Colleen & Brian

Colleen & Brian are getting married next April. We went out for their engagement session a few weeks ago and had the time of our lives.

They were very relaxed and enjoyed the day as we went along. And after a couple of outfit changes and different locations, we ended up with some neat images that I hope they will treasure forever.

I honestly have to say I love what I do and I really enjoy working with such great clients.

Here are some images from their session.

Thanks a lot for coming out to play with me. I just can't wait until April is here. I know it will be a beautiful affair and feel honored to be a part of such a time in your lives!

Family Time

These are Casey, Stephanie, Kylie and Mackenzie. Casey is an amateur photographer, and a serious one at that! So when he asked me to photograph his family I was very flattered and excited.

We decided to spend some time at Autrey Mill and allow the girls to have some fun while being photographed. It was actually a very cute session.

Kylie loved to be in front of the camera...

...while Mackenzie was more interested in seeing what interesting things she could stick in her mouth :)

...or running away from the rest of the family.

I love this playful family moment.

Did I mention she loves the camera? Of course her dad has her "trained"!

I love the outfits Stephanie picked for them.

Of course, Casey & Stephanie got their time alone also… almost like newlyweds.

Thanks Casey & Stephanie for allowing me to capture this time in your lives!

Martha-Collins & Andrew - Engaged!

Martha-Collins is a sorority sister and friend of two brides we have photographed in the last year. She and her fiancé Andrew are both from Macon, GA but have been going to school in different cities for the past several years. Andrew is now on his first year of law school at UGA and he does not have much free time... so we all trotted over to Athens to do their engagement session a few weekends ago.

We have never met officially, although Rich and I perfectly well remembered Marta-Collins as the girl with the brightest "Oh-My-God!" expression as she caught the bouquet at Beth Ann's wedding this past July -- Little did she know she would actually get engaged just a few days after that!

So we decided to meet for coffee and chat for a few minutes and then headed on to the UGA campus to have some fun. And we can attest, we did. They really played and enjoyed the day and gave us many opportunities for great candid images and fabulous captured moments.

Considering it was supposed to rain pretty badly that day I would say we got really lucky and had a most wonderful day!

Check out a few of their images...

Thanks Martha-Collins and Andrew. It was great fun and we loved working with you. Is June here yet?

Taylor & Travis are married!

Taylor and Travis got married in Atlanta on a very rainy day.

However, the weather did not dampen their spirits. They were both in a great mood, focused on the real meaning on the day, and to have their families and friends with them.

Taylor got ready at home with her "girls" and some mimosas. She was enjoying each moment and relaxed...

...until she stepped outside and saw the limo waiting to take her to the church and it all hit home.

They guys got ready at the home of Travis' best man (who is also his uncle) and it looks like they had some fun.

Taylor looks gorgeous!

The ceremony was at the beautiful Holy Spirit Catholic Church.

I love this image of them walking out that Rich took from the balcony.

What can I say... they were just so happy and it showed!

Now, one of my favorite things... check out the bride's shoes (her "something blue") waiting outside the church for the limo to take them to the reception.

The reception was at the Piedmont Garden Tent, which looked absolutely amazing. Check out the fabulous arrangements created by Shoshona of Shosho Designs.

And a super fun cake from Lulu's Bakery.

Like I said, they did not mind the rain a bit...

Here is the first dance.

And I love the emotion from the father-daughter and mother-son dances.

The toasts were emotional...

...and fun!

And yes, that crowd did party!

Taylor & Travis did not do a formal exit. They wanted to stay behind and hang out with their guests, most of whom had traveled from Pennsylvania. But I couldn't resist grabbing a last shot of them with the backdrop of the city.

Of course this was just a small sneak peak... for a true overview for their day, please see their slideshow.

Thanks to both of you. Rich and I truly enjoyed sharing this time in your lives. It was such a wonderful wedding filled with so much heart and we hope that you can forever remember those moments through our images.
