There's nothing like a good vacation

Friday, May 29, 2009


Anna and I had planned a little weekend getaway this past weekend to Atlanta. Shopping, Braves game, etc... We were both looking forward to it.

This is me at Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro at Atlantic Station. I love that place.

Just a few hours later I found myself here....

IMG_6834

Nope...it had nothing to do with Copeland's....but I had to include one of the only real "vacation" pictures we shot this past weekend.

Now I love a good vacation as much as the next guy. But I prefer mine with relaxation not induced via i.v. Well that wasn't going to happen. I went from happy little guy eating crawfish ravioli to a drugged up little guy posing with his wife right outside the operating room at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital Midtown. I was having my appendix removed. Yay for vacation.

I can't say enough good things about the nurses and staff at Emory. They were incredible! Dr. Frank Jones was great to work with as well! He is the doctor who conducted my surgery. Dr. Jones and everyone else at Emory definitely made the best of a bad situation for me! I really do appreciate that.

But the most thanks goes to my lovely wife. She slept very little and spent all of her time making sure I was as comfortable as possible. I couldn't have done it without her.

Thanks to everyone else who called and brought food and who have sent gifts. It means a lot!

So I'm at home now recovering.....I should be back to normal shooting soon!

Mike and Erica are married

Wednesday, May 20, 2009


It is always an honor for a couple to choose me to photograph their wedding. But there's just a tad extra honor tossed in there when it's another photographer! Michael asked me to photograph he and Erica's wedding at Annabella at Cedar Glen in Huntsville, Alabama. We had rain and tornado warnings about an hour before the ceremony began but it cleared up and turned into a great afternoon once the wedding kicked off. As always...I'll be happy to take full credit for that!

As far as flower girls go...I mean...I'm fairly certain it doesn't get much cuter than this.

Sarah's Senior Portraits

Monday, May 18, 2009


Sarah is one of the many seniors graduating this month. I have no recollection of what was going through my mind right before I graduated. It's one of those moments in life when you would think your mind would be filled with profound thoughts and hopes for the future. I can't remember a thing. Oh well....hopefully Sarah will do a better job of remembering!

There is kind of an unwritten rule among photographers....if there is a VW van within 200 yards of your session...you must shoot it.

Annatations - May 17th, 2009

I'm going to start sprinkling posts from Anna's blog here on this blog. I mean...half the stuff she puts on that blog are things we have done together anyway...so why write it twice right? Unless I come up with a snappier name.....I will call this "Annatations".

On May 17th, 2009 Anna wrote:

On Friday night, we gambled with the Mother Nature, and went out to the rodeo in Athens. I wish I could find a picture, but I didn't have the time, nor desire to go digging through my mom's bazillion picture albums to find the picture of when I was Miss Rodeo Queen. Maybe I will find it and post it later...anyways, I digress. So we ended up going and it sprinkled maybe a little bit, but nothing major. As we were walking in, our neighbor AJ McCloud on WDRM stopped us and we were talking. He was about to do a live broadcast and asked if we would comment about the rodeo. Now, I am a trained professional in public relations...I should be ready at all times to "make a statement/give a comment." We had about 30 seconds before we were on...and I went blank...I am talking BLANK!! So, when he put the microphone in my face, what came out was just by the grace of God. It wasn't my best, but definitely not my worst. David of course had to throw in something goofy as usual...you can listen to it here...



So after our 30 seconds of fame, we went on in to enjoy a wonderful night at the rodeo. Here are some shots from the night....

David is obviously a little more excited than I am...

It is my goal next year to carry the flag...ya'll watch out!

Allie

Sunday, May 17, 2009


I had the privilege of taking some photos of Allie a few weeks ago. Her dad just so happened to have a red Corvette....how convenient for us. I offered up my Camry....but they felt the Corvette was a better fit.

Adam and Holly

Tuesday, May 12, 2009


March 28, 2009
Ceremony: The Old Brick Church in Mooresville, AL
Reception: Athens State University's Founders Hall
Caterer/Florist: Justin Myrick
Dresses: The Something Blue Shop
Cake: Debbie Hardiway
Music: Justin Miller
Reception Entertainment: Dave McConnell
Tent/Chair Rental: Party Plus
Videographers: CVP Videographer

I have known Holly for a long time. It is safe to say that I have known her for most of her life. Notice I said most of her life. Old people say that....young people say "I've known her all of my life." I'm just sayin'.

I was honored when she and Adam chose me to photograph their wedding back in March. I have known Adam for quite a while as well so the reception was a reunion of folks I haven't seen in years!

The wedding was in beautiful Mooresville, Alabama at the Old Brick Church. Now the weather for that day was supposed to be awful. There was a huge chance of not only rain but severe weather. There were clearly a lot of prayers going up for good weather because the day was perfect minus a 5 minute sprinkle right before they left the reception.

I would love to take credit for taking this photo but even if I wanted to I would be busted...if you look hard you'll see me crouching like a roadside ninja.

Justin Miller arranged a great set of acoustic guitar music for the ceremony.

One of the things that Holly wanted after the ceremony was to have a group shot of everyone who attended. I debated for months (literally) about whether I should take a large ladder out to Mooresville for that. Well I decided to use the ol' pole cam technique. I mounted my camera on top of a light stand....set the timer....and held it up high.

This next shot below is one of my favorites from the entire day...

Attention Holly and Adam....you need a 40"x 60" canvas of this next image hanging in your house! :)


ColeHuggins032809-1072

This is Holly laughing at my suggestion for a 40" x 60" canvas....no really Holly....I'm serious.

ColeHuggins032809-1080

The reception was at Athens State University's Founders Hall. This is a beautiful location for a wedding reception.

Dave McConnell sang during the reception. It was incredible. He sounds like you grabbed Frank Sinatra straight from a 1953 Vegas stage and dropped him into a 2009 wedding reception. Click here to listen to a sample from his website.

Now remember all those prayers I mentioned about the weather earlier? Well God showed out a little bit for us right at the end. Right about the time I was trying to decide how to light the grand exit He did it for me. You can't beat sunset light.

ColeHuggins032809-1270

I can't decide which view I like the best....GFC was working the balcony view of their exit.

ColeHugginsGFC-0694

Affordable Vintage Autos provided the vintage limo for their exit....what a classy way to leave! I mean...not as classy as the Toyota Camry I left in....but pretty classy nonetheless.

ColeHuggins032809-1300

Congratulations Adam and Holly! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!
