Janelle and Wesley are Married {Birmingham Wedding Photographer)

Janelle and Wesley

{Vendor Love}

Ceremony and Reception Venue: Southwind Plantation

Florist: Studio Flower

Dress: Moonlight Designs

Catering: Jim and Nicks

Dessert: TCBY

Two of my favorite people! This wedding was full of so many personal touches and you could just see the love and happiness all around. Janelle and Wesley were married inside the Barn at Southwind Plantation in a last minute decision due to a constant drizzle of the rain. It was a gorgeous Ceremony backlit by beautiful light streaming from the barn door. They first met in a sales meeting in Dallas and continued to reconnect over the years and began a long distance relationship. Eventually Janelle moved from California to Alabama. Wesley proposed at their first home together by a trail of hearts that had the name of each city they met across the country. At the final heart was their current address and their back deck was covered in candles and lights. Wesley was on one knee with a ring. I’m such a romantic, so I love their story!! Their wedding was full of love, tears, and laughter!! Here are some of my favorites from their day.

Casey and Mark are getting Hitched! {Oak Island Engagement} Alabama Wedding Photographer

Casey and Mark

Weddings at Lay Lake {Oak Island}

Wilsonville, Alabama

Oak Island is such a breathtaking venue. It reminds of me of something out of the notebook with its antebellum house, willow trees, and oldschool boatdock. Casey and Mark definitely looked and dressed the part of a Nicholas Sparks Movie. It was such a joy to spend the afternoon working with them and taking them all over the property. We laughed alot, which is my favorite!! This precious pair is getting married at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and celebrating their reception at the Avon Theater. Here are some of my personal favorites out of many from our afternoon in Wilsonville, Alabama.

Pursuit 31 Alabama Styled Shoot!

It’s so great to be a part of an amazing group of creative women! Pursuit Community is a group for women in the creatives industry (photographers, wedding planners, florists, artists, writers , etc) who gather for the glory of God. Every year we collaborate for a styled shoot and this past year was epic. Becky’s red dress is a 1920’s vintage gown that I found at an estate sale. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot! PS: The glitter doughtnut cake was made by me!! I was super proud of it!

{Victoria and Adam’s Winter Engagement Session}

Victoria and Adam are getting Hitched!

Helena, Alabama

During my meeting with Victoria, I realized she actually went to highschool with my little brother. It was so great to get to know her and her fiance Adam as we roamed around Old Downtown Helena. This military inspired engagement shoot was a blast. I come from a military family so I loved that Adam wore his Navy uniform for their pictures. Adam and Victoria are such loving people and it was obvious how much they cared about eachother as I got to know them. Here are some of my favorite images from their session.

Brittney and Drake’s Tuscaloosa Engagement Session {Alabama Wedding Photographer}

Brittney and Drake

University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa

This adorable couple brought their sweet labs to their engagement session. We had so much fun walking the campus and taking pictures by the stadium, denny chimes, and the presidents mansion. Then we headed to the riverwalk and finished the session by a beautiful wooden bridge hidden off the beaten path. It was a perfect sunset on a fall day with these two. They are getting married next year at the gorgeous venue of Oak Island, also known as Weddings at Lay Lake. I can’t wait to see this couple getting married. It’s so obvious of how much they love they love eachother!! Here are some of my favorites from their session.
