If you haven’t visited Huntsville, AL recently… it’s time you did!  I have been photographing the incredible work of Matheny Goldmon Architecture + Interiors for over a year.  One of their most recent projects was the renovation of the Huntsville Botanical Gardens.  It is an absolutely stunning place to visit and a perfect place for the entire family. Below are some of my favorites shots from the botanical gardens, as well as, several of their other projects throughout the city.  Be sure to check out the beauty of Huntsville!

When you have to take a 4-wheeler through the mud to get to your shooting locations, you KNOW it’s going to make for some amazing pictures!  Over July 4th we visited our family camp nearly 13 hours from home in the mountains of Pennsylvania.  When my cousin, Carson, asked me to photograph her senior pictures there… I knew there was no better place that suited her & our family.  Carson is an absolutely amazing girl & I have been in awe of her these past few years.  This first photo of her was taken at what we call “The Beautiful Place”.  Carson is beautiful inside & out.  I’m so incredibly proud of her.  Congrats Carson & I hope you have the BEST senior year!

Brooks is a crazy cool guy and is going to be extremely successful in whatever he puts his mind too!  He is very kind, courteous & a genuinely good guy.  We had a blast during his senior portrait session & his sister helped us bring out his best smile… I wish we had some behind the scenes video of it!!   Brooks family just moved to Franklin, TN this past year, and love it already.  Downtown Franklin was the perfect spot for his Senior pictures.  Have a great senior year Brooks!!

This is the most beautifully, helpful & inspiring DIY books (or any other medium for that matter) I have ever seen.  This is the first book I have ever photographed.  I will tell you I was in awe of the whole process from start to finish.

This book was a gift to me…

At the end of 2015, I said to the Lord “ok what’s next??”.  I had been shooting weddings & portraits (and a few commercial projects) for 10+ years and I was desiring a new inspiration.  Something fresh.  Something creative. Something… I really didn’t even know what to ask for.  Not long after I expressed that desire to God, I received an email from Courtney telling me she was starting her 4th book and wondered if I’d photograph it.  I cannot express the JOY I felt through the entire process.  This book has brought as much color to my life as can be found in its’ pages.  As much flavor to my life as can be found in its’ recipes.  As much celebration in my life as can be found in each party.

I know we will never know how many parties are inspired by this book, how many celebrations are creatively hosted, or how many conversations & friendships deepened by this book encouraging more hospitality.  But the idea of more laughter, good food & celebrations thrills me to no end.  I thank the Lord for this gift to me & pray it brings joy to all that receive it.  We would love to celebrate with all of you at any of the Pizzazzerie book signings!  More info on cities & date of Courtney’s book tour can be found HERE
