The Birmingham Botanical Gardens in Birmingham, Alabama is a fantastic spot to do engagement photography, especially during the spring time. The session I had there during the morning of Saturday, April 15th definitely backed up this fact. The sun was shining, and the flowers were in bloom, which made the gardens look as vibrant as ever. The sneak preview should have given you a taste of how wonderful things looked.
The happy couple I got to photograph was Morgan and Nick, who will be married on June 3rd. Morgan and Nick had requested a real natural and outdoorsy setting for their engagement portraits, and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens was the first location that came to mind. I knew the spot would offer numerous backdrops and settings for us to use in order to produce some fantastic photographs.
I have done numerous sessions at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens over the years so there are definitely spots that have become favorite locations for me to photograph. We incorporated those locations, which feature great brick and stone work along with colorful plant life and lush greenery, in order to really make the photographs pop and come alive. The ample sunshine available during the early morning hours also gave the images a vibrant energy and feel.
It was great to work with Morgan and Nick in advance of their wedding. I am looking forward to that day in June where I'll be able to capture and document all the key moments of their wedding celebration. I can't wait to see how wonderful things look for their ceremony and celebration.
