Happy New Years Eve!! Brandon and I can’t hardly believe how fast this year has come and gone and all the new journey + adventures it has brought our way. The biggest adventure, hands down, has been moving to the North Georgia Mountains and now calling Dahlonega Georgia home. We absolutely love it here with the gorgeous mountain views, warm breezy summers, vibrant colored cozy falls, chilly crisp winters and glories springs that unveil beautiful wild flowers all around us. Life is very blessed and we love what we do.
If you have been following the blog for a while you know that each year we do a behind the scenes year in review. If your new to the blog, this is one of my favorite post to write. Our behind the scenes look shows us at our craziest, corniest, and all out worst moments… once you see the faces we make in some of these photos you will understand why I use the word worst:) So here it is, us doing what we love for people who are in love! Enjoy…
I figured I would start off with one of Brandon’s famous wedding selfies.
Seriously… my legs look chopped off in this tall grass like a bad photoshop job… but no thats me, I am just that short.
Oh this is the look on my face when Brandon is checking lighting and I am in “creative thinking” mode before the shoot begins. The eyebrow up always happens when I am thinking creatively.
I love his attention to detail.
This photo of me heading up the stairs to the bridal sweet just fills me with creative happiness. I know its a simple shot but just so timeless.
The red beard in the background, tie undone, top two shirt buttons open and laughing hysterically while holding the groom up so we could all see his cut socks is my husband. This was the last photo of the night as we shot the wedding of our sister Erin. Well technically Erin is Brandon’s sister, my sister-in-law, but I love her and her new hubby David so mush that to me they are kin.
At every wedding there is a moment when I breakout in the kind of laughter that makes your eyes tear up, stomach hurt and knees buckle. This is that moment caught forever in a photograph. Some people say they are ugly cryers, but I would have to say that I am not a very attractive laugher, when its the full out gut busting laugh, as you can see here. the proof is in the photo.
I had to share this photo from Katie + Tony’s wedding day. I posed Katie for a photo and then from the corner of my eye I caught Tony pulling out his cell phone, behind the scenes, to get a pic of his gorgeous bride. I have to admit she does look absolutely epic in this pose.
Loving the perks of being a wedding photographer, you get to drive a gulf cart at country club wedding venues. I guess you could call this a to-go selfie.
When the groom is fully suspended in the air by his groomsmen, has to retrieve the garter using only his teeth I jump right into the craziness allowing me to capture the unforgettable look of the brides face.
To all our beautiful and amazing 2015 clients…we Thank You from the top to the bottom of our hearts. It is your love, joy and radiance that inspires us + unlocks our creativity.
