Hello Friends, Thanks for swinging by. I am sharing Whitney and Jerome’s beautiful mansion wedding today. I really loved shooting this wedding. Great people and really good food! What else can you ask for 🙂 . The first time i met with Whitney we instantly clicked. We talked for an extended time and it felt like no time at all. I believe in working with couples that are the right fit. When the “right fit” occurs it makes for a great experience not just for the couple but also for me as a photographer. Whitney and Jerome are just straight up cool people and i am glad they brought me along their incredible journey. Congrats guys! I wish you a blessed and happy married life.

Hello Friends! Thank you for stopping by the blog. Today i have Andrea and Brandon’s wedding on the blog! This wedding was also featured in the Munaluchi 2017 Winter Print Magazine. It was a wonderful wedding from start to finish. It was such a joy capturing Andrea and Brandon’s beautiful wedding. The wedding took place at the historic Georgian Terrace hotel. Check out their story below. Enjoy. Congrats to this amazing couple!
How they met:
Brandon and I met on an online dating app. What is interesting is that I had almost given up using the app as a way to meet new people. Brandon happened to be the last person that messaged me before I deactivated my account. We conversed for about a month before we finally decided to go on a date. Our first date was at a restaurant and bar in San Antonio, TX. We instantly hit it off. After dating for about 3 months, I got word of an excellent opportunity that required me to relocate to Hawaii. Brandon and I decided we would commit to a long distance relationship.
After over a year being apart, we decided we would take a cruise. The night before we were to sail off, Brandon took me to a restaurant in the Pearl District of San Antonio. After dinner, Brandon suggested that we walk around and take in the beautiful scenery. During our walk, Brandon shared his plans in life and how he wanted me to be a part of it. He also expressed our deep love for each other. As we headed back to the car to return home, Brandon stopped once more. This time, he was on one knee with a white box in his hands, and the words “Will you marry me,” came out of his mouth. Filled with joy and excitement, I shouted “YES!”
Hey friends! Thank you for visiting my blog. Today, i have Erica and Michael on the blog! When we were brainstorming for the perfect engagement shoot concept one thing that came up was Michael and Erica’s love for music. I immediately started researching locations that would bring the idea to life. I found a disco wall and boom box wall and knew it would be perfect. Erica and Michael went to the Georgia Aquarium for a date when they first met so we incorporated that in to the shoot. Lastly, Since they are huge falcons fans we wrapped up the shoot with the Mercedes Benz stadium as a backdrop. I had soooo much fun on this shoot and looking forward to capturing their special day. Check out some images below. Enjoy!!

Hello!! Thank you for swinging by. Today is Whitney and Jerome’s Wedding day!!! So excited. They are such a fun and cool couple.

Hello! Thank you so much for dropping by. Today, i am sharing Sherell and Elijah’s amazing Houston Texas engagement shoot. Sherell and Elijah wanted a shoot that showed their style and love. I definitely think we were able to accomplish that. From the enchanting mansion to the Cullen Sculpture Garden to the beautiful Rice University campus, the shoot was simply amazing from start to finish. Looking forward to celebrating with both of them in Alabama! Congrats to Sherell and Elijah. Check out their proposal story and some images from the shoot below. Enjoy!
Our proposal is probably one of the best days of my life. It was Christmas evening of 2015 and I was home in Mississippi for the holiday. My two best friends, parents, and niece were all at home enjoying ourselves like normal. Well I was upset with Elijah because he was suppose to be coming to my house from Alabama to visit me but told me earlier that day that he wasn’t going to make it. Well I was all in the Christmas sprit and enjoying my family. I remember everything happening so fast. My niece brought me a box that was wrapped so pretty and she told me it was for me. I remember saying wow I got another gift. So I opened it and it was a note inside that said “Guess whos getting married??” I still didn’t get it. I remember saying who is this for. And before I knew it one of my favorite songs by Charlie Wilson “You Are” was playing in the back ground. The garage door was going up and Elijah was standing in my parents living room. I remember screaming.. “What are you doing here”. Everyone was screaming and clapping. He didn’t answer but got down on one knee and had the most serious look on his face. He talked about how it was time for me to see just how serious he was and how he was ready to spend the rest of his life with me. I screamed so loud when he opened the box and I saw my ring. Apparently he, my sister, and best friend Miracle planned everything and everybody knew. Even my parents were in on it. It was really exactly the way I had always dreamed and couldn’t have asked for it to happen any better.
Hello! Thank you for visiting! Its February and the wedding season is about to get started. I am excited about Kim and Andre’s wedding coming up in a few weeks. From the first time i spoke to this lovely couple i just felt a great connection and i knew their engagement session would be great. Their wedding is definitely going to be amazing. Kim and Andre enjoy hanging out at the Ponce City Market so we incorporated that into the shoot. We wrapped up the shoot in the city. Congrats to Kim and Andre. See you in a few weeks! Check out how they met and and images from the shoot below. Enjoy!
A co-worker and I decided we needed to be more visible on the dating scene. The plan was every other Friday, we’d transition from work to a night on the town! Our very first outing was January 17, 2014. We went to a restaurant nearby and listened to a local band. The food was great, but the crowd was just “okay”, so we quickly aborted the mission to go somewhere we didn’t frequent for good laughs. We walked in and Andre was sitting at the bar alone. My friend and I found a table in the back, and I noticed Andre looking at me through a mirror. To my disappointment, he paid his bill and walked towards the door. BUT – he turned back around (and of course I was looking dead at him.. lol). He later told me he was thinking, “now if I turn around and she’s looking at me too.. I’ve got to talk to her.” lol! I mouthed to him, “Where are you going?” He confidently mouthed back, “To eat someplace else. I’ll be back.” My friend and I laughed, trying to figure out why anyone would leave a restaurant to go eat somewhere else! In record timing, Andre walked back in! He patiently waited for others to leave our table and had the waitress send drinks to our table. He and I struck up a conversation shortly thereafter that led to us exchanging numbers. He called me a few days later. We wanted to see each other sooner than later but we were interrupted by the infamous Atlanta Snowmaggedon of 2014. That didn’t hold us down, though! As soon as the snow was melted and the roads were clear, Andre called to set up our first date!
What I didn’t know is the day I met Andre he had been laid off from his finance job, just that morning. He says his day of sadness was replaced with a ray of sunshine, and for that he’ll forever be grateful. Dealing with a major hardship so early on taught us how to smile during the down times and find creative ways to love each other. It taught us to genuinely be just us.
We dated for close to 3 years and December 2016 were headed Downtown Atlanta for a New Year’s Eve weekend “staycation”. Andre had dinner plans and told me to be ready at 7. I remember him being so surprised I was ready on time! We pulled up to the Polaris, an iconic restaurant in the city that is 22 stories up and slowly spins for a panoramic view. I said to him, “Excuse me?! … How swanky, sir..” He laughed and we headed up. We had a lovely dinner and Andre asked me to share dessert with him. I was stuffed, so I opted out. He insisted I live in the moment and share some with him. In true Kim fashion, I opted out again. Eventually he convinced me and I told him I would take a few bites of whatever he ordered. Once I agreed, the manager brought out champagne glasses and a “dessert” tray. I thought, “what a nice restaurant. They must bring out champagne because its New Year’s weekend.” When I looked a little closer, I saw a small ring box in the middle of an assortment of desserts. When I turned to my right, Andre was on one knee and started professing his love for me. I cried like a baby and could barely get “Yes” out! I soon noticed the workers of the restaurant were all on board and some were capturing the moment for us. Afterwards I started calling our family and friends, but hardly any of my friends in the city were answering. To my surprise, they were all together, waiting at the hotel to celebrate me! That was such a special moment and one I’ll remember forever!
