I loved their site and had such a great time with these guys. They have known each other pretty much their entire lives and as a guy who has lived all over the world that story really resonated with me. And now they are tying their knot with all their friends and family present at the home of their kindergarten teacher! This is going to be an amazing experience.

Description: I love that Smith Farm has so much outdoor space available to you. I think outside pictures give you this great feeling of vast, open space that your love can grow to fill (I know, I know its corny but it's what I like). Smith Farm also has the advantage of some great outbuildings that create some really cool backdrops. This allows the couple to sneak away for a quick moment, not have to go very far , and still end up with a nice intimate picture of just them. Once you do that you can have them back with their friends and family before they are missed.

I don't usually use couple pictures in the site review, but they just turned out so cute!

Recommendations: The one thing you have to be aware of with so much outside space is that if it rains you can have a tough go of it if you don't plan ahead. Other than that wrinkle it's all systems go. And with all that foliage come fall we should get some really breathtaking shots.

This could be a great spot for formal pictures if guests can be cleared from the area.This could be a great spot for formal pictures if guests can be cleared from the area.This could be a great spot for formal pictures if guests can be cleared from the area.

Description: I think the best word for Diamond One is whimsical. A great interior space that seems to have the ability to become whatever it's couples want it to be. It's spacious but also a little cozy so with 150 guests getting a second alone so that you can do formals may be a little tricky. That just means we will have a pretty large audience during the formals so we may want to plan for some extra time during that stage.

Recommendations: While the Diamond One Center has a garden at the time of our visit there didn't appear to be enough bushes/shurbs/trees to present a fully functioning outside space. If outdoor pictures are important to you then you may want to plan time into your schedule for the day to be sure you can go to a location that may be more conducive to that kind of picture.

You guys know I love these great little corners for intimate portraits.You guys know I love these great little corners for intimate portraits.You guys know I love these great little corners for intimate portraits.

What a fantastic couple!What a fantastic couple!What a fantastic couple!

What a great couple. We stared out at the Black History Museum in town because it's where they had their first date. I always love when we can shoot somewhere that has meaning and history for the coupleThen we moved to the riverfront where they spend a lot of time. Had a great time with these two and I can't wait to shoot their wedding.

Who: Doshie and Jammaine R

What: Lovely spring wedding

Where: RAC in downtown Montgomery, Al

When: April 7th

 

What a wonderful way to kick off spring!What a wonderful way to kick off spring!What a wonderful way to kick off spring!

Doshie has been planning this wedding for quite some time and it was really impressive to see it all come together. I love when my couples are as visibly happy as these guys were. They are clearly in love and were completely over the moon on their special day. Probably one of my favorite weddings this year and all the guests were warm and inviting. And the thing I love about these pictures is that day was just a little cold and blustery but we managed to give them some great pictures that don't expose that fact at all. Congratulations Jammaine and Doshie.
