Grant and Bentley

"Marriage is not a noun; it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way you love your partner every day." Barbara De Angelis

   The second I met Grant and Bentley I knew their wedding day would be great. They are such a sweet, enjoyable and laid back couple. I barely had to tell them to do anything during pictures. I just captured them in their element being sweet together.  I also discovered my favorite wedding venue, Oak Island at Lay Lake. What a beautiful place to get married! This gorgeous antebellum home was the perfect setting for Grant and Bentley's union and the start of the wonderful life together. I'm so excited for these two!

Stephen and Amberlee

I was so honored to be a part of Stephen and Amberlee's special day. We spent most of the day getting ready at the Huntsville Country Club where we also did most of our portraits. The ceremony was at the Murphy Hill Baptist Church in Toney, Al. The reception to follow was back at the country club. After a week of cold and snowy weather, we were blessed with a beautiful warm day.  We could not have asked for a more perfect day. So excited for you two!!

Jordan and Riley

I was so blessed to be a part of Jordan and Riley's wedding. It took place at the wonderfully romantic Barn at Shady Lane. Riley's elegant dress from Bella's had a fun detachable skirt for two different looks through the day. The day was full of fun, friends and canines with this dog loving couple. Thank you again Jordan and Riley for allowing me to capture your special day!

Sam and Haley

I spent my Saturday with two adorable people that are just made for each other, Sam and Haley. They were wed at the historic Sheffield Chapel near Florence. This chapel was built in 1891 and you can practically feel the history in the building. The theme of the day was pink with Haley's blush dress, pink ring and flowers, and strawberry cake and punch. I'm so happy for you two! Your day was gorgeous!

Alan and Jordan

My Saturday was spent with these awesome people at Sloss Furnace. This landmark has now become one of my favorite wedding venues. The industrial chic look of the furnace gave Alan and Jordan's wedding day a fun, laid back vibe that fit this couple perfectly. The couple and the wedding party had so much fun and really enjoyed the day. I have never seen a more relaxed and happy bride than Jordan. She was great! This wedding was a blast!

Special thanks to Chuck Tatum and Amy DeLoach helping capture this day!

Shannon and Haley

Though Shannon and Haley's wedding took place in February it looked and felt like a cozy spring day.  The ceremony, which took place at Circlewood Baptist Church in Tuscaloosa, had the audience crying and laughing. The entire wedding party and family danced down the isle as they left. From the church they headed for a romantic reception at the River Market. This industrial chic venue was the perfect location for good food and a night of dancing. It was an incredible day and I was so blessed to have the opportunity to capture it for them.

Special thanks to Charles Tatum for being my right hand man!

Branson and Kalyn

This sweet couple got married overlooking a cliff at Monte Sano State Park. It was a beautiful day despite the cold weather. The ceremony was so sweet and fun that I caught myself lowering my camera and laughing with them as if I were in the audience. Kalyn and Branson, your day was perfect!

Special thanks to my other photographers Chuck Tatum and Amy DeLoach. You two are awesome!

Baby Alice

How cute is this family? Little Alice is 4 months old and loves to hear herself talk. The puppies aren't too sure what to think of that but I know they will be best buds one day.
