Emily + Adam | St. Simons, Ga Wedding Photographer

Emily was calm as she and her girls got ready at her Grannie’s house Saturday morning.  She was excited, of course, but everything had been taken care of and if something was missing or went wrong that day, she wasn’t going to let it bother her.  She’d been waiting a long time for this day nothing could alter the joy of becoming Adam’s wife!

He was excited too, but he paced a little more as the excitement to see his bride walk down the aisle towards him continued to build.  His guys laughed with him and helped him pass the time and when it finally arrived, the moment they both had been waiting for, the emotion, joy and excitement was too much to hold in.

Surrounded by close friends and family on the southern coast of Georgia, Emily and Adam became husband and wife.  It could not have been a sweeter day nor anything been more perfect than it was.  Thank you both SO much for allowing Ben and me to join you on your wedding day.  Your friends and family welcomed us in like we’d been a part of your lives all along!  We’re so thankful for you both and the privilege it was to capture your first day as husband and wife.  We hope know you’re having a blast in St. Lucia but we also know you’ll be glad to come home to the same city, the same house, and not have to say goodbye this time!

I was kind of enthralled with her beautiful white shoes.

And the back porch at her Grannie’s house was the perfect spot for details and getting ready shots.


Her sweet maid of honor, Sarah, gave Emily the hanger for her wedding dress.

Such a classic beauty you are, Emily!


Emily had told me about the Avenue of Oaks on St. Simons… she also told me how much I would love it.  She couldn’t have spoken more truth!


It’s always fun meeting the bride and groom’s families, but it’s even sweeter when they’re a part of the wedding party.

I was so glad we were able to carve out time to do more portraits under the oak trees and Spanish moss…
