Rising Stars: Meet Allison Easterling

Today we’d like to introduce you to Allison Easterling.

Hi Allison, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
I started this business 13 years ago, as a family photographer, and never really imagined it would be where it is at today. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t take a lot of sleepless nights and a lot of grit to run this business, because it does take that and so much more. But I also have amazing clients and vendor friends who have continued to champion my business over all of these years. I wouldn’t be here without all of them.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I’m not sure as entrepreneurs any of us can say we’ve had a smooth road. When you run your own business, you are everything. You are marketing, finance, photographer, editor, social media, etc. It takes a while to learn how to do all those things, and to do them well. I think one of the biggest struggles is doing all of this, on your own, all of the time.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m a wedding photographer, specializing in weddings and engagements in Colorado. It sounds cliche, but I think what sets my business apart from others, as with any business in this industry, is simply me. All of us are so different, we see the world differently, in different colors and hues, with different angles and details. So, when people work with me, they are getting my view of their wedding days, my attention to detail, my light and vivid style, the way I capture emotion, etc.

After all of these years, I’m most proud of the people I work with. I love my clients deeply and remain friends with them so many years after their weddings. I get to walk with them through so many seasons of life. From the engagement photos to the wedding, and later on, to babies and their growing families, This work is so special all these years later. And I’m so grateful to have that kind of relationship with my clients.

Do you have any advice for those just starting?
Be consistent. No matter what it is. Your style of photographs, your style of editing, the way you show up for people. By being consistent and steady you become a brand, a name, and a company that people know, trust, and love. I have always said that I am not the best. I can always, always learn new things.

There is always room for growth. But what I have been all these years is consistent. In showing up for people, on social media, on weddings days. behind the scenes, etc. When people know they can count on you to show up, love them, get the job done and hand them beautiful images afterward, your business grows in ways that you can only imagine.
