Fairhope Pier Engagement Session | Valerie & Christopher

Valerie and Christopher had the most romantic Fairhope Pier engagement session! We LOVE photographing our sweet couples in Fairhope… it’s just the perfect by the water feeling without the sand! For a couple who loves to fish the Fairhope Pier was the perfect engagement session location. Although their session was in June, we had amazing (albeit overcast) weather! The wind helped create so much movement in their portraits that we love. Celebrating Valerie and Christopher was so much fun. They’re so sweet together and naturals in front of our cameras, you can’t help but smile when you’re with them! 

Fairhope Pier Engagement Session

Valerie and Christopher shared with us that fishing special to them as a couple. Incorporating casting a line into their photos over Mobile Bay was so neat. As a multi-photographer studio we have an interesting combination of fishing experience. Jessica – grew up fishing and now spends time fishing with her three boys. Toni – who photographed this session – doesn’t even know what kind of fish one might catch in Fairhope. Ha! While it’s our job to teach our couples to look beautiful and natural in front of a camera, Val and Topher (as we lovingly call them) taught me a thing or two!!  What a better way to document the way they spend time together than to photograph it! They of course spent some time snuggling practicing dance moves too!  Engagement sessions are the perfect opportunity to get some dip kiss practice in.

We had a great time with their Fairhope Pier engagement portraits!! Fairhope is full of so many great spots for engagement portraits. The pier is iconic and fit their personalities perfectly. While we walked about and stopped for the perfect portrait spots, we talked about their plans for their wedding day and marriage. Valerie and Christopher will be exchanging vows this Summer at one of our favorite venues – Izenstone. The wedding can’t get here soon enough!

Congratulations, Val and Topher. 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!
