Birmingham Botanical Gardens Spring Engagement Session


March 19, 2018

There is no better way to kick off spring than with this Birmingham Botanical Gardens spring engagement session with Mary Kate and Gann! Spring at the botanical gardens means everything is blooming and everything is colorful. From the cacti to the trees, we had all the heart eyes walking through the grounds. It definitely helped that we had them most gorgeous sunlight and it was a dreamy 75 degrees. Mary Kate and Gann spend a lot of their free time together outside together so it was only fitting that we picked this location for their shoot. The greenhouse at the Botanical Gardens is one of my favorite places to photograph rain or shine, but it sure is stunning with the perfect combination of these spring blooms and some gorgeous sunlight.

Gann is in ministry and Mary Kate won teacher of the year after only her third year of teaching, so I’m convinced they are going to change the world through the next generation that they teach, guide and mentor. These two, as individuals and as a couple, are so present, passionate, and full of joy and kindness. Photographing their love was so easy, and their strong comfort with each other is so obvious. I have had the pleasure of watching these two go from long-time friends, to dating, to photographing their proposal, to documenting their engagement and soon I will be capturing their marriage through both photography and videography! It has been such an honor to walk with them through this season of life and I know there are great things in store for them.

Mary Kate and Gann are getting married this summer in Birmingham, AL and, if this session is any indication, it is going to be so easy and so fun – June cannot come soon enough!
