I wanted to do something extra special for Valentine’s Day 2023. Let’s be honest, this Birmingham, AL wedding photographer loves a good giveaway. So…why not do one of my own? I teamed up with Dream Drives BHM to give away the coolest Valentine’s Day Photoshoot to one very lucky Birmingham couple!
Let me tell you, Rachel and Brandon Duplantis brought the HEAT. I told them to come dressed to the nines, and they did not disappoint. They have been married a little over four years and are relatively new to the Birmingham area. Naturally, they were pleasantly surprised when selected as winners! Of course, the photoshoot couldn’t have happened without Ruby, the gorgeous red Packard you’ll see in just about every photo below. Rachel and Brandon’s dog is named Ruby as well (it was meant to be!). Dream Drives BHM were just as excited as I was to provide this unforgettable Valentine’s Day for Rachel and Brandon.
I hadn’t met either of them before the photoshoot, so I was unsure about whether or not they’d be up for this challenge. I wanted full-on Hollywood glam, and these two seriously delivered! They took my posing advice and turned it into something even cooler than I could have imagined! Once they started improvising their own poses, I knew we had the right couple for the job!
At the end of the photoshoot, they hopped in the car and drove away for a sunset tour of the city! The weather was perfect, golden hour was upon us and their smiles could not have been bigger. I’m so glad we had the opportunity to meet, and I couldn’t be more thankful to Dream Drives BHM for helping make this Valentine’s Day photoshoot dream a reality. Happy Valentine’s Day!
