Ashley and Matthew: Enotah Valley Wedding | Blairsville, Georgia Wedding Photographers

On a beautiful September day, with warm sunshine streaming down through the trees, Ashley and Matthew said I do with family and friends gathered around them at Enotah Valley, located in Blairsville, Georgia. There is such a serene beauty to Enotah Valley, unlike any other venue we’ve been too maybe it’s the sound of the water rippling through the creek that flows across the grounds, or being completely surrounded by nature but there is a peaceful beauty that overflows here and makes you feel at home upon arrival and made us never want to leave!

We had the sweetest time celebrating with Ashley and Matthew at Enotah Valley. We loved how Ashley wanted to take time on her special day to carve time out for special moments and memories with the ones she loves. Whether it was spending a few quiet moments with her mom as she got ready or the laughs and chatter going on during hair and makeup with her girls or the teary-eyed moments of first looks and letter exchanges with her father and step-father, she filled her day with memory-making moments.

The sweetness didn’t stop there either, Ashley and Matthew chose to exchange letters between one of the giant trees at Enotah Valley, just moments before their first look! When it came time for the ceremony, Ashley arrived at the ceremony site in one of Enotah Valley’s vintage cars. As the ceremony ended the thunder began to rumble and the rain started just as we made our way into the reception. Where guests enjoyed eating and dancing for the rest of the day away and we snuck out with the newlyweds to play in the rain! We may have all gotten a little soaked, but we’re so glad these two didn’t mind the rain one bit! We headed back in for cake and more dancing before the new Mr. and Mrs. were sent off in a rainy sparkler celebration!

Congratulations Ashley and Matthew!!

The Browning Family | Cleveland, Georgia Photographers

Here in our little corner of North Georgia, we went from a 90 degree October to a grey and very rainy October in a matter of days. Unfortunately for us that grey and rainy weather arrived at the peak of our fall family session schedule. Don’t get us wrong, we definitely need the rain and are grateful for it, but it has made for quite the challenging month, trying to get sessions in and making weather calls! For photographers having to make weather calls is the worst!

Thankfully, we have some of the best families to work with and the skies finally cut us a break! Which meant we were able to meet up with the Browning family in Cleveland, Georgia a few days ago for a beautiful family session! The Browning’s are a family we’ve had the honor of growing with… we’ve been photographing Kristen and Chris since their wedding and we love that they have continued to join for our fall family sessions. Watching Charlotte grow up in front of our camera lens has been so much fun! This year, Charlotte melted us with her personality and we’re pretty sure she’ll make you melt too!

Hannah and Caleb | Corneila Community House Wedding | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

What better way is there to beat the summer heat than celebrating with friends and family!

Hannah and Caleb were married on August 10, 2019, at the Cornelia Community House, located in Cornelia, Georgia.

One of our favorite parts of this sweet wedding day were the sentimental details that were tucked into their day. We loved hearing Hannah tell the story of the rose gold ring she was wearing during their first look… it was a gift to her mother, from her father the day she was born and her parents had gifted it to her that morning. During the ceremony, their wedding rings sat in a heart-shaped wooden tray, that the bride’s brother had carved and given to Hannah as and engagement gift. While the ceremony and reception were filled with wood pieces made by Hannah’s dad for their special day.

Hannah and Caleb said I do with friends and family by their side and following the ceremony, guests were treated with the nice cool treat of ice cream from Mountain Fresh Creamery and cake!  Following the dessert reception, guests headed downstairs for dancing and enjoyed a fun swing dance by the couple, a playful mother-son dance and a sweet father-daughter dance.

It was a beautiful day and honor to celebrate with these two! Congratulations Hannah and Caleb!

Class of 2020: Gracie | Gainesville, Georgia Senior Photographers

We met up with Gracie and her mom a couple of weeks ago on the square in downtown Gainesville, Georgia. A Monday night senior session is never a bad way to start the week! On this particular Monday night, we got the added bonus of having the square practically all to ourselves! This beautiful quiet evening in Gainesville, couldn’t have been more perfect. The leaves on the trees in the middle of the square have already started falling, giving this first of September shoot, a fall like look, but don’t be fooled we’re still hitting the 90s here in North Georgia!

We had the best time with Gracie, soaking in the serene beauty of a normally bustling square and the leaves on the ground, have us that much more excited for fall.

Congratulations on your senior year Gracie! We hope it’s your best year yet!

Return to the Kellum Valley | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

The week going into Lucas and Katie’s wedding weekend, a 100% chance of rain and severe storms were forecasted for pretty much all of North Georgia. While we hoped and prayed the weather forecast would change for the better, it only seemed to be getting worse. By mid-week, Katie had contacted us to let us know that they were working to make changes to their original wedding day plans.

When we first met with Lucas and Katie at their booking in January, they shared with us their dreams and vision to have their wedding day pictures and reception at a close family friend’s orchard located in the Kellum Valley. It’s a spot they hold close, a place they enjoy spending quiet time, where they got engaged, where we took their engagement pictures and where they dreamed of celebrating with close friends and family. Knowing how much this place means to them, our hearts broke for Lucas and Katie, but we all knew it was the best plan of action.

With the wedding day pictures and reception moved to a local church in Cleveland, Georgia… we made plans for a post-wedding bride and groom shoot at a later date in the valley they love. (All while still holding out hope for an extremely wrong forecast… hey it happens!)

The day of the wedding came and so did the rain… lots and lots of rain. Even with all the rain and changes, to have seen Katie and Lucas on their wedding day you would have never known anything was any different than planned. These two had and kept the best attitude and never lost sight of what was truly important or beautiful about the day… their marriage.

Katie had said to us going into the rainy day… I know it will all still be beautiful and friends it was. We didn’t return to the valley because their wedding day pictures aren’t beautiful, because they are! They had a beautiful wedding day filled with friends and family with sweet memories made. We returned because we know how much this beautiful place means to them because it was their dream and vision to have their portraits taken in the valley!

Soon to be married friends, this is something we tell all of our couples… don’t stress over the weather! Rain or shine your wedding day will be beautiful! Rainy day weddings have a romantic feel to them that just can’t be captured on a bright sunny day. Don’t get us wrong… we lovers of the sun and want beautiful days for all of our couples, we pray for beautiful sunny days… but we can see the beauty in the rain too. Just don’t be afraid to dance in the rain or frolic in the sunshine! You can always put your wedding dress and suit back on!

Katie and Lucas did just that! They didn’t let the rain get them down and in the end, they got the best of both worlds… romantic rainy day moments and sunshine-filled valley moments.

One Year Anniversary, Rosy and G. | Flowery Branch, Georgia Photographers

Happy Anniversary Rosy and G!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again! Anniversary Sessions… whether it’s been 1 year, 10 years or 50 years… just do them! Capture the milestone moments and memories and all the ones the fall in between! It’s the only way to freeze time and the best way to travel back in time.

We can’t believe it’s already been almost a year since we celebrated with Rosy and G. last September at their wedding in Gainesville, Georgia. One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is when our couples return to us, to continue to allow us to capture their milestone moments and memories. It’s an honor we treasure.

Rosy and G. have become sweet friends, and we love keeping up with them, so naturally, when Rosy approached us with her desire and ideas to do a one-year anniversary session we were more than excited to start planning. Rosy and G. trusted us to get creative and let us run with some ideas and we’re so thankful they did! Rosy used a dusty blue throughout her engagement and wedding photos, so we decided to continue to build on those colors by deepening our shades of blue and bringing in pops of jewel tones. With beautiful floral arrangements provided by Downtown Flowers, bringing everything together and the serene setting of The Farmhouse at 30542 located in Flowery Branch, Georgia we spent a wonderful evening with these friends and we even all enjoyed a yummy cake anniversary cake from Acuna’s Custom Cakes.

Katie and Lucas | Cleveland Georgia Wedding Photographers

Surround yourself with the ones who make even the rainiest of days bright!

It didn’t just rain on Lucas and Katie’s wedding day… it was basically monsoon outside. Everything planned for their wedding day pictures and their outdoor reception all had to be changed but if you could have seen Katie or Lucas on their wedding day… you would have never known anything was any different. With a 100% chance of rain and the threat of severe storms looming… we all held onto our hope for these two to still have their wedding day visions and plans happen. However, in the few days leading up to the wedding, it began to become very clear that the weather was just not going to give in.

Katie and Lucas kept the best attitudes, and while we were all bummed we wouldn’t be making it back to the Kellum Valley, for the wedding day, these two never lost sight of what was truly important and beautiful about their special day… their marriage. With grey, gloomy skies, and buckets of rain falling outside, it couldn’t have been any brighter inside with their friends and families by their sides.

I’ve always heard that rain on your wedding day is good luck but at their reception, a guest told me that for every drop of rain that falls on your wedding day, there is a blessing dropped into your bucket. And I think I like that idea so much better than luck!

Katie and Lucas, with all the rain on your wedding day… I think your blessing bucket is overflowing! One thing is for sure, we know we’ve been blessed to work with this sweet couple.

{And while we didn’t make it back to the Kellum Valley with them on their actual wedding day, we went back to the place that means to much to them just last week and re-created some of the original wedding day visions and dreams in the valley they love.  So stay tuned 😉  }

Dusty and Nicole | The Barn at Tatum Acres | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Fridays are for Friends right?! Gathering your friends and family together to celebrate, eat cake and dance the night away is even better!

Surrounded by family and friends, Dusty and Nicole were married on a beautiful Friday evening at The Barn at Tatum Acres, located in Jasper, Georgia. A white barn full of rustic charm, a ceremony site with a view, and a bridal party that kept us laughing was the perfect recipe for this gorgeous day. From sweet first look moments to laughs with friends, all the way to end of the night there’s not a moment of this day we didn’t love!

With Nicole’s long flowy veil catching the summer breeze perfectly, and bridesmaids in a rose blush popping against the grey of the groomsmen suits they said I do. Their ceremony with a view was followed by inviting friends and family into the barn for a true southern dinner… fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, green beans, and friends… a Bojangles Biscuit Bar with biscuits in the shape of hearts! Our southern girl hearts and stomachs have never been happier over a wedding day meal!  Following a delicious meal, everyone headed outside to the dance floor, where the bride and groom surprised their friends with a fun first dance mash-up! After dancing, roasting smores and enjoying some cake, these two sweethearts were sent off by happy cheers and sparklers.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Tiller!

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! 😬😂 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! 🎉

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.

© Capture Thirteen Photography

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!

Let your photographer know your interests and share your ideas for your session! Maybe your not sure how or what to do for your senior session. Sharing your school activities, interests, favorite places, etc. can help your photographer make suggestions for your session.
