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:

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.

When I was working in Miami last month I photographed this beauty and her session just never made it into my blog.

I had so much fun working with Marla. She is seventeen and one of the most happy, genuine people I know. Us cubans do this huge celebration when a girl turns fifteen; it represents a coming of age, and entering society as a lady. A huge part of this tradition is a photo shoot in a formal, princess-like gown and other fashionable outfits. How fun is that?!

Life got in the way for Marla around her fifteenth birthday. So here we are, two years later, catching up with tradition and having a blast while doing it. The plus side is less pressure to perform. At seventeen Marla has an amazing outlook in life and a real knack for letting go and having the time of her life, even if her heels are killing her.

I adore this couple. They are one of the sweetest, kindest, most down to Earth people I have worked with. Kristy is a southern girl with a modern twist: polite, outgoing, and always with a positive attitude, but she is also extremely humble and compassionate. Chris is just laid back, go-with-the flow, and a complete gentleman. He’s told me on a few occasions how excited he is to marry his girl and I just love him for that.

I was shocked to see how nervous they were at their photo session. They are not crazy about being photographed and were happy that they were getting to practice before their wedding. The way these turned out I say you guys passed the test ;)

Did I mention I adore these two?

Chris and Kristy are both braniacs. She is is doing her doctorate in pharmaceutical science and he is a high school math teacher. So we started our session with a little scholastic fun!

and Chris is a baseball junkie and coaches little league, so we headed to the ball field for some more shots…

Chris, after seeing the following shot you shall no longer be nervous in front of the camera ;)

Kristy, you are simply breathtaking…

Lalala…love

The small bridal cottage at Meadowlark Gardens was a whirlwind of garment bags, feminine laughter and floral perfume as I returned from photographing the groom and his family. “West is dying to see you” I told Meagan and her mega-watt smile beamed unabashedly, and nervously. The day was racing up to this moment when they would see each other in private for the first time. Trying to approach it calmly, delaying it almost an impossibility. Meagan and West are so drawn to each other, almost magnetically. This energy permeated through their first look, and their beautiful wedding this past weekend. Looking back through the photos I could feel it in every image. The way they look at each other just radiates love.

Here is a small peek into their day…

“I am not really affectionate in public” was one of the first things Kelby said when I arrived at their brand new house yesterday. Hmmm, right. :)   For the entire duration of their engagement photo shoot yesterday, Kelby could not take his hands off his gorgeous fiancee. Looking through all the shots, I am amazed by how protective he is of his future wife and the bond these two share. They play and goof around like high school sweethearts and if there’s anything that their brand new home won’t be lacking, it is laughter and affection.

Heather and Kelby share a love for cooking and baking. We started their engagement photo shoot in their brand new house.

Gimme some sugar :)

Heather’s family has this huge property where the wedding wilk take place in September. Heather has an amazing, close-knit family. Her aunt had this swing made and hung on the property in honor of Heather and Kelby the day before the shoot. Isn’t that the most thoughtful gesture ever?

I LOVE this shot!

Heather, you are breathtaking!

And this is Kelby doing his GQ special :)

These two are my favorites. You guys look incredible!

See the complete slideshow of Heather and Kelby’s engagement photo shoot here.

Thank you guys for letting me into your lives to document your love. your wedding is going to be a dream! Hugs :)
