The unseen moments, the details, and those moments that make your heart skip a beat…that’s what I’m passionate about. I’m all about catching the fun, genuine, quirky, and sometimes-weird love you have for one another. I’m experienced in those posed, necessary parts of the day… but if that’s all you’re expecting, you may get more than you bargained for.
When you feel like no one is watching, where all you’re concerned about is a future spent side by side I want to capture the little details and the big feelings, I want to catch the moments you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
Hey there, Mariah here! If you're wondering how to say my last name, it's easier than you think..."Old-acre" like an old acre of land :)
Living in the great city of Huntsville Alabama with my curly headed husband and crazy golden doodle pup! My husband, Jared (or JROD for short) 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...
I've had the privilege of photographing joy for 9 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!
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!
Anyways, that's me! It's so good to virtually meet you! Let's be friends in real life :)
So if it sounds like we should be friends,
go ahead and say hello!
