Katie and Wes :: A Downtown Birmingham Engagement Session

Katie has always someone I have admired and looked up to. She is the perfect combination of southern charm, quick whit, and political awareness and knowledge that would blow the socks off anyone. It was hard to imagine a guy that could match with her effortless confidence and kindness. A Washington DC romance began, and I think Katie’s friends knew she had found quite the man. Wes is equally confident and kind and his love for Katie shows in his every action (these pictures are proof). Katie and Wes have a grown a passion and love for the Magic City and they wanted to make sure the city was the backdrop for these pictures. With lots of out of town guests and family, I think these pictures are the perfect way to introduce all the people they love to our little city:)I cannot wait for their wedding this Saturday- it will be one for the books for sure!

Diana and Joel :: An intimate chapel wedding

When Diana first messaged me describing her wedding, I was giddy thinking about capturing her and Joel’s day and getting to shoot at Tannehill State Park. Little did I know that Diana and Joel’s small description did not even come close to preparing me for this wedding that was unique, sweet, sentimental, and ADORABLE! Both Diana and Joel are two of the most thoughtful and courteous people and exude love and beauty (both inner and outer beauty). This intimate wedding with close family and friends coupled with the background of Tannehill makes for one unforgettable day. I was truly honored to capture their love story and I hope you enjoy these precious details as much as I do!

Mary & Darryl :: Art Deco Inspired Engagement

Mary is a good friend from college, and she contacted me asking if I would be up for Art-deco inspired engagement session at the Alabama Theater. I may or may not have done a little dance when I read that email:)I am so honored to be able to capture these two and their drop dead gorgeous-ness. Their great sense of style combined with the classic look and bright red velvets throughout the theater made for an amazing session. I can’t wait to be a part of Mary and Darryl’s big day in January where I’m sure they will amaze me and have me doing happy dances even more!

Elizabeth & Kevin :: Fall filled engagement session

To say I’m obsessed with the this engagement session is a little bit of an understatement. When I first met with Elizabeth, we discovered we had all kinds of mutual friends, and we both were surprised we hadn’t already met! I clicked and bonded even more with these two over of our mutual love for Alabama football and outdoor adventures.

Elizabeth and Kevin camp often together, so what better time for pictures than Botanical Gardens in the midst of fall? The mix of the beautiful, fall colors, the gorgeous, golden light and this cute couple made for some pretty perfect pictures. They have such a comfortable and relaxed way about them (just look at all the precious snuggles below), and I loved being able to capture this calm, easy love. Congrats Elizabeth and Kevin, and I cannot wait to be a part of your big day this January.


Ryan & Matt :: Married

I first met Ryan’s family when assisting with Kelly Cummings of Spindle Photography at wedding of Chad and Molly, Ryan’s sister. After already spending time with this family, I knew Ryan and Matt’s wedding would be just as fun and easy going. Matt’s family was no different. It amazed me how much both families already seemed to be so integrated. I know it’s typically to say about a wedding day, but there really was so. much. love. just look at the father/daughter and mother/son dance;)With the weather all over the place, we were lucky that it was one of the first, perfect, spring days. Don’t forget to check out the vendors at the bottom! HUGE thanks to Becca Paul for assisting:)Congrats Ryan & Matt!
