Welcome! I'm Alison, a Dallas wedding photographer, believer, wife to Hudson, and proud dog mom to Brighton. I began capturing images at the age of 13 when my dad surprised me with my very own camera, but I never could've imagined then that this one day be my job!

My business journey began in 5th grade when I opened up my first Etsy shop selling handmade wedding hair accessories. I continued that little project for several years before turning to sports photography. I used to think I'd one day be shooting on the sidelines of the Super Bowl, but instead my love of beautiful wedding details and photographing fast-paced sporting events merged into my career as a wedding photographer! When my college graduation day finally rolled around in May 2019, I made the jump to full-time in my business straight away, and I truly believe I have the BEST job in the world!!

I'm Alison! I'm so glad you're here.

The funny, smart, slightly sarcastic one who knows literally every random sports fact or stat you could ever imagine. Also the one who double checks all my math.

The photographer, wannabe fashion blogger, lover of all things neutral or dusty blue, book nerd, and coffee addict. Eats way too much chocolate every day.

The world's actual cutest dog. Lover of hopping in water fountains, naps, and jumping up on the bed to snuggle with mom as soon as dad leaves for work.

I'm a crazy dog mom! I got Brighton my senior year of college, and Hudson and I treat her like our child! She's totally spoiled and is subjected to me constantly taking photos of her.

I'm the epitome of a Type One wing Two on the Enneagram! The first time I took the test and saw my result, I was shocked by how accurate it is! I love chatting Enneagram if you're into that too!

Even though I usually spend the day in leggings and a sweatshirt (perks of working from home during the week!), I love fashion and any excuse to throw on a cute dress!

Grabbing a cup of coffee, lighting a candle, and opening up my Bible is my favorite way to start the day! I feel so much more encouraged and ready to conquer the day when I begin my day in the Word!

The summer before my junior year of college, I decided to take this passion of mine and officially start my photography business. I planned on photographing high school and college seniors like I had done for years and really enjoyed. I never imaged that a few months later, my vision for my business would take a dramatic shift and turn into one of the best decisions I could've made!

Even though I had photographed plenty of weddings before, they took on a whole new light once Hudson and I got engaged. I saw the wedding experience from my bride's perspective, and I quickly knew that I wanted to serve and celebrate couples just like me on the most important day of their lives!

Since then, I overhauled my business and created an intentional, purposeful experience for my couples that would allow them to relax and enjoy their wedding day while getting gorgeous, timeless images to adore for a lifetime! From the moment you inquire with me, I hope you feel loved, cared for, and celebrated (because you're getting MARRIED!!).

It brings me so much joy when I get to help my couples throughout the engagement season as they plan their wedding. I love being their hype-woman when the big day finally arrives and serving them throughout the entire process. Getting to celebrate with the most amazing brides and grooms as they begin their marriage is such a gift from God, and I truly believe I have the best job in the world!
