Beth + Andrew . Birmingham Wedding

with 4 comments

Beth and Andrew were such a laid back, fun couple.  They had a private ceremony and a lovely reception at Aldridge Gardens where everyone had a great time and danced hard (even before dark!)  Without further ado, the photos!

(first look)

Congratulations, y’all!

Jessica + Jared | Birmingham Wedding

with one comment

I loved working with Jared and Jessica photographing their beautiful wedding at Samford University.  In spite of the day’s rain, they both effused joy and fun.  Their ceremony was one of the most Christ-centered and loving I’ve heard in a long time.  Here’s a quick preview.

They are the BEST photo jumpers.  Could not decide which one I like better!

I loved all the details at the reception: especially the delicious food, beautiful cake and ice cream cart!

Congratulations, y’all!

Growing With H

This is was my fourth session with Baby H – he’s one year old!  We went to an older, urban park and I had so much fun watching him explore.

Sweet J Family . Birmingham Children’s Photographer

Meet the J family.  They have the BEST tree house.

The last of Birmingham’s snow makes for sibling fun.

Sometimes Moms do let their four-year-olds jump on the bed!

I love little girls who love books!

And I love these matching pj shots… so sweet!

Maria + Jeremy | Birmingham Wedding Photographer

with 2 comments

Maria and Jeremy had one of the most joyful and fun weddings I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing.  More dancing pictures to come, for sure!

Maria and the girls got ready at her parent’s house.   Jessie from Chase Hair off Hwy 150 made a house call.

They got married at beautiful St. Elias, a 100-year-old church in Birmingham.

Maria and Jeremy got married in the early evening, and so they chose to see each other beforehand for pictures.

Their ceremony was beautiful, incorporating elements from both of their churches.

I will share more reception pictures later, but I loved the ululations that these women did.

Congratulations Jeremy and Maria!

Lee + Julia | Birmingham Wedding Photography

leave a comment »

Here’s a sneak peak of Lee and Julia’s big day.  They had BEAUTIFUL details, so they are sure to make an appearance here sometime soon!

That’s Greg Berry at Blonde Salon & Spa who did Julia’s hair, and one of her bridesmaids, who works in film, doing her make-up.  Greg is certainly one of the most beloved stylists in Birmingham.

I love the joy of this photo from those moments before the bridesmaids headed down the aisle.

A final exchange before the big walk down the aisle.

I love when churches have wedding registries.

Everyone had a great time at the reception!

Congratulations, Lee and Julia!
