Birmingham, AL wedding & portrait photographer Kelly Cummings

Christy & Jeremy :: Downtown Birmingham :: Engaged

For their first date Jeremy took Christy to a Stephen Kellog and The Sixers show at Workplay. Christy had no idea who they were.  Now they are her favorite band.  And Jeremy is her favorite man. [I’m sorry, that was terrible.]The daylight takings in early November is seriously depressing for a photographer, especially practically on the line for the time zone change, which equals the earliest possible sunsets. I anxiously start engagement sessions around 2:30 now and go go go while we have light left. It’s an exciting chase. This time I feel like I won.

It was my first chance to meet Jeremy and I was a bit anxious; the questions that he’d sent along for Christy to ask at our initial meeting were very art-related, which always raises the pressure for the finished product, how to make art for an artist. I really do love these images, and they were one of my first opportunities to play with Visual Supply Co’s film packs, which had a hand in almost every image on the page. Enjoy.

  2. OMG, Christy looks like Pam from The Office! How fabulous! And you did it! Y’all made art. These are amazing! My favorites – holding hands in from of the white pillars with the color showing between them, kissing while holding out the “Magic City” photo, the twirl in What’s on Second, the window reflections, and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE ONES AT RAILROAD PARK! The light, the love looks, the posing! EPIC!
