"Elizabeth is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Her style of coaching is very easy to follow making her pictures look so natural. I love her use of natural light. Her style is classic and timeless, which is exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. Twenty years in the future, I am confident I will still love my pictures as much as I do today."
"Elizabeth is the most genuine person you will ever meet! The love she has for her job is so apparent not only in her beautiful photos but also in the warm and welcoming atmosphere she creates during her shoots. My husband and I do not love taking photos, however Elizabeth made us feel so comfortable and calm in front of the camera. Our wedding and engagement photos exceeded my expectations. Not only is her work wonderful but her calming positive attitude is what every bride needs on her wedding day. I could not recommend her enough! She is truly the best!"
"Elizabeth is the best choice in my opinion! She took time to get to know Justin and myself to where we felt like friends, which made posing for pictures less awkward. She is extremely kind and not shy to tell you how to pose/stand, which was very helpful for me! Elizabeth's photography is very natural. Overall, I could not have imagined working with a better photographer, because in my experience she is the best!!

My brides often ask me if there’s ever a time that’s too late to do an engagement session. My answer is always, the same. As long as it’s before the wedding day, it’s not too late to squeeze one in! The engagement session does not have to be held close in proximity to the proposal unless you want to use those pictures on “Save the Date” cards. I often photograph engagement sessions within a few months (or sometimes weeks!) of a couple’s wedding day. It’s all about what works for each couple!
I met up with Lindsey and Joey just a little over a month from their wedding date. As owner of Soiree Signatures, Lindsey has quite a busy schedule. Since she’s also in the wedding industry, it meant that picking a time that worked with both of our schedules, plus Joey’s schedule, was going to be tricky. It felt like a miracle that we were able to find a date that worked for all three of us! Once we penciled the date in, I started praying we wouldn’t get rained out because I knew finding a backup date would have been nearly impossible.
Thankfully, we had a rare rain-free afternoon the day of this session. After starting the session at Memorial Park, we headed to a second location that I’d never been to before. Joey had suggested it as a possible idea and I am so glad that he did! I love when my clients introduce me to new locations I’ve never been to before. Best of all, the two locations were just a few minutes apart! I loved the combo so much because it gave us a ton of variety for backgrounds.
We’re in the thick of summer here on Mobile Bay and I’ve been enjoying a brief break from weddings for a few weeks ahead of the fall season starting in September. Lindsey and Joey’s wedding is actually the very next one on my calendar and their big day will be here before we know it!
