Featured in over 100 online and offline publications including: Daily Mail UK, National Examiner, Offbeat Bride, Rock n Roll Bride, Broke Ass Bride, WeddingBee, Gothic Weddings, Marry Me Ink Uk, The Philadelphia Inquirer & Philadelphia Weddings.

Just be yourself. My mission is empowering tattooed brides and alternative brides to get the wedding photos that they want. I'm a rock n roll kind of company. I photograph alternative families, tattooed brides, punk rock grooms, steampunk couples, inked brides, gay and lesbian weddings and off-beat alternative couples. No matter what kind of wedding you have planned, I'll accommodate your ideas and make your photos represent YOU!

My clients enjoy the fact that they don't have to pretend, be someone they are not or follow a certain trend. You'll never hear us say, "Let's photoshop out your tattoos" like some other photographers have said. Instead I'll work with you and your style to get you what you want!

Mike and his team were incredible. He is warm, fun, and extremely professional. My husband and I (along with all of our guests) loved his flexibility and ability to capture beautiful un-posed photographs.

Mike and the second photographer (unfortunately I dont remember her name) that day were absolutely amazing!! They were so much fun to work with and yet still so professional! The pictures are unbelieveable! Mike really found a way to capture the whole day in pictures. Looking through them almost two months later it brings my husband and I right back to that day. He captured every moment and every emotion without ever getting in the way. I would reccomend Allebach to anyone getting married!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Allebach. From the very first meeting with Mike to the follow-up about our album, my husband and I were so happy with everything. The staff definitely has some personality, which so many wedding vendors lack, and they made what could be a stressful process actually enjoyable. It was awesome having the photographers around on our wedding day and we were thrilled with the end results. An added bonus is that they include engagement pics and albums in some of the packages - definitely a great value.

The ONLY bit of criticism I could have is that it seemed to take longer than average (about 7 weeks) to get the link to our pictures after the wedding. Granted we got married in the super-busy fall wedding season, but most of my friends received their wedding pics sooner than that, or at least a "sneak peek" or quick blog posting within a couple of weeks. It was ABSOLUTELY worth the wait but just a note for any extra impatient brides!

AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are with Mike & Becca! They made us feel comfortable, answered our questions, were very professional and flexible. The engagement pictures were, (not to sound redundant) AMAZING! We can't wait to see the wedding pictures. Side-note: Not for your ordinary bride - these photos are artistic, fun, edgy, and cool. If you're an offbeat bride, they'll be PERFECT for you!

Allebach Photography is AWESOME. My husband and I aren't terribly "normal" (whatever that means)- we've always done our own thing. I knew I found our photographer when I stumbled across Mike in a non-traditional wedding blog. Mike is totally down with anything. Engagement session at an old Revolutionary War fort? Sure. Wedding in a field? He's there. His photography is beautiful and he's professional but still fun. What more could you ask for? Oh a tattooed bride discount? Yeah, he does that too. I highly recommend Allebach Photography.

Mike Allebach, and his assistant for the day, were AMAZING. Exactly the type of pictures I wanted (candid, more in the moment, than pose and click), I felt their prices were very reasonable, and I've been recommending them to anyone I know that is in the process of getting married. I felt very comfortable talking to Mike and emailing his Office Manager, nothing felt too formal or forced. I'm actually getting some "Trash the Dress" pictures taken by Allebach because I loved BOTH my Wedding photos AND my Engagement Photos.

My husband and I used Mike for a TTD photo shoot, the photos are fantastic! Not only did he listen to our ideas, but he also expanded on them, coming up locations to shoot, bringing props and taking the time to make sure things went smoothly. We have received so many compliments from people on how great these photos look. We recommend him to everyone, and are already planning our next shoot!

Allebach Photography is AMAZING! Mike and Rachel are so calm and collected and responsive and organized at the same time. They totally work with you to get the best package for your budget too. You feel at ease as soon as you meet them.

I normally HATE wedding photos, and the poses and how fake they can come off. So, when searching online, I fell in love with natural, candid photography of Allebach. I was a bit concerned I wasn't really their "style" being a bit more traditional than all the tattooed ladies on the site. BUT let me tell you, I couldn't be happier with how comfortable I was and how BEAUTIFUL my photographs are. I had specific visions of how I wanted my engagement and wedding photos and Mike NAILED it! They were just what I pictured. The shots are so unique and special, they capture the entire mood and feeling of you and your day rather than just some photos. And I didn't even know he was there! Completely natural shots, each one evokes a memory of how amazing my day really was. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

6 months later, I STILL get compliments once a week about how great the photos are.

Mike did an amazing job with both our engagement pictures and our wedding photos. He was very easy to work with and he embraced my ideas for engagement pictures and our historical location for our ceremony. Our photos are fabulous! I would recommend Allebach to anyone. The packages are diverse and flexible. We got all that we wanted.

Mike Allebach and his assistant were calm and collective even though I was quite a frazzled bride prior to the wedding. haha They did a great job capturing the fun moments of the wedding/reception. It was a great idea that he brought his computer so he wouldnt run out of SD card space for the hundreds of awesome photos shot. highly recommended! ;)

Our pictures turn out fabulous. Everytime I look at the pictures I feel like I am getting married again. All my friends from Ecuador were amazed with the quality and the real emotion in the pictures. They had never seen such young, energetic photographers. Thanks again for the great experience.

Mike Allebach and his assistant were amazing throughout the entire planning process. Prior to the wedding we had a phone conference and went over all of the final details along with a 'must take list' that he asked me to prepare. The day of the wedding, they arrived early, took all of the photos we asked for, and were so organized-I knew I didn't have to worry at all.
Once we got the photos back, we were thrilled! Mike is so creative and took such amazing shots-and many! We have over 800 great photos from only 4 hours. We couldn't be happier and feel lucky that we found Mike!

I had an amazing experience with Mike and Rachel. From the minute we met with them for our pre-wedding consultation to Mike coming to my house to help me pick out photos for our album they exceeded my expectations on every count. They were really flexible and graciously dealt with my mother's more traditional photography requests. Four years later I love my wedding photos and still pull out my album to look at all the fun we had that day. Allebach Photography does not disappoint.
