I had to opportunity to shoot my very first wedding at Stewart Farms. Hopefully this if the first of many more to come!
I can't believe this is February! This warm weather is amazing. I'm sitting in front of my computer, windows open, taking it all in. This unseasonably warm weather has me thinking about how "things are not always what they seem". I'm including a few of my favorite shots from wedding days where this was the case. Keep reading, you'll see where I'm headed.
As many of you may know, Sunset Pavilion at Brasstown Valley is a picture perfect spot. However, it can also be very windy. I was so thankful this couple was willing to brave the cold January winds on their wedding day. (I don't think it got above freezing that day.)
Rain on your wedding day? They say it's good luck, but hard for great photos. This bride was literally sitting in the falling rain. (Her hubby was close by, ready to jump in with the umbrella.)
This sweet couple had it all! Their Spring Break wedding had the best of everything; rain, snow, and lots of snuggles.
What's the point to all this? You can't control every aspect of your wedding day, no matter how hard you try. Make sure you enjoy it. Sometimes the best shots come from unplanned moments where all the right elements simply come together.
I loved this dinosaur themed photo session. It was the cutest idea. (His mommy receives all the credit.) His expression is priceless!
Congratulations Fannin County High: Class of 2019!
Last Saturday I got to visit Black Fox Farms in Cleveland, TN. This is the first time that I have been to this venue. What a pleasant surprise. The flowers were absolutely beautiful. I'm not sure which I enjoyed more, seeing them or smelling them!

Hi Everyone! It's been a few weeks (maybe longer) since I've featured a wedding venue.
This week we're going to take a look at the all new, Ocoee Crest! Located in the beautiful Benton, TN, this venue can accommodate up to 300 guests with indoor and outdoor options. Here's a few images of the lovely space.
As soon as you step through the front doors, you're immediately drawn to this gorgeous view. This view can be seen throughout your entire wedding day from your ceremony site as well as your reception area.
Inside, you can enjoy the wonderful suites for the bridal party.
Ocoee Crest has thought of everything, including a Bridesmaid's Suite!
Whether you're looking for an incredible view, or an event space that can accommodate a larger crowd, Ocoee Crest is sure to impress!
Here's a few images from Vendor's Night at the brand new Candlelight Ridge Wedding Venue in Chickamauga, GA. Located next-door to The Homestead at Cloudland Station, this venue is sure to be a hit in 2019!
Begin your wedding day sipping hot tea in this fairy tale cottage with the perfect view of your ceremony site. What an awesome bridal suite!

The Retreat at Hiawasee River is located on the banks of (you guessed it) the Hiawassee River. Whether you're planning an outdoor wedding, or an indoor ceremony with a rustic feel, they've got you covered. Whichever ceremony location you choose, the setting is wonderful! Another bonus feature.. they have on-site cabins. So all your family that's traveling can conveniently stay on the property.
Here's a few of my favorite shots from a wedding there this past fall.
The fall colors were showing off this weekend for Amanda and Jim's Wedding!
We started the day off right, tucked in the trees with the fall colors surrounding us. Juliette Chapel in Dahlonega made the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony. Next, the reception followed at 6140 Events in Cumming, GA.
A huge shot out to Kelsey with Events by Dezine who kept everything running perfectly smooth!
I also can't forget Sue with JB Jams who made sure they're wasn't a dull moment!
The fall colors were in full display this past weekend for Song and Adam's wedding at The Barn at Young Harris.
Everyone has a different opinion on first looks. Should the groom see you for the first time as you're walking down the aisle? Or should he see you before the ceremony in a moment for the two of you to share, embrace, giggle and calm each others nerves?
Regardless of when he sees you, its guaranteed to be magical.
Personally, I absolutely love first looks! They are one of my favorite parts of the day. This is when I capture images that quickly become some of my all time favorites.
Venue: The Barn at Young Harris
Catering: Epic Catering
This is the first time I've had the pleasure to shoot at In The Woods. It's a beautiful wedding
venue in Rockmart, GA. As soon as I arrived on the property, I was blown away by the landscaping and incredible setting. With the leaves displaying their vibrant colors, it was simply the icing on the cake!
Happy One Week Anniversary to this sweet couple!
They kept me on my toes and laughing all day. They certainly seemed to enjoy their wedding day and didn't let stress get in their way!!
I mean what groom is going to pass by the opportunity to fish on the morning of his wedding?!
There's nothing like a Grand Entrance!
