We LOVE our city

Through the years we have found so many places that we just adore to shoot at! Birmingham has so many places to offer and we feel so lucky to live here! Often I get an email from a bride that is asking about locations that are our favorites so I decided to write this resource post to help out with that question! These are not just engagement session locations, if you build photo time into your timeline and your hotel/venue is close to one of these locations we would love to capture it!

Below you will find our favorite Birmingham locations that we have fallen head over heels for!

 

Why we love it:

The versatility and fun of Downtown is ever changing and so exciting to capture each and every time. We love that Birmingham feels big until you really get to know it, then it seems intimate. all our favorite spots are fairly close together making it easy to hit up a couple at a time. Who doesn’t love a giant marble church or a vine covered wall. How about one of our many landmarks or the “It’s nice to have you in Birmingham” sign.

 

 

Why we love it: This classic location is in the heart of Homewood and there is always something beautiful blooming! This Garden is free to the public and huge with each corner full of beautiful light and landscaped to perfection. Rose garden, koi pond, or hedge wall- it’s all beautiful! Want to know what is in season? Check out their website! Chance of rain during your engagement session? No problem there is a GORGEOUS green house that we obsess over every time we visit.

 

Why we love it:

Linn Park is a Perfect mix of a stroll through the park and the downtown areas that we have come to love! Located next to the busy city streets and the Birmingham Museum of ART. We never get tired of shooting here and it really brings a glamorous feel to any engagement session.

 

 

 

Why we love it:

Always popular and in the middle of the action, Railroad Park has a lot of offer photo wise. This man made park is tucked into the heart of Downtown and it is fun to say the least! Depending on what time of year you go, the tall grass might be green, gold or purple. During mid summer cone flowers crowd the edge of the water. The best part? This park is dog friendly! So bring your furry family!

 

Why we love it:

Cobble stone street, Brick and old downtown charm below a overpass that has the BEST view of the city!

 

Why we love it:

The overlook is an all time favorite- An overlook of the city on a perfect little hill of grass. Perfect for a picnic or a frolic during the sunset. There is nothing more romantic.

 

 

 

Why we love it:

Here us out! a parking deck doesn’t sound that romantic but if you hit up a parking deck during the sunset it is absolute perfection and the perfect ending to any engagement session! Don’t forget the champagne and flowy dress!

Why we love it:

Avondale is just a fun place in general to be, every time we are there we notice something new! Like the Pedal Pub that drives by occasionally when we are there. We have slowly grown to love this little park. It has a little of everything! Outdoorsy look to rock steps, an ampa to a cute little duck filled lake with a side walk that wraps around. If you pick this location, since you are already dressed up you have to check out the dining in the area after our session! So many local faves right there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why we love it:

This location is perfect for the unconventional couple, it is rustic yet stoic in it’s historic presence. We love the rich reds the rust brings and the darker areas that bring that romantic mysterious feel.

 

 

 

Why we love it:

Oak mountain is for the rustic and adventurous couple. If you are from the Birmingham area chances are you know Oak Mountain well! It has all your outdoorsy photos needs all wrapped up into one location.

 

 

 

 

  Are coffee dates and farmer markets part of your relationship at this point? Have you dreamed of photos under your Grandfather’s old oak with your fiance’?  Are you both adventurers?

We want to help you share that story!

Below are just a few of the sweet “special places” that couples have brought to us.

Why we love it:  While we love Birmingham, we encourage you to make your engagement session as personal as possible! We are always up for a new experience or location that is outside of the box!
