Rebecca + Matthew {Fall Weddings at the Grand - Kennesaw, Ga Wedding Photographer}

I figured today would be a great day to look back on this wedding I had the pleasure of second shooting back in September with Martine Beher Photography!  This gorgeous wedding at The Grand in Kennesaw was jam-packed with gorgeous details, lovely littles, wonderful friends, and a whole lot of love!  

Weren't their details just so lovely?!  The Grand did a superb job with the decor.  Simple, clean, and just perfect for the day!

I got the honor of just hanging with the guys prior to the ceremony.  What relaxed guys Matthew had there!  Some shots, some cigars, and one big groom's surprise made for a fun hour or so.

Rebecca and Matthew opted for a first look.  I cannot express how much I adore when couples do a first look!  You reduce the stress of the day, knock out a ton of family and bridal party images beforehand, and just make for a far less rushed ambiance.

Aren't those littles just adorable!!  Oh, it was almost too much cute to bear!

These cakes... I don't even know where to begin!  Both were so tasty, and so well crafted!  The grooms cake was extremely personalized, with all the things any guy loves, sports and beer!  And their wedding cake was divine!  Not only was is knockdown gorgeous, but it tasted just as good as it looked, if not even better (I may have sneaked two pieces)!

All in all, I was so honored to be asked to help with this wedding, and wish Rebecca & Matthew many many years of happiness in their marriage!

Cheers!  xo

The Janeski Family {Capturing Family Memories} | Newnan Georgia Family Photographer

I was so excited when I first started discussing a family portrait session with Amie.  I photographed her kids so long ago (I believe it was way back in 2011!) and absolutely love getting to see them!   Jim and Amie are such wonderful parents, and their little minis are so much like them!  The whole family has such amazingly fun personalities and I was honored to take this holiday mini-session of them in Newnan.  Enjoy!  ~E.

Elliot + Annalee {Love at the Villa} | East Coast Wedding Photographer| Emily Marie Photography

I have known Annalee since high school, and she always seemed like that cool laid back chick who was always chill.  Well, they always say that people's true traits come out on their wedding day, and my original assumption of her, even from that long ago, held true.

Annalee and Elliot are a very laid back couple, and compliment each other perfectly.  Their wedding day wasn't stressful, rushed, or at all hectic, and I was so glad for that!  Not only did everyone have a fabulous time, but we had plenty of time for gorgeous romantic portraits of the two of them, which I am also grateful for!

From her vintage J. Crew wedding dress, to the crown of roses she wore, Annalee was a stunning vision.  And Elliot, in his well-cut gray suit, was nothing less than the most handsome groom.  Their wedding day was full of love and light and family and friends, and I know that their lives will be, as well!

So, as their wedding gallery is soon to be released, enjoy this look further into their gorgeous wedding day at Villa Franca Estates.

Brian + Jessica {"Up"-inspired Engagments} - UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens

These two, oh my goodness!  Up fans through and through.  Brian proposed on a mountaintop to Jessica with an adventure book for them to fill, and had a mailbox made with their hand prints (and the  hand prints of their kids!).  When they told me they were keeping the trend going for their engagement portraits and their wedding, I could not have been more excited!  Their love for each other fully shines through in their portraits and I am so looking forward to their Spring wedding!

Ariel {Rainy Day Bridals} - Dennis Vineyards, Albemarle, NC

Ariel is such an amazing free spirit!  These bridals are such a small reflection of all the beauty she has.  Now that her (INCREDIBLE) wedding has come and gone, I can share these bridal portraits.  Nothing was going to stop us from capturing these gorgeous bridal portraits of Ariel.  Not the cold, not the rain, and not even a wardrobe malfunction (yeah... not on the bride... on me).  Her and her wonderful entourage of family and friends were a riot, and really set the tone for the day, and let me get a hint of what I was in for at the wedding, but you'll get a glimpse into that later.  For now, just check out this beauty!
