I’m Pam Hults, the owner and lead shooter for a’ laVie Photography, and I’ve been a photographer my whole life. I started in high school and went on to major in photo- journalism at UT. Working as an editorial photographer was a blast but I knew it wasn’t a forever fit. When I started shooting weddings, I found that I loved the sweetness and beauty a wedding day can bring so I decided to make weddings my full time career.
About the name a’ laVie… I was a photographer in the New Orleans market when I first started shooting weddings and a’ laVie was a popular toast that meant “To Life!” Since I’m a photojournalist at heart, I thought it was the perfect name for a photographer wanting to photograph people. In Texas, I’ve been asked “Who is Al and is he one of your shooters?” Since I really don’t speak french, I have to laugh because I can see one of MY family members asking the same thing…
I’m also the mom of a teenage boy who makes me laugh and I love it when the house is full of boys that I’ve known since third grade. His friends call me by my first name and I sometimes think about how cool it will be when they get older and meet that one girl that stops them in their tracks. I really love weddings and I know I’ll be that mom or friend’s mom that cries and is thrilled at the same time. It never gets old.
