Tonya & Herman

This was my first E Session. Tonya and Herman arrived a little uptight at first but as we went on began to loosen up. This really didn't bother me because I was just as uptight as they were. I wanted to catch them in a more natural setting rather than posing. This not only helped them, but allowed me to catch the intimate moments that i wanted to see between the two. I basically told them to conversate and allow themselves to be just that themselves. A kiss here and there wouldn't hurt either lol... I believe I caught them quite a bit forgetting that I was even there. I think we got some shots that were pretty good and It brought even more joy to me when they were pleased with the end result. Thanks Herman and Tonya Gray.

This is one of my first family shoots. When I first started out I basically hit all my friends up to let them know my intentions with this photography vision I have. Well Joe told me that his wife and himself were really wanting to take some family pictures but didn't want same old same. He asked that I give him some time and he would most difinitely get back to me. That he did he mention to me that he had found the location that he wanted to do this session at. His neighbor had just had this waterfall install at his house and told Joe he had no problem with us using it. Its always good when your backdrop enhances what your trying to do and a good looking family doesn't hurt. Thanks Joe, Val, and Tre for allowing me to work with you guys but to satisfy Joe Gaines was reward enough.

Jenise & Keith

This wedding was so beautiful. It was held in Huntsville Alabama at a place down on the Tennessee River called Dito Landing. We really were looking forward to shooting this one because of It being so beautiful. I really appreciate Susan that assited me in this wedding. The chance of rain that day tended to want to put a damper on things but the good lord allowed the sun to shine long enough to allow this beautiful couple to proceed with there vows of love to one another. This was a spare of the moment request for me. I guess you could say I was at the right place at the right time. I always appreciate those who put there trust in me when I may not be as experience as some of my photographer family. I appreiate Keith and Jenise for allowing me to grow at there expense. Love you guys....

Borden Wedding

My First, This is real special to me because it was my first wedding. They really made it easy for me with the setting and all. I shot this with a good friend that really gave me the encouragement to give it a shot. This wedding was at a beautiful place in Athens Alabama called Madeleines Place. We started shooting at 1:30 and didn't finish up till 7 so it was a long day. Thanks Bordens for such a wonderful time and hospitality.
