Christy & Tyler | Engaged

Christy & Tyler Springhill Mobile Alabama Engaged

I knew the moment that I met Christy (over coffee of course) & we started talking about our boys that we'd have so much fun together.

Christy is finishing up her degree in Physical Therapy & Tyler is working on his PhD in cancer research, both at the University of South Alabama. She grew up in Louisiana & completed her undergrad at LSU, while he chose one of her rival schools in Alabama - ahem, Roll Tide! Which actually brings us to how they met! These two met at a tailgate party for the LSU/Bama game a few years ago & agreed to look beyond each other's flaws. ;) Tyler's best advice to surviving football season in a house divided? Watch the game separately.

We met for their engagement session at the Avenue of Oaks on Springhill College's campus. And they brought their pup, Scout, along too! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session as you & I both eagerly await their spring wedding.

Fun fact: Christy & Tyler share their wedding date with one of Britain's royal couples, Meghan Markle & Prince Harry. May 19th, 2018 will certainly be one for the books & I cannot wait!

The Johns | March 25th, 2017

On Saturday, March 25th, Olivia & Hunter became Mr. & Mrs. Johns. Their closet friends & family gathered as witnesses to the union & stayed to celebrate with cake & dancing.

Tuscaloosa has a special place in my heart, so I was looking forward to visiting the sweet college town to photograph their wedding since she booked me last year!

Since they met while attending the University of Alabama (Roll Tide), they decided to get married on campus at Smith Hall. Despite the 80% chance of severe weather on their wedding day, we worked with the occasional break in the rain clouds & utilized the grand staircase within the venue. 

Normally the guys get a bad wrap on wedding days but confession their portrait time is often a fun part to my day. They follow instructions, most times, because they're ready to get back in to the AC - I don't blame them. And more times than not they are more giggly than the girls. Hunter & his guys were on their game.

Who says you can't have great portraits on a rainy wedding day? Not true. Simply add a few fun clear umbrellas.
