quick facts about me
I'm mom to a spunky, curly-haired 6 year old girl, army wife, crazy horse girl, and full time creative spirit. My journey to photography occurred by happy accident, and I have truly found my passion and the career that I was meant to follow. I invest greatly in my amazing clients who entrust their important photographs to me and take pride in seeing the joy that it gives them!
My long-time obsession with horses gave me a start in equine photography and we now photograph over 15 horse shows and events annually. Since the origin of Hannah Draughan Photography, I have found a great passion in wedding photography and the creativity of portraiture!
+ My husband, Andrew, assists me at many horse shows and events and my 6 year old second-shooter-in-training, Sydney, often tags along too!
+ I have been showing Arabian and Half-Arabian horses since I was 9!
+ I graduated from Lincoln Christian University in 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration.
+ My business was first based in central Illinois until we relocated to the Huntsville, Alabama area in 2020.
+ We own 2 Arabian horses (Desert and Pierre) a Half-Arabian horse (Bristol), a Shiba Inu dog (Niko) and 1 barn cat turned house cat (Sven).
+ I was named homecoming queen for my high school in 2005!

As a photographer, lighting is often the most important aspect of an image. With years of experience, I utilize both natural light and flash that allows me to capture a beautiful photograph in nearly any lighting environment.
From lighting large horse show arenas to wedding receptions, Hannah Draughan Photography is committed to producing magazine quality photos for every event!
Many photographer's dream of holding the title of professional photographer from a young age, but that was not the case for me. I fell into my love for photography after my daughter was born and I wanted to capture every second. My experience with horses launched my equine and horse show photography and my love for events led me to photograph weddings and corporate events!
Colors are so powerful and enriching in photographs, and often tell a story of their own. I love capturing photos that are true-to-life in color with a timeless feel that allows clients to enjoy them for years without feeling that they were simply trendy or fell out of style.
We also offer many other graphic design services for business and individuals including: logo design, brochures, flyers, custom invitations, t-shirt design, magazine ads, business cards and more! Visit our design website to learn more at design.hannahdraughan.com
Our favorite vacation spot is Estes Park, Colorado! We love escaping the summer heat in the mountains of Colorado and Estes Park is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen! We enjoy hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park and, of course, hitting up the mountain shops!
We realize that photographers are not one-size-fits-all, and we would love the opportunity to meet with you and see if we are a great fit for your upcoming event or portrait experience.
