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.

Fairhope Wedding Photographers:
We are finally giving this blog much needed attention after a super busy summer of beach portraits, and there’s no better place to start than Christie and Roy! They are tying the knot in Fairhope, AL this Fall and we just know their wedding will be nothing less than stunning. We met up with them back in the Spring along with Roy’s son Kyle for their engagement photos and had a grand ol’ time at Chapel Farms and the Grand Hotel in Fairhope.
Fairhope Wedding Photographers – We had a great afternoon with Brooke and Brandon recently. They are getting married this summer near the beautiful town of Fairhope, AL. They wanted a session around their family property, Chapel Hill Farms, and we were more than excited to oblige after shooting Nikki and Maury’s wedding there back in December. They have a private chapel on the farm you will see in one of the photos that will be used in some of the wedding events. They were naturals in front of the camera and it really shows with this beautiful engagement session. We were able to shoot around the other various farm locations with corn fields and lakes. We finished with a beautiful sunset on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay where we got to meet and photograph Brandon’s sweet Springer Spaniel. We cannot wait to work with this family for another 3 day wedding event soon with some of the area’s top wedding vendors including the Grand Hotel Mariott. We know it’s going to be fantastic!
Here’s a special post for the week. Justine is getting married in Fairhope soon, with reception following at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL. We took the opportunity for a bridal session with her last week while she was in town tying up some of those loose ends before the wedding. We love bridal sessions because it really gives us a chance to go above and beyond what we usually have time for on the actual wedding day. The Grand Hotel is just a beautiful place, and there’s not really much more I can say about it. Justine was stunning in her dress and is going to make a beautiful bride very soon.
We headed straight for Point Clear, AL last Friday the morning we got home from Atlanta for a shoot with the Myers family. These two are celebrating their 40th anniversary and hosted the children and grandchildren to a long holiday weekend at the beautiful Marriott Grand Hotel. It was pouring rain when we arrived, but to all of our delight it cleared up rather quickly. I’m sure they had a great weekend after we left, and I hope we see them again in the future with those beautiful little girls…..
I wish we could take credit for this pose, but these two were cutting up and we saw a photo opportunity. A photographer from the Alabama board of tourism slipped up behind us and grabbed a shot for himself, so I expect to see this in some promo material real soon!
