let's get to know each other!

hello there,

Let's find a beautiful location - in a national park, on a mountain, by a lake, on your favorite beach - and create photographs that show not only the beauty of the destination, but the genuine love that beams out of your smiles like sunshine. Share your wedding dreams with me, and let's make it happen together.

Whether you plan to elope with just the two of you, or celebrate with two hundred of your closest friends and family, you want to have someone there for you, who can capture the genuine emotions and real, candid moments from every part of the day. Send me a quick message and let's chat about your wedding photography possibilities!

CAPTURING LOVE STORIES MAKES MY HEART SING

I want to be there to document every step of the way for you. Tell me about your favorite flowers, and why you chose them for your bouquet. How your grandfather gave you that pocket watch to wear on your wedding day. Tell me about your dog (who will be the cutest ring bearer this world has ever seen). How you are wearing your mother's veil, and how your sister will cry when you walk down the aisle. 

You and your sweetheart are preparing to celebrate an amazing moment - when you vow to share your lives together. Your relationship is one of a kind, full of sunrises and heartbeats, happy tears, road trips, stories that still make you laugh, favorite songs, and knowing a million little things about each other. Those details deserve to be captured. Your story isn't cookie-cutter; why should your wedding photography experience be?

A FEW FUN FACTS about me

"It does not matter the size of your special day, what matters are the memories. I thank Allie for capturing breath taking moments. She offers much talent and value to your special day. She is the best, her work is flawless. Thank you Allie!
Sincerely,
A Forever Customer! Xoxo"

"Using Allie made our wedding day a forever memory!"

"From the moment we met her, Allie was so welcoming and kind, even with us running 30+ minutes behind due to travel issues, she welcomed us with the warmest smile! Our conversation flowed effortlessly, like talking to an old friend. She was very knowledgeable of the location we did our shoot and picked some of the most amazing spots. Seriously our photos are so dreamy, we have to stop ourselves from printing our entire gallery, and gifting everyone we know with a picture of us! My fiancé doesn’t necessarily love taking pictures, lol, and he couldn’t stop saying how much fun he had during our session and when looking at our photos you can totally see that fun, and our love shining through!"

—  Kannon & Jermaine

"Thank you so much Allie for capturing some of our most beautiful moments!"

"My fiancé and I were so nervous and anxious about our engagement photos since we have never done professional photos. Allie made the experience even better than we could have ever imagined. She is friendly, professional, and can truly capture love and emotions in a photo like no one I have ever seen before. We cannot recommend her enough!"

—  Brianna & Ryan

"Allie is the BEST!"

"Every single picture was somehow more beautiful than the last one. We can’t even choose favorites!! After feeling disappointed for over a year about our original wedding photos (not taken by Allie), Allie was more than willing to help us "recreate" our wedding day through her magical photography skills. We finally have wedding photos that truly reflect how happy we are together, and how much fun our wedding day really was. Allie made us feel comfortable the entire time, her turnaround time was astounding (!!!), and she captured our love so beautifully, despite it being a slightly unorthodox, last-minute request. We will always, always appreciate the peace and relief those photos represent, and how absolutely happy they make us feel. Allie is truly the best!"

—  Jess & Jake

"We can’t even begin to express how much the photos Allie took mean to my husband and me."

"Allie is absolutely AMAZING!! I contacted her a week before our elopement and she was so accommodating. She made everything so easy and captured our day so beautifully, more beautiful than I could’ve ever imagined!! I’m so thankful we found her and she was available at such short notice. Thank you so much Allie ❤️"

—  Emily & Cary

"I would recommend her to all of my friends and family and would love to use her again!"

"Allie is AMAZING!! I can’t say enough good things about her. My boyfriend and I booked a session with her to do our first ever professional portraits. Normally, my boyfriend is a quiet guy, but Allie made us both so comfortable he was joking and laughing the whole time!! Our session was nothing but laughter, smiles, great conversation, and of course fantastic photos!!
Allie is such a sweet person, if you’ve never done professional portraits and are thinking about it, BOOK WITH ALLIE!!
You will not be disappointed ❤️"

—  Sarah & Ryan

"You made us feel so comfortable and as if we’ve known you for years! Thank you so much, again!!"

"We loved working with Allie. She was so kind and made us so comfortable. She goes above and beyond to get a good shot. She’s incredibly talented, up for all challenges and her positive attitude made what could have been a stressful day, very easy. I would recommend her to anyone no matter what your vision is.. she will find a way to make it happen ten times better than you would have originally imagined."

—  Leslie & Dylan

"You are so talented. Thank you for giving us such special memories."

"I couldn’t recommend Allie Dearie more! She photographed my wedding and to say she did a fantastic job is a drastic understatement. She was so knowledgeable about the types of photos she took, she knew how to get the right poses and make you instantly feel at ease. Not only did she get great photos, she got so many! There was a point in wedding where my wife and I went to look at our dessert table and there was no one around and no sooner were we there than we see a flash and Allie was there capturing every perfect moment!
She is super personable and very organized and professional as well. She got every kind of picture we wanted and the style of photos produced were perfect. Allie is also very quick with her turnaround with pictures. She answered every question we had from the beginning and until the very end. Everyone who was part of the wedding and who attended had nothing but amazing things to say about her and I couldn’t agree more. She is an awesome photographer and an even better person! Thank you so much Allie for capturing our day so perfectly!"
—  Liza & Ashley

"I will tell everyone I know - and everyone I don’t know - who is looking for a photographer to use Allie!"

"We were fortunate to have her photograph our wedding day in November 2019, and working with Allie was a dream. She is supportive, detail-oriented, kind and beyond talented. We are thrilled with the moments she captured, both staged and candids. Allie-- thank you for capturing our day so beautifully ❤ we adored working with you!"

—  Hannah & John

"Allie is amazing!!!"

"Allie is the best!! Not only is she professional and amazing at what she does, she is such a kind soul!
We booked her for our small wedding during the pandemic and we couldn’t have made a better decision! Our photos are timeless and truly capture the essence of our wedding day. I know we will be looking back on our photos for many years to come ❤️"

—  Amanda & Shay

"We highly recommend Allie to anyone and everyone that we talk to! "

Leave No Trace principles, conservation, and environmentally responsible travel + photography are very important to me.
As an elopement photographer frequently working in our national parks and wild places, I am committed to protecting our lands for the future.

I am a Proud Member of Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography, as well as a Leave No Trace certified photographer through the LNT Center for Outdoor Ethics.   

Creating a welcoming, safe space for ALL couples to share their love is one of my core values. The LGBTQ+ community is incredibly close to my heart. I'm here to celebrate you and your beloved, always.

I regularly work with several local Connecticut LGBTQ+ nonprofits, including Triangle Community Center

I am proud to be the Mystic Aquarium's Official Event Photographer for 2020!

They are an incredible organization doing amazing things for conservation and education efforts here in New England. I've been working with them for 3 years now, and aside from weddings, it is my favorite part of what I do!
