From our initial meeting, I felt like I had known JayCee and Carson forever. These two welcomed me into their lives with open arms. They showed up as themselves, and allowed me to capture them as they are! Their wedding day was so precious to be a part of. From the details all the way to the exit, these guys had the most intentional day that truly represented them and their relationship! White Laurel Estate in Dawsonville, Georgia was the perfect venue for these guys! With their bridal party dressed in classic white and black colors, their guests in black tie attire, it was the classiest spring wedding!
Getting ready with the girls was so fun and helped get everyone excited for the day! The girls popped champagne on the front porch and it was SO FUN!
We went into JayCee’s first look with her bridesmaids and then right into their photos! These girls had such a fun energy that really helped set the tone for the day! Bridesmaids, bring the energy to photos… good energy changes the feel of your photos!
We then did a first look with JayCee and her dad! She got the cutest father of the bride gift for him! A tie with an old photo of the two of them! It was truly so sweet!
After the first look with JayCee’s dad, we got JayCee and Carson ready for their private first look and vow reading! These two chose to see each other before the ceremony and do a private vow reading. This allowed us to be get all bridal party photos done before the ceremony!
After their first look, we did the groomsmen photos! These guys were so fun and had so much fun with their photos. They truly brought the energy, and they hyped Carson up so well. They chose to bring cigars and their favorite college football team hat and it added personality to their photos! Don’t shy away from bringing props into your photos that feel like YOU!
Bridal party photos were next! Seeing the love that this bridal party have for JayCee and Carson was honestly so beautiful. You can tell that they pour into their people, and it was reciprocated today. A fun group that was so excited for the bride and groom and IT SHOWED.
There was a sweet in-between moment for the girls right before the ceremony! One of JayCee’s bridesmaids had all of her people make a video and send it to her (she compiled them all together into one video) and showed JayCee! These moments were so tender! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room.
Then it was time for these two to make it official!
Family photos followed the ceremony!
After family photos, these guys signed their marriage certificate and then took their first photographs as HUSBAND AND WIFE!
JayCee and Carson :: I could write a novel about how much these guys mean to me! These guys trusted me 100% in capturing their wedding day and it allowed me to work at my best. They treated me like a friend from the very beginning, and now I am so lucky to call them friends! I loved walking along side them in their engagement and on their wedding day. I feel so blessed to have clients like these two!
