This girl. Brittany Arias is a super talented photographer that I got to meet a few years ago when she was still a student at BSC, she inquired about interning and I eagerly put her to work. I remember one of the first weddings she helped me with, she was helping clean up the guest’s plates (not a usual part of the wedding photographer’s job), and it really stuck out to me just how thoughtful she is. She is one of the most earnest, big-hearted, kind and gentle people I know, without sacrificing a sense of humor and devilishly good looks, haha. She taught me to do a little mini side french/bangs braid on my hair, she converted from Canon to Nikon (joking about that making her a good person, but she did convert), and she’s so helpful, smart, intuitive and reliable to have around on a wedding day. I’ve loved helping her along the way to form her fledgling business, Love Be Photography, and she’s been such a big part of my growth as well. All along the way she’s been dating this guy, Robert, who is not so bad himself. They make a pretty crazy awesome team, I feel like neither of them has ever met a stranger (you wouldn’t believe how many people Brittany knows from BSC and it definitely makes me feel like a celebrity for their instagram photos from their engagement session receive no less than one hundred likes from the youth Robert leads at Trinity), and it’s easy to see why so many people call them friends. I am absolutely honored to know them both, and tickled to be their photographer. I can’t wait to see all of the goodness that their wedding will be next summer, but also I am excited for this step in their relationship. I am so proud of Brittany and so excited to get to be a part of the wedding plans! I love you, Brittany and Robert!
Since Brittany and Robert are no strangers to waking up early for cross fit (mostly Robert, who really wanted some of the engagement photos to be cross fit style feats of strength if I understand correctly), we opted for a sunrise session. It turned out to be a gorgeous morning and we opted for a very Birmingham session, with a city overlook, some spots downtown, and a new “It’s nice to have you in Birmingham” mural in Woodlawn that was going up that week (you should go check out the finished product!), and we finished up in Homewood with some O’Henry’s (since a lot of their dating consisted of coffee dates) and one of our favorite alleyways. I hope you enjoy them at least a quarter as much as I enjoyed taking them, if so that’s a whole lot of enjoyment.
