Kelsie + Eugene | Cotton Field Engagement

Tuesday, November 25, 2014













Last weekend I got to spend the evening with Trey's cousin, Kelsie, and her fiancĂ©, Eugene, photographing their engagement session at Hard Labor Creek State Park + the cotton fields of Bostwick, Georgia.  We are all so very excited for them and can't wait to see these two get married next fall 2015!  Until then, I get to share their love story and the beautiful images we captured that day. . .<3.


Eugene and Kelsie started talking on June 6, 2013. Her best friend Taylor was dating Eugene’s best friend at the time, (they are now married) and she gave Eugene Kelsie's phone number.  From their first phone conversation their connection was instant!  They began talking everyday.  Eugene was everything Kelsie wanted and had ever hoped for in a man and she knew he was the one.  







Eugene lives in Eastman, GA, and Kelsie lives in West Point, GA, which didn’t bother either of them because they liked each other so much. Even though they hadn’t met each other yet, they both knew what was started between them was a good thing. 














Eight days after starting their phone relationship, Kelsie + Eugene finally got to meet in person.  As she walked down the steps of her house she could see Eugene pulling into the driveway. They met at the door, he was holding a bouquet of flowers. <3.










Their first date involved dinner and a movie.  They were so comfortable with each other and he treated her like I she had never been treated before.  He still wasn’t officially her boyfriend though and when the weekend was over, he went home and they made plans to see each other again.  She asked him on June 23 to officially be her boyfriend and of course he said yes.











During their ten month anniversary of being boyfriend and girlfriend, Kelsie + Eugene were took a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee with their good friends.  Kelsie was hoping he would ask her to marry him, but when he didn’t do it the first day, she figured this wasn’t the right weekend.  



On the second day of their vacation they decided to go on the sky lift up the mountain.  While on top of the mountain, 1600 feet up, Eugene asked Kelsie to pose for some photographs.  Before she knew it he was on his knee, holding her hand and asking her to marry him! 




I can't wait to photograph your wedding at Del'avant in October 2015!
Love.

Taylor + Chad | Piedmont Park Wedding

Thursday, November 20, 2014


Taylor + Chad's story began in high school. Towards the end of their freshman year, they met each other on a church ski trip. They became close friends while taking a class together in their sophomore year. Chad had a crush on Taylor for months and eventually asked her out in April of their sophomore year. They dated all throughout high school and when it came time to go to separate colleges, they decided to continue their relationship. In that time, their relationship evolved and they began discussing the idea of a life together.










After graduating and getting jobs, they talked about marriage pretty seriously. In April of 2014, they decided to take a trip to New York.





















On the day of their 8 year anniversary, April 8th, 2014, they took a romantic walk on the Brooklyn Bridge. While overlooking the Manhattan skyline, Chad handed Taylor a love letter. . .
















Taylor knew what was about to happen!  <3.  After she finished reading the letter, with her heart racing, she looked down to see Chad down on one knee asking Taylor to be his wife.


















After photographing the newly MR + MRS in the glorious sunset of Piedmont Park we headed to their reception at Monday Night Brewing.










Such a fabulous venue for a reception!




I loved photographing their first dance. <3.






I especially loved the tie wall!  We use it as our backdrop for the photobooth. . .so cute!






























Congratulations Taylor + Chad!!! Thank you so much for having us there to document your gorgeous wedding day!!!
Love.
