I’m Allison! I’m a full time destination wedding photographer, 100% in love with adventurous elopements and intimate weddings. I’m a hiker enthusiast, wife, avid thrill-seeker, dog mom and believer in blazing your own path. I’d rather be outdoors exploring a new (uncharted) trail, than going out for drinks downtown. I’ve traveled to several countries, been all over the U.S. and have photographed weddings worldwide, throughout so many of those incredible places.

I’m for the hikers, adventurers, explorers and trail blazers that want to chart their own path on the day they wed. You’re being given the excuse to be selfish – permission to experience emotional and physical freedom on the day of your wedding. You really can begin your marriage exactly how you want. You deserve it.

Not only am I your wedding photographer, but I’m also your planner, right-hand man, guide and friend. I’m here to make your dream location and images come to life, from the rad as heck day that you marry your babe. Experiencing two people commit their lives to each other in a way (and place) that truly reflects them, is absolutely one of the most incredible things.

I can’t wait to get to know you and plan a rad adventure together. I’m looking forward to chatting with you soon!

Oh my goodness, where to begin... Allison is one of the most amazing people either myself or my husband has ever worked with. She is genuinely passionate about what she does, and it shows in her work. Not only did she help us plan our big day, but she was always thinking ahead and coming up with questions that we hadn't even asked ourselves. The amount of research she did from day one of working with her was amazing. She was able to give us information not only on the park, but the surrounding area, and the best restaurants to eat at even though she was not from the area. Her drive and accountability were both characteristics of what we were looking for in a photographer, and she fit the bill perfectly. My husband and I would both highly recommend Allison for any photoshoot you can book her for. She guides you through the session and makes it feel so comfortable and effortless. If we could elope again just to work with Allison, we would!

You can stop searching now for a wedding photographer. Our wedding day was a complete dream & we honestly have Allison to thank for that! Due to COVID we were forced to cancel our original wedding plans & we were feeling pretty crushed about that in the beginning; we felt nothing could compare to our original plans. In one phone conversation Allison restored our hope & excitement! She is the full package; so much more than a photographer. Allison helped us to create and envision our dream elopement wedding (which we would 100% do all over again!). She is very thorough and prompt in answering all of our questions. She is extremely professional & knowledgeable. Hiking up Zion with her and her husband (as our officiant) was great! Super friendly & easy going. She was just so sweet & so prepared for anything; one step ahead at all times. She was able to keep us on schedule the entire day & really kept the day centered around us. She came prepared with all the things that you could imagine you’d need & with all the things you could have forgotten. Your day is something she takes very seriously, as if it was her own wedding day. Most of all she was just completely there for us when we needed her. THE PHOTOS. They are breathtaking & have us speechless. We can’t even choose favorites because they’re just all our favorites. She is certainly gifted & gave us the most precious photos to remember our day with. Allison was able to tell the story of our wedding day through her photos, capturing all the small and big moments as well as all the little details in between. She is worth every single penny. This is who you want to spend your wedding day with and who you want to trust to capture those moments that you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.

After realizing our original wedding plans weren't going to happen here in Minnesota (thank you pandemic), we knew we wanted to elope in Arizona but didn't really know where to start. The idea of planning another entire wedding felt extremely overwhelming until we found Allison. She's not only a photographer, but a planner as well. She made planning so easy every step of the way while making sure our day was exactly what we were dreaming of. She made the entire process stress-free and took so much off our plate! The day of was truly unbelievable thanks to Allison's planning. Allison was extremely organized, yet so laid back which made for the most blissful wedding day. Our parents both commented that it seemed like she was an old friend and we'd known her forever. We felt so comfortable in front of the camera and she truly captured the entire story of our day. We travel often and always say "the pictures don't do it justice." Allison's photos are quite the opposite. She truly captured how absolutely magical our wedding day was. It's honestly impossible to choose our favorites because they all are just beautiful. Allison is incredibly talented and we cannot recommend her enough!

Where do I even begin to explain how incredible Allison Slater is… I remember when I first started looking at photographers for our elopement, I was randomly scrolling through Instagram and BAM!!! I saw Allisons page and I knew my search was over. It had all the right feels from the warm glowy lighting to the authentic moments she captured. I knew we had to have her! The first telephone conversation we had with her was so much fun and sealed the deal, we absolutely fell in love with Allison. She photographed my now husband and I’s engagement pictures and elopement and at both sessions was truly an absolute pleasure to work with and made both experiences so easy, so fun and filled with so much magic! For our engagement shoot we had planned a July shoot at Superstition Mountain (I’m obsessed with the place) but right before our session the mountain caught fire and got so bad they had to close the trails we planned to shoot on. We had to make a backup plan. Allison being the rockstar she is scouted some trails and found another magical trail that had all the feels I wanted AND had Superstition Mountain in the background!!! I was beyond thrilled and grateful! At both the engagement shoot and our elopement day Allison came totally prepared with everything from snacks and water to a speaker so we could listen to music during (she even had “our song” cued up! She thought of every aspect of the day and was ready for anything. She was so easy to work with and made us feel like a friend we’ve known forever was taking our picture. The conversations we had with her were organic and full of laughter and happiness. She made us feel relaxed and comfortable so we could be truly present in the moment. I can’t even picture our elopement day without Allison being there. She made the day effortless (even with climbing a mountain in full wedding attire!). And our pictures… WOWZA!!! They are absolutely mind-blowingly amazing! I don’t know if I could be any happier with them. On top of being crazy talented, sweet, funny, personable and professional, Allison is quick! She had our elopement images back to us within 2 weeks!!! I could literally talk about how awesome Allison is all day. She is a dream to work with, easy to communicate with and a master of her craft! I can no thank her enough for our experiences with her and am already thinking of a reason for her to photograph us again! I would recommend Allison Slater Photography to anyone and everyone, trust me, you will be so happy you did! She is truly a gem.
