Emily & Jim Married! | GWP Birmingham Weddings

Imagine living and growing up in the same city as the one you’re going to marry and not know it. That’s how Jim and Emily’s story began. Both growing up and living in Birmingham, but not meeting until they moved to Atlanta. I bet they are glad they did!

Emily and Jim are the quintessential southern couple full of love, charm, respect and a little southern spice. Their wedding was held in a gorgeous church in the rolling hills of Alabama and we were more than delighted to be there on the big day. Emily simply glowed in her flowing gown and was so fun to photograph. She was even willing to brave the chilly weather to let us do a mini-bridal session. I am so glad she did because we produced some of my favorite photos to date!

We knew going into this wedding that we were going to be limited by the lack of sunlight due to the time change. Never ones to back down from a challenge, Gregg, John (our lovely friend and assistant) and I used our flash and new soft-box technique to create a scene reminiscent of a fashion shoot. It was so fun to play and we were so glad Emily was a willing participant!

Thank you so much Emily and Jim for having us on your big day and enjoy the blog photos!
