Dan N' Alyson
It all started 7 years ago...
Our story can be simplified into finding l.o.v.e in an unusual place 7 years ago and we haven't left each others side since.
The creatures and landscapes of this big beautiful planet were the stepping stones of our career but working with people and couples is what got us hooked for good. So, what do you do when you can't decide between weddings and nature? You do both.
Years later we've found ourselves creating unforgettable albums in unforgettable places.
WE DON'T WORK WITH PROFESSIONAL MODELS
AND WE DON'T EXPECT YOU TO POSE LIKE ONE
We are here to show you what do to with those hands! The key to timeless photos is real emotions. When you can be yourself with the love of your life that's when the best photos happen. We're here to prompt the awkward elbows and capture the moments that happen naturally.
YOU'RE NOT AS AWKWARD AS YOU THINK
YOU'RE ACTUALLY REALLY PRETTY
It's all about the company you keep! Being comfortable is key and when you click with your photographers its less like a photoshoot and more like making new friends.
Unpopular opinion - your photographer doesn't have to be a drill sergeant. We have love what we do for a living and we have a great time doing it. One of our top priorities is making sure you're enjoying yourselves and creating fun memories - isn't that the point of all this?
WE ARE SUPER DOWN TO EARTH
AND GOOD LOOKING
IF YOU DON'T FIND THAT FUNNY MAYBE WE DON'T CLICK
And that's okay! There is a photographer for everyone out there. We like to be as flexible and down to earth with our approach as possible, a wedding can be stressful enough so why add to that?
We've spent a lot of hours curating our photography style and we're extremely proud of that but if its not your style, that's totally cool too! We always encourage a FaceTime, phone call, or zoom chat to make sure we connect. Check out our portfolio to get a feel for our perspective and edge.
I am a woman of many nicknames Al, Aly, Aly cat, and my personal favorite Ol' Al (this is already so interesting right?) And if I'm being honest I really don't like introducing myself but I think its super important that we get to know our clients and vise versa. Before photography I worked as short order cook for 8 years and it wasn't until I met Dan when he got a job as a waiter at the same diner I worked at and introduced me to photography and I quickly fell head over heels for both. I left the kitchen (cue woman joke) for a life of passion and people. These are a few things that make me human... My loyal beast Clark, the 17lb cat, who is everything soft and pure in this world and my muse. I live for sarcasm and I think Alanis Morissette rocks. Legends oF The Fall is my favorite movie of all time and red is my favorite color but you wouldn't think so looking at my wardrobe. I spend a lot of time outdoors which has shaped me into the tent loving, snowboarding, mountain climbing, photographing woman I am today.
My name is Dan. I studied Biology in college, and after graduating I picked up my first digital camera. I was fascinated with (and still am) the idea of shooting macro photography of insects and flowers. Unlocking new worlds. That eventually snowballed in wanting to take photos of everything. Now Al and I try to bring our cameras everywhere and provide people with a new perspective on their surroundings. I have an affinity for music, tech and the outdoors, and luckily photography is cohesive with all of it. Al and I love to learn, and we are constantly improving our craft in the pursuit of creating art.
And yes, we are also madly in love!
There is something incredibly special about running a business of love with the person you love. It’s all real, all the time.
