Their first kiss was a fist bump… These two had my heart after that little tid bit! Their engagement session was at the quaint Haile Village in Gainesville. It’s the kind of place you can grab a glass of wine, sushi, or a cupcake all on one street! One of it’s best features though, they have Caylin & Joseph close by to visit :)
On the first day of Spring, Kim & Ryan said “I do”, with details of mint green and homage paid to Ryan’s career. Their celebration was one filled with plenty of pretty, love, (not just each other’s, but family and friends too) and oh so much fun! Even though it was an exceptionally hot spring day, littles and adults alike gathered to play games, dance and show their appreciation and love for this couple!

The stars & planets aligned earlier this year for us to FINALLY get together for their engagement session. OH MY STARS this couple… I have never laughed so much on a session! Their wedding later was exactly the same, but that’s a whole other post!
Big thanks to Honey Lake Plantation in Greenville for having us out!

Katrina & Ryan came to me to document their 5 year anniversary! I was honored to help these two celebrate such a beautiful love. Marriage isn’t easy y’all. It’s a true celebration to make it a year in this day & age, much less 5… or the 14 my husband & I celebrated his year. No it isn’t easy, but it’s worth every wonderful second. True love is a beautiful thing. Your lives together tell the most beautiful love story… your fairytale.
What made this whole session even sweeter, Katrina is a fellow photographer! Check her out http://drewphotographs.com
Their love absolutely radiates when you’re around them! Through a rained out first attempt & attack of the killer ants, we were finally able to pull off a session! I really enjoyed photographing their love & cannot wait for their wedding day next March at Rembert Farm! It is so beautiful there, I adore the sycamore tree lined driveway and the wild abandoned fields.
“So, I want all of these in black & white” -she said. And I sighed… a woman after my own heart. Because when you are making the choice to bare all & step outside your comfort zone, I believe there needs to be shadow & contrast and something left to the imagination. This Tuesday was full of sexy lines, black & white, laughter & some gray areas too… you know for the imagination. Sneak a peek.
While vacationing in Northern Cali., I had the opportunity to spend an evening with my cousin Courtney at Diablo State Park. This place is MAGICAL at sunset and created the most stunning of backdrops for our time together! I am so excited for Matt & Courtney and absolutely cannot wait to meet Miss Hudson Rose!
