Welcome, my name is Karen Waters and I am a on-location lifestyle portrait photographer located in Mt. Olive, AL.  My photo sessions are mostly in natural settings.  Sometimes this happens at an old barn across from my house, or at a wild flower garden of a friend, or at a beautiful waterfall.  I love to take photos and every photo session will have a special and unique feel.  Forgoing forced smiles and poses; I embrace the natural smiles and expressions.  When you look at an image by Waters Photography through the years, I want you to remember the experience of a custom photographer and the personal attention to you and your needs.  I want you to cherish the beauty and quality of the images and the memories that will last a lifetime.

Maddie and Ryan

Oh my, how I laughed at this sweet couple. Well, mostly just at Ryan. He’s a total goofball, in the best way. We started out at Clarkson Covered Bridge where Ryan proposed, and then we headed to downtown Cullman. The week before we had to cancel the shoot, because the temperature high for the day was only 37. One week later we were able to get together and the high was 66. Yes, Alabama weather is crazy. Ryan and Maddie are adorable. These two are made for each other, and their personalities are the perfect compliment to each other. I can’t wait for their wedding day!! Let the count down begin. Big shout out to Southern Accents Architectural Antiques for letting us have fun in their shop and courtyard. >GP6A5705a GP6A5781 GP6A5821a GP6A5841 GP6A5864a GP6A5900a GP6A5927a GP6A5991a IMG_0015 IMG_0036 IMG_0062b IMG_0111

The Howell Family

I met up with the adorable Howell family on Morris Avenue a few days ago for a session. We had a gorgeous day, albeit a little cold. But everyone was such a trooper. It was so much fun getting to know them. Dad is a big movie buff and kept me in stitches quoting movie lines.

Cris and Lindsey

I have known Lindsey’s mom and dad for years. I was a bridesmaid in their wedding and they are two of our dearest friends. I have the privilege of working with Cris’ step-mother, she is my principal. So I was so excited they wanted us to do their engagement pictures. After spending time with these two during their engagement shoot, I can hardly wait for their wedding day. They were a hoot!!! Their love for each other is so sweet. Cris is a marine and you can tell they make the most of their time together. They had so many fun ideas for their shoot, and they ended the session with a paint fight. They were so much fun!!!

Tommy and Magan

Jeff and I are always so honored to be asked to take photos at a friend’s wedding. Magan and her family are so special to us. Magan is a fellow teacher and she actually did her student teaching in my classroom. She loves her bling, and so I knew her wedding would have some!!! Her bouquet was beautiful, with just the right touch of bling. The day was filled with sweet little surprises, an old antique truck stopped for us to do a few photos with, Tommy doing a selfie as they walked out as husband and wife, the preacher pulling out his cell phone to video the first kiss, Jeff having to take his knife to the wedding dress, and Magan and Tommy thought they would be leaving in a white limo, but instead it was a hot rod school bus. Such a fun day!!!
