Matt and I have now been married for 5.5 years, and met almost 7 years ago. We celebrated our anniversary this past January by modeling in a session for a fellow photographer (Cindy Maiyer Photography!). We ran through fields, jumped over streams, snuggled close for  warmth and laughed until our faces hurt. It’s absolutely hard […]

Arizona Christmas Activities | Phoenix, Arizona | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

Before moving to Arizona, Matt and I vowed to make a trip to see the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Since I knew I would be heading back to Missouri just a few weeks after moving to Arizona, I decided to do all the needed research in advance. Man, am I glad I […]

A lot of people ask how Matt and I met and why we’ve lived in so many different places together. Guess what? You’re about to get the inside scoop! I met Matt two weeks after I graduated High School (June 16, 2012 to be exact), in the little town of Mahomet, Illinois at a VBS […]

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park | Allison + Matt | San Diego, California | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

As you may remember, this past Fall my husband and I bought our first house! It felt like a super long process of looking at a million houses, making lots of offers, feeling discouraged and then finding the perfect one when we weren’t expecting it (major thanks to our realtor Jessica Krieger for being so […]
