiance and I comfortable in front of the camera, even when I was deathly nervous before our ceremony. I'm so pleased with the gallery of our day, which captured the big moments, the small moments, and all of the details in between. Her second shooter was also extremely talented, and we have so many beautiful images to remember the day by. Thank you, Kismet Visuals!! More...

After working with Kismet Visuals, it is hard to imagine having anyone else on our wedding day. Allison, and her assistant Renee, were one of the few aspects of our wedding day I didn't have to worry about. With only having seen a few photos, we already know we will be forever grateful for Kismet's work (we were married 3 days ago). Allison's professionalism and ability to execute my wedding day photography vision, surpassed all expectations. She made our wedding, our family, and us, her priority. Her passion and talent shined through her work, and through interactions with our friends and family.

I CANNOT thank Allison and Kismet Visuals enough for allowing me to feel like I had a FRIEND behind the camera.

They rolled with every turn of the day, including when I was minutes from walking down the aisle and I realized I still had our wedding bands.
She was honest when she wasn't confident she would be able to complete an idea I had, due to lighting or time, but offered to try if I wanted to. I appreciated this honesty because I wanted the option to take pics that were risky, and the instruction to know why they may not turn out as I planned, but it was still my choice.

Kismet Visuals treated my new husband and I like family. As our wedding day transpired and the hours passed, I knew she truly cared about us, and capturing our memories.

We used Allison and Kismet for the two most important days/moments of our lives so far...our wedding and the birth of our daughter. The pictures are truly amazing and something we will cherish forever, but the interactions with Allison are as well. She always makes you feel comfortable, beautiful, and feel like your opinions and ideas matter! Thank you, Kismet and Allison, for capturing those moments for us and many more in the future! More...

She had the photos done super quickly and was professional through the entire process. Seriously, every photo she took was AMAZING and I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. I'm going to frame all of them. Do yourself a favor and book her out of this world skills!! I'll definitely be using her services for future life events. More...

Our experience having Allison as our wedding photographer couldn't have been more amazing! From the get-go, she answered all our questions in such a timely matter that that alone made us want to work with her. She was also very flexible with time and location on all our meetings. When this time is most stressful for most couples, she really was a breath of fresh (calm!) air. We met with multiple photographers, hers being the first, and no one lived up to her presentation, organization, and professionalism. All these qualities really shine through in her work.
We couldn't imagine having used anyone else other than Allison for our big day and will definitely be using her in the future :)

I had followed Allison’s work through her social media pages for awhile and I knew she would give us amazing photographs, but she far exceeded our expectations. We are so in love with every engagement and wedding photo we received. We would recommend Kismet Visuals & Co. over and over again!

Allison is such a sweetheart and did an amazing job on both our engagement and wedding photos. We were very nervous about feeling awkward during our engagement shoot, but Allison really put us at ease with her calming and fun personality. We had such a great time with her on the wedding day and the photos turned out absolutely beautiful. All of the poses she suggests are very natural and turned out great in the photos. She also has a very speedy turn around time and always quick to respond to emails. We definitely plan on contacting her in the future as we build our family. More...

Allison was wonderful! Her attention to detail and level of creativity are outstanding. We planned a wedding in little over two months and everything came together so beautifully because of the professionalism and dedication of people like her! She made everything very comfortable and relaxed...she even stood outside in the middle of a rainstorm for us! So much dedication to providing a variety of photographs! Our pictures are not only memories, but small works of art. She captures so many emotions, every time I look back on our pictures (this happens quite often :)) I get goosebumps! It brings back every rush of emotion I had on our special day. Her display of your printed photographs is also very thoughtful and just more proof of how much she loves her job. Thank you so much for going above and beyond! More...

Brett & I could not say enough about how wonderful it was to meet and work with Allison for our engagement and wedding pictures over the last year. She is a joy to be around and always made us feel comfortable. Her smile and laugh are contagious and she becomes more than your photographer, but your friend. She is up for anything, so flexible, and always willing to do whatever it takes to make your vision come to life. She is quick to respond and answer any and all questions you may have. For our engagement pictures we brought our 4 month old golden retriever along, and although he was a bit finicky Allison captured some amazing shots of us with him and understood how important it was to us to involve him. We are so thankful that we will have those pictures forever. I cannot say enough about how beautiful our wedding pictures are. In just a 6 hour span on our wedding day, Allison captured amazing shots of our details, family, bridal party, venue, and of us. We had so much fun that day and she kept us relaxed and at ease during high stress moments. Allison's work is second to none and I would highly recommend her to any couple looking for a photographer to capture all the special moments on their wedding day! More...

If you hire Allison/Kismet Visuals...I can say with 100% certainty you will NOT be disappointed! Allison is not only professional, but also extremely fun to work with.

Allison is incredible. Since my husband and I were living in NYC (but having our wedding in Ohio) we were anticipating some "added stress" to our planning process -- but because we chose Allison, that was not the case AT ALL. From start to finish, Allison was flexible, professional, warm, TALENTED and so very kind. She went out of her way to accommodate our last minute decision to do engagement photos and was flexible with our crazy travel schedule. Leading up to the wedding, she was very clear on timelines and due dates. Allison does her 'homework' and genuinely wants to understand your vision so she can capture those very special details and moments. One of my favorite things about Allison was her presence on the day of the wedding. With a big bridal party, you want someone that can command the group, while keeping the mood light and everyone happy -- not once did we feel like we were being bossed around. It was so nice to put my trust in her entirely as she led the flow of our day. She even taught us last minute how to cut the cake! Last but not least... the photos. They were everything we wanted and more. She captured our personalities - and those of our guests as well. We are thrilled that we invested in Allison to give us memories that will last for a lifetime. More...

Allison at Kismet Visuals was wonderful to work with and we are so happy that she captured our special day! From our first meeeting with her at her studio to the beautiful box with our printed photos that we received after the wedding, everything about our experience with Kismet Visuals exceeded our expectations. Allison was very prompt with all communication and understood exactly what we wanted out of our wedding photos. She even suggested sunset photos at the reception and those turned out to be some of our favorite photos! We would highly recommend Kismet Visuals and will definitely be going back for any future special moments! :)

Allison was better than we could have ever imagined. I have a background in photography so I had a lot more little things I was looking for when choosing a photographer. On top of that, I know how difficult it can be to capture critical moments because of all the thought & preparation that goes into getting that perfect shot. Allison was able to capture those moments, and she gave me peace of mind after our engagement photo session. One less thing to worry about made a big difference on our wedding day. When it came to our family pictures she controlled the situation very well and worked quickly and calmly. She had a plan B (and probably a plan C if she truly needed it) to get the little ones to cooperate.

Simply put, you can't go wrong with her, if she is available on your wedding day then save yourself the time of looking around and book her now.

Allison is spectacular. She made me feel so comfortable on my wedding day. She kept everything light and fun. She moved things right along, while still paying attention to exactly what I wanted (while suggesting poses/ directing me so I didn't show my bad side that i warned her about ;)) She got creative with the photos and paid attention to every small detail. I cannot believe how amazing and natural our photos look. If you're looking for someone who will make you feel comfortable and relaxed, while having a great time, then Allison is definitely for you!

I really don't know how they managed to capture the amazing shots they got, but we were more than thrilled with how everything turned out!

Advice to a couple would be...Kismet Visuals is incredibly talented and professional. You can trust them to capture every important moment of your big day, and they come up with great creative ideas for posed and candid looking shots. Kismet Visuals captured every part of my big day. From the detail shots, getting ready, first look, bride & groom, bridal party, family portraits, Ceremony and reception shots. They also got great pictures of my venue, flowers, decor and all of my guests. You can enjoy your day and not have to worry about getting good pictures because Kismet Visuals is really the best. The Ladies came to the hotel and got shots of me and my Bridal party getting ready which I really appreciated because even the moments leading up to the actual wedding are important. Now I have so many amazing pictures to share with Family and Friends and I'll always get to look back on. If you want the best pictures on your Wedding Day you must go with Kismet Visuals. More...

Working with Allison was a joy. Allison is professional, flexible, and so talented. She has given us photos that we and our families will cherish for a long time to come.

In working with us, Allison won over a skeptic. When we started planning, my husband was not completely sold on my emphasis on photography. After working with Allison and seeing her images from our engagement session and wedding day, he has told me over and over again how happy he is that we worked with her. Before the wedding, Allison helped me by recommending vendors. On the day of the wedding, she had our camera-shy wedding party relaxed and happy. She captured images of the people and things we and said were priorities, and did not leave our wedding until she had crossed everything off her list. These gorgeous photos are how we will remember our wedding down the line; we are both glad we made this investment. We would wholeheartedly recommend Kismet Visuals & Co. Photography & Design. Cheers!

Allison did a beautiful job for our July wedding. She was able to capture our vision in such an artistic way.

Allison was such a pleasure to work with! From the initial inquiry I sent her, I felt at ease and like I had known her forever. We are so happy to have had her as our photographer. She is so professional, organized, and responsive. Most importantly, she is fun to work with! We had a blast with her and Jocelyn, her second shooter the day of our wedding, and felt completely at ease. Our families and wedding party also thought that Allison and Jocelyn were great to work with. She captured all of the important moments (and all the little moments in between) in a way that felt effortless. We are thrilled with how our photos turned out and can't wait to work with Allison again for future family photos! More...

I've been following Allison on Instagram and Facebook since before I was even engaged- she had done a friend's wedding and I absolutely loved her work! When it came time to book our own wedding photographer, hiring Allison was a no brainer. She was so easy to work with and so responsive to my emails. A month or so before the wedding she sent the most detailed questionnaire to make sure she got all the shots we wanted. She even met with my now-husband and I to get to know us before the wedding. On the day of, she and her assistant were such a joy to work with. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and had us laughing all day. To top it off, we had barely unpacked from our honeymoon when we got our gallery! The photos are so so beautiful. I can't stop looking at them, and I definitely can't stop sharing them with everyone. I definitely recommend her! More...

I always look forward to the final product as she packages everything up so cute. I've been in so many weddings and no one has come close to Allison work. She perfects every photo and takes the time to give direction during the photo sessions. She also finds the right lighting and positioning and doesn't just snap and go like many photographers.

Words cannot express how thankful my husband and I are for Allison's wonderful work. Photography was number one on our list for wedding vendors in regards to budgeting so we hunted around for awhile to find the perfect person. From our engagement session to the wedding day, Allison was professional and extremely responsive to our text, phone calls, and emails. She gives amazing direction and advice to those who may not feel super comfortable behind the camera and is able to make getting your picture taken really fun! She truly has a gift and captured every detail perfectly on our wedding day. When we received our wedding photos I felt like I was reliving our wedding day all over again which is exactly what I wanted. She is easy to work with, extremely talented, and truly loves her job which makes working with her that much more special. Everyone from the wedding party to our wedding guests have expressed how beautiful and tasteful our engagement and wedding photos turned out. Kismet Visuals & Co. was by far the BEST investment we made while wedding planning and her photos are something we will forever cherish. More...

I actually had been following Kismet Visuals for a very long time and just completely admired her and work. So deciding to have Allison photograph our big day was a no brainer since I told my fiancé (now husband) that we couldn't have anyone else! We have nothing but great things to say about her. She made us feel comfortable and was so sweet. She was extremely patient with the craziness of our day. She gave us more than we could ever ask for. She is brilliant photographer with the most creative eye. She captured everything perfectly! We would rececommend her to anyone and everyone! More...

We simply can't speak highly enough about Allison at Kismet Visuals & Co. Photography & Design. She was amazing to work with and captured flawless images that documented our big day. When we look at our photos it feels like we are reliving the best day of our life! Allison is flexible, professional, and extremely talented. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She definitely exceeded our expectations! More...

Your photographer is one of THE most important things when it comes to your wedding; they are the ones that will capture your memories from that day and we cannot be more pleased with Allison and Kismet Visuals! The details and emotions that she captured are amazing and every time we look at our photos it instantly takes us back to that day. Allison is so sweet, friendly and just great to work with! She had our photo gallery ready to view within a week after our wedding, which is really unheard of. But, her quick editing skills by no means sacrifices quality!! She is very talented and her love and passion for what she does really shines through in her photos and the memories that she captures. I would highly recommend Allison and Kismet Visuals! More...

Allison was a true pleasure to work with. She is friendly, professional, fun, organized and extremely talented! She was always quick to respond to questions and we received our engagement photos within 3 days! She made us feel comfortable during the engagement session and the wedding. Our wedding was just a few days ago so we've only seen a sneak peak at a few photos and they are absolutely gorgeous. We wouldn't think twice about recommending Allison, and we haven't even seen the finished album. Capturing our wedding day through beautiful photos was very important to us and Allison definitely exceeded our expectations! More...

Allison did an amazing job capturing our wedding day! She was professional, organized and made sure she had pictures of every detail.

Allison is fantastic. From our engagement photos, to the wedding day, to our final photos, everything exceeded our expectations. The day of the wedding, it was stormy and rainy and I was stressing out. Allison caught so many amazing photos in this weather, that in hindsight I'm kind of happy it was stormy! She advocated for me and what she knew I wanted, which was so helpful and appreciated. She was easily accessible leading up to the wedding to answer any of my questions. I am so happy that we chose her as our photographer. I couldn't have asked for anything better! More...

Allison was an absolute joy to work with! When I was searching for a photographer I had a particularly busy work schedule and my hours made it difficult to set up meetings with vendors. She went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule and find a time that we could meet! After meeting, I knew my search need not go on! We shot our engagement photos with Allison as well and it only made me more excited to have her capture our big day. Her work is impeccable and she makes you feel comfortable while shooting. She finished our photo gallery so quickly that we were actually still on our honeymoon when we received the link to view the gallery! We will treasure the moments she captured forever and would recommend her to anyone. More...

Allison is the complete package. She is sweet, fun, professional, talented, and super easy to work with. From the moment I met Allison, I felt completely at ease. She took time to get to know me and my husband, and shared sweet stories of her own family. Not only is she a great photographer, but I love and respected her devotion to being a wife and a mother. It was for completely evident that we would be booking a hopeless romantic that appreciated the small joys of a wedding day and the details that make the day so special. We booked Allison for both our engagement and wedding day photos. Neither my husband nor I consider ourselves to be "photogenic" and we are very shy behind the camera. Allison had a natural way of helping us to warm up to the camera and feel at ease sharing intimate moments with a complete stranger. We were incredibly surprised and impressed with the pictures she posted that night and then later our entire album. When it came to our wedding photos- WOW. First- we were so touched that Allison shared our engagement photo blog on facebook the night before our wedding. It was absolutely sweet to revisit that day and it really set the right tone for a wedding weekend. Second- Allison's sweet and calm personality really caught our bridal parties attention and made a chaotic day easy and fun. The day went by so smoothly and Allison completely organized a fun, memorable, and detail oriented day with ease. Things that make Allison the best- 1. She can make the shyest couple feel comfortable within moments of meeting her. 2. Her work is phenomenal. She captured nearly 1500 pictures of our entire day, each with clarity and creativity, andincredible quality. Her background in graphic design really stood our in her photos. They are absolutely flawless. 3. Her turn around is incredible. She posted sneak peeks immediately with sweet little messages to share with out families, and then our gallery was sent to us within two weeks. She's the the absolute best! More...

We spent a significant amount of time "scouting out" wedding photographers knowing that the photographs were all we would have to show after the day was over. We could not be happier that we chose Allison to be our photographer. Not only are her pictures absolutely AMAZING, but she is also extremely kind, professional, and courteous. Allison took our engagement photos as well as our wedding pictures. We received so many compliments on both! I can't stress enough how happy we are that we found her for our wedding pictures. She did not disappoint! More...

She is so passionate about her work. She was very flexible with packages and she was very responsive to any questions we had. Alison brought another professional photographer to assist her in taking our wedding photos. THEY ARE AMAZING! She caught everything and more! I am so happy with her work and with how fast her turn around was. I would recommend Alison to anyone out there! We will be using her for all of our future photography needs! More...

Allison from Studio127 Photography was incredibly easy to work with and made both my husband and I feel very comfortable throughout the engagement photos and wedding photography process! She made sure to get the shots I wanted and managed to make us look great even on the most humid day of summer (engagement pictures) and cold and rainiest day of fall (our wedding). Another great thing about her is how fast she edits and gets the pictures and digital files back to you. I had friends waiting months to get their edited wedding pictures back and we had everything back within two weeks. More...

From the work we initially saw from Allison, we knew we could count on her for amazing photos. Our engagement and wedding photos were absolutely wonderful.

From the planning, to the rehearsal dinner, her flexibility the day of the wedding, and of course her quality of images. We are beyond pleased with our decision in her! She captured every detail and emotion, and we now have these memories to last a lifetime. We love Studio127 and we know you will too! More...

Allison was amazing to work with. She was very professional and knew how to get the right angles and right lighting. For our engagement photos, I provided her with a bunch of photos from Pinterest that I liked and she made sure to capture similar moments without making anything feel "staged". Because I was so busy, I didn't get a chance to really talk to Allison before the wedding about what shots were most important to me. However, without much guidance from me, she still took the most amazing photos and made sure all of the details were captured. All of my friends were OBSESSED with my pictures and wished they had hired Studio127! Also - she gets your pictures to you SO FAST after the wedding. I was shocked that I was able to look at all of my photos within 2-3 weeks! I highly recommend hiring her for your big event! More...

We booked Allison because we loved her work online! We got married in Charleston, West Virginia and had a hard time finding a photographer that fit our needs so our search continued until we found Allison in Columbus, Ohio. We had a video chat session with her and she was so lovely and her rates were reasonable so we decided to book her without ever meeting in person. Having Alllison as our photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding - she was responsive, helpful with our timeline, had great recommendations... she was so friendly, our bridal party and guests loved her. I honestly forgot there was a photographer throughout my wedding and she managed to capture ALL the perfect moments. I HIGHLY recommend Allison as your photographer and I wish she was closer to me because I want her as my family photographer in the future!!! Thank you Allison for capturing our special day with GORGEOUS photos... you should seriously charge more for your work!!! Knowing what she is capable of, I would've paid a lot more. I can't thank her enough!!! More...

Allison with Studio 127 was very sweet and awesome to work with and did a beautiful job capturing our wedding. Her pictures had the soft and romantic feel I was looking for. On the wedding day things got very hectic and flew by--I didn't even get a chance to see how all my decorations had turned out (such as my candy buffet, reception table, gift box, centerpieces, etc.), but I was really excited to see that Allison had captured every small detail when I received the proofs of my photos. Her attention to the little details was superb. She also did a great job of capturing my husband and I in many candid/un-posed shots, which were ultimately some of my favorites.

Allison was also very flexible and accommodating regarding where I wanted to go to take pictures between the wedding and the reception. And made sure that we got a good variety of pictures.

Post-wedding, Allison had my proofs to me very quickly (while I was still honeymooning) and was willing to make any small adjustments that I requested, which I really appreciated.

Overall, Allison with Studio 127 was a fantastic choice for a wedding photographer. She captured our day beautifully and I would highly recommend booking her for your wedding. She will hear from my when I need baby pictures in the future! =)

We loved working with Allison from Studio 127! She was very easy to communicate with, and very understanding and level-headed. She did everything she could to ensure that our special day was recorded exactly how we requested, and then used her skill and good eye as a photographer to provide us some artsy and extra-special pictures that we never could have gotten on our own. Allison was everywhere we needed her, when we needed her, and doing what she was supposed to be doing, all while remaining out of the spotlight. Even in our guests' pictures, she is barely ever visible, yet she somehow managed to get perfect shots of everything! The pictures were provided to us in an extremely timely manner and we were even given the option to request some picture editing if we wanted. All of the pictures were incredibly high-quality and there were so many pictures detailing all of the incredible moments from a day we will never forget! We would certainly recommend Allison for whatever kind of photography you need. Thank you so much to Studio 127! More...

Allison with Studio 127 is a top-notch photographer! She has it all. We originally hired her because of her artistic eye that tells a story through her photographs; however, we quickly learned that she is extremely professional, timely, and has an ability to make you feel comfortable as well. Her prices are definitely reasonable which makes the investment that much better. She offers private shoots to focus on you and/or your family as well as quick mini-sessions. Allison is so quick in her return of the photos as well as with ordering. She shot our wedding and then family portraits when our son was born. We will definitely be using her in the future! More...

She and her second photographer worked with with our crazy wedding party and family, stuck with us the whole day, and never missed a shot.

Studio127 Photography was an absolute dream to work with. Alison was professional and always quick to respond back to any communication I would send her. Starting with our first meeting she really took the time to get to know my fiance and I (at the time) as a couple. She felt more like a friend than just a photographer. Her personality is so warm and inviting you instantly feel like you know her. Our engagement session with Alison was so much fun. She incorporated our personalities into the session completely. My husband can freeze in front of the camera and she made it easy to be ourselves in front of her. After the engagement session I knew that I would be pleased with her services for our big day. On our big day she was prompt to get to the hotel where we were getting ready. She got right to work and we did not even notice she was there. She captured all of the important moments with grace and without effort. The entire day she was there for me and very flexible when the photography schedule didn't go as planned. She thought on her feet and made the best of the time. She stayed up until the last minute even after I told her numerous times that I knew she had to be beat (because I was by the end of dancing)-- but she stuck to the contractual time. You would be BLESSED to have her there to be a part of your big day. Not to mention the photographs are absolutely STUNNING and I get compliments on them everyday. I love Studio 127! More...

Hi there! Allison did my wedding photos recently and I am completely thrilled with the result. First, everything leading up to the day, our first visit, email and phone communications were great. Allison was very responsive, friendly, and professional. On the wedding day, she arrived promptly at the hotel room for "getting ready" pictures and those turned out to be some of my favorites! She was great for my husband and I's "first glance" photos, getting him positioned where he couldn't see me, and capturing us seeing each other for the first time that day perfectly. Family photo time showed Allison's tact and patience. I could go on and on, on her knowledge of how to capture moments and beautiful background. She captured all the important things about the day and the little things that will help me remember the feel of being there. More...

Q&A

The difference between a good photograph and a great photograph is most times the difference between good lighting and bad lighitng!

How many people will I be photographing?
Will this be indoor or outdoor?
Do you only need digital files or would you like prints as well?

The variety it offers and the wonderful people I get to know!

I was a graphic designer who did photography as a hobby. Slowly my hobby grew accidentally and before I knew it I had enough clients and enough bookings to quite the corporate world and be my own boss.

I make people feel comfortable, I am professional and willing to go with the flow when needed yet get everything captured that my clients need.
