A beautiful couple embarking on a beautiful new journey.

Here are some things I loved about Abby & Nathaniel’s 1-Year Anniversary shoot: their willingness to try anything, their precious husky pup, the yummy sunset and amazing weather, the evident love between the two of them that makes me look forward to being married, the fact that we didn’t set the forest on fire with all the candles we burned, special mementos scattered throughout the photos that they kept from the early days of their relationship, old trucks, awesome hair color, the fact that we shot these at the spot where I’ll be getting married in a few months, marshmallows, and a perfect fog that rolled in that gave the campfire photos a dreamy look. These types of shoots renew my creativity and remind me, once again, how fun this “job” really is.

We couldn’t have asked for a more peaceful evening to shoot Chip & Audrey’s engagement session. With the monsoon season apparently in full swing, I have been rescheduling sessions left and right. The air was muggy, yet with a gentle breeze that kept the gnats and mosquitos at bay. Tryphena’s Garden was in full-bloom and didn’t disappoint with locations to photograph a precious couple. One of my favorite things about Chip and Audrey as a couple is the fact that they smile with their eyes. Their love is apparent in the way they laughed with each other constantly during the session, their shy smiles, the bear hugs and hand-holding that took place during the session. I love this couple – they seem so content just being together – and I can’t wait to capture their love again during their wedding.

These are just a select few of my favorites from Amanda & Jacob’s engagement session. We shot on probably the hottest day we’ve had yet in Middle Georgia, but they were such troopers. I couldn’t get over how naturally beautiful Amanda was or the way Jacob seemed completely head over heels for her, even after several years of dating. I adore this couple and I’m so honored to be shooting their wedding later this year.
