And because I know Robyn and Brian are dying for a sneak peak of their wedding images, this if for you guys! (Your slideshow and more images will be ready next week!) : )
This is one of my favorites taken right after the ceremony while they were tucked away (in the church nursery) waiting to take pictures. You can honestly see their joy and true happiness they share.

Ginny and Matt | The Wedding

They're Married!
I titled this blog post and slideshow as "The Wedding", 'cause Ginny and Matt are finally married! : ) I first met not only the couple, but their family as well, back in the Fall of '06. I've photographed Ginny and Matt's Engagement and also Ginny's Bridal Session. I've grown to love this family and have become quite attached to them. We've all anticipated this big day for an entire year! : ) Ginny and her Mom, Valrie did such an amazing job organizing so many great details. The day started with the Bridal Luncheon with sparkling pink lemonade and lady bug cookies (and lots of laughs) and ended with none other than Krispy Cream donuts served late in the night.
Lots of kids in the wedding made for a fun day!
I love this sweet moment during the ceremony.

I think Matt is excited showing off that ring!

I hope you enjoy your slideshow guys! I'm gonna miss the phone calls and emails...keep in touch! ; )
The wedding was held at the historic Christ Church Cathedral downtown Mobile, and the reception followed at The Ezell House. The food and catering provided by Bay Gourmet and the beautiful flowers by Zimlich the Florist. Some of the bouquets were even arranged by Ginny's dad! Go Dad!

Amber and Jeremy

Get ready 'cause this is probably the longest slideshow to date. : ) There are sooooo many fabulous images that tell such a sweet story I just couldn't narrow it down to only a few. It was such a pleasure to meet Amber and Jeremy and to be a part of their day. They were so sweet and such fun to be around. I know it seems like I say this every week but really, I am so blessed to have such wonderful clients to work with! I so appreciate the trust and confidence they have in me to record such a memorable, one-time event. It also helps when my clients are gorgeous and so much fun to photograph! I hope you enjoy your slideshow! I think you'll see abit of what I'm talking about when you view the show---needless to say they were both full of expression. ; )

I told you she's gorgeous! : )

Amber and Jeremy were married at the Historic Rucker Place in Birmingham, AL. and Kathy G. and Co. did an amazing job with the catering and reception details!

Abigail Kate

I'm a MAMIE again! Abigail Kate arrived last night, November 1, to my brother and sis n law, Stacy. They currently live in Maryland and I sooooo wish I could be there with them. Thank goodness though for modern day technology...I had pictures and even a video not even 45 minutes after her birth! : )
And of course, the original punkin' head!
