Fifty-one years ago Andre’s parents came to the courthouse in Montgomery to elope. When they got here they found it was closed. The bride was able to call a friend and arrange to get married at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. So it was just the most romantic thing ever when Andre brought his future bride to Montgomery to elope. They tried to get married at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, but were unable to make arrangements with them. So Andre and Nellie ended up eloping at the courthouse! Just the opposite of his parents’ plan. But fifty-one years to the day.
I’ve always wanted to photograph an elopement, so was very excited when Andre called and I was available. They are just the sweetest couple. Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from the day.
Being an Alabama native, Andre was all excited about taking a photo in front of the Hank Williams memorial. Being a New York native, Nellie was not! Loved how this turned out!
Before Andre took his beautiful bride home to tell his family, we went by Trinity Evangelical Lutheran church for a few photos. I’m sure his parents were thrilled they respected them so much they would honor them with their wedding plans.
If you’re planning an elopement or courthouse wedding your photography for the day is no less important than one of those big church/venue weddings. If you’d like to discuss photography options please complete the form on the contact page and tell me the date you’ve reserved.

I am currently between studios. While the plan was to move from the current location to the new one, the new location is not ready yet. So I will temporarily be without a physical studio location for a month or so. However, I will continue to accept on-location sessions. I am just moving -- not closing.
