As you may already know, one of the loveliest things about being a wedding photographer is how it often brings you to places you wouldn’t expect. Abigail, who found us through one of our dear past couples, is from Houston, TX. Oscar hails from Palm Springs, CA. So, what do you do when you want to provide a great middle ground for friends and family to get together for a beautiful wedding day? Well, you pick the quaint little Alabama town of Auburn, of course 🙂
Given that neither of them went to school there nor grew up there, I obviously had to ask. Although the Smiths are from Houston, her grandmother and grandfather are graduates of the university. And it just so happens that Abigail’s grandmother, Jule Collins Smith, happens to be the namesake of the fine arts museum at Auburn. So, what better way is there to honor and remember family while also choosing what turned out to be an absolutely stunning backdrop for the reception.
We have to say a big thank you to Lauren and Jason Miller, the wonderful couple that introduced us to Abigail. It was lovely seeing you two, as always. Let’s make getting together at weddings a habit, OK? And I also promised one of our photographer friends here in Richmond, Brad and Allie Strouse of Strouse Photography that I’d give a little “WAR EAGLE” shout out on the blog. I’ll expect a number of very loud and angry “ROLL TIDE” messages (GEAUX Tigers will also be in large supply, I’m sure) in my inbox shortly. So thank you Brad and Allie 🙂
