Allie COats


Meet my second family and right-hand crew.

From wrangling our Instagram account, to scheduling sessions, to on-the-ground wedding day support, Allie – literally – does all the things! Blessed doesn’t even begin to cover how lucky I am to have this precious friend on my team.

Before joining Shea Gibson Photography, Allie built Allie’s on Magnolia, a successful women’s clothing boutique and gift shop in downtown Laurel, Mississippi. She brings with her 5+ years of business and marketing expertise, and boy, does she put it to work, making sure our clients have the best experience possible at every touchpoint.

When she isn't being our behind-the-scenes magic maker, you can find Allie soaking up all the time she can with her son Graham and his little sister-to-be, Mary Conner.

Worrying over hair and makeup shouldn’t cross your mind for even a second when you’re stepping up to the plate to make memories with your loved ones. Kimber Smith enters the chat.

Kimber is a certified stylist with 5+ years of experience in her field, splitting her time between the pageant world and the wedding industry. She is an absolute treasure of a human and a wonderful asset to the studio – kind, caring, and so, so accomplished at what she does.

Treating yourself to a hair and makeup styling session with Kimber before your shoot is the ultimate. You’ll feel loved, pampered, and radiantly gorgeous from the inside out after your time with her.

Along with serving our brides and moms, you can find Kimber uplifting women even further in her work as a pageant coach and stylist.

Megan Cook


Rockstar is an understatement when it comes to Mrs. Megan Cook! She is an out-of-this-world talented wedding videographer, second photographer, and (when she’s not behind the lens herself) my go-to assistant for all things weddings.

Her videography gifts are second to none, serving both our couples in love and our families with motherhood films. Every photo feels all the more special when brought into moving focus through Megan’s story-rich videos. Imagine watching your baby’s newborn session years from now. We can’t even!

Outside of her time at the camera helm, you can find Megan snuggled up with her husband and two Goldendoodles, watching true-crime tv shows and documentaries, or grabbing lunch at The Alamo.
