Hi, I’m Kelly, a North Carolina native that has found a home in Birmingham with my husband these last three years. I love the warmth, amazing food, and Sweet Home Alabama singing I’ve found here, but mostly I find myself swooning over the love stories of all the couples I’ve met. I love letting a couple tell their story with my photographs: a cozy love that still gets stirred up with butterflies. I love soft natural light and sweet Southern love.
Name: Kelly Cummings
Where you call home: Birmingham, AL for the past 3.5 years, but I’m a Tarheel born and bred!
Things you’d write home to your Momma about: Weddingwire’s Bride’s Choice Awards, being published in Southern Weddings Magazine, Southern Living Weddings Magazine and online publications Elizabeth Anne Designs, Wedding Chicks, Southern Weddings, Style Me Pretty, and Vera Wang Unveiled.
Favorite thing about weddings in the South: Singing and dancing to Sweet Home Alabama! And, the food!
Favorite part of a wedding day: The moments right after the couple comes back down the aisle as husband and wife. I’m almost always tearing up by then!
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms: Not everything will go according to plan on your wedding day, but those details won’t matter tomorrow. Focus on the marriage and the fact that if at the end of the day you are married to your best friend, not a thing could be wrong.
Dream travel destination: France!
Favorite Southern city: Natchez — it’s where I met my husband!
