What a beautiful day for 3 back-to-back engagement sessions at the gorgeous Turnipseed Nursery Farm in Fayetteville, GA! My new assistant Rebecca Silvernail and I got the chance to meet and photograph our newly engaged couples at this quaint little venue on Mother's Day.
Our first couple, Joanna & John drove from LaGrange to meet us for their morning engagement session. They have their wedding scheduled at Pine Mountain Club Chalets Resort in Pine Mountain, GA on 11/18/17. We can't wait to photograph their wedding this Fall! Here are a few sneak peeks from their session.
Up next was Desiree & Christopher, who came all the way from Columbus, GA for their session. They are getting married at the RiverMill Event Center in Columbus, GA on 10/7/17. Desiree also brought her mom, dad and brother along (it was her Mom and Dad's Anniversary as well!) and it was such a pleasure to get to meet some of her family before their wedding. Desiree and her mom met us at the SE Bride Love Tour (bridal show) where Desiree and Chris were modeling at another venue that was part of the tour. We look forward to your beautiful wedding this Fall as well!
Our final engagement session of the day was for Bracie and Jackson. They drove in from Valley, AL for their session. They have their wedding scheduled at Pine Mountain Club Chalets on 9/30/17. All of the couples were fun, easy-going and super cool to work with. I can honestly say Engagement Sessions are my jam! I love to meet with and get to know a little bit about each couple before their wedding day and it's also a great opportunity to give our clients some fun, casual images to use in their home, etc. Here are a few sneak peeks from their session.
I've got another fabulous wedding for you all today! The adorable couple consists of Cassidy & Cody Witt, two people that anyone would love to know.
Their wedding day was truly beautiful. From the centerpieces co-designed by Cassidy overflowing with beautiful flowers & greenery (Florist - Denham's) to the large bouquets and arrangements, bursts of color added to the stunning beauty of the Oakhurst Farm wedding venue. Cassidy's bridal gown was classic and beautiful with a corset back. Before Cody had a "first look", Cassidy shared a special moment with her Dad where he saw her in her gown first. Not a dry eye in the room!
They added their own special touch to the decor (a globe for guests to sign, cocktail hour where guests enjoyed yard games, groom's cake made by a family member, etc) as well as painting a "unity" canvas with gold and navy paint during their ceremony.
The party continued as the reception kicked off (DJ: Jerry Parker) and the glow sticks came out! A fun time was had by all! It was our pleasure to be able to capture images of such a special day for them. We truly wish only the best for you both in your life together, Mr. & Mrs. Witt!! Thank you for letting us share the day with you!

Kandace & Brett Dukes were joined in marriage at the lovely and newly-updated Barn at Dogwood Farms in Seale, AL on March 25th. This sweet couple chose us to photograph their wedding after attending his cousin's wedding in March 2016 (Tiffany & Adam Odell). It was such a pleasure being able to work with their family again and seeing the super sweet flowergirl (Kayli) again! Kayli schooled us on some new dance moves during the reception and was definitely a crowd pleaser!
Kandace was surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids in a lovely pastel pink and neutral colored dresses! A beautiful color palette against the newly painted white barn. The day couldn't have had better weather, such a sweet family and group of guests to share in this special day.
We look forward to hopefully working with their family again! It was great to see our past bride & groom (Tiffany & Adam Odell) and their baby boy too! Sharon and I wish Mr. and Mrs. Dukes a very happy and healthy marriage full of lots of laughter and love! Thanks again for letting us share and capture your day!
On March 18th, Sharon and I had the pleasure of meeting Autumn and Dillon at their vintage-chic-inspired wedding at the lovely Macon's Place wedding venue in Cataula, GA. The skies were overcast that day but luckily the rain held off for us the entire day! They had the prettiest little flower girls and sweetest family & friends gathered around them to celebrate their special day. So many personal touches were added from their decor (beautiful candle-lit lanterns & centerpieces, pastel floral arrangements, pearls, vintage accessories), a bible for guests to sign and leave their favorite scriptures, photo booth fun by Midtown Memories and especially their hand-carved cross which was displayed at the alter.
The couple chose to do a "first look" where they shared vows before seeing each other and sharing a special moment alone before their ceremony began. And I can tell you, I didn't hear what they were saying but I did SEE the emotion and happy tears which made this moment extra special. I'm so glad we got to capture this moment which they'll happily remember over the years. It brought tears to my eyes too!
The reception started shortly after family photos and the fun began with dancing! Everyone enjoyed seeing these two sweethearts join together in marriage and wishing them well on their next-day mission trip to Haiti. What a wonderful way to begin your married life in serving the Lord, giving your time, blessing those less fortunate and being together while you're there! God bless you both and Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of this special time in your lives!
Here are a few of our favorite images of the day...
We had a wonderful time at our first wedding of the year to celebrate the marriage of Halie and David Estes. The intimate ceremony and reception was held at The Barn at Dogwood Farm in Seale, AL on March 11, 2017. Halie and David invited their close family and friends to join them for a beautiful day on the farm.
I wanted to share a few sneak peeks from this gorgeous day. They had the most precious ring bearer and flower girl....and you could definitely tell the bride and groom were surrounded by love! BIG Thanks to Halie and David for allowing us to share and capture your special day for you.
