Jessica and Mike: Driftwood Beach Wedding

Mike and Jessica blog-25

I love Jekyll Island, and this couple made me love it even more! Jessica and Michael are so sweet, and I truly felt a part of their family as I captured the emotion in their photos.  Jessica commented that she cried at least three times even before the ceremony.  I’ll admit, I teared up too.  The love was definitely felt between these two, and among their families.

What an honor it was to be there for this adorable and loving couple! Thank you for the opportunity, Michael and Jessica!

Melanie and Aaron: Mackey House Wedding

Melissa and Aaron blog-20

What is the formula for a great wedding? A fun-loving couple, a beautiful venue, and great food by Cape Creations Catering is a pretty good start. We had such a wonderful time with Melanie and Aaron during their recent Mackey House wedding! The temperatures were a bit warm outside, but through some great planning, we were able to limit the wedding party’s time out in the heat before the wedding and still maximize the photographs we were able to capture around the venue. Melanie and Aaron were amazing to work with, and never once complained about the heat. The ceremony was absolutely gorgeous and everyone had a great time during the reception.

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

Sara and Kale: Jekyll Island Engagement Photography

Sara and Kale blog-1

Southern summers can mean for some challenging weather, and with that, a lot goes into planning the perfect time for a photo session. Vacationing from Indiana, Sara and Kale were excited to have their engagement session on Jekyll Island’s Driftwood Beach. We planned around the tides, and prayed that the weather would hold out as the forecast was looking a little spotty.  Thankfully, although it was raining just a short distance away on St. Simons Island and on the north side of Jekyll, our little area along Driftwood Beach remained picture perfect!
