Blog - Wedding Photographer in Dallas - Alison Heffington Photography



Welcome to my blog—my journal about my recent work, faith, wedding planning tips, and education for photographers. Grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile!

WELCOME, I'M Alison!

One of my favorite types of sessions are bridal portraits! I just love this Southern tradition and think it’s such a fun thing to incorporate into your wedding photography experience. Your wedding day will go by so quickly, and sometimes the timeline doesn’t allow us a ton of portrait time! That’s why I love having an opportunity to work with you one-on-one to take some gorgeous images of you in a stress-free environment!

Tips for Preparing for Your Bridal Session

Isn’t Monica such a gorgeous bride?! I didn’t think I was going to be able to share these photos from Monica’s Waco bridal session yet since Monica & Josh weren’t supposed to be married until April, but these two eloped just one week after these were taken due to COVID-19! (You can view photos from their perfect intimate ceremony here!)

Maybe you’re a small business owner, blogger, or mom, and you’ve been looking for ways to document your life, work, or products using the camera you already own—the one on your phone! Or maybe you were like me a few years ago, knowing how to use your fancy DSLR camera but refusing to let your […]

After Monica & Josh had to postpone their wedding day due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they got creative and planned an intimate elopement in Waco, Texas.

All this time at home due to everything that’s going on in our world right now has given me lots of time to edit & blog my recent photo sessions, and I couldn’t wait to share this one with the world!! I’d met up with Amanda & Bobby before at an open house for their venue and they were just so sweet! I couldn’t wait to see them again for their engagement session!!

It’s been awhile since I shared one of my editorial shoots from The Olana! This was my very last shoot of the day and it was FREEZING. The poor model was shaking and my fingers were numb and hardly able to press the button on my camera! But despite the less than ideal weather circumstances, this shoot was absolutely stunning and was one of my favorites!

I can’t even begin to tell you how many newly-engaged girls have reached out to me for their wedding photography and shared that they’re feeling super overwhelmed by the planning process. Maybe they don’t have the time to figure everything out on their own, or maybe they don’t even know where to begin!

I feel like Dallas has been extra cloudy & rainy lately, so I was a little nervous that we’d have to reschedule Bryttin & Bryan’s engagement session! But nope!! Instead we got the most perfect weather imaginable! Sunny & warm with a slight breeze just can’t be beat!! And I was so happy we got such a beautiful day because Bryttin and I have been emailing back and forth for months trying to find a day that worked for their engagement session, and we finally made it happen!

I am so excited to share these photos from Hanah & Keon’s GORGEOUS springtime wedding!! These two make one of the sweetest couples I have ever met, and I just feel SO honored to have been a part of their big day!
