5 Star Review: “I am a professional photographer myself so the wedding photographs were a very high priority for me and my wife. I put a lot of research into wedding photographers near and far. Alison Conklin was my first choice because of her beautiful style and we are so happy that she was able to capture our day. Her photographs are stunning and exactly what we were looking for. Alison and her husband Geoff were easy and fun to work with. We definitely made the right decision in booking her.” Read more reviews here.
I am obsessed. My passion for weddings, food, fashion and design, along with my penchant for capturing interesting people in actual moments, forms the foundation on which my work builds.
When I was 14, I lost my mother… suddenly. Before she died, she and my dad had been avid photographers, amassing a trove of images. To process my loss, I poured through all of the black and white images of her I could find. The images taught me who my mother really was, and I was struck with an intense appreciation for how a single photograph can capture emotion and tell an entire story.
This experience has colored everything about who I am, how I work, and why I do what I do.
Life matters. I want my photographs to evoke feelings and offer anyone who sees them some connection to something within their hearts or something buried in their mind. I want my photographs to connect people with themselves and their lives in deeper ways.
I love color, joy, light, air, smiles, patterns, organized clutter, unexpected angles and potently genuine moments. Moments most of all because in the end, it’s the moments that matter.
