Devyn and Brad's Fall Adventure Session in Florence, AL

Devyn and Brad are two precious souls. They met on a dating app, because it’s the 21st century and that’s how we do things. They first set sights on each other under the Shoals Theatre sign in downtown Florence, and had an instant connection. They’ve been together ever since.

Brad enlisted the help of some dear friends to propose. Their friends Kaitlyn and Jake Curtis were having a Christmas party, and Brad had the BEST plan. Brad disappeared mid-party and Kaitlyn pretended to go look for him. Everyone followed her outside, and Devyn went along naturally. Devyn got outside and there was Brad, standing there waiting for her. Brad went into his speech about his adoration and appreciation for Devyn, then he got down on one knee and popped the question. After saying yes, Devyn realized her mom had driven up from Birmingham and was Face-timing her family back home the whole time for them to watch.

Brad and Devyn wed in one month, and I couldn’t be more excited to see what they have put together for their day. I know it’s going to be a thoughtful, emotional, beautiful day. Here’s a peek at their engagement session last year! Congratulations on finding each other, Brad and Devyn. Thank you for letting me document your love story.

Kensley + Luke

Their Start

Kensley met Luke at Auburn University. She had planned a huge party for a friend of hers and Luke showed up. They hit it off immediately. Luke’s first impression of Kensley was “HOT DAMN!” Kensley’s first impression of Luke was “He’s cute, but he’s cocky. He is really cute though.”

After that party in Auburn, Luke invited Kensley and some of her friends to Nashville, where Luke had moved after graduation. In the following weeks, they would text and talk for hours over the phone. Kensley had such a good gut feeling about Luke that she even left a beach trip early to go spend time with him one weekend. They have been together ever since.

They have made long distance work between Birmingham, AL and Nashville, TN. They frequent rooftop bars and concerts, and they travel often. They love experiencing new things and new places together.

The Proposal

Luke originally rented a rooftop and planned to propose in October. He got Kensley’s sister and two of her best friends in on it. He couldn’t wait it out though. While Kensley and Luke were on a camping trip at one of Kensley’s childhood campgrounds, weekends before his planned proposal, he popped the question. He told her that he wanted to get better at photography, and he set up his camera to take a photo of them in front of a waterfall. Little did she know, he had set the camera to record a video of his proposal. She was completely surprised and had no idea a proposal was in the near future. They got dressed up and met some friends on top of the Redmont Hotel for celebratory drinks and photos.

They plan to kick off their happily ever after on September 21st, 2019 with a carefree, fun celebration.
