We’ve worked together on a couple of weddings already and have several more on the books in the coming months. Kevin and Sarah Cochran, the husband & wife team behind 718 Creative, are absolutely incredible, and their passion for creating gorgeous wedding films and connecting with their couples is outstanding!

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!)

When I first heard about the “first look” trend several years ago, I was pretty strongly against it. I’m a pretty traditional gal in a lot of ways, so I immediately wrote it off as something I would NEVER do once my wedding day finally arrived. Haha, I was wrong. As I’m writing this post, […]

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
