I pride myself on being a fun, professional, unobtrusive, and thorough wedding photographer - equally able to laugh and joke with clients and to get down to business when needed. My past clients are much better at talking about me than I am, though. Here's a bit of what they have to say.
Alyson is magical! I would recommend her to everyone! What drew me to her company when I was looking for a photographer for my wedding was the diversity of people she's photographed and her poetic eye--she clearly was looking at her subjects in creative ways and putting them in creative settings. I was lucky when Alyson was available for our date since we only had two months to plan our small wedding. Our initial phone conversation helped me think even beyond the photos--Alyson has so much wedding experience (all different shapes and sizes and flavours) . . .
Alyson was great from start to finish. She's super kind, low-key and approachable, and made us feel comfortable from the first meeting. I'm amazed by the photos she captured during our wedding day - I don't know how she manages to grab the split-second of expression and emotion on faces, but it is magic what she did. So many special moments are perfectly represented in her photos for what they truly were and what we felt in those moments. And she's like a photography ninja . . .
If you are looking for the absolute best wedding photographer, look no further! Alyson is truly amazing. From our first meeting with her through her follow up emails and call making sure we were completely satisfied with our wedding albums, Alyson was everything we could have possibly asked for. We are from out of town, and Alyson was very flexible and accommodating to our schedules. She was extremely organized and made sure we covered all of the photo combinations that we wanted . . .
Alyson did such an amazing job with our wedding photography! Our pictures are amazing and it really captured the day for us. One thing that we really appreciated was that while she got amazing shots (both up close and from farther away), she was never intrusive and we hardly noticed her taking photos. We had a traditional Jewish wedding with many different parts, and we had a long list of different moments we wanted her to capture - she captured each moment beautifully! . . .
My main criteria for a wedding photographer was to find someone who could work beyond the posed photos, and capture the candid moments that truly make a wedding day special. I was referred to Alyson by the designer doing our invitations, and was impressed by her portfolio on her website, so we set up a meeting. From the beginning, Alyson was communicative, collaborative, professional, and fun. She asked questions and made suggestions to help understand and solidify my vision for the photos, combining my ideas with her expertise. . .
You need to hire Alyson Levy! I couldn’t be happier with my experience with her as my engagement shoot and wedding photographer. She is talented, professional, and so easy to get along with . . . Alyson was truly exceptional the day of the wedding. She fit right in and hung out with me and my girlfriends while we were getting ready. Since we were having so much fun I actually had no idea she was taking pictures that whole time. Those candid getting ready pictures are some of my favorites. During family photos, which I hear can be quite chaotic, Alyson did an excellent job directing everyone and the whole deal went really smoothly. . .
