Allison & Aaron :: The Wedding

Some of you may remember Allison & Aaron… I had the pleasure of shooting a few big milestones in their relationship… Aaron’s surprise proposal at Big Canoe, their engagement at Mt. Berry College Campus and now their wedding!  When Aaron first reached out to find a photographer for his proposal, to be honest… I got so excited that a man was making all these sweet plans, that I just couldn’t help but to want to be a part of it.  If anything, I was just excited to be in the presence of such an amazing moment and was even more honored to be chosen to capture some memories for these two.

What at the time seemed to have been just a proposal, turned into documentary of Allison & Aaron’s love story… I traveled down to Tallahassee, Florida for their stunning Southwood Plantation Wedding.  Allison & Aaron’s wedding day was one for the books… they had gorgeous weather, a perfect venue and an unforgettable evening with their closest family and friends.

Enjoy some of my favorites from their day!

Jodi & Chase :: The Wedding

This is such a special post today for me as Jodi is part of my family and I was so humbled to be asked to be even a small part of her and Chase’s wedding.

The entire day I couldn’t help myself but to feel so honored to capture Jodi & Chase’s Wedding day and I couldn’t have imagined it any different.  God literally opened the skies and poured down rain all the way until their ceremony and reception when the sky cleared and we got to capture some beautiful moments with the fall trees and family outside!  Here’s just a few of my favorites from their day…

Terri & Mike :: The Wedding

I’m so excited to share Terri & Mike’s wedding from last weekend.  I’ve known Terri for years and was so happy to be a part of her and Mike’s wedding day.  It was the perfect fall day, with all their family and friends surrounding them… they tied the knot at sunset at the Meadow Wood Manor and then partied the rest of the night away.  Enjoy just a few of my favorites from the day!

Allison & Aaron :: Engaged & In Love

I met Aaron and Allison for the first time the day Aaron proposed to Allison a few months ago.  Aaron got in contact with me through a mutual friend and I was so impressed by all the thought that he put into his proposal!  Shooting surprise proposals may actually be one of my favorite things to capture.

These two are the absolute sweetest and are so in love with one another that it makes photographing them so easy and natural.  And they even brought along their pup Doak who almost stole the show!  Allison & Aaron, thank you for allowing me to capture the love that you have for one another… I can’t wait for your wedding in the spring!

Below are some of my favorites from our engagement session up at the beautiful Berry College, in Rome, Georgia.  Enjoy!

Alison & Dave :: The Wedding

Alison & Dave tied the knot last weekend on a beautiful fall day!  I couldn’t get over how perfectly the decor that Alison chose for the wedding matched the season.  Alison and Dave have been dating for a while, so this was a long time coming and you could just see how excited everyone was to finally see them get married!

They said their vows under an evening sky and partied the night away with their closest family and friends.

Alison & Dave, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this special day for you both… I hope you two enjoy reliving the day through the photos below!
