Meet Martha & Daniel Howell

When you get in touch with Howell Photography, you'll probably first hear back from Martha (since she seems to be online 24/7). She's the one that takes care of most of our client communication and setting up appointments and many of our shoots and even weddings. So, basically she does most of the work. Just... shhh... don't tell Daniel that!

Martha has always been the brains behind our photography business, but soon developed a love for the art form as well. She specializes in capturing natural portraits and the beauty of each bride in the small intimate moments of a wedding day. 

Martha: My favorite part of the wedding day is that moment (usually after the first look) when the bride & groom breathe a sigh of relief - let go of nerves and stress - and then relax into beautiful natural portraits full of love and joy. (With minimal posing... because really... on YOUR wedding day, I don't need to tell you how to look in love... !)

She loves Starbucks, binge watching Netflix series that she's too busy to watch when they air in real time, editing images (seriously!), playing the piano, and being mommy to the Howell's five (SERIOUSLY!) precious children..

Side Note: Martha is a Tennessee Vols fan. Poor Daniel!

If it weren't for Daniel, Howell Photographer would never exist. It was his idea that quickly grew into a blossoming business about a decade ago. Daniel has a love for all things technical when it comes to photography (lenses, gears, lights, and more!); but, he also has an amazing creative side and specializes in high-fashion art images during engagement sessions and weddings. 

Daniel loves coffee (one of his phrases is "But first... Coffee!), playing and building guitars, woodworking, and more. He's a man of many talents and hobbies, which serves him well to be able to see the world from all sorts of angles.

Daniel: I enjoy capturing those *real* expressions during the wedding day - the complex emotions that manifest in not only the bride and groom, but in their family members who feel the flood of joy in participating in their big day... those emotions that are fleeting, but then last a lifetime through photos. 

Side Note: Daniel is an Alabama Crimson Tide fan. Poor Martha!
