Emily & Evan | Springhouse, Alexander City, AL Wedding

Evan called me in a slight panic. He had carefully curated every detail for his proposal to Emily aside from securing a photographer. I agreed to capture the engagement purely based on his enthusiasm and eager insistence over the phone. There was no doubt from that first conversation with Evan that he was smitten with sweet Emily. Still, seeing that love take shape during the proposal and wedding day was nothing short of epic. 

I practically begged these two to let me capture the wedding after that session. Fortunately, Evan and Emily were equally enthusiastic to take us on as well ;) 

Favorites of the Day:

Favorite Detail: Evan proposed to Emily with his late mother's pear shaped diamond. It was both exquisite and timeless.  I adore the detail shot of this ring. 

Favorite Moment: At the kiss, two planes flew over to commemorate the memory of Evan's late parents. It was a beautiful moment honoring their memory and Evan and Emily's new union. 

Favorite Image: OH this is a hard one. The film shots on this wedding day were pure magic ... the light and overall feel was the perfect setup. Ultimately, I am in love with the dancing shot where Evan is literally sweeping Emily off her feet in a mad, romantic twirl. Look below ... isn't it dreamy?!

Anna Claire & Mike | The Club, Birmingham, AL | Wedding Day Highlights

We were in Rosemary Beach celebrating our thirteenth wedding anniversary when Anna Claire's momma called. Anna Claire had been a bridesmaid in one of our recent weddings, and we were so honored to receive the recommendation. I knew immediately that this sweet family would be the perfect for for us! 

Anna Claire and Mike proved to be a dream to work with and much more. Their outer beauty is equally matched by their sincere love and care for those around them. The Club is a personal favorite in Birmingham ... I love the iconic presence of this venue! Patrick and I recently joined in hopes that our very own Evie Beth will say "I do" here MANY years from now (she's three ;) 

As I take time to nurture the blog and catch up on a multitude of weddings and sessions, Anna Claire and Mike's big day was a clear obvious start. Meet the Merks!
