Allie and Karl had a simplistically sweet wedding on Tybee Island, GA…a place near and dear to Allie’s heart since she and her family have been vacationing there since she was a toddler.  From the beginning of the day until the end when they were both in comfy clothes dancing with friends, what struck me was their relaxed nature and complete lack of anxiety.  They are incredibly in love and find deep comfort with one another and I think their photos reveal that.  In true Life Writing Photography style, we’re going to start with some portraits and then get into the day’s order of events.

Enjoy!  And congratulations Allie and Karl!allieandkarl002 allieandkarl003 allieandkarl004 allieandkarl005 allieandkarl006 allieandkarl007 allieandkarl008 allieandkarl009 allieandkarl010 allieandkarl011 allieandkarl012 allieandkarl013 Getting ready . . .allieandkarl014 allieandkarl015 allieandkarl016 allieandkarl017 allieandkarl018 allieandkarl019 allieandkarl020 allieandkarl021 allieandkarl023

This is just priceless.

More to come from this session but wanted to share this particular one for foto friday.


Haha…this is pretty much something that occurs daily in our house in these hot summer days.  SMOOTHIES!  (It’s a great way for us to fill their bellies and sneak in spinach, carrots, kale, avocado and other healthy goodies).  Love these days that are passing by so quickly.  And love this 1.5 year old and 3.5 year old little boys even more!

I had the privilege of photographing Allison give birth to this beautiful baby girl, Riley.  I haven’t decided how much I will share of this most intimate occasion on the blog but this precious family photo seemed perfectly appropriate.  It seriously was an amazing opportunity to watch Allison and Justin welcome their first born into the world.  Thank you for entrusting me to be there with you!


Agh . . . beauty.  I tell my kids that God paints a different sky for us each evening . . . His work is incredible.
