It had been raining pretty much all day, so I was so worried this session might have to be cancelled, because R.J. lives in Auburn and this was the only weekend he was available to come down to have these pictures taken. I was so relieved that it worked out! Lauren and R.J. were so flexible with me as we planned this weekend out based on location and weather. They were a breeze to work with and I loved every minute.
Because the Botanical Gardens was closed, there were two other couples
at our first location, but we waited our turn and took cover from the rain. Although it was humid outside, we were still able to stay dry and got all the shots that we wanted.
I loved Lauren’s light pink dress and their little pom poms they brought to celebrate Lauren’s graduating from Auburn last May, and R.J. graduating this May. Lauren is participating in a doctorate of physical therapy program at UAB so for the time being, she and R.J. are separated by long distance. Thankfully soon, that will be a thing of the past.
Lauren and R.J. are getting married just a month before graduation in April, and I know they will be so excited to live near each other again. College + Graduation + planning a wedding can no doubt be stressful, but it will all be so worth it for them in just a few short months when they’re together again.
Our second location we went to was Sicard Hollow. Sicard Hollow has an open field and a beautiful trail, but before we got there, we stopped right where we were because the sun was peeking out behind us. We totally seized the moment and got some gorgeous photos of the sun coming out.
Shortly after, we made our way to the trail where I saw what has to be the prettiest sunset I have ever seen. The rain was officially gone, and the sky lit up with the most stunning orange and pink colors. This was my first time actually capturing a sunset like this on camera and I can’t think of a better way to end this Birmingham, AL engagement session.
Lauren looked adorable in her hat and outfit that she chose and it all matched perfectly with those vivid colors in the sky. I’m pretty certain that these are my all-time favorite pictures from Sicard Hollow and I’m SO thankful we were able to get all the pictures we wanted in this stunning light.
