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 […]



I knew I was going to love Casey & Demetria as soon as I met them last summer! I’m so inspired by their love story; they met serving and caring for those less fortunate while attending Tufts Med School in Boston (read more of their story HERE). When we met, Casey & Demetria had just moved down to Atlanta for residency, and y’all, there’s always something incredibly special about this pair of doctors! I love their compassion, and the sweet way they love and serve others was evident in every interaction! Also, their wedding was four years to the day from the first time they told each other “I love you.” How romantic is that? I met Casey & Demetria through Daria of Circle of Love Weddings, who I simply adore after working together at Teo & Emily’s Summerour Studio wedding!
Casey & Demetria had a perfect spring wedding! Nestled in the gorgeous Cator Woolford Gardens in Atlanta, Casey & Demetria shared a sweet First Look together followed by an even more emotional ceremony in the garden. Surrounded by fragrant wisteria and azaleas, friends and family witnessed these two sweethearts pledge forever together followed by a very cool libation ritual. Following cocktail hour, everyone enjoyed dinner al fresco as golden light filtered through the trees! It was so magical! Enjoy this journey through their day, and be on the look out for my favorite golden hour portraits captured on film!
Casey & Demetria, I’m trilled for you guys! Your compassion inspires me, and I adore the loving way you serve others. You are a beautiful pair – inside & out, and it’s amazing to see how you honor and care for one another. I’m so excited to see all that you tackle as a married couple! Thank you for the privilege of capturing your gorgeous wedding! Much love & appreciation – Carrie Joy

I love the Cator Woolford Gardens – every corner is picture perfect!

Loved that Casey & Demetria opted for a loving First Look in the garden before the ceremony!

LOVE this one! Don’t they look stunning on the staircase?! That light

Isn’t the flower girl just darling? Love this sweet moment of Gabby & Demetria together!

Can’t you just feel the joy in this photo?! Demetria, you are stunning!

I love the sweet, emotional moment when Demetria came down the aisle.

Casey & Demetria performed a Libation ritual during the ceremony – so cool!

Aren’t they the cutest? I love this triumphant recessional shot!

I loved taking a few moments during dinner for some romantic shots in sunset light! Gosh, these film shots are some of my favorites of the whole day!!

As twilight began to fade, the party transitioned inside for cake & dancing!

In addition to the beautiful (& more traditional) wedding cake, Casey’s Groom’s cake was King of Pops 🙂

Loved the delicious (and gorgeous) cake by For Goodness Cakes & florals by Fuji Floral Design.

Trey of Soul Spin Studios had the party rocking, and I got to see firsthand the famous dance moves that Casey used to win Demetria over 😉

Congrats Casey & Demetria! Thank you for the privilege of being a part of your gorgeous day!
