Wedding

Huntsville Madison Alabama Photographer – Stevens Wedding

This couple couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful evening!!!  This wedding was also nothing short on personality and personal details.  They said “I Do” at A.M. Booths Lumberyard in Huntsville Alabama and it’s eclectic old world charm was everywhere.  I could go on and on but I will just stop and let you see for yourself. ;-)

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – Shoot & Share

So often throughout the busier times of the year I don’t have time to THINK let alone go through the process of submitting my photos to any competitions or publications.  Because I am so horribly neglectful during the busier months I try to make it a point to do so in the slower months.  This is the first year I submitted to the Shoot & Share Photography Competition and I am super pleased with how these images placed!

A few stats about the competition: (because I am a nerd that way. lol)

  • There were over 330,000 photos submitted
  • Over 150,000 contributing artists
  • 60,000,000 contest votes
  • 159 countries were represented

I had NO idea what to expect and where I would rank on the international scale of so many talented photographers.  I was a bit intimidated but I figured if I didn’t place at all I would just be quiet about it and not let anyone know I submitted anything in the first place.  (just being honest. lol)

Out of 50 images that I submitted, I am excited to say that THIRTY of them won a badge!!! :-D

On to the RESULTS!!!

I had 3 images make it to the finalist round!  This required that the images receive enough votes to make it to the top 3.5% of all the other images submitted.  After the official results were released I found that these actually were closer to the top 1%. (YAY! Even better!!!)

Huntsville & Madison Wedding Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – Schopp

This day was simply beautiful.  I don’t think I have been to a wedding before where there were so many wonderful things said about the character of the couple.  It seemed that at every turn loved ones were expressing their love but also their pride in the commitment, loyalty and character of Kinsey and Matt.

Deep beauty <3

Madison & Huntsville Wedding Photographer Jenni M Photography – Couch

This wedding was just beautiful.  The couple was obviously and completely head over heals for each other and the whole day went off without a hitch!

This gorgeous wedding venue is located in Huntsville Alabama.  Annabella at Cedar Glen is a Southern plantation style home surrounded by beautiful gardens and a wide variety of spaces.  It was such a treat to photograph this beautiful couples amazing day at such a gorgeous location.

The flowers were beautifully fresh with color pops in all the right places. 333 Designs  did such an amazing job with the details.  I couldn’t help but grab some close shots of these gorgeous rings.2016-06-18_0002

Adam & Sarah decided to have their first look be as Sarah walked down the isle.  It was such a luxury to shoot a wedding with Lauren Bee Photography.  During the moments before the walk down the isle I spent time with the guys and she with the girls. (No peeking allowed!)  Normally, when shooting a wedding by myself, it is such a huge challenge to get all of the details and even more importantly, the moments.  Being allowed to really spend time getting those moments to remember forever, without the rushing back and forth was something I wish for every couple.  So many more moments, so many more memories captured.2016-06-18_00052016-06-18_0003 2016-06-18_0006

Adam and Sarah’s family and friends gathered around them supporting their new life together was such a beautiful thing to watch.

I don’t think it is a secret that my favorite part of a wedding day is the bridal photos.  There was a willow tree that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it.  The wind made the willows sway and dance in such a magical way.2016-06-18_0014 2016-06-18_0015 2016-06-18_0016 2016-06-18_00182016-06-18_0017

The reception was a gorgeous collage of sentimental details and southern charm.  It was a perfect reflection of this sweet couple. <3  Veneranda Cake Art did a beautiful job on the lovely bride and grooms cakes!2016-06-18_00012016-06-18_0007 2016-06-18_0019

The first dance as man and wife is always such a sweet moment.2016-06-18_0020

As evening got a little older and the sun sank a bit lower I couldn’t help but see the light coming through the trees.  It felt so magical <32016-06-18_0021 2016-06-18_0022

Sunset is just about my favorite time of day.  It makes everything shiny and golden <3

Wedding Madison & Huntsville Family Photographer – Avra

When Meredith first contacted me and I asked her to tell me a little bit about them, the first thing she told me was “I never even wanted to get married until I met Mike.”  She then went on to tell me all of the things she fell in love with.  If there is anything I am good at in this business it is recognizing when someones eyes smile.  It is so beautiful to watch someones eyes light up just because of the proximity of someone else.  Funny thing, his do too!

Meredith and Mike, thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day.  It was such a beautiful reflection of who you are together and I feel privileged to have been a part of it.

Huntsville & Madison Photographer Lifestyle & Engagement – Bayless Couple

I can’t even tell you how much fun this was.  The evening was gorgeous and these two couldn’t be more in love.  Can’t you see it?  They look at each other with stars in their eyes.  Gracie asked if I would just focus on capturing “them” and just being together.  I remember back to the time that my husband and I were married but hadn’t had any kids yet.  I have such sweet memories and it was such a special time as we got to really know each other.  I can’t help but wish we had taken the time to have our own photos taken to document “us” during that time.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate an anniversary than to make “right now” tangible with photos that celebrate the two people that are building something authentically beautiful.

I can’t even tell you how much I am looking forward to the wedding day of these two!!!  Every single time someone chooses me to be with them on one of the most amazing days of their life it makes me feel so blessed.  Yes, I know I take “good pictures” but it’s more than that.  When someone chooses me to be with them and capture those intimate moments that create once in a lifetime memories, I am just flat out blown away!

With that said, I thank you Meredith for choosing me. <3

We met in downtown Huntsville Alabama and just started walking.  I absolutely love how much these two laugh together.  We found so many beautiful little nooks and spaces to frame them as they interacted.

Love is beautiful <3

Wedding Madison & Huntsville Family Photographer – Madison Nature Trail

Today her groom left to take his post in Germany. Our servicemen sacrifice so much for their country. I will always be grateful to the men and women (and their families) that give so much of themselves in the name of our freedom.

This song is a special one. When they met, Josh already knew he wanted to join the Army and he asked her “Will you go with me?” This song is theirs and it played the day they forever committed themselves to each other.

I put together this video with some of my favorite images from their special day.  Hopefully Josh will get to see it before his overseas flight leaves!!!

For a day that threatened rain the weather could not have been more gorgeous!  The location, with the fall colors and rustic charm was simply perfect for this beautiful wedding.  I had the pleasure of meeting this family last year when they were searching for a photographer to take their family photos.  I absolutely love it when I get to see families come back year after year.  I love seeing how their kids have changed and having the opportunity to document “right now” for them.

This was extra special.  Having the opportunity to be a part of a wedding such as this, and to be a part of telling their story, that is just awesome.
