Engagement Photos at Birmingham Botanical Gardens

It is honestly one of the best feelings for Daniel Taylor Photography when we get engagement and wedding photography clients who are friends with other clients. We know we’re doing our job when word spreads! That being said, we couldn’t have loved working with Crystal and Josh any more during their Birmingham engagement photo session. The two doctors are friends with our 2012 clients Alex and Ben, who are also friends with our doctor and nurse duo, Alan and Allison. The world of doctors y’all!

We spent the morning with Crystal and Josh at the beautiful Birmingham Botanical Gardens, then headed to Avondale Park where their beyond adorable basset-beagle mix, Amori, joined in the fun. It’s easy to see that Amori absolutely loved having her photo made. The couple tried to convince us they were camera shy, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Just look at their gorgeous photos!

We can’t believe it’s been two years since Tori and Mitch tied the knot in a gorgeous traditional Southern wedding at Rosewood in Pinson. Daniel Taylor Photography had a blast getting to know these adorable accountants.  This was, hands down, one of the most fun and emotion-filled weddings we’ve ever been part of, and the photos show that. The couple now calls Florida home.

Happy, happy anniversary, Tori and Mitch, and we wish you a lifetime of joyous years together!

Daniel Taylor Photography is excited to share with y’all highlights of Allison and Alan’s simply dreamy classic Southern wedding at Samford University‘s Reid Chapel in Birmingham, packed with tons of  design panache. All we can say is “Wow.”

We were so honored that Meghan Cease of M. Elizabeth Events would suggest us to her future sister-in-law. The fantastic vendor team included a chapel brimming with exquisite Kathy Miller wedding flowers, a stunning wedding gown from Ivory & White, fantastic wedding hair and make-up from Melissa Moore Bogardus of Joyce’s Formals Salon, gorgeous monograms from Allison Banks Designs, a sleek vintage limo named Helen from James Meredith’s Birmingham Bridal Carriages, and video from the always terrific Lance Holloway Productions. While Meghan was on bridesmaid duty for the day, two of her wedding team pros, Jamie Filstein and Melissa Bowker, handled the moment-to-moment organizing and direction with expertise. What an absolute pleasure to work with this team.

Congratulations to this doctor and nurse couple now calling Mississippi home.
