Mac and Chelsea were married at Southall Meadows in Franklin, TN on September 11, 2015. I’ve known Mac for a number of years and was excited to be a part of their special day.
With a venue like this, you can’t help but want an outdoor wedding…despite the threat of rain. Dodging in and out of buildings and under umbrellas, the few showers that passed through only aided in the beautiful backdrop of the ceremony and pictures that we would capture.
But once the ceremony was over, the real party began as food trucks arrived for dinner and the dance floor opened. It was an incredible night with some wonderful people and a whole lot of laughter.
We wish Mac and Chelsea all the best!
Jon and Lindsay were married at First United Methodist Church in Athens, GA on a brisk January day. Lots of pictures and lots of laughter would be a good summation of this beautiful wedding as we captured the First Look at the Botanical Gardens, stopped by the UGA Arch for a few shots, then ventured on to the church for the ceremony.
Surrounded by greenery, the reception back at the Botanical Gardens capped off the whole wedding day as the newlyweds danced the night away with friends and family. We wish these two the best!
John and Lauren were married on April 5th at Fair Weather Farms in Monroe, GA. With a gorgeous lake as their backdrop and even prettier weather they shared their vows in front of friends and family that truly loved them and wanted to be around them…which was evident by the energetic crowd that saw them off…still ready to keep the night going.
The country feel of the day, cowboy boots and all, made for a wonderful afternoon and some amazing shots. We had a blast watching their dog, Jake, run and jump (and even pose) while we captured the moments. Also, pralines. Oh, man, those pralines. I’ve been licking my lips every time I edited a clip with one of those delicious delectables.
John and Lauren, we wish you the very best and are excited for your new life together!

Ben and Abbie were married in May at The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm in Cleveland, GA. With scenic views for miles and and the overwhelming peacefulness of being in the North Georgia Mountains, this wedding was bound to be an exciting time with the energetic bridal party, rain or shine. And rain it did, right before the outdoor ceremony…but only enough to make this an even MORE memorable occasion to celebrate a beautiful bride and dapper groom as they shared their vows with family and friends.
Congratulations Ben and Abbie…we wish you the very best!
Edward and Heather were married in Birmingham, AL on May 11, 2013 at St. Paul’s Cathedral. With only a few scattered showers throughout the day, we were able to capture some great footage on the grounds at the church and some scenic views of Birmingham from a local bridge, not to mention the beautiful cobble stone street below.
The entire day, from getting ready to the ceremony to the celebration at the reception was an absolute joy to be a part of and we wish this couple the very best in their new life together.

Jesse and Rachel have such a sweet relationship together and it was evident throughout our time with them on their wedding day. Just watch the smile that comes across his face when those church doors open and he sees his bride for the very first time in her extravagant wedding dress.
They were wed at Eagles Landing Baptist Church on July 28th, 2012 with a reception that followed at Eagles Landing Country Club. With a wedding dress fit for a magnificent ball, a cake that looked like it was straight out of a wedding magazine, and a groom completely in love with his bride, this day shaped up to be absolutely perfect for these two newlyweds.
Jesse and Rachel, we loved getting to know you and we wish you the very best in the years to come in your new life together!

Aaron and Lindsey were married at “The Farm” in Bishop, GA. The weather could not have been more perfect…all day there was a breeze and the setting sun served as a perfect backdrop for lifetime vows. As we followed Aaron and Lindsey around throughout the day, we were quick to realize just how pertinent it was that we were using microphones, because they kept us laughing the entire time…through the first look, on the ATV ride, and throughout the evening…and we haven’t stopped laughing throughout the editing process.
The ceremony itself was a beautiful display of Christ’s love for the church and you would have been pretty hard-pressed to find a dry eye as they read their vows to each other. You could really tell that each part of the service was specially crafted to preach the gospel.
The reception that followed was indeed a celebration as it seemed that the people there were growing exponentially. Delicious Bar-B-Q and music ensued as the night drew on and the dance floor remained packed to the rim.
After all was said and done, we LOVED being a part of your day, Aaron and Lindsey, and we’re excited for all of the amazing things in store for your life ahead!

Brad and Cat are some of our close friends in Athens. One of the best parts of our pregnancy has been experiencing some of the same things since they got pregnant around the same time we did. Their son, Fisher, was born yesterday, so I thought it’s now or never to share some of the maternity pictures that we got to take with them back at the beginning of the summer. Excited for the
two three of you and can’t wait for Leeland and Fisher to be best friends.
We had the privilege of filming Andy and Katie’s Wedding a few weeks ago at the gorgeous Braselton-Stover House. There were A LOT of unique things about their wedding, especially the ceremony. ; some of which I can’t wait to share with you once the editing is done, but in the mean time, I wanted to pass along this creative idea that Katie helped ponder up.
We set up a Video Booth during the reception in which all of the guests could come by and pull a card out of a bag. Each card had a Truth or a Dare written on it and the guest was required to answer/act it out. What resulted was 30 minutes worth (final edit) of hilarity and shenanigans and I can’t wait to show Andy and Katie the whole thing.
But in the meantime, there’s this 5 minute clip of some of the silliness that took place.
Best wishes to Andy and Katie! If this video is any indication, you’ve surrounded yourself with entertaining friends that will always keep a smile on your face.
Keigo and Judy were married on a perfect October morning in one of the gardens on the University of Georgia campus. From the very beginning they were all smiles for the cameras and you can truly tell how much they absolutely adore each other. (Just listen to how Keigo says, “WOW!” when he sees Judy for the first time).
From the ceremony we walked over to La Dolce Vita where they were able to eat, smile, and laugh with all of the friends and family that were there to share in their wedding.
It was such a pleasure to be a part of their big day as two families came together and we wish them the very best!
Special thanks to Mark Bridges for being a second cameraman for the day.
