MR AND MRS JANSEN | WEDDING | THE CONSERVATORY AT WATERSTONE | ATLANTA, GEORGIA

This couple with this grand exit!
Caroline and Taylor met at “Towne View Baptist Church when they were four years old. Their relationship began to grow through multiple trips to the playground. Or so they’re told”. They were best friends throughout high school.  And began dating dating their freshman year of college.
From Caroline, “we’ve been so blessed to grow with each other in this relationship and Taylor really is a constant source of love and encouragement to me. He proposed at his home in Birmingham last August and asked me to be his wife before whisking me away to a surprise engagement party where we celebrated with all of our family!” 
Their story culminates in this fabulous wedding.
Caroline wore blue lace shoes.  The colors were tones of blues, peaches, and pinks.  At the ceremony, they took communion together with their friends and family as their first act of marriage.  I loved the look of adoration Taylor followed Caroline with (that man is smitten with his bride).  The reception had lush florals, good food, and lots of dancing.  These essentials set the scene for a lot of fun and joy and celebration for the evening following their ceremony.
Blessings to you both!

Special thanks to Greta Reynolds for second shooting!

Carley Simmons and Graham Sibley | Piedmont Park and Hendershots | Atlanta and Athens | Engagement

These two beautiful people.

I dare you not to like this couple.  They have tender hearts that permeated our session.

Last week I travelled to Atlanta to photograph their engagement session.  Turns out, we both went to different Octanes.  Who knew there were two??!

Probably you ATL folk  It worked out for the best.  We got the Atlanta skyline and some of Athens ambiance in two sessions, instead of one.

Their session features some geometric Taqueria lines, some soft and airy black and whites, coffee, and love.  Thrilled to be their photographer and looking forward to their wedding next year!!

KAYLEIGH AND ALAN | Engagement Session | Leon’s | Mac McGee | Kimball House | Decatur, GA

I travelled to Decatur to photograph Alan and Kayleigh’s engagement session this past week.

They’re apartment is located in the heart of Decatur.  We shared a mutual love for music and food and sci-fi!

Kayleigh wore her grandmother’s jewelry.  I loved this sentiment.  The shoot had hints of Wes Anderson (note the symmetry, vintage look, and pops of color).  It also features a lot of the urban landscape in Decatur-this town is almost perfect.  Think Athens, but more populated and in Atlanta’s backyard.

Our locations mostly consisted of happy hour restaurants-Decatur square, Mac McGee, and Leon’s.  We ended our happy hour shoot at the Kimball House for oysters (their attention to detail is lovely-great little spot if you’re looking for a well-served meal or a glass of wine).

This is such a fun and sweet couple.  They’re set to be wed next year at Ashford Manor and I am so excited to be their photographer!
