Fall was finally here in downtown Birmingham, AL . It was the perfect weather for Madison + Johnny’s engagement session. The breeze was blowing, the leaves had started turning, and the sun was hiding behind the clouds. Madison’s brown hair was falling just right over her shoulders, the ring Johnny had given her was sparkling on her left hand, as she giggled and encouraged her future husband down the sidewalk. I was hiding behind my camera, smiling and peeking out to give instructions, but these two were naturals in front of the camera. Buddy, their sweet pup, was wagging his tail down the sidewalk, hanging out with Madison’s mom, happy to be outside, but obviously longing to be closer to his humans.
For the rest of our afternoon together, I watched as I worked and got to know Madison + Johnny. I loved how each balanced the other out as they followed my instructions. He’s the quieter, harder to get to know one, while she’s probably never met a stranger like me! She’s up for adventure, and he’s happy to tag along and enjoy it alongside her. I can’t wait to continue to get to know these two over the next few months leading up to their wedding!
Madison + Johnny, keep balancing each other out, keep making each other laugh, and keep laughing together. Love each other every day as much as Buddy loves you. Continue going on adventures for no reason and having fun together. Keep serving each other well out of your love for one another. I cannot wait to celebrate with you next June!
Love + Blessings,
