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 […]



Hannah & Grayson’s wedding at the Gordon’s home in Buckhead, Atlanta, GA was absolutely stunning!! From the beginning, I loved the vision the bride Hannah along with Britain Lamon and her amazing team at Britain Lamon Events had for transforming this gorgeous Buckhead home into a jaw-dropping spot for a wedding! But it all started when Hannah & Grayson met at the University of Georgia and became friends. Later in the Big Apple, their initial friendship blossomed into romance! I loved capturing engagement photos for the pair in what I like to call “the secret garden” – a beautiful haven just steps away from the Gordon’s home in Buckhead. 

On the day of the wedding, Hannah, her bridesmaids and family all shared a beautiful Airbnb  home in Ansley Park, and when we arrived it was a bustle of activity as everyone finished up hair & makeup! Once we arrived at the Gordon home, Hannah got into her gorgeous gown! She left everyone awed and amazed when she surprised first her Dad and then the bridesmaids in her gown! And, we had so much fun taking her bridal portraits around the gorgeous property!

The ceremony was held in front of the Gordon’s home. Guests arrived to the sound of the string quartet, Luna Strings, playing as a gentle breeze rustled the gorgeously southern magnolia arrangements. Grayson’s Aunt Rhonda officiated the ceremony, and it was the perfect balance of beauty and sentiment! Following the ceremony, guests wound their way towards the backyard where A-town A-list kicked off the party! Beautiful garden arrangements and textured linens created an elegantly southern feel. And Hannah, Grayson and their family and friends partied well into the night!

Hannah and Grayson – you are an absolutely stunning couple! Hannah, your beauty and kindness make it easy to see how Grayson fell in love with you so quickly! And Grayson, you continue to keep us all entertained & laughing! Thank you so much for allowing me the privilege to be a part of your lives during this season! Your day was absolutely beautiful! Much love & appreciation – Carrie Joy
