Engagement

Lyndie + James // Couple Session // Cortona, Italy

It all started when Rhia said, we're living and teaching in Italy next summer, so you should plan to visit us.  I thought, no way can I afford to do that, but I'll try! Because how often do your best friends LIVE in Italy and invite you to stay with them?  The more we talked about it the more I thought I just had to make it work out. Over dinner one evening, I mentioned to Lyndie and James that I was going to Italy to visit Rhia and Jeff and James exclaimed that they should go, too.  10 minutes later, we had decided to take off work, pick some days in July and make arrangements to go together! 

I am so grateful for their companionship during our trip.  We experienced some really great things, walked many, many miles and learned a lot about Italy and each other.  One of things that I really wanted to do while we were there, was taking portraits of Lyndie and James and Rhia and Jeff and their kids.  Below are my favorites of Lyndie and James.  I'll make another post with the images of Rhia and Jeff's family.

Bertille + Joe // Couple Session // Athens, GA

Just a mini-session to celebrate their time together! I worked at Cheeky Peach with Bertille and really enjoyed getting to know her.  She and Joe moved out of state and I miss seeing her.  So glad I got the chance to get her in front of my camera :-) She isn't a fan of photos and it had been 4 or 5 years since she and Joe had been in a photo together! And their sweet dog?!?  Anika is just the cutest :-)

Bertille + Joe // Couple Session // Athens GA

You know, I work at Cheeky Peach, right? Well, I do.  I have so much fun taking photos of all the cool clothes and adorable models. Bertille also works for Cheeky Peach and is the lady behind all the marketing and online presence.  She needed some photos for her immigration paperwork (she's French) so we met up for a quick little session with her husband and adorable little puppy!

 

Jessica + Sam // Anniversary Session // State Botanical Gardens of Georgia

Ya'll, where does 10 years go?  How is it that I still feel 24? Will I ever feel older than 24? I sincerely hope not ;-) Jessica and Sam got married in Athens in 2006 at the State Botanical Gardens with all of my favorite wedding vendors.  Jess mentioned that their 10 year anniversary was coming up this weekend (April) and I immediately told them that we should shoot a mini anniversary session at the botanical gardens!  I was so excited when we actually made it happen!

This first set of photos if from their engagement session, 10+ years ago!  Can you believe that these photos were hanging out on my online server?

jacks creek farm photos Have you ever been to Jack's Creek Tree Farm?  If not, then you're missing out!  I hadn't been before this session, but since have had the pleasure of visiting a couple more times.  The family that owns it is delightful and they were super nice about sharing their property with us.  Katherine and Clint are excited to share that they are going to have a little BOY!  So exciting!!
