Allison Stoddard Photography




Hello there, I'm Allison!

It is so important to me that you find a photographer whose work you LOVE -- but it's also just as important to find someone who you enjoy to be around. After all, it is your wedding day and you have plenty more to worry about than a photographer who you just don't connect with. I'm a lover of adventure, golden hour light and of course a sappy love story. I'm generally a pretty shy person but get incredibly excited and animated when I find the perfect photo spot and lighting. 

I am constantly inspired by my clients and their love. I look at each wedding and shoot as such a unique experience. I want to capture you. Your story, your history, your way of being. Rather than having you fit into my mold and running through the same motions for each wedding I always aim to tailor each experience to the couple. So if you're quiet and reserved or outgoing and playful I let you be you in front of my camera. 

I absolutely live for candid moments during a wedding day and try to get to know each couple before their day so I know when a certain hug, kiss or glance would be extra special to the couple for me to capture. While I like to arrive at each wedding fully prepared and organized for your formal, posed photos, the natural moments I get to capture are always what I (and my clients) love most. 

I'm always happy to hear about new love stories and hopefully have the chance to capture a little piece of them.

Allison is fantastic, and words can't even begin to scratch the surface of articulating her talent, but I will try!! I got married in March 2021, after the pandemic foiled 2 prior attempts at a celebration. I looked for months until I came across All...    Read More
