real southern 
wedding and family photography


welcome to the blog

I love unscripted moments that cannot be planned. Those images will be honored by those in the frame as well as those looking at that frame for years to come. May you find those moments and images here. 


Welcome to the Love Be blog, a journal about life, travel, weddings, family and love. We are Brittany and Ryane of Love Be Photography located in Birmingham, AL but traveling throughout the Southeast often. Stay a while, take a look around and say hello!

Love Be Photography 2018 Weddings


January 1, 2019

I can hardly believe this year has come and gone. I’m beyond thankful each of these amazing couples and the memories I was able to make, capture, and be a part of. I tell my clients over an over that my greatest hope is that their wedding day photos are part of their story, their legacy and their marriage. That these photos remind them of the love that surrounds them, the vows they promised, and the beginning of their together as ‘we’. Below are the Christmas gifts I give these newlywed clients as a reminder each month, in the every day normalcy of life, of their first year of marriage just how magical love is. I hope you enjoy a look back through all of  the beautiful 2018 weddings Love Be got to be a part of this year and wish you all a Happy New Year!
