Ann & Kyle

In full disclosure, it is a little intimidating to shoot your wife’s boss’s wedding, but that nervousness dissipated the minute we walked into Ann’s room to start the day. Ann was literally radiant, and Kyle could not have been a more perfect groom, completely captivated by his bride. We are happiest as photographers when emotions are tangible. The smiles, laughter, tears were all on display and it was beautiful to document.

We cannot thank them enough for their complete confidence in us, for inviting us into such a sacred day, and for reminding us what it is to be truly grateful to be loved.

Trudie (Eberlin) Rothe - Ann you look so beautiful. I am so happy for you and your groom. Please know that I think of you often and have always admired you for the way you have lived your life. Be happy about your future and know that I love you girl. God bless you both.

Elizabeth & Greg

Elizabeth and Greg had an epic wedding at Dorgan’s Inn in Fairhope. A beautiful day, beautiful venue, fantastic flowers and impeccable details, and an amazingly fun wedding party made for amazing pictures. This was the latest of several weddings I’ve photographed in the Auburn tri-delt family, it was wonderful to see Chelsea and the Reitz’s

Trotline rocked the music and Dana Goodman coordinated the wedding, both were great!

Kelli & Robert

Last Saturday’s wedding was like homecoming to us. .. full of friends and so many of our favorite people, lots of our former brides and grooms and moments where we could just settle in and feel at ease. Kelli and Robert’s wedding was on one of the first real spring days here in Birmingham at Dawson Baptist and the Club. It was perfectly planned and coordinated by Anita Kanellis and Kelli had lots of wonderful blue and yellow pops of color throughout the day. Kelli’s dress was designed and made by Heidi Elnora here in Birmingham and we had beautiful skies and and fantastic sunset. Angela and John Deaver – the dynamic duo of Mainstreet Productions were with us to help capture everything, Andy Tolar did the genius lighting, Heidi Elnora designed Kelli’s dress, the beautiful yellow cake was from Olexa’s, and Coats Cars provided Elizabeth for the perfect getaway vehicle.

Kelli and Robert were wonderful and gave us lots of little moments to take epic pictures. We loved every second of being part of their day. . . .

Victoria & Chris

Victoria and Chris are fun-loving, genuine people, and it was a delight to be a part of their wedding. We had a drizzly day at Matthews Manor, but Victoria & Chris still took a ride in the horse and carriage, and we did get outside for a few pictures – and of course the fun rainy ones! Chris is a mentor in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, and he not only had his little brother there, he was a groomsman – I thought that was awesome! Victoria’s dance with her step-dad was fantastic as well – they went through the range of dances from slow-dancing to brick-house to sexy-and-I-know-it – definitely a reception highlight! It is always great to be at Matthews Manor, and Carlos from Total Entertainment did the lighting and music for the reception.

Lauren & Colin

Last weekend’s wedding ended our winter break and we showed up at Trinity Methodist Church for Lauren and Colin’s beautiful turquoise and purple wedding coordinated by Christopher Confero Designs from Atlanta. Mandy Majerik of Hothouse Design Studio created the beautiful florals, and the reception was at B&A Warehouse downtown. Lauren’s stunning gown was from Diane’s in Jasper.

Like a lot of our weddings now, we had friends in the bridal party and former brides and grooms as guests and we loved seeing the community that we have built in Birmingham and join in their celebration again. Welcome to Lauren and Colin’s spectacular wedding day . . .
