Mr & Mrs McDonald | Married

Malauri and Chance are married! This sweet couple tied the knot at a beautiful venue outside of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. With a hurricane brewing and taking aim at Florida, the love bugs were in abundance on their special day and the massive heat and humidity that we had been having gave us a break and it was a beautiful day! No humidity is just what the bride asked for, and God blessed her with a comfortable day!

Seeing Malauri walking down the isle with her daddy brought back many memories for me. I’ve watched her grow up since she was born and seeing the beautiful young lady that she is walking to her groom was such a sweet moment!

Congrats to the happy couple! Wishing you a lifetime of wedding bliss!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day!


Malauri | Bride

Malauri is married! The sweet couple said their vows yesterday, and it was a beautiful ceremony. A month before they said “I Do” I photographed Malauri for her bridal portraits. And, today I finally get to show them off!

It was HOT, but she was a trooper! We shot at two different locations, which gave her a good amount of different looks to choose from. Her makeup, hair, dress, everything was perfect, and even held up as we dodged rain showers.

Here are a few of my favorites from her bridals.

The Riekebergs | Family

This sweet family asked me to do a lifestyle session with them at their home before I left for vacation, and I’m just now stopping long enough to blog about them. Lacretia has been keeping me busy photographing all her real estate listings, and FYI, those houses aren’t lasting long on the market!

She wanted some new marketing photos for her business, and wanted some new family shots as well. So we had some fun with the entire family, even their sweet dog, Purdy!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their session!


And if you need help with real estate, give Lacretia a call!


Mr & Mrs Morland | Wedding

Madelyn and Bobby Ray’s wedding might go down in history as the hottest wedding in April, ever. Hottest as in temperature and in chemistry. This was the first time I had met this couple in person, and their love for each other and for their family was a beautiful sight to behold!

I think everyone was happy the nasty weather that was headed that way held off till the next day. Thankfully the crazy wind kept us a bit cooled off throughout the afternoon and evening.

Despite the heat and wind, everything was gorgeous! The location, flowers, music, and the sweetest words spoken at their wedding made their day perfect! Both the bride and the groom’s dads about had me in tears several times!

Congratulations to Madelyn and Bobby Ray! I wish you and your family a lifetime of love and happiness!

Randy, Grace & Colton | Family

Back in the fall, I photographed Randy and Grace for her maternity photo session. We laughed and had a great time, and I couldn’t wait to meet little Colton!

This little guy was born two months ago, and he is so handsome and sweet. We moved from place to place and he was happy as can be! I can’t wait to see him crack a smile soon, and before we know it he will be sitting up by himself! But time, please don’t pass too soon!

Thanks again, y’all, for allowing me to capture some sweet memories for y’all in this new chapter of your life! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!


The Thompsons | Family

Ted, Lauren, Tripp, and Kaiden had their family pictures made late Fall last year, but I’m just now able to share them with y’all. You can read the previous post for more information about that.

We met at Oak Mountain State Park and had a ball taking pictures. The Thompsons were able to pick out one to use on their Christmas card, and I bet you’ll be able to figure out which one it was from my favorites! I can’t wait to see how much these boys have grown next Fall!

I’m so excited to finally be able to release these pictures on the blog. Enjoy my favorites from their session!



Mr & Mrs Upchurch | Wedding

Fall finally arrived in Alabama, and it made for the perfect day for Jordyne and Drew’s outdoor wedding. This was my first time to meet any of the Buckner or Upchurch family, and they were game for just about anything that day. Their wedding party was large, but extremely fun. I had a blast working with them to create fun and memorable photographs that they’ll have for a lifetime.

Congratulations Jordyne and Drew! I wish y’all all the best!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day.



Mr & Mrs Taylor | Wedding

Amberly and Daryel Taylor tied the knot last Saturday at a gorgeous location in Livingston, Alabama called Mimosa Ridge. I was asked to photograph their wedding last March, and even though I’ve been with them for their engagement pictures and her bridals — all those months flew right on by.

The couple along with their family and friends stayed in the cabins and made it a weekend event. No detail was left untouched for this big day. You know those who make boards on pinterest and pin away? Well, they not only pinned, but they also included a lot of those ideas into their wedding. It’s the wedding most people dream about, but they made it their reality.

Everything was perfect from the flowers to the hair, and I was honored to capture all the events of the day for memories that will last a lifetime.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their wedding day.
