Antique Comforts

I was in Asheville for a few hours on Sunday, yeah, a few hours. But, I had a wonderful time at my client meeting and got the chance to hang out with some friends. The kind of friends that just make my heart feel good and remind me that these relationships are less about common circumstances and more about true friendship. Before dinner I had a chance to wander around my favorite antique place, take some pictures, and dream about future rooms…in my future home. Good times.

Swain Battle of the Bands

This weekend David and I got to go to the Swain’s annual party and take some pictures. We had a blast, and LOVED all the skits! Everyone had great costumes, and great talent! Here are some of the highlights.

Can’t talk enough about {SPRING}

There are so many FUN things happening at ABJ Photography this season it is hard to contain myself! And, on top of all of that, today is the first day of {SPRING} and that makes it all even better! I hate to post over the fact that we just launched out NEW website, so please if you haven’t taken a look, please do! But, I just had to share with you all what I saw on my afternoon walk with Tess, my bff and dog ๐Ÿ™‚ These flowers were just in about one block, and I did not even post them all! Wow, what a sweet season! I hope that you enjoy all the little flowers brought into your life as well!I shot all of these with a super sweet 50 mm f1.2 L lens that I have for the weekend, and will be using during all of our shoots this season. One day, I will own this lovely piece of glass, but for now it is fun to capitalize on our time together.

New Website {LIVE}

Hey Y’all! The brand spankin’ new website is up and running! We cannot wait for you to take a look HERE

What a sweet treat this new site will be, for me, but mainly for my sweet husband who works so hard keeping our ABJ Photography site current. {Not to mention the hours he spent creating our old site.} It is really fun for me to be able to jump online, update something for you all to see, and then publish the site right there, that easy! We are excited for wedding season to gear up, and for all the fun new images! Stay tuned for some Engagement sessions, and Family photos that we hope to be adding soon!

In other news, during the process of getting the new site up and running there have been some changes with the email address. We are still alana@abjphoto.com, but if for some reason it does not go through please contact us at abjphotography@gmail.com in the meantime ๐Ÿ™‚ This matter should be taken care of VERY soon!

Thanks for following along! And, always feel welcome to leave comments on any of the images or posts you like, we LOVE the feedback! Y’all are the BEST!


Going to the chapel…

This weekend in Bradenton, FL was so great on many levels. Not only did we have perfectly warm, sunny, cloudless weather, but we also got to celebrate the Raulerson’s! Beth has been a friend of mine from Asheville for a few years now, and it was a blessing to be at her wedding this weekend. We were not the principle photographer’s at her wedding…she has a very talented uncle who was the photographer. But, we were able to step in and get some great shots of heart warming moments. The chapel was on Anna Maria Island, and the reception was in Bradenton. We had a great time with friends, and sinking our feet in the gulf coast sand!

Beth and Derek had a perfect intimate coastal wedding. And Beth’s dress was so right for the day, light and flowy!
My FAVORITE part of weddings are the details. This is what makes each wedding unique and stand out among all the others. It is the {details} that touch the hearts of friends and family that love the couple so much.
I want to dedicate this blog to Beth’s grandfather, a true professional. And, thank the Raulerson’s for inviting us down for their very special day!
