Allen Waterford is absolutely amazing at his craft. Not only does he produce amazing photos, shot after shot, but he has the people skills and professional understanding necessary to be a fantastic wedding photojournalist. Allen captures the moment in a way that only someone who lives their art, can. Allen was attentive and easy to work with. He fostered a personal connection with us as a couple and understood what made us unique. He was able to magnify our personality in a beautiful way and our engagement and wedding photographs are truly spectacular.
From our first phone conversation, I knew I had to have Allen as our photographer. He was easy to talk to, honest and attentive, and truly interested in what I envisioned for my wedding day. During our engagement shoot, Allen made us feel at ease. He took the extra time to make us feel special and when we drove away from our shoot, we knew we made the right choice.
Allen played a huge part in making our wedding day flawless. He was organized, on time, and ready for anything. He followed the timeline we discussed perfectly and worked well with our large wedding party and family. He recognized the shots that were important to us, but caught incredible in-the-moment shots that we could have never imagined capturing. Allen is very good at drawing out natural and organic moments with the bride and groom, the wedding party, and guests. Allen does an amazing job at blending into the background while not impeding the ceremony or reception. Allen is intuitive and a master of his craft. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their wedding photojournalist. I would recommend him to every bride.

From the very first time my fiancee and I spoke with Allen on the phone, we were impressed with his accessibility, his professionalism, and how much he already cared about our wedding pictures and making them as amazing as he could for us. Since we were planning our wedding from out of state, we did most of our communication via phone and email, but anytime we had a question, Allen or Karen would get back to us almost immediately. On the day of the wedding, Allen showed up to our venue 2 hours early just to make sure that the lighting was perfect, and he spent as much time as was needed to get the perfect shots without making my husband and I feel rushed or stressed in any way. He was able to handle a relatively large wedding party with professionalism and humor, and his assistant did a great job encouraging everyone and keeping everyone's energy up. I loved that he showed us some of the pictures as he was taking them, so we could see how awesome they were turning out. And he took some amazingly creative shots that we would never have thought of, but that turned out to be some of our favorites of the whole day. Even after the wedding, Allen stayed in contact with us, always making sure that we were comfortable with the process and making sure all our questions were answered. From beginning to end Allen was attentive, detail-oriented, and artistic, and as equally committed to the quality of his photographs as he was to ensuring my husband and I had an unforgettable experience.

Allen by far exceded our expectations! We got married in my home state which we no longer live in, and I was concerned about everything going as planned. Him and I spoke on many occasions and he assured me everything would be great. (I needed this!) When we met, I felt totally comfortable with him as did our wedding party and our families. Allen encouraged us to be ourselves and have fun, and he truly captured us as a couple. We had a few requests for pictures (some of them last minute) and he just went with the flow and did as we asked. Allen is as fun and outgoing as he is professional. He made sure we got exactly what we wanted. His eye for beauty is out of this world! We could not be happier with Allen and the gorgeous pictures he took.
