St Paul Wedding - Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographer

It was such an honor to be a part of this incredible couple’s wedding day in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama–the city where they met and fell in love. It’s been wonderful getting to know Gina & Spencer during such a special chapter in their lives. The couple’s families and friends traveled from near and far to witness them take their vows and celebrate together. We began Gina & Spencer’s day at the historic Redmont Hotel. The Redmont made such a gorgeous backdrop as the wedding party spent the morning here getting ready. One of my favorite moments from the morning was the first look between Gina & her parents with her sisters looking on. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. The Roof at the Redmont was the perfect space for Spencer and his groomsmen to relax before heading over to The Cathedral of St Paul for the ceremony.

Gina &Spencer’s reception took place at the beautiful in downtown Birmingham. Hearing their families give such heartfelt and beautiful speeches during the toasts brought tears to my eyes. These two met in med school at UAB, and Spencer’s brother toasted “you’ve been our role model, our confidant, our doctor, our best friend, and I’m so happy that you’ve found your role model, your confidant, your doctor, and your best friend.” When Gina’s sister spoke, she mentioned that throughout their lives Gina was their North Star, always leading them back home. In just the small amount of time I’ve known them, I can tell that these are just the kind of people they are, always caring for others. I know that she and Spencer will be that for each other throughout everything life sends their way, each other’s North stars. Looking for a Birmingham Wedding Photographer? I’d love to chat with you.

They say love finds you when you least expect it, and I’d bet neither of these two expected to find their soul mate in Auburn that day they met back in the fall of 2016. Charlsie is an Auburn graduate and Ryan was raised in south Louisiana and is a huge LSU fan. The two […]

Huntsville Engagement Session - Huntsville Alabama Wedding Photographer

I had the best time during this engagement session! Elaine and Derrick showed me around the beautiful historic district of Huntsville, and we even popped champagne at their wedding venue, the gorgeous Weeden House Garden and Museum. We finished up their session stopping by the restaurant where they shared one of their first dates, Keegan’s in downtown Huntsville. We made sure to get a photo in front of the “Welcome to Huntsville” mural while we were there.
