It was SO SWEET to be a part of Blair and Austin’s timeless wedding day in Tuscaloosa! Watching their relationship on one of the most important days of their lives was something I cherish!

The two have been engaged since October 23, 2020! They went on a trip to Highlands, NC with two of their best friends (who were in on the surprise, of course). The plan was just to go for a getaway, but Austin was planning a proposal! They went on a hike and the top had the most beautiful view. He popped the question at the top with the fall trees in the background. He then surprised Blair again by having her whole family and more friends come up there for the weekend. They had the best weekend ever… but then was their wedding day – truly the best weekend ever!

From the laughs, tears, smiles, looks of admiration and excitement, secrets at the first look, to Austin pointing down to Blair’s dress and bumping her nose as she looked, there were so many memorable moments, and I’m so glad I was able to truly capture their love for one another!

The two really were the most classic bride and groom! Blair and Austin tied the knot and every detail of this timeless wedding day in Tuscaloosa was perfect.

APRIL! The. Pictures. Are. So. So. Good 🥺 no, they are amazing! I am absolutely stunned at how talented you are! From every object in the detail shots being placed so well, to the lighting in all the outside shots, to the edits and attention to detail, to everything in between- it is all so perfect. Not only is the look of all the pictures amazingly beautiful, but you TRULY captured mine and Austin’s love so perfectly 🥰 we look so incredibly happy and joyful in all the photos. We are so happy with these pictures! I can’t even describe it. Allllll this to say, thank you so so much!!!! I am having the HARDEST time deciding on my favorites and which ones to post!!! Haha
