University of Alabama Tuscaloosa Graduation Senior Portraits



I love to do college graduation portrait sessions, and I’d love to do a college graduation portrait session with you! I specialize in graduation sessions with a cinematically inspired visual touch to help students mark this great milestone in their lives.

As we approach the day of your session, I’ll work with you to put together a timeline, get your creative input, and figure out the best stylistic choices for the shoot. After all, it’s YOUR portrait session. I want as much input as you want to provide!

If this all sounds good, let’s get a session on the calendar and set up a shoot on campus! I can’t wait to hear from you.

Samford University Birmingham Alabama Graduation Senior Portraits



When you inquire about a college graduation or high school senior portrait session, I’ll ask you what time you’d like to do the shoot.

I photograph portrait sessions in the early morning (At or just after sunrise) or in the afternoon/evening (Think closer to sunset).

I will, however, not do portrait sessions during the mid-day (A little before, during, and right after 12:00 P.M.) as the lighting conditions can be quite harsh. I don’t want to run that risk for you.

Do also note that I limit myself to two portrait sessions a day to ensure every student who books with me gets the proper attention they deserve.

UAB Graduation Portraits Birmingham Alabama



My overall approach for the photos from graduation + senior portrait sessions is to present them with a cinematic, dreamy, and moody approach, much like they were stills from a movie.

That being said, I do want the photos to reflect your vision along with mine. This is why I strongly encourage students to let me know their creative ideas and suggestions.

Georgia Tech Atlanta Georiga Graduation Senior Portraits



Your graduation + senior portrait session should, above all else, be about celebrating this great milestone in your life! 

I’ll make sure the session is 100% stress-free so that you can relax and enjoy all the aspects of the shoot.

Now if you’re looking for someone that’s going to be rigid and do things with a cookie-cutter approach, I might not be the best fit for you.

I like to do things a bit differently, and I love working with those who enjoy the same!

Columbus State Graduation Portraits Georgia



Birmingham, Alabama is home and my base of operations. That means a large part of my coverage area has been Tuscaloosa, Alabama along with the Nashville + Atlanta metro areas and locations throughout Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

I am, however, happy to come to any school or location throughout the United States for a graduation + portrait session. Travel fees might have to be applied, but I will work with you on that because I never want distances to be a factor in getting the portraits you want and deserve!

The following is a list of colleges and universities I’m readily available for when it comes to a portrait, but, if you don’t see your school listed, don’t worry. I’d love to add it to the list!


The University of Alabama, Auburn University, UAB, Birmingham Southern, Samford University, The University of Montevallo, Troy University, Jacksonville State University, Alabama State, Alabama A&M, University of Alabama Huntsville, University of North Alabama, Athens State University, University of West Alabama, Stillman College

Alabama Graduation Portraits


David took my graduation photos, and I must say that they turned out brilliant! He gave such good direction, and he made sure I got all of the shots I wanted to take. I got my pictures back super quickly, and I feel that the work really spoke for itself. If you’re looking for a photographer in the Birmingham/Tuscaloosa area, I cannot recommend DSmithImages highly enough!!!

BOOK DAVID!! I can go on and on about him! He did my masters' graduation pictures at The University of Alabama and I was so impressed and ecstatic with the results! David was affordable and gave me a great portfolio with a good quantity of pictures. He also let me split a session with a friend making it well within a reasonable price range for the finished products, and I got fun, memorable pictures with friends! We were able to make the shoot very unique and personal, he helped pose us and let us add on whatever shots we wanted as well! He was extremely nice and fun to shoot with, flexible with dates, affordable, captured amazing images, does not over-edit, and was very attentive and responsive!! I never had to wait long at all for a response from him. These are all things that are extremely hard to find in a photographer in Tuscaloosa. I would know, I have lived here for over 5 years, have two degrees, and I've had many kinds of graduation photoshoots!

David was so awesome and so flexible while taking my senior photos! He led the way but ultimately let me be myself with where and how we took the photos! I highly recommend David for your graduation, wedding, or other portrait needs.
