I really am lucky that I get to capture love stories for a living. It’s one of my favorite things ever to have couples over to my place and hear them share their story, how they fell in love, and their dreams for the future.Just feeling extra grateful today🌿

So last week I had the absolute pleasure of being part of a bridal photoshoot with the amazing, Midlands-based photographer @sarahelizabethportraits
When Sarah approached me about taking part I was a little hesitant. Feeling knackered, roots in dire need of a good dose of Nice 'n' Easy and still packing 10lbs of baby weight, I thought I would find it impossible to have the confidence to let someone else (other than me and my trusty samsung) take my photo.
In a middle of a field in Lichfield, Sarah and her husband James somehow managed to get this sleep deprived old mama to laugh and prance about in a wedding gown like a 4 year old in an Elsa dress. Warm and friendly, Sarah eased me into the shoot with clear directions yet a go with the flow approach to get natural, relaxed photos which hopefully speak for themselves.
Sunset in a rural setting made for a stunning backdrop and it would've felt romantic had the groom not been whispering obscenities in my ear. Good job it was my husband.
Thanks for the opportunity to get involved in the wonderful day @sarahelizabethportraits
If you know if anyone that requires a photographer for weddings and family shoots please send them Sarah's way. She really is a wonderfully talented photographer.
Thanks also to @kissxx bridal in Lichfield for the loan of the dress x
Here we go! Load in begins tomorrow and I know our bride and groom are so ready for their wedding day this Saturday to arrive! Weddings at the beach are some of my favorites!! Photographer | @christalphotography Planner | @akbrides
The truth? I am absolutely in love with little wedding details and would really shoot them all day if I could. Whenever I arrive on site for a wedding, details are the first thing I photograph, and they always get my creative juices flowing for the day. I think it’s the little things that bring your whole day together. Double tap if you love details as much as I do💍
We are so excited to welcome our newest bride, Maddie! This sweet bride is planning a gorgeous Spring wedding at @theclubbham and we are so pumped to be a part of it! 📷 @allisonlewisphotography #beckysbrides#weLOVEourbrides
Give me ALL the lace, satin buttons, and sweet southern brides.
There may come a day when I decide hiking up a mountain to elope is my ideal wedding to film, but right now I just LOVE filming a Southern as sweet tea wedding.
The great thing about southern brides though, (at least the ones I get to serve!) is that while they know the value of tradition, they aren’t afraid to break it to make their day unique and special!
First Looks, personal vows and tear-filled love letters are all part of their perfect day, and I’m just a giddy videographer to get to capture those memories!!😍😍
What’s a tradition you’re ready to break? Or one you absolutely won’t budge on??
Want a sure fire way to reduce stress on your wedding day?! Surround yourself with only those who love you, support you, and encourage you. It’s the ONLY day in your life where it’s ALL about you, so surrounding yourself with people who believe that will make your big day a joyful one! 📷 @ericandjamiephoto #beckysbrides
I don’t want to just capture moments for you, I want you to feel like you’re a part of those moments all over again. Like that time your bridesmaids sneakily watched you with your new husband with big grins on their faces and excited waves 👋😍🤗😂 #lovebemoments

Birmingham’s famous Sloss Furnace is the perfect spot if you’re looking for for vintage urban scenery. Sloss is home to some of the most photogenic spots in Birmingham and it’s just an added bonus that it’s full of history (and maybe even a few ghost stories!).

Sometimes brides wonder if it’s worth it to spend money on nice chairs and linens. We say ABSOLUTELY! Your chairs and linens actually take up the most visual space at your reception, so they are incredibly important! Just look how beautiful Carmen’s reception looked @aldridgegardens with those beautiful chairs from @12thtable and perfect linens from @bbjlinen! 📷 @ericandjamiephoto #beckysbrides
