Sara and Richie met six years ago at work.  Richie proposed last year atop a mountain in a snowstorm outside of Breckenridge, Colorado.

They were wed in a small garden in the town of Colbert.  The reception followed at 4th and 4th (the old mercantile). The florals were composed of white tulips and hydrangeas, cotton pods, peach and grey roses, magnolia leaves, leucadendron, pieris, seeded eucalyptus, dusty blue globe thistle, and burgundy scabiosa.

The eve of my 30th birthday was spent with these clients-and I’m so happy I decided to do so.  They throw a great party and are simply fun to be with.  It was double the celebration.

I was also introduced to this gorgeous, eclectic and vintage venue-owned by Ellyn Trinrud and her husband.  They have been avid designers and collectors for years and their space is stunning.  There’s talk of a balcony and a terrace next year.  Ellyn had an uncanny resemblance to Diane Keaton in her adorable menswear attire and her quirky personality.  Their home and venue is a work of art.

All were in tears when Sara came down the aisle, escorted by her father.

I love the turn of the century, daguerreotype portraits of Richie.  There are some fun dancing shots below and a black and white of the sweet couple, taken during their last dance.

Take in the beauty below and leave them some love!

Blessings to you both!

Special thanks to Kiersten Hammock for second shooting.

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!

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!!
