She is Peace and he is Truth. He is Steadfast and she is Beauty. She is Grace and he is Mercy. Together they exude so many attributes of God, and display the goodness of love and marriage that He intends. This day was filled with deep communion with Jesus and with family + friends. I was so honored to get to celebrate every moment with Will and SC! Here’s to the most beautiful marriage.

Lauren and Price's weekend was absolutely incredible. Their deep investment in family and friendship was so evident and it was easy to see that Jesus was at the center of it all. These two have such a sweet love and I know they will laugh a lot, love so deep, and do amazing things in Jesus name as husband and wife.

ALEX + MATT | TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA WEDDING | ATLANTA WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER | MADALYNN YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHY

So many weeks editing this wedding film and I still cry. Words cannot describe what an honor it was to document this day! Every moment was so full of peace and intention. Alex and Matt are two friends I have seen embody Romans 12 unlike any other: 

Let love be genuine. Hate what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 

It was such a treat to witness the beauty of their family and friends who have been with them through it all. So much Heaven, so much joy.  These two are already moving mountains as husband and wife and will continue to step with boldness into all that God has for them! We loveeeee the Kirkpatricks! <3

LAUREN + PRICE | TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA ENGAGEMENT | ATLANTA + BIRMINGHAM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | MADALYNN YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHY

I had the best Sunday afternoon session with Lauren and Price this month. We headed out to Price's family farm, and the land is absolutely beautiful. As soon as we pulled up I spotted a perfect field of yellow flowers and another with tall, golden grass (the photographer's dream). Also, Lauren and Price are absolutely precious so it's obvious that I was feelin real blessed:) After we spent some time in the fields we headed to a creek back in the forest that Price knew of. It was so sweet to see how special this place is to Lauren and Price and how they can't wait to spend the rest of their lives making memories together:) congrats you cuties, August can't come soon enough!

DANIELLE + AJ | TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA PROPOSAL | BIRMINGHAM + ATLANTA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | MADALYNN YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHY

Some of my dear friends got engaged a few weeks back and I just have to share! They are the absolute sweetest. They care deeply and patiently for others and for each other. They are excellent in everything they do, together and apart. They each set an example for everyone around them in how to walk in kindness, intentionality, and love. As you can see, I admire them a whole lot:) 

AJ told me about his plan to propose to Danielle about a month in advance. He said that their two year anniversary was coming up and that he thought it would be the perfect time to propose at their favorite spot, under this giant magnolia tree:) This is the place where AJ had asked Danielle to be his girlfriend. He carved the question into branch so they had always been able to come back and see it :)

The big day rolled around and Danielle was in town from Birmingham to spend the weekend with AJ and his mom. They went to see Beauty and the Beast, and then AJ suggested that they go have a picnic at their favorite spot, under the magnolia tree. He told Danielle that his mom would meet them there with all the picnic supplies, so they could just head over. 

She had no idea what was really going on until AJ literally said “Dan we are not actually having a picnic.” haha. She was so surprised, which made it the most fun:) Their closest friends and family soon emerged from a creek bed close by where they were watching from afar, so sneaky:) 

After all this sweetness, we got to go celebrate at the most fabulous engagement part there ever was! I love these two and getting to capture these moments. Congrats to the best of the best <3
