Kessler and Cameron had a beautiful, intimate wedding surrounded by their closest family and friends! This was such a meaningful and emotional wedding. Kessler and Cameron are the sweetest couple and I was so happy for them on this gorgeous day. Although their original wedding plans changed, with the help and support of their friends and family, they had a gorgeous day at this beautiful backyard wedding. I had such a wonderful time photographing their wedding and I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
Last fall I had the great pleasure of being a part of the Map of My Heart curated photo session at The Cator Woolford Gardens. The session was hosted by Rick + Anna Photography and designed, styled and planned by Embee Events. This curated photo session was based off the idea of a couple who loves to travel. The beautiful and rich colors of the linens and flowers really enhanced the already gorgeous grounds of The Cator Woolford Gardens. Also, I was excited that my models of the day, Erica and Jamel, are a real life couple who had just renewed their wedding vows! They were absolutely stunning together and it was so amazing to photograph them. All the details were so lovely and perfect. And that cake! I loved how it matched the invitations. Every part of this day was so wonderful and I had a terrific time. Please enjoy these photos and take a look after the photos to see all the vendor credits. Thank you so much Rick, Anna, Melissa and Adam for such a wonderful day!

I absolutely loved this gorgeous wedding. Thanks so much to Melinda Humphries Photography for inviting me to second shoot with her. The Georgian Terrace is my favorite hotel in Atlanta. It is so beautiful and historical. I enjoyed spending most of the day with the groom and his groomsmen. They were so fun. I loved how they had the most fun socks. The ceremony at First Presbyterian Church was gorgeous and definitely brought a tear to my eye. I adore watching two people so in love exchanging their vows. The reception space at the Georgian Terrace was in the Grand Ballroom. The decor was absolutely stunning and the couple, bridal party and guests had a wonderful time dancing the night away. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the wedding. I had so much and had so much fun capturing this beautiful day. Enjoy!
I was thrilled to head from Atlanta to Asheville for Amber & Dan's engagement session. I love Asheville because it is such a gorgeous, friendly city. It was where Amber & Dan became engaged so I was excited to recreate their engagement journey with my camera. We first visited the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar, which was where Dan proposed. This is a book lovers dream as it is stuffed with books and so fun to browse books while sipping on champagne or a literary themed cocktail. We may have visited more than once that weekend! We then went to one of Asheville's charming picture perfect streets tucked away behind colorful buildings. We ended up on a gorgeous private farm tucked away in a valley surrounded by mountains. I loved taking Dan and Amber’s engagement photos and seeing how in love and happy they are. I am so excited for their wedding this weekend in Savannah. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
Ashley and Chris are such a wonderful couple! I had so much fun photographing their engagement session. They are madly in love and just go together so well. We had so much fun laughing and taking photos in the beautiful outdoors. I am very excited for their September wedding. I know it is going to be an awesome day. I hope you enjoy these photos of the adorable lovebirds!
Whitney and Josh had an amazing wedding at Cator Woolford Gardens. It was beautiful and such a special wedding full of joy and love. Whitney had my mentor and amazing photographer Josh Lamkin as her wedding photographer. You can check it out here! She asked me to shoot the cocktail hour for her. I had a wonderful time capturing the gorgeous gardens full of happy people. It was held in a large grassy field and everyone really enjoyed themselves! I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I did taking them. I also added to the end of the post some photos I took during the wedding. Enjoy!
