Beulah Grove Wedding
Novasia + James

Have you ever met a couple who were just a perfect fit for each other?  This special couple has been through more in their lives than most.  Their Beulah Grove wedding was one of the sweetest unions of two families, actually multiple families. One full of love and joy.

We were so lucky to be a part of James and Novasia’s big day.

They say the beauty is in the details.  The above is a special detail.  Novasia carried her parents with her as she walked down the aisle.  They may no longer be with us but will always be in her heart.

Now not all receptions have the kind of entertainment this one had…….try karaoke with someone who could actually sing – a sidekick and some backup dancers.  It was phenomenal.  Check it out.

Villa Christina Atlanta Wedding
Katrina + Cisco

Let us introduce you to a sweet military couple, Katrina and Cisco.  Even though they were stationed in Augusta, they wanted to have an Atlanta wedding so their friends and family from all over the country could gather together and they asked us to be a part of it.  

They found each other by happenstance.  Right place and the right time.  They say everything happens for a reason and everything happens in His timing, such is true for Katrina and Cisco.  Katrina was waiting for her ride on base while Cisco was dropping off a friend.  Of course if it was not for this friend, they may not have ever met.  Cisco’s friend called out to Katrina asking for her number for Cisco.  Katrina’s bold answer started their relationship – “he can ask for it.”  They were pretty much inseparable from that point on.

Notice the face on the phone?  That is Katrina’s brother who could not make it to the wedding.  Katrina’s dad during his toast was Facetiming him and allowed him to give some kind words to the newlyweds.  It was a sweet and touching moment for Katrina and Cisco.

Savannah Rapids Wedding
Danielle + Steven

Whatever shall we say about this Savannah Rapids Wedding?  It was awesome.  Let’s see if we can share with you a little about the wedding and this sweet couple.  Danielle and Steven have actually been together for 13 years.  Yes, 13 years.  Usually when a couple has been together that long, they have already tied the knot.   They just decide it was finally time…..that and I think Steven’s grandmother kept asking.   These two are really special and so is their little son.  Adorable family much loved by everyone.

The day started at the Sheraton for the getting ready preparations and quickly moved on to the Savannah Rapids pavilion for the finishing touches and a little pre-wedding reveal and photo session with the bridal party.

Augusta Saint Paul Wedding
Aezha + MarQuon

Today’s featured sneak peek features a couple who knocked their engagement session out of the park.  It was like photographing a couple of models.  That’s right, it’s Aezha and Mar’Quon.   This wedding day was full of fun and selfies.  Snapchat filters on Instagram photos and everything in between.  It was so sweet to see these two surrounded by friends and family throughout the day.  There was such a joy among all involved.   Here’s a little sneak peek into their Augusta Saint Paul wedding.

While Saint Paul only allows for wedding photographers to photograph from the very back of the church, we were able to get some really great images of the bride and groom exchanging their vows and rings during this beautiful ceremony.

Columbia County Amphitheater Wedding
Rachel + Trey

Occasionally, we get blessed with the opportunity to capture young love.  That is exactly what happened one Friday afternoon in November… a Columbia County amphitheater wedding for Rachel and Trey.  Evans High School sweethearts.  Trey has enlisted in the military and by the time you read this, he’ll have just left for basic training.  His date got moved up and so did the wedding plans.

We were sitting in the movies when we received a phone call and then several texts from Trey’s mom.  We connected with her after we got out of the movie and set the wheels in motion to be a part of this special day for these two.

The beautiful fall leaves of the park made for a beautiful backdrop for not only their pictures but also their ceremony.  Go ahead and enjoy some of the highlights here.

Always fun working with a bridal party who enjoys having fun and doing silly stuff.  You’ll see….it’s not always the traditional poses with us.

Laying on the ground and doing whatever it takes to get the shot, allows us to create something out of the box for the couple to remember.  Thanks everyone for playing along.

Rachel and Trey, we wish you all the joys life can possibly send your way.  Thank you for making sacrifices to help protect our country and our liberties.  May you have a happy future together and you always remember to lean on each other in the good times and the tough times too.

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day.

Piedmont Park Engagement
Copellia and Willie

It is always fun to introduce a couple to a new place.  That is exactly what happened during Copellia and Willie’s Piedmont Park engagement session.  They live thirty minutes away and had never been.   The truth is, we were supposed to meet up somewhere else.  Unfortunately, that location was locked up tighter than Fort Knox.  On to Plan B.

Let me tell you a little about these two.  They have a banter between them.  One of those where if you did not know them you would think they don’t like each other.  Picking back at forth.  It was cute.  In all honesty, they adore each other.  Can not wait to photograph their wedding next year.   Here is a sneak peek from their session.

Perrys Landing Wedding
Stevie and Patrick

What a joyous occasion.  Being a part of Stevie and Patrick’s Perrys Landing wedding was a huge honor for us.  Perrys Landing is a beautiful venue too.  A magical place for a wedding.  Stevie and Patrick are a fun couple with a great love of God and family.  It was displayed all during their day.  Whether it be a prayer with the pastor before the ceremony, the sand ceremony with one sand representing Christ or the communion they shared, their Savior was a big part of their special day.

We are pleased to share with you a few highlights from their day.

One of our favorite things is getting to steal the couple away for a few moments to get some sunset pictures.  Here are just a couple we captured after the ceremony.

Met Erin and Todd.  A fun and somewhat whimsical couple.  Lovers of music festivals.  Sweet and unique.  They chose to have a Boathouse wedding in downtown Augusta Georgia.  When they started telling us about some of the fun things they had planned, we could not wait to see for ourselves.  We had the pleasure of getting to know these two during their May engagement session.

Richmond on Greene Wedding
Brittany and Matthew

It is finally time for us to share some sneak peeks of Brittany and Matthew’s Richmond on Greene wedding.  These two high school sweethearts tied the knot on a breezy October afternoon in downtown Augusta.  You may remember them from their engagement session earlier this year.  These two were so very ready to exchange their nuptials.

Their beautiful ceremony was held on the pool deck of the Old Richmond Hotel, now Richmond on Greene.  A great venue for a wedding or private party.  Brittany wore a dress from the House of the Bride along with a cathedral veil.
