Katy and Ivan are just the sweetest couple. They also have such a blast together, and with Katy’s infectious laugh, how could they not. We went to the beautiful Tanyard Creek Park (which they introduced me to) to shoot their engagement session. It was a gorgeous very early spring day, and I could not have asked for better clients, who were game to do all the silly things I asked them to do, or that I did to get the shot. I have so loved working with them!
Susana and Preston had the most beautiful wedding this past October at the Ridges Resort & Marina in Hiawassee, Georgia. They were surrounded by an amazing group of friends and family who showered them with love. Their reception was on a floating dock and once the festivities got going, I thought we might fall into the lake. What a fun bunch! Thank you Susana and Preston for letting me be a part of your day. What a treat!

Rachael Riedinger, owner, designer, and maker of Neva Opet, is one of the funniest people, with the most infectious smile and laugh. It is very hard to not laugh until you cry when Rachael is around. And bonus, she makes the most gorgeous and luxurious leather bags! When she and I started discussing her fall/winter look book, we were immediately on the same page, and I knew this was going to be an amazing experience. Neva Opet has added some amazing new designs and leathers into their collection this season. Look at that navy leather! It’s even dreamier in person! The olive soft leather, does it get any better? Christmas is just around the corner, maybe you should leave the Neva Opet website up on your special someone’s computer. Or better yet, just buy yourself one, I’m sure you deserve it!
So lucky to have worked with an amazing group of women on this photo shoot!

Sim and Jeff got married in Ireland, (how dreamy?). They had to have a party to celebrate their nuptials with their family and friends in Atlanta. Sim and Jeff are the kind of couple that make you believe in real love. Not storybook love, but real “partners in life” kind of love. Their wedding party was full of love and happiness from all of the guests helping them celebrate. The celebration took place at the beautiful historic house The Gardens at Great Oaks. All of the event planning, and gorgeous florals were done by Bliss Weddings and Events of Atlanta. I am so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful celebration, and to work with such a great team.
I recently spent the morning at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. This is one of my very favorite places in the city. Most recently the gardens are hosting an exhibit by Dale Chihuly, an amazing glass blowing artist. If you live in the Atlanta area, please make sometime to see this gorgeous exhibit! It really did blow my mind! I love plants and flowers so I cannot wait for my next wander around the botanical gardens.
