I also love encouraging clients to opt […]

Hayley and Will were naturals in front of the camera, which shouldn’t be too much of a shocker since Hayley is Miss. Alabama 2018. We decided to start their photos at Woodlawn Cycle Cafe and then, to show off the gorgeous fall leaves in Birmingham, we headed to the Jemison Trail. They picked up their […]

He says she is intelligent, adventurous, and compassionate and she says he is empathetic, inventive, and hilarious.

Ann Marshall and […]

He thinks she is steadfast, adventurous, and lively.  She thinks he is loyal, knowledgeable, and funny.  Danielle and Zach’s wedding at The Cordelle in Nashville, TN was one I won’t forget. Danielle and I became good (and fast) friends in my former career/life as a college admission counselor, and she was actually one of the first people […]

  He says she is bubbly, sweet, and present and she says he is loyal, intelligent, and rare.  Kelsey and Sidney actually met in elementary school but were never close until one year when Kelsey returned home to Auburn for Christmas break and the rest, my friends, is history. These two are adventures but constant […]
