Lake Lanier 50th Anniversary Session | North Georgia Photographers

Tis the season for sessions by the lake!

When Vanessa and her sister Heather asked their parents what they wanted for their 50th Wedding Anniversary, they told them all they wanted was for everyone to be together. So together they would be! They came to our little corner of Northeast Georgia to vacation together along the banks of Lake Lanier. As they celebrated this milestone moment in life they invited us to join them and capture some precious moments of them altogether. We had so much fun meeting this sweet family and joining them for an afternoon out by the lake and it was a good reminder of just how pretty our area is.

Growing up here, I forget sometimes just how much my little corner of the world has to offer. Living just north of the lake I cross the bridge over the lake every day… and I drive home towards the mountains, with the lake in my rearview mirror. From here we can be in Atlanta for all the things city life has to offer in an hour or two or three because we won’t lie… that Atlanta traffic! ūüė¨ūüėā Or I can literally be in the mountains or mountain towns in 30 minutes or less. I love my little corner of the world and I forget… yes even with all the campers constantly buzzing down the road… that our North Georgia area is quite the vacation destination. My family history is deeply rooted around the base of these mountains and I so often take them and their gorgeous views for granted. And while I’m not necessarily a lake person… (sorry guys my heart belongs to the ocean!) I can’t deny it’s beauty either.

If you are traveling to the North/Northeast Georgia area send us a message and come see us! We’ll tell you all our favorite spots to shop and eat at + all the things you must do and see while you are here!

Now Booking… Class of 2020! | Gainesville, Georgia Senior Photographers

Hey there, Class of 2020… it’s time to book those Senior Sessions! ūüéČ

Wondering when you should book your senior session? Or maybe where or what to do with your senior session?

You are not alone! These are two of the most common questions we are asked when it comes to seniors sessions and today we’re sharing our thoughts on when and what to do with your senior session.

Our Answers…

  1. There is no right or wrong time or season to do them in!
  2. Get creative and incorporate the things you love… where do you enjoy spending your time, what are your interests, your hobbies? Bring it all to the session. Think outside of the box and share your ideas with your photographer and build from there!

Friends if you are trying to decide when the right time to book your senior session… the answer… pretty much anytime! Here we love having senior sessions sprinkled all throughout our year. If you love the winter season and enjoy winter fashions, like winter coats, boots, and hats… go for it! Book that winter senior session. Or maybe you love the colors of fall… we LOVE a fall senior session around here! Spring flowers or hanging by the water for a cool summer shoot, there is no wrong time to do your senior shoot.

When it comes to the timing of your senior session… here at Capture Thirteen we recommend making sure you book your senior session in plenty of time to meet any picture turn in dates for your school or other senior year activities. We say try to book your senior session at least 1-2 months out from any picture deadline dates. While our image turn around date is much sooner than 1-2 months, booking at least 1-2 months out will help cut down on any stress in meeting deadlines and in the event of inclement weather on your original session date booking early will give you time to reschedule and get your session in. Every photographer’s post-processing for their images is different. Before you book your session, you’ll want to check the image turn around time with your photographer to ensure you have your images in time. If you need to order prints, announcements or invitations you’ll want to make sure you’ll have time to do so.

¬©CaptureThirteenPhotography2019When you book your senior session, don’t be afraid to bring creativity to it! Think about your favorite places to be… do you love to be downtown, or do you prefer to be out in nature. Maybe you have a favorite spot on your grandfather’s farm, or you have a favorite hiking trail. Think beyond locations, think about what you enjoy… do you love to paint, or read, maybe you play sports. If you love to paint, read or draw… bring your favorite books, or your favorite piece of artwork to your shoot… or maybe even create some art at your shoot! If sports are your thing… bring your sporting equipment, or if the equipment feels like its too much bring your uniform or letterman jacket. Maybe you play in a band or you have a band you love… bring your instruments, a record player and some records or wear your favorite band’s t-shirt! The options are endless friends!

Nathan and Shelby | Woodstock, Georgia Wedding Photographers

Nathan and Shelby are married!

The day of Nathan and Shelby’s wedding the forecast predicted a 100% chance of not just rain but severe storms. ūüė¨ We woke up to sunshine the day of the wedding but not sure what the day would hold we grabbed our clear umbrellas and headed to Woodstock, Georgia! The storms rolled in with us as we arrived in Woodstock. We had stopped for a quick lunch prior to the wedding and as we ran into the restaurant the rain began to pour and the thunder and lighting began to set in. As we sat in the restaurant we watched the rain come in sideways, then felt the thunder rumble the building and watched the lightning flash. We finished lunch and friends… by the time we arrived at Nathan and Shelby’s wedding site the rain had stopped!ūüôƬ† The sunshine returned just in time!

Nathan and Shelby were married at Tuscany Italian Resturant located in Woodstock, Georgia. Surrounded by an intimate gathering of family and friends, they said I do under a beautiful gazebo overlooking their town.¬† Following the ceremony, guests headed inside for a delicious Italian meal and cannolis for dessert! And friends… we made it through their entire day without a drop of rain! The rain didn’t start again until their guests began to depart, so just for kicks, we grabbed the umbrellas and ran back out and we’re so glad we did! We literally got the best of both worlds that day… beautiful sunshine filled moments and romantic rainy day moments!

Getting to know and work with these two has been a joy and it was such an honor to capture their special day!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Kelly!

Kiki and Kyle: Canton, Georgia Engagement Session | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

The Weekends are for Adventure!

Where did you adventure to this weekend?! We had a weekend “off” from shooting, so our adventures didn’t take us much further than our computers as, we took the “off” weekend to catch up on all the things… editing, blogging and sending out galleries.

However, a couple of weeks ago we set out for Canton, Georgia to join Kiki and Kyle for their engagement session out on the trails. Kiki and Kyle enjoy mountain biking together, so for their session, they took us out on some of their favorite trails to ride. It was such a quiet, peaceful evening out on the trail and the trail only seemed to become more beautiful at every turn. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we love when our couples invite us into their favorite places and share them with us. We can’t lie, we loved it out on the trails and we’re currently contemplating, whether or our old Huffy bikes can hold up for a trail ride.ūüėā

We had such a fun night with Kiki and Kyle, and we cannot wait to celebrate with them as they start their newest adventure, next April!

Madisen and Jonathan | The Tate House | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

One of the things we have been looking forward to with this years 2019 weddings is catching up with past Capture Thirteen brides and families. Over half our 2019 brides are referrals from past Capture Thirteen brides, and friends we’re pretty excited about that! Madisen is one of those brides, we first met Madisen a few years back when we photographed her sister Kristen’s wedding. This time the roles were reversed and it was Kristen’s turn to stand by Madisen’s side as she said I do.

Madisen and Jonathan were married at The Tate House located in Tate, Georgia this spring. With her sisters by her side and Jonathan’s friends by his, they said I do inside the glass chapel at the Tate House surrounded by friends and family. With a perfectly sunny spring day, wedding guests and the bridal party enjoyed a tour of the picturesque grounds of the pink marble mansion and for a moment we all stepped back in time. Following the ceremony, and mansion tour, a reception was held in the ballroom where the bride and groom switched things up and in place of the traditional first dance invited all of their guests to join them on the dance floor for a celebratory dance. Following an afternoon of dancing with their guests, they were sent off in a sea of bubbles.

Congratulations Madisen and Jonathan!

Taylor and Cason | The Walters Barn, North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Taylor and Cason are married!

Taylor and Cason were married at The Walters Barn, located in Lula, Georgia, on a beautiful spring day in April. Friends, we’ve had so much fun getting to know these two and working with them! We knew we were in for a fun day when at our final timeline meeting Taylor said she wanted to do a mock first look with a groomsman standing in her place… and what fun we had! It was said in one of the wedding day toasts that Taylor has the best smile and a contagious laugh, and we have to agree! We laughed and smiled with these two and their crew all day long! With a day full of sunshine, laughs and smiles what more could we ask for?! Dusty blues and pretty details and a ceremony by a serene pond on a warm spring day?! Yes, please! Following the ceremony, we all enjoyed dinner catered by 2 Dog Cafe and spent the night dancing away, having a little photo booth fun and enjoying a smores bar.

Class of 2019: Alex Anne | Cumming Georgia Photographers

With graduation weekend upon us, we had time for one last senior session for the Class of 2019! We headed to Cumming, Georgia the other week to join Alex Anne on her grandfather’s farm, where we spent a gorgeous spring evening soaking in the beauty of the farm. If you follow along with us on Instagram you probably caught a glimpse of our behind the scenes fun as we went two by two across the creek and up the hill to find the most perfect tree for curling up with a good book and watching the sunset. Y’all we would take that tree with us everywhere if we could!

Congratulations Alex Anne!!

Kayleigh and Jon | Hurricane Shoals Engagement Session

We met up with Kayleigh and Jon a few weeks back at one of our favorite parks, Hurricane Shoals located in Maysville, Georgia for a Monday night engagement session. If you’re planning an engagement session we highly recommend a Monday evening, because we practically had our favorite park all to ourselves on a beautiful spring night! We took in the quiet evening and enjoyed all its beauty. We loved how Kayleigh and Jon popped in their blues and yellows against the green trees and log cabins. These two sweethearts are getting married in October and we can’t wait to celebrate with them at the Densmore Farm!

Austin and Nikki Toccoa Falls Wedding | Toccoa Georgia Wedding Photographers

Capturing our couples’ engagements and wedding days is always an honor, but that honor is even sweeter when our friends and families allow us to not only be a part of their celebration but also capture it all for them.

We once again got to kick off a new year of weddings with my family.‚̧¬†ūü§ó On March 30th, we kicked off 2019 with my cousin Austin and his now wife Nikki at Toccoa Falls, located in Toccoa, Georgia¬† The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a March wedding, it was sunny and warm and the breeze coming off the falls was just right. Surrounded by family and friends, Nikki and Austin said I do at the base of the falls at 3:30 pm on 3/30. Can you think of a more dreamy setting?! I think my favorite moments from the day came during the ceremony as little Camden held on tight to his mom and took in every second of the ceremony. It was precious! After the ceremony, we headed to The Links at Lake Toccoa to celebrate with BBQ and dancing to the sounds of the Dave Anderson band.

It was a beautiful day and I’m so honored I got to be a small part of it all!

Congratulations Austin and Nikki!

~Alison

Lucas and Katie | Kellum Valley Engagement Session

We love it when our couples take us to places and spaces they love or have special meaning to them. When we joined Katie and Lucas at their favorite spot in the Kellum Valley, it wasn’t hard to see why they love this spot so very much. Not only is this where Lucas proposed to Katie, but it is such a quiet peaceful and reflective little spot. We could have stayed in this little corner of the world for forever! So it’s no wonder Katie and Lucas love it so much. Hanging out with these two in this place was just what we needed on this Friday night. Katie and Lucas, thank you for sharing one of your favorite places with us, and for letting us capture this sweet season in life for you! We can’t wait to celebrate with you in June!
