march 4th. a beautiful sunday 4pm to sunset. birmingham, al
our 2nd attempt at this engagement shoot. back in January, mara and dylan had contacted us for an engagement session. we settled on a date and location. our first shoot lasted all of about 5 minutes. question for other photographers, have you ever been shooting and just not felt that connection between location, subject, lighting, etc.? if so, i’d would love to hear how you handle that situation. this was the case for me on this first shoot. i handled this by being completely honestly and telling the couple how i felt and that if it was cool with them to reschedule for another date and location. and oh am I glad we did. we waited out a couple of months, mainly due to tight schedules. mara and dylan are getting married downtown at b&a warehouse so we decided it was only fit to relocate to the city for their engagement. while taking pictures at multiple areas downtown we got in plenty of walking, and got to know each other a bit more! it’s incredible to be apart of the downtown revival in birmingham. check out some of the shots we got, and let us know what you think.
