Molly & Alex // Downtown Rooftop Engagement Session


Oct 21, 2019

Downtown Birmingham Railroad Park and Rooftop Patio Engagement Session // Birmingham Wedding Photographer

Oh, be still our hearts! We spent the most amazing hour in downtown Birmingham with Molly and Alex photographing their engagement session. Railroad Park was like a photographer’s playground with its perfectly placed hills, beautiful greenery, and downtown skyline views.

Then to finish it off? We headed to Alex’s apartment for private rooftop views of the city! I pretty much swooned when Alex brought us up to the roof. Being able to use a space that’s meaningful to them was icing on the cake. The views were dreamy.

Molly and Alex were an absolute dream to photograph! Their kind and considerate natures made us feel right at home, even though this is actually the first time we’ve met them in person. Combined with their quiet confidence and genuine smiles, every picture we took had us doing a little happy dance inside!

This session thrilled our souls, and we’re honored to have been able to capture Molly and Alex’s heartfelt relationship. Downtown Birmingham, you didn’t disappoint, either!

Enjoy a little peek into Molly & Alex’s engagement session!
