Oak Island Wedding, Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographers

Sara and Clint’s wedding at Oak Island was amazing!  It was the perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold! Flowers and decorations were gorgeous. Sara and Clint were a delight to work with. They made it all very easy!

This is a review we received from Sara. We are so lucky to work with such wonderful people!

Sara said…
This duo was a life saving find for me! I wanted my pictures to look modern, but still capture the day in a classically beautiful way. They did just that. I have flawless portraits of everyone in my family on the best day of my life, as well as more candid photos than I can count. They captured the pure joy of every moment. They were there as my husband and I got ready, and didn’t leave until the venue kicked us out! I still look at those pictures regularly, and STILL smile the entire time I look through them. There isn’t a single shot I would change or wish they had taken, but didn’t. They listened to all of my ideas, and also threw in their expertise in ways I couldn’t have thought to ask for. They were helpful in making the timeline of when to take what pictures so that my family knew when to be where, and were an incredible guide to a smooth wedding day. They also gave me a cd of all my photos, which made printing them a piece of cake. They even upload them onto a website so that family members can print their favorite shots from your day just as easily. Your wedding day is the day that begins the rest of your life. Trusting someone blindly to capture it all is a little overwhelming. If you choose these two, then you can rest assured that they will not leave a photo untaken.

Five things it’s easy to forget on your wedding morning, Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographers

#1 To savor the build-up

Chances are you’ll be a ball of nerves on the morning of your wedding day: anticipation, excitement and a generous dollop of trepidation will make your stomach feel as if it’s full of bridal butterflies. However, try to own your feelings: transfer the nerves into excitement

#2 To talk to your parents…

…Before they get swept away into the crowd of guests. Spend a few minutes with them before the ceremony: chat, hug, hold hands. Your wedding will be an emotional day for your parents, and you’ll never forget those special pre-big-day moments.

#3 To practice walking in your heels, one more time

It’s as simple as this: don’t force yourself to wear shoes you’re not happy wearing. If you wouldn’t usually wear six-inch stilettos IRL, they might not be the best choice of footwear for your wedding day. Try them on again and if they’re anything other than 100% comfortable, trade them for a pair of shoes you know you can walk in. Also, make sure you’ve got a spare pair of heels/pumps to hand, just in case you want to change during the day.

#4 To have a snack

(Bride + champagne) x no food = a recipe for disaster. Even if nerves are stopping you from indulging too much, force yourself to nibble on a small snack. Staggering up the aisle in a bubbly-induced haze and tripping over in the shoes you may – or may not – be able to successfully walk in will make your wedding day memorable for all the wrong reasons.

#5 To send your groom a text

Or an email. Or a note via one of your bridesmaids. If you’re playing it traditional, you won’t have spent the previous night with him – so send him a quick message to tell him how much you love him and how much you’re looking forward to the day ahead. Liberal use of the heart-eyed Emoji encouraged.

 

 

Erin and Rich’s Wedding, Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographers

Erin and Rich got married at Prince Of Peace Catholic Church. It was a perfect winter’s day! I wish more couples would get married this time of year. Flowers and decorations were gorgeous. Erin and Rich were a delight to work with. We had a lot of fun working with the families as well as the wedding party. The reception was held at the Wynfrey Hotel. The grooms family were from Louisiana so the party had a Mardi Gras theme to it. The band, The Maxx, was fantastic! One of the best I have heard. The bride and groom left the party with the band leading the way. Lots of fun!

Old Car Heaven Wedding, Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographers

Old Car Heaven is a great place to have a wedding. Especially if you are in to classic cars like me! April and Eric were so fun to work with. Very photogenic couple! Loved the old rustic building as well as all the old cars. Bayles Catering provided the really awesome food while Brandan from Feel The Beat handled the tunes. Great job!

Planning Your Wedding, Birmingham Alabama Wedding Photographers

 

What I wish I’d known about the planning…

#1 “Set up a wedding only email address”

When you start planning, you’ll also find yourself signing up to mailing lists and emailing vendors left, right and centre. But after the big day, you don’t want to keep receiving news and products which aren’t relevant to you any more.

“Definitely set up a wedding-only email address so you can keep wedding related matters together and separate from your normal life,” suggests bride Jennifer. “It also stops your inbox from being bombarded with marketing emails long after the wedding.”

#2 “Don’t budget on the photographer or videographer” 

Budget is important, especially in the early planning stages – but before ruling anything out as too expensive, prioritize the aspects of your day. What’s most important to you? The dress? The photos? The venue?

After the day, the lasting memories will be in photographic form: “We’re so thankful we booked an amazing photographer,” says bride Hayley.

“Figure out your top priorities for the day and manage your budget around that,” agrees bride Nicole. “For my fiancé and I, our biggest expense was having a live band at the reception. But it was important to us to create a party atmosphere and it was completely worth it, nobody sat down all night!”

#3 “Stop looking for new stuff”

When you got engaged to your husband, you stopped looking at other men as potential partners (well, we’d hope so…) and the same rule should be applied to wedding planning. There’s so much choice out there, so when you’ve found something you love, commit to it! Blogs, magazines and Pinterest can be addictive, but you have to have a cut off point or it will all become WAY.TOO.MUCH.

“Once you’ve decided on a theme and picked all your bits, stop looking through blogs and magazines for inspiration,” agrees bride Hannah. “I nearly ended up with a wedding crammed with 12 different themes!”
