Suzanne & Mason + Mary Vance & Allen {Engaged}

IMG-3 The weekend after Christmas we get to shoot our first DOUBLE WEDDING!  Yep, these sisters are having their wedding together and it’s going to be one BIG celebration!  I have known Suzanne and Mary Vance most of their lives and am blessed to call them and their family sweet friends of mine!  Mason proposed to Suzanne last December and we began talking about wedding photography!  They decided on a December 2014 wedding and then May rolls around and Allen proposes to Mary Vance!!  I’m pretty sure it was in the back of their minds that they could have a double wedding and I know their mom was certainly up for it, but at first that’s not where they were heading with their wedding plans.  After considering all the options, they did decide they would share their wedding date with each other and bring all of their family and friends together at the same time to share this special time in their lives!  It is going to require some serious planning, but they have my dear friend and wedding expert Stephanie of Paper Ink to help along the way…. I am confident their day will be nothing short of perfect!  Needless to say, we will be starting pictures a bit earlier than normal on their wedding day and we are so excited to spend the day with these amazing couples!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their engagement session and be sure to make it to the end to see the most precious pictures of these sweet sisters!!

Jamie & Ethan {Engaged}

IMG-2Jamie and Ethan are so perfect together and aren’t they adorable??  Seeing them together, you instantly know they love each other unconditionally and they have a beautiful future ahead of them!  Kate and I spent the afternoon with Jamie and Ethan, loving the fall afternoon we were blessed with and taking beautiful photos to document their engagement!  We ended our session on a dirt road where trees form an arch over the road (ahhhhhmazingly beautiful). Then this little dirt road led us to Jamie’s families cotton field, it was beautiful!! This location was near and dear to Jamie’s heart and perfect for the two of them who cherish their families and their southern roots!

Olivia & Chris {Engaged}


Meet Olivia and Chris…..This couple had me from hello!!!  They are high school sweethearts who are finishing up their college education at Auburn – love it!!  This sweet bride came to me from one of my favorite wedding planner/designers, Lisa Thorne of Thorne and Thistle!  Lisa and I have worked together on several weddings and she is SO sweet to refer me to brides whose wedding she is planning – she is certainly an incredible matchmaker!

Olivia, Chris and I spent a beautiful afternoon together in Auburn shooting their engagement session!  Isn’t it incredible what you can learn about someone after just spending a few hours with them!  They are so genuine and such a fun couple to be around – I am confident their families and their friends count them as a true blessing!  And, now, I do too…. I’m thankful God allowed our paths to cross and that I get to share in this super sweet time in their lives!  I am beyond excited to see the dreamy wedding Lisa brings to reality for Olivia and Christ next May!

Elizabeth & Cody {Engaged}

IMG-55We met Elizabeth and Cody at Starbucks a few months ago… I love those first, get-to-know-you meetings!! A new bride contacts me, we share a few emails and then get to meet in person… it’s kind of like a blind date! It was such a joy to meet Elizabeth and Cody and I was SO excited when they chose to book us as their wedding photographers!!  They have a very special day in the works for next May at First Baptist Church of Eufaula and the historic Shorter Mansion, I can’t wait to share their day with them!!

Elizabeth and Cody have a very sweet, sweet love for each other and I can tell they are the best of friends and enjoy each and every minute they spend with each other!! They love Auburn football (and Cody loves Florida football a little bit) and they adore their fun-loving dogs who were excited to go the park!!  Enjoy some of my favorite images from their Auburn engagement session and to see more click here!
