Hill-Wittig Wedding | Yellowhammer Brewing | Huntsville, AL

Cheers to the Wittig’s!

With our baby coming soon after, Ashley and Eric’s October wedding was one of our last of 2018, and we enjoyed every minute of it - well, maybe not the extreme heat while also being extremely pregnant… but everything else! :-) 

Speaking of baby, we took a slight break toward the end of pregnancy as we moved into our new house, got ready for baby, HAD baby, and got settled as a family of 4. So, although I was still shooting and editing and sharing, the blog and social media posts took a back seat for a while! I’m so excited to finally catch up the blog.

We met Ashley and her bridesmaids at Elleven Salon in downtown Huntsville. While they finished up getting ready, we started with some detail shots using the rustic brick wall across the street from the salon. The old brick was a neat contrast to Ashley’s modern white dress!

The girls had their hair by Courtney Olsen and makeup by Amy Birchmeier, both wonderful artists at Elleven Salon. 

My personal favorite shots from the wedding are Ashley’s bridal portraits, and the shots with her bridesmaids as well, outside the old First National Bank on the square in the heart of downtown Huntsville. I love the clean, regal look of these, but you guys know I’m a sucker for anything simple and white, especially a nice white background!

Take a look! Seriously, how beautiful are these girls?!

We left the bridal party to go catch up with the groom and groomsmen, who were getting ready in the back of the brewery where the beer is actually brewed! There was Yellowhammer Beer stacked up everywhere! It made for a neat backdrop for not only wedding party portraits, but couples portraits as well! (And it saved us all from that Alabama heat).

Their reception was complete with an ultra modern, unique cake by Eileen Phillips and catering by Creative Catering. Of course to accompany the variety of beers available, there was a lot of dancing, including “the worm”, which for guests’ sake, I’ll reserve those photos for the couple only! :-)

We had so much fun with this sweet couple, and I’m so glad I’m finally able to share more images on the blog! Thank you again for having us Ashley and Eric!

Murphy’s | Fresh 48 | Huntsville, AL

It’s hard to believe this little girl is already (more than) 4 months old!!! It took me a while to post these, but I had to because not only do I love this family, but I love Fresh 48 sessions too.

I don’t know if it’s seeing the excitement and intense love that fills the room, or being able to talk with and encourage new moms the best I can in their most vulnerable, emotional time, but I absolutely love these sessions. So I thought I’d finally share the Murphy’s Fresh 48 session this week, and making this session even more special is how much we love this little family!

We met the Murphy’s through a newlywed’s small group at our church, and I thank God for the friendships we’ve made there and being able to “do life” with all the couples. It’s even more special as some of us make the huge transition into parenthood - together!

Even with these big life changes we all get to meet once a week to catch up, hang out, and love on each other’s babies!

So here’s a few of my favorite’s of the Murphy’s and their family, loving on their precious new addition, and I am so honored that I got to be there for it!

Conway-Artalona Wedding | Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation

If I could choose one word for the day, it would be excitement! Both the bride and groom were absolutely radiating the joy and excitement they felt leading up to the first look, and at the first look, they broke out dancing. 

Wedding days can feel busy and sometimes even rushed, but these two stayed completely even-keeled and joyful the entire day. All the details from each vendor, and the busy hands of their friends and family members, fell together to make the day com together without a single hitch.

My favorite part of the day? Right after their first kiss as husband and wife, the crowd went wild throwing their “wedding towels” and Greg swept his bride off her feet, carrying and spinning her down the aisle. Such a picture of pure and candid happiness as these two high school sweethearts finally became “one”.

Take a look at a few of our favorite images from their big day!
