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!
Orry and Kodi were married in Monroe, GA at the beautiful Engine Room venue, which is part of the old Monroe Cotton Mill. Touches of their college allegiance showed up in all of the details of the day; from socks to the garter and all the way to their reception entrance…their love for UGA was only outmatched by their love for each other. As these two families came together, it was evident just how excited they were to be becoming one. It was a beautiful day and the beginning of a beautiful family.
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!
David and Katie were married on December 27, 2014 in Kennesaw, GA. Without a doubt, you can tell that these two love to laugh…and have surrounded themselves with godly friends and family that keep the laughter coming. It was a joy to be able to capture that laughter on their special day and couple it with the tender moments of worship. We wish these two a wonderful marriage and hope for the absolute best in all their days to come.

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!

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 a chance to spend a few hours with Troy and Morgan at there wedding ceremony back in April at the beautiful Carl House in Auburn, GA. It was our first time shooting there, and let me just say that it is an incredible venue. The gardens were phenomenal and completely set the stage for Morgan and Troy’s outdoor wedding.
We were only asked to film the actual ceremony, but the creative juices started flowing and we just couldn’t help ourselves when we saw Troy and Morgan about to see each other for the first time. I love First Looks.
My favorite part of the ceremony, as evidenced by the video below, was towards the end where the minister tells the groom that he may kiss his bride. Troy was so excited he practically couldn’t wait for the minister’s “ok” and jumped the gun a little early. It was great!
We wish Troy and Morgan the very best on their new life together!
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Chuck for quite a few years (since college…we took a basketball class together), so when they asked us to film his and Braden’s wedding, Trisha and I were ecstatic, to say the least. It hadn’t even been a full year since we filmed his brother’s wedding (Walt + Kayla) so we knew we were in for another treat hanging out with the Holland gang…
From rehearsal to the dinner to decorating for the wedding day festivities, even as a vendor, they made us feel like family. As a videographer, I can truthfully say that I love that because it allows us to work freely inside of our creativity and capture those intimate shots that might feel otherwise too intrusive to film.
As you’ll be able to tell from the highlight, Chuck is all about style. Everything matches…from the pink and blue shoes to the table decorations to the rings to the unity sand. It all ties in together. Even during the ceremony, you can see through the design (four aisles and four sets of chairs that form a spoke around the marriage platform) that it is laden with style purpose, not purpose to impress, but purpose to glorify God with their marriage. That’s extremely encouraging. What is beautiful is that even behind our camera lens, we are able to tell that the commitment that Chuck and Braden made to each other was pure and honest and destined for a lifetime.
Congratulations Chuck and Braden…here’s to a lifetime of happiness and Christ-centeredness!
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.
