Welcome to the 

 Joyful photography for fun, laid-back couples who believe in marriage.


We're Katie & Alec Dixon. Ice cream obsessed, fun-loving husband-and-wife wedding photographers based in Birmingham, Alabama. We shoot joy-filled weddings on the weekends and fill our weeks with editing, too much sugar, and things that make us laugh hard. It's our belief that wedding planning can be stressful, but your wedding photography shouldn't be. Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the web. We hope that you'll stay a-while and enjoy our latest work & posts.
