When I arrived at Madison and Gray’s engagement session, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful country home. The classic country porch and balcony stretched from one side of the house to the other. Ornate wooden brackets adorned every column. The second thing I noticed? Gray’s sweet grandparents sitting together on the front porch. What a beautiful example of growing old together!
I first met Madison when I photographed her sister’s wedding last year. As it turns out, our paths actually crossed a few years prior at another wedding I photographed in Lowndesboro. This was the third time we scheduled Madison and Gray’s engagement session and I’m so glad it finally worked out! One reschedule was because of the weather and another was because Gray was sick. I’m a firm believer that all things happen for a reason even if we don’t understand, so I never question a reschedule. God knows better than I do!
Like 99 percent of my grooms, Gray was not a fan of taking pictures. He laughed when I asked him to do certain poses, but he was a champ and did them anyway! And look how great they turned out, Gray! I knew you and Madison both had those modeling genes – you just needed a little time to warm up. You’ll be a pro on your wedding day now even if you do think some of the things I ask you to do are cheesy. Just remember, if it feels weird, it looks great! 😉
Madison and Gray, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your engagement session, bridal session, and wedding! I am so excited for your April wedding and to spend time with your sweet family again. I pray that every curve ball life throws at you pushes you closer together and that the only thing that grows old in your marriage is you!
