It never ceases to amaze me the wonderful couples that my passion and profession brings into my life…and in front of my lens. Two such people are Laura + Ryan!
I can’t wait for their July Wedding at Burritt on the Mountain in beautiful Huntsville. Watching them behind the camera just for their engagement session tells me it’s going to be sheer magic! The love they display towards one another just made me grin behind the camera the whole time!
I headed down for the afternoon, and after a week of rather warm temps it, of course, decided the day of our session would be COLD…and windy! Oh well…at least the sun was shining! I’ll take that!
They led us to a place I’d never heard of, but quickly fell in love with. Big Spring Park which is a KOI POND/STREAM flowing from a rock water fountain in the middle of the city? AWESOME!
The fish were a fascination to their sweet pup, Abby, who seemed to enjoy watching them swim. Her Alabama collar fit perfectly for this ROLL TIDE photographer!
They were serious troppers shedding their coats for some of the images, and as the sun went down it provided the perfect lighting for my favorite images of the day. There’s really nothing quite like the Golden Hour.
Watching Laura and Ryan make each other smile and laugh made me giddy. Happy couples are the easiest to photograph as their smiles are geniune, and the love radiates from the inside out. Makes my job so much easier 😉
We finished the day by having a good laugh at a goose who was hanging out by the fish feeders…seriously…beg much? Ha!
So, cheers to Laura+Ryan, and Abby…the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Graves! Thank you for allowing me to capture your love and the start of your new life together! Can’t wait for your wedding day!!
