This past September, we had the honor of working with Margaret Ellen Bridal on 30A to photograph their entire bridal gown lookbook. It was a photoshoot out of our dreams!

Marie + Chris traveled all the way from Nevada to elope in their favorite city - New Orleans, Louisiana. Bringing only their two best friends along with them, (and the bride's amazing red-bottom Christian Louboutin's OF COURSE), we all hopped in a fancy limousine and headed across the river to the beautiful Algiers Courthouse. After the couple said "I do", we explored around the French Quarter for more photos and ended the day in the best way we knew how -- ordering delicious beignets at the iconic Cafe Du Monde for the bride & groom's slice of cake! The day was so simple, all about the love between these two, and it couldn't have been more perfect for them. If you know me, you know I LOVE a sweet & simple elopement!
Lindsey and Mike know how to throw one amazing wedding party. After meeting them during their engagement session, I knew the wedding was going to be spectacular. And then to find out they would be having Brooke Casey (my personal favorite) as their wedding coordinator, I knew it would be a dream come true kind of day. What I didn't know, was how much love and excitement their family and friends would bring to top off the icing on the cake. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were equally one of a kind friends. I could tell by the moment I walked into the bride's suite as each bridesmaid was so attentive to helping Lindsey in whatever she needed. And not to mention, her glass of champagne was never close to empty! From their first look all the way to the second line parade, there wasn't a moment that went by lacking a heartfelt expression. Congratulations again to these two newlyweds!
On their wedding day, one year would be coming to a close while a new year beginning. It's almost like their love for each other, as it refreshes and becomes new with each day and the passing of time. A new year, a new marriage, and a new life together for these two as the clock struck midnight. Daniel was all smiles, especially when he saw his bride walking down the aisle. Shiloh looked back at him with excitement beaming in her eyes, viewing him in a new light. With confetti flying, toots whistling, music playing, and kisses abound, Shiloh and Daniel tied the knot on New Years Eve. We couldn't think of a happier way to ring in the New Year than celebrating a genuine and true love!
When Liz and Alex reached out to me about being there to capture their wedding day, I knew there was no way I could miss it...even if it was a couple of states away. They were, after all, one of the first couples to book me for their engagement session after moving to New Orleans last year. When I showed up on the day of their wedding, Liz was refreshed and nervous yet so incredibly excited to marry the love of her life that she was beaming with light. It was like you could almost hear her heart pitter-patter. Alex showed nothing but composure knowing he would soon be a husband to his dream girl. As the families gathered and mingled, it was beautiful to watch the two become one. Many emotions were conveyed, the most significant being that of pure tenderness. We couldn't be happier for these two and to nothing thrills me more than becoming friends with my clients! Congratulations again to these two extraordinary souls!
Tina and Damian have been longtime friends of ours, so when she asked me to come to Atlanta to photograph their wedding I was of course, ecstatic! She told me that they would be getting married on the two year anniversary of their engagement and it would be a very intimate ceremony in a park near their home. The whole thing was very fitting for the two of them. I showed up to the house and Tina was as calm as ever, helping Gabriella put on her darling little shoes. When we arrived at the park, Damian was all smiles, as per usual. His energy is always vivacious, but on that day it was on another level. He would soon be marrying a most elegant and bright lady. After a few tears and cheers, these two became one on a golden summer's day in the park.
Congratulations again to these two beautiful souls!

A venue filled with artist installations is always bound to make for a beautiful wedding, and this one was nothing short of exactly that. Christy and Jesse share a both stunning and classic look. They were both so easy going and calm on their special day, which made for extra special photographs! Cheers to the newlyweds!
