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:)

Dee & Eric – Harper Fowlkes + Jepson Center – Savannah wedding

I looooooooooooooooooooved shooting Dee & Eric’s wedding in Savannah this past Spring.  It was the perfect blend of Savannah’s historic & romantic charm with crisp modern details.  The day started with the gals getting ready at the gorgeous Harper-Fowlkes House – a beautiful historic house turned museum + venue in Savannah that offers a splendid array of fine antiques on which I photographed Dee’s amazing bridal accessories… Harper Fowlkes House Jepson Center Savannah Wedding Harper Fowlkes House Jepson Center Savannah Wedding

Ethereal wedding inspiration

You may have seen this shoot show up in the beautiful pages of Smitten (Issue #10) or on the Weddings Unveiled blog, but I’m super excited to finally share it in its entirety.  It sure did take me long enough as this was shot on the coldest day of January in Savannah.  I know this because this is the gorgeous home of talented Shea Slemmer (super talented painter) – and this part of her house has no roof.  Or heat.  But it didn’t stop us from making a whole lot of pretty – the biggest thank you ever goes to Lauren Davis for getting into a metal tub in a wedding dress.  (Don’t worry, no models were hurt).  Feast your eyes on this ethereal goodness.

Jenn & Seth – an urban Atlanta engagement

I could not wait to meet Jenn & Seth for their engagement session in Atlanta – we had not yet met face to face but I knew we would be instafriends.  These two fell in love while attending SCAD and both work in creative fields.  They love pups and craft brews and were planning a fun, laidback wedding – it was a no brainer that we’d be a good fit.  I met them at The Stacks in Atlanta – a hip loft apartment complex with industrial architecture that made me swoon – and then took advantage of the über adorable Cabbagetown neighborhood nearby.
