I have done several engagement photography sessions in the Northport and Tuscaloosa, Alabama area over the years, but one I did on May 13th quickly became a personal favorite of mine. The session was for Elizabeth and Erik, two good friends who will be getting in March of 2018. They wanted to go ahead and get their engagement photos done before the summer season begins in Alabama, and I was happy to oblige the request.
We met up early on a Saturday morning when the weather looked as if it was not going to cooperate. Rain was lingering in the area, but, thankfully, it all cleared up just as we were about to begin the shoot in downtown Northport. That actually allowed for perfect conditions due to the overcast sky. Erik and Elizabeth made use of the lovely downtown Northport setting and the various eye pleasing locations in the area. Those included some of the businesses and historic homes along with the iconic railroad trestle bridge.
Once we finished in downtown Northport, we took a trip over the river to make use of some locations on the Tuscaloosa side of the Black Warrior River. Those locations included the historic Capitol Park ruins, a spot I hadn't photographed in years, the Park at Manderson Landing, and Queen City Park, which is located right behind the Tuscaloosa Public Library. All the locations helped make for a fantastic engagement shoot for Elizabeth and Erik.
It was a blast getting to work with Elizabeth and Erik in these settings. I know it will be the same in March of 2018 when I get to photograph their wedding day, and I can't wait to see how everything turns out and looks for their celebration.
