Daniella & Michael | Engagement | Lower Peach Tree, Alabama
March 17th, 2018 

Daniella and Michael chose to have their engagement shoot on Michael's family property in Lower Peach Tree, Alabama. Perhaps you have heard of the King-Criswell Plantation house in Uriah, Alabama? Well, Michael is a direct descendant of the King lineage. When we arrived at the property, Daniella began sharing with me a lot of the history that went into the land. It was a working plantation at one point in time, and held it's own community on the property, equipped with a post office & corner store which are still standing today.

I am not sure if words can describe the love and excitement I have for this precious family. I have not had the pleasure of knowing them for a long time, but the short time I have has been a blessing. They are the type of people that make you feel like you have been best friends for life and you can't help but want to spend more time with them... (read more)

Bailey & Nick | Downtown Fairhope Engagement Session | Fairhope, Alabama

Bailey & her mom, Cynthia, contacted me a few months ago looking for a photographer for her December wedding. We decided to meet for coffee and talk through details and get to know one another and there was that instant "click". Bailey and I joke that we are essentially the same person... (although her make up skill are WAY better than mine!) We connected over the mutual experience of being a "Preacher's Kid" (PK) and our love for 90's alt. music and Michael Buble. More importantly though, we discussed the wedding and her relationship with Nick. ...

Carlen and Andrew| A 2015 Engagement Re-Envisioned

It's almost been two years to the date since I first met Carlen & Andrew. I happened to meet someone from 5 Rivers today and it made me think back to this incredible engagement session on the Delta River. I met up with Carlen and Andrew early in the morning, we loaded up in two canoes, and we paddled out to these gorgeous fields of Lotus flowers. Carlen had just lost her father and the Lotus flowers became a symbol of hope- as they are one of the only species of flowers to be able to grow in the muck.

Samantha + Justin | Engaged | The Lange Farm

I need to start this by telling you how excited I am to finally being able to catch up with work and share this blog. I absolutely adore these photos and this couple and I know that you all will too! 

A while back, in April to be exact, I had the insane pleasure of putting together a styled bridal shoot and a re-envisioned wedding shoot with some good friends, family, and a team of phenomenal vendors at one of my favorite venues to date- The Lange Farms. Those shoots were both picked up for publications by some of the best publishers in our local area (in fact- the wedding couple's images still haven't been blogged here because they are currently being prepared for publication by Gulf Coast Bride and Southern Bride!) and because of those publications, Samantha saw my work and fell in love with it....

Brittany + Trey | New Orleans Botanical Garden| Engagement

You guys- I am going to go full-blown white girl on you. I seriously CAN'T EVEN with these! I am so thankful for clients who are willing to talk to me about the things that are important to them and allow me to take those visions and bring them to life. 

Brittany told me right off the bat that she knew that she wanted a garden scene for her engagement photos with her soon-to-be hubby, Trey. The only problem was, we have limited locations that offer that kind of backdrop locally and she really wanted something different. So- I suggested that we try venturing out and exploring a new place and she was on board!

I can't believe that it has already been an entire week since I was prepping for this incredible dream shoot at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom! I mean, what better place on Earth to celebrate your love for one another than the most magical place on Earth?! 

Bethany + Tommy have been coming to Disney together since pretty much their third date and he even pushed her around after she broke BOTH feet last year! They had talked about their hopes and dreams and even discussed how they saw their engagement and marriage and when it came time for Tommy to pop the question...

Kayla + Dent | Bay Side Engagement | Fairhope, Alabama

Kayla and Dent met me in Downtown Fairhope on Sunday afternoon and while we were walking to our first shoot location I asked them if they would share their story with me. It's so important to me that I invest in getting to know my clients on a personal level and what better way to start that process than by hearing their very own love story?!

Every once in a while I get clients who allow me to express my vision in whatever way I see fit. Carlen and Andrew met me on an early Tuesday morning and loaded up in two canoes and paddled out to a location off of the Delta River where there were American Lotus flowers in full blossom.
