My favorite thing about being a wedding photographer, is getting the opportunity to document love. I am passionate about capturing the relationships of couples, and the connections they have to all of the people they invite to share in their wedding day. Last week my husband and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. Amazing how time flies! I still love going back and looking at the pictures our wedding photographer captured that day. Some of my favorite images from my wedding are of me walking down the aisle. I have a huge “Cheshire Cat” smile across my face, and  seeing it immediately transports me back to that moment and allows me to relive all of the joy and excitement I felt that day. Nine years later and I’m still smiling thanks to the three very special people below! Here are a few images from a recent impromptu family photo shoot we had in our yard in honor of Valentine’s day. As a mom, and a photographer nothing makes me happier then capturing moments like these where my girls are having fun, running around the yard, playing and laughing together. I know I  will blink and another 9 years will have gone by, and these two will be in full teenager mode, so no matter how much they protest mommy will keep taking pictures!

What is your favorite photo from your wedding day? Would love if you’d share it with me! Thanks for stopping by the blog.

I love all of the weddings I get to photograph, but this one was extra special, because the bride is also family. Jackie is my cousin, who I used to babysit when she was a little girl, so it’s crazy to see her all grown up and MARRIED! The wedding was held at the Blue Bird Farm, where Jackie grew up, and where my aunt and uncle still live. It’s a beautiful place, and made the perfect backdrop for their big day. Jackie and Adam have the most adorable little girl, and she got to join in on the fun for the first part of the wedding until she crashed out with the babysitter while the party went on into the wee hours of the night!

Adam and Jackie- Thank you so much for entrusting me with photographing your wedding day. I was honored to be a part of your special day and to help capture all the fun and memorable moments. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness! Love, Bre

All of the images from the wedding will be available shortly, if you would like to be notified and sent  a link when they are ready just leave a comment with your email address below, and I will let you know as soon as they are up!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog, please feel free to leave a comment and let me know you stopped by!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of doing a family portrait shoot with a very sweet family and their adorable daughter, Lucy. It was fun taking a break from all of the wedding photography I’ve been doing to run around and play in the grass with this little cutie pie. The grandparents were also in from out of town so they were able to join us for the shoot and get in on the fun. Nothing better then a grandparents loving up on their grandbaby to make for awesome pictures! My favorite has to be her grandpa giving her a kiss and her leaning in, I mean what a perfect little moment! You’ll see what I mean below…

 Thanks for visiting my blog, and if you or someone you know needs a portrait session for the fall now is the time to get it on the books!

A stunning couple, an amazing church and reception venue, and details to die for, the only downside of the day was the heat, but these two made HOT look good, as they strolled hand in hand around the golf course. I couldn’t wait to share some of my favorite shots I got from this wedding I helped Jason Hales Photography shoot back in May. The ceremony was held at Saint Brigid church, just down the street from me, and the reception was held at the prestigious Atlanta Athletic Country Club. Here’s the day from my view…

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek into Meredith and Chris’s beautiful day, as much as I did shooting it. Leave a comment below to let me know you stopped by to visit my blog and see what I have been busy working on!

  1. Bre! Great job! Wishing you lots of business success and growth! p.s. Love the way your logo looks with the rest of your brand & site.

When you live in Georgia there is no place that says “Atlanta Wedding”, like tying the knot in Piedmont Park. The only concern was the rain, and we lucked out, the rain stopped an hour before we started shooting, and gave us some perfectly overcast lighting just in time to take all of their wedding pictures. Jason and Heather decided to have a first look, so they could have a special moment with just the two of them seeing each other for the first time before the ceremony, and have the chance to get all of the pictures out of the way prior to the ceremony so they could spend more time relaxing and hanging out with guests at the reception. It was so great to get to capture the joy and excitement as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day! They are such a fun and playful couple that they kept me laughing the entire day, and it’s clear they will do the same for each other for many, many years to come!

Congrats Jason and Heather, I wish you guys all the best and am so honored you chose me to be your wedding photographer!

If you would like to see all of the images from Jason and Heather’s wedding, just leave a comment on the bottom of the blog with your email address, and I will send you the link when the gallery is up and ready later this week. Thanks, Bre

This time last year this little guy was in the hospital, born prematurely at 2.8 lbs and fighting to stay alive. He spent almost 2 months in the NICU before he got to go home. It’s amazing to see how far he has come in last 12 months! He is now growing like a weed, and ready to take on the world. His mom asked if we could do a mix of a lifestyle session with a first birthday smash cake moment, so we had fun playing with balloons, and lots of colorful messy icing! Happy First Birthday Michael!

Couldn’t resist one outake of this fun family in action behind the scenes:)
