A Rainy Birmingham, AL Engagement Session with Dana + Sam

It was a rainy, cold day in Birmingham, AL. But the rain wasn’t going to stop Dana + Sam from celebrating their love and enjoying their engagement session! The plans were in place. It was 100% chance of rain all day. But with Christmas being just three days away plus hectic schedules and more yucky weather in the forecast, we decided to move forward. And I could not be more thrilled we did!

The happy couple met me in the greenhouse at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. They rushed in out of the rain huddled together under their umbrella. Hugs were exchanged, coats were removed and I was so excited to see how perfectly styled Dana + Sam were for their session! We had so much fun together braving the cacti, the rain, and the wind to capture such precious memories.

Sam, keep making Dana laugh! Keep going with the flow and serving her in ways that bring out her beautiful smile. Dana, it brings my heart such great joy to see you so happy. While I love all my brides, it’s not every day that your best friend’s little sister is the one in front of your camera! I’ve watched you grow up and you’ve been present for so many of my precious memories. I can’t wait to capture more of yours! You guys radiate such happiness with your precious spirits and I’m so thrilled you two found one another! Here are some of my favorite images from your engagement session:

Love + Blessings,
