Allison is AMAZING! She was so easy to communicate with before the wedding and was very timely. She was so organized on our wedding day and had such great ideas for pictures. She didn’t mind jumping in a field to get some amazing pictures. We were running late due to hair and makeup and Allison kept me calm. She posted a sneak peak and we are obsessed. We can’t wait to see more pictures and would recommend Kismet Visuals to anyone. Thank you Allison for being an amazing part of our wedding day! More...

I don't even know where to start. Allison was absolutely amazing in capturing our engagement and wedding. I will highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who wants a wedding photographer who cares about you, your relationship, your big day, and making sure everything is just right on her end (well before your big day). 10/10 will be getting photos from Allison for other life events. Thank you, Allison!!! More...

Allison is an amazing and very talented photographer. She is extremely organized, easy to work with and has a natural eye for detail! Her photos are absolutely stunning, beautiful and timeless with gorgeous lighting! She captured all the beauty of our wedding SO perfectly; the emotions, romance and our playful love! She is kind, friendly and professional in all that she does. Going through our wedding photos they tell a story of the best day of our lives; we relive the day. We love our photos and will treasure them forever. Her turnaround time is super quick. We were very impressed when we received all edited photos exactly two weeks from our wedding day (over 1000 photos)! She was accommodating and flexible throughout the entire process. We live out of state and had the wedding in Ohio; from start to finish, communicating with Allison was stress-free. Prior to the wedding we had only met with her once (as we had our engagement photos out of state) and felt completely comfortable with her and confident! She is very reputable and respected in the industry – and her positive energy shines. She kept everyone on track the day of with a detailed timeline to follow. We got married at The Oak Grove at Jorgensen Farms and she is very familiar with the venue. We had photos taken at sunset and she knew the picture-perfect spots that would capture the best lighting on us. TRULY MAGICALLY FAIRYTALE PHOTOS! We highly recommend Allison, she met all of our expectations! We can’t wait to have her take more photos for us in the future! More...

Booking with Allison and Kismet was the best decision I made when planning my wedding. It was the first vendor I booked with (even before the venue). Kismet was more than just my photographer, Allison is my friend who did an amazingly perfect job at capturing every moment of our wedding day. I could not be happier with the kindness, generosity, and level of professionalism I received with Allison and the pictures are unreal. Allison is a very respected and well known photographer in Columbus and is the best. I would not wait on booking with one of the top photographers in Columbus. She is worth every penny too. She specializes at shooting at Oak Grove Jorgensen Farms and makes the pictures look unique and different even after shooting there so often. Oh, and her Instagram is also perfect. Allison was very responsive through email and even stayed over her contracted time allotment to capture a few more special moments of my wedding. We received all 742 pictures edited and everything less than two weeks after the wedding... in her busy season. She is phenomenal. Contact her now! THANK YOU Allison! More...

I follow Kismet on Instagram and when I saw she started offering a photo booth, The Selfie Spot 614, I knew I had to have it at my wedding! I reached out very last minute and she was so accommodating! They dropped it off at my venue and picked it up the next day! She was also very helpful with designing my logo for the booth! It was a hit all night long!! More...

Allison is so professional and sweet & an AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER! She took my headshots and boudoir photos, years ago (under her formerly named studio) She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and the images themselves were so great! I thought they were from a magazine. It made a feel so beautiful and appreciative that I took the time to get to experience that intimate journey with Allison. Many of my family members turned to Allison when they wanted pictures done, as well, including my nieces senior photos and for my parents 40th anniversary. Allison is dedicated to her craft in every way. She goes above and beyond what I could have imagined! Thank so much, Allison! More...

Allison is so incredibly good at what she does. She is creative, thoughtful, professional, responsive, kind-- all the things you need from someone you're trusting to capture the moments most precious to you. Her attention to detail is outstanding and her customer service is top notch. It's been 5 years since our wedding day, and I still love looking through our photos. I recently found that some of the files on my USB corrupted over time, so I sent Allison an email and she provided access to our online gallery in minutes. Hiring her as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made! 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 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...

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!

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.

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.
