Dawn & Darrell will be getting married this October, so I met up with them recently for an engagement session! We met early to avoid the heat, luckily we picked the perfect day – the first one after this recent oppressive heat wave. So no worries about sweat or makeup, etc., just good fun walking around Freedom Park capturing this awesome couple! Dawn brought along some great props for the session. She and Darrell are big football fans, but they are NFC South rivals in that one likes Atlanta and the other New Orleans! This made for some fun shots, they even had a football with their wedding date on it! After a change of cloths we moved around the park and got some great captures. I am in love with the warmth of these images. Here are a but a few from the session. I am looking forward to their wedding in October!

The summer wedding season continues and this week I am highlighting Shannon and Andy’s wedding at Firethorne Country Club.  Firethorne has the most amazing entrance for outdoor weddings!  Shannon and Andy were surrounded by so many of their family and friends, many of them traveling from long distances to be there to celebrate their marriage.  Shannon’s dress was so beautiful and she had the most amazing veil that made for some stunning images!  I really enjoy going out to Firethorne, as I am always able to capture very warm, rich, sun-washed images that just have “summer” written all over them.  As always, I wanted to capture the amazing surroundings, but I also wanted to document the intimacy of the moment and the love that Shannon and Andy have for one another. The wedding was awesome and the reception was one big party from start to finish!  Best wishes to Shannon and Andy, I was honored to spend the day with you two!  Congratulations!

What a great day it was for Lacey & Carlos’ wedding at Kingdom Hall and their reception at the Hotel Concord! Even though the day was super hot (We have had a stretch of 95+ degree days!), we got out and crafted some wonderful images of this great couple! Even before the ceremony, Lacey and Carlos had a “first look” where they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. I love first looks! It is a great time to capture those wonderful facial expressions when two people first lock eyes on one another on the biggest day of their lives.  So much anticipation and it is captured in that one moment!  I feel lucky to be apart of capturing that singular moment in time.  The images are so creamy, so silky, so natural with the trees in the background!  The love that Lacey and Carlos have for one another is easily seen in the selection of images from their first look, right through their ceremony and into their first dance as husband and wife.  Their reception at the Hotel Concord was so awesome!  It was elegant, romantic and the music was simply the best!  Congratulations Lacey and Carlos!  May your future be bright and prosperous together!

I am so happy to be presenting LeeAnna & Brian’s wedding today! You can see their very cool engagement session here. These two are among my favorite clients of all-time and they recently tied the know at Childress Vineyard!  What a cool wedding it was!  The weather was perfect and the skies were full of color that day.  LeeAnna and Brian’s love is very expressive in these photographs.  As I said in my post about their e-session, all you need to do is look at their faces to know what love is!  How cool is it that I get to be the one to record their wonderful wedding?!!  I love the purple of the skies as we walked through the vineyard, as well as the wonderful and dreamy look of the vines in the background.  The ceremony site was spectacular and I just love the close-ups of their faces as they see each other!  Their reception was fantastic and we all got to hear some pretty cool stories about these two!  Congratulations LeeAnna and Brian, I was honored to be at your wedding!
