Olivia & Derek // Downtown Athens Forever Session

Forever Sessions

Downtown Athens Family Session // Wedding Photographers in Athens, Alabama

This downtown Athens family forever session was extra fun for us! First of all, it was Olivia and Derek in front of our cameras. Always fun, always joyful, and always making us laugh!

Second, we loved getting back out to downtown Athens for a session. Downtown is one of our favorite vibes, and it’s been quite a while since we’ve had an Athens session. Olivia and Derek had a couple special places picked out for us. We love bringing in location elements that mean something to our couples!

Third, this session happened while we were postponing weddings and sessions left and right because of COVID19. It was such an encouragement to our hearts to get back behind the camera and embrace the strength of “family” during this really tough time.

Our journey with Olivia and Derek has been nothing but total joy. We first met Olivia as a bridesmaid, then found ourselves absolutely blessed to capture their wedding day several months later. We took the sweetest pregnancy announcement pictures at one of their Forever Sessions. They took over Dub’s Burgers in Athens in 2016, and we grabbed a few pictures at their opening celebration. Yum!

Last week, we were thrilled to get all 3 of them in front of our cameras for a family Forever Session in Athens! And besides just our photography journey with them through the years, they have become precious friends who have warmed our hearts many times.

Enjoy a peek into this socially distanced session and these three sweetest faces!
