Bride on the steps of the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center

Katie’s Bridal Session at the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, GA was the perfect way to end 2020. We met on what was one of the nicest December days I’ve ever experienced – with temperatures in the high sixties, it was incredibly warm & pleasant, even for a city that has […]



How to describe the love & connection between Jessica & John? He’s quiet & strong, supporting and protecting Jessica. And she compliment’s him so well with her love of life & vivacious personality. She draws him out, bringing him out of his shell, coaxing that adorable smile.

High school sweethearts, their road has been a long one. How lucky to have met the one you were meant to marry so early in life! When John proposed he presented roses to represent the different stages of their relationship & love – past, present & future. How incredibly romantic is that? And to top it off, during their Engagement session I got to see & photograph not only the beautiful Engagement ring but the first ring John ever gave Jessica – one that he skipped school to buy her. How cool is that?

Jessica & John – Thank you so much for taking the time to let me get to know you. I love how you love. You both sacrificed time (and sleep) to meet me at sunrise & I’m incredibly grateful! Y’all are adorable together. I have really enjoyed getting to know you & am excited to capture your wedding in February!

Isn’t this such a tender moment between Jessica & John? Oh how I love…

The lake was such a peaceful, tranquil spot, especially so early in the morning. Perfect for spending time with your sweetheart 😉

All that bling? Well, that’s Jessica’s Engagement ring & the first ring John ever gave her. Sweet, huh?

Y’all are just too cute!

I love seeing how couples love one another. The love felt in a gaze…

Happy Thursday!
