Jekyll Island Driftwood Beach Proposal

Surprise proposals are a whole lot of fun! Take it from a guy who has been there, they can also be pretty stressful. Just trying to pick the right ring, the perfect location, and the most romantic words are difficult enough, but on top of all of that timing is everything. Dalton contacted me a few weeks ago with his plans to propose to Ellie during their visit to the area. After some consideration he decided on Jekyll Island. As luck would have it Mother Nature decided that we needed rain on the day he choose so we found a clear window of time and moved the proposal up a couple of hours, which worked perfectly for everyone.

Congratulations to Dalton and Ellie! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a special moment.

Romantic Mackey House Wedding

We knew from the first time we met Emily and Zach that their wedding was going to be a blast! We were smitten from the time of their engagement session, and not just because Alicia is a cat person and they brought Roo along for photos, but because they are a fun and loving couple. We were so excited when the big day arrived! Emily and Zach chose to have a First Look, so we could capture most of their portraits and wedding party photos before guests arrived. The timing could not have been more perfect, as the first trolley of guests arrived shortly after the bridal party went back inside.

Following the lovely ceremony by Rev. Steve Schulte, family photos, and few more couples portraits it was time to head to the deck for the reception. I absolutely love the colorful lights under the dance floor at The Mackey House! They always make for some interesting photos and DJ Diamond Dave kept the dance floor full throughout the night. We talked Emily and Zach into taking a short break to go down for a few fun nighttime photos by the fountain. Everything worked out perfectly!

Congratulations Emily and Zach! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

Jamie and Michael-Savannah Engagement Photography

The weather in Savannah can really be crazy this time of year. Throughout town you can see the beautiful azaleas in full bloom giving the impression that spring has arrived early. Most days I would completely agree, however once in a while we have one of those cool days that reminds us to not put the jackets away just yet. This past weekend we had one of those mornings and it just happened to be the morning of Jamie and Michael’s Savannah engagement session. The light was absolutely gorgeous and Jamie was definitely committed to getting the most from their session! She wore her coat and warm boots as we walked between locations, but braved the goose bumps as we took full advantage of the quiet early morning in downtown Savannah.

Jamie and Michael were so sweet together and Alicia and I had a wonderful time capturing their love! We definitely can’t wait for their October wedding!
