Fast Facts: Get to know Alison + Zach

Indiana Wedding Photographer Alison Mae Photography and husband Zach

For the most part, I’m the main face of Alison Mae Photography. I send out the emails, I’m the one behind the camera. But Zach plays a big part in AMP too! And while I’ll get into more of what exactly he does in a later blog post, I thought I might introduce the two of us a little better with some fast facts. I thought it’d be a great way for some of you to get to know us! So buckle up and here we go!

Alison

1.) I LOVE ANIMALS! I HAVE NEVER MET AN ANIMAL I DIDN’T PROMPTLY FALL IN LOVE WITH AND ENCOURAGE CLIENTS TO INCLUDE THEIR PETS IN THEIR PHOTOS!
2.) I’M THE MIDDLE CHILD.
3.) I HAVE MAD LOVE FOR ORGANIZATION AND OFFICE SUPPLIES. MAD.LOVE.
4.) I HAVE RACED IN THE SOAP BOX DERBY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.
5.)OUR HOME IS FULL OF ANIMAL SHAPED KNICK KNACKS THAT ARE MISSING EARS, ANTLERS OR LEGS. WHEN I FIND THEM IN THE CLEARANCE SECTION I HAVE TO BUY THEM.
6.)THE PLACES I WOULD MOST LIKE TO SEE ARE: SEATTLE, UNITED STATES, SANTORINI, GREECE + PARIS, FRANCE. I PLAN TO SEE ALL THREE IN 2019.
7.) MY FAVORITE MOVIES ARE: BIG FISH, EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED, MOULIN ROUGE, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN AND LA LA LAND.
8.) MAE IS NOT MY LAST NAME, IT’S MY MIDDLE NAME. MAE WAS MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER’S MIDDLE NAME TOO. BECAUSE PHOTOGRAPHS OFTEN BECOME FAMILY HEIRLOOMS, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A COOL WAY TO HONOR MY OWN FAMILY HISTORY WHEN I NAMED MY BUSINESS.
9.) I’M TERRIBLE AT SPORTS, BUT SURPRISINGLY SKILLED AT MINI GOLF.
10.) YOU CAN CALL ME ALISON OR ALI. I GO BY BOTH AND HAVE ZERO PREFERENCE.
