Favorite Self-Portrait Artist

I’ve been blessed to share with you my favorite photographers list. But there is one person that needs to be added in her own separate category. In the middle of last year I recieved a friend request from someone I did not know. This is not uncommon, and can be a blessing and a curse. […]

Dominic Byrne - Hi Adam

Having been a member of the Photo Critique group on Facebook I was very impressed with your images that you posted there. I followed your link to your site and you have a great mix of images. If I am honest I probably prefer some of the slightly lesser processed shots but always like good use of lighting and like to see it used imaginatively which you obviously do very well. I am fortunate enough to have worked with Joe McNally, Zack Arias and David Hobby amongst others so really appreciate what you are doing and look forward to seeing more of your work.
I particularly like your blog about getting things right in camera – so much easier than un-necessary processing afterwards.
….just a heads up as you will have an anonymous request on FB (they don’t seem to give the option of typing a message these days!)

Best wishes


Jo Julia Ramsey - Love it! I especially love the portrait with the “cone heads”! Who would’ve thought of that? …Oh, Anahy did 🙂

Marissa - I agree with everything said about Anahy! She is a totally awesome photographer and I’m glad she is recording the recognition for it!

Chrissie Spate - It is so awesome to read what Adam wrote about Anahy. She is such a wonderful person. And as always….LOVE the photos!

Maria Gruner - She is an amazing artist! and a very good friend indeed 🙂 I love what you wrote about her, Adam.

Alan Antiporda - Excellent blog and observations about Ms. Anahy, she is definitely creative and professional, but she also has an amazing sense of humor. Once again, a very nice tribute about serendipitous friendships.

Carrissa South - I agree. I have known this one- of- a- kind person sine high school. I love her, and it’s nice to see how much of her shines through her work. Your amazing Anahy! I’m glad you wrote this wonderful piece about her Adam, she deserves every beautiful word you wrote about her. Congratulations my friend! =) Love ya!

Caitlin Cantando - Anahy is an amazing photographer and person. I loved reading this awesome blog about her. She definitely deserves to be recognized for her beautiful work and you did an awesome job doing that. Love you miss Anahy! 🙂

P.S. The photo of yourself at the very top is awesome as well. Such a cool idea and great colors.

Anahy Ruelas - Where do I press the love button?! This made my year. Thank you for your very kind words. God bless you, friend.

My Favorite Photographer!!!

  After several months I’m finally ready to share with you my absolute favorite photographer. I doubt my love for this man’s work will ever change. As I’ve shared before, “What seals a person as a “favorite” is their ability to change my mind. Their ability to change my understanding of the artistic expression“. I’ve […]

Sara - Thanks for sharing Adam! He is phenomenal! I definitely think it is great to glean inspiration from a myriad of places, and not just other wedding photographers-especially to create a distinct style within the industry (which you definitely have). I feel like I could stare at the very first image in his “style” gallery for hours and never grow tired of it. I also love your photo at the top of this post-it’s always been a favorite!

Second Favorite Photographer

  Early in my photographic journey a friend of mine told me to check out his friend’s website. He posted a link to this friend on my Facebook wall. Unfortunately I made a prideful mistake. I did exactly what I hate, I assumed that this “friend of my friend” was just a nobody. After all, […]

Jo Ramsey - Ha! I always make that mistake (assuming the worst) when people recommend photographers to me, unless it’s you or a select few other friends who know what’s up. I think now I’m more inclined to not want to check out other people’s work cause it can also be discouraging! (But I know that’s a crap attitude!)

So honestly, I think you could easily just take all of the “Jeremy Cowart”s in this blog, and replace it with “Adam Allen”. Everything you said you admire about him sounds just like you. The humility and openness to share with anyone, without the pretentious attitude, is what so inspired me about you. The fact that you are an amazing artist only makes that more valuable. Yep. I think it’s super rad that you chose him as your second photographer. And that you are so much like him. I just know that the next thing I know, I’m going to see you shooting U2 or ZZ Top or something crazy amazing like that:). As much as you’ve grown even since I’ve known you, I am blown away that you still take time for the little guys!

I really enjoyed this blog!! Thanks for taking the time to do this!!
