Rachel + Johnny | Harper Fowlkes House Wedding

Some of my favorite moments at a wedding are the smallest ones. The the loving glance between a mother and her daughter. The groom’s hand on the small of his new wife’s back as they chat with their friends. The bride glancing down at her wedding ring with a smile on her face. Old friends hugging tightly, reunited. The groom reaching over to wipe a tear from his wife’s cheek during the toasts. Rachel + Johnny’s wedding was full of these small moments. It was an intimate gathering of their closest friends and family, and their reception dinner in the dining room of the Harper Fowlkes House felt like the best Thanksgiving dinner ever–a time when family comes together over delicious food to just love each other and celebrate all the good things in life.

stacey + tj |tybee pier sunrise engagement

When planning an engagement session, I always ask my clients what they like to do for fun together, because often that will help us pick a shoot location that’s perfectly them. Stacey + TJ told me that they love to watch the sunrise together on Tybee, and I knew right then that I was going to adore their engagement session. There is nothing prettier than sunrise light over the water, and I’m so glad they were game to chase some lovely light with me. After we spent some time with our toes in the sand and the sun on our hair, we headed downtown to Reynolds Square, to the spot where they got engaged! It was the perfect place for a few more smiles, hugs, kisses, and laughter…and we were even joined by some special guests right at the end of the shoot. You’ll have to scroll down to see… <3

Hannah + Mason | Daffin Park Engagement

To say I loved everything about the afternoon I spent with Hannah + Mason for their engagement session would be an understatement. It was simply perfect–the location, the light, the laughter, and most of all…the love. You can see it in the way Mason looks at Hannah. You can see it in Hannah’s smile. You can feel it when their arms are wrapped around each other. It’s the sweetest of loves, and as much as I adored their engagement session, I know it’s going to be even more special to capture their love at their wedding this summer.

alex + ricky | savannah engagement

There is nothing I love more than a sweet Savannah engagement session, and Alex and Ricky’s session was about as “Savannah” as you can get. From Wormsloe to Oglethorpe Square, from Factor’s Walk to River Street, and from brick buildings to Broughton Street…we covered it all! And if all the prettiness wasn’t enough, I also spent the whole shoot laughing my head off with these two lovely people. Alex and Ricky never stopped smiling and giggling, and you can see in their photos how much they enjoy spending time together. I can’t WAIT for their Oglethorpe Square and Soho South Cafe wedding this fall! <3

misty + shayne | engaged

It’s exactly one month until Misty + Shayne’s wedding at Woodlawn Plantation, and I’m getting SO excited!! I first met this sweet couple last fall when we did their engagement shoot, and I absolutely adore the two of them. It makes me so happy when my couples are the kind of people I would be friends with even if I wasn’t shooting their wedding. We had the best time wandering around downtown Savannah for their engagement shoot, and I think I laughed more during that shoot than any other. Misty and Shayne have a blast together no matter what they are doing, and you can tell that they are going to enjoy a long life together filled with fun, laughter, and love. P.S. How uh-mazing is Misty’s flower crown?? Her super talented sister made it for her the morning of the shoot. #mindblown

rosa + matt | pulaski square elopement

What’s better than getting married? Getting married twice (to the same person) of course! I had the honor of photographing Rosa and Matt’s intimate legal ceremony in Pulaski Square a couple of months ago, and it was the prettiest, most perfect day to say “I do.” Then you may have seen photos I posted on social media from a black tie wedding I attended a couple of weeks ago at the Cathedral here in Savannah–well, that was Rosa and Matt’s religious ceremony! So I got to be both guest and photographer, witnessing their commitment to each other twice, from two different perspectives. It was just the best way to celebrate two of my sweet friends starting their lives together. <3

valerie + kenny | a story of hope

When Valerie and Kenny pitched their idea to do a Lois Lane/Superman-themed shoot at sunrise on an empty parking deck overlooking the Orlando skyline, I just thought it was an awesome location and a sweet way to incorporate Kenny’s love of Superman into their engagement shoot. But I didn’t actually know until after the shoot was over that there is a much deeper meaning behind the “S” on Kenny’s chest. I’ll let Kenny tell you the rest… What does the “S” stand for?

valerie + kenny | portofino and picnic engagement

‘ve known Valerie since high school, when we were going to the same church–but we really solidified our friendship when we both ended up attending the University of Florida for college. I was just a little baby freshman when Val was a junior, and she quickly became my Bible study leader, mentor and friend. In the years since then, we’ve made a point to catch up with each other every year or two, and while we talk about allll sorts of things (you should SEE us talk…we can go for hours!), the conversation inevitably always turned back to guys. Who we were dating, who we had previously dated, who we wished we were dating…and when our future husbands would walk into our lives. So when Valerie told me earlier this year that Kenny was the real deal–that she knew he was the one and he would be proposing any day now–I was over the moon excited for my sweet friend. She found her person, and there really aren’t many things better than that in life. I’m SO excited to be shooting Valerie and Kenny’s wedding next month, and we had a ridiculous amount of fun shooting their engagement photos a couple of weekends ago in Orlando. Val and Kenny put a ton of thought into the locations and outfits for their shoot, and I think the result was just stunning. From the Portofino Resort (where they had their first date AND got engaged) to a picnic at the lake behind their ceremony venue…it was all so THEM.

Jessica + Mike | Cha Bella Wedding | Savannah, GA

When you are a wedding photographer in a destination wedding location like Savannah, often your couples don’t live here and you don’t get to actually meet them in person until the wedding day. But with Jessica and Mike, it didn’t matter in the slightest that we had only spoken over the phone–it felt like greeting an old friend the minute I walked into the hotel room where Jessica and her girls were getting ready.
