“There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.”

-Jane Austen

When Rachel and Adam were in front of our cameras, it was nothing but magic!
We met with Rachel for coffee and absolutely fell in love with her personality! She told us how she was an elementary school teacher and that Adam was in school working on becoming a dentist. While we were discussing engagement ideas she mentioned how much she loved Christmas. We immediately lit up because we had the perfect idea for them! We wanted to take them to the first annual Railroad Park Outdoor Ice Rink (with the appropriate hashtag #brrrmingham).

We started their session in the classic setting of Linn Park, City Hall and caught the last bit of sun on the rooftop before heading down to Railroad Park for the rink.

Adam was a little nervous to have us actually photograph him skating (he had never shown Rachel his skating skills…ha). But they both did amazing and we laughed at all of the Southerners trying their best on the ice.

We cannot wait to celebrate their summer wedding at Park Crest Event Facility  and we hope you enjoy scrolling through their session as much as we enjoyed shooting it!

I love being yours and knowing you are mine.

Chris and Emily met on their first date! Not many people can survive a blind date, but these two hit it off! This happy couple tied the knot at Holy Infant of Prague Catholic Church and it was absolutely stunning!

Chris and Emily adore their families and they wanted their wedding day to bring both sides closely together. Emily brought the most beautiful antiques passed down from generations before her. As Emily got ready for her wedding day, she was surrounded by her bridesmaids and close family members. The room was filled with excitement as her mother zipped up the back of her dress. She looked absolutely radiant.

Chris and Emily decided to cherish their day at Chris’ Family property before the ceremony. Chris got ready in his grandmother’s home and we loved watching his mother’s reaction when she first saw him as a groom.

Emily and Chris decided to share a moment alone together before their wedding ceremony. As Emily walked out to the field where her groom was standing, she caught her breath in excitement. As Chris turned to see his bride, a huge smile lit up his face. It was so sweet! Chris wanted to surprise Emily when he first saw her. Chris is a huge Harry Potter fan and had recently bought Harry’s wand. Since it was their wedding day, Chris thought it was fitting to give Emily Jenny Weasley’s wand! How cute!

Their wedding ceremony was beautiful! If you have ever witnessed a Catholic wedding, you know how lovely they can be. As Emily walked down the aisle to meet her groom, happy tears flowed down her face. What a great moment! Close friends and family read scripture over the couple and prayed for their new journey together. Once they were announced as husband and wife, their guests joined in on the celebration with lots of cheering!

“I’ve never had a moment’s doubt.
I love you.
I believe in you completely.
You are my dearest one.
My reason for life.” 

– Ian McEwan

You’re in college and you have an hour to spend. What do you do? Well if you’re like any college student, you find the closest cup of coffee you can. Eli was standing in line for his cup of joe on campus at UAB. He ordered his usual drink and waited for it to be made. Now, if you’re familiar with the UAB Starbucks, you know you will be waiting alongside several other people in a small area. It’s inevitable that you’ll be standing very closely to strangers, so most people just stare at their phones…trying to avoid eye contact. However, on this day, Eli caught sight of a girl. He saw Tiffany for the first time and made it a point to talk to her. Eli thought that this day was going to be like every other day. He never thought it would be the day he met his wife.

Tiffany and Eli are fun-loving and sweet. The way Eli looks at Tiffany made our hearts melt during their engagement session. Tiffany grew up in a small town and wanted to find a place that featured the outdoors and a cute main street area. Springville, AL was the perfect location! The fall backdrop made for gorgeous colors throughout every photo. We are so excited for their wedding in the summer! Congratulations to you both!

“For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.” – Stephanie Perkins

We hit it off IMMEDIATELY when we met Hannah and Matt for dinner one evening. We just loved seeing their personalities and the way they practically finished each other sentences. They told us they were high school sweethearts (so sweet) and knew over the years of dating that they were truly meant to be together.

We asked Hannah how he proposed and she said:
“It was Christmas Day..after seeing a flood of couples get engaged over the previous few days, I was feeling quite defeated and frustrated with Matt. Following our traditional Christmas dinner and present opening, Matt said he had one more surprise for me. I sat there and talked with his while family and my mom as he disappeared into another room. As he entered back in, he had his hands behind his back. Honestly, I was thinking, “typical men..never takes the time to wrap a gift.” He walked over to me and proceed to get on one knee and say, “Hannah Rae Taylor” At this point he has tears streaming down his face and I was right behind him in mine! He apparently said, “Will you marry me?” but I was so excited and shocked that I didn’t even hear him! Of course I said yes!”

On the day of their engagement, they told us “just tell us if we look awkward”… um, y’all, they were most DEF not awkward. In fact, quite the opposite. The afternoon was fully of non-stop smiling and laughing. They are #relationshipgoals!  We knew they wanted some “Gatsby-style” and “1920s” architecture, and downtown Birmingham fit this description perfectly. We cannot wait to celebrate them with their closest friends and family at Southside Baptist Church and The Florentine this January!!

Erin looked absolutely stunning in her delicate, lace gown and stunning veil. She was all smiles when her mother helped her get ready. When she turned to look at herself in the mirror, we knew she was going to take Kyle’s breath away. The reaction her father had in first seeing her as a bride just made our hearts cry! The way he looked at Erin made us melt!

Kyle and Erin shared an intimate first look in the chapel at Children’s Harbor. Their smiles (and evident adoration for one another) were truly inspiring. The way that Kyle looked at his bride was a breath of fresh air! They immediately embraced and held each other for a little while. Erin’s face just lit up when she was in his arms.

The ceremony was beautiful in the chapel. Close friends and family came from all over to celebrate and the intimate ceremony location set a lovely atmosphere. Kyle couldn’t keep his eyes off of Erin throughout the entire ceremony. It was the SWEETEST!

After their ceremony, the newly weds were swept away on a sailboat and circled the area a few times. Talk about a grand exit/entrance! Once they arrived at their reception, Kyle and Erin danced their first dance together as husband and wife. The rest of the night carried on with laughter and love.

Congratulations  Mr. and Mrs. Scarbrough; we wish you the utmost happiness and joy in your marriage!

When we asked Konnor & Lauren to describe their relationship in one word, they replied with, “Devoted.” What a beautiful word!

The proposal:

Konnor had moved to Nashville the first weekend in June (which happened to be right before their six year anniversary). Lauren and Konnor’s mom has driven up to meet him at his new home to help him decorate. They spent the day hanging photos and planned to celebrate their anniversary together later that evening. Lauren admits that she was totally unsuspecting of what the evening actually entailed.

Konnor had made a reservation at a restaurant with the Opryland Hotel for dinner. The restaurant was styled to look as if it were an antebellum home that overlooked a small river in the hotel. Lauren loved everything about the dinner and was impressed with Konnor’s choice of location. On the way back to their car, Konnor pulled out another surprise! He had tickets to the Grand Ole Opry and wanted to take Lauren to a show. Neither of them had been to the Grand Ole Opry and were amazed! Lauren for sure thought this might have been the best date they ever had. They night wasn’t quite over yet though.

“ We went back to his apartment and I suspected that we would sit with his mom and talk about the great night we had, but I was wrong! He stopped me as we walked in the door and said that he had one more gift. He took me out onto his balcony and sat across from me. He had a beautiful leather bound journal in his hand and he said that he wanted me to read what he had wrote. Konnor told me to take my time and not skip over anything.

He went back inside so that I could read and said that he was going to make us some coffee. I sat on the balcony reading the most beautiful love letter from Konnor. He poured his heart out over several pages and I spent a great deal of time crying over it. I reached the last two pages of his letter and he explained that me coming to Nashville that weekend was not for the purpose of helping him to move in and that the journal was not actually his gift to me. The journal was actually from my Mom. She knows how much I love leather bound journals and she bought me one and was saving it for a special occasion. The last page of the letter said “Will you Marry Me? Come back inside if yes.”

So of course I went back inside! I will never forget the look of pure love and joy on his face. It was the sweetest moment. He actually had my parents hiding out in his apartment too, so my mom got to take pictures and they got to be there to share this special moment. His proposal was everything I dreamed it would be and so much more.”

Congratulations, Konnor & Lauren! We can’t wait for your beautiful wedding!

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” – 1 John 4:12

Kathryn and Chris are some of the most genuine and beautiful souls we have had the opportunity to photograph. We were blown away by all of the joy and excitement they shared as they started their lives together as Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  Their entire day wasn’t about the venue or the cake or even the dress. No, their wedding day was about the celebration of two incredible people loving one another unconditionally as Christ loves us.

As we arrived we saw Kathryn’s mother’s friends helping put together flower arrangements and that alone showed us how much others care about this couple as much as we do. Kathryn’s mother was so giddy when she saw us and came up to hug our necks to just thank us for everything that we were about to do that day.  I (Julie) told Kathryn and Chris that I was so excited I got to celebrate my 28th birthday on THEIR wedding day! Kathryn told me “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” at least 50 times (which I replied with “HAPPY WEDDING DAY!”) and Chris and his groomsmen made it a point to sing happy birthday to me when I arrived. When we say this couple is truly awesome, humble and giving…we mean it.

When we arrived to the church Kathryn and Chris told us they were going to give one another Bibles with a letter inside before their first look.

Laura says:
“This moment right here got me good. There are very few moments while photographing a wedding that catch me off guard, but I will never forget this one. I love the way God speaks directly to me through the lives of others.  The bride and groom had given bibles to one another as a gift. When the groom opened his bible, he sobbed. Shortly after gaining his composure, he explained his overwhelming emotion. Before he met his bride, he had almost given up hope in finding the “one”. He prayed and prayed for the Lord to send her one day, but his patience was wavering. That same week, his small group planned an outing to go to a baseball game. He met a beautiful girl at that game…and now she is his wife.
After telling me the story of how they met, he looked directly at me and said, “I know you see a lot of weddings, but…going to that baseball game was the best decision I ever made. And when you find that person…”.
And that’s where I began to cry. I knew exactly what he meant.
God spoke directly to me in that moment. I saw Him work in the life of that groom and bless him immensely. And I saw the moment when that same groom bowed his head and sobbed in thankfulness.”

And of course the first look had us all sobbing and happy that this day has finally arrived for them.
They are ceremony was of course nothing short of beautiful and God centered. When their minister said you may now kiss your bride, Chris planted one tremendous kiss on Kathryn, then sweetly kiss her forehead! Then they continued to celebrate down the aisle and out the church doors!

Their reception was at the Barn at Shady Lane, where they danced and danced and celebrated the Crimson Tide then …danced some more! There was even a few tambourine solos by the guest and it fit perfectly with their live band!! And Chris and his groomsmen all sang along with the band for “Sweet Home Alabama”.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith capped their perfect wedding day with a sparkler send off and rode away in wedding bliss in a classic car!
We cannot express enough how thankful we are that you guys chose us to witness such a beautiful union and we pray God continues to bless your relationship and encourage others as you have done for us.

When we first met Mary at a small coffee shop in downtown Birmingham, she told us that she always knew that she and Kevin would spend the rest of their lives together. Whatever new adventure they journeyed upon, Kevin & Mary have always been side by side since they first started dating. And we LOVE their story.

Kevin & Mary usually tell people they met through mutual friends. The real story: On Halloween weekend of 2005, Mary was at an establishment when she heard Kevin exclaim loudly, “SHE’S FINE.” Mary looked back at Kevin who was staring at her. With a look of disapproval, Mary turned and said nothing to him. Immediately afterwards, Kevin told his friend sitting next to him that he would end up dating Mary someday. OH THE IRONY.

Two years pass, and Mary sees Kevin out one night while celebrating a friend’s birthday. Mary did not recognize him because previously, Kevin had long hair and a beard. Mary eventually asked for Kevin’s (who had short hair, clean shaven face) phone number through a mutual friend. By the second or third date, Mary realized Kevin was the same person who offended her (all the while Kevin knew). By then, it was too late. Mary and Kevin will be celebrating nine years together before they wed on November 12.

The Proposal:

In 2015, Kevin and Mary lived outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kevin, Mary, and their Great Dane, Peanut, went for a walk on a local trail. Along the trail was the ruins of a grist mill.  Kevin led Mary and Peanut in the ruins and asked Mary to look at a message written on the wall. It said, “Will you marry me?” Mary turned around to look at Kevin who was on one knee with the engagement ring.

Commence the chills!

” It was a million tiny little things that,
when you added them all up,
they meant we were supposed to be together.”

– Sleepless in Seattle

Tyler & Erin! WE LOVE THEM!! When we met Erin at Barnes & Nobles one evening, we knew she was going to be a keeper! We know exactly why Tyler is so captivated by her!

Tyler and Erin are getting married next fall at Old Car Heaven and we are beyond excited! This beautiful couple wanted to have the bright, warm colors of the fall to compliment their engagement session. Erin loves this time of year, and of course, the day was perfect!! The energy between these two is incredible to witness. Their fun and sweet personalities make you want to hang out with them ALLL the time! We can’t wait for their wedding and all the ridiculously fun/gorgeous things they have planned!
