Emily and Wally | Farm Engagement Session

When some of our very best friends told us they were moving to a farm in Tennessee, I was so sad.  Happy for them to find their dream home, sad to be far away from them. Then the first day we visited I couldn’t get my jaw off the ground.  The land is absolutely amazing, 4 barns, and literally a little slice of heaven.  When Emily and I started talking about what we were thinking for their engagement session this farm seemed like the perfect fit.  Not only did we have so  much fun shooting and playing with the animals, Coleen, my friend, had us all Mason jars with fresh lemonade and amazing sweet tea.  I have to say this is one of my favorite engagement sessions I’ve ever shot.  We had a couple in love surrounded by horses, chickens, weeping willows, barns, beautiful sunlight, cute dogs, surprise goat visits and a stunning sunset.  Need I say more!! It was a session I will treasure.  I can’t wait to share in Emily and Wally’s wedding next summer!!

Anna Leigh and Mo Wedding | Tate Farms Wedding

So I loved this wedding a lot, warning, there are tons of pictures in this post!!! Anna Leigh and Mo married at Tate Farms in Meridianville, AL on a June day.  This was one of the craziest days in Alabama weather I’ve ever seen. Four separate times during the day it went from beaming sunshine and blue skies to pouring down, sideways rain in the matter of seconds.  While watching the forecast the tough call had to be made to move the ceremony and reception. They made the right call as right at the start of the ceremony the rains came again.  She was an amazing sport and still enjoyed every aspect of her day.  We made sure and photographed everything the way she dreamed it!  The bride is incredibly crafty and made all her details by hand.  I loved it!! Anna Leigh and Mo, thank you for allowing me to share in your day and I pray God’s richest blessings over your lives and marriage!!
