Cameron and John’s waterfront Savannah wedding made for another stunning Saturday in this historic city. Cameron and her girls got ready downtown, and shortly after we coordinated she & John’s first look at Reynolds Square. So many times throughout the day I overheard John say, “I’m so glad we did a first look” and I have to agree; it fit them and their day perfectly. With their family & wedding party photos out of the way under some of the most stunning oak trees Savannah has to offer (downtown and Wormsloe), we headed off to the Isle of Hope to get them offifically hitched! Friends and family packed the church decked out in their best black tie attire, and my favorite part was when Cameron and John exited the church and let out a celebratory holler and all of the congretation couldn’t help but laugh and share in their joy.
Their reception followed at the Savannah Yacht Club and they were blessed with a stunning sunset, delicious dining, and amazing dancing. I know they felt so much love and joy from those in attendance and it was so fun watching them soak it in all evening. I’m so glad I was the one to document this day for a couple who are truly best friends and I’m so excited to share just a few of my favorite images!
What I love most about Elizabeth and Will’s story is that though they were both born in Georgia, grew up only a few hours apart, and had tons of mutual friends, it wasn’t until they were both following their ambitions in Washington, DC that they met. And when they met, things were pretty instant. Even at their rehearsal dinner, so many of their friends and family talked about how the first time they brought each other around, each side of the family knew that meant things were pretty serious. These two just fit together like two puzzle pieces, made perfectly for one another, and honestly I’m quite sad their wedding has come and gone because I’ve loved being a part of this sweet season in their lives! Now…to just start the petition for them to relocate back south… ; )
I know how hard Elizabeth and her mom worked to make this gorgeous day a reality, and though every wedding has minor hiccups, all in all I think it was pretty true to what Elizabeth and Will hoped for on their wedding day. So many friends and family came from near and far to celebrate their union and it warmed my heart, but didn’t surprise me, to see how many people love them and their families. I loved being able to document yet another stunning Savannah celebration and I hope this handful of my favorite images adequately depicts how perfect these two are for one another!

I am just so spoiled this spring by starting my year with such amazing couples. I knew after Lindsey and Will’s engagement session last year that their Savannah Station wedding was going to be extra special…they’re 100% laid back, so happy in each others company, and just kind, beautiful people so I knew on their wedding day they would be surrounded by so many loved ones just like them.
Fortunately, I was right, and Lindsey and Will’s family and friends made their wedding day. We got to take beautiful pictures in so many pretty parts of Savannah and in addition to just being kind, gorgeous people, they have wonderful taste because their entire wedding design at Savannah Station was stunning. Posh Petals & Pearls and Harvey Design decked out their reception in lush florals, rich fabrics, and such romantic and moody lighting that set the whole tone for their evening. I loved some of the personal touches they included…cocktail napkins from Lindsey’s parents 1984 wedding, flaming donuts in lieu of a grooms cake, and even a Clemson birthday cake for Lindsey’s granddad (Go Tigers!).
I’m so glad I was the one chosen to document not only this stunning day but two incredibly sweet people, their love for one another, and the love of everyone that loves them. Enjoy just a few of my favorites from Lindsey and Will’s Savannah wedding!
A long time ago when I moved to South Carolina I stumbled across one of the coolest venues that I knew would be right up my alley. Hyde Park is a bit outside of Charleston but offers the most beautiful backdrop for an elegant or casual equestrian affair. When Megan of Mingle asked me to photograph a vision she had for the space, I was all about it! I loved EVERYTHING Megan pulled together for this inspiration shoot; from our beautiful bride model, to the natural and elegant table setting, to the way Anne from the Purple Magnolia styled the mantle (of course I was all about the bits being included!) and created a super natural and subtle ceremony backdrop on the back side of one of the barns. I have been so excited about these images since we shot them back in November and am so excited to share! Each detail was crafted or designed with so much talent and thoughtfulness and I was grateful to capture all that Hyde Park can offer.
Last spring I had such a great time shooting a special project at one of the newer venues in Augusta at Champions Retreat. Planner Meghan Bishop put together a really clean, simple, and stylish look meant to inspire a variety of brides and show that Champions Retreat can be both rustic and classic at the same time. It was such a joy working with the stunning Laney as our model again and of course having other talented vendors contribute their services and talents elevated the entire look and feel of this inspiration shoot. Thank you so much for The Celebration Society for sharing this shoot on their blog last week!
I had been looking forward to this Magnolia Plantation wedding for what felt like forever. Kristen was the maid of honor in Alyssa and Sean’s wedding last year so it was like I got a preview of their wedding and I knew it would be a few things…beautiful, easygoing, and a really, really good time. This crowd knows how to have fun. They don’t take themselves too seriously, they really value the most important things (their loved ones and time with them), and they are just beautiful people to photograph.
Kristen and Gray, getting to work with you guys was such a joy and a true honor. Thank you both for always keeping things light and so fun. Gray, you are one of a kind haha. And you are so fortunate to have someone as beautiful inside and out as Kristen. There was no shortage of moments…and if you know me you know I dig a good moment. I am so glad I got to be the one to document what I know was the best day of your lives, and to get to know you both and see so many familiar faces again. You are no doubt surrounded and loved by so many good people.
Congratulations – enjoy just a few of my favorite images!
