Historic Savannah Wedding at 10 Downing

Alisen and Vinny have this amazing chemistry- it’s like watching a real time romantic movie.  I know that’s cheesy to say, but really, these two are absolutely perfect together!  I knew from their historic Savannah engagement session just a few months ago, that it would be a spectacular wedding for the books!

The two were surrounded by loving family and friends on their beautiful day. Everyone enjoyed this gorgeous destination wedding, even if it was a scorcher out there!  Married at 10 Downing, Alisen and Vinny opted for a First Look in order to take most portraits prior to their ceremony so they could enjoy more of their cocktail hour with those who traveled from so far away.  We enjoyed photographing around the area of Churchill’s, playing on the scenery of beautiful downtown Savannah.

I love the connections I make with couples while preparing for and photographing their wedding day.  These two are no exception, and I’m happy to now call them my friends.  Congratulations, Alisen and Vinny!

Vibrant Savannah Engagement Session

Savannah is such a beautiful and romantic city and I am so blessed to have it as my studio. It seems that around every corner a new backdrop can be found. Add in a gorgeous couple and you have the perfect mix for a magical photo session. Chris and Ariel wanted more of a “city” feel for their session so we kicked it off at the Trustees Theater before moving along Broughton Street and then down to the river. We ended the evening on Hutchinson Island with River Street as the amazing backdrop.

I had such a wonderful time with Chris and Ariel and I cannot wait for their wedding in 2016!

Tybee Lighthouse Wedding


What do you get when you mix temperatures in the upper 90s and an outdoor wedding on Tybee Island? You have one sweaty good time! Leanne and Tyler chose to have a First Look before the ceremony so we picked a location under the cover of old Oak trees to give a little relief from the early afternoon sun. After capturing some beautiful portraits of the couple we returned to the rental home to cool off and take some photos with the wedding party.

The ceremony was held on the north beach near the jetties and Tybee’s Mayor, who happens to be related to the bride, officiated the ceremony. The reception was held in a beautifully decorated tent on the grounds of the Tybee Island Lighthouse.

Congratulations Leanne and Tyler! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special wedding day!
