Pallie and Andrew

Within 24 hours of announcing that I was going to be traveling on the east coast and was available for work, I received an email from my cousin's fiance, asking if they could hire me to shoot their wedding. Talk about great timing!

My sweet cousin, Andrew, and his adorable sweetheart, Pallie, got married on Pallie's gorgeous family farm in Georgia. The bride wore cowboy boots, guests sat on hay bales during the ceremony, dined on Southern BBQ and pie, and danced away the evening to a great band.
Oh, and a horse decided to join us for the bride and groom portraits.

Definitely a dream shoot for me. :)














I had to add the photo below because it's such a cute pic of my mom and brother.
Since my loyal assistant and husband, Joe, is not with me right now, I flew my brother up from Florida to help me with the wedding.
Thank you, Sean, for being so fantastic. I love you, (and you too, Mom!!)

Words cannot even describe how beautiful these pictures are!

You totally captured the essence of the day in a way no one else could have done. We feel so lucky to have had you play such an important part in our day.

Sending lots of love to you from Naples and hoping to see you again soon!

You surely did capture the day. Such beautiful pictures of a beautiful place. I love the one of Pallie and Andrew, full of laughter, jumping in the air. And I was intrigued by the photo of the wedding dress and cowboy boots - did you bring that door into the frame to create that lovely-colored private space framing the "dressing room"? I heard comments at the wedding about the thoroughness of your work and meticulous attention to detail. Gorgeous photos.

Kudos on your lovely images! Lovely wedding; the tree grove, now that's a place for guests! Suggests community and summer, and I like that. Thanks for sharing.

It was such a pleasure to have you in our home as a part of Pallie and Andrew's special day. Your work is absolutely beautiful and definitely a work of art.....thank you....I can't wait to see the rest.

I wish I could have spent more one-on-one time with you because you are such a beautiful person. We are really lucky to have you as part of our extended family. Please feel free to come back to the farm anytime.
