Crystal & Rae: Carnival Engagement Session

Listening to Crystal and Rae tell the story of how they met is an event itself. As they tell the story, the two of them go back and forth, each telling their favorite parts and interjecting comments when the other one messes up a detail. I can't tell it as well as they do, but I'll give you a short version of their story.

They met a mutual friend's birthday party that for one reason or another they each almost ended up not going to. But as luck would have it, Crystal and Rae both ended up at the party that night. Rae was about to leave, but when he saw Crystal walk in, he decided to stay until he had a chance to talk to her. After getting her number that night, Rae couldn't wait to see her again, and he called Crystal the very next day.

When Crystal suggested shooting their engagement photos at a carnival, I could not have been more excited! I love it when couples think of ideas for their engagement sessions that really reflect their personalities and relationship. I had a blast following Crystal and Rae around the carnival documenting their mini-date as they enjoyed the rides and games together. Just by the way they laughed and joked around with each other, it was apparent that they are absolutely crazy about each other!

Baby Mackenzie

Baby Mackenzie is a little over 5 months old and completely adorable. I had a great time photographing her baby portraits on Sunday afternoon. Mackenzie was happy and smiling throughout most of the session.

Here are a few of my favorites from her session. Enjoy!

The whole family!

Sean & Emily's Wedding: Kennesaw GA

Emily and Sean actually met each other at a wedding. They were crazy about each other from the start and before long the two of them were busy planning their own wedding. I had so much fun shooting this wedding with my friend Sheryl, and it was really hard to narrow down my favorite photos to share.

Everything about the wedding was fabulous from the beautiful decorations to their incredibly fun group of friends and family. But the best part was just how much Emily and Sean adore each other.

Emily and Sean chose to have a first look before the ceremony. I love when couples choose to do this. They enjoyed a private moment together and then we were able to take all their formals before the ceremony. As soon as they walked out of the church, they were able to head straight for the reception to celebrate with their guests.
