MAKING IT THROUGH LIFE WITH A LITTLE BIT OF AND A LOT OF
Here is the announcement you ALL knew was coming eventually …
After taking a year off from taking on new wedding clients, I’m finally ready to jump back in to wedding photography as a Southern Georgia wedding photographer. I’ve learned a LOT in the last year – mostly about learning to rest, and not to quit. We had such an explosion in our business in 2015 that it honestly overwhelmed me, and when Randy decided he needed to take more time off, I realized I didn’t want to do weddings without him.

November is the month to celebrate thankfulness, and boy oh boy are we thankful for our partnership with The Knot. Next week is Thanksgiving, and the official kick off to what Randy + I call Booking Season (cue the “it’s the most wonderful time of year” song). From Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day, we book more weddings in this 3 month stretch than any other part of the year; in fact, I’d say about half our bookings for any given year originates communication with us during booking season.
I’ve seen countless posts in various photography groups that I’m part of asking if The Knot is “worth it” and I can, unequivocally say … it is … for us.

Weddings are special days, but they can often be expensive in their extravagance, not to mention wasteful. Lots of the materials that go into staging a ceremony can wind up in the landfill, and this does not sit well with couples concerned with preserving the environment and conserving resources. Outside of eloping or heading to the courthouse, there are lots of options to split the difference, allowing you to have a modest-sized, meaningful ceremony (or adventure) that leaves a minimal carbon footprint.

I’ve been teasing all about Chad and Hannah’s rainy day wedding at the Wedgewood Black Forest all week on Instagram, and their blog is FINALLY HERE! Chad and Hannah are literally the most adorable couple ever; Randy and I had the best time with them for their wedding day last year in Colorado. Their wedding […]
One of my favorite weddings was Josh and Londee's mountain wedding in Estes Park, Colorado.
I loved this family session at Christ Church on St Simon's Island here in Georgia!
I loved this before-the-wedding bridal boudoir session done at home!
I'm normally all about sunsets, but this sunrise engagement session at Garden of the Gods in Colorado absolutely stole my heart!
Knowledge is power.
