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 […]



This love story started in the sixth grade (#adorable!)! When they met, Brett knew Jana was something special (even though she only saw him as a friend). Later, they reconnected during their college years when Brett came home during breaks from school. It was in those days that Jana realized she had feelings for Brett and the rest, as they say, is history! Always best friends, these two are now husband & wife, and I couldn’t be happier for them!

Jana & Brett were wed on a sunny, gorgeous September day! Everything seemed to sparkle and glow as if to reflect the joy you could see radiating from this stunning couple! After the sweetest First Look at the bridge at Old Mill Park, these two cuties officially tied the knot under a stunning floral arch (by Gold & Bloom) outside of Ivy Hall in Roswell.  A hush fell as Jana came down the aisle towards her love while her brother Bo played guitar. Excitement overflowed once their union was official, and the two lovebirds danced and celebrated into the night!

Jana & Brett – It’s easy to see the two of you are the best of friends. You each light up when you’re around each other! Jana, you have the sweetest way with people! As I watched you greet friends and family, you hugged and greeted each one like they were the most important person to you in that moment. Brett, the way you love Jana is beautiful. I’m amazed by your patient pursuit of a relationship with her and the way you instantly knew how special she is. You are an amazing couple because of the way you love others – both each other and the ones around you! Hold on to that gift as you continue life as a married couple. I’m so happy for you both! Thank you for the privilege of capturing your relationship & your love! Much love & appreciation – Carrie Joy
