Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a wedding photographer, mom to a sweet little boy (with another on the way), and wife to my high school sweetheart - who also happens to be my second shooter! We photographed our first wedding over five years ago and have since been blessed to work with over fifty incredible #kjcouples!

A Summer Wedding Day at Ashton Gardens

June 25

Weddings

back

Kelly and Zach’s love story began over 10 years ago when they met at their summer life guarding job. What started as a friendship grew into the best kind of love story, and Zach proposed to Kelly on the Atlanta Ferris Wheel on their 8-year anniversary. When we first met these two for their engagement session last year, we fell in love with their kind hearts and genuine personalities. With every look and touch they shared, it was no challenge to see they were meant for one another!

Their summer wedding day at Ashton Gardens in Sugar Hill, GA was just like them – perfect and filled with so much love & laughter. Family and friends traveled from around the country to celebrate with them. The weather turned out beautiful despite a threat of rain, and every detail came together without a hitch with the help of an amazing team of vendors! Kelly and Zach shared a first look at the place where it all began – the pool where the both spent their summers life guarding – and then said their vows beneath the wooden beams of a gorgeous chapel.

Zach and Kelly – we are so incredibly happy for the two of you! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for welcoming us as part of your family and allowing us to document this special time in your lives. We hope you enjoy this peek into your perfect day, and we cannot wait to share all of your pictures with you! Congratulations on such a beautiful start to a lifetime of love!
