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!

Andrew + Melissa

Last year I had the pleasure of taking family photos for Melissa and Andrew and their two precious babies. But this year Melissa reached out to me about doing something special with just the two of them. So we planned something that could combine a sweetheart session and a romantic date in the city all in one. Andrew wore his suit and Melissa her fancy heels, and we headed to the Birmingham Museum of Art. I love adventurous clients who are willing to try new things, and Melissa and Andrew are always willing to go with the flow, and laugh all the way through. Melissa and Andrew, I hope you enjoyed our evening as much as I did! Here are some of my favorites!
