Meet Alison

About Our Studio

Welcome, I'm Alison! So happy you stopped by my little corner of the world. Let's visit.....I'll go first!

I was born and raised in Central Illinois in a very small town where everyone knew your name. I now call Western Kentucky home with the love of my life, my husband Jeremy. I'm a Mama to one son, but together we have 4 beautiful children and one precious grandbaby. You could say I am an adventure seeker, risk taker (those 2 together could get me in a wee bit of trouble), outdoor junkie, food aficionado, and super sentimental when it comes to anything family. They are all the loves of my life. My other love is my camera and I have it with me ALWAYS! I pack it before I do my toothbrush when leaving for an excursion. I sooooo love capturing life!!

current loves...

+ Coffee, coffee and more coffee!
+ Yummy fish tacos
+ Planning our next adventure!
+ Finding the best diner in rural America

about my journey

1994

Purchased my first camera after graduation.

1999

Had my son and realized I wanted to capture every milestone. 

2016

Started making films to capture our vacations and fell in love with this new way of documenting.

2019

Upgraded to a fancier camera to enable me to create better films. 

2020

Started filming weddings/friends as a side gig. 

2021

Launched Sweet Southern Films after much encouragement from my family.

The couple that wants to explore the forest to capture the perfect light during the golden hour. The family that is expecting or already has little kiddos running around your home. I've done it all myself! Been a new Mama, raised that little boy full of wonder and discovery and eloped to an alpine lake mountainside. I know how precious all of these times are and the importance of capturing them. Let's do this!

What I do best... Intimate weddings, couples and precious families. 

We would be the perfect fit if you are the type of bride that's willing to hike up that mountain side and get your dress dirty...

Love notes

"Alison was so patient with our family and our littles. She has a great eye and finds the best shots but not pushy about anything, she just lets life happen before the camera, so that when we got our video back it all looked so natural and fun! I've watched our video over and over and over- it's so sweet and it will always be a treasure for our family."

- Singley Family

"Our family's experience with Sweet Southern Films was so meaningful and refreshing!"

"Every clip of our maternity shoot is a wonderful way to relive the journey of our pregnancy. Alison has a way of blending the authenticity and "realness" of people with magical auras. That is special and unique.  There are not enough word's that can help me express our gratitude to Alison, because each pregnancy is a once in a lifetime experience, and she helped us capture the overwhelming love we had as we start a family. My husband and I highly encourage you to contact Alison to capture your event. I promise you will not be disappointed!"

'Sweet Southern Films' is a shining example of professionalism and creativity. Alison's artistry is unmatched, and was so consistent and very helpful during the planning stages of our shoot."

"A wedding video was not on my "must-have" list for my wedding day, but after having a video created I am so so happy that we did! We get an opportunity to live our wedding day over and over again. Also, our wedding was during Covid times so we could not have everyone there that we would have wanted, they get a way to experience our wedding now too. Alison did a wonderful job putting together all the special and fun moments of the day, she made us feel comfortable the entire time and had great ideas of moments to capture. Thank you Alison!"


"My husband and I will forever be grateful for Alison and the work that she does. She created a beautiful wedding video that we will forever cherish."
