Anyone I’ve talked with for more than 5 minutes knows how much I love our neighborhood and the community here. I feel like it’s our little pocket of Atlanta- walking distance to our favorite ice cream shop, excellent coffee, good eats and drinks, a sweet farmer’s market and, above all, filled to the brim with awesome people that we love- like Kayla & Davis. We pass their house almost daily on our walks, we chat at the neighborhood dog park, we say hi as we pass on evening jogs- we’re part of the same little community and we love it. We also happen to share a love for the NC mountains so when they told me they were planning their wedding at the Bascom, an art museum in Highlands NC, I was pumped!
Since I’m still in the fog of having a new baby (Evy was 9 days old when I shot this wedding!), looking back at all of the beautiful images helped me remember how important it is to capture the story of the wedding day- not just stunning images. While preparing this blog post, I really feel I’m celebrating their marriage all over again!
Kayla is a vibrant, thoughtful, down to earth person- it makes perfect sense that she has delightful, beautiful friends. Their natural, easy smiles throughout the day radiated their love of Kayla and their happiness for her- and I love the mix of those dresses:
And THIS is why we love the mountains of NC so so much! Just stunning scenery around every bend, hidden streams, glistening greens, filtered light- I could go on forever. On Kayla & Davis’ wedding day, a light rain was falling, but in the woods under the old, broad trees, it was relatively dry. So thankful they were up for a little adventure because these images are some of my favorites, ever. I just feel like they capture the feeling of the woods I love so well.
So glad to see Norman was in the front row at their wedding! Pups are a big part of life- if they can be present, they should be. (plus, who can pass this face and not relax and smile?)
