Beverly + Kalen | Dothan, Alabama Engagement Photography

Alabama is a great place to enjoy crazy 65 degree weather and golden trees in December. It was a beautiful warmish day at Landmark Park with Kalen and Beverly as I shot their engagement photos and got to know them a little better as a couple. I am so happy to share this photos with you.

It’s such a funny and sweet story of how Kalen proposed to Beverly by a river in the woods under a make-shift bamboo gazeebo. He totally had her fooled. She suspected he may propose, but Kalen somehow tricked her into thinking he was just doing something “special” for her before leaving for his masters degree in a city four hours away. After a picnic lunch and an hour or so in the woods, he got the ring out of the cooler and asked her the big question. I’m so happy she said yes because just look at this love. Radiant.

Their wedding will take place next October and will be shot by the lovely Chelsea and Travis of Crazy Love Studios here at Maria’s Vineyard in Dothan. Beverly and Kalen, thank you both for letting me get a glimpse into your life and your story together. My hope is that your friendship and love for each other will continually deepen through laughter and the beauty you encounter in this world. Shootings you was a real treat.

Caleb + Rebecca | Pure Romance

“Oh on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
so soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
the smiles that win, the tints that glow
but tell of days in goodness spent,
a mind at peace with all below,
a heart whose love is innocent!”
– Lord Byron

The light and the heat were both boiling the sweat on our brows, but I still couldn’t help but feel amorous after working with these two. I don’t mind this Alabama heat as long as I can escape to some AC after a hard few hours with the sun blazing. What blows me away is when a couple is trump enough to withstand it and still look glamorous. These photos look like they were taken somewhere in California. Caleb and Rebecca had such a sweet presence and I’m thrilled they allowed me to come into their life for a couple of hours and capture some of that sweet intimacy you share with each other.
