Caroline & Daniel’s Portrait Session – Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA

I had the pleasure of photographing Caroline and Daniel’s Tuscaloosa, AL Engagement Session and Birmingham, AL Wedding several years ago. We had the best time together! After the wedding, they moved to Atlanta for Daniel’s job. Earlier this year I got an email from them asking me to photograph them with their pup at Piedmont Park to document a city that’s now also part of their story. How sweet is that?! I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I’m thankful they want me to keep capturing milestones in their lives because they really are the sweetest! And, we were blessed with some amazing fall color in the park that day.

It’s in the [Wedding] Details

Oh how I love to shoot the details that define each of my bride’s unique and beautiful style. Before the wedding day, I remind all of my brides to bring everything to the getting ready location, so that I can shoot it when I arrive. A bride’s perfume, invitation suite, programs, notes, gifts, jewelry, shoes, garters, and handkerchief are thoughtfully curated and begged to be remembered as part of the wedding day story. It’s also a great idea to set aside lingerie, so I can style it lying on a chair or on the bed to be photographed before the bride puts it on. Pets are family and also an important part of the story I try to include when I can. Often, it’s a family dog, but sometimes it’s the horse the bride grew up riding from childhood.

In addition to the personal and paper details, the floral, cake and reception design set the tone for the day. There’s always a “wow” moment thanks to the talented planners who meticulously think through every important element with our brides. This post features some of the loveliness I’ve photographed over the years. Hope you enjoy. And, what a pleasure it is to work with the planners featured and listed at the end of this post.

Montaluce Winery Wedding [Published in The Knot]

I’m so excited to share this amazing Montaluce Winery wedding I photographed as second shooter for my friend Jana Sobel of 205 Photography, that has been published on The Knot. Jana and I often second shoot for each other, so it’s no surprise we had the best time capturing this beautiful destination wedding together. The winery is located in Dahlonega, Georgia, but we felt like we had been transported to Napa. It was breathtaking! You’ll have to forgive me for the long post, but I had so many favorite images from Heather and Farron’s day.  The location, light and details were all so dreamy. Best wishes to the happy couple!
