Abby & Alex, Engagement

Because I’m from a small town, working in the heart of downtown Birmingham has allowed me to live out my city-girl dreams. I work in a 5th floor loft and frequent a 2nd Avenue coffee shop…. I mean, just call me Felicity Porter.

When Bryan asked Alex and me how we wanted our engagement shoot to feel, the answer was a no-brainer. Urban. We couldn’t imagine a better way to portray this season of our lives than to be documented in the city we call home.

The shoot began just outside of ABP’s building, the Phoenix, and we finished at Urban Standard (the aforementioned coffee shop) after a pit stop for peanuts on a cobble lane. I told you. Urban.

The entire experience was nothing short of incredible. In addition to simply having fun with some of my favorite people, we were handed Polaroids during the shoot that exceeded my vision for the session. Bryan gave us the gift of his art with the below images, and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of our city shoot in Birmingham.

All images, except for the Polaroid above, were captured on a Rolleiflex.
