Intimate by Allison Hernach – Advanced bookings for June

Your photographs are an integral part of your life–important mementoes of time and significant events. Having professional portraits of yourself taken is a rare treat… but you are worth it! We can spend so much time and effort on our appearance, yet so little on capturing it for the future. Photographs become a treasured possession, more and more valuable over time. They are impossible to replace, and have value to their owners beyond measure. For this reason, Allison limits the number of sessions per month to ensure adequate time is reserved for each client, and so each one receives her custom creative touch and the highest standard of quality.

If you are considering having an Intimate photo shoot, now is the time to book as we have opened our dates up for June …  This will give you a couple of months to prepare and give you an amazing experience to look forward to!



You will be amazed at how easy and empowering an intimate shoot can be! You will have so much fun during your photo shoot and you will LOVE the end result.

All bookings taken this month for June, will receive a complimentary 5″x7″ print. Limited places available. Contact Allison today at or telephone 0430 134 165.  You will love it!

Wedding Day Moments — Megan + Benjamin

Flowers: Poppies Flowers
Hair: Friends of the Bride

Wedding Venue: Golding Wines
Reception Caterer: Owen Andrews Catering

I distinctly remember the first time I met Megan.  I had just opened the doors to my new office at Norwood and she came flouncing in and I liked her immediately. She kicked her shoes off and said “Do you mind if I sit on the floor?”… and that’s how we bonded and chatted about her upcoming wedding to the love of her life, Ben… both sitting, barefoot, on the floor.  Loved it.

To say that I adored Megan + Ben’s wedding is an understatement. I knew it would be fabulous, but I didn’t realise it would be that fabulous! They were married on a beautiful day in March, 2012,  and everything was absolutely stunning, the weather.. the venue.. the wedding dress.. the details… But it was the people that made it so amazing– everyone was so warm and welcoming, and there was a real sense of family, unity and genuine happiness on the day. Megan + Ben are a brilliant couple, so in love and so much fun. And their bridal party were a bunch of laughs, as you will see in the photos below!

Please enjoy a few of my many favourites from their day! We’ll start with the handsome groom and his hilarious groomsmen…

 Meet Megan — happily writing her speech.

 Megan’s dad taking a quiet moment away from all of the frivolities happening inside.:)

This little cherub soon got over her tears from earlier in the morning and couldn’t wait to show me her pretty dress!

It’s always exciting when it’s time for the Bride to get dressed!

It was an absolutely beautiful moment when Megan’s dad saw her in her wedding dress for the first time…

Time to say ‘I do’!

Let the celebration begin!

Megan + Ben, it was a pleasure spending the day with you. Thank you for allowing me to capture these wonderful memories for you.

Reception: Stamford Grand

It’s been almost a year since Rebecca + David’s wedding day, but I can remember it like it was yesterday. Both Rebecca + David had previously been in the bridal party of a wedding I photographed a few years ago and they were absolutely gorgeous that day, so I knew that their own day would be fabulous… and it was!

The morning of their wedding went smoothly, and the day turned out beautifully — the sun shone happy and bright. After the ceremony, we headed down to Glenelg to get some gorgeous shots on the beach… it was a little too windy for poor Rebecca and her veil, but she did an amazing job of working with it and we all had a lot of fun.  Their reception was at the Stamford Grand, always a great place overlooking the ocean, and everyone celebrated, laughed and danced their way late into the night!

Becc + Dave are incredibly nice people and it was such a joy getting to know them and documenting their amazing day. I wish them every happiness in their future together!

Rebecca looked so stunning. LOVED her dress!

Becc’s Grandmother was overwhelmed at how stunning she looked.

Dave gave two thumbs up when he heard that Becc had arrived… Cute.

The happy newlyweds!

The reception was fabulous… full of lots of love, and ALOT of laughter!

Becc + Dave, thank you for allowing me to capture these memories for you!
And a BIG thank you for all your tips regarding our holiday in Amsterdam!  We loved it 😉

They had a fabulous bunch of friends and family as their bridal party who were a lot of fun… especially at the end of the day when they all raced each other on the track at the Morphetville Race Course!

Since their wedding (which was almost a year ago!) Amanda + Cheyne have welcomed their first child into the world– a beautiful and special little girl, Amarli.  She is the apple of her parents eye and they are simply amazing parents. Congratulations again guys!

Here is a collection of my favourites from their fabulous day…


Amanda + Cheyne, you are fabulous. I’m so pleased we stay in touch and I can’t wait to watch Amarli grow into a little girl just as beautiful as her mummy is.


Official Launch of “Intimate by Allison Hernach” and our new website!

It has taken 18 months of planning, dreaming and imaging, but it’s finally here…  I am pleased to formally unveil Intimate by Allison Hernach and our brand new website!

Intimate is a project that is very dear to my heart – I long to see women embrace their own unique beauty and capture it for them forever. Intimate brings together some of my long-treasured goals and beliefs – that every woman is beautiful regardless of shape, size, colour or ethnic origin. Sometimes we don’t see ourselves as gorgeous or attractive, or  as other people may see us, so I aim to bridge that gap.

Intimate by Allison Hernach has two main elements: Fine Art Nudes and Intimately You. Our passion is to create beautiful pieces of art that are unique and truly reflect who YOU are. You will be amazed at how much fun and empowering an Intimate photography shoot can be. Beyond creating art, this is an indulgent experience in celebrating YOU.

Even if you’re only slightly curious, send me an email or jump on the phone – I’d love to talk and explain more about Intimate in detail. Having professional portraits of yourself taken is a rare treat… but you are worth it! We can spend so much time and effort on our appearance, yet so little on capturing it for the future.  Why not take the first step towards something exciting and new!



And to celebrate the launch of Intimate by Allison Hernach we have a fabulous offer to spoil yourself with, or would be the perfect gift to spoil the one you love on Valentine’s Day!  (see offer below)



Please visit our new website by visiting and have a look around the sites (both WEDDINGS and INTIMATE) and enjoy some of the gorgeous people we’ve had the pleasure of photographing. You might even see yourself there!


Love & kisses
