Kelly and Caroline Jackson Wedding | Tucker Plantation Smithonia Farm | Colbert, GA



I second shot for Kaitie Bryant in Athens.  I love, love second shooting because it allows me to explore candids, details, and artistic shots without all the pressure for getting the shot.

Lawty and Maggie Stephens Wedding | The Foundry | Athens, GA

This sweet couple was wed this past Saturday evening at The Foundry.

They’ve known one another their whole lives.  Began dating at the end of high school at prom and have been together ever since.

 There are several heirloom pieces that Maggie wore.  Maggie and Lawty wrote sentiments about one another before the vows were recited.   The dinner was a classic southern meal.  The departed with friends and family to sparklers and rode off in a 1920′s car!

I have enjoyed getting to know this authentic and sincere bride and groom!  You’ve made your photographs beautiful!

Blessings to you newlyweds!

Russell and Anissa Goeken Wedding | Savannah, GA

The bride and groom were wed on a water front property on Wilmington Island in Savannah.  They are dear friends of mine that had a gorgeous wedding!  The ceremony was at in the afternoon and the light reflected off of the water and filtered through the trees was gorgeous.  Anissa wore a stunning Vera Wang gown.  I loved the whimsical moments and, yet, so sophisticated.

Sidenote:  This wedding was published in the knot!

Here is an excerpt from their page by Carrie Chambers:

The Bride Anissa Manzo, a floral and graphic designer at Urban Poppy Wedding
The Groom Russell Goeken, photographer at Russ Photos and window cleaner at Soap on a Rope
The Date October 10 A Tiffany-blue and poppy-red palette inspired the garden wedding celebration with a bit of vintage flair. Anissa wanted to support other artists, so she chose gifts and accessories from her favorite Etsy shops.”
