A Taylor Grady House Wedding with Classic Southern Touches | Schuyler & Joseph

A Taylor Grady House Wedding with Classic Southern Touches | Schuyler & Joseph

Schuyler and Joseph chose the Taylor Grady House in Athens, Georgia for their wedding celebration. When I arrived, I immediately noticed how the morning light hit the historic columns of the home.  I love wedding mornings for this reason – the light is soft, and the day feels calm with anticipation.

This was the sweetest of wedding days, complete with an enthusiastic wedding party and a fun dance floor under the tent. I loved Schuyler’s ability to mix classic, Southern charm with stylish glam touches throughout! There were so many gorgeous details wrapped up in this day and pulled together by Stella Harper Events, and I’m so happy I get to share it today!

Schuyler and Joseph are the most genuine and joyful couple. This year put a lot of strain on couples planning their wedding, but these two remained focused on their love for each other, creating a safe and festive atmosphere for their guests. They chose an outdoor ceremony, followed by an open-air, tented reception, fun cocktails and plenty of dancing!

the Taylor Grady House


welcome to my journal

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

let's meet!


North Beach was the perfect location for Nicole and Rob's Tybee Island session. While they played with their pup, Lucy, I simply followed. We ran together on the sand, not worrying for once about dirty hems or windy hair.

Christie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals.

I was honored to be able to capture my second photographer's sweet family for her birthday and Mother’s Day present. We played on the grounds of Meadowlark 1939 and came away with the most lovely photos of her and her family.
