North Georgia lake side engagement session | Cori + Michael

Just when I thought I could not love these two any more, I got the film back from their engagement session.  I knew we had a blast during their portraits, but seeing what was captured nearly knocked the wind out of me....just like the gusts we faced this blustery afternoon. Cori and Michael are funny, charismatic and clearly bring out the best in one another.  Cori's infectious laughter fills the air with a joy you can't escape all while Michael's sarcasm keeps this laughter flowing. They were open enough to let me plop them on a windy, frigid shoreline and still capture genuine pieces of their relationship on film. We didn't fret too much over the chill or all the crazy directions the breeze took hair and clothing - allowing the moments to just come naturally. And because of that, the heart of what they have shines through. REAL LIFE is GOOD STUFF people!

Oh and they brought their cute puppy Cooper in a bow tie! Come.Onnnn. 

Beyond excited to capture and celebrate wedding day with you guys!

North Georgia Mountains Wedding | Fall at White Oaks Barn with DoAnn & Sam

What do you get when you bring together good people, good light and good views?  This fun and beautiful autumn wedding in North Georgia!  When I met DoAnn and Sam last year, I knew right away their wedding day would be a blast.  DoAnn has a brightness about her, so spirited and joy filled.  Sam has a calmness and warmth, a sureness about him that lets you know he is DoAnn's protector and probably chooses his friends wisely. Not surprisingly, I got to witness the culmination of these personalities as loved ones surrounded them on wedding day.  The bride encircled by hugs, laughs and attention to detail from her maids.  These women helped her slip into her dress, buckled her shoes and wrapped her in warmth when the wind blew wildly. The groom enveloped in yes, laughter, but also respect and support topped with a little comedy from his groom crew. We played some Michael Jackson and they all gave their best AC Slater poses. The sun shined loudly through the gorgeous fall colors of all the trees and distant valleys, and a cold wind let us know winter would be here soon.  Wind settling to a breeze just in time for the ceremony, the guests sat attentively while being kissed by golden beams as vows were shared. The White Oaks barn housed one heck of a party for their reception - including great live music from The Answer Band and plenty of glow sticks to liven the dance floor even more than it already was! The band even learned a song for DoAnn and she danced like no tomorrow to the Lady Gaga tune.  A long line of sparklers set the perfect exit for the newlyweds before jetting of to Thailand. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Carruth!  It was so awesome being there with you.

Fall Engagement Session North Georgia Countryside | Hillary & Jerrod

Atlanta and North Georgia film wedding photographer

I cannot think of a better way to get back into blogging than with this fun engagement session. Fall is the perfect time in North Georgia to run around outside and soak in some warm air and golden light.  For Hillary and Jerrod's engagement photos, the fields and horse pastures the couple wanted to utilize could not have been more welcoming on this autumn day. True to form, October gave us the best weather and golden glow of the sun and we got to take full advantage. The horses were clearly feeling the good vibes too, following us around loyally.

From the start, this pair knew that they wanted their photos taken in a place that held weight and value to their relationship.  Not only is this property beautiful, but drenched in sentiment for the two.  Hillary spent childhood here and got to introduce Jerrod to this special place when they begun dating.  Being a smart, thoughtful man, Jerrod proposed in this very place. I know guys, I know - sniffles.  Albeit private people, I can see value in the deeply rooted and sacred pieces of life and relationships rings so true in the hearts of this duo. I knew from the moment I heard their story we would make a great team and I cannot wait for their wedding this summer. 

Thank you Hillary & Jerrod for allowing me to capture you guys in a sacred space, and for rolling with the punches for a session so fun and naturally you!
