Get Outside to Get Fit [Published Birmingham Magazine, May 2016]

Last month I got to combine my two loves, Photography and Fitness, to shoot a story for the current issue of Birmingham Magazine. It was a perfect spring afternoon at Railroad Park with Curtis Stokes, Owner and Trainer at EVO Befit and Linay Smith, a fellow fitness instructor at CORE Birmingham, who modeled for our shoot. Be sure to pick up the magazine for a step by step workout you can do anywhere to get in shape for summer!

Emily & Clayton’s Birmingham Wedding

Emily & Clayton’s was the first wedding I’ve photographed at Covenant Presbyterian Church, which is the church where I got married 18 years ago and where my kids attended preschool. It’s such a special place to our family and being there felt like coming home. From the lovely hand calligraphy on the invitations, to Emily’s gorgeous ring and the belted tulle layer of her dress…everything was simply gorgeous. After the ceremony I had the privilege of capturing this beautiful couple at Railroad Park with the city skyline rising behind them just before sunset, and ending the night at B&A Warehouse. There was an amazing team of vendors, including wedding gown by Olia Zavozina and Bridesmaids dresses by Monique Lhuillier from Carriage House Weddings, floral design by Lillie’s, and cakes by Edgar’s Bakery…just to name a few. Here are the images to tell the rest of their wedding day story.
