She Said…Finally! Savannah Proposal


I love proposals! It’s one of the few times a guy can actually spring a surprise on an unsuspecting girlfriend. Hieu contacted me to coordinate photos as he proposed to Shanna, his girlfriend of 6 years. He planned a romantic getaway to Savannah and wanted to propose at the fountain in Columbia Square following a carriage ride.

My assistant and I staked out the square and waited for the couple’s arrival. As they got to the square and prepared to toss in their coins in the fountain to make a wish, Hieu got down on his knee and pulled out the ring. Shanna tossed in her coin and then said…“Finally!”

Congratulations, Hieu and Shanna!

Charming Southern Wedding at Bethesda Academy


As a wedding photographer, I hate to play favorites. I love every one of our couples and am always excited for their wedding day. Once in a while, a date gets circled on the calendar and I just can’t wait for it to arrive! For my assistant, Alicia and I, that special wedding was Paige and Cesar’s beautiful Bethesda Academy wedding. Now I will admit, that a bit of it had to do with how much fun we had with them during their engagement session, but mostly it was because of the amazing location. We have had the opportunity to work on the grounds of Bethesda Academy in the past, but knowing now that they will soon no longer be hosting weddings, it took on an extra special meaning.

Congratulations Paige and Cesar! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

Savannah River Queen Wedding


Katie and Ryan are one of the sweetest young couples I have had the opportunity work with! Reigning from Ohio, they were glad they chose Savannah for their destination wedding due to snowy weather and cold temperatures back home.  The beautiful couple chose to have a first look outside of their vacation home on Gaston Street.  Once their eyes met, their wedding day nerves relaxed and the two lovebirds soaked in the intimate moment.

After a stroll near Forsyth Park, we all headed to the Savannah River Queen for their wedding. They were surrounded by family as the ship’s Captain performed a beautiful ceremony for the excited couple.

Congratulations Katie and Ryan! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
