Allison Dobbs Photography
photographer and story teller
Based out of Colorado and madly in love with the mountains, I am a photographer and story teller specializing in adventurous couples, elopements and intimate weddings.
What do you consider your style to be? I strive to create the feel that fits best when finalizing a client's gallery, but I always stick to real colors, distinguishing contrast, and true tones. Utilizing natural light, capturing the candid moments, and telling the story is always my approach.
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? Couples who are celebrating each other above all else! Those who create a wedding day together, focusing on what both people agree is most important while remembering at the end of the day, all you need is each other! And if you love to hike a mountain, get your dress a little dirty, don't mind some of that Rocky Mountain weather - that's a bonus!
How did you get started in the wedding industry? When I moved to Colorado 5 years ago, I started photographing adventure sports and landscapes. I quickly realized I loved having a bigger story to tell with my photos. There is no better story than someone's love story. And after realizing the wedding industry is not only ballrooms and black ties (especially in the Rocky Mountains), I was inclined to find the couples who were seeking something a little different so that I could help tell their story.
What is your favorite part about a wedding? The story of a couple is always guaranteed to be unique. Whether it's told through toasts, by the officiant, or through personal vows to each other as they stand alone on a mountain. Watching a couple tell their story and share why they've chosen each other is definitely my favorite part of a wedding. Capturing the real emotions through those moments is my number one goal.
