Lisa & Chip

I spent Saturday at Goodwood Museum here in Tallahassee for Lisa and Chip's wedding. Mother Nature threw us a bit of a curve ball with afternoon rainshowers, but it didn't damper any of the fun!

A little fun with the wedding rings and some of the climbing roses at Goodwood.
Lisa's bouquet was absolutely stunning and was EXACTLY what she wanted!
I loved Lisa's dress-- it was so unique and the details were absolutely stunning up close.I see a lot of bride's in flats, flip-flops and slippers for comfort. While I absolutely don't blame them, I adore a pair of sexy heels!
Lisa's laugh is absolutely contagious-- just hearing her laugh makes you smile. While a lot of brides would be stressed over the rain and a few hiccups in the planning, Lisa's smile never faded.
Lisa's daughter, Heather, was entrusted with Chip's ring, so it went on her thumb!A few pre-ceremony portraits of Lisa-- and more laughs.Because of the rain, the ceremony was moved from the lawn to the porch of the house, and it was incredibly sweet and funny! Lisa even promised not to get mad during hunting season.
After the ceremony, we had amazing light for the couple's portraits. There is a small window of time at Goodwood where the lighting is absolutely surreal.A little fun with the guys.I even managed to capture a few of Chip's smiles!I don't think these two heard the lyrics of their first dance over their laughter and the comments of their nearby bridal party!I adore all of Katie's Cakes, but this is hands down my favorite. It was so stunning and it was yummy to boot!A little fun with the rings and the drinks.

JoAnna and Chris

JoAnna and Chris raced into town on Friday and had their engagement session yesterday-- just in time for their wedding THIS Friday! :) I had a great time with them at Goodwood Museum and I am really looking forward to Friday! JoAnna was so calm for being a long distance bride-- I remember how frantic of a bride I was trying to get everything and everyone in place for the wedding!

Nicole and David

Nicole and David are so hilarious to me-- they are such an opposite couple! He is tall, she is tiny; he hates being photographed, she loves it; she's girly and he's so macho... Its going to be a blast harassing David at the wedding in August!

Will's 11 month portraits

This morning I was at Goodwood Museum for Will's 11 month portraits. I can't believe he has gotten so big! I really can't call him a baby anymore! He is getting to be such a wild man, I think his mom is in trouble soon!

Materinity Leave... well kind of...

I would like to thank everyone for their warm wishes and for their patience as Thatcher and I recover and get into a routine. We are all doing well and really enjoying life right now.

I have been on "maternity leave" for the last month, but what that really means is that I have been furiously editing images and designing albums whenever I can get Thatcher down for a nap! So, with the chaotic pace of new motherhood, I have not had a chance to share our latest work, so bear with me as we fast-forward through a month of weddings!

The day before Thatcher was born, I photographed Sabrina and Karl's wedding at Goodwood Plantation. The elegant affair had a flair of the old south, with the old plantation house as a backdrop.

Ceremony and Reception Location: Goodwood Plantation
Catering: Manna
Flowers: Blossoms

Olyn covered the May 13th wedding of Heather and Clint at Woodbrook. With the beautiful spring weather, the couple exchanged vows by the lake and celebrated underneath the stars.

Olyn and our assistant traveled to Chipley to photograph the wedding of Chelsea and Dallas. The couple had a candlelight service followed by an intimate reception at the Groom's family home.
And a few of Chelsea's bridal portraits I did before the wedding:

I returned from my brief leave to photograph the wedding of Sarah and Adrian at St. Peter's Anglican Church. The bride's elegance and the couple's emotion combined for one of the most moving weddings I have seen.

And lastly, a few shots in the new studio of the new family!
