DESTINATION

Harbour-Island-Wedding-Photographer-Fine-Art-Film-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Jessie-Barksdale-Photography_006.JPG

Sharing some photos from my new favorite destination, Harbour Island. This beautiful hideaway is a small island nestled in the Bahamas, best known for its pink sand beaches and turquoise waters. While vacationing there this spring I explored all the beauty Harbour Island has to offer, and of course photographed it to share with you. The islanders are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever encountered on vacation, the beaches are even more beautiful than the pictures, and it’s the perfect getaway if you’re a couple planning a destination wedding.

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.

Whenever I speak to a potential bride I love to hear how her fiancé proposed! I love how she lights up when describing how he planned out all those sweet, thoughtful details. I especially love when I get to share in the surprise and document such a momentous occasion for a couple. Pure joy.

When Tim contacted me in early November about photographing his proposal to Laura, I was thrilled! I thought for sure he was going to propose during the holidays, but he said he wanted to…
