Kiss the Bride Wedding Photography is New England’s premier award-winning wedding photography service. We won The Knot’s Hall of Fame Award and The Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Award. Our work has been featured in Borrowed & Blue and Seacoast Weddings. Owner and Lead Photographer, Allison Sica, has 10+ years experience shooting weddings. She is a full-time wedding photographer. Her photography has garnered praise for its unique and candid approach; she captures not just the image but also the essence of your special events. Each of our packages can be custom tailored to fit your needs and preferences; we will work with you before the wedding to understand your style and develop a pose list, saving you time on the big day.

To make absolutely certain that our work will meet and exceed your expectations, each photographer has a full kit of backup equipment and second-shooters are trained to shoot independently, providing a level of consistency that few of our competitors can match. On the day of the event, we will be there with the utmost professionalism and a smile, ready to capture the most joyous day of your lives in our unique photo-journalistic style. We will offer guidance and direction when it comes to posing so we can give you the most flattering photos. We truly believe that if you feel comfortable with your wedding photographer, your photos will look authentic. We’re always looking for those natural, in-between moments between couples.  We photograph thirty to forty weddings per year.

ALLISON SICAOwner & Lead Photographer

Allison Sica is the creative force behind Kiss the Bride. With a background in photojournalism, she brings a strong sense of storytelling to each wedding she shoots. Allison’s candid style and friendly and outgoing approach have been key to her success. She is a professionally-trained photographer with comprehensive knowledge of the wedding industry. Allison is a Jill-of-All-Trades: she is the company designer, photographer, and leader. She has a BA from Southern New Hampshire University. Allison lives in rural Wilton, NH with her other half, Rob as well as their rescue dogs — Lucy and Ricky, and cats Bowie and Spock.

“I absolutely love storytelling, it’s such an honor to capture those once in a lifetime memories for my clients. Whenever I’m at a wedding, I’m constantly looking for those quiet, candid moments. For me, it’s all about searching for the people that are bursting with joy or wiping away happy tears.  When I’m not behind my lens, I’m usually expressing myself in different ways through music and art. I almost always have a paintbrush, a camera or a guitar in my hands on any given day.”

“Allison has a tremendous talent for showcasing not only the beauty of the day, but of the emotions within the bride and groom, and within their guests as well. To capture all of that speaks volumes for Kiss the Bride Wedding Photography.” – Denise, Campton, NH

A Blessing

“Allison and Nikki were a blessing sent to us on our wedding day. We had booked Allison about a year and a half in advance and moved our wedding date, switched times, timeline, you name it.. I changed it. Every time I reached out to her there was no frustration, just calm, kind words of support. Not only did they capture some of the most beautiful photos of our wedding, they went above and beyond. They stayed a little later than anticipated because we were running late. They also were genuinely friends to me that day. I was so nervous, so stressed, and every time I spoke to one of them they brought me back down to earth and reminded me to enjoy the day and take it all in. They helped with my dress, veil, shoes, everything. I would have spent double for the service and product I got from them. There is not a price tag on kindness. The photos were breathtaking and so perfectly captured our day. If you are hesitant about booking, don’t be. You are in the very best of hands. We will be using them for every photo moving forward (and we live in NY) but it’s worth it for us to make the trip to NH to use them. Again, you cannot put a price tag on their kindness and thoughtfulness.”

“Both Allison and Nicole were amazing to work with both leading up to and on our wedding day! Both were extremely flexible and professional throughout the entire day and our wedding party and us had such a fun time throughout the day taking pictures and interacting. Leading up to the wedding, we were able to do an engagement shoot with Allison which was a perfect way to get to know her and communicate our style and what we were looking for in the photos. It also took off the edge a bit prior to the wedding and we got some wonderful photos at the end that we were able to use for pre-wedding events! On the wedding day itself, Allison and Nicole had our list of photos and timeline ready to go. They made sure to capture everything we specified as well as other moments throughout the day that resulting in some of our favorite photos. They were so much fun to work with and our entire wedding party and family loved working with them. They were also extremely flexible and agile as our plans changed throughout the day. What I appreciated the most is that they were able to get everything we wanted and move through all of the family and group photos efficiently so that our wedding party and family was still able to enjoy part of the cocktail hour. Neither my husband or I typically take a lot of photos, so we were a bit nervous about having an entire day of photo taking, but Allison and Nicole made it fun and the time flew by! Our photos from the wedding are gorgeous! We loved them and are having a hard time picking only a few of our favorites to frame and give to family members! I appreciated that they gave us different angles and lighting of a lot of the photos as well as made sure to capture some cool night shots and reaction shots of our guests throughout the day. We could not recommend them enough and hope to be able to work with them for future photos!”

Amazing Photographer and Wonderful Person

“Working with Allison was one of the easiest aspects of planning our wedding! Once we met her we knew that she was to be a great fit for us. We really liked the simple style of her photographs and that they captured real emotion. She was very professional and was wonderful to work with for a couple of people who are not used to taking lots of photos. She got some great shots of our dog too! Photos were delivered quickly and we would happily recommend her to anyone.”
