When Andrea contacted me about shooting her Avondale Villa wedding, I FREAKED OUT. Avondale Villa, you guys! I have been enchanted by that miniature castle atop the hill at Avondale Park for YEARS. Yes, YES! I told her. We met up together with her fiancee Matthew and I was struck by their unique and relaxed love for each other. They're just so...easy. The engagement session plan was as unique as they are: we'd start at Avondale Park and hit some downtown Birmingham highlights; and then end the session in their home including three other members of their family: their cats! I'll admit I was a little nervous about how it was going to play out when I was told that most of the cats "don't like being in pictures" and also "don't always like being around each other"! LOL! As it turns out, the t-shirt-and-jeans relaxed bedroom photos with their cats were my favorites from the day, and can I just say if you're considering doing a nontraditional in-home engagement session...the answer is YES. DO IT.
Okay. Enough of me. Look at the pictures of these gorgeous people!
I can't wait to see what their October wedding day will be like! I'm so excited! <3
