I love road trips. I love the obligatory Starbucks fill-ups, cranking up the volume to my favorite songs, and air drumming with the wild abandon of someone who knows they’re far, far away from people they know. As a photographer, I spend a lot of time working in the same areas. So when Christine contacted me and asked if I’d be willing to drive to Atlanta for their engagement session, my answer was—of course!

I met Nick and Christine  for their Callaway Gardens engagement session and fell in LOVE. The gardens were huge, spanning acres of tree-lined paths, cabins, and a rocky chapel perched lakeside. It was beautiful. We spent the afternoon exploring the grounds (and the conservatory when the skies threatened rain). I love how the photos turned out!

I arrived home early—sliding my shoes off as I came through the kitchen door and feeling the cool tiles beneath my feet. After making a warm cup of chai tea, I settled down at my computer and started downloading images from today’s wedding.

Weddings often create a series of challenges–each unique to the day. They push you to look around and CREATE. Right about now, I’m feeling inspired by the love these two share, and the starry lights behind them. Can every day be like this one? <3

We met on Green Mountain, walking along the winding forest paths for Alaina’s 1 year portraits.

I’ve been photographing Alaina since she was born, and I think it makes sessions like these even more special. Over the past year, I’ve watched Alaina grow from the tiniest blue eyed baby to a fun, energetic toddler. I can’t wait to see what the future will bring for her!

I was THRILLED to hear that Laura and Ryan will be having another beautiful baby, and Alaina looked pretty excited to be a big sister!

Ryan’s parents are missionaries, and live in Africa. His mother sent a book with her voice narrating so Alaina would always be able to hear her. LOVE THIS! You can tell Alaina does too!

  • Janet Kee - Jessica,
    These are wonderful pictures! You capture so many different looks of her. Seeing the picture of her looking and listening to the book I gave her, and the comment you made about it, made me cry. (A happy cry), It is wonderful, especially to us, her grandparents, who can’t see her except through the pictures. Thank you for letting us see your blog!

I met Lacey and Roy in Green Mountain Park for their engagement session. We strolled though the forest under a kaleidoscope of perfect fall colors breathing in the crisp air. It was chilly and as we walked, Roy offered Lacey his jacket. She declined politely, but he pulled her close anyway–tucking her beneath his arm and kissing her lightly on the head. She looked up at him and smiled, the soft light igniting her fiery red hair.

And just like that, we began.

LOVE this! So so so so much. I can’t wait for their wedding in December!:)

Aren’t they the cutest? I love how sweet they are with each other!

It filled my senses.

As I entered the dressing area I was enveloped by the sweet scent of Dior perfume, soft melodic music , and above all—-laughter. It seemed to punctuate the day, flowing from person to person–room to room. Inez sat in front of the mirror, eyes closed—receiving her final makeup touches as her friends readied around her.

Inez and Zach were married at Huntsville’s gorgeous mountaintop venue Burritt on the Mountain and the day couldn’t have unraveled better. Cool air rustled the fall leaves above as the string quartet played to seated guests.   Inez walked down the steps towards Zach, her cathedral length veil gliding smoothly behind her as she leaned into her father’s arm. Utter perfection.

Inez and Zach,

I can’t tell you how much I adored your wedding day! You guys have been AMAZING to work with (thank you for letting me drag you outside for one last night photo!!) I’m thrilled that you guys have found a beautiful home in Louisiana and I know your adventure as a couple will only get better from here on. <3
