Catharine & Kevin | Engaged

Catharine & Kevin Springhill Mobile Alabama Engagement Session

Early morning sessions normally aren't my thing but between these two & that light, I might schedule them more often.

Catharine & Kevin met in college during an anatomy class & have been dating for nearly 3 years. Now they are planning a small & intimate Spring wedding. I have photographed them both individually but never together. And what a treat that was to finally have that opportunity.

We met up for their engagement session at Springhill College & walked along the avenue of grand oaks with their precious pup, Ava. Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!

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!

Ariel & Mark | Engaged

Ariel and Mark Dauphin Island Alabama Engagement Session

I believe in date nights spent at home. Curled up on the couch. Swimming in a sea of cozy blankets. A bucket of buttery popcorn in the middle. And you're letting him choose the movie tonight because you chose last time. It's been a long week & as much as you'd love to put on that new sundress & go out you know you need to slow down. To reconnect with the one who captured your heart months ago. So you stay in.

Ariel & Mark met a few years ago & the rest is history. They enjoy date nights spent at home, too. I think far too often we get caught up in always going that we forget the importance of quality time. So we intentionally traveled to where the ocean meets the shore for one of the sweetest sunset engagement sessions.

If this engagement session was any indication as to what this weekend holds I cannot wait! See you two on Saturday!

Stephanie & Ryan | Engaged

Stephanie and Ryan Engaged Washingston Square Mobile Alabama

I love to travel. To see the world beyond my comfort zone here in South Alabama. In college I had the opportunity to backpack through Europe for class credit (yeah - how awesome is that?!) & last summer I cruised the ocean blue to photograph a one-of-a-kind wedding. There's just something about collecting stamps in that little passport that brings my heart to life. And I love when my couples have that same passion burning within them too.

Stephanie & Ryan are the definition of world travelers. These two have been to places like Italy, England,  & Scotland just to name a few. So it was only fitting that their proposal take place on one of their overseas adventures. In April, Ryan asked Stephanie to be his wife. She said YES! And now they are planning their very own wedding day for spring of 2018.

Ah! Ryan picked out the most perfect ring for his girl. Isn't it stunning?!

Callie & Jordan | Engaged

Callie & Jordan Foley Alabama Engagement Session Swift-Cole Historic Home

I believe in forehead kisses that take you back to the moment you first fell in love. Full of sweetness, surrender & respect. Recalling that time when you almost gave up on finding love until he came along & swept you off your feet. Feeling the flutter of butterflies when he calls you "babe" & reaches for your hand on his parents' back porch. Grab hold & don't let go, adventures await.

These two may look familiar to you because this spring I captured Callie's senior session that ended in a proposal! Ah! (*Check it out here!)

Callie, like me, adores all things Southern. And nothing shouts "Southern" quiet like a white house complete with a wrap-around porch & large oak trees drenched in Spanish moss. Insert the The Swift-Coles Historic Home as the perfect backdrop for their session. Super excited to capture Callie & Jordan's wedding day this fall! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their engagement session.

I believe in growing old with the one you love. Living each day by putting each other's needs above your own. Striving to make Christ known in your marriage & holding on tight through the hills & valleys. 

Savannah & Robert | Engaged

Savannah & Robert are getting married in just four days! Ah!

Last month we met up at their wedding reception venue, Stewartfield, for a sweet engagement session. We laughed & embraced the cooler weather brought on by a few early morning showers.

These two met as freshman in college & they've been together ever since. They knew early on that marriage was in their future & are looking forward to saying 'I Do' surrounded by their closest friends & family. I loved getting to know Savannah & Robert better, so enjoy a few of my favorite photographs from their engagement session.

Sydni & Colton | Engaged

Oh these two - y'all. All the heart eye emojis. 

Sydni & Colton met as students at the University of Mobile.  They were friends for a while & then became "official" in February of 2015. Two years of dating led Colton to propose & now they're planning a summer wedding.

The session started with a few nervous giggles - which is totally normal by the way. Eventually those nerves faded away but the laughter & huge smiles remained.

Sydni & Colton are so in love & I simply LOVE that.

As we were roaming about downtown Fairhope, I mentioned going to this cute little restaurant courtyard...little did I know this is where the two ate immediately following their proposal. Pizone's provided the perfect background for a few of their engagement photos with their creamy white walls. 

This tree. That light. And two people madly in love equals a photographer's dream!

After this engagement session, I am so looking forward to their wedding day in July!

Shelby & Brandon | Engaged

Anytime a couple of mine suggests a beach session, I am all aboard! It's one of the reasons why I LOVE living along the Gulf Coast.

And these two were no exception! Shelby & Brandon are so down to earth & complete naturals in front of the camera. They began as high school sweethearts & the rest is history!

I adore every time Shelby smiles revealing her dimples! It is too cute! And the way her nose crinkles whenever Brandon kisses her. I mean aren't they just the perfect pair?!

Shelby & Brandon will be getting married this June & I simply cannot wait!

Fisher's in Orange Beach provided the perfect background for the start of our session and then we wrapped everything up by chasing the sunset at Alabama Point.

The Proposal | Sarah Margaret & Chance

One day I received an email from Mrs. Freeman inquiring about a family session & my immediate thought was 'Is Chance going to propose?' But after consulting his sister, who happens to be a best friend, she said no. 

A few weeks go by & Mrs. Freeman wants to talk & go over location details for their upcoming session. Perfect. And that's when I discovered that at the end of their family session a proposal would take place!

***Insert little girl screams***

Chance texted me - letting me know that he was on his way. And that's when I began to shake. SM's life was about to completely change & she had absolutely no idea!

SM's knight in shining armor came riding up on horse back! *Insert every girl's dream!!! 


So excited to capture their wedding day this Saturday, 11/19/16!
