BubbleWood Photography » Wedding & Portrait Photographer based in Manteca, CA

BubbleWood is MOVING……to CALIFORNIA!

When my husband’s company came to him with the prospect of interviewing for a job in California, we had a lot of thinking and praying to do. Neither him nor I have ever lived outside of the state of Alabama, even though we love to travel. It would be a big adjustment for us, but we knew that if there was ever a time to make a big move, it was now, before we have kids. So off to California he went to interview against 3 other candidates and he got it! I am so proud of him and so thankful for how God has favored him in his job. We couldn’t have imagined this, but it is going to be a great new adventure for us. Of course, we are going to miss all our family and friends here in Bama, and I am very sad to leave all my wonderful clients to find new photographers. But ultimately, we know God is placing us in California and we are looking forward to what He has in store for us both in our careers and as a family.

I want to thank everyone who has helped or supported me in any way to get to where I am now. I would not be confident to start again in a totally new place if it weren’t for the great support I received here, so THANKS!!

If you want to stay updated on our new adventures, you can follow me on Instagram, and I will probably post here as well from time to time.

I love getting inquiries that give me an opportunity to do something new and different. When Marianne contacted me about doing a craft beer themed engagement session, I thought it would be a really fun and interesting. We met at their favorite hangout, Pensacola Bay Brewery in Downtown Pensacola. It was a warm, sunny day with lots of love between these two. They are so tender with one another with just the right amount of playfulness. I’m so thankful to have met them and shared some nice conversation after the session was over. They are a great couple, and I know they will make a gorgeous bride and groom. Congratulations guys!

My nephew Nolan : Birth Photography : Manteca CA Photographer

It is something I will never forget. Waiting anxiously for 2.5 weeks for my first nephew to be born. He was slow coming, but definitely worth the wait. My sister is such a strong woman and she definitely proved it. Nolan was born on July 29 at 3:54am, 6 lbs 14 oz, 19.5″ and perfect. There was a bit of debate as to who he would look like, you see, my sister was an adorable baby but Adam was not exactly as adorable so everyone was hoping he would look like Michelle. I personally think he is a good mixture of them both. Either way, his aunt Jaimie loves him.

The plan was for me to be in the room and take photos of the whole event, but when the doctor sent her in for a c-section, I was not allowed. Thankfully, one of the nurses was also a photographer and was gracious enough to take my camera in and get some unbelievable photos in the operating room. I could not be more thankful for Courtney Ellis doing such a wonderful thing for us. Thank you!

NYC : Summer 2014

Kumiko planned yet another trip to the States, this time hitting up Chicago before meeting me again in New York City. This time I went by myself. It was a bit scary making the trip alone, flying alone, taking the subway alone. But I honestly felt so empowered by doing it, like I could do anything now. Silly, I know.

Kumiko was my sophomore college roommate, and continues to be a great friend!

One of the first things on my list was Central Park. We didn’t get to see much at all the last time so I wanted to cover as much of it as I could. If I lived in NYC, I would definitely go for a stroll through the park everyday I possibly could. I even talked Kumiko into doing a mini-”session” while in the park. We took turns taking each others picture, it was so much fun! We also saw Trump Tower, the Empire State Building, the High Line (a definite must-see), and the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn Bride Park AT NIGHT. It was magical!! We walked all the way across Brooklyn Bridge over to the park and it was so worth it. The perfect way to end my short trip to NYC. I’m sure there will be another visit at some point in my future. I still have to see a Broadway show, of course!

We stumbled onto a film set. I don’t have a clue what they were filming, but from what I could tell, it was just this guy sitting in the driver’s seat of a cab.

Beth & Brian : Ezell House : Mobile AL Wedding Photographer

Beth and Brian are FUN! They just make you feel like one of the guys and like anything could happen, that kind of fun. From my first meeting with Beth, I knew I would love working with them. Their engagement session was fantastic, and their wedding day would be nothing short of fabulous as well. I simply loved all their little details and their Middle Bay Lighthouse custom design that showed up on their stationary and even the cake. The lighthouse was where Brian proposed so it was the perfect symbol for their wedding day.

The ceremony and reception took place at the historical Ezell House in Downtown Mobile. Thanks so much, Mr. & Mrs. Shepard, for trusting me with your memories. I am so blessed to have met you both!
