After photographing Ali's older sister's wedding and Ali's senior portraits a few years ago, I was thrilled when I got the call that Ali was engaged! Her family has been so sweet and supportive. When I met with Alex and Ali they said, "We're open to whatever you think will look great! We're looking for something a little different than the whole 'field, barn, girl in boots' deal" and I knew we were going to be a perfect fit.
Proposal story: After meeting at a Christmas party through mutual friends, Alex proposed a year later at the same Christmas party through a rigged white elephant gift.
"Ali is really funny to me. She was very shy at first but I made the decision early on to pursue her and it's been beautiful to see how she's opened up." - Alex
"Alex is incredibly blunt in a good way, he is always making people think about a different side to something. He's also really a sweetheart, who may or may not think he's way funnier than he is." -Ali
I absolutely loved getting to photograph these two. They were constantly making me laugh. We enjoyed exploring up and down the creaky staircases of Marathon Village and then headed outdoors onto the streets of Nashville with a tandem bike that was Ali's parents.
Alex and Ali are getting married this August at the Bridge Building here in Nashville. I cannot wait to get to photograph their wedding!
