Downtown Mobile Engagement Session

Posted in: Engagements/Couples

The two best times to take photos are close to sunrise and close to sunset.  That’s when the light is softer and you get a nice, warm glow from the sun.  You won’t see many sunrise sessions from me because sleeping in is one of my love languages.  I will, however, always do a sunrise session if schedules prevent a sunset session, which was the case with Jordan and Kendall.  Jordan is from Selma, but she lives close to Mobile now and I had plans to come down to Mobile last weekend.  The only time all three of us were available was early Saturday morning.  Even though I didn’t get to sleep in that morning, I did get to spend time with such a sweet couple and take photos of them to remember this season of their lives.

When Jordan asked for location recommendations in Mobile, my first thought was downtown Mobile.  I grew up in Mobile and always admired the history and architecture downtown.  Plus, there are so many great spots for photos!  We spent a lot of time near the Mobile Convention Center and the History Museum of Mobile, which brought back many fond memories for me.

Jordan and Kendall share a love of their University of West Alabama tigers and their New Orleans Saints.  I love when couples incorporate things they love (besides each other 🙂 ) into their sessions!  It makes the photos so unique and even more special for them.  Jordan even brought a pearl necklace that her grandmother gave her that I photographed with her ring.

You may remember reading about Jordan and Kendall’s Christmas Tree Farm Proposal a couple of months ago.  It has been fun to capture each milestone of their love so far and I am so excited about their church wedding in May!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from Jordan and Kendall’s engagement session.  Be sure to leave them some love!
