Surprise Forsyth Park Proposal

Kyle and Mackenzie strolled along the tree covered sidewalk and stopped by the fountain. Kyle handed her a piece of paper. As she began reading a group of folks began peeking out from behind the pump house on the other side of the fountain. The moments seemed to pass in slow motion as Kyle began to pull out the ring and get down on one knee. 

Mackenzie said yes and clung to Kyle as their family members came out from their hiding spot to surprise her and join the celebration. 

Congratulations to Mackenzie and Kyle on their Savannah engagement!

Surprise Proposal at The Lost Square

To celebrate their anniversary Genevieve and Trent went to one of their favorite rooftop bars to read letters from one another and watch the sunset. As Genevieve was reading her letter Trent got down on one knee behind her. As she finished her letter she turned toward Trent and gasped with a pretty loud expletive. 

As the shock of the moment wore Trent had more surprises up his sleeve. A group of their friends and family had come out to celebrate with them. 

Congratulations to Trent and Genevieve on their engagement!

Unlearning Racism

I grew up poor in the South as the son of a single mother. We lived on food stamps in a trailer park. There was disparaging commentary on other races and stories which glorified the actions of hooded men in white robes. It was normal talk and it unfortunately was the way I was raised.

Things began to change for me when I was accepted to the Savannah College of Art and Design and moved to Savannah. On my first night in town, Floyd Adams was inaugurated as Savannah’s first black mayor. As I began to take classes, my world opened up immensely. 

My best friend was a Muslim from Turkey. I dated a girl from Central America, and made friends from all over the world. My perspective changed. I finally got to know people for who they were and not just the biased stereotypes I had been taught.

Historic Savannah Engagement Photography

Connection.. Man have I missed it! Having a busy wedding season forced into an abrupt halt has really thrown life off balance for me. Not only have I missed creating and capturing amazing moments, but I’ve missed connecting with our couples.

We had so much fun strolling through Savannah’s historic streets with Pete and Leah. Seeing their connection as Leah melted into Pete’s arms and documenting their love was such a joy.

I can’t wait for their fall wedding!

I Love My Job

I love wedding photography! That may seem like a no brainer coming from a wedding photographer, but believe me it’s not. I was at a photography conference in January and three different presenters mentioned during their talks how much they hated weddings. I mean we’re talking about world traveling wedding photographers who actually despise weddings. That’s insane!

I can’t imagine investing so much time into a day and not even enjoying it. Now I know they would probably say that they enjoy being with the people or documenting the party, but the fact that they don’t like the actual wedding day makes me wonder. For example, would I want to buy a cake from a baker who hated baking? Or read a book by a writer who hated writing? When a profession becomes more stressful than fulfilling, it’s easy to lose that passion for what you do. I’m happy to say that I’m truly passionate about what I do, and I’m so thankful for that.
