The Cotton Mill Event Venue Wedding

It was such a blessing and honor to serve MaryAnn and Jordan for their wedding celebration at The Cotton Mill Event Venue.

This was my first time shooting in this space and loved the exposed industrial feel that the property had, especially in the back of the property where an entire section had no roof! That area provided a unique backdrop for one of my favorite moments of the day which was when MaryAnn and Jordan washed each other’s feet while also reading their vows to one another. It was intimate, quiet, and powerful.

Thank you MaryAnn and Jordan for trusting me to capture your wedding day. It was so fun and unique and grateful for the opportunity to serve you both!

Arabia Mountain Engagement Session

I would say that we made the most of our one hour session with Hannah and Travis for their Arabia Mountain engagement session. Despite having higher than normal winds that I’ve experienced there, we still had beautiful light and they were awesome in front of the camera. We also got some killer shots with the sun directly behind them, like you’ll see in this first shot.

Here are some of my favorites from their session and can’t wait for their wedding this fall!

The Engine Room Wedding

It was such a blast documenting Rachel and Jesse’s wedding at The Engine Room. It was my first time shooting at this venue, and it was the perfect fit for Rachel and Jesse, especially after Bowman and Clark put their personal touch on all of the decor.

I loved getting to know Rachel and Jesse better as we traveled to a couple of my favorite north Georgia spots, Toccoa Falls and Tallulah Gorge, for their engagement session. They are so relaxed in front of the camera and their wedding day proved to be no different.

Thank you Rachel and Jesse for trusting me to capture this season in your lives. It was an honor to serve you guys and celebrate with all of your family and friends!

The Mill at Yellow River Wedding

Despite the ground soaked conditions and threat of more rain, The Mill at Yellow River still provided a stunning backdrop for Callie and Jonathan’s wedding day.

Yes, Plan B had to be initiated with moving the ceremony inside but Callie and Jonathan were so cool about it all and you could tell they were just excited that their wedding day had arrived. Thankfully the chance of more rain held off and we could still utilize some of the paved and patio areas of the venue outside.

While it’s rare for me to meet a couple for the first time on their wedding day, that was the case for Callie and Jonathan. However, we connected so quickly and they were so great and natural in front of the camera. I had a blast getting to know them and creating images I know they will treasure the rest of their lives.

Thank you Callie and Jonathan for trusting me with your wedding day and thanks for your great spirits and attitudes throughout the entire wedding. You guys were a joy to work with and it was my pleasure serving you!

Little River Farms Wedding on New Years Eve

Seth and Patricia had the right idea when they chose to close out 2017 and walk into 2018 by becoming Mr. and Mrs. and held their New Years Eve wedding at Little River Farms in Alpharetta.

It was such a joy to serve both of them during this season of their lives, especially because I’ve known Seth for 14 years of my life!  Crazy, right? Well way back between my sophomore and junior year of college, I left my home state of Illinois to intern for a church outside of Atlanta. As the church searched for a host family for me, word got out to Seth’s parents that I was a student at Judson College which just happened to be where they also attended. So, they said yes and I lived in their basement for a summer. What’s so cool is that Seth is now pursuing his dream of becoming a pro golfer and I remember him hitting golf balls over and over and over into a net in another room in the basement. I think it’s paying off!

Since Seth and I have known each other for so long, there was a real comfort level and trust when it came time to help him pull off the proposal. So, after many emails, phone calls, and coordinating with one of Patricia’s closest friends, I hid outside of the restaurant Canoe and waited for them to come outside.  Check out the proposal and engagement photos HERE. Thankfully we pulled everything off and Patricia, a former Miss Georgia which is pretty cool and something she’s super humble about, loved the images and they wanted me to capture their wedding day as well.

Everything about their wedding day was perfect and completely them from the elegant dress that Patricia wore to the golf tees engraved with their names and wedding date. It also stayed just barely warm enough for us to take advantage of the beautiful overcast sky light outside and create some great images together.

Thank you Seth and Patricia for trusting me to serve you both from the proposal to the wedding day exit. You guys are two of the best and I know will do incredible things together as you love each other and serve those around you!

Moss Family Session

While I don’t post or promote this very often, I actually really enjoy reconnecting with past couples to do family sessions. Lindley and Ryan wanted some new photos to use for their Christmas cards last year and so we met up at a favorite spot of mine along with their two pups for a quick 30 minute mini session.

I loved what we were able to capture in such a short amount of time and it really helped that they already knew what it was like to work with me. They are so fun and natural in front of the camera.

Thanks Lindley and Ryan for such a fun session and look forward to more in the future!

Foxhall Resort Engagement Session

I knew I was going to enjoy working with Kristen and Sean from the first time we met. I so appreciated their honesty in their questions as we talked about their wedding day and what they wanted in a photographer. It was more than just about the photos for them. They wanted someone who would help them feel comfortable as well as and we hit it off pretty quick when we met for coffee.

Since they will be getting married at Foxhall Resort this coming fall in The Stables, we decided to take advantage of the property for their engagement session as well. Below are some of my favorite images from their session.

Thanks Kristen and Sean for allowing me to serve you during this season and can’t wait for your wedding!

Serenbe Wedding

Late October days typically give way to mild temps and a bit of warmth still felt by the late fall sunshine, but this day provided more of that mid-winter chill that stings the skin a bit. However, Emily was an absolute champ in her gorgeous gown and the day couldn’t have been more memorable.

While every wedding has its memorable moments, there was a specific moment that took place that I will forever remember. I’ve helped set up and facilitate dozens of first looks and every single one is awesome and unique, but this one provided an image that will always be one of my favorites. As Hunter turned around, his face filled with emotion and tears and he immediately covered it up because he was just so stunned by the beauty of his bride. In order to hold in her own emotions and probably aide in saving her makeup a bit, Emily also covered her face. As you’ll see, this one shot perfectly summed up their entire day.

Hunter and Emily held their ceremony outside on Serenbe’s property located just outside of Atlanta. After taking advantage of the incredible light as well as a warm blanket for their wedding portraits, we headed over to the open pavilion to get their party started.

The day was completely full of laugher, tears of joy, and just true , raw celebration of two people becoming one.

Thank you Hunter and Emily for trusting me during this season from your engagement session to your wedding day. You were both incredible to work with and serve and I hope you treasure these images for the rest of your lives!

Black Rock Mountain Engagement Session

I headed up to north Georgia to meet Avery and Jeremy at Black Rock Mountain State Park for their engagement session. While this location typically boasts incredible views of the Appalachian Mountain foothills, we instead found ourselves in the clouds. Despite the lack of views from the top, we still created some great photos together as we embraced the ethereal surroundings.

Once we finished on the peak, we drove down below the clouds where we could still capture a little of the rolling hills landscape and last bit of fall color clinging to the trees.

Thank you Avery and Jeremy for a great session and I can’t wait to celebrate with you this coming fall on your wedding day!
