Just a quick note to let everyone know that we will be closed through July 6, for revival at our church (Higdon Free Holiness Church). Everyone is welcome to attend, so if you're interested but don't know how to get there, just give me a holler! We will likely respond to emails; however, phone calls will not be returned until after the 6th.

I hope you all have a very Happy & Safe July 4th!!!

Congrats, Jason & Traci!

On the evening of my father-in-law's funeral, I was scheduled to photograph the wedding of Jason Black and Traci Karigan; however, my good friend and mentor, Mr. Wayne Murphree, stepped in and shot the wedding for me. I cannot tell you what a relief it was being able to have Wayne do this for me! As you might imagine, it's hard to get in the mindset of photographing a joyous occassion a couple of hours after such a sad one. Wayne did a GREAT job; and I can't wait to be able share them with the Black/Karigan Family! Here's a sample to tide you over for a while!

Alvie C. McKenzie

This week, Kellie and I experienced the loss of her father. Alvie, 48 years old, died suddenly and unexpectedly on Tuesday evening from a massive heart attack after finishing the vinyl siding on the back of our studio. I was honored to be at his side when he passed and to have been the last one on earth to speak to him. While I could write a complete novel about his life and how much we're going to miss him, I just wanted to quickly jump in a thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and many acts of kindness through the past few days, and to explain why I have been out of pocket this past week. Please continue to remember our family throughout the coming days, as well as my mother-in-law, Vicky, and Kellie's brother's family.
For probably the next few weeks, we will be less available than we normally are; however, please still call or write with any questions or to schedule appointments.
