We're so excited for warm weather and blue skies! It's officially Spring and we couldn't think of a better way to start the new season than taking a stroll through our beautiful city on a picture perfect afternoon. Heidi and Joel will be married in few weeks at Windwood Equestrian but they chose the city scape for their engagement portraits. From Morris Avenue to the amazing view underneath Vulcan, this sweet couple could not have chosen a better day! We're so in love with their photos and we couldn't wait to share a few with you. Congratulations to Heidi and Joel, we're counting down the days until April 25th!
The city of Birmingham has often been described as a diamond in the rough. From it's historical landmarks, amazing restaurants and southern hospitality; it's one of those places that will never rid itself of the charm and appeal that keeps people coming back. I love it when our couples use the city as a backdrop for their engagement photos. Adrienne and William will be married this summer and we were so excited to spend the afternoon with them on Morris Avenue. This street, aligned with it's brick roads, is a favorite of visitors and residents of the city. We had such an amazing day with Adrienne and William and we couldn't be more pleased with their photos. Here are a few of our favorites!
You will be seeing more of this adorable couple soon, as they are one of the THREE (!) weddings we are shooting tomorrow! Very excited to be part of this big day for Stephanie and Eric
Night-time in downtown Birmingham means you've never seen a city more brilliantly lit up. Bridges, ballparks, fountains all bright with vibrant splashes of colors and cobbled streets glowing with soft lamps. Barrow and Michael simply trusted us when we planned for them a night-time engagement session in downtown Birmingham, promising them a beautiful array of bright, colorful, and romantic images. I don't think we disappointed. I am so in love with these city images: the light-installment bridges with so many colors filling the scene turning it into a wonderland of sorts, the city-proud Birmingham sign in the background leaves no room for question, and especially the black and white images that feel so soft and romantic. There is nothing better than a couple that just trusts your creative intuition, and Barrow and Michael did not fail! If this is any indication of what their wedding will be like, we could not be more excited!
We loved shooting Brittany and Cory's engagement photos back in August! Can't believe it's already October and they are getting married this Saturday! Looking forward to more fun times out of this cute family! More photos to come.
Brittney and Cory came ready for their engagement photos exuding that "Sweet Home Alabama" quality. Decked out in cowboy boots and American colors, she was the epitome of Southern Belle, and he, the proud example of "good ole boy." Her daughter came with us, and gave us a never-ending supply of sassiness and humor, and kept everyone laughing throughout the shoot! We explored Railroad Park and Morris Avenue seeking out trains and tracks - all aboard the love train!
Engagement portraits have become one of my favorite sessions to photograph. It gives the couple a practice session before the wedding day. You really get a opportunity to witness the couple's true personality. I had such an amazing time with Cecil and Hobie! They were so fun loving and full of energy. The session took place at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and we even got an opportunity to shoot on Morris Avenue. Here are a few of my favorite photos!
