ABOUT ALISON

Hi there, I’m Alison!

I’m a wedding and family photographer newly based in Montgomery County, Maryland after living in Philadelphia for nine years. My work has been featured in The Knot magazine, Style Me Pretty, Brides, and a number of other publications.

I love my job because I get to capture some of life’s most special moments. It’s not lost on me how much of a privilege it is to have my photographs hanging on people’s walls for generations. It makes me weepy. 

This is Kealan

He’s my husband.

When he isn’t taking care of people’s ears, noses, and throats, he’s kept busy by making half the furniture in our house.

We have a pact that I don’t have to go with him when he goes to lowe’s. It’s saved our marriage.

Meet the Associates

Before we moved back to Maryland in June 2022, I asked two longtime photographer friends to officially join the Alison Dunn Photography team to help me continue serving clients in Philly.

They've both been shooting with me for years and are the photographers I trust most in the world!

Welcome to the little kid circus.

Addie is our oldest.
She takes her job as big sister VERY seriously.

Riley is our second little lady.
She takes her job as Addie’s shadow very seriously.

Number three, Bella, is our resident chicken nugget connoisseur.

We used to call Ruby, the baby, our quietest kid. Things have changed.

Miscellaneous Trivia

I love Jesus, banana-oreo milkshakes, and trying to have a green thumb. Emphasis on trying.

In high school, I was cast as a ghost grandma for a musical. I was supposed to wear roller skates for the part, but I almost rolled into the orchestra pit, so they cut the skates. 

I played goalie for most of my soccer-playing years. It’s probably because I think running is the worst, and everyone else picked up on it.

I think weddings and babies are the best.

You might be an adp bride if…

You know that things happen at weddings that you can’t control, and are willing to embrace the chaos and magic of a wedding day,

You’re excited to celebrate with your family and friends, but are most excited to marry your best bud,

You’re resigned to the fact that you’ll probably happy cry through the day (and that I will too),

You can’t wait for portrait time, and do a happy dance when I tell you it’s time for the veil photos, and

You can’t WAIT to bust a move on the dance floor

we might just be an excellent match.

If you’re looking for a photographer who…

Knows that having your picture taken can be stressful, but also knows that it doesn’t have to be,

LOVES capturing what makes relationships special and beautiful, and

Understands that the wedding day is big, but the marriage is bigger,

I might be your girl.

Especially if you love bad jokes and cheesy dance moves.

And guys. My camera bag is full of snacks and I’m good at sharing.
