I’m so excited to share this Moss Rock Preserve Engagement session! Macie and Taylor met in her driveway their Junior Year of High School when a friend set them up for their Junior Prom. Fast forward six years later, he proposed to her in that same driveway with string lights and photos of their relationship journey. […]

If this fall greenhouse and Birmingham overlook engagement session doesn’t have you ready to bust out your fall candles and sweaters, than I don’t what will. Giselle and Sam’s engagement session was so easy – full of comfort, fall feels, and lots of strong (made it through long distance) love! Giselle and Sam met during […]

Kaitlin and Matt met at Harvard when Kaitlin was finishing her senior year of college and Matt was in Medical school there. Introduced by mutual friends from an acapella group that Kaitlin was in, it’s a love that was clearly meant to be! Kaitlin is about to finish her MBA at MIT but her passion […]

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 […]

A few weeks ago, I photographed Xander and Marissa for a styled shoot for Labellevie Weddings that was featured on Southern Weddings. A few months after that Xander contacted me to help him plan a styled shoot. However, what Marissa didn’t know was that it was a chance for him to propose. After the Hair and Make-up […]

Hayley and Will were naturals in front of the camera, which shouldn’t be too much of a shocker since Hayley is Miss. Alabama 2018. We decided to start their photos at Woodlawn Cycle Cafe and then, to show off the gorgeous fall leaves in Birmingham, we headed to the Jemison Trail. They picked up their […]

Kathryn and Ned met at an Atlanta Braves game, and they are such a fun balance for each other! They love and laugh with ease when they’re together. It’s so clear how much calmness he brings to her and how much fun and silliness she brings to him. Ned proposed when they went for a […]

Taylor and Marc met at a friend’s birthday party and I’m calling it fate because these two are SO adorable together. Selfishly, I’ve always wanted to do an engagement session at the state fair! When I suggested it two these two, I insisted that even if they were just appeasing me I wanted to still make the […]

Photographing KJ and Austin felt like catching up with old friends. I like to think it’s the sisterly connection we have through our national sorority, Chi Omega. Especially since these two were set up by Katelyn’s cousin and Chi Omega big sister, Ansley, and Katelyn also works as a National Consultant for Chi O #gochio. Ansley introduced […]

I have had the pleasure of watching Matt and Heather’s relationship grow over the last couple years 🙂 I even had the pleasure to help Matt with his proposal, give approval of the AMAZING custom engagement ring he designed for Heather, and help him find a photographer (aka Jessica Mae) to document his proposal in NYC […]
