Naval Academy Engagement Shoot | Annapolis, MD

  • Andrew + Katie | Engaged

realizing more and more that we are slowly becoming photographers for “Photographers”. I’ll probably do a post about this in the future one day but what I mean by that is we’re realizing that almost ALL of our brides are either professional photographers or own a decent SLR camera and really care about the quality of their images!! It’s a great target audience to have because these brides are ALL ABOUT their pictures!! Photography isn’t just another vendor to check off the list… they realize that these images will eventually tell the story of this exciting season of their life!

Barnsley Garden Wedding | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

  • Josh + Amanda

Have you ever heard the saying “Less is more”? Of course you have! Well that’s the reoccurring thought that I had during Amanda and Josh’s wedding day on Sunday. They decided to have a more intimate wedding day with only 40 guests. Their closest friends and family came to Barnsley Gardens Resort and spent the weekend with them. This place is just amazing. It’s so quaint and charming but most importantly, it’s relaxing! I introduced myself to Amanda’s dad at the beginning of the day and he told me that he had just played some tennis. Isn’t that awesome?! I’m sure my dad would have LOVED to have been so carefree on my wedding day that he could have played TENNIS!! what a dream!! I remember Amanda telling me through emails that they wanted their guest to have a great time and they also wanted to have a more laid back wedding day. They had JUST that.

that’s what we feel like!! Straight up gypsies! We’ve been staying at a different hotel the last three nights, living out of our rental car’s trunk and I even got ready in Target’s “Family Style” bathroom this evening! I locked the door and made it my own personal bathroom since we didn’t have time to check into our hotel before I spoke tonight. I changed, did my makeup and then plugged my curling iron in. The SCARY thing is that I placed the curling iron in the sink and while it heated up, I leaned forward to put on my mascara
