Brenna and Colby's Engagement Pictures

My handy brother-in-law, Colby, and his sweet fiance, Brenna, recently had their engagement pictures taken. The photographer did a great job! Her name is Julie Cottrell. She resides in Opelika, AL. Although, like me, she married a Brewton, AL native and didn't mind to make the drive down there to photograph the happy couple.

Below are just a few of the shots they took the other day. To see more photos of Brenna and Colby or to contact Julie click here. You will be directed to her blog.
Also, her formal website can be found by clicking the link below.

Here goes...
Colby is a fireman. This is one of my favorite shots of them at the Brewton Fire Department

Colby, this is not exactly how you should carry your bride over the threshold. wink

This photo was taken on the front porch of the house formerly known as "rent". I documented the renovation process a while back. You can read about it here, here, here, and here . This is where Brenna and Colby will live once they are married. Colby is living there alone now, but you can certainly tell Brenna has already put her special touch on the place.

Ok, I just thought this was sweet and funny. This is a doormat we gave to Colby when he first moved in. I'm so glad it made it into the photos. Ha.

  1. I'm loving the photos! They are amazing! My favorite is the doormat, too. That's probably because I'm not critiquing everything about me in Thanks for the post!

    Julie is a great photographer and wonderful to work with. I've enjoyed getting to know her, and I will most certainly use her for any photos in the future.

  2. I have tried repeatedly to post to your cabin blog but can't seem to get it to work.

    I wanted to make a suggestion for your bathroom in the cabin. A "half tub". You stand it this bathtub that is only half the length of a normal tub. It is round and you suspend the shower curtain on a round rod from the ceiling. They not only work, they are cute too. Good luck. Ann

  3. Thanks for the suggestion Ann. Sorry to hear you've had trouble commenting. It's great to hear from readers. The cabin is such small space. I'm sure the bathroom won't be large either. Your idea sounds perfect for the space.
