ashley and david: may 5

Her eyes sparkled from across the room.

And he didn’t stop smiling.

Today was the day that they would start their life as one.  No more long distance.  No more saying good-bye to the person who held your heart.  Now they would go through all of life together.  In the same city.


Ashley and David, I’m overwhelmed when I think about the two of you.  Your graciousness.  Your humility.  Your hearts – for each other and for your family and friends.  I am so grateful for the two of you.  And for the fact that you two are now together.   As I looked through your images to prepare this blog, your genuine kindness blew me away.  From the gracious way you handled the “surprises” that happened on your wedding day to the way you made the kids present at your wedding feel like they were a part of everything.  Thank you for letting us document such an incredible day in your lives.  I’m beyond grateful for you two.


Ashley and David were married at the BEAUTIFUL Four Oaks Manor.  And let’s just say I fell in love with that venue and Georgia.  Right then and there.

The COLORS.  The STUNNING colors.  Oh my goodness.  Lauren’s Florals outdid themselves.


Meet Ashley’s dress.  In love…

And the ever-so-beautiful Ashley…

And her handsome groom, David.

I’ll admit it.  The putting on the wedding dress pictures are some of my favorite.  Just seeing my brides start to realize they’re getting married while family and friends surround them and help put it all together – well…it’s one of my favorite moments.  And these ladies?  I adore them.

As a pony-tail holder addict, this picture makes me so incredibly happy.  No wonder I love Ashley.

These next three images – THIS is why I do first looks.  It’s about this moment with so much emotion and so much love.


One of my favorite bridal portraits ever.  I asked her to give me some attitude and she brought it.  Oh Ashley…you’re the best.

The incredible bridal party…

This was the moment before she went down the stairs to walk down to her groom and say, “I do.”  Ashley…let it be said, you are STUNNING.

Day made.  David’s reaction when he saw his bride walking down the aisle.

I looked to the side and I saw this precious little one…

I love that moment when my bride and groom realize they’re MARRIED!

She’s so beautiful.

These guys brought it.

Love these girls…

I’ll admit it.  I didn’t close my eyes during the prayer before the meal.  But that means I didn’t miss this moment…

If you remember Ashley and David’s engagement session, you might remember that they met through Waffle House.  Which means it was only appropriate to have a waffle groom’s cake, right?  AMAZING.

I was able to sneak in a quick photo with my amazing couple before their grand exit!
