Barnsley Garden Wedding | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

  • Josh + Amanda

Have you ever heard the saying “Less is more”? Of course you have! Well that’s the reoccurring thought that I had during Amanda and Josh’s wedding day on Sunday. They decided to have a more intimate wedding day with only 40 guests. Their closest friends and family came to Barnsley Gardens Resort and spent the weekend with them. This place is just amazing. It’s so quaint and charming but most importantly, it’s relaxing! I introduced myself to Amanda’s dad at the beginning of the day and he told me that he had just played some tennis. Isn’t that awesome?! I’m sure my dad would have LOVED to have been so carefree on my wedding day that he could have played TENNIS!! what a dream!! I remember Amanda telling me through emails that they wanted their guest to have a great time and they also wanted to have a more laid back wedding day. They had JUST that.

Stunning… that’s the word that I would describe Corey and Melissa’s ENTIRE wedding day.  It was just amazing. The scenery, the timeline, the portraits, the LIGHT!! AH! This was my last wedding for the 2012 wedding season. I have another one coming up in late December but Corey and Melissa ended the non-stop shooting spree that has lasted from April 14th until this past weekend. WOW. You would think that after 30+ weddings, we would be a little exhausted and burned out… but God has been really faithful in that area of my life this year. The closer I have gotten to the end of wedding season, the more inspired I feel. Maybe it’s because I know that the end is in sight… or maybe it’s because I have AMAZING

A Stonewall Golf Club Wedding

  • Beau + Jourdan

The next two weeks are PRIME time for fall colors. The trees are BRIGHT and the light is soft. It’s amazing. As Jill and I prepared for the wedding day to begin, we talked about portrait locations and the opportunities were endless. Bright trees, water, glowy light… it was just an overall beautiful day! Beau and Jourdan were married on Friday at the Stonewall Golf Club in Gainesville, VA. The patio where the ceremony took place overlooks the course and a lake….it’s a perfect setting for a small, intimate wedding. As guests arrived and the music started playing, the bride and her girls prepped inside the clubhouse. Now this bridal party wasn’t just any bridal party,
