Jess and Matt – engaged! {Georgia wedding photographers}

Aside from the massive bug bites, this session was a dream come true. Two adorable people crazy in love for each other, two perfectly behaved pooches, a gorgeous ring, Lucchese boots, Pineola Farms,… the list goes on and on. It was a warm afternoon, and the bugs were the size of mockingbirds, but we really did have a great time, and we were able to create some pretty photographs as well. Congrats on your engagement, you two!

Lauren and Travis – married! {Georgia wedding photographers}

“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ” 
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Lauren and Travis had a beautiful day. The forecast called for a 100% chance of rain, but you know we don’t allow that. As the guests walked back to their cars to grab umbrellas, Donna and I remained firm in our belief that we would not get wet no matter what Mr. Weatherman said. We were dry as a bone, and the ceremony went off without a hitch. Lauren was absolutely gorgeous and totally unruffled by the grey clouds rolling in. She just wanted to see Travis and share some time with him.

At the reception, the blue sky was out in full force and everyone really relaxed and had fun. There’s never been a more perfect July Georgia wedding, I’m sure!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Travis Polk!

Kayla and Alex – married! {Georgia wedding photographers}

Love is a friendship set to music. – Joseph Campbell

These two have an amazing group of friends, and are amazing friends to each other. Their day was simply perfect – a beautiful church, a fabulous reception hall, lots of friends and family, and a day filled with prayer over the newly married couple.

 She was drop-dead gorgeous, no other way to put it, with a room full of gorgeous bridesmaids. He was boyishly handsome with his own posse of good-lookin’ groomsmen. That made for some beautiful pictures and a whole lot of fun for us.

Both Kayla and Alex are teachers, and they are making their life together in Dublin, GA, her hometown. We wish y’all the best, and we are so happy to have been there for your “I dos.”



Devin and Lee – married! {Georgia wedding photographers}


The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. – Audrey Hepburn

Love some Audrey. I’d give my left arm to have just an ounce of her timeless style and grace. Smart lady, too.

Devin and Lee were married just outside of Marshallville, GA at the Green Bell Barn and Inn. This place is absolutely precious – little cabins and camp houses dotting the hill under the pines, an ancient barn with a sawdust floor and rustic altar. Lee and Devin knew their guests well- BBQ and a Southern rock band, koozies, cake, and fun. Thankfully the weather was a little cooler that weekend for an all outdoor event. We do… had a blast!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Hughes!
