I tried to write something up that could accurately describe just how wonderful Mary & Damien’s wedding was, but I’ll just let the pictures below do most of the talking. We had a wonderful time in Gainesville, Florida.
It’s Saturday and I wanted to share with you photos from Mary & Damien’s rehearsal in Gainesville, Florida. (I caved and also added one of their first dance photos at the bottom). I’m also trying out some web-compression on the images. Are they too fuzzy? I want fast blog photos, that’s all. Leave your comments if you wish, I’ll share more next week.
These two met us in Atlanta for their e-session this past weekend and we had a great time freezing our buns off. Temps were in the mid 40’s with gusts of wind and somehow Mary rocked the dress and was still smiling during the entire process. I believe the High Museum was designed by Damien’s favorite architect, so it was doubly awesome photographing there.
I really loved the challenge of photographing in the “big city” for their Atlanta engagement session. Who knows, I may call Atlanta home some day so it was a good time for me as well ;). Their wedding is taking place in Florida this spring, so stay tuned for that. My awesome friend Jennifer of Shoppe3130 (etsy page) made the hearts for this shoot. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it seemed appropriate.
p.s. I love finding out what the groom enjoys, as it really gets them involved in the session.
p.s.s. A week prior to their session, I was up there scouting the area. I hope you enjoy some of the photos at the bottom.
I’ve been meaning to share my favorites from 2011, so let’s kick it off with engagement pictures. When I look back through library to update the portfolio, I’m always reminded of just how unique and important everyone’s love story is. If you’d like to see more from their session, just click on the respective image. I couldn’t do it without you guys, so thank you.
Charolette & Jeremiah: When Jeremiah let me in on a secret that he was planning to propose to his lady on a snowy day in Augusta, some strings had to be pulled. Since we live in the south, practically the entire town shuts down. Windsor was so kind to open up just for this guy to find the perfect ring. It was a very cold, but awesome covert operation.
Amy & Keaton: These two have such a sweet relationship and both have amazing families. Keaton’s awesome South African accent must of swooned Amy from day one and I’m happy to see an old neighbor happily married. We met up one morning in the country for their gorgeous woodsy engagement shoot, followed by a perfect field that us photographers always dream of finding.
Mary & Damien: My oh my, where do I begin? When Mary contacted me I was super excited to do their shoot in Atlanta. The High Museum is one of Damien’s favorite buildings, and they don’t even live anywhere near here! Their passion for a great picture was contagious. They now have a cute little baby that I can’t wait to meet. Y’all come back now ok?
Katie & Chris: Gosh, when these two told me where they were getting married in a tiny country church I was ecstatic about photographing there, but sadly their date was already booked. No worries though, because Tim Harman took good care of them. This small church is tucked away in the middle of nowhere SC. It made for a perfect location to capture this couple’s joy.
ShaRon & Melvin: This classy couple gave me complete control for their session and I’m glad they did. When I lived in Augusta, I always noticed how nice the levy would make for a shoot location. My assistant held the flash off camera to battle the sunset for the first picture and we ended the night with drinks in Olde Town. I miss that neighborhood sometimes
That’s it for this post folks. Check back soon for part two.
