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 …

Dana & Randy | Birmingham Engagement

Dana and Randy are getting married this weekend, so we thought it was a great time to share some of their engagement pictures. Dana knew she wanted to capture some pretty light, so we had their session at sunrise on a Saturday in downtown Birmingham. There is just something magical about early morning in the summer, the cool breeze, and a sunrise from the top of a building. We couldn’t have asked for better weather to showcase these two. As we continued the session downtown, you could really just see the unspoken love between Dana and Randy. The session was filled with sweet …

Faye & Corbin | Birmingham Engagement

Today we’re sharing a recent Birmingham engagement session of Faye & Corbin with you! Faye just recently graduated from Cumberland Law School, so she and Corbin felt it was the perfect time for them to start their lives together. They took a break from working and Bar prep to join us for their engagement photos at Moss Rock Preserve. We started the day very early to try and beat the heat, and the sun was more than perfect for us (which was great because we had canceled for rain a couple times). Each corner had it’s own unique element that we just loved shooting …

Andrew | Birmingham Senior 2015

Andrew is a class of 2015 Birmingham senior at Chelsea High School and is eager to get started at Auburn in the fall. We are days away from his graduation, so there is no better time to show off Andrew and reveal some of his hidden model talents. Andrew had such a natural smile and was easy in front of the camera. He was such a natural, we were wondering if he had done it before!  He also has such an easy-going spirit that he contrasts the bustling of the city and creates a unique style in his photos. His girlfriend, Elyse, also joined …

The Ydels | Birmingham Family Portraits

As we approach Christmas day, we thought we would share a recent Birmingham family portrait session that is holiday card ready! The Ydel sisters are one of our recurring families each Christmas season, and they get cuter and cuter each year. These two were so loving to each other and had such a fun time with each photo. You can see their unique interactions and funny antics within each photo. We decided to take advantage of the beautiful, fresh garland and wreaths throughout the house, which made for perfect holiday images. The girls were also able to show us their new play room, …

Averley | Birmingham Newborn

Today we want to debut the sweet and enchanting Birmingham newborn, Averley! We were recently honored with the task of photographing this precious baby, and could not have been more overwhelmed with the cuteness! Newborns aren’t our normal routine, but we had so much fun seeing all of Averley’s facial expressions and movements. We really felt like we could spend the entire day with her! We took advantage of her newborn session being close to Christmas, and fit in some holiday images as well for mom to send to family. We couldn’t have asked for a better “studio” either, because the house …

The Reisers | Birmingham Family Portraits

We’re so excited to show off the lovely Reiser family today! We had such a blast exploring downtown during their session and finding interesting places for their portraits. They all had such a great spirit and loved seeing a different side of the city. The girls are all in different stages of their lives, including high school, college, and medical school applications. It was so great to see the relationship between them, though, and how they interact. It’s wonderful to see a family bond like that. The whole family was just so easy to work with and were joyful in every …

The Mundys | Birmingham Family Portraits

Today we are excited to feature the Mundys and their holiday Birmingham family portraits. They were really hoping for something that just felt very “Birmingham” so we explored a few downtown spots for inspiration. We were excited to shoot by the John’s City Diner mural (which also happens to have some great chicken and waffles), and some local streets and staircases. Our locations really just aided the cuteness of the family, and allowed their personalities to steal the show. The best part of this session was that we were able to capture both the goofy and sweet sides of the whole family. The …

The Files | Birmingham Family Portraits

We recently had the privilege of photographing the Files family for their holiday cards and to celebrate their daughter’s 18 months. You’ve probably seen Catherine around the website a lot. We’ve been honored to document most of her milestones since she was born, and this session pulled it full circle for us. We just adore Catherine’s beautiful red hair and adventurous personality. Including the whole family just made it more beautiful to photograph. Take a look at the Files’ Birmingham family portraits, and let us know if you would like some holiday photos as well!
