Love is the Only Gold Inspiration | Anderson House | Washington, DC

Back in August, I had the pleasure of attending the Jeremy Chou Workshop in DC.  During our workshop, we had the opportunity to participate in several different styled shoots.  Each one was carefully designed and crafted by Elizabeth of East Made Event Company.  For this particular shoot, the inspiration was "Love is the Only Gold" using fine gold details in a gold room at the Anderson House in Dupont Circle.

Callanwolde Fine Arts Center | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Elegant Peach and Green Styled Shoot | Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club Wedding

This past February I had the pleasure of working a tremendous team of vendors to photograph this styled shoot!  The shoot came together because of the workshop for brides that Simply Catering hosted called Simply Foxhall Workshop.  Brides were able to meet vendors, taste yummy food, and hear from different speakers.  Before the event began, we styled a shoot because if you've ever been to Foxhall, you know exactly why.

Coastal Wedding Inspiration | Beaufort, SC | Anchorage 1770

This shoot really was a dream come true.  I'd wanted to plan my own styled shoot for awhile and when I decided go to Shanna Skidmore's Blueprint Retreat that took place in Beaufort, SC, the wheels started turning.  I mean, we were already going to be in this beautiful little seaside town.  Why not stay an extra day and try to pull together a shoot to do while I was there?  

Taylor Doehrman of Taylor Dawn Design quickly came on board and the two of us started planning and recruiting.  Some amazing vendors pulled out all the stops for us to make this happen.

Featured on Dear Gray Magazine

The warm, comforting air of the neighboring sea embraced the bride on her wedding day. Her dreamy wedding dress was quite at home in this ethereal coastal setting. Light and sweet, the bride’s graceful gown matched her gentle and kind spirit. The delicate lace in a modern silhouette demonstrated the romantic and eager love shared by the couple. As the bride wandered around the opulent Anchorage 1770, her sentimental gown was raptured in the sea breeze. Her deep blush, velvet heels helped complete her perfectly classic yet modern look. The perfect marriage of the pastels and deep plum flowers in her floral arrangement held together by the strong, slate, floor-length ribbons were wonderfully symbolic of the couples apparent love for one another: flattering sweet yet absolute. The bride and grooms wedding vows are safely housed in elegant vow books, each differing in style yet exquisitely coupled together.


  The bride and groom's patient and comforting love was evident in each of the intricate details of their wedding. The whimsy of the antique calligraphy of their invitation suite well prepared guests for their idyllic reception. The perfectly set tables held white linen table cloths, tall candlesticks, and an Arcadian vase overflowing with a soft, light bouquet. The bride strolls barefoot for a moment alone on the docks to read her beloved’s final words as a single man. The boats eagerly awaiting voyage, at the brides back, were a lovey reminder of her own impending adventure. The bride strolls back, under the Spanish moss, to be united forever with her husband. - Words by Brooke Meaders

Simple and Elegant Wedding Inspiration | Senoia, Ga Wedding Photographer | Fine Art Film Photographer

I always love it when I get to second shoot with my sweet friend, Vic, of Vic Bonvicini Photography.  She is so kind and a joy to work with.

Alix and Eddie had a beautiful and simple wedding at a historic home near downtown Senoia (Home of the set of The Walking Dead for all you fans out there!) and the day felt so calm.  I loved it.  I also brought along one of my film cameras and finished off a roll of Portra 160 I had previously started.  Here are a few of my favorite images from that day.  

Enjoy!

These next images were taken on film.  Can you tell the difference?


Folk Wedding Inspiration | Mountain Laurel Farm Wedding

Earlier this spring, I had the pleasure of working with Vic Bonvicini Photography.  This lady is wonderful and so are her clients!  I loved getting to help her photograph Jenevieve and Tommy's Wedding day at Mountain Laurel Farm in Cleveland, Ga.  It was a beautiful day full of natural and authentic details true to this couple.  Jenevieve made or inspired most of the details herself.  She did a beautiful job pulling off this folk inspired wedding in the mountains so I just had to share a few images.

 The bride MADE these fabulous bowties for the groomsmen.

 Tommy is a musician, so Jenevieve had guitar strings incorporated into his boutonniere.
