Anna & Jordan | Heirloom Engagement

Anna & Jordan’s engagement was one of the most memorable sessions I have done this season. For the second look for their engagement Anna planned to include some family heirlooms. The result is so beautiful and full of meaning. She chose to wear her great grandmother’s dress, which is the same dress her mom wore for her wedding day exit. How sweet is it that all so many generations have worn it? They also included meaningful family jewels and an old church pew. Their sweet pup also made an appearance at the end. I adore dogs almost as much as babies, so naturally I loved including her. This gorgeous oak grove setting was family land as well. It couldn’t have been more perfect. I loved Anna & Jordan’s sentimentality. Paying homage to your roots is a Southern trait that I greatly admire. I have no doubt their Spring wedding will be even more sweet!

Baby Ansley

Our sweet friends Rachel & Brian are due to expect their sweet little girl to make her entrance into the world any day now. We are giddy with anticipation to say the least. We are thrilled our little E will have a playmate very soon. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of doing a little maternity session for them. I have to admit that I haven’t really loved maternity images until now. I guess having a baby of my own might play a part in that! Of course, it’s hard not to love these. Rachel is such a beauty. She is ever the classy, natural stunner, and as sweet on the inside as she is gorgeous on the outside. It’s an honor to call her friend! We can’t wait to welcome Ansley into the world you two!

Beautiful images! I love the one of them sitting and he’s kissing her arm, so precious! ^_^

Laura & Brandon | Intimate Nocatee Wedding

 Laura & Brandon’s beautiful September wedding was met with some dreary, dark weather, but that is not at all how I would describe their day. The whole day was full of warmth and a celebration of true love that shone bright. Laura could not have been a more stunning bride. After months and months of being on this journey with these two, seeing their day come together was sheer delight. They didn’t plan the smallest affair, but all the meaningful details made it feel so intimate. I love that they chose to use family china, heirloom jewels and sweet tokens in memory of those who had passed on. The little ones in the bridal party stole my heart as well. I really couldn’t get enough of Laura’s adorable nieces and nephews! It was truly a perfect day.

Jennifer, I just saw these and they are perfect! The photos couldn’t be more beautiful.

Kaylie | Gentle Beauty

 I admire strong women, passionate leaders and go-getters who make things happen. There are countless I could name that inspire me. Their strength is beautiful. But there is also another side to womanhood that I greatly admire – gentleness. It is often overlooked as weakness, but I don’t think so. There can be so much strength in gentleness. I think it can be one of the most mesmerizing qualities of womanhood. It is a mysterious and natural virtue that brings forth a certain je ne sais quoi. Whatever it is, Kaylie has it. Her beauty exudes from such a sweet and natural place. Her gentle soul is a priceless gem. It also doesn’t hurt that she’s effortlessly gorgeous. I am honored to call her friend.

Stunning is the same word I’d use! Kaylie looks so beautiful!

Biltmore Estate

About this time last year, my sweet friend Ashley and I took a trip to visit the Biltmore. It was a surprise for my birthday. (I know, I lucked out in the friend department!) I realized today that I never shared those images and I wanted to remedy that immediately! It was one of those weekends that you never forget. It was the perfect time of year with the perfect friend. Cheesy, I know…but it’s true. I’m so glad we took a few images before our tour of the estate. I will treasure them forever. I wish I could have taken photos inside because it was all so mesmerizing. Thanks for the trip of a lifetime Ash!

 She couldn’t be more beautiful, right? Love that girl!

 Seriously, such a stunner!
