Shelby and Russ | A Modern Minimal Wedding in Marietta

Brick and Ivey

Shelby and Russ celebrated their small wedding at Brick and Ivey this past winter with modern and stylish touches mixed with a minimal design. I loved photographing these two and their families. It was a reunion of sorts for me since Shelby has championed my business for the last several years. She’s shared my name with many amazing women who became my brides, and I was thrilled to finally photograph her day!

Georgia gifted us with a perfect sunny day. One of the highlights for me was ending their portraits as the sun came through the trees creating gorgeous dappled lighting on top of Shelby and Russ. We enjoyed those final moments of light before stepping inside to begin the party. And party they did! Level Up Entertainment brought such a fun atmosphere to the room, and their guests (including myself) had fun at their luau-themed reception!

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!

Welcome to my journal! I'm Laura...
