“I look back on my wedding photos at least three times a week! I love looking back on the photos with my now husband and being able to talk about what we were feeling during that moment. Allison did a wonderful job capturing our entire ceremony and those are the pictures I love to look back on.
This is my favorite photo because it was during our wedding ceremony. In the photo is my mother’s veil that meant so much to me, the hanky my husband chose for the wedding day and in this moment he was wiping away tears of joy from my face.
Working with Allison Davis made our wedding day more than perfect. From the beginning, I knew I could put my full trust in her to do exactly what I wanted, and Allison did just that and more. I recommend Allison to any friends that have recently gotten engaged and also to friends and families that are looking for a great photographer for portraits. I tell anyone who asks me about our wedding photographer, “We had the most amazing wedding photographer! She was a joy to work with and made sure everything was the way we wanted it for our wedding day.” My husband and I were so pleased with all of the work she did for us (engagement, bridal and wedding day photos). She will be our photographer for any upcoming events in our life.
Wedding photography was extremely important to myself, my husband and our families. Before meeting with a wedding photographer we discussed that these are the photos we will have hanging in our home and someday share with our children. We wanted them to be nothing less than perfect, and after meeting with Allison for the first time, we knew she would be able to give us exactly what we were looking for. She was honest and genuine and we felt so comfortable with her right from “hello.” We chose to hire Allison because of her honesty, passion and love for her career. She treated us as an individual couple and I loved that about her. She was willing to do whatever she could for us to make all of the events leading up to our wedding day, as well as our wedding day more than perfect.” —Kadie T.
“When I look back at my photos I think about what a special and magical day it was. I look at them every day. They are on my desk at work and hanging all over our home.
I love the first look that is a close up angle and we’re holding hands but backed apart from one another and just looking at each other. I love the second close up of me where Brett is nestled right in by my face. I love the one where we walked out of the church and have our hands out in excitement and Brett is leaned to the left with me. I love ALL at the lake but particularly the one where I’m dipped backwards and he’s kissing me with my bouquet hanging down to the ground with trees above and light coming through, it is portrait. Also there is a landscape on where we are out in the field and I have the stems of my bouquet on my hip and we’re both looking at one another in front of the lake. I love the one where I’m jumping in his arms. From the reception I love the one where we are bowing to one another before we start our dance.
I know that is a bunch but you just take too great of pictures Mrs. Allison!! If you weren’t that great I wouldn’t be in love with so many pictures and they wouldn’t stick in my mind like they do. Clearly I can tell you all my favorites without even looking because they are too beautiful to forget!
We have all different pictures around our house. We have pictures that take your breath away because they capture the passion and love of that day and others that make us laugh about silly wonderful memories. As I look at my pictures I get a visual reminder of the day my best friend and I made the most committed and precious decision.
Allison impressed me the moment my husband and I met her. We had met with lots of photographers all of which were lovely people, but Allison comes prepared and let’s her photographs speak for her. With that being said it isn’t that she couldn’t speak for herself. Allison approaches her clients as a friend yet she remains incredible professional. She wants to know your story and how you and your fiancé met and why you are getting married.
Throughout my time working with Allison she had a wonderful calming effect on her clients and works with their schedules to the best of her ability. My wedding dress came in six weeks before the wedding and was the wrong dress. I was promised a new dress three weeks before the wedding. When I spoke with Allison about the dress issue and pushing the portraits back she assured me that she would do whatever it takes to ensure I had portraits at the wedding reception. She was so encouraging and helped lessen the stress of what was a very stressful experience.
Additionally, I wanted INCREDIBLE pictures. I wanted them to be perfect and capture incredible memories. Allison will get you your perfect pictures! She is great at giving her brides and especially her grooms great direction. Allison knows what looks good and how to get you the pictures you have always dreamt of on your wedding day.
Wedding photography was extremely important to me. I wanted the perfect dress and the perfect photographer! I did an extensive search for my photographer and included many different styles of photographer. Allison captured everything I wanted in my photography as well as had an incredible personality. I felt as if she really cared about me personally and wanted to make sure she captured every aspect of mine and my husband’s special day.
You don’t I can assure you that you will be blown away by Allison’s work. Her photography is so spectacular you will not be able to pick your favorite photo because there will be too many incredible photos to choose from.” —Kara R.
“I look at my photos daily! One of my favorite pictures of us is on my nightstand and I see it every morning when I wake up! I have several of the pictures from our engagement, bridal portraits and wedding framed throughout our home. When I see them, I think about how everything that went on with our wedding was perfect from start to finish! We had such a fun and amazing time planning the wedding, and Allison captured every finished product from each vendor in the pictures that we can look at forever!
Wow! Words can’t even begin to describe what an amazing and memorable experience it was working with Allison. When I saw Anne’s wedding pictures, I knew I had to have you! I had NEVER seen any of my friends have wedding pictures that looked like works of art; masterpieces like yours did. She is so easy to talk to and get in contact with. At our first meeting, there was no questioning if we were going to choose you or not; we signed the contract right then! Her excitement for life and love is contagious. Every time I spoke with her, she made me even more excited about our upcoming wedding. I will never forget seeing her arrive at The Mansion for my bridal portraits and thinking “Oh my goodness!!”.And the reaction on your face when she saw me tear up made me feel like we had been friends forever! Throughout the bridal portrait session, she made me feel like I was the most beautiful bride in the world! I couldn’t wait to get my dress back on for the wedding day after my experience with her that day! When mom and I were having such a hard time picking the bridal portrait that would be framed, she helped out more than you will ever know! And the slideshow that she sent to music was such an emotional experience; seeing me look the way I did was indescribable. On the day of the wedding, I was so anxious and ready for it to start. When I saw her pull up and walk in, I was overcome with excitement because she were so excited for us! She is such a real person and that made my experience with her even more enjoyable! I will never forget the day after the wedding, my dad saying “That was an amazing photographer you had! She was on the floor capturing pictures! I loved her!”And then when we saw the pictures, my breath was taken away! I couldn’t stop crying at how you had captured every single second of the wedding. And lots of things that I didn’t even notice or see! Because of her, we have been able to and will be able to relive our wedding over and over for the rest of our lives! Every time we look at the pictures, we feel like it just happened and that we are there that very moment!
I have given Allison’s information out to several friends saying “She is the best in the business! If you want the most amazing wedding pictures that capture your special day, then you must pick Allison!” One of my friends chose Allison as their photographer. When I saw her the other day after her wedding, she thanked me and gave me the biggest hug for telling her about Allison. She is one in a million and I am so very grateful that I was able to have her as my photographer. It was the best decision we made!
Wedding photography was the most important thing on my list when we were figuring out budgets. You spend so much time planning, thinking and picking out things to make your day unlike any other day in your life and you want to remember it forever. Having Allison as your wedding photographer can assure you that all of your work and time will be captured in a way you never thought imaginable that you will cherish for the rest of your lives! We chose Allison because her prices were in our budget (and I had decided after seeing her photographs, I would change my budget just so I could have her!), she was a dream to work with, the way she made us feel was so special and I will never forget her! She made my wedding the perfect wedding that it was!” —Cari J.
“I look back at my engagement and wedding photos about once a month or so. They never fail to make me smile and bring back such vivid memories of the best day of my life! I’m so thankful to be able to have them as keepsakes for the future.
I have so many pictures from engagement, bridals, and the wedding that I consider favorites. It’s so hard to choose. I really love the engagement pictures we took using a sword as a prop. Allison let us incorporate our personalities and have a ton of fun with the pictures. I also love the intimate close-ups and the way she was able to capture all of our facial expressions, even the subtle ones. I also love the pictures we took right after the wedding ceremony – we took a few outside in the dark and she set up the lighting in an amazing way. Those pictures turned out fabulously.
Working with Allison was so easy and enjoyable from start to finish! I felt immediately comfortable around her and her contagious laughter makes everything fun. She is both personable and professional and I really enjoyed all of my interactions with her as well as all of the photos and finished products. Even though she has lots of clients, she gives you her full attention and care. She was always dependable and on time, and easy to communicate with and clear about plans. I would recommend her to ANYONE for all these reasons and more. She’s a great person to work with and she has true talent in her photography.
Although I didn’t get too hung up on any one aspect of my wedding, the photography was one of the most important parts to me because I wanted to have great images to look back on in the future and wanted to be able to capture the special day to the fullest. I chose Allison as our wedding photographer because she was recommended to me by a friend’s sister who had used her for her wedding photography. By far this was one of my best wedding planning decisions and I was so pleased with both the process and the results!” —Rachel Z.
“We have some pictures that we printed and are in frames around the house. And I love having the album to look at to remember all of the details from the day – at least when our parents don’t have it to show off to all of their friends. My favorite image from the wedding was the one of us standing on the railroad tracks, where the wind caught my dress just right and you can see my shoes. It really captured the fun of the day and I love the light in the picture.
Working with Allison was amazing. She made the process easy and comfortable and your work speaks for itself. I have absolutely recommended her to friends – and all I have to do is show them her work – no words are needed.
Wedding photography was the most important detail to us, because it’s the only thing that lasts. The dress is in the back of the closet probably never to see the light of day. The flowers wilted and died, the cake never actually showed up, and I don’t even remember what songs were played. But we will have these pictures until we’re old and gray. We chose Allison because she does such a good job at telling a story and capturing all of the details that make the day what it is.” —Heather B.
“Not only are Allison’s pictures all over our house but they are on my facebook, all over my mother’s house, and my wedding album sits in the middle of our coffee table, so I see them everyday! I love to flip through the album and do so on a regular basis. All I can think about as I flip through is how amazing it is that she was able to capture the emotion of joy in a photo and I feel the joy of that day when I look at the pictures. It’s such a wonderful reminder of the most special day in our lives.
When I recommend Allison to people I continually tell them how easy and fun it was working with her. Carlo and I both felt that we were just hanging out with a friend who happened to have a camera. And she is just as professional as you are fun and friendly. We received a great product and had a blast doing it! I also think she instills confidence in her clients. I never worried that I wouldn’t get the picture I want or I wouldn’t have have beautiful photos and that confidence helped me relax – a much needed thing for a bride! (I also jokingly tell them I plan on using you for my 2nd and 3rd wedding…hopefully I won’t have to though haha)
Wedding photography was probably the most important thing to me when wedding planning and I was willing to spend whatever to get the best pics. At the end of the day, the #1 thing you will have to remember the details of your wedding is the photos so I wanted the best photographer to ensure the best memories. I got it.” —Alyssa F.
“Andrew and I have been married over 2 years now and we have looked back through every single wedding picture on each of our anniversaries. Allison did such an incredible job of capturing the immense joy and celebration of every single aspect of our wedding day, from the prep all the way to our farewell as husband and wife, that is is easy to relive the excitement and meaning of that special day. Aside from our anniversary, I frequently just sit and look through all of our photos with biggest smile on my face the entire time (I’m sure I look pretty goofy).
My absolute favorite picture is from our wedding. It is the one that Allison captured as Andrew saw me for the first time walking down the aisle coming to be united with him as his wife. I adore it because I feel it is such a true representation of how taken aback, emotional, and JOYFUL we, as Christ’s bride, will be the day He returns and we are truly united with Him!
Allison has a passion to bless others through the incredible talent that the Lord has gifted her with and it was extremely evident by the way she fully invested in me. She repeatedly went out of her way to ensure that Andrew and I were happy; so much so, that we felt as if we were her only clients at times. Allison’s laidback, fun personality balances perfectly with her organizational skills and focus on getting great photos. I loved having Allison around as the bridal party prepped for the big day; she is so much fun and such a joy to be around. I would and have recommended Allison to close friends of mine on countless occasions. She is not only a stellar photographer, but truly has her client’s best interests at heart and can be trusted 110%. I consider it a phenomenal blessing that Andrew and I not only found a woman whom I consider to be one of the best photographers around, but also found a friend. Allison set the bar extremely high and somehow still managed to far exceed it.
Wedding photography was one of the most important aspects I considered while planning our wedding for one main reason: the photos collected from a wedding day will be what are shared and reminsced over for the rest of your life. Andrew and I felt more than confident to trust Allison with capturing each and every important moment of this special day of ours. From mine and Allison’s first communication, her honesty and willingness to go above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day was everything we ever could have imagined was so evident.” —Marchele J.
“We got married in 2009, and I can honestly say, I still look at my photos all the time. I have them up in my home and I cannot pass them without smiling!
My favorite image changes all the time because there are so many simply gorgeous photos, but from our engagement photos, our favorite is one where we were kissing in the middle of the street with buildings from downtown dallas blurred in the background. The sun was setting and we are surrounded with this gorgeous golden light. Allison photographed us in a way that perfectly captured the moment and our love. Our wedding photos were no different. She has a way of capturing pure love, joy, and happiness that could simply be described as art. My favorite wedding photo is actually a sequence of photos from our first look. I’ve never seen our personalities so perfectly captured before, and she has this way of taking photos where you just forget she is there and she gets the true moments as they happen, uniterrupted, and beautifully.
Working with Allison was very streamlined, professional, and fun. I didn’t feel like I was talking with “a vendor” I felt like I was talking to a friend. She was understanding that I had bridal brain and took forever to get some information back to you, hehe! From the first time I spoke to her until I got my photos, she was an absolute joy to work with.
Wedding photography was extremely important to me because I know that you spend more time with your photographer than any other vendor, so I wanted someone who would be great to work with. I’ve been an artist of one sort or another my whole life, and having someone who was creative and understood my vision and improved upon that was priceless. Then there are the obvious reasons of why it is important… photos are your history, and I wanted someone who could really document this piece of my history with the love and care that they would their own life. For my husband and I, Allison was the perfect choice.” —Laura M.
“I look back at my photos very often! I have made three different albums with the pictures! I think about how incredibly happy my husband and I were that day and I am so glad we have it all captured on film to remember.
I was very pleased with my experience with Allison! From the very beginning she was always right on top of things and seemed to be just as excited as I was about doing the shoots! She was such an enthusiatic photographer and I could tell how much she truly enjoyed doing weddings! I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a wonderful and truly artistic photographer!
The photography was very important to me because when it’s all said and done, all you have left are your memories and the photographs! I was so impressed with Allison’s other customer testimonials and her work on her website. I could tell she felt the same as I did about the photography, that it was so important to capture every smile, kiss, dance, and hug to remember that special day forever!” —Joanna F.
“I look at my wedding photographs frequently! I have pictures hanging in my home and love to display our wedding album. They are all beautiful and people really enjoy seeing them when they visit. Allison’s website made it easy for relatives to order whatever images they wanted. It was so nice to not have to coordinate that after the wedding.
Allison made everything so easy and comfortable. It was a very relaxed environment and she knows how to make the best out of every situation. I am very shy, having her for guidance was the best experience I could have had.
Personally, the wedding photos were the most important element of my wedding and will be the only thing that I will really have forever. When hiring a photographer I chose to splurge and find someone I knew I could trust with this huge task. I’m so glad I picked Allison! She is incredibly professional and brought out the best in our engagement, bridals, and wedding photographs.” —Alex B.
“I look back at my “day after” photos quite often. My favorite image from our “day after” photo shoot is the picture of my husband and I sitting next to each other on a concrete ledge. I love it for its honest, simple elegance. First of all, it looks like us, it reflects how natural and happy we feel together. The cement and the diagonal line of the shadow in the background create a sleek modern, yet elegant feel. We have this image framed in our bedroom and I smile every time I see it. Sometimes I will simply browse through these pictures (they are my favorite to browse) and think about what a unique and beautiful thing my marriage is. I get to be married to my best friend and couldn’t be more more thrilled about it. The photos taken by Allison Davis reflect this joy and our love and friendship perfectly. I smile every time I look through these photos.
Allison’s joy is contagious. She makes you feel comfortable from the very begging. My husband are not exactly the posing type and we were not sure how the shoot would go as we stepped out into the 95 degree Texas heat dressed in our wedding best the day of our shoot. However, Allison’s conversation, her gentle but confident instructions, her confidence behind the camera all served to put us at ease very quickly. During the process I found myself forgetting about the heat and instead only focusing on the butterflies I feel in my stomach when I look at my husband. I have recommended Allison as often as I possibly can without being in danger of becoming belligerent. I truly Allison’s talent, passion, and professionalism.
Capturing wedding day memories is incredibly significant. Our wedding day was truly the first day of our new lives together and we want to commemorate this meaning of this event. I believe that Allison does an excellent job capturing both the unique love and relationship of each couple but also their story and the story of their wedding. The greatest compliment I could give to Allison is that she is an expert story-teller. She knows how to capture, not just static images, but meaningful moments that compile to tell the story of a couple’s love for each other.” —Maggie P.
“I look at my pictures all the time! I especially love my engagement pictures, because Craig and I don’t take very many pictures on our own, so it’s really nice to have some good pictures of us. Craig was a little uncertain about taking pictures at first, but Allison was able to put him at ease, and we had a great time. Allison did a really great job of coming up with different poses/ideas, and so we have a really wide variety of pictures, which is great. Craig and I both have very busy schedules, and sometimes it’s hard to find time to just relax and be together. When I look at our pictures, It takes me back to those memories, and I feel excited and in love all over again. From the wedding, I have MANY favorites, but I really like this picture because it captures my and Craig’s emotions so well, as well as those of my two brothers. My brothers and I are really close, and in the picture, they are looking on as Craig and I take our first dance as husband and wife. You can tell from the looks on their faces that they love, and are so happy for me. It’s very touching.
I would most definitely recommend Allison to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer. I would tell them that Allison is a truly special person. She has this real joy and enthusiasm for her work, and it’s impossible to not get wrapped up in her excitement. She is very warm and easy to talk to, and she has a way of calming your nerves and making you feel at ease during what can be a very hectic time. It’s difficult to explain, but you just know that everything will be perfect because she is there. Allison always made herself available to answer any questions we had, and was really good about responding quickly. She did a great job of finding out what was most important to us, and ensuring that we were happy.
Photography was at the top of my list. When all is said and done, pictures are the one thing from your wedding day that will last forever. You can spend all the money in the world on fancy decorations, and cake, etc, but without good pictures, the memories will slowly fade away. That’s why for me, it was really important to invest in a great photographer. I majored in photography in college, so I felt like I had a pretty decent eye for good work when I started looking for somebody for the wedding. I looked at countless photographers, but no one stuck out quite as much as Allison did. I enjoyed reading her bio, and felt that she genuinely loves what she does for a living. It was easy to tell from her pictures that she really put thought into each frame.
Some photographers will just take tons of pictures and hope to get a few good ones, but I got the feeling that each picture Allison took was very purposeful and I liked that about her. Not only does she understand the technical aspects of good picture taking, but she manages to capture the emotions of those around her, too, and make it look effortless. She is a real artist.” —Amy G.
“I look through our wedding photos about once every week or so. I look at our engagement and my bridal photos less often, but I looked at them more closer to when we first received them. I’m just reminded of how much happiness and love surrounded our wedding. There are a lot of different pieces of wedding planning, and some of them can be tedious or frustrating, but we just had a lot of fun with everything surrounding our photography.
Allison was lovely to work with. She was in touch soon after I emailed her, and she took time to listen to what was important to me and what my concerns were. She sent over a proposal–actually, two different proposals, I think–very promptly. Since I planned from out of town, I relied a lot on email (and phone, a little bit) rather than meeting in person. She answers to my emails always came quickly and were so nice, even when I felt like I was being a pest. And it was so much fun to spend time with her, both at meetings and when she was taking our pictures! I walked away from our meetings so excited and energized. And I know this will sound silly, but I feel like she is someone I would be friends with if we hadn’t met her as our photographer, which made me feel so at ease. She also turned around our photos to us very quickly after the events, which was so nice. In short, she was wonderful to work with — the perfect balance of professional, kind, and a lot of fun.
Wedding photography was very important to me, particularly the style of photography and the personality of our photographer. I think this goes without saying, but cost was a major consideration as well. For us, she were the perfect balance of all these things: modern, but classic style; very understanding of what we wanted; kind and fun, plus easy to work with; and I think her work is a wonderful value for her rates. When other friends ask me about wedding photographers, first, I recommend Allison, but then I tell them that there are a ton of photographers in Dallas at all different price points and with all different styles, and it’s all about finding the right mix of what you want. We just couldn’t be happier.” —Meggie G.
“John and I look at our photos all the time! We look at our framed pictures around the house and view our CD’s often. When I look at our photos I’m remembered by the events that took place at and around the photo sessions. The bridal pictures remind me of spending that day with my mom; that was a special day for us and I know it was a day she will always remember too. My favorite wedding photo is the of John and I amongst the tall trees in East Texas. Something about the picture says, ‘ahhh, finally!’ We look relaxed! When I see that photo I remember thinking, ‘We’re married and I can’t believe we’ve arrived to OUR reception!’
A co-worker referred us to Allison. We were told Allison was incredibly friendly, laid-back, artistic and made you feel comfortable to photograph. My friend gave a great description of Allison because that is what we experienced the entire time we worked with her. I would definitely recommend Allison to anyone in need of a photographer!
Photography was extremely important to us! We both wanted artistic photos that challenged the stiff, studio photos you traditionally see. Besides hearing wonderful things about Allison, we loved the style of her photos in her portfolio. The locations of the brides and couples varied and the people in the photos weren’t posed but instead looked natural. Her artisitic style combined with her friendliness sold us!” —Jennifer W.
