So many new faces around here, I figured it was time to do another #fridayintroductions post. I wanted to do something a little different and tell you 5 things that I'm currently obsessing over. ❶First and foremost.. this man right here. Cheesy I know, but he is my favorite! Andrew and I will be married 10 years in December. Marrying Andrew was the best decision I've ever made, and I thank God everyday for him! ❤️ ❷ @scribd! How am I just finding about this? It is a subscription based service that allows you to read an unlimited amount of books through their app. They have books, magazines, audio books, and more! I love to read, so this is the greatest thing ever. It's so affordable too! Although I do love reading a hard copy, this is perfect for me to read while on the go, or even to listen to an audio book while I'm working. And even better that I got 3 months free in @ultimate_bundles. 🙌🏼 (this is not a sales post, I just really love it that much!) ❸ McAllisters peach tea. Ok, if you know me well, you know this isn't a new obsession. It's my absolute favorite beverage, and I could drink it every single day. I love it so much that I bought my own peach flavoring, and I now make my own peach tea so I can drink as much as I want. It's not quite as good, but it is close. ❹@trelloapp. I don't know why it has taken me so long to get on the Trello bandwagon, but now that I'm on it, I'm just amazed by it's ability to keep all of my stuff organized. I have tried many different apps and softwares for keeping up with my to do lists, etc, but this is the perfect fit for me. Plus, it really helps me keep track of my team members tasks as well. ❺ I have this app on my computer called self control, and it does exactly that. It allows you to block off all distracting websites for a certain amount of time. I think since most of the work I do is on my computer it is easy to lose track of what I'm doing and mindlessly scroll through fb or instagram and without realizing it, I've waisted half an hour of time. Self Control keeps me focussed and free from getting distracted. What are some of your favorite things right now? I would love to hear about them!
Happy Friday! Today, I'm spending the morning with my youngest two. Caelyn has a field trip today, so me and Lauryn are tagging along. After that, I have to get busy and get some work done. We are leaving for vacation next week, and I still have SO much to do before we go. Lots of late nights this week, and long work days, but I have a big goal of things to get accomplished before I leave, and it will be so worth it when we are at Disney next week! 🎉 So I'm going to enjoy the morning off with my girls, and then work like crazy the rest of the day. Let's pray I get a lot accomplished!🙏🏼 What are you doing on this Friday? I just love Mary Catherine's bouquet so much! 🌸 It was the perfect Spring wedding bouquet!

Daddy / daughter first looks are so special. When Mary Catherine's dad saw her for the first time in her wedding dress, he had the biggest smile on his face. What a sweet moment to be able to photograph. I just love what I do!

I love when I meet couples who were high school sweethearts!!! It’s such a fun story to tell, and Hayes and Collin are one of those sweet couples who fell in love in their teen years!!! Their senior year, Collin asked Hayes to the prom at The Grand in Fairhope, so this was exactly where they wanted to shoot their engagement session! It was an absolute ideal day for a photographer!! The weather was gorgeous, the sun was shining, the temperature was perfect~no humidity (yay!!!), and we ended the session with the most beautiful sunset ever!! Check out the link in my profile to see more pictures from this session!
Pretty, intimate, delicate~the wedding vows are one of the most beautiful moments of every ceremony.💜 Styling Workshop @juliepaisleyphotography Venue | @longhollowgardens Florals | @elizabethearnestflorals Ribbon | @honeysilksco Calligraphy and Paper Goods | @gracefullymadeart Ring dishes | @marabelladish
Can we take a minute to appreciate this gorgeous mossy oak? One of my favorite things about living in the south is the oak trees. I remember growing up on the Gulf Coast (Gulfport, MS), and as a kid I always loved driving down Hwy 90 on the beach and admiring all of the oaks that made a canopy over the highway. It always bring back sweet memories when I see large oaks. And of course, they are super fun to photograph. Hayes + Collin weren't too shabby either. 😍
Pearls and Lace~so feminine, so elegant, so lovely. It's a touch of southern style that I will never get tired of!! Photo by associate photographer, Elizabeth #jtpelizabeth
Mary Catherine and Matt were my first newlyweds of the 2018 Spring season!! They are both from Los Angeles, and I love that they chose to tie the knot here in our very own Lower Alabama (LA)!!

I was so excited when Rachel chose to have her bridal session at The Pillars in Mobile!! I absolutely love this place, and I love shooting bridal sessions!! It gives me a chance to really take my time with the bride and get some gorgeous images that she and her groom will treasure for a lifetime!
A fairytale picture of love!! Haley + John share such a sweet connection, and Brianna (one of my associate photographers) says they were a joy to photograph!! You can tell by all their images that they were naturals in front of the camera and that they simply enjoyed being with each other!! We love when we can capture this affection on camera!!
