& working with me
helping you craft an adventure session that is authentically
Helping couples plan their engagement shoot or adventurous elopement is such an honor. You love the outdoors - so naturally you want to include an outdoor adventure into your wedding day or engagement session! Your Mountain Moments is for you if you aren’t afraid to summit a mountain at sunrise, camp at an alpine lake for your elopement, or thru-hike the Colorado Trail. I’m all for it, and I’ll be there to support you through the planning process and your epic day!
I’m such a hiking nerd that I actually have spreadsheets dedicated to all of the places I would love to hike and shoot! I’m not just an expert in Colorado: I’m an expert in hiking. Since I’m always on the go with my van, I’ll meet you where you are! If you have a vision, I want to help bring that to life: whether it’s in Colorado or around the world.
There are varying levels of adventure, but as a photographer coming from Colorado: when I say adventure, I mean it!
If you and your partner want to conquer a 13,000 foot mountain, trust that I will be right there by your side. Your idea of an elopement or engagement adventure might also be an accessible lookout for sunset! My job is to help couples adventure in a way that is authentic to YOU. So what does that look like? With my expertise, we will figure it out together!
You can count on me to be here for you for your adventure elopement, every step of the way.
more than just a photographer...
client love notes
"Allyson is an amazing photographer! She made me feel so comfortable and confident. Allyson truly captured who my fiancé and I are, and the love we have for each other. She is so warm and bubbly. Instantly we had a connection with her, and it shows through her photos. Allyson is so knowledgeable in photography, lighting, and atmosphere. She also knows every hike in Colorado! It made our adventure engagement shoot absolutely perfect!"

include your dog in your photo session!
I’m a dog lover! You can even find my dog, Maggie, on Instagram! One of the things I love the most about adventure photography is when couples can include their furry friends.
I’ll let you in on what Colorado locations are dog friendly, and how to incorporate your pup in your photos in an organic way. Your doggo is a part of your family, and having an adventure photoshoot with your dog is a great way to commemorate that.
How will I receive my images?I deliver all images through Pic-Time online gallery service. The gallery will remain online for 365 days. You will have all that time to download, order, and share your images.
Will my photos be edited?Yes, they will be! When you receive your online gallery, all photos will be edited. I do not deliver any raw or original files.
Can we meet you before our shoot?Absolutely! I love (and prefer!) to meet you before the shoot. Let's plan your session doing something you enjoy, rather that be meeting up for beer, hitting the ski slopes, a quick facetime session or a hike! And, if you have any questions along the way, I'm just a text/phone call away.
How long does it take to get my edited photos?My typical turnaround times are as follows: - 1-3 weeks for engagement/adventure sessions - 4-6 weeks for weddings And, I always send a sneak peek gallery within 48 hours!
My dog doesn't like new people, can you photograph them?YES! Absolutely. I have a reactive dog myself, and want to do everything I can to make your pup comfortable. If you'd like to book a session, reach out and let's talk about what success looks like for your furry friend.
Do you offer payment plans?Yes, absolutely!! I typically require a 50% deposit to lock in your time and the remaining amount is due prior to gallery delivery. That being said, I'm happy to discuss a payment plan and schedule that works for you.
I'm not a big hiker...can I still do a session with pretty views?FOR SURE!!! If you aren't a big hiker yourself, or if you are hoping to include family & friends for your session, I will always make recommendations based on your unique situation and requests. I've spent tons of time exploring the state of Colorado and beyond, and I love helping you find a location that makes sense for you. You don't have to climb a mountain to get epic views - and that's why I'm here, to help you find that dream backdrop.
What do I wear to my session?When you book a session with me, I will send you my Pinterest Board full of outfit inspiration :) I want you to feel comfortable and confident on the day of your session, and I'm here to help with that every step of the way.
