We were absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph Alex and Ashleigh’s wedding in Savannah, GA! Ashleigh grew up in the Charlotte area, and now that she and Alex live in Savannah, they knew they’d have a lot of guests traveling for their Georgia wedding. They wanted to highlight the beauty of Savannah and chose Bethesda Academy as their venue for it’s beautiful southern oak trees draped in Spanish moss. They incorporated Georgia peaches into their color-scheme and decor, and even had ice-cream sandwiches instead of cake from Savannah’s famous Leopold’s Ice Cream as a treat for their guests (a spectacular choice in the midst of the southern August heat). Alex and Ashleigh did a first-look which made their whole day flow with ease. All we had to do after the ceremony was steal away for a few snuggly shots of the newlyweds while the guests settled into the reception! Though it was hot, the whole day was simply beautiful… southern, classic, and truly joyful! Enjoy a few of our favorites from Alex and Ashleigh’s wedding in Savannah, GA!

Laura and Ross are two of just the sweetest people there ever were. To be a part of the day they became one was truly an honor! We had never met them before they booked with us, but from our initial meeting we knew we were going to get along great with them. Their engagement session was super fun, because they are super fun people. Laura’s bridals were a delight to capture, because she is genuinely a delight!
Just after their engagement session, we discovered that our baby on the way at the time, sweet Avonlea, had some heart and kidney problems and might need surgery after birth. I vividly remember posting to Facebook about this discovery, very fearful for what was to come. Well Laura is a nurse, and was working at Levine Children’s Hospital at the time. She took the time after seeing my post to message me and let me know that she worked, of all places, on the heart & kidney floor of the hospital, so if our Avie ended up needing surgery after delivery, she would take good care of her! I remember feeling so much comfort from that sweet thought of hers to reach out and let us know that! She and Ross even sent Avonlea an adorable onesie 🙂
We’ve seriously had a wonderful time getting to know them and had an absolute blast capturing this beautiful Winston Salem wedding day. Everything was so beautiful, including the new Mr. & Mrs. Howard! Enjoy a few of our favorites from Ross and Laura’s wedding day!
