Social Distancing

Social distancing. Every year there’s a list of the most used words or phrases released. I have no doubt that “social distancing” will be on that list. Not only have we been hearing it mentioned multiple times a day, but we can see it everywhere we look. 

Many restaurants are closed or have removed tables to all for adequate social distancing. There’s even tape on the floor at many checkout lines to mark the recommended distance we should be standing from the next person in line. Heck, the last in-person 12 step meeting I attended had the chairs set up about 3-4 feet apart in a giant circle.

Right now it’s affecting every part of our daily lives. Friends are anxious and worried and you just want to give them a hug and let them know it’ll be ok, but you can’t. 

No matter how much some of us try to deny it, we’re social creatures and nothing is more social than a wedding. It’s a day filled with hand shakes, hugs, and lot’s of love being poured out on one another. Guests sit elbow to elbow for the ceremony and gather around large tables for the reception. You pass bread and hang out with close talkers, then you pack in on the dance floor with even closer dancing.

Joining Forces

Man are we living in some strange times! People are walking around wearing masks, stores are out of toilet paper, and some of our favorite restaurants are closed. The bustling historic streets of my beloved Savannah are way too quiet. 

Our reality has temporarily been altered and we have no idea when it will go back to normal. All of this uncertainty has caused a lot of anxiety during what should be an exciting time for those planning 2020 weddings.

I know things are super stressful right now, so I want to reassure you that we’re here for you! We’ve already been working with our fellow wedding vendors to schedule new dates for the spring weddings that have been affected by gathering restrictions and venue closures. 

Things are still a bit foggy as we move forward into the year, and honestly it’s a bit much for a solo photographer to handle alone, which is why I’ve joined forces with fellow Savannah wedding photographer Angela Hopper in order to better serve our couples.

Preserving Memories

Spencer sat on the couch with the big book overflowing from his little lap. A wide grin covered his face as he flipped the pages. He was about two at the time and this wasn’t a Dr. Seuss or Pete the Cat book that had his full attention, it was Mommy and Daddy’s wedding album.

You probably recognize this story because it isn’t just our story. This one goes way back for generations. You probably remember looking through your parents or grandparents wedding album when you were a kid. A wedding album isn’t just another book. It’s special. It’s a part of your heritage, your family history.

Don't Hang That Dress From a Tree

So this may come as a shock, but I’m just gonna go ahead and say it… A wedding dress looks better on a bride than hanging from a tree. Whew! I’m glad to get that out. Now I know that may ruffle some feathers, but it’s the truth. 

Now I’m as guilty as anyone here. We’ve all done it. Most wedding photographers at some point have taken the dress and gone out to photograph it hanging from a tree, the side of a barn, a chandelier, or some other dramatic picturesque scene. The thing is I’m not even sure why.

Sweet Tybee Island Wedding Chapel Wedding

The Tybee Island Wedding Chapel has long been one of my favorite venues. Add in a super adorable couple and you get one pretty spectacular wedding day. Sarah and John’s friends and family all agree on one thing. Sarah and John are the perfect match for one another. Spend more than 5 minutes with them and you can easily see why. 

From the sweet ceremony to all of the personal touches the day was magical from start to finish. Plus, you hardly ever go wrong with a live band and Leopold’s Ice Cream. John,  being a musician himself, totally stole the show when he joined the band for a song.
