This Roswell Mill Club wedding was a long time coming! Colleen and Kaleb were supposed to be married in the spring, but COVID threw a wrench in those plans and unfortunately still impacted their wedding day. However, these two and their amazing family and friends made it feel as if we were back in a sense of "normal" and celebrated the newlyweds with flowing drinks and DJ-led dance moves. Colleen and Kaleb were just one of my couples that had to make really tough decisions in the face of a pandemic and I'm so proud that they always kept their hearts and minds set on what was important - starting their lives as husband and wife. The week before the wedding it was clear that Georgia was having a spike in cases and unsure what new government restrictions would be put in place, Colleen messaged me and said even if it's just us - we are getting MARRIED!
It's such an honor when your couples include you in their big life milestones, especially ones as precious as little Whit. I was so excited to see Brooke and Chris but I couldn't wait to meet their newest little one. He was an absolute angel and slept the entire time I was there. He didn't even mind it when his four legged siblings came to check him out. We are still in such uncertain, scary times but there is nothing like seeing a new life brought into the world that can bring you hope. Brooke and Chris are already great tag-team partners. I hope Mr. Whit knows just how lucky he is to have them as his parents! Brooke and Chris - thank you so much for letting me be a part of this amazing, wonderful and exhausting time in your life! My offer still stands to come entertain your four legged babies or take naps with Whit ANYTIME!
Life with a newborn is tough. Add a toddler and a pandemic and it can seem impossible. Thankfully Danielle and Bo are so laid back and just taking things one day at a time which is the only way to do it in this season of life! Big brother BC was hoping I was there to play but he did love giving Noah kisses which was absolutely precious. As these two grow up together I have no doubt there will be mischief but seeing how much BC loves his baby brother (and their "grumpy old dog"), I know they'll all be best friends. Danielle and Bo - thank you so much for asking me to be a part of this special time in your families life. It was so wonderful to see you both again and meet your little ones!!
For Stephanie and Chad, June 20th was supposed to be a day filled with anticipation, fancy clothes, sparkly new jewels, dancing and toasting to the start of a new life together as a married couple. COVID had other plans. We decided to make the best of a special date and these two got dolled up for some pictures anyway! They had champagne, we were surrounded by flowers, they danced and looked amazing while doing it so I would say we got as close to a wedding as we could in a pandemic. Stephanie and Chad are such a fun couple and I love that they decided to take their lemons and make lemonade. I cannot wait for next year when we can have the *real* deal. Stephanie and Chad - thank you for letting me be a part of a special day. It truly made my month to see you two and get behind the camera again!!!
The blog has been pretty quiet since this pandemic started... because basically I have been pretty much "funemployed" without the "fun" with government guidelines preventing events and close contact with others. So when Megan reached out about wanting to update some of their pictures I was like YES PLEASE!!!! It is truly life giving to be behind a camera again and it is even better when it is with a couple I have photographed before. Megan and John are such a sweet couple and it's hard to believe their 2 year anniversary is coming up! I had so much fun with these two ...although I did miss their pups. Megan and John - thank you guys for giving me the opportunity to feel fulfilled again! I hope you love these as much as I do!
