When Meghan and I were chatting about planning their engagement session and trying to coordinate when they would be in Atlanta, I thought well you know.... we could do it in your neck of the woods! Meghan and Garrett's neck of the woods happens to be the DC area and I haven't been since before I had braces so I was PUMPED! So we booked a flight and soon it was time to pack our bags and head to Washington! The weather was a little iffy so we called an audible and switched it to sunrise Friday morning. We met at the Jefferson Memorial and explored a little around the Tidal Basin but since we switched our shoot to Friday, Meghan and Garrett had more of a time crunch as they still had to get to work! I will admit this was a total bummer because I could've photographed them around every monument and memorial all day long or just spent the whole day with them! Meghan and Garrett were so much fun and were troopers with the chilly weather! For them, exploring the National Mall was no biggie since they live in the area, but I had to apologize for being giddy as a school girl to be shooting in such an incredible place. Meghan and Garrett - thank you for showing me your home. You two are such genuine people and I had a blast with you both! Can't wait for the big day this October!!
I had the honor of photographing Morgan and Trey's wedding day at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn. I have been looking forward to shooting here after talking about all the amazing plans with Morgan and it did not disappoint. Morgan and Trey live in Texas, but came to Atlanta for their engagement session and had their wedding in the Highlands, North Carolina! These two weren't the only ones well traveled on their wedding day, family and friends came from all over the world to celebrate! If you spend a second with them you know why people traveled far and wide to come to their wedding. It was a day filled with so much joy, gorgeous blooms and a dance party that could have gone until morning!
I have known Kenzie for a long time and she is actually the third Hanson sister to get in front of my camera! However it was my first time meeting Alex at their engagement session. When I imagined the person Kenzie would choose to spend her life with, I imagined someone tall (I think it's a requirement for all Hanson sisters actually) and someone who could make her laugh. I mean open mouth, hand on stomach, eyes crinkled shut LAUGH. I'd say I nailed it. To see these two together, you can just tell there is a level of comfort and easiness with each other. Neither of them take themselves too seriously and they're obviously smitten with each other. A great recipe for success, right? Before their session, I scouted out a few locations along my walk (HOORAY for sessions walking distance from my house!) and I'm so glad I did. We had the perfect backdrops of spring blooms for their session. Since they're getting married at the Rooftop at Ponce City Market, they wanted a more natural backdrop for their engagement pictures so this area was perfect! The only thing missing was their dog Mabel... but she needs adult supervision, ha!
I made the trip to Big Canoe early Sunday morning to capture these two Georgia Tech sweethearts tie the knot! Everyone was hard at work getting the space dressed up in pink and white accents and I think the Cherry Blossoms outside got the memo on the color scheme, because the blooms were INCREDIBLE! They perfectly framed Meredith and Michael during their chilly morning ceremony. Who knew that at the end of March Georgia would decide to have winter again? Thankfully everyone was a good sport about it but Meredith was the real champ! Her dress was stunning but was definitely not warm. These two incorporated so many personal details into their day and it felt so perfectly THEM, right down to the Cinnabon cinnamon rolls!
