Bailey & Sterling - Wedding

We're all a little weird, and life's a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

Katherine & Will - Wedding

There is nothing more classically southern than a beautiful church ceremony that shows off the bride's impeccable taste and style followed by an incredible reception filled with great music and killer dance moves! Katherine & Will's wedding day was filled to the brim with love, joy, style and personality. I adored Katherine's shoes and the amazing bright and colorful florals that she chose! In a summer full of muted tones and shades of cream and pink, the bright colors not only reflected Katherine's personality, they were a refreshing pop of happy! Ladies, never be afraid to show off your amazing personalities! Don't let the all the same old pinterest ideas that pop up on your feed sway your style, BE BOLD AND BE YOU!  Katherine, you have always been the queen of being yourself and that is what I love so much about you! 

Oh and did I mention, my sweet Spike has been friends with Katherine since childhood (and friends with Will since college)!  What an amazing honor it was to share this day with these friends in such a special way!

Nicole & Garrett - Wedding

The first time I met Nicole we instantly clicked. She was one of those people that even though we had never met before we sat and chatted for several hours like old firends. The thing is, I am pretty sure she is like that with everyone, which makes her even more awesome! Nicole and Garrett's wedding day was just as genuine and full of friendship and joy as I would have expected. These two know how to throw a celebration and stay true to who they are! I mean, who else has their first look in the giraffe feeding pin!?! So awesome! 

This was one of those moments where I was so in awe I had to remind myself that I was supposed to be taking photos!

Brittney & Jason - Engagement

Brittney & Jason... where to begin with these two. Brittney is gorgeous inside and out and has such a beautifully gentle love for Jason, it is evident in the sweetest smile and the most distinguishably loving way she looks at him. Jason is extremely creative and loves nature, he sees Brittney's beauty and loves her so deeply for everything that she is and more. 

When talking with these two about photos and their vision for their wedding, they were up for anything as long as they had fun together. Every idea I threw at them was exciting to them, which obviously got me excited! They knew they wanted to be in nature for part of their engagement session but other than that they were on board for anything. So we went on an adventure. Color and light were my goals because I knew how much Jason loves art. Sadly, we live in Alabama where the weather is strange and the leaves don't change color even though it is Fall. Lucky for us though, the amazing Dia de Los Muertos event was being set up downtown and we were able to go take some awesome and colorful images at the event site! We of course ended the session in nature where these two were so genuinely comfortable. 

This was one of those sessions that when it ended I immediately wanted to call everyone I knew and tell them about it. The couple, the setting, the light and weather were all just right and it helped amplify the amazing connection that Brittney & Jason have.
