Atlanta Elopement at Piedmont Park with Elizabeth and Adam!

When an old friend called to say he's getting engaged and therefore eloping and they wanted me to photograph their special day... well let's just say I was over the moon. Flattered. But mostly excited to get the chance to do this for them. 

And can you blame me? They're gorgeous. 

The ceremony was short but beautiful and Elizabeth got emotional a few times. Nothing is more sweet than a few happy tears during the vows. I even got emotional! 

Then we got play around Piedmont park with the Midtown skyline in the background with the sunset blanketing the sky. It was just to pretty for words. Go take a peek below! 

By the way, take a look at that stunning engagement ring! I mean, seriously gorgeous!

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!

Soft, Pink and Delicate: Styled Shoot in Alpharetta

Beautiful and delicate was the theme for this summery styled shoot at the lawns of the Alpharetta Courthouse Gardens. From our model's dramatic elegant dress, to the sparkly details on the table, we wanted to highlight the classic charm of a wedding style like this and the decor and flowers that looked beautiful and timeless.

Bronwyn & Nate MARRIED!

It was a magical summer day at Flint Hill with friends and family waiting to celebrate with the couple. But first, there was the dress to put on! 

One of the things that struck me the most about Bronwyn was so just downright sweet she was. It was evident in the girls she had around her as they got ready! I felt like we became friends by the end of the night. And what's not to love about that? 

There was a moment after she had her dress on and we were waiting for the guys to come in so we can go an take photos with the girls and she peeked out the window into the parking lot and the audible gasp we all heard as she saw him was evidence of her excitement. She watched him until she couldn't see him anymore. 

These girls were just the best and we all had so much fun being silly and taking photos! 

Nate and Bronwyn opted not to do a first look but they did meet, divided by a door, and said a prayer together. Both were so emotional and she was crying and it was better and more intimate than any first look  we could have done. It was so touching to see them share that moment together before walking down the aisle. 

It was a beautiful wedding, the kiss was swoony and the party was just getting started! The love was bright and beautiful and so evident between these two!

These two couldn't be any cuter and sweeter and more in love. 

Overall, Flint Hill turned out to be a perfect destination for this sweet couple with its nook and crannies and gardens everywhere. It looked enchanting, smelled divine from all the blooming flowers, and even the angel statues looked on as we made beautiful memories last and told this couple's story.

It was a wonderful end to a wonderful day as these two lovebirds danced their last song, kissed to a cheering crowd and were sent off to their grand honeymoon adventure! I go to a lot of weddings and party alongside many couples, but this wedding I remember was hard to leave since everyone wanted to keep dancing and having fun. 

So keep dancing, Nate & Bronwyn and hope you never stop having fun together!
