HALIE

is based out of Athens GA with her husband and partner, Alec, and their mini-aussie, Nola. While often on the road, she savors every chance she gets to be at home where her walls are lined with hand developed prints and her shelves hold knick-knacks found while exploring the world. Always the introvert, Halie found herself communicating her emotions more easily through photos, which led her to her ultimate passion of photographing people.

Halie attended the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia, where she developed much more than just photos in the dark room; she honed her passion to document a story from start to finish. Halie specializes in crafting creative portraits and has keen eye for hidden detail. When not shooting for clients, she loves to explore abandoned environments and photograph the beauty in places that most people have forgotten existed. In her spare time you may find her out dancing with friends or soaking in the tub - a glass of red wine in one hand and a block of cheese in the other.

ALEC

has a deep passion for creative work and splits his talent between being both a photographer and a musician. Though based out of Athens, GA with his wife, Halie, Alec travels frequently for music, whether he is playing or documenting it. Alec discovered his love for photography while taking portraits of musicians to accompany his interviews while working as a music journalist in Seattle, WA. 

Alec is quick to see the big picture for all that it could be while factoring in even the smallest (yet, often times, most vibrant) details.  Alec's forte is foresight into the next special moment, letting him capture the smallest, but most genuine points in time. He has been referred to on several occasions as a "baby whisperer" and loves to photograph families of all shapes and sizes. He enjoys a good sad song, long motorcycle rides and is always down to go see a (good) live band.

PAIGE

is based out of Athens, GA with a keen appreciation for minimalist design, quiet living, and working with her hands.  She plays mandolin in the midst of raising her three girls, and documents their home life together through photojournalism entries on her personal website, http://www.paigefrench.com.

A fixture in the Athenian creative community, Paige's work certainly stands above most of her peers. She is a perfectionist, which is the determining factor in her seemingly effortless compositions, constantly creating images that show perfect symmetry and balance. She has shot over one hundred weddings, honing her ability to remain unseen and unnoticed while capturing the big moments and every small one in between.
