Stephanie and Mark’s wedding was extra special for me. Why…because Stephanie and I have known each other since high school! Yep…we met 17 years ago! (Wait! How did I get to be 32 again? HS seems like it was just yesterday!) Stephanie and I both played flute in the marching band! She and Mark also met in HS and got engaged after 12 years of dating!! All of their friends and family were more than excited to see this wedding day come to life! One of my favorite things about Stephanie’s wedding is that she incorporated a slight “Alice in Wonderland” theme into her day…check out their images below and see what all you can pick out! Thank you so much for having me guys! It was a real honor to get to capture your day for such longtime friends!

I’ve known Kathy from an online forum for the last 8 years. We’d never met in person, but Kathy told me that she loved my photography and that some day she’d get to meet me because she was hiring me if she ever got married! Seeing that Kathy lives in Portland, OR and I live in Atlanta, GA (total opposite all the way across the country from each other) I was hopefully but figured it would be a long stretch to actually make it happen. Imagine my surprise when Kathy contacted me, said she was newly engaged and the only thing she could think about was making sure I could come shoot her wedding…what an honor!
Kathy and Mike’s wedding was gorgeous, but what I remember most about their day was the amount of love that was EVERYWHERE! These two are one special couple…and along with their boys…they have a mighty special family! One of the neatest things about their day was that they included a Persian ceremony to honor Kathy’s heritage! It was so unique and just perfect! Ok…enough from me. Let’s let the pictures do the talking! Enjoy!!
Jillian and Chris were married at The Venetian Pier at Lake Lanier Islands. They are both in the Air Force and live in New Mexico, so when I showed up at the wedding, it was the first time we had met! Let me tell you what a delight they both were! Jillian and Chris both have fantastic families and their love just flowed the entire day. My favorite part of the day was when Grandpa sang a song to them that he had sang to his wife on their 50th Anniversary…seriously, one of the SWEETEST moments ever! (see pictures below!) Jillian and Chris, thanks for having me to capture your day…I felt like part of the family by the end of the evening! Enjoy!
Kristina and Hans were married at their home church of Alpharetta First Presbyterian and then celebrated their union with an elegant reception at The Manor Golf and Country Club in Milton, GA. I know I say this all of the time, but I must just have the sweetest couples as clients because Kristina and Hans are were just delightful! I was greeted with a squeal when I arrived in Kristina’s getting ready room and the entire wedding day was full of laughs, sweet moments, and TONS of fun! You’ll see from the pictures that this was an elegant affair with gorgeous tablescapes adorned with the prettiest flowers. However, at this wedding, elegant did not mean stuffy! Kristina, Hans and all of their guests knew how to party! The dance floor was packed all night, the photobooth brought lots of laughter, and the candy bar topped off the night with a sugar rush. Kristina and Hans it was a pleasure working with you and your amazing families! Enjoy the images from your big day!

I asked the girls to come up with their own “silly” pose…they channeled their inner cheesy 80′s music video selves!

When I think of Ashley and Chris the first word that pops into my head is – PRECIOUS! These too are so in love and even more importantly that love is deeply routed first in God. I know without a doubt that their wedding day was surely precious in the eyes of the Lord. Ashley and Chris were married at their home church, Greater Heights Baptist Church, in Cumming, GA and had an incredibly sweet reception at Chukkar Farms and Polo Club in Alpharetta. Let me tell you what a fun place that was to shoot! First…there is a gorgeous green barn with yellow accents…fun! Then, there are all of the animals – pigs, chickens, horses, and even a farm cat. My favorite pictures from the day were when a HUGE clydesdale horse came RUNNING towards us – seriously…so fun! (Make sure you make it to the bottom of the post to see them!) What else? Ashley’s dress had pockets! Her bridesmaid dresses were from Banana Republic – love this idea! All in all the wedding was personal, sweet, and a joy to photograph! Enjoy the images!
