Fairhope Wedding Photographer | Megan + Curry

I remember sitting behind Megan – then she was still Miss Budlong – at Celebration Church in Fairhope. It wasn’t long after she had been engaged to the love of her life, Mr. Curry Sanders. I remember sitting there (honestly I think I was admiring her adorable hair because she always looks perfectly beautiful and has amazing style) and I thought to myself, I would absolutely love to shoot her wedding. I had no clue if she knew I was a wedding photographer, or if she even knew me at all really. We hadn’t ever carried on any lengthy conversation, maybe just actually spoken a hello in passing. But without knowing her, I still knew her, if that makes sense. I knew she was one of those people who is exactly how you imagine her. I imagined she was a woman of integrity and dignity with a sweet, lovely presence that bubbled up from somewhere deep within. And after serving as her wedding photographer and just being around her with friends and family gathered, my thoughts were all confirmed as fact. She is, indeed, more amazing on the inside than all the beauty you see here on the stunning outside. Her wedding was so intimate and spiritual, full of joy and faith. It was just full of an intangible yet so real peaceful feeling that permeated the entire day. From the adorable First Looks with grandmothers, bridesmaids, and dad, to the overflow of tears from Curry when he saw her walking toward him to become his wife – it was all like a fairytale. Except it wasn’t make-believe. It was and is real life for these two who have committed to trust God and each other on the most amazing journey. I am so grateful I got to be there and be a small part of something so special and rare. Thank you, Megan, Curry, and your families for that honor!

Fairhope Birth Photography | Welcoming Audrey

fairhope-birth-photo (27)

This family is so precious. I have watched them grow through the years and it has been a beautiful sight to see! The photos below are from the birthday of the third little lady to join the Lee family, little Miss Audrey Kate. And what a beauty she is! Just like her mommy and her two sisters before her! And let me tell you, that mommy is more than beautiful on the outside. This woman’s beauty just radiates from her inner spirit. Kristy is a truly lovely person to know. Anyone who has been around her knows this very well. It was so much fun to capture this day. The moments when Audrey’s older sisters each met her for the first time, as they both got to hold her tiny frame and snuggle her… she is most definitely a loved little sister! (In fact, I began to have that feeling… doesn’t my own baby girl need some siblings to love? Ha! We will see what God has in store for that!) And dear Austin, you have your hands full with a household of women! Like my husband who grew up with two sisters and his mom, it takes the strongest and bravest of men that God entrusts with His daughters!:)I am thankful for this family and their trust in me to document the memories from this extra special birth in their family. Welcome, Audrey Kate!

Ashley + Drew | Daphne Fall Engagement Session

Once upon a time, on a perfect fall afternoon, two awesome people (who happen to be getting married this coming May) let me hang out with them and bring my camera along! There was so much love to capture between these two! We mixed some glorious sunlight, a guitar, and of course some Alabama cotton, and the result is one stunner of an engagement session! I knew Ashley was going to be absolutely beautiful in her photos, but what I didn’t know was how much fun her fiance Drew was going to be! We had a blast and I am so excited about capturing what I am absolutely sure will be a really fun and really gorgeous wedding next year! Thank you guys so much!
