The Cator Woolford Gardens is one of my favorite portrait spots in Atlanta, and once again – it did not disappoint! I recently met up with Wenjie (who you may remember from Rosalina & Doug’s wedding) and her adorable husband Futhum at CWG for maternity photos! These two are absolutely adorable together and are going to be the best parents!

The ocean has long been my special place to recharge and rest. My Dad grew up near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, so my childhood summers were spent riding the waves, making sandcastles and looking for seashells! It holds so many special memories for me, and all my stress just melts away as soon as my toes settle into the sand. Winter’s shorter days and cold temps have me longing for the summer sun and time at the beach even more, so it seemed appropriate that I take a moment to revisit this beachy bridal shoot from last August on Jekyll Island.

Katie & Chris’ day was full of classic elegance. From our first conversation, I knew their day would be one for the books as Katie described the incredible relationship she has with her family & the ways she planned to incorporate that tradition into her day. I was especially thrilled when Southerly Grace Magazine selected […]

One of the best decision’s I made when planning our Anniversary trip to Portugal was booking a session with Rui and Cristiana, the photography duo that makes up Love is My Favorite Color. I’d been toying with the idea of surprising Tanner with a session while on our trip & I loved the idea of […]

Hi, friends! Spring is upon us and with that comes the start of Spring Engagement season! I, for one, am so glad that winter is almost over and that the flowers are out on the trees! This is one of my favorite times of the year!! With that in mind, I thought it’s about time […]

About a year ago, on one of those gorgeous late winter weekends when it’s not quite spring yet (but it’s starting to feel like it), I asked Jenna if I could take photos of her putting together a floral arrangement. Michelle Landreau & I wanted to do a film photo shoot of some kind & […]

Welcome back to this week’s edition of Travel Tuesday! I’m working inside today trying my best to stay warm in this freezing weather, so I decided to post about the beach! The beach in Cascais, Portugal was amazing, and I can almost feel the warmth creeping back into my toes as I look through some […]
