When my college buddy Paul (A.K.A. Big Dog) asked me to photograph his wedding, I was ecstatic! I felt so lucky and blessed to be able to document such a beautiful ceremony between 2 amazing people and the extra bonus was that the wedding took place in Savannah! Road Trip!!!!!! Oh, Savannah…. You are an amazing place. Sigh… I fell in love with that city and can’t wait to get back for another (longer) visit. Paul’s bride, Laurelee, is one of the sweetest and kindest girls that I have ever met and she has that sweet southern charm. I could sit and listen to her talk for hours… and I could photograph her for hours, too! She is so photogenic! The whole day was perfect. God sent a quick morning shower to cool things off a little and even provided us with a beautiful rainbow. Laurelee and Paul couldn’t stop smiling the whole day! A grin spread across Laurelee’s face as soon as she put her dress on and the smile never left her face! Happiness just oozed out of her!!!!! They didn’t see each other before the wedding but (separated by a door) they had a time of prayer together right before the ceremony. The reception was so much fun and a mini Asbury reunion with some of the yummiest Southern food I have ever tasted. Thank you guys again for allowing me to be a part of your big day. Congrats! Here are a few of my faves.
I fell in love with this family during their photo shoot. Andrea (the beautiful mom) has been my friend for a few years but this photo shoot was my first time meeting her amazing family. Her daughters were so much fun! They were so kind and they listened to me so well but they still had enough silliness in them to get some goofy photos (which I love). The girls even brought some props – stuffed animals, sunglasses and her special blanket for the younger girl and a book for the older girl because she loves to read. Here are a few from their session.
A few years ago, I took a photo of my good friend Bonnie and her daughter holding Starbucks cups for their Christmas card. If you know them at all, you know that BOTH of them LOVE Starbucks. :) So, it only seemed fitting to revisit that theme of Starbucks for this year’s photo shoot. We headed downtown and grabbed a few pics on our way to the Starbucks on the circle. Then a few days later, we headed back out to get just a few shots at a local summer carnival. Here are just a few of my faves.
