Mr. + Mrs. Adkins | Watkinsville, GA Wedding

Allie and Cameron were such a wonderful couple to work with. You could tell that their goals for their wedding were to glorify God and to celebrate with as many of their friends and family as they could. Cameron is the youth pastor at the church where they work so it was fun to see all of their students there and crushing it on the dance floor. Congratulations Mr. + Mrs. Adkins!

Where did you two meet?

Cameron and I met two years ago when we started as youth interns for Briarwood Baptist Church. Neither of us knew what we were getting into but we quickly discovered that we both had a heart for youth ministry and that we both loved Mike Ricks (the Youth Pastor at the time.)
I vividly remember the first day I met Cameron. I was looking for Mike’s office and he led me to it. After talking with Mike for a bit, Cameron came in and Mike awkwardly left us to get to know one another. It didn’t take me long to realize that something was different about this boy. The main thing that stood out to me was how intentional he was. He asked me so many questions and I could tell that he genuinely wanted to hear the answer. Another thing that caught my attention was that he constantly made eye contact with me. Not in a creepy way, but in an intentional and interested way (it also let me see how beautiful and blue his eyes are!) From the first day I met him and everyday since, Cameron has made me feel valued and important.

What are you looking forward to most about being married?

Allie said: getting to do everyday together, even if we won't be together during the day just knowing that I will come home to him is the most exciting thing ever. Also we're pretty young so a lot of the time it feels as if we're growing up together and it's so fun learning with him by my side.

Cameron said: Waking up every morning side by side

What has been the hardest part about wedding planning?

Cameron said "that it's been too long!" haha. But honestly the hardest part has been planning for a large guest list. Just making sure there is enough of everything for everyone.

Mr. + Mrs. Dreyer | Taylor Grady House Wedding | Athens, GA

Alex and Tim were married Labor Day weekend at the stunning and historic Taylor Grady House in Athens, GA. I loved being back in the classic city and celebrating with them. The venue was perfect for this southern wedding with its history, white columns, and beautiful outdoor setting. Everything came together perfectly with the help of planner, Taylor Dawn.

Congratulations Mr. + Mrs. Dreyer!

Candace + Grant | Athens Engagement Session

I got connected with Candace and Grant because they were at Brooke and Adam's Wedding!  These two are fun and giggly and I love how much they enjoy each other.  For their engagement session we went to Athens last January and walked around UGA's campus.  As a UGA grad, I was thrilled!  I love any excuse I get to go back and visit and loved reminiscing about my time there.

How did they meet?

Grant and Candace met at the University of Georgia, where they were introduced by mutual friends at Sanford Stadium. Later that night, Candace came over to the BYX house, where Grant was visiting with some of his brothers. The two hit it off talking on the couch for hours... and the rest is history.

How did he propose?

Grant invited Candace down to Macon during an especially trying exam week. She graciously offered to take care of him as he slaved over his notes. One night after dinner, they decided to take a study break up on the roof of his building to dance. When they arrived, Grant had candles burning and music playing. Before she knew what was happening, Grant asked Candace to spend forever with him.

Danielle + Stephen Film Anniversary Session | Atlanta Film Photographer
