“Working with Allison was more than I could have ever asked for!"

She was phenomenal,  from the first time I reached out to her and explained our situation about wanting to elope and cancel our destination wedding, to wanting an adventure mini hike in Vermont with just a small gathering of our friends and family. She was ready to take on the challenge! She made us feel so comfortable while capturing all the important moments. She got great shots of us dancing on the streets in the middle of the mountain as well as wonderful photos with our friends and family during the ceremony, it was amazing! Ali is very professional, spontaneous and full of energy. I am so glad I reached out to her to be a part of our big day! 

Working with Ali was more than I could have ever asked for! 


She has done our family photos three separate times now and each time has been wonderful. She's so casual, makes you feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera, and really focuses on getting the candid real life photos, not just the posed ones (though she makes sure to always get at least a few nicely posed too!). I would recommend her to anyone!

Ali has been absolutely fabulous! 


Originally I had wanted to do a maternity shoot, but when baby came early Allison graciously let us switch it to a family/newborn shoot. She is so stinking fun to work with! We enjoyed every second!

We absolutely loved using Allison Macy Photography.


I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ali for a long time. As a co-worker, workout buddy, great friend and now I can add phenomenal photographer to that list! I was nervous of that day and can often not feel photogenic, Ali made me feel so at ease. We cried, we laughed, we reminisced and she captured both me and my husband so well. It felt intimate and I actually felt so beautiful. I can thank her for capturing one of my most amazing days. She will definitely be there for my future photo shoot to capture more love and laughter as my family continues to grow. Thank you again, Ali, so very much.

She is laid back and flexible, and knows how to put her clients, even kids, at ease. I'm so impressed that despite chaos, she captured beautiful photos. She caught all the small details that really represent us as a family. We loved our experience and our photos!

Allison was amazing at our family shoot.


We celebrated our marriage at the Formal Gardens on Shelburne farms, and although Ali was familiar with the property she also drove around before we shot to have various locations for recommendations (and drove us to the locations in her own car as well!). Our gallery is filled with...candid shots of genuine moments we shared as a couple–truly a gallery that tells a story of the day.

We are so happy with all the amazing shots and memories she captured on our special day and I highly recommend her expertise and talented eye to anyone looking for a photographer.

Ali was an amazing addition to our intimate wedding ceremony.


She made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and we had an absolute blast! Before the photoshoot, she spent a lot of time getting to know us, our style, and what we wanted from our pictures. Communication with her was easy throughout the whole process, and the photos came out better than we could have imagined! The experience of working with her was unforgettable!

Ali was so amazing to work with!

On top of the bright bubbly irreplaceable spirit & talent she brings to your wedding day, she is thoughtful, organized, ready to help you problem solve to ensure that YOU as a bride feel taken care of. I am encouraging you to stop reading about how much I love her because I could go all day, and you need to hire her ASAP!

Ali is exceptional!


...and effortlessly brings you out of your shell to escape the normal awkwardness that can come with being photographed! Her photos are beautiful, her energy is contagious, and you will never go wrong with choosing her as your photographer!!

Ali makes any session enjoyable...


We decided to get engagement pictures in Vermont while we were visiting and we loved Ali so much we asked her to come to Ohio for our wedding! She was great and very professional every step of the way! Everyone at the wedding kept telling me how much they loved her. The final photos were beautiful! We were so grateful to have Ali on our big day!

We found Ali by luck searching through Instagram and I am so glad we did! 


She really catered to us as a couple, while also adding her own artistic touch to each moment she captured. A photographer is truly the only person on your wedding day you spend the whole time with... Ali really made the day feel smooth, and captured each moment perfectly. She was present and... really allowed us to be our authentic selves when it was just the two of us. I will forever cherish the collection of photos she put together for us and would highly recommend her as your photographer.

We hired Ali 9 months prior to our wedding and she was the absolute best!


If you’re looking for one of a kind photos, Ali is your person! One thing I love about Ali is you can meet her for the first time or know her for years, she treats you like her bestie! Ali has a unique and creative way to capture your memories and I promise you won’t be disappointed. She stays true to what she loves, yet hears everything you want incorporated in your session. She’s flexible and understanding (trust me—a newborn and a dog in my photo shoot!!) and guides you through the entire process. I can’t thank her enough for capturing one of the best parts of my life so far, becoming a mom! Excited to have her capture more as my family grows. I highly recommend Allison Macy Photography!

Ali was the perfect person to take photos for our non-traditional elopement. The whole process was fun and easy (exactly what we were looking for), and the pictures really captured the beautiful spirit of the day. We could not be happier with the entire experience and I would definitely recommend working with Ali, especially if you are looking for really authentic and non-basic photography to capture special moments.
