This shoot has literally been over a year in the making! Im so excited to share Margie and Drew, their beautiful love story, and such a fun shoot that I was beyond thrilled to work alongside the uber talented Molly McKinley as she styled such a lovely scene for us! Margie and Drew were our love story giveaway winners, and as I got to know them better, I can see how they were much deserved winners. There story is unique in that they both were going down completely different paths, different people, different places, and somehow their paths crossed, and ever since they were inseparable.
My favorite part of their story was a sailing trip across the world. With stops in South America all the way to New Zealand. Among the very many interesting stories they shared over our time together, I could have listened to them talk about this adventure until the sun went down. We practically did. So, their shoot was inspired around their sailing adventure. Though lake lanier isn't as vast as the ocean, it was still such a beautiful set for our shoot. I felt as if the whole thing was a dream, and how much I loved experiencing just a glimpse of something so amazing that they get say is part of the history together.
Well, all of this came together, and I am so excited to share the results. I hope you will be as enamored by the story as I was!
Margie and Drew, I know it is something I say a lot about my clients, but I am truly so thankful and feel so blessed to have met you both. I loved your kind of funny and you two truly do have the most amazing hearts. Thank you for letting me be a part of something so special! Happy Anniversary!
Thank you sweet Molly and Taylor for putting together such a fun vision! and thank you to Margie and Drew's sweet friends who shared their beautiful sailboat and sailed us into the sunset. ;)

When preparing for an engagement session, our hope is to create a session that allows the couple to say comfortable, focusing on things they love, taking an adventure, and hopefully capturing a glimpse into who they really are individually and as a couple. It is quite a task because unlike a wedding where things are naturally happening non-stop, and engagement session usually has it where I have to tell them what to do the whole time.
When Katie shared with me that Forest had proposed to her on their sailboat, the whole story sounds so romantic and sweet that it seemed to be a perfect setting for their engagement session. Katie shared with me.. "i had just gotten off of work, and was really tired, but he wanted to go sailing, so how could I say no to such a sweet man. Little did I know this little sailing trip would be the best day of my life..."
Katie and Forest, I had the best afternoon with you two. Thank you for treating me for a little sailing ride and glimpse into your love story! I know the wedding is going to be amazing, and looking forward to it in just over a month!! YAY!

This session was a perfect little picture of summer! I met Ellen and Dave at their favorite parks to hike with their puppy Cayenne, and no more then 5 minutes in, I could see exactly why it was their favorite. Spectacular views with a deep breath of fresh air, and two people who adore each other made for a perfect for an a summer evening.
Ellen and Dave, it was truly one of those sessions that was more fun than work and for that I have you two to thank!! Hope you enjoy these photos and certainly can not wait til the wedding!!

With nearly two shoots everyday for the last week, my body is feeling a little bit like I have been running a 5k. that good tired and sore. and with this week not over yet, im definitely pushing through to the finish line, with a happy satisfaction every time I check something off the list.
I am so excited to blog and share Emily and Sam with you. I met the two of them for the first time at their engagement session which always adds an extra element of wanting to get to know them while taking pictures. But, these two were a breeze to take pictures of, and I loved them together. So fun, light hearted, and adorable. They live in the loveliest yellow house right off the park. We enjoyed a lovely stroll and chatted about how they met, how Sam proposed at the botanical gardens, their wedding plans and how they get work together everyday.
Sam and Emily, thank you for such a fun afternoon. I loved getting to meet you both and lady, kitty, and turtle. Just from a small time together, I already know the wedding is going to be blast! Can't wait til April!

I am so excited to share my dear friends Katie and Ashley. I met Katie a few years ago while working a wedding together and have always just adored her floral creations. Since then, we have worked together at some of my favorite weddings, met for a many lunch dates, and some behind the scene flower making together. We have chatted about getting together for some photos of her and her sweetie for a long time. So, when their anniversary came around this time, it allowed for a perfect excuse for an impromptu shoot in their darling backyard with tons of hydrangea, a putting green, and a peach tree. Oh, did I mention a peach tree?! In their backyard? I had such a blast, and these two are truly some of biggest hearted, amazing people know. So, just too fun and such a joy to get use my camera to share these two hearts.
Oh, I did want to mention that there is a second half to this shoot that I am going to do a separate post for because of its amazingness it deserves its very own, so stayed tuned soon!
