Adrienne Maples grew up drawing on the walls, performing in plays and making pretty pictures anyway she could. As a teenager, she received her first film camera and began learning the magical ways of the darkroom. More than 20 years have passed since she first fell in love with light, film and photography. Yet while digital technology has significantly changed the craft of photography, Adrienne remains true to its roots. Using light, creative composition and her Southern charm she creates timeless lifestyle portraits that keep her clients coming back year after year after year.
Hi! My name is Julie and I'm the veggie eating, ballet dancing half of this dynamic duo. I started life as a ballet teacher, well… school teacher turned ballet teacher and discovered photography in 2007. I really love to organize things (Mike is over on his side of the office emphatically shaking his head YES right now). While I do love a good organizing spree, what really makes me jump out of bed each morning is seeing how God is using us, our lives, our marriage, and even our business, to impact this world. I am deeply in love with that handsome man of mine. I can't BELIEVE I got so lucky. Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. About me. Hmmm... I love photographing faces, up close and personal. 9 times out of 10, I think kids are more interesting than grown-ups. I fall asleep in the car - a lot. I have a teensy bit of an introvert streak.
Drink coffee, chase moments, tell stories. Repeat. We are a husband and wife team who are crazy about each other, best friends, passionate followers of Christ, lovers of all things coffee, history buffs, wannabe travelers – who got our first dose of the awesomeness that is photography back in 2007. We didn’t know this adventure was on the horizon, but when it hit, man… It hit us both pretty hard and we were HOOKED. Looking back, we could never have guessed where this journey would take us. The BEST part of this adventure is navigating it together, for sure. It may sound sappy, but we are best friends who spend every day together, and for us, it just works. Way back before photography, we had separate careers, separate schedules and it just wasn’t any fun. This is definitely better. We love to have fun. In fact, it’s going to be a requirement that you do, too. We think great things can be accomplished through good old-fashioned happiness. Moment driven photography is what we’re about. An authentic image, whether sweet or silly, happy or sad, is going to stir something in you every time you see it. And THAT is what we’re ultimately hoping for the opportunity to provide you. Real images, stirring images, beautiful images. Blessings, MIKE + JULIE
