I had the honor, pleasure and nerve-wracking task of photographing Jeremy and Brittany's beautiful wedding day... at almost 39 weeks pregnant. When I first told Jeremy and Brittany that I was pregnant and due right around their wedding date, they weren't concerned at all. They were just so happy for us! Do I have the best clients ever or what?! Although Jeremy and Brittany aren't just clients, I grew up with Jeremy as a pseudo older brother, and I am SO THRILLED he found his perfect match. A chance meeting through mutual friends sparked a wonderful romance and most importantly a friendship. Brittany can hang with the guys, but (as you can see) get dolled up and light up a room with her smile and gorgeous baby blues. As any wedding goes, their day wasn't without hiccups - like a surprise monsoon during their first look and the AC being broken. However, they weren't shaken one bit and you couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces if you tried. Just another reason why I adore these two!
Not every couple wants a lavish wedding day, but every couple deserves beautiful images from the day they said, "I do!". I am humbled and honored to photograph my couples on their wedding day, but there is something that's extra special about being invited as the only guest to a wedding and capturing such an intimate day for two sweet people. Audrey and Jordan knew they didn't want the traditional fanfare but wanted to make the day special for them. With flowers from Shean Strong that smelled heavenly and a beautiful dress by Badgley Mischka, Audrey was a stunning bride and Jordan's reaction to seeing her for the first time was absolutely priceless. After their ceremony, we spent time around the Courthouse and in Decatur Square capturing a few portraits before they headed home to pack for their incredible trip to Greece! Audrey and Jordan - thank you so much for inviting me into this special day and trusting me with your images! I hope y'all have an AMAZING time in Greece - have LOTS of wine for me!!
Feagan and John finally got married and I had the honor of capturing it all as they said, "I do!" at Westminster Presbyterian Church and danced the night away in Downtown Atlanta at the Georgia Freight Depot! Photographing friends' weddings is always special, but this wedding felt like a reunion from all different parts of our lives! You know when the six degrees of separation really feels like two? That's what this wedding was like and I LOVED it! We have known Feagan and John for YEARS and it was so wonderful to see them finally tie the knot in front of their family and friends! I'd say everyone would agree it was a long time coming but so worth the wait!
Two of the sweetest people you could ever meet got married last Saturday at the Chattanooga Golf & Country Club and I am SO grateful I was a part of the celebrations!! Despite a college rivalry, Jackie and Alex's chance meeting in Chapel Hill led to the start of a beautiful relationship that has since traveled across many state lines but landed them in Atlanta, Georgia. So how does a couple from North Carolina living in Georgia end up getting married in Tennessee? Chattanooga has been a retreat for Jackie and Alex out of the hustle and bustle of the city life and after spending the weekend there I can totally get why they chose to get married here! The beautiful mountain views alone are enough to draw you in and if every weekend in Chattanooga was spent hanging with Jackie, Alex, and their AMAZING family and friends I could stay there forever! The entire day just felt so joyous and personalized. The colorful blooms, relaxed music, donut dessert table and a spirited exit all felt like it fit these two to a T!
I had the honor of capturing Jessica and Brian's Decatur wedding weekend, and let me tell you one important fact about photographing big Irish families - they simply don't meet a stranger! You are immediately treated like family and I can see how this love for others helped draw Jessica and Brian together... that and Brian's insistence on pursuing a relationship after a college friendship was revived. After a chilly and rainy week, these two had the most beautiful weather for their wedding weekend with blue skies and warm sunshine! While every wedding day has a few unexpected hiccups (some bigger than others), Jessica and Brian's day was truly perfect because their love for each other and spending time with their family and friends took top priority throughout their wedding celebrations. I think every guest and every vendor got a huge hug before these two left Fernbank close to the stroke of midnight!
