DESTINATION

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.

Brittney and Keith were married on a gorgeous spring day at St Peter’s Catholic Church in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know these two over the past year, and it was even more special to spend the day with them and get to know their closest friends and family. Brittney was surrounded by an […]

Whenever I speak to a potential bride I love to hear how her fiancé proposed! I love how she lights up when describing how he planned out all those sweet, thoughtful details. I especially love when I get to share in the surprise and document such a momentous occasion for a couple. Pure joy.

When Tim contacted me in early November about photographing his proposal to Laura, I was thrilled! I thought for sure he was going to propose during the holidays, but he said he wanted to…

Alley Station Wedding - Montgomery Alabama Wedding Photographer

A beautiful summer afternoon spending time with your friends and getting dolled up for your bridal portraits—what could be better?! We had an amazing time taking Haley’s bridal portraits at Alley Station Rooftop + Ballroom in downtown Montgomery. This wedding venue has tons to offer brides, so we opted to take advantage of both the indoor and outdoor areas of the facility.

I encourage all of my brides to book a bridal session for three main reasons:

  • One – You get to have a trial run of your hair and makeup, and then see how you will look in photos in case you want to change anything up on your wedding day.
  • Two – This gives you stunning photos of yourself to print a canvas to display at your reception, and you can even gift your parents (who have worked so hard to make your dream wedding come true!) a print or a canvas to display in their home.
  • Three – The wedding day will fly by, and it’s so much fun to spend a couple of hours getting to feel beautiful in your gown and bring your friends along too!

The Alley Station Ballroom made for the most elegant and dramatic bridal portraits, and we loved the exposed rustic brick wall and modern accents of the Rooftop too. You can find more of this stunning session in the recent issue of Gulf Coast Weddings Magazine.

From the first time I met with Haley and Mark, I knew their wedding would be one for the books! I just love the way they glow when they talk about each other, and they completely light up when they’re together. Over the past year, I’ve had the honor of photographing their engagement portraits at Robert […]
