    Hi, Emily. To book your session, please follow the instructions in the post above — and complete the contact form there. Thanks! Hope to hear from you soon. 🙂

Glorious little bubbles of effervescent love soda surround them. Okay.. that sounds weird. But it’s the best way I can think to describe my day  with Lizzy and Cory. We photographed their engagement session near their home in Charlotte, NC, and I loved every moment of it. One passerby got it exactly right when he shouted to us, “Wow! Wow! I just love to see HAPPY PEOPLE!” I’m so excited to share the rest of their beautiful (and often hilarious!) images soon.. but we hope you enjoy this little gem in the meantime…

Anxious to get your Lizzy and Cory fix? Family and friends can pre-register here to see more photos! You’ll be notified when their gallery becomes available so you can have as much as we did!

Quotes:

  • We thought it would be cool to be wedding photographers, but we had no idea what we were getting into.
  • As soon as a stranger called us, we realized we could make this work!
  • We invested first in education and marketing, rather than a lot of camera gear.
  • Giving a great client experience is the hallmark of our business.
  • We were overworked at first. We didn’t understand systems or workflows.
  • Keep up Momentum. Photography is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
  • Personal projects allow us to learn something new without the pressure of a paying client.
  • A starving artist can’t feed the hungry.
  • Don’t be offended when a bride shows you her Pintrest board.

Atlanta,Rhodes Hall,bride,castle,dress,groom,historic,mansion,spring,wedding,

A wind of ease and contentment seemed to blow across his face when he turned and saw her. She stood before him in her wedding gown, a breathtaking picture of beauty and strength. Timeless moments may be harder to find in the rush of modern life. But this was one of them. A moment of deep awareness and contentment.. and joy and laughter!

As Jessie and Jim promised themselves to each other, the close family who gathered around them at Rhodes Hall castle lent so much heartfelt support and love. You could see the enthusiasm in their eyes, even when their eyes were occasionally fixed on cameras to photograph the lovely couple! (Of course we can totally relate to that instinct!) They know something that Jessie and Jim are just beginning to learn — that a moment like this can be transformative in the best possible way. That it only increases in significance as time goes by. And that the simple act of looking back after years of challenge, growth, and love can fill the soul with the meaningful joy that makes life so precious.

Congratulations, Jessie and Jim. You two are a powerful combination! We wish you so much success and joy along the journey!
