WELCOME, I'M Alison!

I feel like I’m just now getting caught up on blogging so many of my sessions and weddings from the past couple of months! The past two weeks or so have been slower which I am SO grateful for, and I took a much-needed break from showing up on the Internet and social media as much as I normally do! Things are about to get crazy again this week with two weddings & three engagement sessions, but I feel much more energized and ready to handle all the coming work now!

Emilee & Connor’s cozy wedding at Dove Ridge Vineyard in Weatherford, Texas, was the perfect way to do a southern winter wedding.

Maggie & Brett’s wedding was so much fun for so many different reasons!! First of all, it was so cool (and kinda strange!) to be back at The Grand Ivory less than a month after our own wedding there! I just love this venue so much (obviously, lol), and I loved seeing how another couple made it their own for their wedding day!

Secondly, I got to second shoot for my friend Courtney! We met back in the summer and I’ve loved that I got to work with her again! Connecting with other photographers and wedding vendors is one of my favorite things!!!

And last but certainly not least, Maggie, Brett, and both their families were SO.MUCH.FUN!!!! You’ve gotta keep scrolling to the end so you can see Maggie’s amazing father-daughter dance!

Not only were Maggie & Brett so much fun to be around, but they had one of the sweetest first looks I’ve ever seen. They read each other letters, and even though I couldn’t hear what they were saying to one another, the love between them was so apparent that I started tearing up a bit! 😂

Hope you’re not sick of wedding images from The Olana yet (but how could you be?! This venue is amazing!)! I am such a sucker for a neutral color palette, and it just doesn’t get better than black, white, gold, and greenery! I love this for a winter wedding (especially NYE!) or really for any time of the year! It just looks so perfectly elegant and classic.

I think my favorite part though has to be the bride & groom details! Unfortunately, I think these little detail shots often don’t get the time and attention they deserve on a wedding day because they aren’t a huge priority for everyone. And that’s okay! But images of the small things like the delicate pearl bracelet or the perfume you wore on your wedding day are so important. These small, sentimental details help make your day unique to you!

Okay enough of my rambling! Check out some of my favorites from this black tie wedding at The Olana below!

Courtney & Zach’s wedding at the Trinity River Audubon Center was STUNNING. Zach is an architect, so it made perfect sense why they would choose this venue for their big day! The building itself was amazing and had such an interesting, modern design to it. But to make it even better, it’s located on a nature preserve! The whole area around the building was full of trees, grasses, and wildlife. Plus, the area where the reception was held had a wall of windows that really brought the outdoors inside!

I’m back with another intimate wedding editorial from The Olana! Ohhh man, I love this one. This was in the Drawing Room at The Olana, with the ceremony spot being right in front of that gorgeous fireplace! I love the neutral colors throughout with the small pops of blush! I think something that this editorial […]

I was recently looking through my hard drive and I realized that I never blogged these images from Davis & Grey Farms!!! I’ve been following along with the owner Jill and her family as they built this beautiful new wedding venue north of Dallas, and I was so excited when she agreed to do a […]

Last week I mentioned that I had the opportunity to shoot at the most STUNNING venue, The Olana! The shoot I’m sharing today was the second of six wedding editorials I photographed, and it just *might* be my favorite one. This editorial was set in the Green Room at The Olana which is the most […]

I’m going to start this post off by saying GET READY to see a lot of photos from The Olana!! I recently was able to attend a photography conference at this venue and got to photograph several editorial shoots during my time there. It was absolutely STUNNING, and I can’t wait to go back for […]
