    We loved working with Alison! She is very laid back which made us feel comfortable and relaxed on our wedding day. She took beautiful photos and captured our perfect day so well.

  • Nicole

    I was extremely nervous to be photographed and my husband even more so. Alison sent us a few tips prior to meeting that really helped us focus on other things rather being photographed. She was so easy going and made the experience fun!

    Our favorite part of our wedding day was listening to the speeches made. Four of our closest friends and family spoke and every single person made us laugh and cry. Alison captured amazing photos of just pure joy from us and our guests.

    Our wedding photos are so special to us right now because our daughter now absolutely loves to look at them! She loves to talk about mommy’s pretty wedding dress. I love to tell her stories from that day. It is so special to see her smile when she looks at pictures of Chris and I all dressed up and so in love. We would say CHOOSE Alison! She is the best and goes above and beyond! She is so open to your suggestions and offers great tips!

  • Sarah and Matt

    The reason I fell in love with Alison’s work, is how she is so creative in using the natural light when it comes to capturing those special moments throughout the day. You were fabulous at helping us remain calm and at ease.

    Ali did an amazing job as our wedding photographer! She captured the best day of our lives in a way that you can truly feel the fun and excitement of the entire day. We wanted amazing photos of our favorite people in our favorite city, and she did not disappoint. We initially felt a little uncomfortable and awkward being photographed, but working with Ali during our engagement session immediately helped to put us at ease. She is laid back, and gives you great direction which results in amazing photos. Also, sitting down with her beforehand to create a plan was extremely helpful, as it eliminated any added stress on the actual wedding day. Your wedding day flies by SO quickly, and we always say we wish we could go back and repeat the day… but getting our photos a few weeks later was so special, because we are able to re-live the day over and over. We would 100% recommend Ali to anyone!

      We are so happy we went with Ali as our photographer! Our photos turned out amazing and Ali made Matt and myself feel comfortable! I told her my vision of the day and the photos reflected exactly what I pictured. She also gave us our images very soon after. I have already recommended Ali to friends and family!

    I would highly recommend Ali to any friend of mine. She goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and has a great eye and ideas for how to make your shoot amazing. So far we’ve just had our engagement photos done but we can’t wait for the wedding day photos. She nailed our vision for the engagement photos by incorporating the history and charm of Philadelphia.

    We were admittedly a little nervous/shy about being professionally photographed for the first time but she really tries to understand you and gives you ideas on how to feel as comfortable as possible. After the first couple rounds of photos we started loosening up a little bit and it really led to some great photos from there on as you could tell how much more natural we look in the photos. My favorite part was when she actually climbed a tree to get some incredible shots from above, through the cherry blossoms. Highly recommend.

  • Claire Wilson

    We had a wonderful experience with Ali! She connected with us personally to get to know us before our wedding and made us feel so comfortable on our day. She is warm, friendly and lovely to work with. We loved how she captured special private moments between us throughout the day and absolutely love looking back at our photos. We would highly recommend her!

    Our wedding day was an absolute dream because of Alison!
    We knew from the start that we wanted our wedding to be as low-stress for us as possible, since we were flying in to Philly from California just a few days prior. From our very first Skype meeting with Ali we felt immediately at ease. Her attention to detail and organization skills are second to none.

    I knew from the beginning that I wanted our photos to highlight some of the beautiful landmarks that make Philly so great. My vision encompassed SO many locations, however, that I was nervous we would never fit it all in, or that the day would turn into a circus. Not a problem for Ali!

    She made a detailed schedule, mapping out the distances between locations and time required to shoot each one. I did not feel stressed for ONE second as Ali took charge of our trajectory. I got amazing photos at each and every location my heart desired. We have Broad Street, City Hall, the Art Museum, Wawa, and my favorite dive bar hidden on Sansom Street.

    My husband was very nervous to be photographed and initially felt he would be uncomfortable. To be honest, he looks uncomfortable in 99% of the photos ever taken of him. (He reminds me of the episode of Friends where Chandler can’t smile for photos.) With Ali and her partner Nick, he was SO at ease. I felt the photos really capture his true personality because he was so relaxed and comfortable.

    When we got our photos back, I honestly felt that they were everything I wanted and more. Ali perfectly understood our vision of classic, old-school Philadelphia city glamour and captured it exactly. With Alison Leigh, you get both a skilled coordinator and exceptionally talented photographer. She made our day perfect!

    Ali was so wonderful to work with that I am constantly recommending her. She made my husband and I feel completely comfortable and made the experience fun. Our pictures turned out amazing with a perfect mix of candids and formal pictures. My biggest fear was having cheesy wedding photos but Ali did not take one! Ali perfectly understood our winter wedding vision and thanks to her we can relive the amazing day whenever we looks at her awesome photos!

  • Gina May

    Ali was an absolute pleasure to work with. She communicated very clearly throughout the planning process and we received our photos in a perfect timeline.

    My husband especially was anxious about getting his photo taken and she made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Our engagement session really helped us prepare for the wedding day.

    I wanted our photos to be very romantic, yet glamorous. I wanted mostly candids with a few traditional family photos mixed in– we received exactly that. I also wanted photos of our guests enjoying the party and was so happy to get that wish fulfilled. I’m so glad Ali captured our ceremony so beautifully, as that was especially important to me.

    Ali has a great sense of style, which you can tell just be looking at her work. I would recommend her to anyone.
