Waco Engagements Archives -



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!

Yesterday I met up with Sarah & Alan Michael for their engagement session in Waco, and we had SO much fun!! Sarah was in the house party at Emilee & Connor’s wedding this past December which was how we initially met! But the more we started talking, the more we realized how many crazy things we had in common! Just one of those things is that we found out that she and her roommates were the ones who took over the apartment I lived in my sophomore year at Baylor, and she lived in the same room as me!! So crazy!! We also discovered we have several mutual friends and are both dog moms! I just love discovering so many little things I have in common with my couples! Sarah and Alan Michael have one of the coolest & sweetest love stories I have EVER heard! They met in Dubai on a church-planting mission trip a few years ago!! How cool is that?! These two were just the sweetest and their love for the Lord was so evident even in the short time we spent together during their shoot. I have a feeling their wedding in May is going to be one of my highlights of 2020!!

This day was SO special for so many reasons!! It seems like we were just on Baylor’s campus shooting Bri & Preston’s engagement session and talking about our wedding days! Bri & Preston got engaged right around the time that Hudson and I did, and I photographed their wedding the day after we got back […]

These two are just the sweetest!!! I had the pleasure of meeting up with Monica & Josh for their Waco engagement session, and ohhhh man, I love these images! We shot at one of my favorite locations, the Lake Waco Wetlands. Josh made the joke that it should be called the “drylands” because there was […]

Hailey and Rich’s engagement session at the Lake Waco Wetlands was one of those shoots where I just could.not.wait. to get home and edit the images!!! These two came prepared with the most perfect outfits, and we had such a beautiful location to use as a backdrop for their session! (Seriously, people—take note on their […]

Bre and Luke’s engagement session was an absolute DREAM! I was so excited to get home and start editing these images after their shoot! We were pretty worried about the rain, but the sun even came out for awhile during their session, so it was absolutely perfect! They also drove all the way from Georgetown […]

I’m so excited to share these photos from Brianna & Preston’s engagement session from last weekend! They are actually the sweetest couple ever, and we had so much fun talking about Baylor and wedding planning! They’re getting married the day after Hudson & I get back from our honeymoon, so we’re basically on the same planning timeline!!

I just love these two, and their session was just the best! I know Libby from church, and I was so excited when she asked me to be their wedding photographer! We woke up early on a Sunday morning before church for their engagement session, and ohh man it was cold! But Libby and Jeff braved the chilly, windy weather and we were able to create some magic on the camera! Libby & Jeff, I am so excited to be your wedding photographer, and I can’t wait to celebrate with y’all come April!
