rainy day wedding
we’re no stranger to working in the rain. we’ve photographed countless drizzly weddings and engagement sessions and, honestly, we’ve grown quite fond of them. they feel cozy and spontaneous all at the same time! this particular wedding was a stunner with so many fun details, but one of my favorites were the bride’s shoes – pink seychelles!

two things i love: non-traditional bridal accessories and couples who embrace the rain on their wedding day.

brittany & nathan are two of the dearest souls we know. their wedding day was a complete joy to photograph for so many obvious reasons, but more so because brittany & nathan care deeply for the people around them. it was a perfect day, with perfect weather; nothing out of place and no detail forgotten. we were thrilled that our friend and fellow birminghamian, laura mccarty of marked, designed the invitations – they were stunning! debarge vineyards is such a dreamy venue tucked away in the rolling hills of north georgia. outdoor mountain weddings are easily becoming our favorite kind of weddings… just sayin’.

we just can’t get enough of these two. natalie and adam are as sweet as you’d imagine. they are flirty, cuddly and down right perfect for one another. in the time leading up to their session, natalie and adam told us about their love of downtowns and rooftops, so we thought what better time than to go exploring together. natalie and i (emma) met over over coffee one day a few months back to chat about photography and life. she wasn’t engaged just yet, but she mentioned that when it did happen, she’d be giving us a call. just a few weeks ago, adam got down on one knee and popped the question in the very spot where we ended up doing the first half of their urban engagement session. to say we all got a long great would be an understatement. we laughed our entire way through this session and we can’t wait to hang out with these two kids again!

destination mountain wedding, w & e photographie
we can’t believe lauren & alex’s dreamy mountain wedding at the high hampton inn has already come and gone. it seems like we’d been anticipating this one for quite some time. i’ll get to gabbing about these two amazing people in a minute, but first let chat about the smaller details. lauren & alex chose to have a destination wedding in one of the most charming mountain towns in north carolina. cashiers,nc is nestled deep in the blue ridge mountains and it’s full of amazing views, tasty eats and quirky antique shops. the high hampton inn gushes rustic charm and has the feel of a camp for grown-ups… dirty dancing anyone? the foggy, crisp mornings, mountain views, and sprawling dahlia garden were enough to get us scheming about how we could stay at the inn permanently. i love that the inn encourages guests to pick dahlias to keep in their rooms during their stay. how fun is that? with it’s rich history, amazing hospitality and iconic red rocking chairs, we were in photographer heaven! here’s the thing… we love destination weddings because we get a chance to truly connect with the environment, the couple and their loved ones.

you may remember lauren & alex from their engagement session with us a few months back. it was super fun for us to watch them love and be loved by everyone at their wedding, including us! lauren is a photographer, so she gets it. her and alex went above and beyond to make sure we were “having a good time” and “eating enough” throughout the evening. we’re so thankful for their selflessness – even on their own wedding day.

finally, if we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a hundred times, but we’ve never seen rain ruin a wedding. we love that lauren and alex tied the knot under the open sky, even if that did mean enduring a bit of drizzly rain. we’re so thrilled with the unique images from their rainy ceremony. and as if it wasn’t perfect enough already, the sun popped out just as lauren & alex were pronounced husband and wife – as if God was shining down on them with his blessing.

hipster engagement on a bike
this session brings back so many good memories. we photographed jordan & audrey’s engagements shortly after we moved back from spain. we literally frolicked all over their grandparent’s property nestled in the appalacian foothills. we still love the images of them scooting down an old dirt road on this tandem bicycle. what a dreamy way to say, adios summer! we’re ready for you, fall.
