Jade + Matt | Sugarboo Farms Wedding

For some strange reason, over the past three or four years – I’ve hardly posted any full wedding type blog posts.

So I’m catching up this year. Nevermind that I apparently, literally have 104 weddings in queue to post – we’re going to get through them all!

So here – here’s Jade and Matt’s wedding that I photographed sometime last year. It’s amazing. They’re amazing. I post that exit shot EVERYWHERE and on EVERYWHERE’S MOM. Because holy baby Jesus and Buddha – LOOK AT THAT EXIT SHOT.

Plus – their wedding took place at one of my most favorite venues, anywhere. Sugarboo Farms in Blairsville, Ga.

Of course – when you’re an affordable North Georgia Wedding Photographer (SEO Alert) there are hundreds and hundreds of amazing wedding venues scattered all over this state. Still. About that exit shot. (Because I can go on and on and on about it.) – it took me almost 6 years to get that exit shot. Not just the opportunity – but also to know how to photograph it, in that moment, without thinking or blinking. Because the best wedding photographers will tell you – that sh*t is not in their control – stuff happens in front of them and hopefully their cameras were on the ‘magic’ setting (and then we brag about how we knew what we were doing all along.)

Hey Jade & Matt – thanks.

Stephanie + David | The Barn at High Point Farms

We photographed Stephanie’s sister’s wedding about three years ago – so it was really great to be able to be there with their family again for another great day. And wow – what a beautiful wedding day it was over at The Barn at High Point Farms. I can’t believe it took me this long to finally book a wedding there. The grounds are amazing and they’re basically everything and more when you want your wedding in a barn on a farm in the North Georgia mountains.

Stephanie & David – You. Are. Awesome.

We Make Amazing Wedding Photos for You

With over 50 weddings booked for this year alone – we have the good fortune to have seven of them taking place at Sugarboo Farms up in North Georgia. First – it’s always nice to get out of the summer heat and head up to the mountains. Second – Sugarboo Farms is a unique venue, hidden in the mountains where you can literally have all of your guests essentially camp out and party all weekend without anyone bothering you.

The truth is – we know that any couple that decides on Sugarboo Farms for their wedding venue is going to be ALL KINDS OF AWESOME.

It’s true.

We first discovered the venue when Sarah & Max had their wedding there last year – and now we know that it’s always going to not only be a party – but a†different party every time we have a wedding there.

This is Jocelyn & Jon – and we really wanted to flex our storytelling muscles on this one. So I brought along Ellie & Kezia to help out, told them the super secret instructions for wedding photography magic – and we went to work.

Thank you very much Jocelyn & Jon – You. Are. Awesome.

We Make Amazing Wedding Photos for You

I met Nicci a loooooooooooooooooooong time ago. We worked at Starbucks together for a while back in… 2003? Who knows. Fortunately, the miracle of the internets let us keep in touch randomly and she remembered that I now photograph weddings. It was a big compliment and an honor that she and Greg flew me out from Atlanta back to Phoenix for their wedding.

Over the past six years I’ve been lucky to have attended so many ceremonies. It’s an amazing thing I get to do for a living.

Thank you Nicci & Greg.

Adventure Awaits | Alex & Brett

One of the greatest compliments a photographer can ever receive is a recommendation. Itís huge, really. To go out on a limb and vouch for someone, with enough faith in someoneís talent or ability and about something so personal as art, is just awesomeÖ and humbling. Iíve been lucky enough, in my journey as a photographer, to have met such incredible people that turn into clients- fun, funny, kind- and then those clientsí friends become my clients too. AWESOME. To anyone who has ever gone out on that limb for me, thank you. So much.

Alex and Brett are freaking adorable. And theyíre having a baby! Alex has the most†perfect basketball belly, the two of them are seriously cute as a button together, and when I suggested a sunrise session for their maternity photos (SUNRISE. As in leaving the house when itís still dark out and readying yourself for photos at six oíclock in the morning.), they were ALL OVER IT. It was actually the first time I ever even suggested a sunrise session to any client, ever, and Alex and Brett set the precedent by being game for anything. And because it was sunrise, the lighting was some of the most gorgeous I’ve worked with in the history of Ever.

 

Maternity sessions are so interesting to me- especially for first babies. Every couple has a certain dynamic all their own, and when you add a baby, everything shifts. Your whole life- your entire existence, really- is about to change, and in so many bigger ways than just who has diaper duty. For a lot of couples, itís your first big adventure together. And even if youíve been adventuring together already- first homes and new careers and travels abroad- parenthood is undoubtedly the biggest, craziest adventure you two will ever tackle. (Really. Even getting out of the house somewhere in the neighborhood of being on time is an adventure. But worth it. Because babies are cute.) I love watching the giddiness of couples who are about to have a baby. Itís this nervous energy, tripping over baby clothes and baby shoes and big decisions. Youíre savoring the last few weeks or months of it being just the two of youÖ and [im]patiently waiting for the biggest, most symbolic marker of your relationship: your baby. I remember those days. And watching the person you love become a mother or a father often brings back that flood of dizzying new love that you first felt way back Before Baby: in the very beginning. Itís kind of cool. You get to fall in love all over again, only multiplied by about a million. (And with extra pints of Hšagen-Dazs. Very important.)

Alex and Brett, thank you for trusting me with something so important as capturing the last few weeks while your sweet girl is still cozied up on the inside. Donít forget to pack a fan for your hospital stay, guys. ūüôā You. Are. Awesome.

(Friday) I’m in Love

I got married [almost] eight years ago. And all at once, it feels like a long time and about five minutes since that day. Time has this funny habit of slowing down and speeding up at the most inopportune moments. High school algebra class? Time moved at a glacial pace. But the best times, the happiest days, the moments I wish I could live over again and again? Gone in a flash. †Among others, from the days my daughters were born to the amazing trips Iíve taken on my quest to see the worldÖ my wedding day. Eight years or eighty, it went by much too fast and even after so many years, I wish I could go back and do it again- because it was really, really FUN. Time makes things more distant. Thereís a fuzzier edge now, around memories of swing dancing at my reception, seeing my husbandís face at the end of the aisle, and dancing with my dad. Things kind of become a home movie in your head after awhile- punctuated by Etta James and the Cure†and the album of wedding photos that now sits on the bookshelf in our bedroom. And itís actually kind of awesome.

 

I love being a wedding photographer. Weddings are, hands-down, my absolute favorite thing to shoot. I get to be there on the most important day of your life, from hair salons and the first sips of coffee (which quickly turn into champagne) to the hand-in-hand dash to your getaway car, amidst sparklers and cheers and a crowd full of love and exhilaration thatís literally contagious. (Seriously. You canít help but leave a wedding in a good mood, sore feet or not.) I really like being around people in love because it just really makes me happy. See? Weddings and I are pretty much soulmates

Some photographers shy away from weddings. And thatís totally fine. The beauty in having a job like this is that you get to shape it exactly how you want it to be for you. Prefer babies to weddings? Studio only? Nature, landscape, clowns? Whatever works for you– shoot what you love. I love weddings because itís everything about photography and emotion and life and living, all wrapped up in one day. Wedding stress doesnít scare me. In fact, I thrive under pressure. Youíre trusting me to capture the most important day of your life thus far, and guess what? Iím going to do just that. I get to help tell your story- about your love, your family, your wedding, and who you are as a couple.

Fun, offbeat, unique-to-you weddings are the best. Getting on stage at your own reception to rock out to Bon Jovi? Art gallery, nightclub, the library? Beachside? Mountainside? Barbershop quartet? A Super Mario cake? Cigar roller and a mariachi band? Believe it or not, the best part about planning your wedding isnít picking out aisle runners or cocktail napkins. Itís taking a wedding and making it your wedding. And while I believe all photographers have their own style to their work, myself included, I ALSO believe in making photographs that capture what your wedding is about. Thereís nothing unique about cookie-cutter images, and thatís not why Iím in this gig. Iím here to tell YOUR story- through every aspect of the day, every kiss, every look, every detail, every bar of ďDonít Stop BelieviníĒ. At my own wedding, we were high school sweethearts, ridiculously young and equally broke and just so ready to start our lives together. We danced to Glenn Miller, wrote our own vows, and barely had time to scarf down our really good wedding cake. (Also. Note: why doesn’t anyone warn brides that it will take†you ten years to†remove the ten pounds of bobby pins†from your hair that night? Really. Insane.)†

But at the end of the day, no matter how lovely the flowers or delicious the cake (and us wedding photographers do love wedding cake), youíre married to the one you love. All the little details and finishing touches are wonderful, but the real reason why you [and your guests + me] are there is to celebrate the bond between the two of you. And that love- the connection thatís so strong, it literally shows up on film- is what I love most about shooting weddings. Weddings are awesome. And so are you.

Meeting 2012 Head-on by +Raven

Well, my turn for a new year’s post.

Since joining Pinterest a few weeks back {and yes, I’m obsessed}, I’ve seen a ton of really awesome inspirational things. Words of wisdom, little reassurances, awesome images others have taken, etc. My favorite one by far, though, was this: “My 2012 New Year’s Resolution: Be Better.”

I’ve taken it as my resolution, as well. It really covers all manner of things, all of the things I want to – when you break it down – be better at or about. Fitness, my fashion sense {which is getting better}, my photography, how I treat people every day, how I treat myself, how I spend my time.

There are a lot of really awesome things coming up in 2012 that I’m so excited about. There’s going to be a lot of traveling, including South Carolina, New Jersey, Virginia, Connecticut, and even a bit back home in Atlanta.

I plan on exploding with awesomeness this year. So, watch out. <3

You.† Are.† Awesome.
