Though I photographed countless weddings over the years, the best training I ever received was getting married in September 2017. I couldn’t believe how much I learned from being on the other side of the camera. I was most surprised by how much I loved all the spontaneous candids of us and our guests. These photos definitely outnumber the staged, line-up style shots in my wedding album and are primarily the ones I’ve framed for my house.

After my wedding, my appreciation for the planning process and the day itself completely changed. I love being able to share my tips & tricks to help make your engagement and wedding day photos even more special. This means helping you create a shot list and logical timeline, managing your family’s expectations and more. As a bonus to my Twin Cities clients, I’m always sharing info about the best vendors around town.

Wedding packages start at $4,000 with the average bride spending around $4,500. If I’m already booked on your date, no problem! I have a fabulous team of associates photographers that can serve you. You’ll still receive the full Trish Allison experience, including my editing, but a different smiling face will be there on your wedding day. If you’re interested in learning more about the associates program, just mention so while inquiring.


The first part of my career was spent working in marketing for a well-known baby product company where I cast baby models (the best!), creative directed photoshoots and promoted some of the cutest baby products ever. This job, along with becoming Auntie Trish to six nieces and nephews, was an incredibly influential experience on my path to full-time photography—and totally fueled my obsession with babies.

I seriously adore the transformative beauty that is a woman becoming a mom. Some of my most memorable photoshoots have been in-home sessions with new parents, where everyone’s just a little bit overtired but mom has makeup on for the first time in weeks so she’s determined to make it happen.

I often hear from new moms that their husband was skeptical about this type of photoshoot, but he quickly changes his mind once he sees the gallery. Sleep deprivation can make these intimate moments at home fuzzy, so capturing them for my clients brings them–and me–a lot joy.

The investment for a Motherhood session is $750. First-Year photography bundles also available.

I can't wait to work with you.
