WE ARE HELEN AND BRYAN

PARTNERS FOR LIFE, STUDIO MANAGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER, SETTLED BACK IN THE STATE THAT WE LOVE AFTER YEARS OF WANDERING….

 

We have an 8 year old, an excitable german shepard, a lackadaisical guinea pig and a complete love for our work. Our journey into the wedding world was accidental. Bryan worked as a commercial photographer shooting for brands like The Gap, Michael Kors, Vera Wang and David’s Bridal. He shot his first wedding standing in for a photographer who showed up drunk. Then there was a set of bridal portraits for a commercial client who wanted to see what she looked like in her dress. Then we shot a wedding for a friend as our present to them. We fell in hook, line and sinker after that; and once we were in, we were all in!

We pride ourselves on exceptional pictures coupled with five star service. In fact, we believe your experience with us is just as important as the photographs we deliver. This is why in the time leading up to your nuptials, on your special day, and after the wedding we work to make your life easier. You can expect quick responses, problem solving, plenty of information on how things are going, speedy delivery of downloadable images, and generally making sure you have no stress around the photography.

On your wedding day, it is about being quiet and observant and making as few interruptions as we possibly can. We like for our clients to say they barely noticed us. Bryan works in the moment, creatively responding to what he sees going on around him. The delicate balance of framing, light and moment is always in his mind. This means you end up with a pretty unique set of photos of your day.

Our business has won several awards including: The Knot Best of Wedding (3 times in a row), Wedding Wire Couples Choice (also three times), David’s Bridal Alabama Wedding Photographer of the Year (twice in a row) and Alabama Weddings Magazines 10 Great Photographers. We are insanely proud of these distinctions because they are awarded based on our customers’ feedback or by our peers based on the quality and caliber of our work.

We support marriage equality. Love is love.
