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. ...
It's been quite a long time since I had the pleasure of documenting milestones like a couple's first pregnancy. I was definitely a bit rusty at some things but had so much fun stepping out of my comfort zone again! Jennifer is a fellow photographer (Jennifer Schiller Photography) and has been in the Mobile area for a few years now. In fact, I think we both moved here around the same time! She and her husband, Ben, are the cutest and were so kind to let me hang out with them for an afternoon.
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?!
Deeanna + Marc | New Years Eve Wedding | The Venue, Downtown Fairhope, Alabama
Deeanna + Marc are natives to the Loxley area (Marc is a Firefighter in Foley) and chose to have an incredibly beautiful wedding celebration on New Year’s Eve. Deeanna looked absolutely amazing in her open back beaded dress and long veil from Bliss Bridal.
...I love when I get to be a part of a family's new and growing lives. When it was time to start planning her 6 month session we originally opted to do the shoot at their family home on Dauphin Island. However, sweet miss Lilly was not quite feeling up to photos that day so we rescheduled and met at the Fairhope Pier a few weeks later...
I absolutely love how things just seem to fall into place-even if it is right at the last minute!
This weekend I had gone to the floral warehouse to get a few things for some personal needs. However I ended up with some extra florals that weren't going to be used so I threw them into a bouquet and blasted facebook for someone to wear a pretty dress and model them. I had a few inquiries and I wish I could have used everyone-but- one in particular stood out.
