“Do what you love & it will love you back”
I’m a small town girl with big dreams. I grew up lakeside just north of Parry Sound, Ontario. Running around barefoot, catching frogs and playing in the dirt. These days I call the city of Toronto “home”, but Whitestone Lake will always have my heart.
My Mama raised me to never settle for a career that didn’t make my heart soar on a daily basis. So here I am, living my dream, capturing love stories on the regular and loving every second. Sharing in the love of two individuals is really something remarkable. I get to work with people every day who’ s love inspires me – needless to say, I adore what I do.
When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me outdoors adventuring with my goofy Australian Shepherd Kip, at the gym attempting to lift things 3x my bodyweight, or shutting my brain off with The Office. I am a huge animal lover and I will invite you to bring your dog to our engagement shoot.
In the last 6 years I’ve been blessed enough to be able to travel all over the world, some for work and some I solo travelled with nothing but a backpack for months on end. Countries including (but not limited to) Indonesia, Greece, Portugal, England, and my favourite – Australia. I’ve discovered that travelling and meeting new people is where my soul thrives, and I’m most at home when I’m seaside. So please know that I am more than willing to travel for you.
I have a passion for capturing genuine relationships all over the globe. Love stories are my favourite. Specializing in medium format film, I focus on creating imagery that speaks to the soul with it’s authenticity, while maintaining a constant timeless and romantic quality.
I am a believer in the tangible and the handmade – in other words I’m a sappy sentimentalist. My parents photographed my entire childhood on film and those albums are my favourite keepsake. I’ve brought that appreciation for film into my business, there’s something so magical about going back to the basic light on negative.
Above all else, I love working with people and having clients that turn into great friends.

“Allie took our engagement photos and did an amazing job! We are SO in love with them! They are currently printed and displayed all over our home and I love seeing them on a daily basis. Allie made us feel so comfortable during our session. We barely knew her previous to the engagment but she made us feel like great friends and as if we’d known each other for years! Allie doesn’t only become your photographer, she becomes your friend. She and I have kept in touch for years after our engagement session and I know we will be lifetime friends. She really is a gem. Book your future session or wedding with Allie. I promise you will have no regrets!” – Jennibelle Fugate
“I immediately fell in love with Allie’s style of photography, but was nervous to book her without actually meeting (being that I live in Florida). She suggested we do a video chat to put one another at ease. After 5 minutes of talking on the phone I knew she was the right fit for us. The day of the wedding, Allie arrived early to check out the site and got right to work. She was so personable and comfortable to work with; it was like we had been friends for a lifetime. My husband and I are not the most photogenic, but Allie guided us every step of the way. Her timing throughout the day was organized and allowed us to enjoy the day without worrying about the flow of events. The images that I received were better than I could have ever imagined. If you have the option, ask her about taking some pictures with film because AMAZING. Thank you Allie for capturing one of our greatest moments in life together!” – Chelsea Hartman
“Allie was recommended to me by another photographer who was booked on my wedding date. Although initially disappointed, I was blown away by Allie’s work and immediately thought she was the right choice for us. She made us both so comfortable both in person and in front of the camera. The day of our wedding was magical and she caught every moment. I was so pleased with the end result; we now have stunning photos that capture every memory of that amazing day. Looking back I am so thrilled that Allie was our photographer and wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!” – Laura Braslins
