So glad to be finally showcasing this beautiful wedding. Annie and Taylor, along with their magnificent planner, Blair Gewin, threw a beautiful Southern Wedding in Fairhope, AL this spring and it was absolutely flawless. We hit it off with Annie right away (she is as sweet as southern pecan pie) and cannot wait to see them and watch their family grow for years to come. They’ve already started with their precious dog, Rue seen in the preparation photos. They did a first look at the Grand Hotel, Point Clear, with the ceremony taking place at sunset on Mobile Bay. Huge shout out to the owner, Mary Cane, of the beautiful private property near Bon Secour where the reception took place for hosting such a grand event.

The only thing more exciting than being hired by a great couple is shooting their wedding at your Alma Mater. As a graduate of Spring Hill College, it’s always like coming home when we get to work there. Anna and Jeb had a beautiful and fun-filled wedding surrounded by family and loved ones, many from Anna’s home state of Ohio. We started at the famous Battle House Hotel in downtown Mobile for her preparation before heading over to St. Joseph’s Chapel at Spring Hill for the ceremony, followed by the reception at Stewart Field. Their families were so warm and such a pleasure to be around, and we can’t thank them enough for having us.

Alabama Wedding Photographers – We posted a little peek of Sara & Davis’ Southern Alabama Wedding for you last week, but what we didn’t post about was the terribly overcast weather that day and the fact that Sara was pretty sick on her wedding day. We made the decision before the ceremony even started to have an “after session” to really enjoy some relaxing post wedding portrait time and make full use of that beautiful property. With our friends at Diva Productions beside us, we set up another first look for them to get that wedding day feeling all over again and proceeded to start a their photo session in the same area that Davis proposed. We even had to cancel this shoot twice before this day because of bad weather, but the skies on this day were incredible. We had so much fun playing and having a laid back session with them.
If you missed their engagement session we photographed at the same location, check that our here:

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!
We have a special treat for you today from one of our recent engagement sessions. Nothing makes us happier than an awesome couple, their dogs, a rope swing, and South Alabama. Sara and Davis will be married this winter, and we feel so blessed to be a part of their wedding. We knew as soon as we started this session that they were going to make it easy on us because they are just so good together… and they did. This is probably one of our favorite sessions to date. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we do!

This wedding was the epitome of Southern. It was in the country (way out there!), there were boiled peanuts, homemade jams, cowboy hats, banana pudding, pecan pie, and so much more! I just wish you all could hear Samantha’s sweet voice with her precious accent over this blog! Samantha’s parents really played a huge part in putting the wedding together too. Her mom is an extremely talented designer so everything was just flawless. Samantha’s dad is a co-op farmer and much of the food that was served came right out of his crops. Corn and beans (or was it peas?) planted. grown, picked, and prepared with love for a daughter! Matt and his guys were good ole country boys who really don’t love having their photos taken, but they behaved nicely and I think they didn’t find the photo time too painful. The girls were lots of fun and check out their dresses! CUTE!!!!
We’ll start with a photo from their engagement session you might remember….
Samantha got ready in Lindsey Manor. It was a beautiful old mansion that really complimented her style and taste.
Even the decor’ like this old radio was just perfect for props….
Some other decor in the main hallway of the mansion…..
Samantha gave Matt’s daughter this beautiful necklace as a gift.
Tears were plentiful when everyone saw Samantha in her dress….
Samantha was adorable…
They wanted to see each other before the wedding for plenty of photo time…
This was the chapel across the railroad tracks from Lindsey Manor….
It was a nice walk to the wedding….
This is where the tears really started flowing. Samantha’s dad said a prayer for Samantha and Matt and their new family and it was so touching.
The weather forecast was pretty ominous that day, so a last minute tent was brought in. Thank goodness it wasn’t needed. The horseshoes were a big hit with the kids…..
What is a wedding without cold Coca Cola in the bottle?
Or buckets of boiled peanuts…..
And homemade jams for favors….
I think Samantha’s license plate sums it up! It made for a perfect getaway car……
