What I say ... Just go to her website, alisonconklin.com and you like the rest of us will understand why you MUST have Alison Conklin for your wedding photographer. Her and her husband Geoff are so professional, prompt, and deliver on what they know best ... Pure quality!! My wedding day was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks to Alison, I have every moment captured by her brilliant eye. Absolutely amazing!!
EXCEPTIONAL! EXCEPTIONAL! EXCEPTIONAL! I am trying to grab the attention of all brides-to-be. You must be sure to book Alison Conklin as your photographer. While Alison may be holding a camera she is truly performing magic before your eyes. Alison's creative eye will take any simple scene and turn it into a MAGICAL- truer than life setting. Take the time to review her web site's blog and galleries and you will instantaneously feel that you were a guest at all of those weddings.
Alison's great flexibility and calm manner will keep the bride and groom, bridal party, et al at such ease that the most natural, unposed and candid photos will be yielded. I continue to be amazed at how Alison and Geoff (who assisted her at my daughter's wedding) were able to be there at all the "right moments" while not getting in people's way or view. I recently attended a wedding where the photographer was constantly blocking people's views, practically tripping us on the dance floor, and often shining bright lights in our eyes.
Alison's photography is IMPECCABLE, NATURAL,EXCITING, STIMULATING and just downright BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!
Any bride-to be- should consider booking Alison Conklin Photography as soon as you set a date. Utilize her packages fully and she will provide you with an exceptional and fun engagement picture session which will wet your appetite for what will be coming at your wedding. Your selection of her services as your wedding photographer will REAP you many rewards, as her memorable photos will immediately take you back to the feelings of wonder and excitement you had on your special day.
I cannot thank Alison enough for providing my daughter and then fiancee with a fun filled and creative engagement photo session. The resulting photos are amazing and required great creative thought and inspiration. I quickly saw that Alison was able to see Dara and Sal's bright personalities and great love for each other. This carried through to their wedding day where the pictures just draw you in and allow you to feel their joy and love for one another. I am so grateful that she placed a large sample of their wedding day on her blog, a short time after the wedding. Now that we have the full set of pictures I am so amazed by all the wonderful aspects of the day that she was able to capture, many that I, as mother of the bride was too busy to observe, or recall due to many blurred memories of the day. People always say that the day will go so quickly. Thanks to Alison and her creative eye, I will have all the wonderful moments of my daughter's wedding to cherish and revisit forever.
I also want to thank Alison and Geoff, for making us feel like VIPs. Their constant state of "calm" put us at such ease and enabled her to catch the bride and groom's and bridal party and guests "best moments" . You want to laugh along with them. While at the same time she captured Dara and Sal's great love for each other with some of the most romantic and touching pictures I have ever seen. These photos continue to bring tears to my eyes each time I look at them, now a few months later.
I know that my family's relationship with Alison Conklin Photography will be ongoing for many other important events in our lives.
Alison (and her wonderful husband, Geoff) are incredibly talented artists. I cannot express how grateful my husband and I are for capturing moments that we will treasure for decades to come.
Alison captures the MOST priceless moments, emotions and connections between people. I am truly in awe of her gift. She also somehow manages to take the most perfect photographs without ever being in the way...our families (and our entire bridal party) absolutely loved her.
Not only is Alison talented, but I guarantee that you will also want to become friends with her. She is one of the most perceptive, patient, cheerful, generous and kind people I have ever met...and she effortlessly puts everyone at ease around her.
I honestly cannot understand why any bride would choose a different wedding photographer - the images she captures are worth their weight in gold (just take a look at her website!) and she is an absolute pleasure to work with.
I am already excited to work her with again in the future when my husband and I have children!
Alison and her husband, Geoff, were amazing to work with! They are so sweet and professional and their work speaks for itself. They also responded very quickly to any questions that I had leading up to my wedding. I LOVE my wedding photos and could not be happier with my choice to ask Alison to photograph my wedding day.
Alison and Geoff are everything you imagine and more...
As soon as we became engaged Alison was our first contact to ensure availability. We initially chose Alison Conklin Photography for the beauty captured through her lens by using natural lighting, candid approach and creating a timeless style. You quickly learn, Alison and Geoff are much more than photographers with their down to earth personalities, personal touches, hands on guidance and patience; i would go as far to say day-of therapists.
Their calming presence, ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the lens is what allows those special moments to be captured forever with their beautiful touch. There aren't enough words to rave about Alison and Geoff, we love them and wish we had reasons to see them again! They are simply one of a kind, a power duo to say the least!
I've known Alison for several years and have worked with there professionally and privately. I can honestly say that I've never seen such an artistic twist to wedding photography as she has to offer. And she proves it over and over again! I recommend her to all of my clients.
We can't put into words how perfect the pictures were. They captured every detail that made our day special, they truly amazed us. We were surprised to be one of "15 inspiring Pennsylvania weddings" published in the Knots 2014 Fall issue for the Pennsylvania/Delaware areas, so apparently my wife and I were not the only ones who thought Alison and Geoff's pictures were amazing. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found them. We have no regrets and only memories to cherish now, forever, thanks to them.
We are so so so incredibly happy with our wedding pictures!!! Alison and Geoff make such an incredible team. First of all, they are the nicest people, and so accommodating and easy to work with!! We loved just having them as guests at our wedding!! Second, their talent is just unmatched. They have a remarkable ability to capture every emotion and every moment, and that made our decision so easy when choosing them for our wedding. The quality of their work is so far beyond anything we had seen, they are truly in a league of their own. Their photos speak for themselves. Each and every picture is so beautiful, and looks like it came out of a magazine spread. I can't even count how many people told me, "Your wedding pictures are the best I've ever seen!" We couldn't imagine the day without Alison and Geoff there!!!
Really there are no words for Alison and Geoff. They do an outstanding job. Not only are they really nice and easy to work with but their work is phenomenal. I've never seen more beautiful pictures in my life.
I cant say enough amazing things about Alison and Geoff Conklin. They were extremely patient and communicative throughout my whole wedding year preparation and I needed that from my vendors, especially my photographer. Throughout the tumultuous times that 2013 brought, Alison and Geoff were still there to support my husband and I to accomplish the most beautiful engagement and wedding shoot I could have ever asked for. They were recommended to us by a family friend. I just knew that they would be the perfect match for us because of their candid style and easy-going approach to what can be a very awkward thing. The pictures are truly unlike any others and I cant wait to see our wedding in SMP! I recommend them to all of my friends and I hope that you consider them as they are both as beautiful as the pictures they take!
We got married in Germany this August and despite the distance we hired Alison and Goeff. I knew Alison was the photographer I wanted to take my wedding pictures even before I was engaged or had even met my husband, for that matter. Even though I'm not particularly crazy about weddings in general, I had been following her work on her blog for years and I knew she was the perfect choice. Both my husband and I are incredibly happy with her pictures. Not only did Alison capture the atmosphere and the immense happiness we and our families felt that day but she and her husband Geoff also took the most amazing pictures of our guests, when they weren't paying attention to them. Our wedding day felt perfect to us and the pictures really reflect that. Alison simply has a way of putting a unique liveliness into her pictures. Actually, you should really check out her website and see for yourself, then you'll know what I'm talking about!
On a more personal note, Alison and Geoff are both really sweet, easy going, professional and very discrete. I hardly noticed her being around, taking pictures while I was getting ready, nor later during the ceremony.
Long story short, Alison is still my favorite photographer, even more so now, and I do absolutely recommend her.
At the time of my engagement, I was working for a local wedding magazine and was very familiar with Alison's incredible photography. I knew right away that I would love to work with Alison. Lucky enough, she was available for our winter wedding date. I can tell you with 100-percent confidence that it was one of the best planning decisions we made!
Here's why: Let me begin by saying that my husband and I are both pretty shy people. And personally, I've always felt very uncomfortable in front of the camera. Before meeting Alison, I even remember telling coworkers that I'd be happy if we had three or four nice shots from the wedding. However, after our first meeting with Alison, my husband and I both felt so at ease. Alison has such a warm, engaging and (best of all!) calming personality that you feel like she's someone you've known for years. She's exactly the type of person you want around on such an emotional, nerves-filled day!
On the day of the wedding, Alison and her amazing husband Geoff were such a pleasure to work with and be around. I honestly feel like they were part of the celebration, experiencing and capturing all of the happy moments with us! I never once felt under the watchful eyes of the camera. (Which means not a single picture with forced, uncomfortable smiles!) After the wedding, multiple guests even commented on how lovely and unobtrusive they were. In fact, one of the things I like most about Alison's style of photography is that she doesn't shoot overly pose-y pictures and instead strives to capture very natural, candid moments. Because of this we have so, so many beautiful pictures (and not just of us—but of our family and friends and of all the little details that made that day so magical) that really recreate the pure joy and emotion of that day.
One last thought: I have multiple friends who've waited months (some as long as year!) to get their pictures. Alison's turn-around time is truly remarkable. My husband and I were able to look at an online gallery of our shots just days after the wedding while on our honeymoon!
I cannot thank Alison and Geoff enough for the wonderful shots—and the lasting memories—we have as a result of their hard work!
Working with Alison & Geoff was truly one of the most enjoyable, peaceful, and memorable experiences from our wedding. To say we adore them would be an understatement. From the moment we first met Alison and had the honor of doing our engagement pictures with her we knew we were so lucky! She is so easy going, fun, genuine, and most importantly...an incredible talent!
Our wedding pictures are a a DREAM! This team expresses true artistry through the lens. They have an eye for the most stunning/unique images. Their ability to capture people and read emotion is inspiring!
There is no doubt Alison would provide you the most wonderful epic shots from your special day. Even more so, you will be left feeling as though you have a wonderful friend by your side helping you create and capture your fairytale!
Our appreciation for them grows each time we look at our pictures. Alison Conklin was hands down one of the best investments we made for that special day.
We are forever grateful!
I simply have no words to sum up how incredible Alison and her husband Geoff are. These two are the most humble, down to earth, talented team of people I have ever met and we now have phenomenal engagement and wedding pictures to cherish for the rest of our lives.
Not only do Alison and Geoff shoot absolutely breathtaking shots (they will make you look good no matter what!) but, they have a way of capturing every single detail and emotion of your big day without you even knowing they are there.
They made the process for us so easy; returning emails right away, recommending fun locations/ ides for our pictures, and making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Their pictures are truly something out of a fairy tale, but now it's your fairy tale.
Alison Conklin Photography is the best of the best, look no further.
Alison is an incredible, talented, creative, and professional photographer. Actually, this space does not even give me nearly enough room to say all the great things about her. She truly has a gift and sees things with an artistic eye that is beyond other photographers. Her pictures display the most detailed parts of any special occasion. Her work not only captures people in the most flattering (yet natural) light but she is also able to portray personality. Not only will she go out of her way to make things go smoothly but anyone will automatically feel comfortable around her as she is very laid back and relaxed. You won't even realize what a genius she is at work until the pictures come back. She is one word: sublime.
You’ve probably read it multiple times that Alison was the first vendor I booked and the like, but when you have someone as talented as Alison to document your wedding day, you know it has to happen. Like many of the other brides, Alison was the first vendor I not only booked, but also contacted after my engagement. My now husband laughed at me at the time, but I emailed Alison after being engaged for no more than six hours. Her work is perfection. Whether you look at her blog or her albums, you can see the passion and love that goes into her work.
Everytime I look at the wedding photos, I am reminded of another emotion, memory or aspect of our wedding day. It seemed to go by in the blink of an eye, but the photos capture the moments that made the day so special. From the candid laughing shots to the first kiss, they all evoke different yet important memories of the day. The photos are elegant yet realistic. They not only capture a memory but also a feeling.
One of my favorite things about Alison’s work is how nothing feels forced. Upon meeting her officially for the first time for the engagement shots, she immediately felt like an old friend. She took the time to ask questions about my husband and myself as she was taking our photos. You can tell the level of comfort by the lack of forced expression on our faces. Everything she does is amazing. I keep wondering how she is going to top some of her best work, but she does it again and again.
Thanks to a friend's eye, I found out about Alison Conklin well before I was engaged, and came to love her work through her beautiful blog posts. Once my husband and I got engaged, we knew that we wanted photographs that captured our day with authenticity and an artistic eye, and I emailed A&G, I'm only a little ashamed to admit, a few weeks before my husband even proposed! And because we were able to get in touch early, Alison's husband and second-shooter Geoff was even helpful enough to suggest some venues over email. (We live in Pittsburgh and got married in the Philly area, and were doing a lot of long-distance planning.) Totally above and beyond the call of duty, and a huge help.
We met Alison and Geoff for the first time when they came all the way to Pittsburgh for our engagement pictures, and we had a wonderful afternoon. We wandered through two of our favorite neighborhoods here, and A&G were game for it all. It was a fantastic first opportunity to meet them--and it only solidified for us that we'd made the right choice.
When it came to our wedding: I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were! Both Alison and Geoff covered the day from beginning to end, and took photos that moved me to tears when I saw them (and just days after our wedding, too--Alison was super professional and prompt with all things!). We had not a single issue, and in terms of service, could not have been more impressed with A&G's professionalism. (And, also--they're really, really fun.)
There was a moment in our reception, right after the (great, but also) overwhelming cocktail hour, our first dances, and our dinner, when A&G came up to us and stole us away for some pictures right at sunset. This is one of my favorite memories from our entire wedding--a chance to breathe in some peaceful, quiet spring air with my new husband, just hanging out with our awesome wedding photographers. And the photos they got from this brief moment as the sun was setting are some of my favorite from the day.
I would recommend Alison Conklin Photography to any couple looking for a photographer (not just wedding, either--I love her family portraits!). I think she's a mind-reader. Having been a fan of her blog for years, I swear that she has an uncanny ability to sense the style and personality of her brides and grooms and match her photos to their exuberance or their peacefulness, their wild wedding receptions or city-hall elopements. As a bride who cared more about selecting this particular vendor than nearly any other in the entire process, I could not have been more thrilled with every aspect of this relationship!
Alison Conklin Photography did an amazing job capturing our wedding day! Her and her husband were very friendly, professional, easy to work with, and very responsive with emails/calls. She had very creative ideas and very responsive to our ideas. She blogged a few of our pictures within 1-2 weeks and I had all the photos within 3 weeks. Alison Conklin Photography is definitely worth every penny!!!
I can't say enough about Alison Conklin! She was an absolute joy to work with, from the very first email to the delivery of our album. My photographs bring me to tears every time I look at them. They captured all of the special moments of our wedding day so beautifully. She is friendly, caring, and so fun to work with. Her talent and creativity are beyond incredible. She truly is the best in the business!
