About - Alan R. Ball (ballphotos)

I’ve viewed the world through a camera for more than forty years, and though I’ve won awards at art shows and festivals like Red Earth and Cherokee Art Market, I’m still as excited and passionate about photography today as I was when I first borrowed my sister’s Kodak 126! My work is a mix of wedding, landscape and portraiture with the occasional bit of fantasy thrown in just to see what happens. Like all artists, I love experimenting and pushing the boundaries of digital photography that creates images with a narrative because creative images make lasting memories.

I invite you to explore the images on my website or view them at 50 Penn Place Art Gallery and Contemporary Art Gallery.

My experience with Alan was a Boudoir session. As a recent bride and woman in general, I most definitely encourage others to book a Boudoir session with Alan. The session was comfortable, professional and over the top fun. Alan made me feel that not only would my husband enjoy the images but that I would love myself in them as well. Boudoir is often outside of a woman's comfort zone, so it was extremely important to me that I felt empowered, confidant and comfortable with such personal photography. If this is what you're trying to achieve, Alan is the photographer for you! I was thrilled with my images! It was such a worthwhile and fulfilling experience. My husband cried when I gave him the images for Valentine's Day and he couldn't say enough about Alan and the photos. The photos were high in quality, extremely creative, artistic and made me feel both classy and sexy. My husband and I are so grateful for the experience and for a photographer who made us feel like family. We simply cannot say enough about Alan Ball and his photography. Alan's photos made Valentine's Day 2016 the best one yet! I am extremely thankful for and blessed by Alan Ball. If you're looking for a family oriented, talented, professional, flexible, valued photographer who will capture your lifetime memories, he is the one. I cannot wait to book future sessions!

All my gratitude,

Claris Bahm

The pics were beyond a hit! I got a large photo album and filled it with prints and gave it to my husband for Valentine’s Day. He absolutely loved it! He said he was super proud of me for taking the photos and even had some sweet tears in his eyes! He was overwhelmed! Then he told me that he owed you a drink and wanted to hug you and thank you for taking them :) I was overwhelmed by his response! So wonderful! Thank you a million times and more!

Alan and his assistant did a phenomenal job at our wedding and our photographs are amazing! He makes you feel comfortable and provides insight for memorable shots. He even seemed to be part of the family as my mother in law wanted to have him in a picture with some of the family members. : ) Our wedding venue had him listed as one of their preferred vendors and we were impressed with him upon the first meeting. We enjoy his artistic and creative flare as he has a great passion for what he does thus making him truly one of kind. We enjoyed working with Alan and I would recommend him for any occasion!




I loved having Alan as my photographer. He was professional and warm. He made us all feel like family. One of my favorite things was we had him the entire day of my wedding, he came in the morning to get some of the girls getting hair and makeup done. He got some really great candid shots that I love. I would definitely recommend him to anyone not just for wedding.




Alan was great to work with. He did our engagement and wedding photography, as well as my bridal session. I loved that he was completely dedicated to the sessions. He spent hours with us to get great photos so we did not feel rushed by a time limit. He was sure to get the photos we wanted and suggested great backdrops that would look best. Alan is not your cookie-cutter photographer because he adds an artistic flare to many of the photos, which was exactly what we were looking for. He was also very good at getting the big moment photos during the ceremony without being the focus. I have no complaints and would highly recommend him if you are looking for artistic photography at a great price.
