Karlee & Kyle's wedding day was a long time coming and I'm so grateful I was there to capture it all at Primrose Cottage! These college sweethearts are two of the sweetest people you could ever meet. They were both anxious to see each other for their first look but all the jitters fell away once they saw each other... and they really forgot all about any jitters when Karlee pointed out that Kyle forgot to zip his pants. The comic relief was the perfect way to start off their portraits. Their whole day was so laid back and they could not have had more perfect weather for a fall wedding.
St. Simons is a special place for Hannah and Trey, as it is where they got engaged and where they will be married next spring! I am so glad they wanted to do their engagement session on the island because it is so beautiful! The Spanish moss, palm trees, and gorgeous sunsets over the water are a photographer's dream... not to mention it meant we got an impromptu family vacation too! Hannah and Trey met a year ago and on their first date enjoyed a trip to a brewery followed by Mexican food and margaritas. As Trey put it, "we had beer, Mexican, margaritas, and then I fell in love." When you know, you just know and I know these two have a lifetime of smiles and laughter ahead of them. Hannah and Trey are so comfortable with each other and can't look at each other without grinning ear to ear. We started their session at the Lighthouse where Trey proposed, and then hopped over to the church where they will get married. Our final stop was at Epworth, where we had a sunset that was quite the finale! The only thing that could've made it better was having their adorable dog Charlie there... but thankfully he'll be attending the wedding. Hannah and Trey - thank you so much for making the trip down and giving me an excuse to have a weekend at the beach! I cannot WAIT for March!!
I couldn’t have asked for a better kickoff to wedding season and first wedding post-Mila. I was able to photograph both the rehearsal dinner and wedding and both events were stunning, but best of all I got to know Arista and Jeff's sweet family and friends better! You can truly tell a lot about a person by the company they keep and Arista and Jeff are surrounded by the best. These two war eagles got married in Athens at the Taylor Grady House and everything fit them to a T from the beautiful outdoor ceremony, dancing under bistro lights and of course a special appearance by their sweet pup, Murphy!
I had the pleasure of spending a gorgeous evening on Georgia Tech's campus with Meredith and Michael. We retraced their steps of how their love story began and hit all the meaningful hot-spots on campus. Meredith and Michael met at orientation and ended up in the same dorm and a few classes together. After a few months, they were "official". Gotta love a Georgia Tech love story that begins right from the start at FASET! When I asked Meredith if she had any specific shots in mind she said, "No, I just want these pictures to show how happy and in love we are. Because we are!". And in that moment I fell in love with these two. They're literally almost giddy with each other and I had a blast capturing this exciting time in their lives. Meredith and Michael - thank you for making the trip from North Carolina for your engagement session! I hope you love these as much as I do!
I had the pleasure of enjoying some newborn snuggles and puppy kisses with the sweet Hunt family last week. Miss Lacey was less than a week old but you never would have guessed since she was so alert for much of her newborn session! Being a new mom myself, I was so impressed by Danielle and Alex's energy levels but not surprised whatsoever at how in love they are with their baby girl. I've photographed many newborns but it's different now that I can truly appreciate how much these images will mean to my families! Those little fingers and toes grow so fast! Danielle and Alex - thank you so much for inviting me into your home in such a special time in your lives. You guys are already pros and sweet Lacey is so lucky to have you two as her parents... I'd say Jackson is quite the lucky pup as well. Congratulations again on your precious little one!!
