What a beautiful day for such a beautiful bride and groom. I knew I was going to enjoy working with Paige and Ben when I asked them if they’d be interested in floating down the river for their engagement photos and they said yes! They are so fun-loving and truly some of my favorite people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I absolutely love all the details that Paige made sure to include in her and Ben’s big day. I hope you guys love these as much as I have enjoyed making them for you!
I met Traci a while back at a networking event leading up to a bridal show we were both to attend in February. She is the director at the BRAND NEW wedding venue in Brooklet, Georgia called Snellings Manor. The venue is a gorgeous, red brick plantation-style home surrounded by a white picket fence with mature trees lining the driveway. After speaking to Traci again at the bridal show, we made the decision to host a styled session there on April 1st.
We partnered with several vendors that made the day so much more beautiful than I could’ve imagined. If you are EVER in need of a venue, hair stylist, makeup artist or florist you HAVE to check these vendors out!

Myra and Thomas were married on a brisk but beautiful Fall day! There were so sweet and so fun all day long. Myra could not have been a more down-to-earth bride. As soon as Thomas came on the scene, he was making people laugh. If he keeps that up, Myra is in for a lifetime of laughter and adventure! Enjoy the preview guys!
Savannah Ellison (now Abney) and her family have been an instrumental part of my life individually and my marriage. Her daddy was the pastor that married my husband and I and my parents were influential in the early years of their marriage. To say that this couple has generations worth of Godly heritage would be an understatement. While I’ve known Savannah for much longer, it’s quite obvious in a very short amount of time just how equally matched Savannah and Caleb are. If the couple themselves are not evidence enough of God’s grace and work in the lives of believers, their bridal party, family, and even guests would second and third that point. I am so incredibly blessed to have been a small part of this incredibly special day. Savannah and Caleb, I pray that you guys experience blessing upon blessing and that you will learn to love and care for one another more and more every day. Love you guys!
This was just a family wedding for me! I loved getting to be such a special part of these two families becoming one. I have known Andrew and Brittany’s families for a little while now and have grown to love them so much! Andrew and Brittany are a sweet extension of that. Brittany was so laid back as was Andrew and they truly make a super sweet couple. I cannot wait to see what the Lord does with you two! Congratulations and I hope you love the photos as much as I do!
Meredith and Matthew were in a wedding I helped to photograph a few years back. From what I’ve heard Matthew was watching Meredith then. I’ve known Matthew for quite some time and have loved his gentle spirit and caring nature from the very beginning. On a sunny October day I began to watch Matthew’s gentleness and care unfold before my very eyes as he married his bride, Meredith. (Who I might add is one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen.) Meredith’s love for the Lord shines so brightly through her smile and demeanor. She and Matthew light up a room as soon as they enter. Matthew and Meredith, let me say thank you so much for allowing me to play such a special part in one of the biggest days of each of your lives. I am truly honored and blessed that you trusted me with the responsibility. I hope each of you love the photos here and I can’t wait for you to see them all!
^ This photo may be my favorite from the day. Meredith’s father walked out of the double doors and when he saw his little girl the tears were flowing… (FROM ME TOO!)
