I have had a very busy weekend and I love it! I took a wedding photography class and we went to Sloss Furnaces downtown to do a Bride and Groom photo shoot with a gorgeous couple! Brandi and Benjamin were wonderful models and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to photograph them! I learned a lot from the class and I think it has definitely helped in preparing me for my future weddings 🙂
I spent Friday morning at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens with Lauren and Jared. I was so happy that the weather was great because Jared is a Navy Seal and was only going to be in town for a few days. Lauren and Jared are an incredibly beautiful couple as you can tell from these pictures! Jared was not really into getting his picture taken, or changing into 3 different outfits for that matter, but he did what he had to for his lovely fiance and we got some really awesome shots 🙂 Seriously, these two should be professional models.
Ryan and I spontaneously decided to drive to Callaway Gardens in Georgia to get away for the day. The gardens are beautiful, and it has so much more than the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. We were only there for about 5 hours, so we didn’t get to see everything, but we may go back again in the future and stay a few days. It’s definitely going to be a great place to shoot a wedding next year!
I always dreamed of marrying a man like Ryan. A man with intelligence, a fun sense of humor, and above all, a caring heart. A man I could call both my husband and my best friend. A man who would walk hand in hand with me through everything that life brought. I am so thankful that I found and married the man of my dreams. He truly is a wonderful, one of a kind man. Our wedding was the best day of my life, and I will love him forever.
