Why hello there . . .


I'm Alison (The A in A&M) and the main face behind this all.

Wife to my college school sweetheart Mark(M), mom to Ada Grace, daughter, sister, aunt, business owner, and photographer. I wear lots of hats and I could not be any happier in doing so! I love all things people & I cry at almost every wedding I shoot. I grew up on a cattle farm in Lawrenceburg, TN & I have a degree in business management & leadership from Austin Peay State University, Let’s Go Peay! I'm a sucker for anything local & I'm a wanna-be Gilmore Girl. I'm addicted to anything pickled & I can never say no to Samoas from the Girl Scouts.  I'm beyond grateful for this path I'm on and the ones who are traveling it with me! I've been a Knoxville, TN based wedding and family photographer for 6 years now and after a few years in this photography world, I can say with confidence that the best part of my job is meeting amazing couples, getting to document an exciting new chapter, & walking away with new friends.

There is something about capturing love stories that makes my heart skip a beat. Maybe it's documenting the beginning of a new chapter surrounded by family & friends. Maybe it's all the creative, fabulous, & southern details. Whatever it is it's amazing! And the best part is I normally get to photograph the bride and groom when they bring their first little baby into the world.

Mark is currently a personal injury attorney at FKSC Law, located near downtown Knoxville. When Mark is not practicing law, he can usually be found hunting the mountains of East TN. 

Although we are totally different in many aspects, one thing we do have in common is a love of photography. We hope you feel the love and emotion in our photos and we look forward to hearing from you!
