Every wedding is special, but never in our 17 years of business have we been so happy to photograph one such as this. Covid has been hard on everyone, but this amazing couple altered course and persevered through one of the biggest obstacles of our lifetime. A 300+ guest list was changed to 18 immediate family members on this private venue in Baldwin County, AL. Wedding planner Blair Gewin did an amazing job with some big changes from the original plans, and the day could not have been more intimate and perfect under the circumstances. These families kept their composure and made it a day of love and celebration that turned out beautifully. We are so thrilled we could be there and capture this day for all those friends and relatives that were not able to attend. Weddings will be a little different in the months to come, but this one is proof that you can still have an amazing event with a little determination. Congrats Margaret and Zach! May God bless your marriage in the years to come.

Alabama Wedding Photographer – Sara & Davis were married last month in another gorgeous Alabama wedding. It was a four day event starting out Thursday night with a private blessing for close family and friends, a bridal luncheon on Friday for the bridesmaids, a rehearsal with spectacular decor’ on Friday night, a full wedding day on Saturday, and then a Sunday brunch where another family member was proposed to. We are still sorting the 11,000 photos we took with the help of five other photographers we’re proud to call our friends. We’re not going to release too much yet for publication reasons, but this will give you an idea of what a special event it was. We’ll showcase more in the near future, including their Africa themed rehearsal dinner that you won’t want to miss! Be sure to see their Alabama engagement session blog post if you missed it. The weather was cold and nasty on the wedding day, so we will also be doing a “day after” session with the couple in the very near future to complete their wedding gallery. Stay tuned!
Update! The Day After Session can be seen Here!
You may remember this cute couple from their engagement session a couple of months ago. This is our second wedding with Brandon’s family, and we were so honored to get to know Brooke’s family this time as well. I only wish all of you reading this could be as lucky as we are to get to spend time with such an uplifting group of people. This is part 1 of their recent 3 day wedding celebration that we cannot wait to share.
Their festivities began on Thursday night at a private chapel in south Alabama on the family property. Brooke and Brandon were surrounded by their closest friends and loved ones for a blessing of their upcoming marriage. It was a very spiritual and uplifting event that was extremely moving to those who were there. What a wonderful way to kick off the weekend.
Those of you who follow our blog might notice that we don’t post a lot of B&W photos. We believe there is a certain way to use B&W like a tool, where the emotion or the story can be enhanced by avoiding the distraction all of the colors in a photo. This was one of those times where turning off the color really allows you to feel the emotion happening here…Our couple was whisked across the property afterwards in this classic Mustang to the stables for some more fellowship and a good ol’ Southern Barbecue. >
Randi sat down with us last year when she booked to tell us about her farm wedding in Greenville, AL. There’s nothing better than when we envision something great in our heads, and then we’re blown away x 10 when we actually get there and see the real thing. It was beautiful! Chase and his dad own this 1400 acre farm complete with stocked lakes and pet deer. Guests were shuttled to the back corner of the property for a ceremony under a massive oak tree next to one of the two lakes. The reception tent was on on a hill with a fire pit just a quick walk away overlooking the lake. The moon was full, the stars were bright, and it was a magical night. The vendors involved are some of the best in the FL Panhandle who traveled to Greenville to pull off this magnificent event. We are so delighted to be able to show you their work that made this wedding possible. Enjoy!

How do bridesmaids get around a large farm? Polaris of course!Love, love, love the dress!Chase is quite fun to hang out with if you couldn’t tell 🙂 He also loves his pet deer… These are just happy to be safe!They were escorted into the reception in style by the bagpiper…You’ve got to love the deer stand groom’s cake by Betty Weber…The decor’ was very farm chic’ and just perfect for the theme of the wedding..
Here’s a little collage of the details… Classic City served a mouth watering buffet of smoked grouper and pork. The popcorn and candy table was a big hit along with Fiore’s rustic farm touches on the decor’.It was a perfect night…The fire pit under that full moon was a hit as well..
What a weekend it was! Sara & Jonathan had a beautiful Mobile, AL wedding, and we got to introduce our new photobooth version 2.0 to the wedding guests. More to come on that later…. For now, enjoy this elegant little sneak preview!
We headed to our home turf of Mobile, AL to photograph Sarah and Tom’s wedding a few weeks ago. It was a sweet wedding at an amazingly beautiful church! We met at Sarah’s sister’s home for some getting ready photos and that was the first time we met Sarah. She was so calm and laid back…love that! After that, we had a little First Look session for the couple at a gorgeous bed and breakfast. Their ceremony was at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and it was full of stone, marble, and granite. I am pretty sure it is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen on the Gulf Coast. We had some tropical weather move through in the wee hours of the morning, so the weather was cloudy, sunny, and really windy all at the same time. We were so glad the rain held off after dodging it for the previous two weddings!
Sarah made these cute boutonnieres and corsages herself out of fabric and I LOVE them!! She put the bouquets together too.
This confessional room had some beautiful light….
Wes caught this before the big walk down the aisle. I think I’ll title this one “patiently waiting”.
This is one of my favorite ceremony moments that Rae has captured…. Sarah reached over and caught a little tear of Tom’s.
We had a great walk to the reception…..
