i asked where she thought they might like to shoot their engagement session and she answered without hesitation…vulcan. i knew that’s where he’d proposed but what i didn’t know until we met there earlier this week was the rest of the history behind that location and their relationship.
by the time i drove away from their hotel saturday night, i felt the same sweet familiarity that you would expect from several friends who’ve known each other for ages. yes, we met long before their wedding day when they interviewed me early last year as a potential wedding photographer, and i had the opportunity [...]
what do you think about having a hot air balloon for our engagement session? i could barely type as fast as my brain was spitting out the yeses in reply to her email. i loved the concept of something that would add so much vibrancy, color, and larger-than-life perspective to our session.
it’s been nearly 13 years, but i vividly remember the planning. weddings were a lot different back then and teemed over with lots of have-to’s and supposed-to-be’s. now don’t get me wrong…i adore the sacred nature of a wedding ceremony and i love hints of tradition sprinkled throughout the day, but there’s something to be [...]
it’s one of my favorite days of the entire wedding process…the engagement session. not only does shooting together before the big day help the oh my goodness, there’s a camera pointed right at me panic to disappear so that only the comfortable interactions remain, but it’s also the perfect opportunity for me to see a [...]

i had the concept. i had the photos. the only problem was that i couldn’t find the song. i’d pored over countless pieces of music but nothing made me feel like i wanted to feel as i watched images of so many of my amazing clients move before my eyes.
then i heard it.
it will go down in allison lewis photography history as one of the weirdest and wildest shoots ever. he flew in, she drove in, it rained virtually the whole time, and we wrapped the session amidst a flock of donkeys and alpacas.
oh, and did i mention the [...]
when i asked the story on how they met, she giggled shyly and said, oh no…it’s so nerdy!! he’d had his eye on her for a while, conveniently landing himself in the same auburn study group she was in. oblivious to his attempts, though, she barely noticed him until one day…
