Coastal California Engagement Session | La Jolla + San Diego California Wedding Photographer

Swan House Wedding Atlanta Georgia

This was such a special day celebrating Christin and Mike. We had a dream team of talented vendors working behind the scenes to ensure no detail was left untouched for their Swan House wedding. Christin wore a custom Heidi Elnora Atelier gown that complemented the scene effortlessly. Cascading florals lined the fountain leading down the staircase to their intimate ceremony, where pews were set for guests.

When searching for a venue for a chic, timeless wedding, there’s truly no place like the historic Swan House. The 1928 mansion is nestled in hills of the beautiful Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. It’s made an appearance in a few films and become most well known for it’s debut in the movie The Hunger Games. It also served as the finish line for the 19th season of The Amazing Race. It features a stunning, cascading fountain on the staircase leading up to the grand estate. Hidden away just passed the top of the stairs are lush gardens that are especially spectacular in May–the perfect backdrop for an elevated garden party.

As a destination wedding photographer, I’ve seen some beautiful venues, but this one will forever be a favorite of mine. I hope you enjoy browsing more from this classic garden wedding. I’m looking forward to working here again soon.

Sharing a beautiful Rosemary Beach engagement session with you today. I enjoyed documenting this exciting time for Alexandra and David while they were visiting 30A Florida. This session was never short on laughter and sweet moments as we explored the streets of Rosemary. Golden hour on the beach with these two was one of my favorites to date. Congratulations to the happy couple!

A beautiful summer day, a couple whose love for one another is completely palpable, and a surprise rain shower made this Alys Beach engagement session quite memorable. When these two told me they spend their summers on the beaches of 30a Florida, we knew it would be the perfect backdrop to capture their engagement photos.
