Downtown Fairhope Engagement Session | Sarah & RJ

Sarah and RJ had the most romantic Downtown Fairhope engagement portraits! We LOVE photographing our sweet couples in Downtown… it’s just got the most perfect small town feeling. They plant flowers on top of garage cans, for goodness sakes! What’s cuter then that?! Although their session was in November, we had a beautiful (albeit overcast) day for their engagement portraits in Fairhope. Celebrating Sarah and RJ was so much fun. They’re just adorable together and so obviously in love with each other, you can’t help but smile when you’re with them! 

Downtown Fairhope Engagement Portraits

Sarah and RJ are high school sweethearts, which is always so special. And while their proposal story is traditional, it’s still sweet! RJ told us he asked her father for his permission and had the ring a week before he finally asked her. She says it was only a day, but either way, she said yes and now they’re planning a summer 2021 wedding day! They’re still venue shopping around Alabama, and we cannot wait to see where they wind up choosing to tie the knot next summer!

We still had a great time with their Downtown Fairhope engagement portraits!! Downtown is full of so many great spots for engagement portraits. It’s amazing. We enjoyed the surprisingly warm weather and talked about their hopes for their wedding day and marriage. During the session, Sarah and RJ even popped some champagne to enjoy! Although we almost hit a car on Fairhope Avenue, it was worth it! The images are PERFECT and the joy on their faces is priceless!

Congratulations, Sarah and RJ. Enjoy the rest of your engagement and thank you for spending the evening with us. We had so much fun capturing this special time in your love story!
