Samantha & Graham | Engagement Photography | Fairhope, Alabama

 Summertime Engagement Session at the Fairhope Pier.

I absolutely love engagement sessions. Getting to shoot couples who are not only excited about their new journeys in life that they will be taking together but also excited aboutplanning a wedding to celebrate their love for each other.  Engagement photos gives me a chance to get to know and work with couples in a more relaxed setting before their wedding. Plus, we get to spend time outdoors in nature! Samantha and Graham wanted a summertime engagement photo session at the Fairhope Pier, in Fairhope, Alabama for their location. As someone who grew up near the water I always love it when clients choose a location with beautiful sunsets and amazing landscapes.

This park is full of scenic overlooks and paths through the trees. There is a beach with piers for fishing and swimming. It even has a long pier with a restaurant in the middle!  Samantha & Graham were complete naturals in front of the camera. They were full of laughter and had trouble keeping a straight face for "serious" poses. I always love couples like this because its easy to show their personalities with each other and it allows them to be comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera.

The way that Graham looks at Samantha and the connection that you can see and feel through these photos has me absolutely swooning over the session! I loved working with both of youand had a blast shooting your session.

I am already looking forward to spending more time with these two on their wedding day at the beautiful Grand Hotel this December in Point Clear, Alabama. Scroll down to see more of my favorites from the Fairhope engagement photos from this shoot and feel free to leave a congratulations for the happy couple.

Emily | Senior Portrait Photography | Fairhope, AL

One of the things I love most about Fairhope is the charm. There are so many textures and color options that are available for senior pictures! If you haven’t been there before, you’re definitely missing out on something special! Now that Summer has arrived, all I want to do is get out and explore, create and shoot, shoot, shoot! Now, if Mother Nature could just get the memo and let up on all of the rain she’s been releasing, that would be great. K? Thanks.

Speaking of Summer, my 2018 calendar is officially open and I am currently booking Senior sessions! There are only a limited number of sessions available, so don’t wait to secure your date!
