I’m just as excited to share Part II of Andrew and Savannah Alexander Homestead wedding as I was to share Part I. There are so many gorgeous portraits of these two in this post, I just couldn’t narrow them down. Andrew and Savannah had a stunning Rolls Royce pick them up and we got the opportunity to do some additional portraits at sundown with the car. It was an great combination and they tuned out amazing so be sure to scroll all the way down to see.
See the couple below? On this very same weekend last year I was photographing John’s sister’s wedding as this very same location, when Lauren went in labor with their son, David. She made it to the hospital and delivered him within 3 hours. We had such a good time recounting the experience!
Savannah and Andrew’s wedding was my first wedding of the season and it could not have been a more perfect day. These two were so easy to work with and are absolute naturals in front of the camera. The wedding took place at the beautiful Alexander Homestead which offered so many gorgeous backdrops. My favorite thing about the day though, was how in love Andrew and Savannah are… particularly how smitten Andrew is with Savannah. I love photographing love like this and it is such a reminder of why I love this job so much. Congrats Andrew and Savannah, it was such a joy to be apart of your day.
Oh sweet Sarah… What a blessing this girl and her man have been to my family since we have gotten to know them. Sarah is our neighbor along with the rest of her and Tommy’s family and we love the whole McClellan bunch so much (as do our boys!). Unfortunately, I already had a wedding on the books for Sarah and Tommy’s wedding date, but we thought it would be fun to put together a vintage bridal shoot with Sarah’s great aunt’s wedding dress. I LOVE LOVE how it turned out and Sarah was definitely a natural in front of my camera. My sister Amy from Carmen Carman Salon e Spa did a fabulous job on her hair. Stay tuned tomorrow when I will post some vintage processed black and while images from this session.
Congrats Tommy & Sarah!
Oh my goodness, I LOVE Misty and Shane! After being on maternity leave, I was so ready to pick up my camera and get to shooting again. These two made it so easy and totally reminded me why I love my job so much. We started out in Misty and Shane’s adorable backyard tucked away in the heart of Plaza Midwood. We then went to the area around where they had their first date, Central Coffee. We also did a few shots with Misty and Shane’s beloved cats. I don’t typically post a lot of pet pictures but given the type of cats and how much these two love them, I couldn’t help myself. I’m not sure the cats were a fan of me, but I definitely enjoyed having them in front of my camera.
During the session, Misty shared with me that she had always hated having her picture taken. I hear this a lot and I usually take it with a grain of salt, but when she shared that she had NEVER been in a single one of her high school yearbooks because of this, I knew she was serious. What an honor to be able to take Misty’s picture after so many years of her not wanting to be in any pictures at all. Misty, you rocked the camera and you are seriously BEAUTIFUL. Shane you didn’t do too bad either.
Enjoy this gorgeous couple!
