adam+lily :: engaged :: mississippi engagement photographer

I've known Adam since I started going to St. John's Day School in the 5th grade. Back in those days, I was terribly shy (my how the times have changed) and the new kid in school, but once I got to high school, Adam and I became good friends, and I'm thankful to have him on my short list of people I still catch up with on a regular basis. We share the same sarcastic sense of humor (he may even be a bit alot worse than me), and being the AMAZING artist he is (seriously, check out his work), he's a great sounding board for my own crazy creative endeavors.

Adam and Lily were introduced last year by a mutual friend who just knew they'd be perfect for each other. They were both living in Alabama, she in Birmingham and he on a sailboat in Fairhope, when they started dating and it didn't take long for them to realize that they should be together... forever.

I've never really been able to imagine what kind of girl Adam would end up marrying, but it was completely obvious when I met Lily this weekend that she's the kind of girl Adam needs in his life. She's kind, funny, and chatted it up with me and Miranda (my dear friend and assistant for the weekend) like we'd known each other forever (we're all best friends now, in case you were wondering). She and Adam are all smiles and laughs when they're together, and they have that kind of easy, comfortable love that usually evolves only after years of being with each other.

I had so much fun with them at their beautiful new home in historic downtown Laurel (their decor is GORGEOUS and definitely belongs in the pages of Better Homes and Gardens) and of course, on Adam's sailboat... I threatened to throw a full-on-kicking-screaming-crying temper tantrum if I didn't get to photograph them on the boat, so they obliged :) 

Aren't they just perfect?! I may or may not have gotten a little teary eyed just looking through their images... be prepared for the waterworks on wedding day, folks.

My goodness Lily, you are simply STUNNING. Seriously though... you could be a model.


Adam+Lily :: Thank you for being such awesome friends and giving me a place to stay while in Laurel :) I am so honored to be the one to document this very exciting time in your lives, and I can't wait to see you again at your WEDDING (ahhhh!!!) in just a few weeks! Love to you both!!!
