Best Wedding Photographer in the Columbus Area
I highly recommend Kismet Visuals! Allison and her second shooter Alina did a fantastic job photographing our wedding on October 31, 2020. They spent 8 hours with us, at 3 different locations and captured each moment of our big day perfectly. Our church had some very strict guidelines due to COVID-19 as to where they could be during the ceremony and they handled it so well. All the photos turned out amazing, the quality, lighting, and style were exactly what we wanted. I love that Allison took so many detail shots during the day, not all photographers take the time to do this. I am especially obsessed with the portraits she took of my husband and me around the church and our reception venue. Allison is super professional, prompt, and a great communicator. She was an amazing leader on our wedding day arranging shoots with our family members and the wedding party. The day wouldn’t have been as smooth and stress-free as it was without her! She had our edited photos back to us within two weeks of our wedding, we were literally sitting on the beach during our honeymoon viewing our wedding photos. Now that we are officially a Kismet Couple, we cannot wait to have Allison take all of our family photos in the future. Thank you Kismet Visuals!Sent on 12/10/2020

Simply the best
Such a wonderful photographer! Allison was kind, patient, and even helped me bustle my dress when I couldn’t find a single bridesmaid! She captured our day perfectly.Sent on 07/16/2021

The absolute best you can find
Where do I begin?? I've worked with Allison many times over the years so when it came time to choose who I wanted to capture this special day, I knew EXACTLY where to go. Allison consistently does phenomenal, stunning work. Not only that, but she is so kind, responsive, and her turn around time is honestly out of this world. Our wedding photos are everything we could have ever dreamed of and more. She has photographed so many important moments in my life and will remain my go-to professional!Sent on 06/23/2021
Kismet Visuals & Co. Photography & Design's reply:Melinda, I am so humbled you’ve chosen me to document all your lives biggest moments! Thank you for trusting me! 💕

best in columbus
allison is so wonderful to work with. she's super responsive over email and was really dedicated to working with us, despite a few covid-related scheduling challenges. day-of, her style and demeanor put us totally at ease, and it shows in our beautiful photos. everyone looks so naturally and genuinely happy, and i couldn't be more in love with the final product - the style of her photography and quality of her editing is flawless. better yet, we received our full digital gallery just over 2 weeks after our wedding day. love being a #kismetcouple!Sent on 06/01/2021

More than I could have ever hoped for
This entire wedding process, including working with Allison is more than my husband and I could have hoped for or imagined. It's funny how things have a way of working out just as they're supposed to and I believe that's exactly what happened with us, and being able to work with Allison. This was our 5th (Yep, FIFTH) planned wedding due to Covid. Originally planned in Puerto Rico, then two different locations in the Bahamas, then moved to Mexico and finally in Columbus, OH in February! Not exactly what we had planned or envisioned. #thankscovid. Having all of our friends, family and loved ones together for a huge beach celebration changed to us getting married in front of just our immediate families in our Columbus church. It turned out to be even more special than what we had originally planned and Allison captured every single special moment in the church that we now love so much.
I wish I could take Allison with me on every important day in my future because I know her pictures would tell the perfect story. Nothing felt scripted or forced, nothing was staged or awkward, and I didn't even realize she was there most of the time. She took time to ask up front what our expectations were, and I think that is the most important part of what she did - she knew exactly what we wanted, what our perfect shots would look like, what type of image we were interested in capturing, and she delivered on it 110%. A true creative and caring professional who knows exactly what she's doing, but takes the clients wishes into account and delivers exactly what they want and not what she thinks they should have. Since she asked so many questions up front and got to know us, she also determined that we would appreciate at least a few of the smaller details that we didn't originally think were important and I'm so thankful that she captured those as well. She was a strong leader during family photos, extremely organized throughout the entire process, and was an excellent communicator. She would email me back early in the morning or late at night, usually within minutes if not seconds of my original email. We are beyond happy with our choice to work with Kismet, and as an official "Kismet Couple," we'll look forward to working with Allison again for many special events to come! Cheers!Sent on 05/26/2021

Kismet Visual was incredible to work with. We also did or engagement photos with her and I’m looking forward to continuing to book sessions with her as we start our family. My husband and I are both pretty go-with-the-flow types of people, and Allison was great at making us feel comfortable and getting amazing candid photos of us on our wedding day. I’m so thankful we went with Kismet for our wedding day and am truly going to treasure these photos for the rest of my life.Sent on 10/07/2020

BEST thing about my wedding!
Booking with Allison and Kismet was the best decision I made when planning my wedding. It was the first vendor I booked with (even before the venue). Kismet was more than just my photographer, Allison is my friend who did an amazingly perfect job at capturing every moment of our wedding day. I could not be happier with the kindness, generosity, and level of professionalism I received with Allison and the pictures are unreal. Allison is a very respected and well known photographer in Columbus and is the best. I would not wait on booking with one of the top photographers in Columbus. She is worth every penny too. She specializes at shooting at Oak Grove Jorgensen Farms and makes the pictures look unique and different even after shooting there so often. Oh, and her Instagram is also perfect. Allison was very responsive through email and even stayed over her contracted time allotment to capture a few more special moments of my wedding. We received all 742 pictures edited and everything less than two weeks after the wedding... in her busy season. She is phenomenal. Contact her now! THANK YOU Allison!Sent on 09/24/2019
Kismet Visuals & Co. Photography & Design's reply:Ah gosh! This makes me so happy and the fact you view me as a friend just made me smile! I love my couples and always feel like I leave a wedding with new family and friends! Thank you, thank you!!!

Kismet Visuals for the win!
We are so thankful our videographer Jonah Epps Films recommended Allison to us! She was so sweet, thoughtful, calm, and flexible the day of our wedding. We felt 100% confident through the entire process that she had everything under control so we could enjoy our day. It was truly an honor to be one of her #kismetcouples!Sent on 05/03/2019

Allison was the photographer for our wedding last August and our photos are absolutely amazing!! We could not be more happy or more impressed with how our photos turned out! Allison has such a creative eye and talent for what she does and it definitely shows through to all of our photos. She was so professional throughout the whole process and was quick to respond to any questions we had right away. During our wedding she was able to keep everything and everyone focused, organized, and moving along with how it needed to be, which is so essential especially when there is so much going on! AND she got our photo gallery to us in less than TWO WEEKS after our wedding which was awesome to be able to see all of our photos while we were still on our honeymoon! If you are searching for a photographer for your wedding or anything else you will not be disappointed with Kismet Visuals! We are beyond happy with our choice and can guarantee you will be too!! Thanks again, Allison :)Sent on 05/19/2020

Truly magically fairytale photos!
Allison is an amazing and very talented photographer. She is extremely organized, easy to work with and has a natural eye for detail! Her photos are absolutely stunning, beautiful and timeless with gorgeous lighting! She captured all the beauty of our wedding SO perfectly; the emotions, romance and our playful love! She is kind, friendly and professional in all that she does. Going through our wedding photos they tell a story of the best day of our lives; we relive the day. We love our photos and will treasure them forever. Her turnaround time is super quick. We were very impressed when we received all edited photos exactly two weeks from our wedding day (over 1000 photos)! She was accommodating and flexible throughout the entire process. We live out of state and had the wedding in Ohio; from start to finish, communicating with Allison was stress-free. Prior to the wedding we had only met with her once (as we had our engagement photos out of state) and felt completely comfortable with her and confident! She is very reputable and respected in the industry – and her positive energy shines. She kept everyone on track the day of with a detailed timeline to follow. We got married at The Oak Grove at Jorgensen Farms and she is very familiar with the venue. We had photos taken at sunset and she knew the picture-perfect spots that would capture the best lighting on us. TRULY MAGICALLY FAIRYTALE PHOTOS! We highly recommend Allison, she met all of our expectations! We can’t wait to have her take more photos for us in the future!Sent on 10/15/2019

Excellence! Wouldn't have chosen anyone else!
Allison is terrific! We cannot say enough great things about Allison and her work. Our engagement and wedding photos are perfect!Sent on 02/29/2020
In the beginning, we were least excited about having our photos taken throughout the wedding process. Instead, Allison made it fun and not awkward.
We are so pleased with how all of our photos turned out! Allison and her second shooter captured it all and we will be forever grateful. Can't wait to get our printed photos and album!
We will definitely be repeat customers in the future.
p.s. we definitely recommend her selfie photo booth!!

Amazing!! Creative and Organized. Could not be happier with how our pictures turned out!
Allison was amazing! She captured the perfect moments and we got so many compliments on how great our pictures turned out! She was so organized, knew our event space inside and out and did such a great job moving us along throughout the night. We were able to be present in the moment and enjoy the evening with friends and family but would get pulled away at just the right times to capture the most perfect pictures!Sent on 08/25/2019

Stunning Wedding Photography - Highly Recommend
I would HIGHLY recommend Allison at Kismet Visuals- she did our wedding photos, and they were beyond gorgeous. She captured the atmosphere and emotions of the day, the venue and small details, the unplanned special moments and the planned groups shots to perfection. She did a great job with adjusting at the last minute to my husband's broken ankle, and making sure to create gorgeous shots that took the attention away from the boot. She was incredibly responsive at all times throughout the wedding planning and had a highly detailed timeline pulled together for the day-of that helped us organize our day. When it came to getting the photos back- she did so very quickly (around a 2 week turn around time), with all shots edited and in an easy to use gallery site. We were blown away with how amazing the photos were- we could hardly choose our favorites! Allison is great at what she does- if you're looking for timeless images, she's the one!Sent on 08/02/2019

An unforgetable experience!
Alison and her team were able to give us more than we could have ever imagined wanting from a wedding photographer! From our engagement session to the wedding itself we could not have been happier. She was always confirming each and every detail and helped so much with keeping all the plans straight. Her timeliness to get us the final products was so much faster than expected and everything looked perfect!Sent on 06/16/2019

Allison is amazing - she makes you feel so incredibly comfortable and takes such creative and thoughtful photos. She really cares about how you want to remember your special day and is so flexible, easy-going and fun to work with. We loved having her with our wedding party throughout the entire day - she was there for every moment, even snapping photos on our party bus! We got all of our wedding photos back two weeks after our wedding - such an amazing turnaround time and you can tell a lot of time went into the final delivery. We are SO happy with our photos and will have a hard time selecting which photos we want to print! I highly recommend Kismet - we can't wait to use her again for future family photos too!! :)Sent on 06/24/2019
Paige W. · Married on 05/18/2019
We absolutely loved working with Allison. From the first meeting through our engagement pictures and the entire planning process, she was there to answer our questions and made us feel so comfortable! We are completely floored with the beautiful photos she took to capture our day, and I can not imagine having anyone else be there with us. Allison did such a good job helping us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and even in the moments when we didn't, she captured us in the best way possible. Nothing but good things to say and everyone in my family or involved in the day feels the same way. Thank you, Allison!Sent on 06/14/2019
