Brooklynn and Joy | Best Friend Session

“Kindred Spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” ~ Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Anne always describes friendship so beautifully, doesn’t she?!

Friends, this was such sweet and fun session and the perfect way to jump into our summer sessions this year. It reminded us so much of those summer days when we sat around day dreaming of what the future would hold while we soaked in the summer sun, listening to music and eating ice cream! Oh, the days!!!

Megan and John | Gainesville, Georgia Wedding

In the same church Megan’s parents were married in on a Saturday morning in mid-April, Megan and John were married! Gorgeous morning light poured through the stained glass windows of Mountain View Baptist Church in Gainesville, Georgia as they said their vows and tightly locked their love with a love lock.

Following the ceremony, we headed to the reception for brunch complete with yummy breakfast casseroles and of course, cake! Megan beamed all day wearing a beautiful blush dress and her mother’s veil and John looked dapper in his suit! With a quick change for Megan from her mother’s veil to a beautiful flower crown, these two were sent on their way with a bubble send off! After the send off, we headed out to catch up with the newlyweds for some post-ceremony portraits of the bride and groom. We caught up with them beneath the branches of a massive tree that has been in Megan’s family for generations and friends, it was breath taking!

Congratulations Megan and John! We are so happy for you!

Acuna’s Custom Cakes!

We first learned of Acuna’s Custom Cakes a couple years back when one of our brides had one of their beautiful cakes at her reception. It wasn’t until a few months ago that we officially got to meet Diane. Already big fans of her gorgeous cakes, we were super excited to sit down with her and talk about plans for a shoot featuring her work.  After talking and planning, we set a shoot date for the spring. After all the planning, the date finally arrived for us to meet up with Diane for an afternoon of cakes, flowers and decorating. One of our goals with this shoot was to provide brides with wedding cake inspiration! With elegant white cakes, semi-naked cakes, and cakes with a modern twist, we styled scenes for all 4 seasons and Christmas.

Here are just a few of our favorite cakes and set ups from the day. We absolutely loved working with Diane and her friends! Not only are her cakes gorgeous but they are also delicious! To anyone in the Northeast Georgia area looking for a cake for their special day, we highly recommend Acuna’s Custom Cakes!

If you are a wedding vendor or a business owner located in the Northeast Georgia area, we would love to meet and work with you too. Whether you need headshots or a styled shoot, send us a message capturephotography13@gmail.com – we’d love to chat!

Smith Wedding | Clermont Georgia

Rebecca and Steve are married!!

Rebecca and Steve’s wedding celebration started on the eve of their wedding day at the North Hall Community Center where we joined them for a night of music and dancing! The night started off with sweet stories of the happy couple’s courtship, engagement and love for one another as well as others. Following the toasts and dinner we enjoyed roasting marshmallows and dancing the night away to the sounds of the M.V.P. band.

After a fun Friday night celebration, we headed to Concord Baptist Church in Clermont, Georgia for the wedding on Saturday. After sweet first look moments and dodging a few raindrops with the bridal party, we headed inside the church for a candle light ceremony. With a church full of friends and family, Steve and Rebecca were married in a ceremony that not only told the love of they have for each other, but also represented the love Christ has for us. After the ceremony we all headed to the reception hall for cake and punch.

As it came time for the newlyweds to depart everyone gathered around the chapel stairs and lit the way with sparklers and smiles. Little did Steve and Rebecca know, they had a couple of stowaways hiding out in their car! After a quick return of the pranksters, this happy couple was on their way to their honeymoon cruise!

Kaylin and Daniel | R-Ranch Engagement

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 to also capture it all for them. So needless to say when Alison’s cousin asked us to photograph her engagement and wedding, we were overjoyed. We’ll let Alison tell the rest of the story from here.

We met up with Kaylin and Daniel at R-Ranch in Dahlonega, Georgia where the beautiful North Georgia mountains surrounded us. While I may be a little biased, everything about this session was gorgeous! Kaylin and Daniel were totally at ease in front of the camera, providing lots of sweet candid moments and those giggling moments too.  🙂 These two are absolutely adorable and I cannot wait to celebrate with them next year! Congratulations Kaylin and Daniel, I am so happy for you! And Daniel… welcome to the family!
