Montaluce Engagement Session | Tracy and Jimmy Engagement Shoot | Montaluce Winery

To view Tracy and Jimmy's slideshow click HERE.

Their Montaluce Winery engagement session is one of my favorite sessions I've ever done. These photos speak for themselves. But for those of you who need a little more than just photos I posted Jimmy and Tracy's story of love below.

Tracy and Jimmy met at North Georgia and almost instantly became BEST FRIENDS. They talked about everything together and eventually started dating. A big part of their story is their faith in Christ and relationship with Him.

Tracy and Jimmy started dating and living as non-Christians, but after a good friend, Evan Lowell, pointed them back to Christ, everything changed. Tracy says, "I realized I had been living for me before I surrendered my life over and I definitely believe I am a 'new creation' now!"

In telling their story, Tracy writes, "and now we are getting married!!!!!!!" (notice the plethora of exclamation points):) 
I cannot wait to photograph their wedding at Montaluce Winery and Vineyards on November 13th, 2010!

New Best of the Week Photo Contest | Atlanta Wedding and Portrait Photography

September 20th? I cannot believe it. My Groupon deal came out 2 months ago. Time really does fly.

Thank you all for being so faithful in voting. I will continue to hold this "Best of the Week" photo contest every week, because I really value your feedback. What a journey this has been to photograph over 230 different groups of people in the past two months!
I also enjoy giving 'prizes' away each week ($10 print credit to Pictage) because doesn't it always feel good to win something? I am one of those people who never wins anything! :)

Whatever Monday morning means for you (extra coffee for me), I hope its a good one!

Sarah Esther Wedding Photography | Congratulations Courtney and Thorne!

Courtney and Thorne. They have lived every Hollywood movie's fairytale. Thorne was the quarterback in high school and Courtney a cheerleader. The two have been dating since they knew what dating was, and are truly made for each other. 
I met Courtney through a good friend of mine who recommended me to her and we knew we were fit for each other from our initial meeting! 
Both Thorne and Courtney grew together in their years at UGA, and Thorne knew before Courtney that they were meant to be together. Courtney needed more time, as marriage is a big decision! Thorne was patient and he got the girl:) 
We did their engagement session last fall at North Campus at UGA. Their wedding took place Aug 7, 2010 in Greensboro GA. The day started at the Cuscowilla Golf and Country Club on Lake Oconee. Fantastic grounds, and a great place of relaxation before the big day. 
The ceremony was beautiful, as they exchanged their vows. Together FOREVER. 

The guests danced the night away at the picture perfect Higdon House
First Dance

The guests wished Courtney and Thorne a great marriage and a wonderful new beginning in NYC with sparklers! 
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Thorne Brown!

Brad and Laura Engagement Session | Atlanta Engagement and Wedding Photography at Colony Square

Zero interest. Laura and Brad met, and Laura pretty much blew him off.  Brad didn't give up and Laura's affections for him grew. Sensing a pattern? Its all about persistence, isn't it guys? (See Lisa and Brian's story below). Brad and Laura began a dating relationship, he proposed, and are saying their vows this month!  Brad is a man's man, and Laura is the quintessential girly girl

Their engagement session was captured at Colony Square, one of my absolute favorite places to shoot in Atlanta. It is the perfect blend of city and nature, and we had some gorgeous light to work with...of course, with working with these two, everything looks more gorgeous! They will be married at Lake Lanier Resort this month, saying their vows over the very lake that serves them daily. 

Big Thanks to Van Michael Salon in Buckhead for providing Hair and Makeup.
