Hey, everybody, I'm glad you took the time to check out my business page! Allyson Washington Photography is a Black-owned and disabled run business established in 2013. I started my business when I was living out of my car with absolutely nothing but my camera, my laptop, and a dream of being a business owner. To honor that ambitious young woman who knew what she wanted in life and worked to build a business out of nothing; I continue to keep my prices low. I don't want people to have to take out a second mortgage to get quality photos of one of the most beautiful days of their life.
And, as many of my clients will attest, I'm not only there to be your photographer but I'm there to be a supportive helper throughout the process. I've changed diapers; stepped in as the wedding coordinator, and I've even made a quick dress for the flower girl out of bridesmaids robes and hotel decor flowers. Need to glue sequins on all of your name cards the night before the wedding? Give me a call and I'll come to help with snacks. Forgot the safety pins? I bring an emergency kit with me on the day of the wedding with everything from aspirin to a handheld sewing machine. For me, being a wedding photographer means caring for the client before, during, and well after the wedding.
I'm also incredibly flexible with payment plans and I will work with you to help you find what you need. I can create customizable payment plans that will support any schedule you see fit. Because things happen and expenses pop up between the time you say "yes" to the time you say "I do".
Check out my pricing packages on the pricing section of this page and, if I'm a perfect fit, shoot me a message. If not, let's see if we can find something that works for you.
I have an educational background in fine arts and psychology with over 17 years of professional experience in photography, film making, and painting. My photography experience ranges from weddings to fashion to newborn photography.
I offer wedding photography packages include high-resolution images and digital files. I also offer engagement shoots, boudoir shoots, and trash the dress. Packages can also include the following:

Allyson goes above and beyond. When she says that she's got your back, boy does she mean it. We had to make a lot of changes for our wedding because of the coronavirus, and she was ride or die right along side us. From the moment we met Allyson, we knew we wanted to work with her. As we walked to our car after our first meeting, my (now) husband turned to me and said, "I think you just made a new friend back there." And he was right. Allyson became more than just a photographer for us. Throughout this process, we've chatted about everything from our pets to episodes of Lovecraft Country! Also, on the day of our wedding, she was incredibly helpful. We had a bit of a guerilla-style wedding where we set up and dismantled everything ourselves, and she jumped on in, eager to lend a hand. Last, but certainly not least, the pictures she took are INCREDIBLE. I haven't been able to stop looking at them. She did a fantastic job capturing so many meaningful moments from our day. She works really great with kids, too. She managed to get a picture of all 11 members of our combined families where we all look great, even the kids! Do yourself a favor and just hire her, already!!!Sent on 11/14/2020

Allyson felt like part of the family, in a really good way
Allyson was amazing, from first contact to our wedding day. I can't speak highly enough of her artistic eye, her overall friendly demeanor, or her professionalism... You absolutely won't go wrong hiring her! My husband and I are not particularly photogenic, but yet we love how she made us look, without looking overly posed. She integrated into our family so well that my grandmother thought we had been friends for a long time! It really just added to the magic of the day!Sent on 02/24/2020

Awesome and personable photographer.
We hired Allyson for our wedding and from the first meeting with her, we knew that she was the perfect photographer for us. I would heartily recommend her to any of my friends or family who were interested in photography services. The pictures came out perfect.Sent on 12/08/2019
