We shot Alex and Lyndsey's wedding at the end of July. We were so excited that Lyndsey wanted to have a bridal session. She opted for having her bridals after the wedding so that her dress was sparkly clean for the big day and that she would feel more relaxed. We shot these bridals in the sweet countryside of south Georgia. Despite all the bugs and the south Georgia heat, Lyndsey looked beautiful!
We were looking forward to Alex and Lyndsey's wedding, especially after their beautiful engagement session at Maclay Gardens. Just like in our own wedding, Lyndsey's dad would be walking her down the aisle and also performing part of the ceremony. The venue--First Methodist Monticello--is a historic church built in the late 1800s. We just oo-ed and ah-ed over the stain glassed windows! Lyndsey and Alex exchanged presents before the ceremony, but chose not to see each other before the ceremony, except for one sweet moment when they held hands and prayed together (around a door). This day was filled with family, tears, laughter, and a great deal of love.
Alex and Lyndsey, thank you for letting us share in your special day! May your love and commitment last for a lifetime!

The south Georgia weather was perfect as we pulled up near the house that would soon be home for Anthony and Nikki. After they shared their first look of the wedding day and we began taking some couple shots, Nikki said, "I can't stop smiling!" And it was true. Her smile just wouldn't stop. The feeling throughout the day was one of happiness—true joy. From the morning photos in front the azalea bushes at their new home, to the ceremony in the historic Boston church, to the reception hall jam-packed with supportive family and friends—this was a great wedding!
This was the first full wedding we photographed. Thank you, Anthony and Nikki, for believing in us and entrusting us to document your special day. Your wedding was beautiful! Congratulations!
