Alyssa & Chris, Engagement

My family got to spend a week in New Hampshire at Camp Spofford this summer. While there I had the honor of photographing some of our friends who recently got engaged, Chris & Alyssa. We shot at some of their favorite spots around camp and the lake. It was such a pleasure to do this session for this lovely couple. I’m thrilled with the images!









Save the Dates

We love how well our holiday cards were received last year, and it seemed to be a natural fit to continue to offer our images with a personal touch.

After designing my own save the date and invitation suite, I was officially bitten by the calligraphy bug and found myself dying to personalize anything on which I could get my hands.

Thankfully, I work with a studio team that encourages my creative endeavors.

As we brainstormed a way to incorporate hand-lettering into my role as ABP stylist, we realized that the offering of save the dates would be a perfect fit. We are presenting personalized cards, printed on our ever-beautiful Hahnemuhle fine art paper, to accompany ABP engagement shoots.

Shown below are a few samples in various styles. I have to say, this project is a personal fave.





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.












Larkyn & Jim, New York Engagement

My session with Larkyn & Jim began on the rooftop of their apartment building in Greenwich Village. We then strolled the streets, hung out on the stoop of a Brownstone and finished over drinks at the quaint local bar, Bobo. My lovely afternoon with this couple got me very excited about their wedding in Birmingham this December.

All of the images were captured on a Rolleiflex.











Emily & Damion, New Orleans Engagement

This Saturday I get to photograph Emily & Damion’s wedding in New Orleans. But last month I flew to NOLA for a chance to get to know this cool couple and shoot some engagement pictures. We had a blast exploring the city, pausing for food and drink several times. I’m looking forward to their wedding this weekend!
