Allison is amazing at her job. She certainly has a talent and an eye for capturing the best photos possible. We were on a tight schedule since we had to be out of the Church by a certain time and we had MANY pictures that we wanted to take with our families. Allison did such an amazing job at organizing everyone and making it run unbelievably smooth. WE got all the shots we wanted and were out with over 10 minutes to spare. She is great on directing everyone to get the shot she knows will work best. Her turn around on the pictures is so much faster than other photographers that I have heard about. She even sends you a few shots within 24 hours on Facebook.
Allison was the most amazing photographer for our special day! She met with us multiple times prior to our wedding to lay out our plans. She was professional and answered all my dad's annoying questions. Allison was always available when I had additional questions and the day of everything went flawlessly! Her assistant did great with the boys ahead of time and she made it so much fun! We've seen some preview shots and i cannot wait to see the rest! The quality and love she puts into her work is clearly visable. Thank you Allison for making our day memorable!!!
I had a wonderful experience with Allison Maginn Photography. We hired her for our wedding and engagement shoot. Allison is very friendly and easy to work with. She is very organized and made sure everything went smoothly. She is also very detailed and responds very quickly to emails, which I really appreciated. Our pictures turned out AMAZING and so did our Album! Her prices are also very reasonable especially for the quality of photos and service she provides. I would highly recommend Allison Maginn Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. My Husband and I we very happy with her and all our wedding photos! A++++
Allison is one of the best wedding photographers I know! Over the last ten years I have been to and in A LOT of weddings. Comparing the photos of all those wedding, Allison's work is hands down the best. As a guest at the wedding she shot, I didn't even notice her there. And yet, when I saw the photos later there were great photos of everything that occurred, even ones of me I have no idea she had taken. Her subjects always look flawless. She is organized and on her game, but calm and collected, and puts everyone at ease. She knows how to position and make everything just right to ensure everyone looks their best, but without make it seem posed or awkward. If I ever get married, Allison's my photographer for sure!
When it comes to wedding photographers It turns out there is something beyond Perfect.
That's Allison Maginn !!
She is a cross between Ansel Adams and Annie Leibovitz with her own very special take on a very special day. Her color and black and white composition was amazing. Everyone that has seen the photos, instantly said this looks like a magazine shoot. I will stop there. We could not be more happy with the wedding day photos.
I really don't have enough good things to say about Allison and her photos. I was already able to see some of the beautiful pictures from the wedding and they are beyond incredible. She blended in so well with the ceremony/reception and definitely has an eye for capturing all the small little details and amazing moments. I will definitely use her for future events and would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer!
Allison was the quintessential professional! She made everyone feel very comfortable while capturing the moment...and with hustle!
Allison photographed a wedding I attended for Kipp & Mike. Kipp had always admired Allison's work, but originally, the dates did not work out. Kipp & Mike hired a different photographer and after their engagement session, they were unhappy with the photos. By good fortune, dates ended up changing, and Allison was free on the new date. Without an engagement session, they trusted in Allison's work and they were not let down. The images that Allison captured on their wedding day were beautiful, captured Kipp & Mike's spirit, and most importantly, the couple couldn't have been happier! On the big day, Allison was professional, timely, and super personable. She get the job done with a smile on her face. Kipp & Mike, Kipp's family, and wedding guests talked about Allison for months after the wedding. She's not there just to do her job; she's 100% there as support for the couple as well. Highly recommend Allison Photography!
Allison Maginn shot a wedding that I recently attended. The wedding was for 2 of my closest friends, and I know they couldn't have been happier. I was over at their place a few days after the wedding, and Allison had already sent over some shots from the big day as well as a slide show- the images were absolutely beautiful! I spoke to Allison for a few minutes during the event, and I found her to be extremely nice and very professional. I know that the next time I have an event I will definitely use her!
Allison was fantastic! She has a calm attitude and was always in the background but still gets all the important shots. Our pictures are amazing and she surprised us with the beautiful presentation of the CD. I've never seen such a nice case for a CD, she must have made it! It is wrapped with our pictures from the day. We got more than we expected with her.
Allison did both our engagement and wedding photos and the whole experience was amazing. Allison was accommodating to our busy schedules, always on time, professional and she helped us to relax in front of the camera so all of the photos looked genuine and natural. We have had numerous people compliment our photos and we could not be happier with them. If you are looking for a photographer who is both amazingly talented and fun to work with, Allison is THE photographer for you, hands down.
We were referred to Allison through a mutual friend who spoke highly of her as a person and as a photographer. We contacted her and Allison got back to us within minutes with a price quote and to schedule a time to meet. Once we met her, my husband and I knew instantly that we wanted her to be our photographer. She is enthusiastic about her work and genuinely interested in your wedding plans. She was great at listening to our ideas and providing feedback.
Before all the wedding festivities, I did a boudoir photo shoot with Allison and she made me feel beautiful and comfortable. For our engagement photos, we decided to ride bikes on the beach and Allison even jumped on a beach cruiser to participate in the fun. When those photos turned out awesome, we knew we were in good hands. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Allison communicated with us frequently about times, a shot list, what type of second shooter we wanted... so many details that never crossed my mind. Two weeks before the wedding she even met me at the venue (in 100 degree weather) to walk the venue and pick photo spots. When the big day finally arrived, we met Allison at the venue and she had already got all the detail shots done and she was ready for us. She was very friendly to my bridesmaids and family and they all loved her. She had cute ideas for bridesmaid photos and really captured the fun we were having. During the ceremony, I didn't even know that Allison and her second shooter were taking pics. They were unobtrusive and this continued throughout the wedding. They got great candid photos on the dance floor but it didn't feel like we had a camera in our face all night. Our guests reported feeling the same way and have raved about how great our wedding photos are. At the end of the night, Allison got a fantastic photo of my husband and me leaving through a tunnel of sparklers- a moment that can't be re-created and you only get 1 shot to get it right and she did! There is not a single thing wrong or off about the photo. It captures every emotion we were feeling and we look great too!
We spend a lot of time and money on our wedding and only have our photos and memories now. We are so glad that we hired Allison to capture the day and events leading up to our wedding because she is not only talented but she is a great person too! She was the perfect photographer for us!
I can't begin to express our good fortune in hiring Allison Maginn Photography for my son's wedding. Allison and her staff were well prepared, flexible with circumstances, encouraging with timeline constraints, extremely creative, and at all times very professional . She captured wonderful moments throughout the day, and we are more than pleased with the results.
I have been a guest at four weddings that Allison has photographed. I am impressed with her presence in the room...how she blends in with the guests and has a real joy of what she is doing. Allison is very professsional, friendly and organized...no sense of stress at all! The next day or two after the wedding she posts Allison posts sneak peaks, which is so much fun to see. The shots are so magnificent! Her creativity takes my breath away! A big thumbs up for Alllison Maginn Photography. She is such a delight!
Allison from day one put me at ease. When you are planning a wedding I feel you hire vendors and have to trust them. Some vendors you cross your fingers with and hope for the best. Allison gave me all the confidence in the world. My wedding is only going to happen once and I wanted the pictures to be perfect and that they were. My groom hates pictures and Allison made it painless. She was fast, organized, and patient. By the time the honeymoon was over Allison had 100!!!! Pictures for us to view and within a month we had 900 edited photos that were perfect. I would recommend and do recommend Allison to all the brides out there. I wish her all the best and am so grateful to her for capturing the love and excitement of my wedding! Thank you Allison!
Allison's work is gorgeous! She is creative and very professional. I am a long time friend of hers and have seen her work dozens of weddings and she is nothing less than amazing. Her eye for what will make a beautiful shot is spot on. I am always awe struck by her photography!
Allison was amazing getting the large groups together and taking wonderful photos! She really taught the moments and we were so happy with all of the photos! She is very talented.
One of the best things that we did was hiring Allison Maginn to be the photographer for our wedding. We cannot praise her work enough and an added bonus was that she is a delight to be around! She is extremely professional and quick to respond in all communications. She also frequently checked in on us and made sure to have thorough conversations with me on what photos we wanted to be sure to capture.
Her work is just beautiful, she has an eye for catching special moments. I also love that she appraoched photos from different angles so that you have different view points and everything doesn't all look the same. She makes sure to capture all of the important photos of the people but also the scenery and decor.
All of my wedding party and family members have commented on how much they enjoyed her demeanor and approach at the wedding.
Thanks to Allison we have beautiful photos to remember our special day!
Allison shot both of my daughters weddings this summer. She was so artistic and creative in poses and capturing the best lighting and backgrounds. I have recommended Allison to many of my friends. She is reliable and very professional.
Allison did my engagement photos in Manhattan Beach a couple years back and we are still making re-prints for all over our house. My husband and I met in MB so doing them there was important to us. Allison made herself familiar with the area beforehand and knew all of the best places to go. She also made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. Our pictures turned out so natural because of her direction and overall ease. We also just had a really fun time in general working with her. I would recommend her to anyone and have done so already. You will not be disappointed with her incredible work.
