Meet Kelly and Josh. They’re super sweet.
Parking garages are my favorite. Kelly and Josh, thanks for trusting me!
A change of clothes and a change of scenery.
It was sweltering down in this mossy grove where we wrapped up the session. SO worth the sweat, don’t you think?!?
Can’t wait to work with these two again in November at the Sonnet House!
Meet Carmen and Tommy. A bride and groom after my heart. They said ‘I Do’ at 10:30 in the morning and served brunch at their reception. Brunch prepared by the genius chefs at the Spring House Restaurant on Lake Martin. Their wedding was authentically them and simply perfect. Lot’s of sweetness coming your way!
Carmen, you’re a stunner!
Congratulations Carmen and Tommy!!

Starting things off with a FAVORITE! Jimmie Lyn and Matthew said ‘I Do’ at Oak Island on Lay Lake. Get ready for lot’s of pretty y’all!
Putting on a wedding gown is a lot of work!
Putting on a bow-tie takes a lot of concentration. Thank goodness for older brothers!
Even though Jimmie Lyn had a bridal session we couldn’t resist taking just one more at this gorgeous antebellum home. I mean… how could we NOT take a portrait of her here?
This cake from Indulge Sweet Shoppe is brilliant! So, SO pretty and delicious too!
After the sun set the sky was super blue. We asked Jimmie Lyn and Matthew if they would sneak away from the reception for a few minutes with us. THANK YOU for saying yes! Perfect ending to a lake wedding!
Congratulations y’all!! We absolutely loved getting to know you over the past year and we wish you all the best in marriage!!

A beautiful bride and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
Holli, we can’t hide it. We are super bummed that this is your last appearance on the blog. We sincerely hope we get to see you again (as a guest or bridesmaid) at some weddings in the future!
Meet Jaime and Braxton. In 6th grade Braxton gave Jaime her first kiss (innocently at a birthday party) and now they are married. How can you not LOVE that?!?
Pink peonies? Yes Please!!
These two couldn’t stop giggling and hugging and being in love. They’re pretty much awesome.
You Jaime… you are a gorgeous bride.
Jaime and Braxton said, ‘I Do’ at the Government Plaza Park in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
So happy to be married!!

This is a special one! I (Alisa) have known Aimee since high school. We won’t discuss exactly how long that’s been… only because I don’t like math of course.
Growing up and working in a small town, where everyone knows everyone since forever, you don’t always find your perfect match. When this gorgeous Alabama girl and handsome Mississippi guy found themselves wanting to broaden their horizons, they decided to take a chance with E-Harmony. Talk about a success story! The harmony they found turned into bliss and we couldn’t be happier that we got to spend a little time with them making memories, capturing their wedding and spending time with their sweet families. Aimee and Ben said, ‘I Do’ on a Friday morning in a private ceremony at Confederate Memorial Park in Marbury, AL.
The Velveteen Rabbit was one of Aimee’s favorite books as a child. A passage was read before she and Ben exchanged vows.
“Real isn’t how you are made … It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
After the ceremony this special edition was passed down to Aimee’s nephew. LOVE!
Congratulations Aimee and Ben!

Is there anything more Southern than a bridal session? Perhaps the name Jimmie Lyn?? This right here is a double dose of ‘Southernness’.

A bridal session post all in black and white. We met Kaitlyn on a gorgeous Spring day in the heart of Montgomery, AL and the colors in the trees and flowers were rich and vibrant. But, sometimes classic black and white just feels right.
