There is something about old cities that is so intriguing.  In my mind, it's kind of like I want to be an explorer who just happens to discover this old piece of the city that no one knows about, but it's totally not like that.  So we just settle for the trolley tour which is lame, I know!  Savannah is definitely a place to explore, especially with its rich history dating back to the 1700's.  But we weren't just there to explore and site see.  

Out trip to Savannah was to photograph Kimberly and JJ's wedding.  When the two of them were dating JJ felt it was time to ask that  special question.  So on a planned trip to Savannah, he decided to ask Kimberly to be his wife.  What a perfect place.  As the location scouting began they found a quaint little park (one of 22) within the city called Washington Square, which was a perfect location.  As the afternoon sun glowed around the area, the greens of spring and the colors of the surrounding houses sprang to life.  Thank you to Kimberly and JJ for allowing us to join them on their wedding day.  

 

PS. keep a look out for JJ's Harlem Shake Video!

I recently had the opportunity to do a session with the talented musician Sid Phelps.  Sid has been playing the Alabama area for the past couple of years and is really starting to make a name for himself.  Definitely check out his site and listen to some of his work or if he is live where you are, go to the show.

Susanna+Hunter {Auburn, AL Wedding Photographer}

In the past week I've shared a couple of images from the Camp's wedding, but I wanted to go ahead and reveal the full post.  As a photographer, one of the aspects I love about weddings is the venues that we get to shoot in.  When Susanna told me that their reception venue was the new Auburn Arena and that they were going to be the first wedding couple I knew that there were going to be couples who would die to be the first.  I will say that it was great to be able to walk in there and be in awe of it.  The staff was amazing and if you are interested in it definitely give them a call and get it set up, you will not be disappointed.

Anyway, I want to say a big thanks to Susanna and Hunter, their families and their friends.  We had such an amazing time with y'all and I think the pictures show.

Susanna {Bridal Session} Auburn Wedding Photographer

One of things that we enjoy is getting the chance to work with our clients before hand. Why? Well, we get to see how awesome you are going to be! :) Plus it gives you the opportunity to see how things roll, and to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I think some of my most fun times shooting have been with my couples during there sessions, plenty of time to laugh at how much of a nerd I am. Susanna's session was no different, her mom accompanied us and we all had fun on this hot day!


Haley+Adam {Birmingham, AL Wedding Photography}

What is there to do in a small college town?  Not much but its apparently a great place to meet your future spouse!  It worked for Meg and I and it worked for Haley and Adam as well.  I can remember making a trip to Birmingham to meet this couple who had been referred to us (I love referrals) and thinking I wonder what they are going to be like and then I got that nervous feeling like I do before I talk to any couples that contact us(don't ask me why).  So, sitting in Panera Bread, butterflys buttering, and BA yelling from his stroller, in walks Haley and Adam and I was sure we were about to scare them off.  After seconds of meeting them, I knew we would fall in love with them and have!  Picking up the phone and calling Haley is like picking up the phone and talking to an old friend.  Adam, thanks for being such an awesome and patient guy even through the stifling heat.  Here's a big THANK YOU to you guys!  We hope you enjoy this preview and we look so forward to keeping up with you!

PS....If you are a bride to be in the Birmingham area and looking for a great venue and a great coordinator, you need to check out B&A Warehouse and give Haley a call.  Besides being our bride,  she is an event coordinator there, so give her a shout!
