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.

University of Alabama Tuscaloosa Graduation 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 that books with me gets the proper attention they deserve.

First and foremost, these are your photos. I want the final product to reflect your wishes, so I always encourage students to let me know the visual style they prefer.

That being said, my overall approach for these photos is to present them with a cinematic flair, much like they were stills from a movie. I like a dreamy and moody approach, overall, but, again, I want the photos to reflect your vision along with mine.

This is why I’m happy to give you versions of the photos “directly out of the camera” (Cropped and adjusted for exposure) along with edited versions to present the cinematic approach I mentioned.

Let's Talk About a Portrait Session!

I’d love for you to read some kind words from those I've worked with + check out some of my featured work!

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!
