Sam + Josh - Birmingham, Alabama Elopement

There's nothing I love more than photographing elopements. There's no timeline or minute details- it's just two people who who are madly in love. On this beautiful Wednesday, two families became one with hearts squeezing with joy.

"I love this photo because I feel like it is 100% me. Before knowing God and Josh, I never felt comfortable to be myself. I love that Josh is in front of me and leading me." Sam

With tears, Josh said, "this photo captures something I can't see on this earth." In 2008 Josh lost his son Brayden due to a premature birth. After the loss of his son, he created The Brayden House to house displaced parents of babies in the NICU in Tuscaloosa and has raised thousands of dollars to support research for premature babies.
