Weddings by Allebach Photography

Hello! I’m Erika, family photographer and studio manager at Allebach Photography. I’m not sure if you knew this or not, but I’ve also been a wedding photographer for over 10 years!

I remember, when I was just a little baby photographer in school, being terrified at the thought of photographing someone’s wedding! So.Much.Pressure!!

But it turned out, after the first one, I had a knack for it. And not just a knack but a passion for it!

I just love people and being asked to capture a day as momentous as a wedding is the ultimate honor as an artist. I laugh and cry along with every single couple and family because I am just that involved in the day.

I’m not even sure I can pinpoint my favorites parts of the day, because every single detail is fun for me to capture. From the details of the dress while the bride gets her hair and makeup done, to every last expression of love and joy and excitement. I seriously love it all!

So, all of this said, if you’re newly engaged or know anyone getting married and haven’t found a photographer yet, I’m here! Ready to hear all about the biggest moments to the smallest details. http://www.meetme.so/erikaschoof

10 Reasons to Live Stream Your Elopement

  • Planning a traditional wedding is crazy stressful. Every single detail ends up mattering more than it needs to. So with an elopement, you get to focus on that really matters the most in the end. The two of you.
  • Keep it simple, make it weird, design it to be yours. No one, but the two of you, are involved in making decisions. 
  • You get the simplicity of an elopement, while having everyone there. Even people who may not have ever been able to travel for your wedding.
  • That elderly relative that you love so dearly, may not make it to your wedding in 2021 or even 2022. But they can be with you, watching from afar, as you exchange vows.
  • One of you may not be able to wait another year or two for the health insurance or the tax benefits that can accompany the legal binding of marriage.
Elopements
  • Whatever you may have set aside for a traditional wedding, you can put towards a home, a honeymoon, or even an amazing party to celebrate your marriage out of quarantine!
  • Most elopements are hosted at our studio! So rain or shine, you have a beautifully decorated and professionally lit space to broadcast your ceremony. 
  • Want a destination elopement. That’s possible too and we can still live stream it to your guests! 
  • Ever been to a wedding where you couldn’t hear the bride and groom? The entire ceremony is set up with mics so everyone tuning in can laugh and cry along with you as you exchange your vows. 
  • We are your wedding planners, photographers, and videographers. We will be there, every step of the way, to make this a beautiful, intimate experience. From helping with the decor and officiant, to even helping obtain your marriage certificate. Broadcast your love and have gorgeous photographs to remember this day that was just about the two of you. 


If you were planning on getting married this year and had to postpone your reception, or were even planning an elopement to the person you love, we’re here to create a unique experience for you. Our TV and Livestreaming studio is located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We can help you get a marriage certificate and get eloped easily. Your friends and family will get to join in.

Brides Reveal Wedding Mistakes You Need to Avoid

It sounds a little crazy, but I read somewhere that thinking about what you would change about your day before it even happens is a good way to avoid mistakes.

Here’s an infographic based off of a study done by NY Magazine, showing what over 100 married brides would have changed about their wedding day planning.

We want to capture all of your hard work planning, and all of the fun that ensues, on the special day. Your wedding photography will last through the ages, make it worth while!

College of Physicians and Mutter Museum Wedding with Croquembouche: Joanne and Justin

College of Physicians and Mutter Museum Wedding with Croquembouche

What’s cool about having the College of Physicians building as your wedding venue?  Guests were able to tour the Mütter Museum during the wedding!  It also enabled us to snap some pretty sweet photos.  Check out this awesome wedding with Joanne and Justin!

That cake at the end, it’s a traditional croquembouche cake cutting with a fricken sword!  It’s a French thing.

What is a croquembouche?

“A croquembouche or “piece montee” is a wedding cake made from filled choux buns held together with caramel in an impressive pyramid… Traditionally, the top of the croquembouche would be hit with a sword, silver mallet or even a champagne bottle, cracking the top off while the bridesmaids hold up the corners of the table cloth to catch the pieces.  The croquembouche is then taken away to be broken up, or left for guests to help themselves!”  – Wedding Cakes UK
