About us

you deserve to be celebrated on your wedding day

Moments matter. The in-between moments. The planned moments. The happy moments. The heartfelt moments. I approach each wedding day with two thoughts — “How can I best tell my couples’ love story in an authentic, creative, and remarkable way?” and “How can I capture the feeling of this moment?”

 

While I love guiding my couples towards the best use of time, space, and light that creates dreamy editorial portraits, I also enjoy taking a step back and allowing meaningful moments to unfold naturally and organically; Let Dad burst into tears seeing you as a bride for the first time, allow grandma have one too many glasses of champagne, and let your first dance with your partner linger just a little longer than you’d planned.

brief History of ALP

It all started with a gifted litTLE Canon Rebel and marrying the right person

My college sweetheart and I were married in 2014, exactly 2 years after he asked me to be his girlfriend, in an intimate ceremony with only our families present. Just weeks after our college graduation and wedding, we moved from our hometown of Virginia Beach, VA to a tiny town in Oklahoma so he could fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a USAF pilot.

 

I’ve always been a creative dreamer but with a shiny new and expensive Bachelor’s degree, I was eager to join the workforce — but I wasn’t happy. Long story short, with the encouragement and unwavering support of my hunk, I quit my day job and began pursuing my hobby turned passion of photographing couples in love professionally and never looked back.

I love what I do

There is something about being present in these very real and utterly special moments with you, that lights a fire in me. That’s my why. It would be my honor and privilege to be your photographer and capture those once in a lifetime, evocative moments for you.

 

In a world full of so many choices and perfectly styled feeds and pins, I see the beauty in the moments that really matter. I am dedicated to guiding and helping my couples create, navigate, and enjoy every moment of the day they’ve waited so long to come.

Abbey - Owner & Lead Photographer

Your wedding will surely be beautiful and every detail plays a part in telling your love story, but after the band plays that final song or all of your gorgeous flowers have begun to wilt, what are you going to remember? Tell me what makes your heart happy. I can’t encourage my clients enough to simply worry about nothing else but being present and allow me and the rest of the vendors you’ve hand chosen to take care of the rest. Be in the moment and in love. There is beauty in everything and I want to capture it with intentionality and lightheartedness.

 

I care a lot about animals and the planet and when I’m not squealing at my couples’ hotness on their wedding day, I enjoy cheering on the West Virginia Mountaineers, spending time with my cutie pie husband, Nathan, and our 3 rescue pups.

Remi - Associate shooter

Remi is the most loyal daddy’s girl who doesn’t really like to do much of anything but snooze and guilt me into throwing her ball for the zillionth time. She likes face kisses, sneaking carrots when I’m not looking, and The Bachelor. Her DNA test says she’s a quarter dachshund.

Chester - Office Manager

Chester is the sweetest certified Mega Mutt, mama’s boy who likes to be sure I’m always fully stocked with business necessities, like cuddles. He’s very good at protecting us from the mailman and when relaxing, he enjoys sunbathing, rubs of any kind, and splooting.

Ruger - editing specialist

Ruger is the newest addition to our team. He is a spicy little Chi/Pom/Yorkie mix who likes to patrol the office to make sure we’re all on task. In his free time he enjoys sleeping in his cuddle cup, riding in his backpack, and riling up the other dogs.

ARE WE A MATCH?

  • You believe your marriage is more important than the wedding
  • You connect with my work and words and think we’d hit it off
  • you’re refined but with a little bit of spice
  • Your wedding florals are going to be everything
  • You like dogs (okay, not really, but brownie points)
  • You’re expecting your guests to party like it’s 2008
