Kassi and Ryan kicked off my 2021 wedding season and it was a wedding I'm sure none of their family and friends will forget as it was a day with perfect weather, delicious food, beautiful flowers AND a super cool date - 4-3-21! These two were surrounded by so many people that were eager to celebrate them finally getting married, as were Kassi and Ryan after spending their entire engagement in quarantine. I had the pleasure of not only photographing their wedding day but their rehearsal dinner as well which is always a fun way to get to know the people the couple loves most. It was also a great indicator that the reception was going to be an epic party and I was not wrong on that!
For almost seven years I have had the pleasure of having Sara and Dustin in front of my camera. First for their engagement, then wedding and many times over as their family has grown. I am so excited for the White family as they are awaiting the arrival of a baby BOY! It's so fun being pregnant at the same time with your friends... mostly so we can gripe about the same punches to the bladder and lack of sleep BEFORE the baby even comes, but I am just excited to meet and love on this newest member of my favorite crew. If he is half as cool as his big sister, I know we will all adore him. Anna is full of so much spunk, curiosity and sweetness and she's going to be the best big sister! Sara and Dustin - thank you for always including me in your huge milestones... extra bonus points for bringing Bear and Kathy and Phil this time too!! LOVE YOU GUYS!
I had the pleasure of photographing Jen and Trey's gorgeous wedding day at the Foundry at Puritan Mill. After photographing their engagement session at the Atlanta History Center in March and chatting about their wedding day plans, we all assumed we would be in the clear and life would return to normal by October 17th. However Jen and Trey had the best attitude about it and decided whether it was just the two of them or all of their family and friends, they were getting married. I'm so glad they were able to have the day they dreamed of and had the PERFECT weather to boot. Even the wind pitched in and was doing the work for me during Jen and Trey's portraits! From their choice in flowers to the gold foil on the cake and their super laid back attitude about the whole day, Jen and Trey's wedding was one of my favorites. It was the BEST way to end my 2020 season!
Morgan and I had a little getaway to North Carolina for Meghan and Ryan's engagement session and even though we had to shift our plans to accommodate the weather, it was SO FUN! I loved getting to see Meghan and Ryan's home in Charlotte and meet their sweet pup, Ivy. Morgan was the perfect bag holder and Ivy-wrangler. We ventured out to one of Meghan and Ryan's favorite parks before heading to a parking deck for the perfect view of the Charlotte skyline. Watching these two just be silly together was such a joy and they were total troopers for being brave on the parking deck ledge... kidding! Although as someone that's afraid of heights even the cement wall 50 feet from the edge was too close for comfort! I cannot wait to celebrate another Gentry wedding and see these two tie the knot next summer! Meghan and Ryan - thank you guys for having us and letting us love on and totally tire out your sweet pup.
The Montags have added a new little girl into the world and it was such a bright spot in my day (let's be real, month) to get to meet her. I have loved getting to watch this family grow and it is such an honor that they let me be a part of these moments. Photographing two kiddos is always a little harder and more daunting for parents, but it was so incredibly sweet to see Cooper loving on his little sister. He was so excited to hold her and eager to give her all the kisses I asked him to. Now I'm not saying there weren't gummy bears given in exchange for a few poses but I would say it was worth it! Lindsay and Chris - thank you so much for having me and letting me love on your little ones. I can't wait to watch Charlie grow!
