MARRIED! JEN & GEOFF

{CHATEAU ELAN WINERY AND RESORT, BRASELTON, GA} {ATLANTA & DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}

I love weddings in the Fall here in Georgia and this one was one to go gaga over! Geoff and Jenn picked the most romantic of locations for their backdrop on their special day and nothing, not even the haze that permeated the north Georgia mountains from the wildfires would put a damper on this day. 

We might not have an epic sunset, but we got a gorgeous couple and a stunning location! We were super excited to explore the grounds and the indoors to find stunning locations for images that were borderline editorial, something you'd see in magazines, something not so traditional! Jenn was excited to get creative with us as we photographed them to rival movie stars! 

Thank you to Chateau Elan for its hospitality and help in making these images! And congrats to the happy couple! It was a true joy to photograph your wedding!

MARRIED! Gabby & Ashley! (+Engagement Photos!)

So excited to share these photos from the lovely wedding of Gabby and Ashley at Paris on Ponce! In putting this together, I also realized I never posted the engagement photos so here's a bit of a two in one! 

Engagement photos were done around Decatur Square mainly at The Brick Store, Leon's, Victory Sandwich Bar, and the Marta Station sign! We love LOVE Decatur but this place held a special place for the happy couple so we had a blast hanging out around the square and taking photos! Even stopping by after at my fave spots, Little Shop of Stories, to pick up a book or two!
