Becky's Brides is a Birmingham, Alabama based wedding planning studio creating joyful weddings full of Southern hospitality. Thanks for stopping by.
There is truly something magical about the “magic city” of Birmingham. There is so much hustle and bustle. The city is truly coming alive once again! We love to encourage our brides to have an engagement session in Birmingham. Not only does it help you and your fiancé get a bit more comfortable in front of the camera, it also allows you to show your guests your amazing city! Birmingham has so many great places for these super important pictures – and we’re here to help you narrow down your location choice! Here are our top five Birmingham spots for engagement pictures:
The Greenhouse at Birmingham Botanical Gardens Birmingham Botanical Gardens is a staple in the city of Birmingham, and the greenhouse makes you feel like you’ve been transported to the desert! Another perk: it’s covered so if it’s raining you can still have beautiful photos!
Railroad Park: There aren’t many green spaces in the heart of the downtown area, but this one is one of our favorites! Boasting 19 acres right across from the famous Regions Field, Railroad Park offers beautiful greenery, stunning tall grass, and industrial view – basically the best of ALL things. We love this spot because it looks amazing year-round!
“It’s Nice to Have you in Birmingham” Mural – This is such a fun spot to take pictures at, especially if your “happily ever after” is starting in the magic city! The colors are vibrant and the photos you’ll get from this mural are seriously adorable.
Alabama Theatre and the Lyric Theatre – The Alabama Theatre is a timeless and historic landmark in the heart of downtown. It is the perfect spot for some elegant photos and we especially love sunsets shots in front of the famous Alabama sign. Earlier this year, the beautiful Lyric theatre was renovated and re-opened. It is beautiful and it’s right across the street from the Alabama theatre – a two for one photo opportunity!
Birmingham Botanical Gardens: In addition to the greenhouse, there are tons of other stunning options at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Lovely blooms, beautiful white architectural and iron gates are a few of our favorites. If you want iconic garden photos, this is your place!
Birmingham is full of amazing spots for engagement pictures! We hope these suggestions help you find the perfect setting for you and the love of your life. Congratulations on your happily ever after!
