Winter Harper Fowlkes and Soho South Wedding

Alyssa's room was buzzing with activity as the ladies finished up their final preparations for the wedding. Things were a bit different on the other side of the Desoto, in Jordan’s room. I’m not sure if it was pre-ceremony nerves or if they were still recovering from the previous night’s festivities, but it  was much darker and things were moving a bit slower. 

After they were ready we headed out for the First Look. We positioned Jordan on the side of the Green Meldrim House to await his bride. Whether it was nerves or a hangover it all seemed to melt away as he turned to see Alyssa.

Lafayette Square and The Brice Wedding

As the carriage rolled into sight, the last guests left the protection of the small tent covering the coffee bar and made their way to their seats as a light rain fell over Lafayette Square. Bagpiper Caleb Harkleroad played Highland Cathedral as the kilted grooms made their way down the aisle.

 Gio and Juan Carlos have a mantra, “Happiness is a Lifestyle” and certainly showed as they expressed their love and said “I do” surrounded by family and friends. They didn’t allow the rain to dampen their day as we captured some joyful and romantic photos before heading to The Brice to continue the celebration.

Elegant Savannah Engagement Photography

I was watching the weather like a hawk. We photographed our first wedding of the year on Saturday and it was an absolutely gorgeous day. Sunny and 68 in January? Yes please! Now a cold front was heading our way and rain was pushing through ahead of it.

Sunday was overcast with scattered rain and it was beginning to get colder. I knew Madi and Chris were only in town for the weekend and I didn’t want Mother Nature to spoil their Savannah engagement session. 

Fortunately the light rain cleared out before the afternoon and while it was a little breezy Madi and Chris didn't allow it to bother them one bit. 

They had amazing chemistry and looked like they stepped right out of  a magazine!

My Secret Weapon

I was scrolling through a photography Facebook group and saw a post from someone searching for a second photographer. I was floored! It was Wednesday and they were looking for a photographer for a wedding happening in three days!

The thing is, it really shouldn’t be a surprise, because I see it all the time. Just about every week there’s a new post, looking for a second shooter for the weekend. 

I get it! Things happen and sometimes you have to scramble to find a replacement, but it feels like this is happening way too often.

Just a few years ago most wedding photographers worked alone, but then there was a change and more husband and wife photography teams appeared. Now, it’s kinda expected to have two photographers for every wedding.

Forsyth Park and The Whitman Wedding

Throughout most of my time living in Savannah, hurricanes have not been a major threat. Over the past few years that has changed. Last week we all watched and waited as Hurricane Dorian slowly headed toward the US. Thankfully the monster storm turned and headed to the north, staying well off our beautiful coast. I’m sure it caused plenty of tense moments for couples who had planned for months to have their wedding in areas that were being evacuated. 

Plamena and Justin had been planning their destination wedding for over a year. Family and friends would be flying in from near and far to celebrate with them. As the sun rose Saturday morning you couldn’t even imagine that just days before Savannah was a ghost town. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and Plamena and Justin’s day was so amazing.
