Hi, I’m Allison. I like to take photos.
Lightbloom Photography is a fine art & natural light photography company based in Wilmington, North Carolina but available for hire world wide. I officially launched my business in 2013 after being formally trained in art school, getting my degree in Fine Art and Film Photography and I’ve been working in the wedding industry since I graduated in 2010. Turns out, I’m actually one of those weirdos – I absolutely LOVE what I do! I’m a wedding photographer for the wild at heart and the loudly in love. I’m obsessed with laughter and silliness and couples who aren’t afraid to be themselves around each other. My favorite thing is to capture you just being you. My photo style is majorly candid and natural, with a fun and fine art touch. I offer film photography packages too!
Play Mr. Brightside by the Killers for me at your wedding so I know it’s real.
Wedding packages from $3200. I guarantee a 2 week turnaround to receive your wedding photos. I ALSO offer elopement PACKAGES! (Please elope in italy, my bags are packed)
Speaking of italy: I will be traveling through italy in late july/early august 2023, if you are eloping or planning a wedding anywhere in italy in that timeframe, i would waive any travel fees!
I'm a professional third wheel. Leo. Gryffindor. Sarcasm is my love language. I laugh A LOT. Sunsets are my favorite. 35mm film will always be my first love. I am the queen of email. I will never stop traveling and I am obsessed with Europe. LGBTQ+ supporter. Crazy dog lady. I was born in Ohio but I was made for the beach. I'm a dog mom of a very sassy Samoyed named Luna (and yes I named her after Luna Lovegood). If you get that reference then we'll be the best of friends. Let's go grab some mimosas and talk about your big day! Clients are always welcome in my studio in the Cargo District!
