It’s no secret: I love color.

The first chance I got to decorate my bedroom the way I wanted growing up, I chose the brightest shade of aqua I could find. My T-shirt collection looks like it belongs in Rainbow Brite’s closet. And my car? It’s LIME GREEN.

But I also love colorful people, and I feel so fortunate to be making a living capturing their colorful lives.

I’ve gotten to shoot weddings in all sorts of places, from the unconventional (a dinosaur museum, a cave, a buffalo ranch, a concert venue, and a whiskey distillery, to name a few) to the traditional (country clubs, plantation homes, ballrooms, and churches). And while I love, love, love a good Southern wedding here in Alabama and everywhere else below the Mason-Dixon, I love that I’ve also gotten to shoot weddings all over the US, from Los Angeles to Portland to Vermont to Kansas. Needless to say, my clients bring all sorts of backgrounds and traditions to the table, and I adore being able to get to know and to capture everything that makes you YOU.

The best part of my job? I get to be there right alongside you on one of the happiest days of your life!  I can’t tell you how incredible it is that I get to witness and document your love, your relationships, your traditions, your style. And because every couple is so different, I try to be as unobtrusive as possible when I shoot. You won’t see me recreating fake moments “just to get a photo of it.” I pride myself on capturing those real, candid slices of life. Authentic, colorful, emotional, fun, and timeless images of priceless moments.

Since we’ll be spending one of the most important days of your lives together, there are a few things you should know about me. And since looking for a photographer can be a lot like seeking out a significant other, I put together an eHarmony profile of sorts, so you can know right away whether we might be a good fit for each other. :)

Physical Description: super short (you’ll probably comment on that immediately upon meeting me and I’m completely fine with it :) ), redheaded, freckled girl who is most likely wearing a colorful T-shirt, cardigan, jeans, and sandals from Target

Likes: mint chocolate, stripes, anything French, Target, watching way too many past TV seasons on Netflix with my husband Jamie (currently obsessed with Friday Night Lights and hoping I grow up to be exactly like Tami Taylor), sleeping with two fans on, The Wonder Years, Chick-fil-a nuggets with Polynesian sauce, my hound dog Gretchen, Southern culture and food, vintage shops, drinking lots and lots of 2% milk (with ice, thankyouverymuch), Dolly Parton, pretending to be an interior designer, and reading in bed at night

Dislikes: anything involving athletic coordination (embarrassing!), creepy crawlies, maneuvering around parking lots, and scary movies (seriously, y’all, I had nightmares for WEEKS after seeing a preview for The Exorcist)

Seeking: Clients who are madly in love, care more about their marriage than the minute details of their wedding day, and love to have fun! (Also must be okay with corny jokes, excessive use of emoticons in emails, me crying behind the camera while shooting your wedding, and hugging instead of hand shaking.)

Does it seem like we’d be a good match? YAY! Then pretty please get in touch with me via my handy contact form in the menu up top or by emailing me directly at I can’t wait to get to know YOU!

Gail - I would hire you for that Wonder Years picture alone. :)

Jen - My fiancee thinks I’m the only person in the universe who leaves half an inch of milk (or juice, or tea…) languishing in the bottom of my glass for days. Glad to know I’m not alone!
Love your work!
