Erica + Hamptom — Swann Lake Stables Wedding

September 5, 2020

Hampton and Erica are college sweethearts who met their first day at Samford University. He is a Birmingham native and she had just moved across the country from southern California, so Hampton took her to see the best view of the city. When I first met these two for coffee to discuss their wedding details, it felt like hanging out with old friends. We had lots of mutual connections through Samford and Erica + I bonded over our shared degree in journalism.

We celebrated this precious couple on a breezy September weekend at Swann Lake Stables, which holds a special place in my heart because that was my wedding venue 3 years prior. Erica wore a stunning dress from Ivory & White and walked down the aisle to All Things New. Their ceremony was intentional and holy, with personal vows, tears, and a few laughs. They ended their perfect day with the most epic sparkler send-off on the back of Hampton’s beloved truck.

Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Dortch!

Their wedding was featured in the Feb/Mar issue of Vestavia Hills Magazine in 2021.

Maddie is truly one of the absolute best things that came from our whole engagement and wedding planning process. She's kind, professional, and as intentional as they come. From day one, she treated us as friends, not just clients. It's so evident how important it is for her to know the people and the stories she's capturing. She has the ability to make us feel ourselves with complete ease. Maddie captured our day so authentically and gave us timeless photos to cherish for our whole lives. I'm so thankful to now call Maddie a friend and can't wait to have her capture all of the special seasons to come for us! I cannot recommend her enough!

Maddie has been my go-to photographer since moving to Birmingham last year! I've used her for both professional and personal photo sessions, and I've never been anything but completely impressed with the final result. Aside from her pure talent and eye for detail, Maddie is kind, inviting, and so timely with her gallery delivery.
