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.❤ 🤗 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!

Hannah and Caleb | Gainesville Georgia Engagement Session

Hannah and Caleb are engaged!

Y’all it is literally love to the moon and back with these two! 🌜💖🌎 We met up with Hannah and Caleb the other week in the same place Caleb proposed in front of the moon and Earth on the square in downtown Gainesville, Georgia. On a day that was supposed to be rainy and messy… we had a beautiful spring day complete with spring blooms all around! The gorgeous weather brought the crowds out to the square with prom groups, outdoor concert attendees and shoppers but you would never know it looking at these two! We made our way around the square and took advantage of the nice day and we even made our way to the Veteran’s Park just a few blocks away to catch even more spring blooms. We had a great Saturday afternoon with these two soaking up the beauty of a perfect spring day and we cannot wait to celebrate with them in August!

Dusty and Nicole | Hoschton, Georgia Engagement Session

Our spring busy season is in full swing this month and we’ve been catching up with several of our 2019 couples for their engagement sessions! Just the other week, we met Dusty and Nicole at Sells Mill Park located in Hoschton, Georgia, for their April engagement session. We loved Nicole’s floral dress and Dusty’s blue jacket, and how they popped against the background of the water and the green leaves on the trees. After spending some time by the water, we headed to a pretty wooded path where we weren’t the only ones there… we met our first slithery friend or should we say foe of the season. 🐍😬 We’re not sure how but we all managed to keep our composure and with a little help from Dusty, our snake friend slithered on its way… but you better believe we kept our eyes on every tree and twig of grass that moved! Let’s just say we didn’t linger on that path too long! Snake friends, aside we had a great evening with these two and we can’t wait to celebrate with them in May!

Andrew + Rachel Hurricane Shoals Engagement | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Spring has sprung here in North Georgia friends!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be joining several of our Capture Thirteen couples for their engagement sessions and wedding day and we can’t wait!

We had our first engagement session of the new year with Andrew and Rachel last weekend at Hurricane Shoals Park, located in Maysville, Georgia. We had the perfect spring day for their session and loved soaking in some sunshine and warmth with them. Rachel looked beautiful in her purple dress and we love how she pops in all of the pictures! Her dress even matched her purple diamond engagement ring, which by the way we love! We had a wonderful time with these two and we cannot wait to celebrate with them this October at Koury Farms!

Class of 2019: Emily | Braselton, Georgia Photographers

Spring arrived here in North Georgia last week, but before it arrived it was very much so still winter and we had one last winter session.

Our last winter session was a beautiful senior session with Emily in downtown Braselton, Georgia. We had so much fun in our own backyard of Braselton! We loved how Emily accessorized her wardrobe with her black and white winter coat. We’ve got all the 😍’s for that coat + that champagne dress! It was the perfect look for this winter session!

Class of 2019 if you haven’t booked your senior session yet… it’s still not too late!

Why You Should Do An Engagement Session | North Georgia Wedding Photographer

The Engagement Season is Coming!!! ❤💍❤

In just the matter of a few weeks, our blog will be flowing with spring engagement sessions and we cannot wait! We’re so excited!

Here at Capture Thirteen, we love engagement sessions because they give us an opportunity to spend time with our couples and get to know them before the wedding day and it’s an opportunity for them to get to know us as well. Connecting with our couples and building relationships with them along the way are really important to us. Our three main meeting points with our couples before the wedding are the consult, the engagement session, and our final wedding timeline meeting, many times our brides attend most of these meetings, alone or with their mother or their wedding coordinator. So the engagement session provides a time in which we can get to know both our bride and groom! We love chatting about all things weddings, and we also love finding out that our couples love tacos as much as we do or sharing our favorite shows to binge watch!

If you’re on the fence about doing an engagement session, we’ve got all the reasons why you should do it! Well we’ve narrowed it down to our top five reasons you should do an engagement session! 😉

©CaptureThirteenPhotography

1.) Get Comfortable! The number one reason we love engagement sessions… it allows our couples to get comfortable in front of the camera together! For most of our couples, the engagement session is their first photo session together and that can bring a lot of nerves, even for someone who loves being in front of the camera! The engagement session will give you time to get comfortable posing in front of the camera together and will help you be more relaxed for pictures on the wedding day. By the time your wedding day rolls around, you’ll be pros in front of the camera! 😉

2.) We Get to Know You! Getting to know our couples and connecting with them is one of our favorite things about being a wedding photographer. The Engagement Session gives not only a time for us to get to know our couples better but it allows you guys to get to know us! We’re learning what poses or style of posing works best for you, what makes you laugh and how to get those genuine smiles and reactions for the camera! At the same time, we’re also learning what you don’t like… what poses seem stiff or unnatural for the two of you, or if you don’t like being photographed from certain angles. Our goal is for you to leave the engagement session feeling like you’ve been hanging out with friends, who just so happen to have cameras! 😀 We’ll be spending lots of time together on the wedding day so part of doing the engagement session is helping us all to feel comfortable and get rid of any awkwardness so that everything seems natural on the wedding day!

3.) Savor the Moment! Our third reason is a little more sentimental… you know the saying time flies when your having fun?! Well, it’s true for the engagement season as well! Whether your engagement season is 3 months or 1 year, that sweet time will fly by and it will be your wedding day before you know it! We can’t think of a better excuse than your engagement session to take some time away from your wedding planning and to do lists and just go be in the moment together and bonus… have it documented! Plus you’ll love looking back on this moment and will be so thankful you took the time to do it years down the road.

4.) Pretty Pictures! Pretty Pictures… really that’s it! The engagement session is the perfect opportunity to get some pretty pictures of just the two of you! Pictures to fill your future home, or to use for save the dates or even display at your wedding! Use this session as an opportunity to take pictures in one of your favorite spots… do you love the mountains or hanging out downtown, hiking, being near the water, or do you enjoy eating ice cream together?! Make it personal and make it fun!

5.) Take Some Time Away! The wedding planning process can be overwhelming and stressful! Use your engagement session time to take a day away from it all and spend some purposeful time together. Go pamper yourself, go relax a little and get your nails done, you could go for a trial run with your hair and makeup artist. Since you’ll have your hair and makeup done… come to your session and then go have fun or romantic date night!

Did you know that here at Capture Thirteen Photography, when a bride books any full day wedding investment (6 hours or more) they receive their choice of a complimentary engagement or bridal session! Want to learn more about our Engagement Sessions or Wedding Day Investments…

Vendor Spotlight: Acuna’s Custom Cakes | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Look at us throwing back Thursday on the blog again! 😂😂😂

This time, this #tbt is to highlight one of our favorite wedding vendors!

Bride Friends… if you’re looking for the perfect wedding cake still, today’s blog post is for you!

Like most wedding photographers we too LOVE wedding cake, especially when it’s from Acuna’s Custom Cakes!

Odds are if you’ve been following us for any length of time you’ve heard us rave about our favorite cake lady, Diane of Acuna’s Custom Cakes!

We first met Diane and Joel of Acuna’s Custom Cakes a few years back and Diane quickly became one of our dear friends. Diane’s friendship in this industry is one we treasure and not just because she makes us yummy cakes to eat! 😉 Over the past couple of years, we’ve had the honor of watching Diane’s talent and creativeness grow and just when we think we’ve seen her most beautiful cake creation yet… she makes a new one that tops it!

While we love the artistry of her cakes, we love the taste of them even more! While we’re partial to her semi-naked wedding cakes… we haven’t met an Acuna’s cake creation we didn’t want to devour! Buttercream, Strawberry, Chocolate… we’ve loved them all! lol Whenever we need a cake, she’s the first person we call.

And while we love the beauty, artistry and taste of her wedding cakes… we love the artist behind them even more. We’ve seen firsthand just how much Diane cares about her clients and how she takes interest in their whole wedding day… not just their cake. ❤

Here’s a look back at some of our favorite wedding cakes made by Diane. We can honestly say these cakes were just as yummy as they are beautiful!
