Caban Anniversary Session | Flowery Branch, Georgia Photographers

Friends, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… Anniversary Sessions… whether it’s been 1 year, 12 years or 50 years… just do them! Include the whole family or make it a special shoot for just the two of you! Celebrate you and your love! Life gets crazy sometimes, littles come along, grands come along and before you know it a year or more has gone by and there aren’t pictures of just the two of you anymore!

We’ve had the honor of capturing several anniversary sessions over the past year and a half and you guys we’ve loved every single one of them! We’ve loved hearing the stories of how our couples have met, how they started out their new journey in life together, adventures they’ve been on, looked at their engagement and wedding photos with them and met their children, grandchildren and in some cases even great grandchildren! We’ve even got to be a part of a few surprise anniversary sessions, which has been so much fun to work and plan! So if you’re looking for a great anniversary present for your parents (wink wink) an anniversary session is a great idea! Your mom will love it and your dad will too.

Our most recent anniversary session was with the Caban’s, shot just a few days before Christmas, in Flowery Branch, Georgia, it was the perfect ending to our year! It’s like our year has come full circle… we kicked off 2018 with a January wedding and ended our year with an anniversary session!

Here’s a look back at this beautiful winter session! Enjoy!

Now booking 2019 Weddings! | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

🙋‍♀️ Who’s entering the new year with wedding dreams and plans?!

If that’s you, friend, we want to say Congratulations!!! We are so excited for you and this season in life!

We LOVE weddings around here! We love talking wedding talk with our Capture Thirteen Bride to Be friends!

What many people don’t realize about us here at Capture Thirteen is that Capture Thirteen was formed because of our love for weddings! Capture Thirteen Photography is the combined talents of photographers Alison and Brandy. (🖐 Hi… Alison here! 😉) We each studied photography in college, and were individual photographers… crazy story we both worked for our local YMCA and never had a clue the other was a photographer or a photographer to be! Thanks to Facebook we were social media friends and were following each other’s photography there. Then one day our paths crossed again at my (Alison) cousin’s wedding when Brandy was the photographer! Then almost a year later, Brandy was looking for a second shooter for a wedding, and I had just started shooting weddings, looking to grow my portfolio and experience, I reached out to Brandy. The rest is kinda history!

We shot our first wedding together in September of 2012 and it was as if we had always shot together! We left that fateful wedding jokingly saying we should always shoot together and never solo again! Lol and that’s pretty much what happened! We shot our second wedding together that following May and the following January we started what would become Capture Thirteen just shooting weddings together… it would be another year and a half before began adding family sessions, seniors and more, making Capture Thirteen what it is today.

In a nutshell that’s how Capture Thirteen began… we’re still chasing our dreams today and would love nothing more than to fill our 2019 calendar with beautiful wedding days… maybe even yours!

We’re natural light photographers based out of the Northeast Georgia area between Braselton and Gainesville, serving the North Georgia area and beyond!

Winter Wedding | R-Ranch in the Mountains, Dahlonega Georgia

The new year has begun… 2019 is here and while we’re looking forward to all that is to come, we’re also looking back at some of our favorite moments from 2018. One of those moments was Kaylin and Daniel’s winter wedding at R-Ranch in the Mountains located in Dahlonega, Georgia. It was the perfect start to our 2018 year! We have to say this wedding made us fall in love with winter weddings!

The lodge at R-Ranch provides a warm and cozy atmosphere with its large stone double sided fireplace. Perfect for snuggling up next to on a winter day! With the floor to ceiling glass windows, you can be indoors and still not miss out on the warmth of the sun on your back, even in the winter! Plus those mountain views, are beautiful no matter what season it is! 😍😍😍

The neutral color palette chosen by our winter bride was perfect for the season and for this military wedding! The bridesmaids wore champagne dresses paired with brown faux fur wraps and carried bouquets of greenery. The bride’s wedding dress was champagne overlayed in beautifully detailed lace paired with a white faux fur wrap and a cathedral length veil. The bride also carried a bouquet full of greenery with a few simple white roses mixed in. (Tip: In the winter trees are bare and grass is dead. Bringing greenery into your winter wedding will help bring a softness, and life to the winter scene and always looks gorgeous in pictures!) With the bridal party they mixed things up a bit and the bride’s cousin Jack served as her man of honor and Daniel’s sisters helped make up his attendants. Daniel’s sisters wore black dresses that matched the bridesmaids champagne dresses and paired with black faux fur wraps and Jack wore a black suit. With the remaining groomsmen in military dress and the groom in military attire as well.

For details, they brought in lots of greenery… a mix of eucalyptus’s accented with white roses and pinecones, faux furs, candles, wood slices, and gold accented vases bring to life the elegant winter scene. All DIY by the bride’s mother!

We almost forgot to mention that our winter wedding came complete with snowy mountains tops! YES!! With snowy mountain tops, some fierce winds and a temperature of 16… real feel 13 degrees, we opted for first look moments in front of the fireplace in the lodge! We did, however, brave the cold and wind and ran outside for a few quick picture moments outside! Warming back up inside and followed by a sweet ceremony in the sun-drenched warmth of the lodge.

Following the ceremony, was a reception filled with winter comfort foods of the south… chicken and dumplings, prime rib, and veggie selections! With an assortment of personal pies, a coffee station and bottled Cokes for dessert. Guests enjoyed the sounds of the Dave Anderson Band and joined the bride and groom on the dance floor for a good time and a good time was had by all! There was so much happiness, joy and friends genuinely having fun we couldn’t resist but join in for a few! Yep, we may have even hit the dance floor! As everyone enjoyed the dance floor we couldn’t help but notice how the sunset hit the dance floor through the windows. So we snuck out for a few brief moments with the bride and groom to catch those golden rays and we’re all so glad we did! As this joy-filled day came to an end the bride and groom were sent on their way under the light of sparklers.

The thing we loved most about this special day was the overwhelming feeling of joy and happiness that hit us the moment we walked in the door, until the minute we got in our cars to leave!

We hope you enjoy looking back at this gorgeous winter wedding as much as you do! Who knows, maybe we’ll be joining you on the dance floor next!

Happy New Year! | North Georgia Photographers

© Capture Thirteen Photography | 2018

2018 what a year you were!!

We tried narrowing down to a few of our favorite moments from 2018 and as you can tell it was a little hard! These collages, are always such a sweet reminder of all the special moments you guys invite us into and allow us to celebrate with you. 2018 had some mountaintop moments for us but it also had some deep valley moments. Looking back and thinking forward though you can’t have the mountains without the valleys, so we’re thankful for both! We’ve learned so much from 2018 and have so much to be thankful for! As we’ve said goodbye to 2018 we feel overwhelming thankful for the year it has been and for all of our friends who joined us along the way.

Whether it was joining you on the excitement of a new journey in life together, the documenting of friendships, the joy of a new little one, the milestone moments, or the celebration of another year spent with the ones you love, thank you for letting us join you! We are so honored you’ve allowed us to capture these moments for you and join with you as you’ve celebrated life!

Thank you so much for joining us in 2018 friends! We’re looking forward to so much in 2019… new friends, new little ones, engagement sessions, wedding days and so much more! 2019 we are ready and we cannot wait for the new friends, journeys and adventures you will take us on!

Something Blue | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

We can hardly believe 2018 is already coming to a close, this past year has flown by for us! As we’re looking back at our year we’ve noticed something… 2018 was our something blue year! If your a regular friend and follower of ours on Instagram, then you’ve probably noticed the blue theme on our grid.  Personally, we have LOVED all the blue around here, and for me… it’s one of my favorite colors. I mean with all the different shades, tones, and moods of blue how can you not love it?! From bride attire to cakes, all the way to the small little details of the wedding day we have loved all the ways our 2018 brides have added their something blue.

So we’re reminiscing a little today and sharing with you some serious something blue wedding inspiration as we look back at some of our favorite ways our Capture Thirteen brides have added something blue. We seriously hope you guys love the color blue as much as we do and find a little inspiration for your own special day!

1.) The Attire!

Whether it was tucked away in the details of the attire, or a bold statement piece like a blue tulle skirt we loved how our couples brought the blue themes to their engagement sessions, styled shoots and wedding days. Here’s a look at some of our favorite ways our brides and grooms added something blue to their style for their wedding day!

  • Rosy and G. carried their something blue theme from their engagement session all the way to their wedding day and friends we loved it! For their North Georgia waterfall engagement session, Rosy and G. chose to wear the same shades of blue they were planning to use for their September wedding day. Rosy wore a beautiful blue tulle skirt and G. wore dark blue slacks with a lighter blue shirt. They used the exact same shades in their wedding day for their invitations and flowers, while G. and his groomsmen wore sharp blue suits, Rosy’s bridesmaids wore dresses detailed in blue. Plus they even displayed their engagement pictures at the reception!

  • Or if you really love blue like we do, go even bolder in your attire… how about a blue tulle skirt, on your wedding day?! Our Blueberry bride Mona from our styled wedding shoot at a blueberry farm (Pleasant Union Farm, located in Canton, Georgia)this spring wore a beautiful dusty blue tulle skirt paired with a lace top and a blueberry crown! This blueberry themed shoot has all the something blue inspiration you could ever dream of from the bride’s attire, to the details, all the way to the cake! If you’re looking for even more inspiration click here!© Capture Thirteen Photography© Capture Thirteen Photography

2.) The Cake!

  • Our friends Acuna’s Custom Cakes provided lots of bold blue wedding cake inspiration for us at the beginning of the year, but we also loved the subtleness of the blueberry cake from our Blueberry wedding shoot with them in the spring. The cake is the centerpiece of the reception so why not have some fun with it! Here are a few of our favorite something blue cakes from this year! Want even more blue cake inspiration check out our Something Blue cake shoot with Acuna’s Custom Cakes!

3.) In the Details!

  • Details, Details Details! This is where we most often find our something blue at our weddings! Whether it’s tucked away in the details so that only you will know or is one of your accent colors or one of our favorite details… your blue shoes! The little details of your wedding day are the perfect place to add a little something blue! Here are a few of our favorite ways our brides tucked away something blue into their day!© Capture Thirteen Photography
  • With a blueberry-themed styled bridal shoot, it wasn’t hard to add some something blue to the details. Having extra blueberries on hand helped bring this something blue theme full circle and added a special touch to the detail shots. (Bonus tip: Consider having extras of small detail items for your photographer for detail pictures… like flower petals or blueberries! 😉 )© Capture Thirteen Photography© Capture Thirteen Photography
  • Your shoes! This is probably one of our favorite ways our brides include their something blue! Who doesn’t love shoes?! Whether you choose heels, sandals, flats or even tennis shoes, you can never go wrong with a great pair of blue shoes! Plus it’s a super fun way to add a little style to your day!© Capture Thirteen Photography
  • In your wedding paper suites! For our bride Kristen, blue was an accent color for her special day, so she chose blue invitation suites to send out to her guests! Bringing along the invitations for detail shots went perfectly for her day and went right along with her blue shoes plus her groom and groomsmen’s dark blue suits!

No matter what you choose to do to include as your something blue, whether you choose to have fun with it or sentimental with it just be you! You can’t go wrong here friends!

Wedding Day Tips | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

© Capture Thirteen Photography | 2018

Wedding Day Tips

With every Capture Thirteen wedding investment, we meet with our brides one final time prior to the wedding day, during this meeting we offer our brides tips and suggestions to help make the wedding day timeline run smoothly. One suggestion we always make and highly recommend to our brides is on the day of the wedding having all of their detail items together in a box ready for pictures. This way everything is together and there’s no stress trying to remember everything you want to be included. One box of the bride and one box for the groom… bc he has details too!

Another tip is to have your detail boxes ready prior to the wedding day, this way on the day you can just pick them up and go. For our brides, we suggest including your something old, something, new, something borrowed and something blue! Or any sentimental or heirloom pieces. The perfume you are wearing on your special day, any jewelry your wearing or carrying, handkerchiefs, your veil and wedding rings, shoes, and bouquet. Also, include all of your paper suites… wedding day invitations, wedding programs, even your dinner menu! Other things to consider are gathering extra pieces from your wedding day details so it could be items such as flower petals from the flowers, the ring boxes or pillows,  Of course, we can’t forget your groom! A few suggested detail pieces for your guy… cuff links, his shoes, cologne, his tie, ring, a watch, and boutonniere.

Regardless of what items you choose to include in your detail pieces, choose the pieces that you will treasure, that have significance to you! There is no right or wrong pieces to include here, every wedding day is different and every bride different and each detail shot is special in its own way to each one!

Here are a few of our favorite wedding day detail shots from our 2018 weddings to give you and our 2019 North Georgia brides a little wedding day detail inspiration!

Nic and Kristen | Winder, Georgia Wedding Photographers

Nic and Kristen are married!!

In an intimate gathering of friends and family, Nic and Kristen said I do beneath the gorgeous stained glass windows of the First Christian Church, located in Winder, Georgia. Kristen and Nic’s fall wedding brought the return of the jewel tones we love so much around here… bridesmaids in flowy emerald green dresses popped against groomsmen in navy suits. Dark-centered poppies 😍 accented bouquets and boutonnieres bringing everything all together. Following the ceremony at the church, we all headed to the Winder Community Center for a reception filled with all things sweet before sending the newlyweds off in a flower petal send-off.

Friends, there was so much we loved from this wedding day… from the stained glass windows to the warmth of the church, to the dark-centered poppies, plus let’s not forget, those emerald dresses and navy suits! However, what we absolutely loved best was the presence of joy that filled this day from the moment we walked in. Friends, we could seriously photograph this day over and over again!

Congratulations Kristen and Nic! We’re so honored we got to celebrate with you!

Chapman Family | Flowery Branch Georgia Photographers

It’s that time of year again, where our weekends are filled with beautiful families and lots of cute kiddos!

The sun may have been a tad tardy to the start of our mini sessions, but by the time of the Chapman’s session the sun had fully arrived and we had a gorgeous evening on our hands! The Chapman family joined us for the very first time this season, for our fall mini sessions, in Flowery Branch, Georgia. We had the best time meeting them and working with them.

We just love how all the deep jewel tones return to us in the fall, don’t you?! Their mix of deep blues and purples was the perfect pop off of the warmth of the cabin! This vibrant and bright session and sweet family was the perfect ending to a perfect day!

We still have more to come but we just want to say thank you to everyone who joined us for fall minis this year! We can’t wait to do it again next year, and we hope you’ll all join us again!

Morgan Family | Flowery Branch Family Photographer

It’s that time of year again, where our weekends are filled with beautiful families and lots of cute kiddos!

We’re so glad the Morgan family joined us again this year, for our fall mini sessions in Flowery Branch, Georgia! The Morgan kiddos have grown so much since we last saw them! The Morgan’s were the first family of the day, and while the weather forecast told us sunshine would be with us, it was a bit tardy to our session. The session weather started a bit dreary, and it may have even spit rain on us towards the end, but with a trusty clear umbrella and cabin porch for shelter, we made the best of it! Honestly, we didn’t even notice the dreary, with all the bright smiles from Issac and Ansley, and the cozy warmth of the cabin.
