 Matt and Courtney.  Where to begin.  Courtney and I met a few years ago.  Our relationship has only grown since then.  We quickly figured out that our personalities are very much alike.  Matt and Courtney met and Courtney came to me about this guy she was seeing.  I told her just to pray about it and seek the Lord.  She did just that.  Matt is everything she’s prayed for and I’m so thankful for that, for both of them.  They wanted their wedding day to represent their love for Jesus and it did just that.  They were surrounded by such an incredible wedding party and the support of their families is so evident.  I’m so thankful I got to be a part of such a beautiful day that not only shined the light of Jesus, but that also shined their love for each other.  Thank you, Matt and Courtney, for allowing Mitchell and me to be a part of this new journey.  I’m so PROUD of you both and I can not wait to see how your story is told!

We had so much fun with Mason and Hilary on their wedding day!  What’s crazy is when I first met Hilary, she told me her wedding was going to be in Anniston, AL on family land.  So of course I just thought that’s where she lived.  Well, it turns out she literally lives right around […]

Mitchell and I had a great time on Garrett and Montana’s Wedding Day!  They got married at the beautiful Cypress Inn Pavilion in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  They had a small, private wedding ceremony with their immediate families.  After their beautiful ceremony, they had all their friends join them for the reception.  I got to see some of my past brides and grooms.  That’s always so much fun!  Garrett and Montana danced the night away while Farmer’s Daughter rocked it out.  Thank you for letting us share in your special day, you two!  Congratulations!

I had a lot of fun at Daniel and Katy’s Engagement session!  We actually had to do two sessions because ten minutes after we got there for the first one, the bottom FELL OUT!  We ran to our vehicles, heads covered, and figured out a plan B date!  I’m thankful they were understanding as the […]

Josh and Nicole’s wedding day was a blast!  I met this fun couple last year and they have one of those relationships that is not only fun, but real.  We did their engagement session at Lake Nichol in Tuscaloosa last Fall.  The brought in their sweet fur babies for the session and decided to do the same for their wedding day!  People ask me all the time if it’s ok if they bring their pets.  Of course!!!  I love it.  They are part of your life too. 🙂 We started Josh and Nicole’s wedding day at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tuscaloosa and then moved to the church where Josh and Nicole had a sweet first look and a beautiful ceremony!  Following the ceremony we moved to the Tuscaloosa River Market (one of my favorites) for their reception.  They were surrounded by friends and family as they celebrated becoming husband and wife.  Between personal toasts, great food, fun dancing, a great band, and a live paint artist, the night was one to remember!  Congratulations Josh and Nicole!  Thank you for letting us be a part of such an exciting time in your lives!
