Anna+Jay’s Rainy Day Avondale Engagement Session

You wouldn’t think a cold, rainy Saturday morning in October would be the makings for the perfect engagement session, but I have to tell you, I couldn’t be more pleased with the way Anna and Jay’s rainy Avondale session turned out.

Anna and I attended the University of Montevallo together and I was thrilled when she called to tell me she was marrying the man of her dreams early in 2014.  These two have spent many a date night grabbing beers at our favorite local brewery, so there was no hesitation when I suggested we spend the morning at the park and end our session grabbing a few tasty brews!

We played outside in the rain all morning… I’m not sure I have ever had so much fun doing so! Then after a quick change into some dry clothes we headed across the street to Avondale Brewery.  Having booked their reception at Avondale we were granted early access to the brewery, along with HGTV who was there to film an upcoming episode of House Hunters…This was so cool, and you could very possibly see this stunning couple make the tv debut on the Birmingham Alabama episode of House Hunters!

I had the best time hanging out with Anna and Jay, and can not wait to see these two tie the knot in just a few months!

The Olson’s Post Wedding Cahaba River Gorgeousness!!!

I’m so so glad that these two were up for meeting me after they returned from their honeymoon!  As I divulged in The Olson’s wedding blog, it rained the day of, pushing our timeline back and while it provided for the sweetest soft light for the ceremony, we were left somewhat in the dark for pictures afterwards, which in my opinion, worked in our favor.  Being the avid outdoors couple that these two are, we landed on doing a shoot on the Cahaba.  Laura and Tyler borrowed a canoe, and we took to the river…I couldn’t be more please with the results. Let me know what you think?  Enjoy!!
