I've photographed so many things: seniors, families, sports (lol never again), couples, pets, and weddings. But I've discovered the mixture of emotions experienced on a wedding day is my ultimate bread and butter. I love the tears, special details, intimate moments, and of course a giant dance party at the end (can't forget about the cake..ooh the cake!!) and I honestly love the family aspect of a wedding. Don't get me wrong, I love a good elopement, but a full day of being surrounded by everyone that loves you and supports you?? We love all the feels!
I've had the privilege of photographing joy for 11 years, holy cow how has it been that long?? I started shooting weddings (and pretty much everything else lol) in high school! The craft then carried over into college to fuel my love for pizza and chocolate chip cookies :) I spent a couple years at the beautiful campus of Mississippi College then graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in Graphic Design. But let's be real, photography was my first love!
Hey there, Mariah here! If you're wondering how to say my name, it's easier than you think... "Mariah" like Mariah Carey and "Old-acre" like an old acre of land :)
Jared is seriously the coolest guy ever. He's an engineer during the week and my sidekick on the weekends! He also loves woodworking so our home is full of impressive handmade furniture! Milo just runs around and does Milo things, he's basically my child and loves any form of affection. Please ask me about my dog haha
We love hanging out at our sweet home and making new things, exploring local thrift and antique stores, traveling to new places, working out, gardening, and watching New Girl, Youtube, or any suspenseful movie! And PSA we know how to get down on the dance floor, so weddings are kind of our thing. We don't have a ton of rhythm but you know we do our thing...
Meet my husband and go-to second shooter, Jared (or JROD for short) and our office assistant/crazy golden doodle pup, Milo!
