Jesse + Alex // Style Me Pretty Georgia

It is with great pleasure that I get to announce that my work has been featured in Style Me Pretty Georgia! This actually compounds my previous excitement about this wedding because this happens to be one of my favorite weddings ever! Normally, I try my best to not play favorites… but in this case, I just couldn’t help it.

Meet Jesse and Alex! I’ve loved getting to know Jesse for the last… 7-8 years? That’s right. 7-8 Years because she just so happens to be my sister! Well, in-law.:)Jesse is Courtney’s younger sister and I’ve been able to walk alongside her through high school, college and now beyond. We’re so proud of her and the incredible woman she’s become. Seriously… artist, opera singer, linguist and (most importantly) a heart of gold? What more can you ask for?? How about a guy with an even bigger heart? Well, now she has that, too.

Jesse and Alex were married right in her parent’s back yard in Peachtree City, GA. Think southern meets DIY with a splash of vintage charm. Their wedding was nothing short of amazing! You can see their feature in Style Me Pretty here and an even larger sampling of images here.

Ifeoma + Chi // Austin Wedding

Ifeoma and Chi are back! If you haven’t had the chance to see their Houston engagement shoot, you can do so here… but don’t take too long because their wedding was even bigger and better!

I had the immense pleasure of traveling back to TX, visiting my family, eating incredible Tex-Mex and BBQ, and even reconnecting with very old friends… all in in the name of shooting yet another friend’s wedding! I admit, I can be a bit spoiled at times.:)Ifeoma and Chi were married in Austin with both the rolling hills of Westlake and the downtown/UT campus area as the backdrop for their wedding day. It was truly an incredible day!

The Jerome Family // Senoia Portrait

Meet the Jerome family! This group should win an award for braving a chilly afternoon shoot with not one… not two… not even three… but four children (the youngest being 6 months old)! How amazing is that?? And not only that, they made it look easy. We had so much fun exploring around Senoia and goofing off that, well, they made my job pretty easy too.:)

Here’s just a small sampling of what turned out!

Post-Turkey Update!

Hello, world! Can you believe 2011 is already winding down? I can’t… especially because there’s still so much to do! There really isn’t ever a dull moment here.:)What am I talking about? Well, besides the weddings, portraits, holiday travels, preggo wife (we find out if we’re having a boy or girl this week!), house work (see previous), etc… I have yet more news for you!

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been informed of my acceptance into BOTH Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book and Southern Weddings’ Blue Ribbon Vendors!! This is a huge honor and I’m absolutely floored to be placed alongside some of the industry’s best! Style Me Pretty and Southern Weddings are incredible resources for brides-to-be. They feature creative/eclectic/beautiful/charming/etc. ideas for those planning their weddings and showcase them on their blogs for your inspiration!

That said, with all that’s going on there’s still a lot up my sleeve for this blog. Stay tuned for some fun renovations, more updates (did I mention we’re finding out the sex of our little baby soon??) and great highlights from all of my recent shoots. For now, I’ll leave you with a quick board of my most recent obsession: Instagram.:)

Lauren // Senior Class of 2012

Introducing Lauren!

Let me just say that it was a blast shooting Lauren’s senior portraits. Why, you might ask? Well beyond the unseasonably warm weather and beautiful light… beyond chatting about photography, music and ministry (three loves that we both share)… we (Lauren, her mom and I) basically just goofed off for hours as if photo shoots were the most normal, comfortable things in the world! Most people take at least a little coaxing before really feeling at ease in front of the camera… not these two. In fact, Lauren’s mom felt so comfortable that day that I’m pretty sure she snapped a few ridiculous pictures of me as I was crawling in dirt and standing in awkward positions in order to get better vantage points for my shots. Let’s hope those photos don’t surface any time soon!:)

These, however, are free of me and are perfectly safe to view.
