Introducing the Goodie and Smith Weddings Team | Alabama Luxury Wedding Photographers

One thing we’ve learned over the years as wedding photographers (and moms!) is that we can’t do it all alone. We’re lucky to have an incredible team surrounding us. These amazing women support us behind the scenes and out on wedding days. Truly we couldn’t be more grateful for them and we’re thrilled to be able to take a chance to introduce everyone who makes our wedding days possible! Meet the Goodie and Smith Weddings Team!

Lead Photographer: Toni Goodie

Toni is one of our lead photographers and the co-owner of Goodie and Smith Weddings! Her birthday falls on Halloween, she loves the Office and is an amazing softball/t-ball mom. When we asked why she photographs weddings, she joked it was for the cake (or was it a joke?). Lately, she’s enjoying pizza, buffalo wings and charcuterie boards have been her jam as of late!

Jessica digs Ke$sha and loves literally every food. Fairhope AL is her favorite place and in her spare time, she loves to garden and read.

Associate Photographer: Ashton Clark

Ashton is the newest member of Goodie and Smith Weddings team! She’s our new associate photographer!! We’re THRILLED she’s joining us so that we can better serve our amazing couples. She and her husband love hosting game nights, spends most of her days tripping over cars (boy mom!) and reading historical fiction. Ashton enjoys finding new ethnic foods to try and enjoys Ethiopian, Thai, Greek and Peruvian foods. When she’s not working or tripping over cars, she loves water coloring and hand embroidery.

Office Admin: Veronica Kramer

Veronica keeps our lives in check behind the scenes as our admin! She helps us with our website, social media, album designs, and pretty much anything we wind up needing! We couldn’t do this without her!! When she’s not in the office, you can find her browsing Target or enjoying some Mexican food. She’s also an avid reader and loves to decorate.

Wedding Day Assistant + Office Assistant: Paige Stribling

Paige has been crucial to our office since our new brand went live! She works in two roles for us at GSW, including wedding day assistant and other admin tasks behind the scenes. When you see her on a wedding day, make sure you wave! Paige is obsessed with giraffes and NYC, loves pizza and skittles and watches sports in her free time. We love knowing that Paige is helping us on small tasks that help create an even bigger and better product in the end for our clients!

Wedding Day Assistant: Holly Faulkner

Holly is one of our wedding day assistants and a long-time friend of Jessica and Toni’s. We’re SO lucky to know her! And we always have a great time on wedding days because we love watching everything come together in celebration of our couples. Holly is a fantastic assistant but also super creative in her own right. She makes dresses for her little girls. It’s no surprise she loves to sew and spend time in Hobby Lobby! She also loves pizza, pasta, and tacos – oh, and Target!
