Hi, everyone! I am Allison Bolsega, the proud owner and photographer here at Allison Bolsega Photography. I am a lover of light, smiles, chipotle, giving back and minions. I am obsessed with the color teal (or turquoise, they are one in the same to me), reclaimed wood furniture and Mumford & Sons. I am a mother to 3 wonderfully amazing little boys, a wife, and the care taker to 2 dogs – and a handful of fish.
When I was a kid I always had a dream of being a photographer. Back then I thought I would be taking pictures of wild tigers or elephants in the heart of Africa. Then I read an article about nature photographers. The article said that I would actually have to be camping, in a tent, in the middle of nowhere for days/weeks/months on end. I knew right then I would NEVER be doing that. After that article the whole photography thing was put on the back burner for a while. I graduated high school, went to college, got married and had a few kids. In 2009 when my second son was born, I was able to buy my first “big” camera. As soon as I had it in my hands I fell in love again. It was just your run of the mill, entry level canon DSLR, but to me it was EVERYTHING.
It would take me over the next 3 years to fully learn and understand what I could make my camera do. I started off taking pictures of families and kids. After 2 years of family & children sessions I slowly added events in. Then in the summer of 2013 I added weddings to my specialty. It was a big step for me. Wedding photography is something that means the world to me. I wanted to make sure that I could deliver my clients timeless, classic, beautiful pictures on this one very big day.
Since 2013 I have been focusing mainly on weddings & engagements, but I do still very much love to shoot family and friends. Unlike some other photographers I only book 2-3 weddings per month. This allows me to give my couples a one-of-a-kind experience. I end up being more than just a the photographer, and I love every minute of it.
I would love to get to know a little bit more about you and your family, please fill out the contact information so we may talk about what your photography needs are.
