Hi there! I’m Allie, your intimate wedding & elopement expert + cheerleader. Photographing love stories is what makes my heart sing! I’m here to help you plan YOUR perfect wedding day. Let’s include the details that make your relationship special – your dog or cat, where you had your first date, your favorite local coffeeshop, your love of kayaking or hiking or art museums, your favorite song – and craft the BEST day ever to celebrate the two of you and your love.

I am based in Palos Verdes in beautiful¬†Southern California. I’m also available to travel wherever your next adventure leads! My style is warm, authentic, and candid. I’m also ordained, so if you want someone who can hike to the top of a mountain with you, photograph your ceremony, AND make it official – I’m your gal!

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, and knowing a million little things about each other. Those details deserve to be captured, and I would be honored to be the photographer documenting those memories for you.

We eloped in Yosemite, so all of the California national parks hold a special place in my heart. Some of my bucket list elopement destinations include Scotland, Japan, New Zealand, the Dolomites, and Switzerland! Thinking about a destination elopement, but not sure where you’d like to go? Let’s chat about your options! Proud to be a Leave No Trace advocate and an LGBTQ-friendly, Equally Wed Certified wedding photographer.

Allie Dearie photographed our engagement and wedding! She's incredibly talented, not only in regards to her finished work, but in the way she treats her clients and makes them feel so special and comfortable in front of the camera. She was so patient with my wife and I as we learned to relax in front of a camera for our engagement shoot. At our wedding, she perfectly captured the magic of the day, and did so without us ever noticing!! Allie is truly a professional and excels at what she does. Hire her.

There aren't enough stars to give Allie! She is genuinely interested in getting to know the couple and has the most positive, bubbly personality. She is extremely flexible and truly wants you to have the most perfect day. She is great at scouting out different photo spots and suggesting poses (for those non-photogenic people). Our pictures turned out beyond amazing and we wish we could elope again to work with Allie because she was just such a ray of sunshine on our day!

Continue below for a very long review, but the short version is that you should stop looking anywhere else and book Allie for your wedding/elopement/engagement photography.

Allie has been absolutely amazing from start to finish. I was so impressed by her even from the very start just getting to know her and her story. She is so kind and invested in making your day perfect from start to finish. My husband and I were really nervous as we had never been professionally photographed before, but during our engagement shoot she made us feel so comfortable (and even helped hold and wrangle our dog!) and we had a great time. It made us not have any stress about what the photos would look like going into our elopement having met her and having done the engagement shoot with her before the big day.

Allie is the definition of someone that is easy going and amazing to work with. She arrived very early in the morning for our ceremony in a remote area in Yosemite, hiked 9 miles with us during the day, and worked late into the evening to take sunset photos with us. Our friends and family all loved her and she was an absolute champion carrying heavy camera equipment all around Yosemite for 10+ hours.

Once we got our photos we were blown away (I literally cried tears of joy at how amazing they were). The photos she took are absolutely stunning. Every single moment was captured so beautifully and authentically. Our dream and vision for our wedding photos was to let Yosemite's natural beauty shine, to capture our pure joy and excitement to be married, and to have photos we want to print and hang in our home. Needless to say, she fully delivered.

I'm an adventure taker, daydreamer, and National Park lover. One of the dreams that I'm currently working on is my goal to visit + photograph all of the national parks in the US. (31 down, 32 to go!)
