I think every young lady comes up dreaming of their wedding day. The dream to have her dad give her away. Her mom on the front pew in tears because that's her baby. In the mist of all the father wants a decent young man that he feels is worthy to have his daughter. I don't think Korbi's father had to worry about that. I became acquainted with this couple through Michael's sister Donnissia. When we met everything seem to go well and although I did have another obligation (Wedding) that day. They were willing to except anything I could give them. I appreciated that because I wanted to be there for them, but I knew my time would be limited. We were able to work out the specifics and when I say God took control of this day, he really took control. I went into this day knowing I had two weddings to cover and unsure how to cover both with the time given, but then God gave me Keith Pullum (Keith Pullum Photography), Susan Eason (SLE Photography and Design) and Charles Rudder to help get me through the day. This crew of photographer are awesome and I appreciate them for sacrificing a free day to help me. As I was making ready the slideshow and I look back on this day I had to give God all the glory. This song is what seemed to me to fit this occasion. We put so much trust in things that don't matter and then it or they seemed to come up short we're right back were we started. God never fails us and despite the unfaithfulness we so often display. He's right there leading us to another victory, NOBODY GREATER!!!!!! Thanks Michael and Korbi for your faith that allowed you to trust.

With each couple the journey to get to the appointed day seems like forever, but before you know it's here and gone. I think Mary and Curtis both will recall me saying enjoy the ride and don't rush it. I say that because when I got married that was one thing that I cherished, was the process. From picking out the venues, caterers, florist, and so on. This was the first thing you work together to accomplish. Once you reach that day and you go down that check list you of course have something that's driving you nuts, but when it's all said and done it worked out. I met with Curtis quite a few times and he was always taking it in stride. Cool brother that to me seemed about his business. Mary when I first met her was very stern and had the poker face on through out our meeting. This was a lady out to get what she wanted and at that bargaining table I felt like I was on the apprentice and I knew any second those words would come out of her mouth "Your Fired" lol. Once that was behind us she was all smiles and I saw some of the side that had Curtis ready to make her his wife. I'm happy for this couple and the support of the family and friends was shown in the huge smiles as the ceremony moved along. I must say out of the weddings I've done the Pastor did something that made him stand out. He did not only charge them responsible for one another, but he set the same precedence for family and friends. This was a beautiful ceremony and the words that were spoken were heartfelt. With that said here is a little slide show presentation I put together that will enlighten you on the beauty and pleasantness that flowed through that day. Congrats to the newlyweds, Curtis and Mary I pray many, many, many anniversaries are in store for your future. After viewing the slide show please leave some kind words to the couple. God Bless, and enjoy!!!!

This was one of the more relaxed shoots I've had in a while. I must say that usually the women or always ready to take on the session, but most guys or just ready to get it over with lol. James was one of those you rarely come across. He was patient and willing to go the distance for his future wife. Although all of my clients have possessed that characteristic. It was a different feel coming from him. He was truly a mellow type individual. Starting out in downtown Huntsville we were able to take advantage of the beautiful landmarks and what added icing on the cake was running up on Cotton Row Restaurant. Dapphenye and James thought it would be really cool to do some shots in there. James was willing to order or do whatever it took to get the permission, but it came with no hesitation nor obligation. The manager was willing to allow the session to take place here. She also showed us around and as we took this tour we were taken to a loft upstairs that was really cool. Need less to say we basically shot the remainder of our session here. As the session ended I guess being a good host paid off because Dapphenye and James decided to have dinner in the establishment. I thank you two for your patients and allowing me to part of this journey. I've put together a slideshow of the session and hope you enjoy. Hope you enjoy the few I made apart of this presentation. God Bless!!!
