Birmingham, AL wedding & portrait photographer Kelly Cummings

Ashley & Patrick :: Engaged!

I am so looking forward to Ashley and Patrick’s wedding at Historic Rucker Place this June!

I was so excited when I met with Ashley a few months ago, Ashley is a fashion designer [her first official line will hit boutiques this year, so stay tuned for updates in that realm!] and she definitely won me over when she pulled up her inspiration files on her computer! We quickly discovered we were in love with the same blogs and now we’re following each other on pinterest too!

Ashley and Patrick first started dating in high school (Patrick and his friends went to their rival school hoping to meet some girls and apparently it worked!). They saw each other on and off through college and when Ashley returned from a year studying fashion in New York they were on for good. I loved getting to know Ashley and Patrick better during this session, and by the end of it I realized how much engagement shoots are like really fun all-day dates with my couples! We started at Charlemagne Records downtown, where a rap group was setting up to perform, drank hot chocolate and coffees at Forest Perk, weathered the sleet in the cold with a big umbrella, and finished the day with drinks at Fuego in Five Points.

I hope you enjoy!

I love the way Patrick is biting his lip in the photo above. It makes me melt for them!
