Real Couples // A Dog Lover's Engagement: Kristen + Laura

Two women from seemingly opposite worlds, a lawyer and an artist fell in love. From first meeting, it was obvious to me how much Kristen and Laura cared for each other. It's the gentle, soft kind of love you can notice from how they speak to each other. They chose to have their engagement photos taken at the Chickamauga National Battlefield, a national park in North Georgia near Chattanooga, TN. The park boasts lots of beautiful fields for roaming with their pup, Bartlett. We had a blast chasing the evening light.

Meet Alex Bee: I believe wedding photography is a people watcher's dream job. I'm in love with a career allows me to photograph genuine moments. From wedding party attendees to parents to coworkers, each wedding comes with a rush of excitement to document each relationship. Beyond wedding photography, I enjoy my two cats, eating Thai food with my partner Jeff, and exploring my Appalachian roots in East Tennessee.
