The pair celebrated their nuptials in the heart of Atlanta at Callanwolde Estate this Spring.

A bride and groom take their engagement photos at Meadowlark 1939 in Griffin, Georgia

Meadowlark 1939 is one of my favorite locations for engagement portraits for many reasons. It is calm, quiet, and I love that I feel completely immersed in nature.

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!


Piedmont Park served as the perfect city backdrop. Christie & Brian's love story began on the outskirts of the iconic Atlanta landmark, so it was only right that we journeyed here for their engagement photos.
