Dan and I photographed these cuties, Joni & Chip, at their wedding a few years back, and several times since then.  Now they have an adorable little girl in their family, too!

Cassie & Ben, you guys were so brave to just TRUST Erin and me to show up and make great photos!  Booking without meeting… meeting only 5 days before your wedding… then being in front of our cameras for the first time on your wedding day… okay, so maybe I’M the one who was nervous!  But y’all are the CUTEST, and we had so much fun with you both!  Thank you so much for making us a part of your celebration!

I’m so happy to have shot this wedding with my husband, Dan!  I’m already missing working with him, but the next several months still have us on the calendar as a photography team a handful of times – yay! – and this is one of those weddings.  (Thankfully my new second-shooter Erin rocks my face off, so I don’t have to feel TOO lonely without Dan as my shoot buddy!)

Kat & Gerard, you guys were awesome.  You could have had a total meltdown when your garden ceremony plans got rained out, but instead you rearranged your plans and GOT MARRIED!  You reminded us what wedding days are all about.  We’re so happy to have met you two!

Alison & Matt’s Aftershoot

Where?  Atlanta, Decatur, and surrounding areas

Details?  Alison is a photographer in her own right, so I was really honored to hear that she wanted me to photograph her and her husband. They’ve been married for a few years now, but they wanted to have a few more portraits of themselves in their wedding day clothes, so they got dressed back up and we spent a lovely couple of hours making some images I really love! Alison wore not one, but TWO gorgeous vintage gowns (and I hear from Matt that she has even more at home)!
