About this Vendor

Allie Siarto & Co. Photography

My work has been described as “fresh, upbeat and beautiful.” I edit my work to look like film so your images won't look dated or trendy when you look back at them years later. With every session and wedding, I mix candid photographs with light direction and prompts (some lighthearted and some more sentimental) to make you feel comfortable and look natural. The whole team uses a mix of natural light and both on and off camera lighting to adapt to any lighting scenario.

Couldn't Be Happier!

Reviewed on 7/26/2014 Jessica T

My husband and I did extensive research on photographers in the Downstate Michigan area and after meeting with several different photographers, we ultimately chose Allie for several reasons. The first was, obviously, the quality of her photos-- she sent us albums for us to look... Read More through and we were thoroughly impressed. The second reason was her easygoing and cheerful personality-- it is obvious that she loves what she does and she made us feel very comfortable. Allie did our engagement photos last August and they turned out beautifully! I really appreciated that she took the time to look at my Pinterest "Engagement Photo" board and she saved some of my pins to her phone so she had a better idea of what poses we were hoping to capture. On our wedding day, Allie and her partner, Chris, were FANTASTIC! They made our friends and family feel completely at ease and they were so much fun! They were very accommodating and helped capture all of the special moments throughout the day. When our pictures came back, they truly took our breath away. The quality of Allie and Chris's work was beyond words and we would hire Allie again in a heartbeat. Not only is she a phenomenal photographer, but she is also friendly and professional.

Allie was so much fun to work with. She did a great job of getting a good mix of staged and candid photos and was never pushy about doing anything we didn't want to do. Her photos are absolutely beautiful and you can tell she genuinely enjoys being there. Allie followed the... Read More bridal party all day and it was almost like she was just another person in the bridal party - never at all uncomfortable. We also paid for her to bring a second photographer that day which I would recommend. While Allie was with us, he was elsewhere getting photos of family and friends that would otherwise be left out. I would recommend Allie to everyone in the area!!

Allie was an angel sent from the wedding planning gods. I had originally had a photographer booked who was a friend of my bridesmaids. Luckily for us (even though I didn’t feel very lucky at the time) she ended up backing out on us. I searched online for days for another...

And on the day of, I felt so comfortable in front of her camera. She felt like a friend with a bright and cheery spirit.

We had a wonderful experience working with Allie! She is an all around superstar - she takes amazing photos, is very personable, and is extremely on top of details/responding to emails/etc. She offers a registry so friends and family can contribute toward prints, albums, or...

Our photos and products were ready very quickly, and she followed up to make sure we were happy with everything. A pleasure to work with from beginning to end!
