“Jessica and Cory have chosen to do a cord of three strands during their ceremony,” the officiant announced. I had seen the sign and cords earlier in the day, but I hadn’t given much thought to their significance until the ceremony. Until that moment, at least. I watched as Cory and Jessica giggled, cried happy […]

“Place God above everything else.” I read these words across Facebook late last Wednesday night. It was three days prior to the day Crissy and Jeremy would become husband and wife. They had been to their premarital counseling, and my heart leapt with joy to see that tidbit listed amongst important advice from their minister. Better […]

Why should I do a first look? So. Many. Reasons! Let me preface this by saying that I don’t require my brides to do a first look. It’s no secret I love one, but if the desire of my bride’s heart is that traditional first look when coming down the aisle, then that’s totally up […]

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is capturing the details. I know many brides spend countless hours scouring Pinterest and creating a vision of what can make their day unique. I remember doing the same thing. That’s why my eye is always peeled for those special details, the touches that separate “you” from every other couple. Be it extra […]

The rain was falling outside. She was tucked behind the sliding barn doors off the white, marble lobby. He stood across the room, the groom with a giddy smile waiting to see his bride for the first time. She walked toward him and he turned toward her and they both tried not to cry. It was […]

Kasey sat down to read Nick’s letter. The room was empty, except for us. Her bridesmaids were waiting patiently outside the room at The Tutwiler to see her as a bride for the first time. She was stunning. Her lace gown was trailing down the white sofa and onto the floor alongside her cathedral veil. Nick was downstairs in […]

From the first time I met Ansley and Josh back in the fall, I knew they were perfect for each other. He had delayed their trip to the Iron Bowl in Auburn to shoot engagement pictures, so I knew he was willing to sacrifice for her 😉 She looked at him with love in her eyes […]

Back at the end of this summer, I received an email from Jill Bonilla seeing if I was free to second shoot a wedding with her one Friday in October. I was really happy it worked out, and within five minutes of navigating our way to the venue together, I knew we were going to get along great. […]

Lauren and Joey’s wedding was one I had been looking forward to for months. I was so excited to shoot their wedding at the Alabama 4-H Center where my brother and sister in law got married almost three years before. Lauren was what I like to call an “ideal bride” for me. She’s someone who really valued preserving […]

I was shocked when Lauren contacted me three weeks before her wedding to see if I happened to be available. All kinds of thoughts ran through my head. Short term engagement? Fly by the seat of your pants kind of girl? Is this bride going to be worth working with? The answer to these questions, […]
