Back in June I was so fortunate to collaborate with some awesome vendors in the Atlanta area to put together this bridal photo shoot inspired by summers in the South.

My friend and talented designer Misty Smith created the rustic chic tablescape, with garden inspired accessories that gave the setting an airy, charming vibe.

This photo shoot was published by the fabulous ladies at Sparkle and Hay bridal blog, one of my favorite publications for rustic chic wedding inspiration. Enjoy!

Vizcaya Gardens remains one of the most beautiful places to photograph in Miami, and it was the perfect backdrop for Arletty’s elaborate quinceanera gowns. Looking like she had hopped out of a storybook, she sashayed her way around blossom lines pathways and statues like a true princess. My favorites from the shoot:

On the car ride to her photo shoot location, Dany and I talked. She was wrapped in a cloud of fluffy while tulle; feeling beautiful and a little apprehensive like every  fifteen year old girls who gets to be princess for a day in the customary cuban fashion.

We talked and covered boys, college, classes, and friends in a short twenty minutes. Although it always boils down to the same topics; I love having a glimpse into these girls lives, their distinctive personalities and their fresh, reachable dreams. Dany in particular is kind of quiet and shy but has big plans, and I have a feeling she may just make them real.

Here are my favorites from her session:

I had the pleasure to photograph two lovely girls in Miami this week. They are both very sweet ladies and I had a great time setting such pretty subjects against some of the most beautiful scenery in South Florida.

Stay tuned for more of these two sessions. Here is a little taste of them:

With this couple and me it may have been love at first sight, we clicked from the very beginning and there just isn’t much I haven’t already said about them.

Maybe except that Kristy is one of the funniest people I know. Yes, she is beautiful, and she is just as beautiful on the inside, not for one moment taking herself too seriously, or demanding to be the center of attention, but naturally radiating that genuine happiness that draws everyone to her.

That draws Chris to her.

He lead, managed, took care of details behind the scenes on his wedding day, making sure everything was perfect, not to impress, but for her. So that his bride would have her perfect day. He has this innate ability to give and put others first.

Kristy, Chris, it was such an honor to be part of your day. Here are my favorites from your beautiful wedding:

I love it when one of my sweet¬†nice couples refer to me their equally nice friends. Brittany, Justin and I hadn’t officially met in person before their engagement session today, and I was so glad to find that we hit it off immediately and had an absolute blast.

The chemistry between these two is off the charts! As I uploaded their images from our time together and worked them, I couldn’t help but feel the sparks flying between them.

Brittany and Justin: Thank you so much for allowing me to orchestrate and document this celebration of your commitment to each other, and be witness to your bond. Keep holding on to one another tight!

We started at the field where Justin coaches football. After a lot of persuasion, he has finally turned his better half into a Missouri fan…

Brittany you looked so cute in your Missouri¬†University tee it’s not even funny.¬†:)

I believe the following set is my favorite:

Then they glammed it up several notches for some shots out on the town.

There is more! View the complete slideshow of Brittany and Justin here.

Summer is the time when everything slows down. The hotter the thermostat registers, the greater the need for lazy time by the pool or the lake, for late afternoon picnics, outdoor cooking, naps, reading carefree novels.

The way kids embrace the summer philosophy of life is invigorating. Unplanned moments turn perfect as impromptu concerts in the park and popsicle laced bicycle rides develop. I caught my girls in one of those wonderfully unstructured moments today. Here is a glimpse into their summer.

I feel like it’s Christmas morning every time I get a shipment of wedding albums. Maybe it’s the fact that I am an avid reader and books appeal to me. Seeing the¬†story of a wedding told through a beautifully bound leather book makes the memories tangible and ever-lasting. I love the feeling of picking up a fat, heavy, luxurious volume and sitting down with a cup of tea to look through old memories.

I believe a great wedding album should be timeless, so I keep mine clean and simple. I want my brides to be just as proud of their investment twenty years from now as they were when they received it. This one was a gorgeous Italian gray leather with a modern square layout and lettering.

The inside design is as streamlined as the exterior. I avoid busy collages that take away from the main focus: beautiful images that tell the story of the day.

A companion album is a smaller, more portable version of the wedding¬†book. It can easily be taken with you to work or¬†get-togethers to share with wedding memories with your friends and family.¬†They also make excellent thank-you gifts to parents. They are classic and chic covered in buttery leather and engraved with the bride and groom’s names or a special quote.

Georgia has grown on me in the past four years, or is it five? When I first moved to this small town from a big, bustling city, I felt so out of place. Rather than being soothed, envigorated by its expansiveness I felt smothered.

As the months went by and I drove through the quiet country roads to our new home in Newnan, its peace started growing on me. The pastures, the cows, the intense green and painted white houses surrounding my neighborhood became nurturing, familiar. I still get my fill of the city life when I go visit my parents several times a year, but inevitably, as I drive back to my southern house in Georgia, it feels like home.

I am moving this weekend; just¬†fifteen minutes away from my current home. This is a new, exciting chapter of our family’s life and I am so excited to be at this stage. But as I hustled to get last minute details squared away for moving, I had to pause and photograph some spots that I have become attached to. Spots I drive by every day and have become part of that comforting, homey scenery that helped me fall in love with Georgia.

Sometimes life throws curve balls. Like a prophecy that the world will end on your wedding day, or the DJ forgetting the song for your first dance, or the power going out during the reception toasts. Challenges like these can discourage even the most cheerful of brides. When it comes to our wedding day, we want everything to be perfect.

But life is not perfect, and it is sometimes among the chaos that the best opportunities arise; a chance to cling on to your husband for support, to know how blessed you are to have friends who will walk you through any crisis, a chance to value what really matters in life. A chance to cut your wedding cake to romantic candlelight, to the sound of laughter and celebration,¬†rather than electrical lights and a random song blasted from the DJ’s speaker :)

Life doesn’t always happen the way we plan it. Brittany and Matt had an unconventional,¬†whirlwind of a wedding to match their unconventional,¬†unique love story. The crazier the circumstances, the more they hold on to each other, lift up each other. They have that kind of love.

Here are some of my favorite images from their special day…

Their first look :)

Everything about Brittany was pure class and elegance.
