Sigh…Berry College…my alma mater and namesake of BerryTree Photography!  I LOVE this place!  It is seriously one of the most beautiful places on earth.  What I love best about it photography wise is that I think I could shoot there forever and never have to use the same locations twice!  For this engagement session we start out at the oh so popular picture taking spot…Swan Lake.  I don’t normally shot here, but this is where Kelsey and Will got engaged…right there at that little swing.   So sweet!  Swan Lake has beautiful swans…and mean ducks!  You’ll see what I mean!  I had a traumatic experience with one of them trying to kill me in college…so I usually avoid the lake at all costs…but…for the sake of pictures!  Next…a little more rural/rustic side of Berry…and my favorite shots from the day!  I feel like I’m in another country when I look at these pictures…the scenery there is to die for!  And the deer…oh my!  Ok…picture time!  Had a blast with you Will and Kelsey!  Enjoy your images!

One of the incredible perks of my job is getting to travel.  Last year I got to shoot weddings in Maine and San Diego.  Coming up on the books are weddings in Pennsylvania and Oregon.  And Josh and Sara asked me to be a part of their special day in Las Vegas!!  Seriously…how lucky am I?  Josh and Sara live here in ATL but most of Sara’s family is from New Zealand.  So…a destination wedding in Las Vegas seemed like the perfect place to meet up and celebrate!  I was excited beyond measure to get to shoot this wedding…the glitz, the glam, the lights…what photographer wouldn’t be?  But what surprised me most was just how ROMANTIC Las Vegas can be!  Of course…Sara and Josh being completely in love with each other didn’t hurt…made my job easy!  The wedding took place at a catholic church on the strip (who knew??) and the reception was at the Bellagio!  Let me tell you…not only the best wedding food I’ve ever had…but some of the best food EVER.  The sea bass was to. die. for.!  Josh and Sara thank you so much for inviting me out to capture your wedding day…it was truly and honor!

Thank you so so much to the fabulous Amber of Amber Anderson Photography for coming along to shoot this wedding with me.  I had a BLAST getting to hang out with you for a few days in such a fun city and you helped more than you know on the wedding day…you are amazing and I’m so glad to call you my friend and fellow amazing photographer!

Seriously…love these two!  What troupers!  We got stuck in some BAD traffic and couldn’t make it to our originally planned location for this shoot.  So…what did we do?  Pull off on the side of the road!  Literally!  We shot these images in a neighborhood that had been cleared and not built on.  There were some weeds that had grown up that kind of made it look like a field and some gorgeous light…so we ran with it!  Pretty impressed with how they turned out!  Of course…Jess and Jason are the perfect models!  They understood how to ignore the camera and just be with each other.  As you can tell from the images below they both LOVE life and each other!  Enjoy!

First…just for fun…the “location” side of the road abandoned neighborhood…
