Lauren + Brendon | Buckeyes Plantation Wedding in Jersey, Ga.

Bride and Groom-36.jpg

It’s such a blessing to get work with incredible clients and their family’s too! I can’t thank God enough for blessing me with this talent that I get to share. It brings me so much joy and I hope my clients get to share in the joy of relieving their beautiful day through these images.

As I drove up to Buckeyes Plantation, Lauren’s childhood home, I could feel the energy and the calm all at the same time! The bustle of the vendors as they were working away at preparing the decor, the calm from the bridesmaids and groomsmen as they were keeping their cool for their best friends, Lauren and Brendon. They have the sweetest friends and family and you could feel the love!

Brendon and Lauren, I’m so very happy for you two! I know you’ve waited a long time for this day and what an incredible day it was!! Every detail was beautiful. Thank you for having me as your photographer!

I wish you two the best!!

Beth and Cory | Starrsville Plantation, Covington, Ga. Wedding

I’m so excited for Cory and Beth! Their big day was just perfect! It was a hot one but. you wouldn’t even know it by looking at these two. They were radiant and their love for one another just shined through!

We met Beth in the bridal suite of the main house at Starrsville Plantation where her sweet momma helped her get in her gown and then Cory surprised her with a beautiful gift that she wore down the aisle.

Beth asked us if we would take Cory a surprise too! We headed down the hall to find him getting ready with his guys. Cory and Beth both wrote each other very touching love notes and they each took the time to read them quietly to themselves. It was so beautiful to witness their emotions during that special time.

ALL the first looks had me, AND more importantly, Beth in tears!! From Beth’s first look with her ladies, to her and Cory and then her and her daddy. . .my oh my!! So many sweet tears.

Beth and Cory, I know beautiful things are in store for you both!! Congratulations guys!!

Lacey + Matt | Lazy Acres Wedding Day Mansfield, Ga.

There are so many wonderful things about this day, about this couple, about their love story. I want to share a little back story before I tell you more about them. . . I ended up getting really sick the day before THEIR big day. I cried and was so upset that this happened right before their wedding day. I thought I had the flu. They are the sweetest people and have amazing family’s. I was terrified I would be too sick the day of their wedding and would completely let them down due to my lack of energy. So, what did I do? I prayed! And I also, asked for others to pray for me.

I woke up that next morning and, while I didn’t feel 100%, I did feel somewhat better. As we arrived at the James Madison Inn to begin photographing Lacey, it’s like a wave of comfort and energy came over me. All my senses started perking up, it was GO TIME! I walked in to Lacey’s suite to see her there, looking completely flawless in her satin white robe, hair pinned back and stunning makeup! She greeted me with her big Lacey smile and a warm hug! I was so thrilled to see her and serve them on this very special day!

Lacey and Matt have a very beautiful love story that dates back before they were even born. Lacey and Matt’s mothers are best friends. They raised their babies together, they laughed together, they suffered loss together and they prayed together. Through the thick and thin of life they have overcome so much and raised the sweetest people!

These two have such a special bond that most people don’t get to have with their spouses. . .they grew up together and now they get to grow old together. Isn’t it amazing how God’s plan is always bigger and better than anything we could ever dream up?

I am so happy for this couple! Please give them a huge congratulations!

Logan + Tyler | Starrsville Plantation Wedding

social_circle_maternity_photographers_0118.jpg

Y’all, I am so fortunate to get to do what I love and work with amazing couples like Logan and Tyler! I met Logan last October at Elizabeth and Dalton’s wedding. Elizabeth is her best friend! We had a blast at their wedding surrounded by their best friends and family! They are so supportive and loving towards one another and you could just feel the love. It wasn’t any different at Logan and Tyler’s wedding - the love was there too.

When I first arrived at their wedding I met Logan’s friend Mary Catherine in the parking lot - she’s so sweet!! As I walked to the back of the main house to start photographing details, I was then greeted by Logan’s best friend and my past bride, Elizabeth! Big Hugs and comments about hair sprayed hair for the second time in less than a year for her! lol Once I got into the house and made my way to Logan - she was getting her hair and makeup all done up. She looked gorgeous and wasn’t even in her dress yet!

The laughter and fun just never ends with these friends! Logan & Tyler, Congratulations! I am so happy for you two and I hope you are having the best time on your honeymoon!
