Birmingham Wedding / Trinity United Methodist and Bridge Street Gallery and Loft / Meredith and Scott

I photographed this wedding while rebuilding my website so I have yet to blog about it! It’s certainly not due to lack of photographs or excitement over the images. It was a beautiful wedding ceremony, one of the most memorable I’ve seen at Trinity United Methodist Church on Oxmoor Rd. in Homewood. It was the […]

Birmingham Engagement Dress Session / Elyton Hotel / Vivian

It’s such a wonderful experience to photograph someone who is just as excited about the session as you are! I’ve photographed Vivian twice now, and it just keeps getting better. These images are from our first session together. She wanted photographs of her engagement dress. We met on the day of her traditional Vietnamese Engagement […]

Photography is the ultimate record keeper. Photographs are one way to make us feel beautiful and important. Although we may forget little details about our […]

Kress Building Wedding / Birmingham, AL / Tina and Stuart

I’ve known Tina for about five years; we met in my previous life as a teacher. I liked her immediately, but after working with her, I liked her even more. We have a few things in common-she’s vegan (I’m the less dedicated version-vegetarian); we were both art majors in college; and she stepped in just […]

Intimate Birmingham Botanical Gardens Fall Wedding / Alabama

Isn’t it everyone’s dream to say that they love what they do for a living? I’ve been really fortunate in both of my careers, my previous one in teaching and now in photography. I rarely don’t want to “go to work,” because this is what life’s all about, isn’t it? Making yourself and others happy? […]

They had so many wonderfully interesting ideas from their preparation at the beautiful, historic Redmont Hotel; to their bagpipe led procession, which took everyone on a walk from the hotel to the First Presbyterian Church; and finally to their […]

They all walk into a bar… But seriously, if you live in Birmingham, Alabama, especially, there are hundreds of photographers to choose from. Many of them […]
