Sarah Israel: Arden Photography

Sometimes we have the opportunity to spend a lot of quality time with our brides before their wedding day.  Sarah will be getting married this Summer and what better way to prepare than a pre-wedding photo shoot.  We spent the day with a few wardrobe changes and way too much fun for a random Tuesday afternoon!  From casual to glam, Sarah definitely gets the award for style icon!  Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day and we can't wait to photograph your wedding Sarah!  


Sarah & Jeremy Engagement: Arden Photography

I drive past Jemison Park everyday on my way to and from work.  It's one of those places that you notice but you never really have time to stop and enjoy it.  Sometimes, a nice stroll in the park is exactly what we need as a refresher for the week to come.  It makes it even more enjoyable when you have the company of two amazing people.  Sarah and Jeremy spent their afternoon with me among the rustling trees and flowing water of Jemison Park.   It was a picture perfect day and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to spend it.  Sarah and Jeremy will be married this July and we're so excited that we were chosen to share this special day with them.  Congratulations Sarah and Jeremy!  May your days ahead be as wonderful and spontaneous as a walk in the park on a Winter afternoon! 


Laura & Brooks Engagement: Arden Photography

Southern winters are characterized by rain, fog, and long nights. As photographers, this is not such a bad thing. Clearly exemplified by these absolutely beautiful and intimate engagement portraits we shot in Selma, Alabama. This is their family property which is obviously a wonderful setting for photos, but what make these favorites is the soft, quiet romance so visible between these two - aren't you just daydreaming of cuddling up on a rainy Sunday, coffee in hand, bundled up in a blanket with lake views now? Who better for this stylish couple to be represented by than Mariée Ami Wedding Planning? Maybe rainy winter days aren't the absolute worst after all? 


From Leisure Suits to Fedora Hats: Arden Photography

Michael Kimble has a smile that will make you weak in the knees. He was such a joy to work with during his photo shoot. Every time we look back at this shoot the Arden Photography team cannot help but smile. Along with Michael’s amazing wardrobe choices, he has a personality that can brighten anyones day. We are so thankful for the time spent with Michael and his mother, Sandy. We can’t wait to work with you again Michael!

Alexa's 1st Birthday!: Arden Photography

How important is it to capture your child’s 1st birthday? Well…without the photographs from my own first birthday I would have no idea that my mother wore those giant glasses of the 80’s or that I grabbed the candle flame on my first birthday cake. Now Alexa can look back and admire her adorable pink tutu, her pink smash cake and even her first birthday princess hat that she wasn’t too fond of at the time! Alexa’s mother, Jessica, did an amazing job at making this day special for everyone involved and Arden Photography is thankful to have been a part of Alexa’s special day!

Heather & Lily: Arden Photography

Arden Photography adores photographing children, so it was a great pleasure to have the opportunity to photograph little Lily. Lily is the daughter of Heather, a dear friend of Arden’s. Her baby blues and natural smile made it a breeze to capture amazing portraits of her and her mother. It is clear that she is a natural in front of the camera! We can not wait to watch Lily grow up and to catch many more memories with her and Heather!

Andrea's Head shots: Arden Photography

This past week Arden Photography had the amazing opportunity to photograph a dear friends daughter. Andrea is the daughter of our own Gia from Gia’s Cakes in Mountain Brook, Al. Andrea was in town, or should we say in the country, visiting her mother all the way from Europe! We were so excited to take Andrea’s first head shots and experience first hand her natural beauty. Thank you Andrea and Gia for the wonderful afternoon, you two were great company!
