Celebrating Hunter & Grace’s Engagement in Downtown Birmingham, Alabama

It’s not uncommon in March, here in Alabama, to have to reschedule sessions when spring begins to move in, along with the rain.  Unfortunately, it’s also not uncommon to have to reschedule several times.  Add to this, the fact that the schedules of the couples are sometimes tight.  When Hunter and Grace booked us and we began to look at dates for their engagement session, not only did we have to watch the weather but Hunter was scheduled to deploy in late March.  So, naturally, we wanted to make this happen before he left.  We went back and forth between the weather, their work and school schedules and of then we of course had to also consider Grace’s HAMU availability.  Sometimes it can be a little stressful.  However, we persevered and caught a break with everything that we had to consider!  Their engagement session itself went off without a hitch!  We had a great time and although the sun didn’t make an appearance on this day and it was even a bit chilly, you would never know it by these beautiful images!  Grace (whose name, btw, could NOT be more appropriate – shout out to her parents for their foresight!) and Hunter are such troopers!

We say all of this because we want all couples to know, do not let scheduling your session stress you out!  Sometimes (more times than not), we have to go back and forth a bit, dodge bad weather and coordinate several schedules.  BUT, we always prevail and we ALWAYS have a great time and the images always turn out perfect.  And when this happens, the stress that may have been felt while setting it up, is forgotten about and you can look at your images and remember the fun that we had!!  In fact, we had such a great time with Grace and Hunter, we think we’ll do it again!  Yep, we’re going to do another engagement session with them and combine it with family before they get married in July!  We haven’t set the date yet, and we’re sure we’ll have to go back and forth a bit before we find the perfect day, but every email, every text and every phone call will be worth every image and the experience that we have!

Grace & Hunter, we can’t thank you enough for being so easy to work with and giving us the opportunity to not only get to know you, but giving us the honor of capturing the beginning of your together forever!  We can’t wait to meet the rest of your family and then celebrating you all in July!!

**We’d also like to give a huge shout out to Mackenzie (Cosmetics by Mackenzie), for being so flexible and helping make this day possible!
