JESSICA & REED–GARRARD LANDING ENGAGEMENT SESSION

October in Atlanta is literally the most beautiful month: perfect blue skies, comfortable fall temperatures and the leaves changing hue. So I was thrilled with these perfect conditions to spend the afternoon with Jessica and Reed at Garrard Landing Park in Alpharetta for their engagement session! Jessica and Reed are such an incredible pair–so warm, caring and kind. They clearly have so much fun together and I can’t wait for their wedding next year at the lovely Kimball Hall!

CHRISTINA & NEIL–WHITLOCK INN WEDDING

Christina and Neil celebrated their beautiful wedding on one of those perfect fall days in October that you dream of all summer when it is a 100 degrees! Their wedding at the lovely Whitlock Inn in Marietta was simply perfect. They were surrounded by many wonderful family and friends and you could just feel all of the love and happiness. My favorite moment of the day was later on in the reception when Christina and Neil were dancing to a song they really love. Watching their playfulness and seeing them laugh hysterically just showcased perfectly the love and friendship that they share.

Favorite Moment: “Walking up to Neil and seeing his face as he turned around was a moment I will never forget. We smiled like crazy and we couldn’t stop hugging. Seeing him before the ceremony gave us a moment to connect and coexist, just the two of us.”–Christina

KARA & BRIAN–ST. DAVID’S EPISCOPAL & CHATTAHOOCHEE NATURE CENTER WEDDING

From the moment I met with Kara and her mom, I knew this was going to be a very special wedding! You are immediately drawn in by Kara’s warmth, kindness and loving personality. Meeting Brian you can see why these two are a perfect match! They celebrated their beautiful wedding at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Roswell and had a gorgeous reception at the Chattahoochee Nature Center! My favorite moment of the day was seeing Kara and Brian exit the church before heading to the reception. Kara had slipped off her shoes and the two were laughing as they walked toward their car. I loved the simplicity and joy in that moment after they had just become husband and wife!

Favorite Moments: I think the biggest take away for us was being with all the people who have known you, helped you grow up and shaped you into who you are today, all in the same room to help us celebrate our lives joining together!  I looked around and thought, “They are there, and so are they. And there is Brian’s family.” The love that we felt I can never describe.” —Kara

RACHEL & SAM–GARDENS AT GREAT OAKS WEDDING

Rachel and Sam celebrated their beautiful wedding at the Garden at Great Oaks in Roswell surrounded by all of their wonderful family and friends! My favorite moment from the day was when Sam saw Rachel walking down the aisle. All of the love and anticipation of the moment was on his face as he watched her walk down with her dad. The reception was a blast as the two danced the night away with everyone! It was such an honor to capture all of the wonderful moments from their day!

Favorite Moments: “Our favorite moment from our wedding was probably the ceremony. We had a minute to ourselves afterwards that was really our favorite.”–Rachel
