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!

Amber and Daniel's wedding was so wonderful! I was so excited for their wedding day as I had been anticipating it for over a year. I loved doing their engagement photos in Asheville and I was so thrilled for their Savannah wedding. And it was an absolutely gorgeous day! It was filled with so many beautiful and emotional moments from her dads tears as he saw her in her dress for the first time, Amber's emotion as she saw walked down the aisle to Daniel, the laughter during their vows and the wonderful up swelling of love and support from all of Amber and Daniel's friends and family. Amber was a stunningly beautiful bride and Daniel was so handsome and excited to marry his bride. The weather was perfect as they exchanged heartfelt vows in Madison Square. I am not sure there was a dry eye among the guests. I really enjoyed the family portrait time as these two families were so fun to hang out with. Amber and Daniel even were able to enjoy some of the cocktail hour after their couple portraits. The reception was an absolute blast with awesome music, dancing and amazing food. All the guests seemed to immensely enjoy the evening. I loved their beautiful magnolia wedding cake with the awesome bride and groom high fiving cake topper. Very Amber and Daniel! It was such a wonderful wedding day full of so much beauty, fun and sentimental moments. It was such an honor to photograph Amber and Daniel's wedding day. Here is the story of their day in photos. Enjoy!

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!
Katheryn and Aaron's wedding was a day full of joy, laughter, fun and emotion. The wedding was held at the Red Tin Barn in Carrollton, GA which is a beautiful, family run facility featuring a red barn and a 100 + year old oak tree. The rustic landscape made for absolutely stunning photos.
The day started with the girls getting their hair and makeup done at the farm house. Many laughs were heard as everyone bustled around preparing for the big day. The men were stationed in the barn and banned from coming near the farm house. Katheryn and Aaron had decided not to see one another before the ceremony so I did a bride and father first look instead of bride and groom. I absolutely loved the look on her dads face as he turned around and saw Katheryn in all her bridal beauty as the family watched from the front porch.
The ceremony was gorgeous and meaningful as Katheryn and Aaron exchanged vows written by them under the 100 + year old oak tree. There were a lot of tears in the audience during the ring exchange and special sand ceremony.
After spending some time taking family, wedding party and bride and groom photos under the oak tree and in the beautiful fields everyone headed on the trolley to the barn for introductions and first dances. All wedding guests and the happy couple had so much fun at the reception and not even the heavens opening up and gushing rain could put a damper on this amazing wedding. Katheryn, Aaron and their guests danced the night away as DJ Q-Tip kept the awesome music coming and guests savored the delicious cake from Catering by Josh. The couple dashed away at the end of the evening for a sparkler exit even as the rain poured down. The smiles on their faces said it all about the amazing day they had just experienced.
Congratulations Katheryn and Aaron. It was wonderful to be a part of your beautiful day and capture your love and joy!

I had an absolute blast taking Sarah and Billy's engagement photos at Cochran Mill Park in Chattahoochee Hills. They are so cute together and so in love! They were awesome as we had to do lots of walking to get to these amazing spaces. This park was absolutely perfect with so many hidden places to take photos. It was a perfect day and I am really looking forward to photographing their November wedding in Blue Ridge, GA!
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!
