One of the things I love about being a West Georgia based wedding photographer is that I can just as easily serve my Eastern Alabama couples as my Atlanta couples. Not to mention, if you haven’t guessed it already, I love to travel! As much as I brag on Georgia for its darling venues, Alabama has some truly stunning locations. For example, if you’ve never had the chance to visit Oak Mountain State Park, you need to. It’s Alabama’s largest state park that acts as an oasis nestled in the city a little outside of Birmingham. Needless to say, it was the perfect backdrop for Will and Christin’s engagement portraits. I was so excited to explore with them and help celebrate their engagement with an Oak Mountain State Park engagement session filled with some of the dreamiest light ever.
If there’s one thing photographers love, it’s great lighting. This is why we always suggest having your engagement session during golden hour before sunset! Not only does it make our couples literally glow, but it makes your photographs look effortlessly romantic and stunning. This was exactly the case with Will and Christin’s engagement session. I seriously can’t get over how gorgeous the lighting was during their session. While scrolling through their gallery, it was so hard to choose my favorites with you all. (They’re just all so perfect!) But, the dreamy golden sunset surrounding this couple wasn’t the only thing to swoon over. This couple was just darling beyond anything else. Their love was patient, kind, and one that souls spend their lives searching for. There were so many laughs and smiles during this session that couldn’t help but make my heart sing looking forward to their wedding day.
It was such a pleasure making the trip across state lines to capture a snapshot of this sweet couple’s love story. Will and Christin, I had so much fun exploring with you during one of the prettiest golden hours ever, and it was such a pleasure getting to work with you. As you celebrate your engagement, I hope you’ll remember to cherish the little moments on this journey towards the start of your forever together. Not to mention, I hope this session made you even more excited for your big day than you already were! If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s this. I couldn’t be more excited to capture your big day in Alabama in April! (It will be here before you know it!)
