Jennifer & Chuck

When we first moved to Birmingham, Laura and Roan were one of the very first couples to trust us with their wedding. They have become wonderful friends, and when Laura’s brother, Chuck, got engaged, we were so excited to be asked to photograph he and Jennifer’s wedding as well. Jennifer planned a stylishly simple pink and navy wedding at a beautiful old plantation home, the Hazelhurst House, just south of Atlanta in McDonough, Georgia. We were almost thwarted in her plan for an outdoor wedding by a summer thunderstorm, but the rain cleared up just 15 minutes after the wedding was originally supposed to start, giving us a few extra minutes for photos in the beautiful light and cooling everything off for the guests. Chuck has to be one of the happiest grooms we have ever photographed. He and Jennifer truly transform each other when they are together and it was a wondeful thing to capture in photographs.

Lauren & Jimmy

Lauren and Jimmy managed to pick the most beautiful day of the summer for their wedding – and 80 degree Birmingham days in August don’t come around very often. We had a fantastic day hanging out with Lauren, Jimmy, and their fantastic families and friends. The wedding was scheduled during the golden light in the beautiful fields outside Matthew’s Manor, and during the reception Lauren’s very talented family members entertained us with classic bluegrass and then Jimmy took the stage with his brothers and sisters to sing an original song Jimmy had written right for his bride right before they started dating and some Needtobreathe (which was fun for us since their drummer, Joe Stillwell, was a groomsman in our wedding).

The ceremony was at Matthews Manor and they did all the amazing flowers. Lauren’s dress was from Ivory and White – the bridal boutique in Crestline Village that orignally brought her to Birmingham, and Danny Brewer from Feel the Beat Entertainment was the DJ.

Emily & Matt






Matt and Emily planned their elegant Samford wedding from Texas with a lot of help from her mom and M. Elizabeth’s team from Birmingham. We had a wonderful time wandering around Samford University to find some of Emily’s favorite places at Samford. They had a beautiful traditional ceremony that emphasized the influence of Emily’s musical training, and the reception at Vestavia Country Club was a whimsically elegant banquet with pink gingham tablecloths, pink lemonade, mason jars, and beautiful florals by KG Designs. Emily was beaming all day and looked absolutely stunning in her delicately tiered lace dress. Matt’s groomsmen released their inner superhero with t-shirts below their tuxes, and Craig Duncan Orchestra provided the music for the dance party. Mark Hendren of Mark Five productions captured the moments of the day in motion on video.

Paige & Keith

In short, I love Paige and Keith. We have gotten to be friends over our shoots and correspondence in wedding planning – it was an honor and tons of fun to photograph their wedding!

A couple of things I loved – Keith gave the groomsmen their suits as a gift, which I think is a fantastic idea. And I always love when the bridesmaids are able to wear dresses that they love – they were unique, and one even sewed her own dress! One of Keith’s good friends from seminary performed the ceremony, which is always special as the message is specifically for them.

The wedding was at Dawson Memorial Baptist and ceremony at the Matt Jones gallery. For July, we had an amazingly cool day and were able to take all our outside pictures without even breaking a sweat. We also dodged the rain but still had an amazing rainbow (thanks Ashley Hampton for letting me borrow your filter to take a good picture of it!!) Carol with Lillie’s did the flowers, Tracy with Chic Made Simple coordinated the wedding, and Ashley & Matt from Hampton Road were the videographers.
