Michael and Jeff go way back, well not way way back, but the good ole days of UAB. In 2010, Michael was searching for a new roommate. He and Jeff became friends through UAB at RUF, and it made perfect sense to be roommates. Michael will always claim Jeff as being the best roommate anyone could have. After Michael graduated, he and Jeff still stay connected over the years. We were so excited to hear from him about getting married and getting to meet Lisa.
We first got to meet Lisa at our very first meeting in alabaster at a restaurant where we immediately fell in love with her, when we were leaving the meeting all we could talk about is how well Lisa fits Jeff. it is crazy how much sense these two make together.
For the engagement session, they decided to start out at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Now keep in mind this was Christmas Eve-Eve, normally you would expect everything in the gardens to be dead by now because of the cold weather, however we were able to find some exceptionally pretty places to shoot! We are still not sure how the Botanical Gardens can look beautiful year round but we will never turn down an opportunity to shoot there.
Our second location brought us to the YWCA in Downtown Birmingham. This is actually where Jeff proposed to Lisa and where they first met! We knew we had to work it in since it had such a special meaning to both of them. In short we loved working with these two and we are honored that they thought of us first when planning their wedding.
We are very excited for March, when Lisa and Jeff will say I do in a precious white chapel at Branch Cove. We know it will be a day to remember for years to come for us.
