It’s hard to believe this little girl is already (more than) 4 months old!!! It took me a while to post these, but I had to because not only do I love this family, but I love Fresh 48 sessions too.
I don’t know if it’s seeing the excitement and intense love that fills the room, or being able to talk with and encourage new moms the best I can in their most vulnerable, emotional time, but I absolutely love these sessions. So I thought I’d finally share the Murphy’s Fresh 48 session this week, and making this session even more special is how much we love this little family!
We met the Murphy’s through a newlywed’s small group at our church, and I thank God for the friendships we’ve made there and being able to “do life” with all the couples. It’s even more special as some of us make the huge transition into parenthood - together!
Even with these big life changes we all get to meet once a week to catch up, hang out, and love on each other’s babies!
So here’s a few of my favorite’s of the Murphy’s and their family, loving on their precious new addition, and I am so honored that I got to be there for it!
If I could choose one word for the day, it would be excitement! Both the bride and groom were absolutely radiating the joy and excitement they felt leading up to the first look, and at the first look, they broke out dancing.
Wedding days can feel busy and sometimes even rushed, but these two stayed completely even-keeled and joyful the entire day. All the details from each vendor, and the busy hands of their friends and family members, fell together to make the day com together without a single hitch.
My favorite part of the day? Right after their first kiss as husband and wife, the crowd went wild throwing their “wedding towels” and Greg swept his bride off her feet, carrying and spinning her down the aisle. Such a picture of pure and candid happiness as these two high school sweethearts finally became “one”.
Take a look at a few of our favorite images from their big day!

I have been so excited to share more images from Katie and Hayden’s wedding at Creekside Plantation in Mooresville. It had been raining all weekend, and we were so happy that, even though the ground was wet, we were dry the whole wedding day! Katie and Hayden met at work at a local tech company in Huntsville, and the rest is history.
When I met these two for the first time, I was so delighted at how “on board” Hayden was with everything. He came to our first meeting, didn’t complain a bit during engagement photos, and you can tell that he was soaking in every minute of their wedding day with his beautiful bride. This mixed with Katie’s sweet, friendly demeanor - to say these two had chemistry is an understatement!
These two were dressed for the event - check out Katie’s regal dress, which went perfectly with Creekside Plantation’s feel.
Their 1st look was one to remember. They wanted to be alone, so everyone waited inside (looking through the windows, I’m sure!) as Katie playfully covered up Hayden’s eyes before telling him to turn around. After his initial “wow” they immediately began to talk about their day and events so far.
Being semi-new to Huntsville, I was so eager to be able to shoot at Creekside Plantation. Ever since I visited the wedding venue, I fell in love with it’s pristine landscaping and views. The drive in may be one of my favorites - from the tall fields to the driveway lined with trees!
Oh, and y’all know how much I love dogs in ceremonies! (Our dog was in our wedding as well!) Look at the love Katie has for this little guy.
The ceremony redefined “I can’t even”. Look at these cuties leading the way down the aisle:
Here are a few more from their big day. There were vows, tears, hugs, toasts and dancing - lots and lots of dancing!
