    Browse around my blog to get an idea of my most recent portrait sessions and wedding shenanigans.
    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment to discuss your photograph needs.

Asha and Frank….Mountain View Gardens and Ballroom

Yesterday I had the pleasure of providing professional photography for a fun group of people! They were so deeply in love with each other, and so kind and giddy! It really made me take a step back and evaluate how special a day is when the group you choose to surround your big day with is as special as the special person you are going to marry.

I was recently asked by a potential client if I was a “fun” photographer…of course I like to think so…but maybe I needed to ask…”Well how fun is your wedding party?”  When the people you are spending an entire day of planning, little stresses and some hiccups are there to do nothing but make you laugh and have fun..well that might be the biggest concern you need to have and the pro is just there with the capability to capture those laughs, goof-offs, mess-ups, and the occasional unzipped pair of pants :))))) I hope that in the end I add to the fun…maybe not so much provide it…because yesterday for me was just a blast of fun, laughs, and sweet memories. SO when you see these sneaks please know I have plenty of the wanted artsy photos…these are a few of those sprinkled into the fun ones.:)

Kat Hobson - I LOVE that you were part of their day! The pics I’ve seen are fabulous, & you were fun while you got them :) Thank you so much for the excellent attention to detail and the professionalism not stopping you from having a good time too!

Katie and Trey Huntsville Alabama wedding

When Katie contacted me about being her wedding photographer I was not only overjoyed but reminded of the importance that doing a good job creates the best kind of business. “Word of mouth” and trust. I am over joyed at her complete confidence that I would create and capture her wedding day in a manner she would be proud of for years to come.  I am also very proud to say that our paths crossed years ago, as a result of one of my sweet brides sharing my service with her. As a result of her kindness I have worked with many people whom I now have the pleasure of calling client/friends. Getting to catch up and see them at other family and friends events truly fills my heart with pride.  Thankful just is not enough of a word to truly express how I feel.

Hopefully these photos will give a peek inside the beautiful wedding day that we were blessed with….and it included a 15 year first for this photographer….SNOW!! ( We do not get that much in Alabama and normally it would postpone an event!)  Instead of writing an essay about all the things I want to share I will simply share these photos. They represent an amazing blessed day and the fact that God does indeed answer prayers…because as beautiful as snow is it can really mess up an event on a mountain side here in Alabama!

Carmen Milligan - What beautiful photographs of this wonderfully sweet couple. I love how you used the snow to add special touches, but the the most marvelous things about these photos is the fact that you captured the love Trey and Katie have for one another. The perfect photographer for the beautiful day!

The Claytons…wedding in Gadsden Alabama

Courtney and Kevin had a beautiful wedding at Southside Baptist and a reception at The Pitman theater in Gadsden. Although Mother Nature may have tried to keep us hemmed up inside for the day, in the end we had the last laugh running around the streets of Gadsden playing in front of the theater and other fun spots.

Even though we didn’t get to go play in the fields and run around on the country roads like planned I think we got some fun stuff for them to remember all the great family and friends who were there to see the beginning of their journey as Mr and Mrs Clayton!

Hope your Honeymoon was full of sunshine!

SEN15Rs ..Anna for BCS

Rolling right along getting some senior c/o 2015 professional photos done! Spent a steamy afternoon with Ms. Anna D. She and our lil group went around a few new spots downtown and played with some her awesome clothes! Try as we might we did not find a random kayak like I had hoped but we did get a nice selection of photographs to commemorate her senior year! Pretty soon it will be May and you will be picking out which ones to use for announcements…remember to take it all in and enjoy every moment this year!

Whitley and Daniel…wed in Birmingham Alabama

It has taken a few days to gather my thoughts…and honestly the time I needed to properly blog about this beautiful touching wedding at St Mary’s on the southside

The bride is a young beautiful woman I have known since she was 5 to be factual. I had the pleasure of having her Mother as a client for many years when I did nails at  Resultz Day Spa for many years. My time as a nail tech gave me the ability to meet, know and make some of the most loyal friends I will ever have. Although we may not speak once a week like we did then I keep up with them and in this case when a wedding was planned I was given the honor to be the professional choice of photography.  I might add this task was an honor knowing Whitley’s father and husband to be have a photography back ground! WHEW talk about wanting to hit the mark! I hope she and her sweet Mother Alice are as proud of the day reflected in these photographs as I am. I teared up several times on this day for many reasons…old friends, loyalty, trust and seeing a 5yo girl experience life as a woman can do that to you…..and I am thankful!
