Allie Richards

I’m Allie, the owner & principal photographer of Allie Richards Photography. I’m happy to say I’m a year-round resident of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and I’ve been shooting landscapes and weddings for over ten years now.

When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me selling my landscapes at art shows and festivals across New England, teaching photo workshops and tours, or working as a web manager for other local businesses. I’m a big fan of traveling the world - my photography has taken me across the United States, Iceland, Norway, The Faroe Islands, The Azores, parts of Europe, and more.

After graduating from Simmons College, an all-women’s college in Boston with a degree in psychology, I joined BlueHour Photo Ventures with my awesome business partner and good friend, Paul. I spent a lot of time observing how a photographer could make a living. In 2018, I started taking my photography more seriously, and decided to ditch the PhD plans to pursue what I’m best at: working behind the camera.


Come visit me in my artist cottage at the Orleans Artist Cottages in the summer or fall, on Rt. 6A, Orleans, MA, or consider learning photography from me and other talented instructors with BlueHour on one of our photo workshops or tours.
