Shadow on the Wall

hey, I'm Allison

I'm a dreamer + artist with Southern California roots currently nestled in the foothills of Northern California with my husband and munchkins. I have a love for  warm waters, sunkissed skin and  golden sunsets  On a typical day you can find me wrangling the kiddos and finding any reason to get outside


I love capturing the connection between people.

The way people naturally communicate through words & movement. Freezing time to make you feel something again and again, like when you hear your favorite song.

The ones who are simple & laid back, down to earth with a soul little wild but firmly rooted... Appreciating details and a good time with their family and friends. The ones that realize a wedding is more than just a piece of paper. Because after all is said and done, your memories & marriage are all that remains, and preserving that is most important.

providing you images that'll remind you just the way the day felt. 


I love to create and capture real emotion and natural connections with minimal posing and simple guidance. I get excited for easy going couples & families who aren't afraid get a little dirty and not stress about who is or isn't looking at the camera
