Sarah + Evan | Downtown Warehouse Wedding Inspiration

At the beginning of this year I set some goals for myself, as most people do around that time. I had categories like personal, spiritual, financial , and physical of course, but the ones I was most eager to get after were my creative and business goals. One of my major goals was to put on my biggest styled shoot yet, and submit it to be featured. I am so proud to say that less than one month later I had already realized that goal!

When I began planning this shoot, I wanted something different. I had never shot in an industrial modern venue before, which is surprising since that is my personal favorite style! I reached out to some of Birmingham’s most talented creatives and together we designed the most amazing blend of modern elegance I could have dreamed of! It was a joy to work with each of them, and I could not recommend them enough!

And one short month after our shoot, we were honored to be featured on The Perfect Palette! You can view their full post here: Industrial Meets Modern Styled in this Birmingham Shoot

Today I am so excited to share my personal favorite photos from the shoot with you all! I hope they inspire you to get out there and create something!

Ana + Ian | Downtown Elopement

Hi friends! It has been SO long since I've updated this blog! From having a baby at the beginning of the year, to selling our house this month, 2018 has been non-stop! Updating the blog has been on the back burner, but I've kept my Instagram updated during all of my shoots this year, so be sure to follow me for real time updates @emilyrose_photography!

But enough about me! I had to come out of hiding to share these photos with you all! This month I had the pleasure of shooting Ana and Ian's downtown Birmingham elopement! There is something so romantic about a couple getting married privately, and I was so honored to be there to witness it. The morning started at the Jefferson County Courthouse, where Ana and Ian were married in a private ceremony (by the sweetest and cutest judge!), and then we met up at Caldwell Park for some portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs.! These two were so full of joy throughout the whole day and it is evident in their photos. Here are a few of my favorite moments!

Jessica + Stephen | J&D Farms

It was a mildly chilly day in mid-November. Florals of deep burgundy and rich green perfectly complimented the late Fall foliage on the grounds of J&D Farms. Pops of gold throughout the decor matched the golden light that was pouring over the tree line. The rich hues hinted at the Winter that was just around the corner, and a red velvet cake topped with florals and bright red berries was just the right touch for this rustic yet elegant scene.

I couldn't be more thankful for the amazing team of vendors that helped make this day possible. Each provided a vital piece of the puzzle and the end result is something I am so proud to have been a part of.  

Whether you're planning a wedding or just planning how you will spend this New Year, I hope this shoot inspires you to have big dreams, run towards them full force, and create something beautiful. Happy New Year friends!
