georgia wedding

Ben & Hannah

10-26-2019


 

This wedding took place in a town that is very near to our hearts, Washington, GA. It is where I spent a good portion of my life in high school growing up and my parents still call it home. So for us, it was a bit of a reunion seeing many familiar faces. I first met Hannah in High school, so when they contacted us about doing photography for their wedding, of course we were super excited!

Hannah and Ben are two peas in a pod! It was so cute capturing their romantic shots after the I Do’s and seeing just how well their personalities played off of one another. It’s nice to be a part of something so beautiful happening in the lives of old friends and being a part of making sure it goes perfectly!

The ceremony took place at Callaway Farms, in Washington….And the coolest part? This is the first wedding there of many to come. The farm is now an official wedding venue owned by the brides family and just look at that ceremony site! !t’s such a beautiful backdrop with a lot of gorgeous options for photos that we enjoyed taking full advantage of!

The reception was held at the Fitzpatrick Hotel in the downtown square of Washington, Ga. It’s always a classy option with an amazing garden area out back that helps seat large groups of people. During the reception, there were super emotional speeches and a lot of beautiful moments then it quickly moved into an amazing celebration full of dancing and laughter and we have to say that the dj was so good! As the night went on they danced with their friends and family before they drove off as Mr. and Mrs. Ritchie! Congrats to the happy couple and we are excited for what the future holds for your lives together!

Charlie & Hannah

9-14-2019


 

Some months ago, we got to meet Charlie and Hannah and their dads for their engagement session and very quickly started to have a great time getting to know them and joke around. Fast forward to Saturday after speaking with them and Hannah’s sister/maid of honor helping plan for months, the day went beautifully! We started off with the girls at The Bobbi Pin Salon in Martinez and enjoying them getting their hair and makeup done while watching the game.

After a little while, we all headed over to Wesley UMC just down the road for the rest of getting ready and the ceremony. The ceremony went off without a hitch and they tied the knot in front of all their friends and family and you can see the pure joy as they were announced husband and wife and they walked back up the aisle together as the Folsoms! Directly after the ceremony, we hung around to do some family photos at the church and a few with the bridal party and couple but wanted to focus on getting most of those at the next location, the Savannah Rapids Pavilion. Once they arrived there in their limo, we walked down to the bride and photographed the entire bridal party and some more individuals and a sweet moment where Jack and Charlie hugged each other in a loving brother moment. Shortly after we dismissed and took the bride and groom for some couples photos around the area briefly and they rode back up to the reception at the top of the hill where would meet back up with them before they were introduced into the reception.

We had previously worked with Amplified events and The Silver Palm Catering and so we quickly felt at home and had an amazing time working with the perfect team and they came in straight into their first dance and then some speeches from the maid of honor, one of the best men and Hannah’s father. It was clear they were all very proud and loved the couple together, Jack had some funny stories and a little bit of a roast of his brother which was hilarious! Rebecca had a big reveal of her wedding gift and speech prop. We have to say that the gift (seen below) was very fitting for the chemistry majors and was made custom with a lot of thought and intention which was really cool! Hannah’s father then came up to thank everyone involved behind the scenes and gave a very warm thank you to the coordinator which was also both of his daughters’ elementary school teacher.

The night continued on into eating some amazing dinner, a father daughter dance along with a lot of other dancing, cake cutting and pure joy that seemed to be the general feel of the room. Come time for the exit, we coordinated everyone into two lines with the glow sticks they had purchased and they had one last big kiss and drove away into the night as newly weds! Cheers to the Folsoms and we wish you both many happy years of marriage and look forward to seeing what the future holds for you!

Jeremy & Julianna

Jeremy and Jules are such a cool couple! We met them at a bridal expo last year and come to find out we had mutual friends that we have done acting headshots for quite a bit. We met up with them later over coffee and just hanging out and remember it like it was yesterday and just talking about their love for one another and all things Harry Potter among a bunch of other films that we love to nerd out over! We have to say that we had been looking forward to this wedding for a long time for a lot of reasons and it was such a perfect day! They have surrounded themselves with so many fun, loving and hilarious people and the special touches like her Grandfather’s pocket watch and the green dresses and ring that goes with Julianna’s birth stone were so personal and perfect! The girls started off their day at the Hilton Garden Inn in Augusta and then everyone met up at the beautiful Savannah Rapids Pavilion for the ceremony and reception. We know they’ll continue to be an amazing couple and we’re excited to see what married life will hold in store for them!

Vernardo & Amanda

We have had the honor of working with Ian a few times and also, we got married at the Windsor Manor so it holds a special place in our hearts! When Amanda reached out to us from Ian’s recommendation, we were ecstatic to be able to work with him more and finding out that they met similarly to how Morgan and I met was really cool! Once we finally got to meet this amazing couple, it was all smiles and good times on their wedding day! They are such a positive force of a couple and we really look forward to seeing more of what the future holds for them together as a happy married couple!
