So, we’ll try to keep this Orange Beach speakeasy a secret but we can’t help but share these dreamy photos!
Owen and Gabrielle wanted a little adventure for their engagement session! So, we started their first look in downtown Fairhope, AL in the Fairhope French Quarter. We absolutely love the green painted windows at Panini Pete’s Cafe & Market and all of the lush greenery around.
They both wanted a downtown look and we love all of the unique architecture the downtown area has. One of our favorite corners is right at N. Church St. and Fairhope Ave. where Another Broken Egg Cafe is located. It has beautiful brick and iron accents on the second floor — definitely giving us some New Orleans vibes!
Next, we headed to The Bluff at Henry George Park, overlooking Mobile Bay. Gabrielle fell in love with the Spanish moss covered oaks that line the sidewalk. This location is one of the reasons they chose Fairhope for part of the engagement photos!
After a few twirls and plenty of laughs, we headed down to the Fairhope Pier to pop some champagne! Once the bubbly was gone, we walked the pier and they snuggled up to watch the sunset on the beach.
As night was quickly approaching, we headed down to a (horribly-kept-secret) Orange Beach speakeasy for some moody photos (we *REALE* love these 😉). But before cocktails, we didn’t want to miss out on all of the fun colorful lights from the Ferris wheel and palm trees that line Main Street!
We loved Gabrielle’s vision for their engagement photos and we’re so excited for the next chapter in their lives!
