Sloan & Hayden’s Birmingham Wedding [Avondale Brewery]

What a pleasure it was to photograph Sloan & Hayden’s engagement and wedding! Such a sweet and fun couple who are adored by so many friends and family. I wish I could have bottled up all the sweet things I heard said about this beautiful bride while I was roaming around with my camera on her wedding day. Would have loved to give those incredible, heartfelt words to her as she was departing. She is well loved by many, but especially by one. Congratulations Sloan and Hayden, and best wishes for future full of crazy love and happiness. Thank you for choosing me to tell your wedding story.

Leslie & John’s Rehearsal Dinner [Regions Field]

I’m so excited to share the images from John and Leslie’s Rehearsal Dinner at Regions Field, home of the Birmingham Barons. It was my first time shooting an event there and I was so impressed! What a fabulous venue with amazing 360 degree views of The Magic City!

It was a perfect night of family and dear friends celebrating John and Leslie, telling stories from childhood with laughter and tears. I left that night with the warm fuzzies from all the loving words spoken about this sweet couple. The consistent theme of everyone’s speeches…John and Leslie are loyal, self sacrificing and thoughtful. What wonderful qualities to have spoken about you, and especially before your wedding day, because those qualities will serve them so well in marriage!

More images and the unusual place I met John in their wedding blog post coming soon…

Bill & Greer’s Private Estate Reception

Last month, Bill & Greer were married in a beautiful ceremony on the beach in Grayton Beach, Florida. You can see the post of their nuptuals here. Last weekend in their hometown of Birmingham, friends threw them a reception at a private Mountain Brook estate. It was a perfect spring evening as candles flickered, musicians played, and friends and family mingled on the sprawling lawn to celebrate the newlyweds.

Greer & Bill’s Grayton Beach Wedding

Bill and Greer’s wedding in Grayton Beach, Florida, is a love story of redemption and the promise of hopeful future for two families combining as one. God is so good, His ways are perfect and we can trust and rest in that completely…always. And, speaking of trusting, Bill and Greer planned their wedding in just a little over a month’s time with five kids to take care of in the meantime. Impressive is an understatement! I’ll let the images tell their rest of their wedding story. It was simply beautiful…

Sloan & Hayden are Engaged!

Valentine’s week I held a Facebook contest where brides-to-be posted the most lovable quality about their fiancés and shared the post on their own Facebook page. The bride-to-be with the most “Likes” to their post won an Engagment Session with me. Sloan and Hayden were the winners with 264 “Likes” to her post that Hayden “will do anything to make me smile”.

Sloan and Hayden currently live in Texas, and are planning their Birmingham wedding long distance. With family in Birmingham, they were able to come in town last week to work on the details, so we took Sunday afternoon to do their Engagement Session. I had the best time getting to know them. Sloan was definitely all smiles, but I have to say that Hayden didn’t really have to do much to get those smiles. Just being together was enough! What a sweet couple!

Leslie & Mark’s Sonnet House Wedding

Valentine’s weekend I had the great pleasure of photographing Leslie and Mark’s wedding at The Sonnet House. Leslie has been a dear friend of our family for a very long time, and I photographed her daughter Lindsey’s wedding alongside Emily Kicklighter just a few years ago. I first met Mark through volunteer work with aTeam Ministries, a ministry that helps families dealing with pediatric cancer. In addition, we are all in church together at Shades Mountain Baptist Church. So many wonderful connections with this awesome couple!

Leslie is such a sweet person who has the wonderful gift of making people laugh, and it was no different on her wedding day! The thing I noticed all day long was how she and Mark looked at each other so adoringly and shared lots of laughter. The best kind of laughter too…the throw back your head, open mouth kind of laughter. Love it!

After several weeks of snow and ice in Birmingham, we were thrilled to see sunshine and warmer temperatures on their wedding day! During the ceremony, the Minister of Music from Shades and his wife sang “Be Thou My Vision”. It was such an incredibly worshipful moment and a meaningful one because I know the desires of Leslie and Mark’s hearts are for the Lord to be their vision in their individual lives, and as husband and wife.

Leslie and Mark, I wish you all the best for a beautiful life together filled with lots of joy and laughter! Thank you for the honor of asking me to be a part of your happy day!

Jana & Hunter’s Wedding at a Private Farm

Jana contacted me in November to photograph her December wedding at her sister’s Farm in Ashville, Alabama. She and Hunter were tired of waiting and ready to tie the knot! In a very short time, Jana, her family and friends pulled together the most amazing wedding day, paying attention to every detail. The only thing that couldn’t be planned for was the weather. It rained all day without stopping, so every photo had to be taken under cover or inside. But, the weather didn’t put a damper on the joy of the occasion! Hunter just rolled with it and Jana was a beautiful, calm, composed and sweet bride. I never heard either of them complain. In fact, at one point Jana cheerily said, “If rain on your wedding day brings good luck, then we are going to have tons of it!”. Her fabulous attitude reminded me a song from my childhood by B.J. Thomas …

“So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he’ got things done
Sleepin’ on the job
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

But there’s one thing I know
The blues he sends to meet me won’t defeat me
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Crying’s not for me
Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me”

Congratulations Jana and Hunter. You’re off to such a great start finding the good in everything!

Jaime + Chris [Birmingham, Alabama Wedding]

Jaime and Chris have been acquaintences of mine for several years through mutual friends. I met each of them separately even before they were dating. Individually they both have such fun personalities, and after being around them a few times when they were dating and then on their wedding day, it was obvious that they are perfect for each other! They look at each other so adoringly and laugh a lot! Two qualities every marriage should have.

There were two very moving moments for me on Jaime and Chris’s wedding day. The first was right after their “first look”, when Chris immediately bowed his head and prayed for their marriage. What an amazing way to begin their lives together as husband and wife! And later, when they said vows to their children in front of all their friends and family. The children’s expressions were precious!

Both of their families were touched very closely by cancer in the last couple of years, so this wedding was a beautiful blessing to all who were there to celebrate their joyful union. I’m so glad they wanted me to be a part of it. All day long I was reminded of the amazing hope we have in Jesus.

Congratulations Jaime and Chris! Best wishes for a long, happy and healthy life together.HDP-688_WEB.jpg

Ashley & Peter Engaged!

Ashley has babysit my kids some, and they love her because she’s fun and especially because one time she whipped up some homemade icing when she was here. Yeah, treats are the fast way to become my kids’ favorite babysitter. When Ashley called me to tell me she is getting married and wanted me to photograph her engagement session I was beyond thrilled. Congratulations Ashley and Peter and best wishes!

Mary Kathryn & Andrew, Engaged!

I met Mary Kathryn and Andrew last year at the highest point overlooking Lake Martin. I was having my 40th birthday weekend at the lake and my friend Jennifer and I went to the overlook to check it out since we had never been before. Of course my camera came along. As we were standing there admiring the view of the lake, a couple walked up from the hiking trail. We started up a conversation and they told us they were students at Auburn. It was one of those times when you just like someone the moment you meet them. I could tell they were dating, so I asked them if they wanted me to take a quick photo of them and email to them. It was late afternoon light that I just couldn’t let go to waste. 🙂 I took the photo, we chatted a little more and then went on our way. When I got back home I emailed them the photo. That was it. Then, almost exactly one year later I received a phone call from Mary Kathryn letting me know they were engaged and she wanted me to shoot their wedding! Yeah, situations like this are just what I refer to as “a God thing”. I just love how He orchestrates circumstances and people to be in each other’s paths….and this time it was a literal path!

Here are some of my favorite images from their engagement session at Aldridge Gardens. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this June in Auburn!
