Permalink to Ellen


Where? Ellen’s apartment in Orlando, Florida

Details? I’m proud (and a little devastated) to say that this is my baby sister. My BABY sister. Yeah, she’s a hottie. I spent the bestest weekend ever with her in Florida, and she let me photograph her at home — which is something I wish more women would do. :) Not only is she beautiful, but she’s fun and funny and smart and strong and she WILL beat you in a pancake-eating contest!

I love you, Nev!

Permalink to Rebecca


Where? Melbourne Beach, Florida

Details? Rebecca is more family than friend, so she let me boss her around when she asked for a boudoir shoot and I said, “okay, but we’re going to the beach.”  It also helped that I’d just spent the night at her house, cuddled up in her bed, sharing deep, dark, girly secrets and gossiping about all the things that have happened in our lives since we last saw each other.  Rebecca is truly one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out, and I am so completely happy that she asked me to photograph her!

The first 3 shots are actually from the first evening after I got to her house.  We were losing light, so we couldn’t do too much.  The photos after those first 3 are all from 6am-ish the following morning, when we gave all the Melbourne Beach residents quite a show…  ;)


I love you, Sheba!

Michelle & Mark are engaged!

Where? Piedmont Park, the Virginia-Highland neighborhood, and the Jackson Street bridge, Atlanta

Details? I’ve known Michelle since we were kiddos singing in the Spivey Hall Children’s Choir.  How is it possible that we’ve grown up so much that she’s getting married?  Wait a minute… how have we grown up so much that I’ve already been married for 7 years??!  AH!   I’m so happy to see Michelle with such a sweet, cute guy!   He’s getting one of the best girls on the planet!

Marie & Charlie are engaged!

Where? Winn Park and Piedmont Park, Atlanta

Details? As my college roommate would say, “It was hot as a mother out there!” Seriously, it was like we had all jumped in the lake by the time we were done shooting. (I am quite proud that sweat is nowhere to be seen in these photos!) Marie and Charlie are the one and only 2012 couple who Dan and I will be photographing together — they snagged us just in time! Another fun fact? M&C were both regulars at the Buckhead bar where my baby sister used to bartend. Such a small world…

Ashley and Chad, you guys were SO much fun to celebrate with!  It’s always a little nerve-wracking to meet a couple for the very first time on their wedding day, but you couldn’t have made Erin and I feel any more at ease.  Thank you so much for making us a part of your day!
