Nice to meet you! I'm a wedding photographer, wife, believer, and proud dog mom. I grew my business in my tiny college dorm room and took it full time when I graduated. I now live in Dallas, Texas, with my husband, Hudson, and our golden retriever, Brighton! I survive on coffee & chocolate, always have a podcast playing, and use way too many exclamation points!

Though my love of photography began at age 13, my desire to serve couples on their wedding day began when Hudson and I got engaged! Getting to celebrate with my couples (and provide lots of wedding planning tips + tricks along the way) brings me so much joy!

I'm Alison Heffington
