For all of the weddings I have ever shot, I would be hard-pressed to find a groom who was so overwhelmed by his bride on their wedding day. There is no question that Lauren had her phaser set to ‘stun’. Upon their first look, Casey just stood there for a second or two … seemingly unable to move or speak. The love between the two of them in the sanctuary was so thick you could have cut it with a knife. The ceremony was so reverent, so sincere, so meaningful. And the reception was a full blown party!! Such a fun time!
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day, Lauren & Casey!! All the best as you begin your lives together!

On Saturday, June 2, 2012, I made the 20 mile trek south to The Southern House & Gardens for the wedding of Alana Moore & Britt Turner V. What a wonderful love story! Having been married for 28 years, it’s pretty easy to spot those couple that you know are already best friends and will weather any storm that will come their way. After watching Alana & Britt interact over these last few months, there is not a doubt in my mind that they will grow old together and fall more in love with each other every day. Congratulations, guys!

Wow!! Once again, it has been a while since I posted to the blog! Seems there are only so many hours in the day, and with it having been a very busy year, I tend to post more to my Facebook page than I do here. But you are also welcome to follow me there, too! Here is the link:
On May 12th of this year, I made the 1 hour trek up to Toadvine, Alabama to the banks of the Black Warrior River to shoot the wedding of Allison Maharrey & Kevin Sanders. Allison’s mom and dad have had a place on the river for longer than they would care to admit, and Allison practically grew up there, so it was the perfect place to have her wedding. Although skies threatened all day, and even with a brief shower about 30 minutes prior to ceremony time, the wedding still took place on the river’s edge. But about 30 minutes following the ceremony, the skies opened up and poured for about 2 hours. Thank goodness for 90-foot tents!
But what a glorious day, and such a party at the reception! And no reception under Alabama skies is complete without, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Roll Tide, Roll!’!! Congrats Allison and Kevin!

What an absolutely perfect day for a wedding this past Saturday, April 7th, as Sarah and Ben tied the knot! The wedding and reception was held at Capitol Park in Tuscaloosa. I loved Sarah’s choice of colors! A perfect springtime wedding!
Congrats, you two!

I love traveling to different places to shoot weddings, even if it’s only an hour from home. For me, it’s practically a working vacation! (grin)
Such was the case on Sunday, March 25th, as I drove to Hoover, Alabama to Park Crest Gardens. It was my first trip to the venue, and I must tell you that it is one of the most spectacular outdoor venues I’ve ever been privileged to shoot! Perched on top of a hill, the view towards the western sky is nothing short of amazing! If I had been driven there not knowing where I was, I could have easily thought I was in the Smoky Mountains of east Tennessee! Gorgeous!!
I must say that Brandi made an excellent choice of venue for her wedding. The weather was utterly perfect, and so was everything else when she and Chris said, ‘I do!’.
Congratulations, Brandi & Chris!

I am such a lucky guy. I get paid to do what I love to do. But there are just those days where that feeling is magnified, and March 10, 2012 was one of those days. You see, I have known Chelsea and her family since she and my youngest daughter attended elementary school together just a few short years ago. And if that sounds like an echo, you’d be correct … I have been fortunate enough to photograph several weddings where the bride attended school with one of my daughters. But more than that, my family and Chelsea’s family lived less than 100 yards from each other for the better part of a decade. So when they called me to capture Chelsea’s wedding, I was thrilled!
As you can see, it was a perfect day for a wedding. What a great-looking couple! As Chelsea is a teacher and Robert is an up-and-coming star with a national auto parts chain, the future is very bright for them! Nancy and I wish them all the best!
Congratulations, Chelsea and Robert!

Sure, you knew I did weddings … but did you know that I’m not too bad when it comes to kids?? How about these little cuties?? Aren’t they beautiful?

You know, sometimes as a photographer, you just drool when you first lay eyes on a beautiful venue. I’ve lived in Tuscaloosa since 1981, but never have really paid much attention to Trinity United Methodist Church on Paul W. Bryant Drive on the campus of The University of Alabama. But I’m usually more focused on not getting run off the road by a wayward college student. <grin>
But on March 3, 2012, this beautiful old church was the place where Carman & Rusty said ‘I do!’ forever. Congrats, you two! What a beautiful day!
