Ah… New love!

Raising a puppy is perfect practice for having a baby (or great birth control) depending on how you see it! 

With all the rain we had this summer, I was beginning to wonder if we’d ever get through Morgan & Mike’s engagement session, but alas… the rain allowed us a random day of sunshine this past weekend. We had a lot of fun exploring Burge Plantation and I can not wait until their  fall wedding (right around the corner). And check out their cute pup, Pepper… she is a force to be reckoned with!

Jamie & Jake are getting married in November in North Georgia, in her home town. For their engagement session, they wanted to venture to Southern Georgia where he is from in Albany. It was quiet the drive, but the groom’s family property titled “Mossy Oaks” was the perfect back drop for an engagement session. Braving 90 degree weather and more bugs then even the bravest southern girl can handle, the scenery was beautiful and the sunset was the perfect golden hue. Congrats you two on the engagement & we look forward to the wedding in November (and the cool mountain air).

As a photographer, sometimes the sky can open up and give us the most amazing light to work it. Of course eyes like Shannon’s don’t hurt either! Shannon & Chas met up with Christine in Virginia Highlands for their engagement session, Chas was such a trooper given he had to miss the  Masters Finals for the shoot! It was a perfect day, for both the engagement session and for Charl Schwartzel.

Shontell & Anthony are hosting a July wedding here in Atlanta at the downtown Ritz Carlton, but live & work in Washington, D.C. They wanted to include “home” in all the wedding festivities by having their engagement session photographed there. I was very excited when we decided to shoot for when the Cherry Blossoms peak and we hit it on the mark! While the city was packed with sightseers, we managed to find moments of pause within the crowds and got amazing results! We spend some time in the gardens at the Smithsonian before changing clothes and heading for Union Station, I am torn as to which part of the session I love the most! Shontell & Anthony were a blast to photograph & I can not wait until July for the wedding… this is one bride that I am sure is gonna do it up right!

and… ironically the images above were not taken in Cherry Trees but Magnolias!

Heidi & Mark, the lucky winners of our creative bride contest met up with Sarah this past weekend for their engagement session. Sarah couldn’t have asked for a better location then Heidi & Mark’s family farm, throw in a little sunshine and this session was a blast for everyone. Heidi & Mark’s wedding will take place in October on her Grandparents country estate, you can read more about them by clicking here.
