Wedding Kind words
Thanks so much! It was such an amazingly sunny day and you captured the mood of all our guests beautifully as well as the excitement of the day. As we progressed through the morning to the afternoon not only did you capture the joy and emotions I felt as a bride and the nervousness of David in our expressions, you captured moments of pure emotion and joy on camera which was unbelievable when you look at the actual photographs.
You were non intrusive, easy to work with, professional and we have had some people say they are some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen. Of course we naturally agree as the photos flowed and made us look happy and relaxed.
Ali has such a great ability to make you feel calm and relaxed during each photo shoot which made a huge difference on our wedding day. She was incredibly professional and captured the most beautiful pictures of our big day. I personally received some great compliments for Ali as all of our guests found her to be accommodating and considerate – whilst not missing a shot! I would definitely recommend Ali to anyone as her standard of work is exemplary.
Thank you so much for the pictures from the Wedding. They are stunning, we are thrilled and you have done such an amazing job!
Alison they are amazing! Many more tears looking through them all! You really are so talented! You really were the best Photographer we could have asked for, in every way! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I honestly wouldn’t have changed a thing. You were also so great with the group shots. Everyone said how they didn’t feel ordered about and it just felt so natural. You did an amazing job and I would honestly recommend you to everyone and anyone and I just keep thinking of excuses to use you again!!
Thank you so so much, the attention you have given us from day one has just made everything so perfect. Xx
After exhaustive research we came across a few indeed very capable photographers, however we began to realise that perhaps they were missing something…. Yes, all the brides looked fabulous but then so they should! Hours of preparation, happiness all around, great make up and the most expensive dress they would ever buy, impossible not to get a good shot! We then realised that we wanted someone that would be able not only to take great photos of our special day but that would also have the ability to capture the emotions felt not only by us but also our guests as this was to be a very intimate ceremony with close family and friends, we knew it would be hard but we did get very lucky and managed to find Alison! Relief, the search was over! Alison was with us for 10 hours on the day but she was a bit like a “ninja”, we didn’t even know she is there! Not at all intrusive. She was really good fun and had a great charisma that made us relax instantly, perfect when like me you hate have your pictures taken! She did what most were unable to accomplish, 3 weeks after our wedding we were sitting at home going through our photos in tears as every step and every little detail had been captured by Alison, smiles, laughter, apprehension, nerves, happiness….We could almost hear the speeches… We could not have asked for more, we have our beautiful day in pictures and because of Alison we will never forget. She is indeed the consummate professional. ps. word of warning ,if you choose Alison you will have a hard time trimming down the pictures for the album, you will want all of them!
Alison, the Wedding Photographs are superb. The Wedding Photographer is almost the most important piece of the puzzle as the role is so intrusive, but you were brilliant! Professional, sensitive, understanding and FUN! Thank you for making the Wedding so special by taking superb photographs and for being such a lovely lady!
Alison came recommended to us from another photographer which in itself speaks volumes. Her professional and organised approach put us at ease from the very first meeting. We couldn’t be happier with our engagement and wedding photos and can’t wait to see her again for our newborn shoot.
Thank you Ali for all your photo’s and efforts on the day. The pictures are beautiful. Truly stunning, they capture the day so well. You are exceptionally talented.
Alison put us at our ease and, instead of feeling awkward when she was taking pictures, we found she was a very integral part of the day. Everyone at the wedding liked her and felt she was completely non-intrusive – just a bit like another guest who happened to have a camera.
We are delighted with the framed ‘engagement’ pics and we really love the album which is beautifully laid out.
Thank you dear Alison, we feel we’ve made a friend.

Ali made me feel completely relaxed, comfortable and at ease throughout the shoot. I felt a little shy to begin with, by following Ali’s lead and going with her creative ideas, it was not long before I really got into it and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. If I do say so my self the photos are absolutely beautiful, Ali did an amazing job and managed to capture me in the best possible light.
The second shoot was with my 9 day old newborn daughter Martha and her daddy, these photos are amazing and I struggled to find words to describe how beautiful and precious these pictures are, we could not have even imagined they would turn out so perfect. We are so grateful and happy at how Ali managed to capture our family. We all felt so very comfortable thanks to Ali’s personable approach and really enjoyed the day.
On both occasions found it easy to follow Ali’s gentle instruction, how to stand and pose etc. I cannot recommend Ali’s work highly enough. You are guaranteed to have professional yet personal photographs to treasure always. Ali is an amazingly talented and creative photographer, we look forward to many more shoots in the future. Thank you again and again Ali
Ali is the ultimate professional. I was drawn to Ali’s work by the quality of the photos and just how lovely they looked. It helps that Ali herself is lovely, puts you completely at ease before, during and after shoot. We booked with Ali having complete confidence in her and we are not disappointed with the results. Her work is classic, stunning and unlike other photographers I have seen.
Our newborn shoot with our 8 day old daughter was so lovely, shot at Ali’s home studio where we were made to feel welcome and comfortable while she worked her magic with our baby. The photos were ready to view in less than 2 weeks which we did at our home and Ali’s eye for detail and advice helped us to decide what package worked best for us and what photos to have.
I would recommend Ali to anyone for any occasion or those wanting to capture memories to last a lifetime.
Thank Ali, you’re a truly wonderful photographer and have given us the best photos we could have hoped for.
The photos you took of Ava-Grace captured her personality perfectly. They are a complete work of art and something to treasure. I couldn’t be more pleased that I decided to do a (late!) newborn shoot and that they photographer we chose to work with was you… very fun, friendly and quickly put us at ease.
Alison was really great to work with. She really made us feel comfortable even before we arrived. It was a joy to watch her interact with Rowan and see how much care she took setting up each picture so that he was happy and content and looked adorable for every single photo. We’re thrilled that we had the newborn photos taken by Alison as even a few months on, he’s already changed so much, and now we have a way to remember and treasure those special early days.
We received the disc today. The packaging is gorgeous. We were really impressed with your work and your wonderful service and so will definitely recommend you should we hear of anyone looking for a photographer.
Good luck and hopefully see you again for another shoot in the future
Alison has been our family’s photographer since I was pregnant and she photographed our daughter at 10 days, 6 months, and a year old. Our experience with Alison has been phenomenal! She is attentive to meeting the “looks” we wanted to go for and has such an eye for capturing beautiful moments! She is also very knowledgeable of the Suffolk and surrounding areas and always had great suggestions on where to do our shoots. Alison herself is also so personable and easy to spend time with….really puts you at ease and got our daughter to laugh and giggle! She is nothing short of a gem and truly a talented photographer!
Your images always capture emotion so beautifully..they are real….raw & simply divine. Each one makes me smile or even want to cry..they represent love, joy, laughter and happily ever after.
Thank you so much for the amazing shoot that we did, we are delighted with the photos. It was so much fun working with you, I had a ball!
We were so delighted with our family shoot with you and our two little girls. You made us all feel so relaxed and the photos are amazing, so natural and each shot sparkled, we can’t stop looking at them! Thank you so much!
Portraits kind words
Our family shoot took place on a summer’s evening, around Ali’s beautiful family farm. There are lots of options for great backdrops including leafy lanes, fields and a lake. The whole shoot went really well and was very easy. We even took along our 8 year old pet labrador, Molly, who smiled constantly for the camera!
Ali had such a lovely, relaxed manner that we were all at ease immediately. She’s a consummate professional, mixing authority with chat and laughter.
Even though we had really enjoyed the shoot, myself and my daughter in particular were dreading seeing the resulting photographs as we are never very happy in front of the camera and quite self conscious about posing. However, even we were utterly delighted with the images. It was almost impossible to narrow it down to a sensible selection to have framed as they are all absolutely beautiful. Ali was patience personified, and was very helpful with advice regarding framing. We now have our finished products all over the house including canvas’s and a framed collage. As our children are flying the nest and we’re beginning a new chapter, these fabulous images of our gorgeous family are absolutely priceless.
Ali has done a really fabulous job, she has an incredible talent and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any type of photography.
My favourite thing about Alison Mckenny photography is the light she manages to capture in all her photos- it’s so pure and clear. The natural style of her photos creates eyes that pop, skin that glows and hair that shines. Ali also puts you at ease when photographing, so much so it allows your personality to come through and gives you the confidence to experiment finding your best angles and poses for the camera.
We have now had several photo shoots with Ali, a maternity shoot before our son was born, mini shoots when our children were just sitting up and most recently a family shoot on the farm (our son was 3 years old and daughter 10 months). The shoots have all been really enjoyable and we were delighted with all of the photos. Lots of the photos from our shoots are now all around our home. Ali was brilliant at making us all feel relaxed, in getting the children’s attention and even making my husband who doesn’t like posing for photos, feel totally at ease. The quality of the photos were fantastic thanks to Ali’s skill and knowledge and also the beautiful surroundings on the farm where she is based.
Thanks Alison, The pictures are fantastic and the framed ones look even better on the wall. Lucy was over the moon with hers. The whole experience has been great, from the relaxed and enjoyable shoot, through choosing the prints we wanted, to the presentation of the finished result – lucky to have such a beautiful family for you to photograph and glad I chose you for the assignment!
Thanks Ali! We had such a great time. I absolutely love these shots, they are truly stunning and I can’t wait to get them up on my wall! Thank you xxx
Aww Alison I absolutely love them! Thank you so much for making the photo session so much fun for the girls – they thoroughly enjoyed it! You have captured everything that we were hoping for and so much more!
