ABOUT ME

'm extremely fortunate to turn my true passion into what I do for a living.

I've been full time in the photography business since 2008 and it's been the best thing I've ever done. From newborns to new brides, I love the fact that my photos touch people in such a positive way. It's very fulfilling and makes my spirit shine. Just ask my clients and they'll tell you how much I care and how passionate I'm about my work. Let me tell your story, whatever it may be.

I

I BELIEVE IN DREAMs.

my style

your story. my passion.

There are many ways to do this of course, but I prefer a blending of styles. I would define mine as lifestyle and candid. At some point in a wedding you'll need to shoot in several different styles, and it's my belief that a professional photographer can do all of that...and do it flawlessly. 

draw inspiration from many things - from the smallest details, to my client's grand vision. I want my photos to express emotion, movement and tell a story.

amazing

Brad did an amazing job with both our engagement and wedding pictures!! I could not have asked for better pictures to have to remember such a special day! 

- KINSEY C.

magnificent

Brad was awesome!! Everyone loved him, he stayed all day and night long and we could hardly get him to take a break for a few minutes to even eat. He did a magnificent job and I recommend him to everyone!

- allison H.

Phenomenal

Brad has a lot of experience and talent. He's very laid back and can give you as much or as little direction as you need. He's very easy to get to know and you feel like you've known him forever after meeting with him. The pictures he takes are phenomenal!! 

- Rachel H.

helpful & patient

Brad is a great photographer! I planned my wedding from three states away, and he was helpful and patient every step of the way. My husband and I felt very comfortable with him, and the photos all turned out beautiful, we couldn't wait to get them framed! I definitely recommend!

- Leah L.

cool, calm & collected

Brad is such a pleasure to work with! On a hectic day with people pulling us in all directions, he and his assistant were the cool, calm, and collected breaths of fresh air we needed. He's got such an artistic eye and knows how to be the most helpful when you don't know how to model or are stressed out. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

Wedding photography is a passion of mine and I love working with new couples. I believe wedding photography is more than just taking pictures...It's also about making a personal connection and a great client experience. By guiding couples along the way and providing input at the right time, they'll get the best experience possible. That's why I love shooting weddings!

My mantra

Professional photography has less to do with the equipment, and more about the person behind the camera. So when it comes to high pressure situations during the wedding day rely on someone with vast knowledge of light and situational expertise. The bottom line is cheap photography isn't good and good photography isn't cheap, so think twice about shopping for a photographer based strictly on price. Your wedding day experience will depend on it.

I use a professional web hosting company for all my clients. It allows customers all sorts or options when viewing and ordering products.

Premium Web Hosting service

All my wedding galleries are username and password protected because client privacy is a priority. These galleries are non-searchable and can only be found if that information is provided by the wedding couple. I typically generate this information for clients three weeks out from the wedding.

The site allows guests to directly order products such as gallery wraps, ornaments, albums, prints and so much more. It's one stop shopping at its best!

During the week after the wedding, there's always a lot of excitement to see wedding photos from the big day. I always want my clients to see what I captured from a professional point of view. The week following the wedding I'll always post a few photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for everyone to see and rave about.

Social Media previews

Event cards are great event take aways for guests and family members. These business sized cards include the couple's wedding event name, username and password. They're always available at the reception, and typically reside next to the guest sign in book for quick access. They can be put away during the reception, and later used for accessing wedding photos online.

event cards

A stress free bride is my goal, because it's your day to make memories and for the pros to make your day flow seamlessly. From when you need to get into the dress, to when you'll walk into the reception, we'll work together to plan out the when and where of the photography down to the minute. 

wedding day timeline

Digital brag books are a small collection of wedding day photo favorites for viewing on mobile devices. Guests can view and share the digital brag books photos though email, Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest or text. They can also use links in the brag book to view wedding photos. These have the option of being password protected or viewable by anyone.

digital brag books

I always scout out a wedding site if I haven't shot there before and if all possible I want to attend the rehearsal. I'm the only photographer I know of that does this but I think it's important for several reasons. I get to meet the officiant and wedding coordinator to discuss the nuances of your wedding ceremony along with any special event touches that may be planned. Secondly, to honor any specific rules of the church and officiant. Lastly, I want to meet the family members and wedding party and start to learn their names and personalities.

Scout / Rehearsal attendance

There are no travel fees within 100 miles of Mobile. I love to travel and shoot at new places, just keep in mind that I charge $.60/mile for any distance above and beyond that mileage.

Travel Fees

During the wedding day we'll take lots of photos. Not all of those photos are winners, some are bad exposures, eyes may be closed, etc. But rest assured that every photo that you see on the site will be on your custom USB drive. Photos provided are large enough to be used up to a 16x20 size so resolution isn't a problem for most instances. However, if you want to produce a large canvas or oversized print please let me know so I can get you the best size file for production. 
The photos are accompanied by a shared copyright release form so you can produce photos whenever you would like.

custom usb drive with release

Bridal sessions give you a chance to showcase that breathtaking dress you'll be wearing down the aisle. The location for the session is up to you, but we normally hit two locations to change up the look and we'll spend 2-3 hours taking photos. All bridal sessions include a $75 photo credit and all photos are available on USB for an additional $199 along with a shared copyright release. Most brides put the photo credit towards a 16x20 print for the reception, print but you can use it however you would like.

Bridal session

An engagement session is a great time for me to get to know you as a couple before the wedding day. I get a chance to see how you interact with each other and get a feel for how comfortable you are in front of the camera. The session is normally two locations and should include your mutual interests, hobbies or a place that's special to the both of you. 
I always encourage multiple wardrobes and I’m up for anything you can conjure up. If your creative juices aren’t flowing don't fret, I have plenty of ideas. Photos from this shoot make great engagement books too! All engagement sessions include a $75 photo credit and all photos are available on USB for an additional $199 along with a shared copyright release. 

Engagement session

Albums reflect your personal taste and showcases your favorite photos from the wedding day. I use only the best albums in the industry and each of them is handcrafted leather. It all starts with selecting wedding day photos and an album consultation. If you live out of town don't worry, we can do all this long distance as I have samples and lots of information online. 
During our consultation we’ll review leathers, colors, book manufacturers, your style and any upgrades you would like to make. I’m here to help guide you through the entire process. Standard albums measure 10x13 and all of them include leather covers and 20 pages (10 leafs). The sky is the limit though since I offer multiple size albums and over 100 options for covers. 
Album layout takes one month but revisions are normally minimal since the style, photos and album options are selected by you. No album is produced until you’re 100% happy with the layout. From there it takes about three weeks for the production process of creating your album. When albums are purchased outside of a wedding package they're priced at $899.

wedding albums

This page has limited content intentionally due to screen size. For expanded descriptions, samples and the best site experience please view this page on a laptop or tablet.

The addition of a second photographer can be helpful on the wedding day because it allows for coverage of the guys while they get ready for the wedding. They also give the second perspective of the ceremony, reception and can cover details while the main photographer takes care of the main shots. 
We offer two levels of coverage for second shooters; Half day and full day. Half day of coverage starts with the guys getting ready and ends with the ceremony and is $299. Full day coverage is start to finish and runs $499.

Second photographer

Parent albums are essentially duplicates of the main album in a slimmer version. They're also available in over 100 fabrics and faux leather options and even photographic wraps to match the main album. Perfect gifts for each parent set and can even be purchased in addition to wedding album packages for $349 for one, or two for $599. Standard sizes for these albums is 9.25x12.

Parent albums

Booth rental is included in the Platinum package but can also be added to any package to complete the guests overall experience during the wedding day. It's always the hit of the reception and your guests get to walk away with a print and lots of stories to tell their friends.

Headshots

What portrait type are you interested in?

children & newborns

I can come to you for head shots. A small fee is charged for travel based on location but it's very convenient for groups of employees. Plus when you schedule 6 or more employees the cost per person drops to $50/each.

location

Natural Light

Studio setting

It's always a good idea to bring a brush or any makeup you may need for touchups prior to shooting. You may also want to bring a small mirror to check yourself while we're shooting so you don't have to move from the shooting space.

What to bring

- Approximately 15 minute session time
- Multiple poses 
- Natural light or studio lighting
- 1-2 digital files for online or print use
- Private online gallery for viewing & ordering
- All photo selects from the session emailed
- Shared copyright release for photos

what you get for $69

head shots

During the shoot we'll review the photos as we take them so you can make your selects. And if you need some extra time to make your decision we can also post them on a private gallery for your review. Once we know your favorites they'll be cleaned up so you look your very best. Final photos are emailed to clients for an easy handoff.

selecting photos

At the time of booking a $50 non-refundable retainer fee is due. This guarantees your time and date for the shoot, and guarantees my time will not be lost to other bookings. The balance of the shoot is always paid at the time of the session and includes 10% sales tax per the state of Alabama.

Retainer fee

Natural light versus flash is a big consideration to understand before we start taking photos. A professional can shoot both ways with great precision, so just let us know which type of photography you prefer before we begin the session so I can plan accordingly. See the examples below for a visual explanation.

Where we do the shoot is completely up to you, and I want your input and vision for the shoot to be reflected in the final product. Most of the time we'll meet at the park but home setups can be just as fun and more comfortable for children.

location

The main thing to remember is that we want children to be relaxed and comfortable, but as a general rule don't put them in any stripes or bold patterns for the photos. They can play tricks with the camera and draw attention to a particular person. Also if there's more than one sibling try and put them in similar hue or saturation of levels of color to balance out the photo. So for example, if one child wears a pastel pink shirt have others in the photo wear a similar pastel. It's always good to dress in style too, but remember the test of time and how long that photo might be hanging in your living room or hallway.

wardrobe

Most of the time we're working around a sleep or school schedule so we'll figure out what works best for you and make it happen.

Because we're in the South it's always a good idea to bring a brush for the wind, a tissue to dab the moisture, your children's favorite toys and a snack/drink. The more props the merrier since we're trying to capture personalities.

What to bring

After the shoot, photos are processed within 5-7 days depending on current workload. From there all photo selects are uploaded to a private web site for viewing. At that point you can share any of the photos on social media and select your favorites. If you would like to order prints we'll discuss sizes and quantities and costs. From there I'll load the files to a USB and mail it along with any prints you've ordered.

Where we do the shoot is completely up to you. Keep in mind we want to incorporate your hobbies and interests so your personality is reflected in the photos. 

location

I'm always asked what clothing should be worn during a shoot... and the answer varies depending on what we're trying to convey in the photos. Bring a good selection of clothing to the shoot. You'll have time to change once or twice. Props are a part of that equation so give it some thought, because we want to capture your personality and what makes you - you. 
Also, don't worry about finding a place to change during the shoot, I've got a pop up changing room that works anywhere.

wardrobe

Most of the time we're working around a school schedule but weekends are fair game too. Late afternoon is best for shooting because the shadows will get softer and the wind dies down.

Because we're in the South it's always a good idea to bring a brush for the wind, a mirror to make sure you look your best, a tissue to dab the moisture, and something to drink. And remember more props the merrier since we're trying to convey your seniors individuality.

What to bring

After the shoot, photos are processed within two weeks depending on current workload. From there all photo selects are uploaded to a private web site for viewing. At that point you can share any of the photos on social media and select your favorites. If you would like to order prints we'll discuss sizes and quantities and costs.

Normally we want to aim for photo sessions to happen closer to when the sun is setting. The light gets softer, the wind calms down and the skies get beautiful. That's not always possible when planning for portraits,

Because we're in the South it's always a good idea to bring a brush for the wind, a mirror to make sure you look your best, a tissue to dab the moisture, your children's favorite toys and a snack/drink. A blanket or piece of furniture is something to think about as well.
