and i'm so happy you're here!

hi, I'm alison!

about me

My name is Alison Brooke Helms, I'm a Texan, I drive almost exclusively with the windows down, and I feel most myself when I’m behind my camera.

I’ve been a wedding and portrait photographer for seven years, and I started my business when I was 16!  I relocated to Oklahoma City in 2018 to get my Bachelors Degree in Journalism and liked it so much I decided to stick around. I believe there are stories to be found everywhere, and I think one of my greatest purposes in this life is to document people.

I love the moon, bad Hallmark movies, and wildflowers. When I’m not shooting, you can find me browsing the aisles of an antique store or slingin' spro at OKC's best coffee shop (you'll have to ask me for the rec sometime).

my mission

History is not just the figures we read about in textbooks. History is the black and white photograph of your grandparents cutting their wedding cake that has been hanging on the wall for as long as you can remember. History is personal. History is real. History is for everyone because every individual being has one.

That’s why I want to give you breath-takingly beautiful heirloom photographs that you (and future generations) will be able to look back on with fond memories and a little bit of magical nostalgia.

I believe in intentional artistry, extraordinarily ordinary moments, and fun.
