Beth & Brian : Pirates Cove Engagements : Daphne AL Wedding Photographer

Beth and I meshed so well from our first meeting, so I was thrilled when they decided to hire me as their photographer. I sometimes hear from clients that they are “not photogenic”, and this is simply not true of most people who say that. Beth and Brian were rockin their engagement session with lots of laughter and love. They also brought along their adorable pooch, Watson, who is quite photogenic as well.

We shot their session at Pirates Cove, one of their regular joints, and it provided some great scenery for photos. It’s a happening place for people to come up on their boats, grab a cold one or some food while enjoying the great outdoors. It’s also pet-friendly, so I might have to venture there again with my pup so he can get his paws in the sand. I definitely cannot wait to shoot their wedding in June, I’m sure there is much more silliness and laughter to be had with these two. Here are some of my favs from their session. Enjoy!

Kristi : Bragg-Mitchell Bridal Session : Mobile AL Wedding Photographer

Kristi is probably without a doubt, the most enthusiastic bride I’ve ever worked with. I could tell from my initial meeting with her that she was looking forward to her time as a bride. I love knowing that my work means as much to my clients as it does to me, and that I’m documenting memories that will be appreciated.

IMG_1298
We shot Kristi’s session at the lovely Bragg-Mitchell Mansion in Mobile. She finally got to marry her man last month, and I was happy to document the day for them. For now, enjoy some of my favorites from Kristi’s bridal session.

RedTree Albums #2 : Daphne AL Wedding Photographer

Once again, I’m blown away by the quality of RedTree Albums. This is my 2nd sample and I decided to also order a mini-album so clients could see what fantastic gifts they make for parents or grandparents. They are an exact replication of the larger album, without the letter embossing.

In this digital age, it is so important to get your pictures printed. Albums are a great way to archive your wedding day and they serve as an heirloom that can be cherished and passed down to future generations.

Kate & Wayne : Engagement Session : Daphne AL Wedding Photographer

Kate & Wayne were childhood sweethearts but life took them in different directions for a while. A couple years ago, they came across one another again and the fire was rekindled.

They are so sweet and affectionate with one another. The way Kate just melts into Wayne’s arms, you can see that she is at home there. We shot their session in Fairhope, which provides so many diverse looks for photos. I could not be happier to shoot their beach wedding tomorrow!! I know it will be a great day!

Hillary & Blake : Fort Conde Inn Wedding Mobile AL

These two are probably the kindest souls I’ve ever met. They are just so warm and so caring. Their winter wedding took place at Fort Conde Inn in Downtown Mobile. This was my 2nd wedding at this venue, and I really do love it. Despite being a slightly gloomy day, we didn’t have any rain, thank the Lord!

IMG_7795

Surrounded by about 50 or so of their closest family and friends, it was a small and intimate wedding, which I secretly love! It gives me a chance to relax and chat with guests. Hillary & Blake are sure to have many years filled with love, respect and happiness. I could not have been happier they hired me to be their photographer and wish them so many rich blessings as they travel life together as husband and wife!

I love getting this shot at weddings if possible…the groom feeling and twisting his ring. Since most guys don’t wear jewelry, specifically rings, they aren’t used to it being there, but now it’s there to stay, and Blake almost didn’t get his off so I could do some ring detail shots so it’s really not going anywhere LOL
