All of these recent engagement sessions leave me feeling extra excited about the weddings which will follow!

I am loving the colors and vibe of Whitney and Andrew’s session! These two definitely brought plenty of love and a little magic to make these photos so beautiful.

They chose to do a garden session at Cator Woolford Gardens here in town, and I am so happy they did. It fit their style perfectly!

Whitney and Andrew are officially newlyweds and I cannot wait to share photos from their big day.

2019 is sneaking up fast! If you are looking to book your engagement session or wedding, contact me today. 

I love being able to meet amazing people through photography. I get to hear stories of how couples met and witness them saying “I do”.  I get to capture memories for growing families that they will treasure for years to come. Needless to say, I love what I do.

 

Among those amazing people I get to meet and work with, there are always some who really stand out. Stacy and Nick without a doubt fall into that category.

 

I’ve only known Stacy for a short time, but I was honored to be in the presence of such a kind and generous soul. She truly has a heart of gold. Nick is her perfect match, with his endless support and warm personality.

 

These two met back in high school, but it wasn’t until close to a decade later that they started dating! You would’ve thought these two were two young kids in love, the way they laughed and smiled throughout their entire session. Their bond and love for each other are undeniable.

 

Stacy and Nick’s engagement photos were taken at Piedmont Park. It was their first time to this legendary park, and I was so glad I was able to show them around while capturing amazing photos! They will be getting married at Lake Chatuge in 2019 and I am already pumped for the amazing views to be had from their mountain lake wedding.

Lela and Chris’ engagement session was filled with so many photography wins. To start, these two were so great to work with. They were comfortable with each other in front of the camera and helped keep everything relaxed.

Pro Tip: When couples are engaged in conversation, it allows for real emotions to be caught. It also allows for those nerves to settle a bit if you are camera shy!

Location is important and I am always looking for somewhere unique. Downtown Roswell and the historic shop windows created the most perfect yet subtle backdrop for these photos.

I have mentioned the importance of lighting before and this session is a prime example of why I love that golden hour (1 hour before sunset). There’s no worry of odd shadows or squinty eyes, just soft light and a natural glow. Simply perfect.

Lela and Chris brought their sweet fur baby, Shepard, to join in on a few photos as well!

Pro Tip: Any couple thinking of bringing their fur baby along should take note from these two. Chris’ mom came along to watch Shepard while they finished up their session. Makes things easier for everyone involved!

It was a pleasure working with Lela and Chris! I am excited about their wedding this Fall at Primerose Cottage. Check back for highlights of their big day!

 

Meet Paul and Christina! We first met in person when we did their engagement session a few months back. We were originally scheduled on a different day, but Mother Nature had her plan… and we were rained out. Luckily, time was on our side and when we rescheduled, the weather was perfect for shots.

We even got a GREAT photo of them and their 6-year-old son smiling:-)

Fast forward to Saturday, June 2. Christina and Paul wed in the chapel of their home church, McEachern Methodist. Christina looked stunning in her Oleg Cassini wedding dress and Paul looked so handsome in his Military Blues. Pause… Paul, THANK YOU for your service!

They didn’t see each other before the ceremony, so we got to take some beautiful shots of them just after two became one!

Sunflower accents were perfectly positioned on their wedding invitation, bride’s bouquet, and wedding cake!

The beautiful desert reception was held at The Event Station, just down the road. It was perfect. Paul even had me tearing up during his welcome speech!

Congratulations you two! I’m so very happy for you. You two truly are the perfect blend!

Pat had been planning to ask Lindsay to marry him for a while. They’ve been together for years, so he was just waiting for the perfect opportunity. That opportunity happened to be during a Georgia snowstorm! The power went out, and Pat took Lindsay into the snow, dropped to his knee and asked her to marry him. Of course, she said, “YES!”

I have a special connection with Lindsay, because I’ve known her since she was a little girl. I was classmates with her older brother, Bobby, from 4th grade through college. So, I got the chance to watch her grow into the beautiful woman and bride-to-be that she is now! To make it even more special, they plan on getting married shortly after Valentine’s Day next year at the same venue my husband and I were married. The Primrose Cottage in Historic Downtown Roswell is a great choice, in my opinion!

I’m so excited for the both of you! Thank you for asking me to capture your engagement photos at Marietta Square!

 

 

Meet Brittany and Craig. 

These two love birds met well before college, but ended up dating when they were at UGA. Craig proposed at Piedmont park, so it was only fitting that we took their engagement photos there.

Here are some of my favorites from their session.

 

Just as we were about to leave, we found some trees in bloom and took advantage:-)

Their wedding will be this fall at Primrose Cottage in Historic Roswell.

Kevin and Mallory have known each other for years. This romance started as your typical “guy meets girl… guy falls for girl… girl puts guy in the friend zone… for years… until she realizes he is perfect for her” story! The two finally got together and on April 2, 2016, Kevin took Mallory to Piedmont park for a picnic. He proposed and the rest is history.

Today, we ventured out to Piedmont Park to take photos at the same place Mallory said, “YES” back in April. Congrats you two! I’m so thankful to call you my friends and to capture this time in your life!

 

 

 

 

I’m so thrilled that Bret and Katie asked me to capture their engagement portraits. The couple met while working part-time jobs in high school and have been together ever since. We took photos at the Historic Roswell Mill and then made our way for some adventures downtown. Here are my favorites!

The day FINALLY CAME… and I had the honor of photographing it! A great friend of mine proposed to the most perfect girl. Adam and Jillian were taking a walk like they normally do, but this one was truly one they would both remember forever. As they were walking through Lenox Park, they stopped to take a look at the lake. Jillian didn’t know it yet, but Adam was about to ask her the most important question of her life. Of course she said yes!

Congratulations Adam & Jillian! I am so incredibly happy for you both!

Big THANK YOU goes out to my friend Alli, who referred Lauren to me:-)

Lauren and Spencer are high school sweethearts and are getting married June 1st, 2013 in Saint Simons Island. Since they’ll be having a beautiful beach wedding, they wanted some Fall/Winter photos for their engagement pictures. Lauren recommended we meet at the Paper Mill Ruins at Sope Creek. This was my first time shooting here and it was lovely! The couple was perfect too, so in love and happy around each other. I had a blast with them. Enjoy!

 

Josh and Kylie are from Anderson, Indiana. They have been talking about marriage for a while now, but on a Tuesday morning, Josh woke Kylie up at 5 a.m. letting her know that her poor friend Bunburry – at the Georgia Aquarium – was sick (it’s a reference to the play Importance of Being Earnest in which the code for ‘shirking responsibility to go play’ is ‘my poor friend Bunburry is sick.’)  They jumped on a plane at 8 a.m. and were in Atlanta within two hours.

Kylie’s favorite animal of all time has always been the buluga whale.  So, they drove over to the aquarium were we enjoyed the interactive beluga whale exhibit. Shortly after, they drove to Piedmont park.  After walking around for a while, Josh found the perfect spot to pop the question. He pulled out a cd player – in a similar way he had done on the night of their first kiss. After dancing for a little while, Josh got down on one knew and popped the question.  Kylie cried and said yes of course!

Here’s a twist, I was at Piedmont Park doing a photo shoot for a friend. We saw all of the excitement, captured the moment and now Josh and Kylie have pictures of one of the most amazing moments in their lives!
