Alison Marie Photography is a Western MA outdoor wedding photographer offering natural & emotional wedding photography services to our clients. We are available for travel to the Berkshires, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine & Beyond!

Your wedding is an important day. Choosing a wedding photographer is not only a big decision, but also a big investment! You should be getting the personal attention you deserve. That is why I book less than 15 weddings per year. I want to make sure that I am giving my couples my attention & the best wedding experience possible.

When choosing a wedding photographer, you should take a look at their portfolio to be sure their style of imagery & editing is consistent with what you are looking for. My style is clean, candid & timeless. I love capturing my couples when they are making real connections. You will not see me doing the latest fad that is popular on pinterest or cheesy poses, as I want my photography to evoke genuine feelings of love & affection. I do not try to re-create moments & will always let the details of your day happen naturally.

I will also help you throughout your planning process with timeline suggestions, organizing your formal list, & more! That way you can go into your wedding day feeling confident & be able to focus on the things that are truly important... like enjoying yourselves!! Let's set up a time to chat & make sure I am a good fit for your needs!

Wedding Collections start at $3000.

Please contact me for intimate wedding, destination wedding and elopement pricing. Alison Marie Photography also offers albums, prints, and canvas that will make for a beautiful first family heirloom.

Emotional wedding photography


Why hire a professional?

I hate to throw it out there, but you know that saying "You get what you pay for"? It's very true. I do not recommend skimping on your photographer. Lets start with experience... the fact that a professional photographer has been to many weddings is quite handy! Knowing how much time you can spend on each part of the day and helping with a timeline, knowing where to be to get the best photo, and not to mention knowing his/her camera. It seems that everyone can afford a fancy camera these days, but the question is whether they know how to use it? You don't become a wedding photographer over night and owning good equipment doesn't make you one. I am constantly learning in this business & trying to hone my craft to provide the best service I possibly can for my clients.

How many images will I receive?

50 images an hour is a good rule of thumb. I include all of the great images and edit out any duplicates with poor lighting or missed expressions. I want you to have a collection of images that best shows the story of your day.

How soon will I get to see our wedding images?

I like to get a couple teasers up fairly quickly... yep, I'm a nerd like that! I can't help it! I get excited about my photos & want to show them! I will normally show teasers on my Facebook page the day after your event. You will also receive a link to a "favorites" gallery one week after your event. The rest of your images will be ready within 8 weeks of your event date.

Will our final images be watermarked?


Should we do a "First Look"?

Ummm... YES!!! No really, I do encourage a first look, but it's ultimately up to you! In my professional opinion, I feel like a first look helps a ton with nerves, the timeline, and just all around enjoying your day... because that is the whole purpose right?! Every single couple that I have photographed that has done a first look, seemed more relaxed. When you allow time beforehand for your portraits and the family formals, there is no rushing later. No rushing = less stress!!

Are you available to shoot extra hours?

Yes. We will go over your timeline ahead of time, so we will already have an idea if you will need extra hours or not. I will never try to sell you on extra hours if you don't need them.

Do you book more than one event in a day?

No. Never. 

Can I send you a link to my pinterest board of photos I like?

It’s my job to capture all of the moments & details of your day and do so in a way that is special to you. If you don’t see the photos you are envisioning for your engagement session or wedding on my website, then I might not be the right fit for you. I will take a look at your Pinterest board to get a sense of what type of images you are drawn to but I will not recreate a photo. It’s incredibly important that you trust me as your photographer. My job is to capture the beautiful things that are unique to you and are happening right in front of me. So, if you give me the freedom to be creative and photograph the story of your day, you’ll receive all the photos you expect and more!

I'm ready to book. What's the next step?

Awesome! There will be a 30% non-refundable retainer with a signed contract to book & reserve your date on my calendar. Your balance will be due 4 weeks prior to your event date. Alison Marie Photography accepts cash, check, & credit cards through paypal.
