Eugene & Ashley | Birmingham Engagement

As we’re headed to Eugene and Ashley’s wedding this weekend, we thought it the perfect opportunity to share this incredible couple and their Birmingham engagement session. Eugene is a long-time friend of ours and we know he’s found his other half in Ashley. They met originally in college at Alabama A&M, but didn’t start dating until later. Birmingham was definitely a hub for them where they would re-connect occasionally, and so they felt it was the perfect scenery for their engagement pictures, and we couldn’t agree more! To read their engagement and proposal story, you really get a sense of …

Danielle & Christian | Gadsden Wedding

Danielle and Christian’s wedding was one of those weddings that you almost can’t even describe to anyone. The atmosphere, the love, the looks, the dancing…words don’t really do any of it justice. We were so thrilled that we were able to share in such a beautiful day, rain and all! Danielle and Christian were married in Gadsden, Alabama at The Carriage House. It was such a quaint and beautiful place, with little gems around every corner. Our favorite was the cobblestone streets and vintage feel throughout. The day was rainy, but the two pushed through and had the outdoor wedding they wanted …

Anna | 2016 Birmingham Senior

Anna is a graduating senior of Crossroads Christian in Moody, Alabama. We have been so honored and thrilled to get to know her better during the course of her session and prepping beforehand. She was up for anything and was such a good sport about walking around downtown Birmingham and trying different outfits. What we see the most in Anna, we feel like you can see in these pictures too, which is joy. We were honored to share in that light and think the images really showcase who Anna really is. We fell in love with Anna during her session, and …

Dana & Randy | Birmingham Wedding

Dana and Randy’s Birmingham wedding was one for the books! The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony, and the sun set just right over the city skyline from inside their reception. They were married at the historic Rucker Place in  downtown Birmingham, which is a hidden gem in the city. You almost forget that 5-points is steps away when you’re dancing in the glass ballroom. That old world charm of the venue combined with all the details Dana and Randy put into their day made for the ideal wedding! They chose a jewel tone purple for their colors and …

Danielle & Christian – Birmingham Engagement

As we get ready for Danielle and Christian’s wedding day, we are reminiscing about their engagement session from a few weeks ago! We could not get over just how adorable they were (and are). Danielle wanted to make sure we had a red door in there somewhere, because she loves them, and they ended up being some of our favorites! We also made sure to get some coffee and enjoy the downtown scenery since they love getting coffee together all the time. You’ll see some Urban Standard in here as our backdrop! Then we finished up on the roof top …
