Mallory & Bradley – The Watson House Wedding – Emerald Isle, NC

Mallory & Bradley‘s was the very first wedding ever that I had to deal with every wedding photographer’s dread – RAIN!  But Mallory and Bradley did not let the afternoon pour stop them from being radiant, sweet and nothing short of perfect.  The Watson House provided the most gorgeous backdrop for the day and offered guests cover while we waited for a break in the rain – I love that Mallory HAD to have her ceremony outside – good girl!

The hour wait for the rain to pass so that we could hold the ceremony outside was worth it! The grounds at The Watson House overlooking the water are beautiful and Mallory could not have been happier to finally see her groom.

Preppy Red Bluff Plantation Wedding – Savannah Wedding Photographer

I teamed up with Savannah’s best wedding vendors to create a styled shoot for this year’s Fall issue of Savannah Weddings Magazine.  Look out for this shoot on the cover and go grab a copy now, its beautiful!

Definitely one of my favorite projects, I love how Audrey of French Knot Studios created a marshy coastal wedding – equal parts preppy and hip.  We wanted a fall palette that paid homage to the area’s natural colors and that could be used season round.  Navy, sea blues & greens, earthy tones & pops of orange did the trick.  I am completely smitten with this thoughtful invitation suite from Lavender & Honey.

Red Bluff Plantation provided the most beautiful backdrop – it felt like we were on vacation!

Urban Poppy created the beautiful bouquets and French Knot Studios added the hanging knot as a finish touch. Red Bluff Plantation Wedding

A massive sail adds a lovely & rugged look to the ceremony site, hanging ropes and a chandelier adds visual interest.

Thrive Catering provided the delicious spread.  They are simply the best and their service is unmatched. Red Bluff Plantation Wedding Red Bluff Plantation Wedding Red Bluff Plantation Wedding Red Bluff Plantation Wedding Red Bluff Plantation Wedding

Natasha Gaskill is hands down the best pastry chef around – for this creation, she handpainted a marsh scene directly onto the cake and added an intricate sugar bloom.

Tiffany & Sean – Dairy Farm engagement – Savannah, GA

When your conversation is mostly about kitties and good food, you know you’ve found a perfect bride.  When you found out she fell in love with her man over Art History, you know you’ve found a perfect groom.   These two are amazing, so full of laughter and so incredibly in love with each other, you can’t help but smile and giggle when you’re around them.  Which is my favorite.  For their engagement session, we began at their home – I love this because its intimately personal and a direct reflection of who you are.  It also helps when your house is as cutie cute as theirs:)

We then headed for an adventure at the Old Dairy Farm in Savannah – this secret little gem is tucked away and woodsy so I love the sense of exploration that it provides.
