Mary Brantley and Lee

I had the most wonderful time shooting Mary Brantley and Lee's wedding with Amelia Strauss early in August. I don't know why it was especially wonderful, except that MB and Lee are adorable beyond compare. I have never seen a couple so in love and comfortable with each other that they can express affection unabashedly in front of two cameras. This sounds like they're cheesy, but let me tell you they are not. I kept saying, "You couldn't have picked a more perfect couple if you had a casting call!!!"

So, thank you MB, Lee and Amelia for including me on such a special day. Here were my favorite moments.

Bundle of Joy

I recently had the privilege of spending an afternoon with the Hogue family to celebrate and document the birth of their newest addition. This sweet, southern family was already delightful with 2 boys, but baby girl just rounds them out perfectly. And if you could SEE the biggest brother with his baby doll for a sister, you might just melt.

I think that photographing babies and children is one of the hardest, because it's physical... you're a clown, an acrobat and a photographer all at once. I'm never completely sure what I've gotten when I leave. I was very excited about the results, and so I'm sharing with you! Congratulations Hogue family and thank you for including me.

Laura and Cooper- Sneak Peak!

I've known OF Laura for a long time through my husband. We had met a time or two, but I was surprised and thrilled when she asked me to shoot her wedding to Cooper. The day started out rather iffy- VERY rainy and gray. The rain stopped and held off the rest of the day (good luck for them) and the clouds stayed, so we got really great light for the photos. As we started shooting, Laura said "I love having my picture made." Every photographer knows that makes for a fun subject! We had a blast and it was a gorgeous ceremony. Laura swore just before she walked down the aisle that she would not cry. "Why?" she said. And I don't know if you can tell, due to blogger's not so stellar image quality, but there are tears welling up in those big blue eyes as her daddy prepares to give her away. Laura and Cooper, thank you for allowing me to be a part of such an important day. I hope to be there for more in the future!
