Allebach Photography is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide!

We know our sponsor Mike Allebach, as a punk rock, Philadelphia wedding photographer, and an occasional Offbeat Bride guest blogger. If you're getting married on the East Coast, you should get to know him as “your future wedding photographer.” And I'm basing that not only on how incredible his photography is, I'm also basing that what he wrote when our website robots asked him to describe himself (for the umpteenth time):

fun stuff. amazing stuff. happy people. naked people. unicorns. tattoos. the gays!

All of those things are awesome. All of those things describe our readers. And all of those things are what makes Allebach Photography awesome. Check it out…

Happy people


You want to do a photo shoot with your wedding party all wearing masks? Hell yeah! Mike's gonna shoot the hell out of that. You want to get married in a purple gown amongst sharks? Not a problem. Are you a fire-breathing couple who wants to do a trash the dress shoot? Mike's game, and the photos will be a-blaze-ing. (See what I did there?)

Mike's happy when you're happy. And all that happiness makes amazing images.

Naked people!


Mike's been KILLING IT with his boudoir photography. Half the reason I follow his Instagram account is to peep those sexy images from time to time.

And dudes, don't think that boudoir sessions are just for the ladies. You can rock some equally scintillating images too…


Mmmm mmmm mmmm… If you're on the East Coast, you're totally missing out if you don't book him for a boudoir shoot right now!

The gays!


As Mike has explained, “No matter what group, condition, life-stage or lifestyle you consider yourself to belong to, I can photograph your union and your partner in crime… All I ask is that you show your true colors.” You can rest assured that Allebach Photography is LGBT-friendly AF. He even has an entire section of his site devoted to same-sex wedding photography. It's gorgeous over there.

Unicorns and tattoos and fun stuff!


I think this unicorn, that Mike has featured on his site, pretty much sums up how you'll feel after you book Allebach Photography for your wedding or your boudoir shoot or your engagement photos. Wanna feel like a tatted up, rainbow-colored, mythical creature who can freaking fly!? Then ask Mike Allebach to help you achieve your unicorn dreams!
