Alabama Wedding

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?!

Michelle & Theron | Engagement Session Highlights | The Botanical Gardens, Birmingham, AL

Michelle shares my love for Boston and sweet pups :) We emailed in the wee hours of the morning getting to know one another as we planned her and Theron's engagement session. Michelle is a talented travel nurse who at the time had the joyous night shift. Like many of our brides, she is juggling a career, planning a move and managing a long distance relationship - all while planning a wedding. 

It is also for this reason Michelle knew to hire a capable wedding planner ... someone who could implement plans here in Birmingham while she focused on her other roles in Boston and beyond.  The M. Elizabeth Weddings and Events team has a wonderful day mapped out for these two on Saturday. We cannot wait to see all the details! You know what I hear most from brides post wedding?? We should have hired a planner ;) 

I hope you enjoy this little recap of Michelle and Theron's engagement session at the lovely Botanical Gardens and Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook, AL :)
